    Day 14

    Today was a really productive day. I spent a lot of time watching lectures from Ilya’s Anatomy of the head and neck course and also drawing some skulls and bones. It’s awesome how anatomy can complement the structural studies. I feel like I’m getting to a deeper level of knowledge with head drawing.

    First I drew the cranial and facial bones (only those that affect the external aspect of the skull), then I moved to a cephalometric points study and wraped up with some skull drawings from observation (photoshop) and from imagination (toned paper).

    Day 15

    Yesterday I made some quick head drawings from observation and also from imagination.

    Graphite is such a terrible media to scan. But I think it’s still better than it would be if I had taken pictures, since I had no proper lighting.

    Day 17

    Today I watched the last classes from Renaissance head drawing and focused on the last assignment. First I did some 5 minute warm-up drawings (graphite on toned paper) and then some 45 minute ones (sanguine and conté white crayon on toned paper).

     

    I also had the chance to draw some people on the subway today. It was a really fun experience to do these quick studies from life.

    Day 18

    Today I spent the entire day focusing on some personal projects, but I managed to do this quick drawing of an orcish elder from imagination. It took about 25min

    Day 19

    Today’s been a really good day. In the past months I spent too much time studying and watching classes, but I didn’t really dedicated any time at all to creation. So I decided to focus on some personal concept art projects, designing characters and environment. This is my first attempt at creating a character. He’s an orc druid. Here is my ideation for the head/face and also some head turnarounds (still in progress).

    Day 20

    At this day I drew just a few sketches. I wanted to know if I could remember all the important bones of the skull and draw them from imagination. I did only a profile view, but I was happy to see that I could already do it from imagination in a satisfactory way.

    The second drawing is from a guy in the subway

    Day 21

    Today I focused on head anatomy exercises, mainly on the muscles of the head. I did a drawing based on goldfinger’s cadaver head, which is an assignment of Ilya’s anatomy of the head and neck course. After that, I spent some time creating more refined sketches of my orcish character, as well as more positions in the head turnaround.

    Day 23

    At this day I started the 3rd week of Ilya’s anatomy of the head and neck course, which is focused on the shoulder girdle bones. I did some studies from observation, drawing bones such as the clavicles, the sternum and the scapula in different angles

    Day 24

    Today I took a break from the assignments and spent some time focusing on personal projects. As I posted some days ago, I’m creating a character, and here is the beginning of the rendering phase.

    Day 25

    Today I had the chance to keep studying the anatomy of the shoulder girdle. This is also a part for Anatomy of the head and neck course.

    It was kind of shocking for me to learn that our first ribs are so high towards the neck. I had never paid close attention to that before and thought that all ribs were totally beneath the clavicle level.
