Now there’s not enough lifetime to learn it all! I noticed with the restructuring, the links on the drawing certificate PDF the Sheldon Borenstein figure drawing links don’t work any more (there could me more). Is the certificate program changing?
Thanks! I’m loving it all!
Your pears have a lot of energy to them!
@gordanknezic thanks a lot! My first introduction to cross-hatching (or at least what made me really think about it) was the Russian drawing course by Iliya Mirochnik. Working on anatomy with him really helped in doing portraits too. Then I found Alphonso Dunn and got his workbook, however that did not translate to any skill I could do. So I resorted to just trying different things such as just straight-line cross-hatching that kind of ignored the form and just focused on the values. Then I tested out trying to carefully follow the form for cross-hatching. I eventually settled on a blend of the two, but still often find it very frustrating.
I’m not worthy, @stuart-1188 ! I lurked over on your posts and was in love with how fluid your figure drawings were. That’s going to have to be my next challenge. Thanks for the compliments…some days are success, some days are not. 😉
We’ll call this one 80, although I’m not really posting them in order anymore. I’ve finished the challenge, just having a hard time getting them all posted here without being spammy. He’s my absolute favorite. Using only two color mixes: a blue mix and an orange mix.
Here’s the pen sketch I did prior.
78 & 79 ….Uniball signo pens again this time in a lovely dark green. The watercolor sketch was an interesting study in a limited palette. My watercolors are just hobbyist dry set so I don’t know their exact names but the colors were close to yellow ochre, burnt sienna, and a dull purple (definitely not dioxazine). The burnt sienna, which I thought was too brown, gave me a pleasant little surprise in her cheeks.
