I'll try to sketch something daily. May be doodle or finished sketch illustration character design paint anything to help me learn and practice. Heres todays.
Just a quick doodle to start the day
Now I want to be regular
Nice anatomy studies, in some drawings the proportions are a bit out of hand, buth in most you manage to fit everything together well.
The muscle study is a bit... exagerated and disproportioned, but I guess you were aiming for get every muscle in the right place rather than corect size and proportion.
I like the nudes you drew in particular. Hope to see more
All the best,
Check out my SB and please leave a comment or something
You have good stylizations, but I think you need to keep up with the anatomy studies to build on your foundations.
click and crit
Hi cannibalcarnivale, dac
Thanks for coming in and your precious comments.
@dac: I agree my anatomy knowledge is very much out of proportion. And I struggle a lot to put them at place. I hope it gets better after I draw like 1000 of those
@cann: yup learning the anatomy slowly
Very cool shaping of the shadows!!!
Post 13 really shows some nice improvement on your anatomy and on a tricky pose!
All the work here seems very clean and orderly, don't be afraid to do some messy sketches and explore the drawing a little bit.
One of the best pieces of advice I got along the way is it doesn't need to be perfect the first time. Don't feel you need to finish a drawing or clean it up.
Look at Glen Keane (one of my all time favorites) a lot of his rough work is super messy- when he likes something he can clean it up- if not there's no time lost fiddling with making it all shiny and rendered.
Yes he's a cartoonist but the same principle applies to life drawing.
There's no right way to do it, just experiment a bit and find what works best for you .
Thanks for the cool advices. For the messy drawings, I actually draw very light on the paper ( the construction and messy lines ) and then re draw over them with cleaner version. But I think I got what you mean that I dont need to spend much time cleaning every drawing as every drawing may not be perfect.
very nice figures, i'm liking the shapes you'v used within them, seems like your pretty well aware on how to construct the body. i wanna see you do some studies, like get some bridgman, hogarth and vilppu booooks, combined with memory and life drawing it will greatly help even moreeerrr. also draw something that isnt figure related, like draw stuff around you, still life, object etc. keep up it!
Exon needs your critique!
Thanks for coming in Exon-Ion.
Thanks for your great suggestion. I'd surely buy those books. Im little more towards the characters right now and have target to do minimum 1000 human rough/ fair/ studies in the next few months. May be after that the first thing is environment and still life
Different style on this one
