What my drawings lacks in planning, they make up for in suckyness!!
I woked on this drawing last night and I was pretty satisfied with how it turned out. Well, looking at it now, all I can say, ist that the drawing is ruined. It's stiff, and it has all of the problems that Maxetormer has allready pointed out in my earlier attepmts. Now, I do not hate it completely, I like how the colours are turning out, and well, it has the potential to become a good picture. All I need to do, is to plan the gesture and proportions properly and restrain from rendering in the early process. Also, mabye a bigger paper will do better next time, esp for the planning of perspective and composition.
dCept, naw, I don't envy you, I'm happy on your behalf. (RIIIIGHT). No, seriously, you are improving alot allready. Just make sure not to take too much of all the sugar you get ;). I'm using PS so far, btw.
Neoknocker, Thanks :).
why can't I change the title?!
I have started doing this master study by Bouguereau, "The Flagellation of The Christ". I started out by drawing Jesus first, but I'm gonna do the rest of the "main guys" later. It's drawn on an A3 sheet and I still need more space to draw the whole figure. I'm not sure wether I'm gonna combine several sheets for one big drawing, of if I'm going to draw the figures seperately. I must say that drawing after the old master really opens my eyes for the more subtle shapes and values. Every artist should (imho) do this at least one time during their lives.
Early progress, for those who are interrested..
What I have done so far..
