Day 11 finished work had a lay down feeling pretty shattered – fed up of making excuses tried to have a look at anatomy again think I am going to fail the 100 day challenge I am just producing poor sketches for the sake of it because I want my badge lol I really want to learn anatomy I am going to study one limb at a time because it’s so confusing for meJanuary 12, 2021 at 3:49 pm #1096236January 12, 2021 at 4:35 pm #1096438PaulDidierParticipant
Hey Curtis. I like your last sketch. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Anatomy studies can be very difficult. I’m going to be starting a second 100 day challenge soon and plan to make anatomy part of it.
For me, anatomy has always been difficult because it’s so analytical. It’s difficult for me to get excited and really charged up doing something like that. But I definitely need to know anatomy better so I’m going to try to figure a way to do it and make it interesting/exciting.
Also, doing drawings that you don’t like is important. It’s a great motivator. Please don’t be discouraged, instead be determined.January 13, 2021 at 5:40 am #1097429
Thanks Paul, appreciate that I think I feel the same with anatomy I want it, I need it but its so difficult ha ha like you say though drawing it and trying to commit might not be fun but hopefully it will start to appear in my figure work more and more, like most people I can sit and copy a figure pretty well if I give myself time, but I am not learning anything really and I want to be able to change the pose to my liking if I want, purely based on anatomy knowledge – one day!January 13, 2021 at 4:02 pm #1098450January 14, 2021 at 3:09 pm #1100131January 15, 2021 at 4:17 pm #1101732January 16, 2021 at 4:52 am #1102341January 16, 2021 at 1:58 pm #1103070katParticipant
So nice! I wanted to do this kind of technique for my second attempt at this copy. It is so difficult. All the hatchlings drove me crazy and I just lost the essence of the pose. You did really well!January 16, 2021 at 2:20 pm #1103096
Thanks Kat I basically outlined, then heard glens voice in my head saying its flat 😂 I used a h pencil to start the hatching, realised I had no idea what I was doing, then I have some super sized B pencils and tried to follow the forms as best as I could and pretend to have some confidence in my marks.January 16, 2021 at 2:29 pm #1103132katParticipant
😆 Yes, that’s the best when you just go for it with confidence. I am going to try to watch the live demo on Monday.January 17, 2021 at 10:49 am #1107827January 18, 2021 at 3:31 pm #1110804
