Hi there... My name is Vinicius Camolesi. I'm 23 years old, almost 24, and started to think seriously of art about 2 and a half months ago. I'll show you all the stuff I'm been doing for that time. At least what is worth showing.. hehe
Critiques are most than welcome!
Some random chick faces... Very bad...
Link from my moleskine, done with cool grey markers.
More on the next post
Actually I tryed getting serious about art in the end of 2009, but it didn't work properly... I hope this time I get it right.
This was me experimenting with markers, really bad results. I really need to get a tablet and start training to paint...
This was pretty much what I have done last week.
All from imagination, except the ones that have the PM and REF writen next to it. PM was posemaniacs and the other some random stock photo... I wasn't trying to make a good shadow with values, just to block in a way I could define the musculature.
From now on, I will try to update this thread as much as possible. Hope you guys help me in that "quest'... Hehe.
And finally... wooooooff... This is what I did today:
Some random poses, all from imagination.
I can see some progress in the anatomy, poses and lines, but I don't really know how to continue the study I've been doing... Think I'll just stick with it for now.
Good start, at least it looks like you're drawing a lot. Some, not all and mainly on the guys, the torso is a bit short; it looks this they don't have a pelvis for the legs to attach to. Donn't blindly copy, but think about each part of the body and how they all fit together.
wow, you have a good eye for bodies in motion. The poses in your imagination drawings are convincing and have a good sense of balance/weight.
I agree with Black Spot about the pelvis- something tends to be amiss in that region. But it's nothing that some drawing from references and a short read on anatomy wouldn't fix ^^
I like your experiments with markers. I think it might be beneficial to your skills to try different techniques, even before getting a tablet. Maybe something that let's you block in shadow areas quickly.
Noses, most from photos.
Random characters. I saw the pose of the girl in a photo.
Study, no ref.
This is my share for now, It's been a pretty busy week, so I didn't draw as much as I wanted.
impressive start a lot of hard work is obviously going on here, i guess just keep doing what your doing do as many anatomy studies as u can to attack weak point like you diud with the m=noses, do life studies ect. You have good design sensibilities when it comes to your characters ect so keep that up.
i think seeing your own progress is just a slow process as you look at your wor everyday but if you keep the work rate up you will be able to look back in a few months as=n see the progress, just dont except it to be mega fast too quick but it happens just from the act of drawing constantly so i have learned
Hi vinicam, I must say, good work!! I did notice many incoherences in anatomy, sometimes in faces and some times arms/legs/ etc. If I were you I would start reading some anatomy books. There are good ones for anatomy drawing for artists. Be sure to check your local library!! I see potential but as Andrew Loomis says: No matter how great your talent, talent has to work with kowledge to do anything well.
I think that is some of the best advice there is at this stage (which I'm currently also in).
I'll be passing by again soon, be sure to check my sb !!
BEHOLD. You're about to witness us...
Ok, this week works(most of today):
- Tried to do at least a study a day, but didn't come as planed...
- And a "fineshed sketch" I did today... Maybe will paint this subject someday, when I learn how to paint... lol
I realized something... I really don't know how to copy something. You can see at my drawings, whenever I try to copy something straight from reference, it came like shit and all out of proportions. But when I just use the photo as a reference and do my version it come alot better, you can clearly define wich is wich in this post.
Some more work:
And more, from today:
On some (again not all) you're making the lower half of the leg short and a bit weedy. Keep proportion in your head at all times, put it down and come back to it in an hour and try to look at it with fresh eyes.
Thanks for passing by, this thread need some movement, but is my fault also, this last week I was so tired from work that I didn't have done much drawing at home, also the heat that is making here is overwhelming, my room is sooooooo hot I can't even sleep well.
You are really good with a black ink pen (or what it may be). I really love the monster from the first post.
and yes, the leg thing ofcourse.
On the multi-legged person look at the length of the lower leg compared to the upper part on the ones that are standing. They should be a bit longer. You tend to do it more on the males.
For your anatomy you could maybe look at separate parts of the body? Just looking a muscle structure etc. I’m nowhere near good enough to really give advice but I did find that doing that helped It’s clear that you’re really looking to improve so I’m looking forward to seeing the progress you make
You're putting in a lot of mileage here friend, that's great!
One thing I noticed though is you tend to go straight for contour and details; I think you'd benefit greatly from taking a step back and learning to build up to that with gesture and constructive anatomy. Doing that would help you keep your poses from getting stiff and make sure your forms read well even without shading, and with how much drawing you're already doing I'm sure you'd improve quickly.
Anyways, just a thought. Keep working hard ^_^.
