The sketch of Haman is to show how i draw (and think) when im figuring out anatomy, light and shade and stuff. I try to not copy light and shade and instead create my own. This requires anatomical knowledge bla bla bla.. (:
The study of the seated male is shaded from imagination but its fairly close to the original. I think serratus/lats/ribs are OK. Ribs require more work tho!
Abdomen is pretty lame. Will rework it completely! Will also draw the legs i think.
Hey, I like your shading but your stuff is remembering met a bit to much to burne hogarth, everywhere only muscles, being attached nowhere
It's much better to study anatomy from inside out, so it is easier to understand movements and perspective. stay concentrated ^^
Hey man thanks for the feed back in my sketchbook, you should add a link to yours in your sig. I can see a bit of what people mean about construction in your studies, thanks for also sharing the link to Hummel1danes construction thread, had a quick skim through looks very very useful.
Be good if you cloud get to life drawing at some point as you clearly are learning the principals I am sure applying them to real life observation will really help you along.
Been very loose. Partly cus looseness (is that a word lol?) is very important, partly cus i woke up with some serious wrist pain. Its prolly the arm muscles at the part where they recede into those thin rope-like tendons where the problem is (thanks anatomy training!) Could be the cold setting in, could be strain... We can only wait and see! ^^
Been figuring out boxforms in space. I luuv dem boxes...
Next step will be more in-depth study of spine/ribcage/pelvis. Will be a lot more easier when i finally get mah skeleton. ^^
And yes, that is Jack(?) from Nightmare before christmas...
I should also add that i have come to realise that perspective is the single most important thing in drawing. Drawing with depth that is.
Then started to draw the muscles on toppa dat. Learned about insertions, its awesome cus even if the muscles is stretched or compressed the insertions is in the same places ^^
Next step was to shade it. Trying to make it as 3d as possible. Shapes will be more organic in the future. The important thing for me was front- and sideplanes of the ribcage to give it depth. This kinda includes the abdomen (abdominis/oblique) aswell.
Count: Thank you. I try to always shade from imagination but i will try some pure memory drawing! (: Also, is that Gail as your avatar?
Thanks for your time! (:
PeteJ: First i must know the figure more. Then the creativity will flow with awesome compositions and shit, all from imagination. I have some big plans...
But stay tuned, im gonna paint hercules with the erymanthian boar soon for an assignment in school. (:
Thanks for your time! ^^
Now to the update! Ill just let the pictures speak for themselves... ^^
