After many years without drawing I decided to start from scratch but, this time, with the goal of becoming a very competent traditional artist. Not only do I want to draw good, but to paint good also. One of the reasons for this is that I always loved drawing as a child and the other is that I want to become better at my profession (3D), so listened to many people and returned to basics. Time to learn all the foundation of art.
I'm treating this as my "personal" shared log of drawings, as I'm not expecting a lot views as I'm quite at basic level. I'll get started now.
I've started reading the Andrew Loomis book, Fun with a Pencil and I'm simply drawing still life. I'm trying to drill the habit of drawing everyday, 30-60 minute sessions. I'm starting lightly so that I don't burn out or scare myself. Still, I feel overwhelmed by the path I know I have ahead of me. I have to force myself to not think about it. I'm not really sure if reading the book and still life drawing is the correct path I should be taking, but I had to start somewhere.
So, some drawings from the past few days. None is finished, as I got frustrated with some and satisfied with others.
This was supposed to be a sugar jar.
My rubber and a simple cube. Not sure if I should continue to try and shade things or if I should just focus on form.
Some form of tomatoe.
Training my hand at drawing good circles. My lines are all squiggly, I think I'll keep on practicing.
Same with these volumes.
A thick glass jam container. Stopped just before the eliptical lid. Elipses kill me just like circles.
A tape dispenser.
A horrible atempt at my sharpener and a small flashlight. The flashlight wasn't at this perspective, so I'm not sure how it turned out that way.
A post from an action figure I have laying around. Failed attempt at trying to get the basic shape and orientation of the left leg.
Some "sphere" training for heads, right off the Loomis book. Turned some of them into cartoony faces.
I have a hard time with circles and with discovering the hidden lines to form the elipses.
