    Axim, that hand is crazy smally. Same with the mouth, too, but overall this looks like a step in a good direction. It could do with some more contrast in the values of the figure and background, too.

    Our lifedrawing model was late, so we drew a skeleton! Exciting. My teacher wanted me to do more implication of line, rather than finished lines with this one, so this is what she got!

    Also: Title thumbs up.

    She wanted him to construct lines in a sketchy way, where you don't put them for every shape, but rather make them suggest the shape. In this method, one line is actually a substitute for many more lines of the actual shape. Kinda like you don't draw all the bricks of the wall, just put a few bricks in concentrated groups to note what this wall is made of.

    I'm having great difficulties using this method, got any tips, Toji?

    Yeah, I noticed that, too.

    Axim - try comparing the size of your hand to the size of your face. For me, I can stretch my thumb and pinky from my chin to my hairline...in your picture, there's no way your guy could do that (and they're supposed to have bigger hands! And I apparently have small hands)...just try to find certain ratios - like "oh, the length of my nose is the same as the length of my finger" or something, and then apply that knowledge to your drawings.

    Yeah, it's pretty much what Mayday said. You use a few lines to describe the form and allow the viewer's mind to construct it based off of your rough suggestions.

    Mayday: The best way I can think of to do it, to keep drawing the same thing again and again. After the third or fourth time of consciously trying to make he lines more minimal, you should start to loosen up and start doing it. Make sure you keep stepping back from your drawing and looking at it as a whole, so you don't get caught up in the tiny details.

    JCM: The drawing is pretty solid, but that texture has got to go. It reminds me of 1997 Geocities websites. It's way too digital looking. If you really want a crumpled paper texture, go crumple some paper and scan it. I promise you it will look infinitely better.

    Corgi-

    While the production on those two peices is very impressive, it should not go without noting that you need to work on the form of the head. The first one's features are not working. They need to have something to do with the form of the skull, they are too compartmentalized (as in- this is the nose, then this is the lips, and there is the eye. The form should be fluid enough that those compartments are not so obvious)


    Also, while the second one has a much better job with features, the placement on the shoulders is unnatural.

    Had to do an assignment based on a made up theme park, and create some kind of parade or parade float for it. I chose to do a Mayan theme park complete with its very own Mayan God parade. Then we had to loosely construct them via foam board. Drew a lot of inspiration from that one time I went to Epcot.

    Ah Puch: Mayan God of death
    His costume is one of those costumes where the hands are on the ends of sticks that the person underneath the cloak holds. He's also wearing one hell of a fake skull head. On the fabric is how Ah Puch actually appears in Mayan manuscripts.
    AhPuch.jpg

    Ixtab: Mayan God of ritual suicide
    Made a very strange rig for this costume. The person wears a harness with a large, but lightweight "structure" on their back, which is made to represent a crude gallows. The rope is simply attached to the back of their neck, not around it, while a small dummy of a Mayan woman is attached around the bottom of the persons neck to make it appear like the whole thing is a walking gallows. Its unclear whether the images of Ixtab are actually the goddess herself, or of just a Mayan woman made to represent her.
    Ixtab.jpg

    Yum Caax: Mayan God of the hunt
    His costume mostly consists of a person on stilts wearing a very large mask to make the head appear far larger than that of the person's underneath.

    haha it's all good. I'm just 17 and haven't actually considered art as a college major... and now that I am, I'm scrambling to learn all that I can as fast as i can. It doesn't really help because the only way I can get better is through practice, and practice takes time that I don't have. The AC makes me realize that I have such a long way to go.

    I see what you mean. Thanks for pointing that out for me. I probably wouldn't have progressed much without it. As for the shoulder of the second one, I drew the body way way way too small for the head, knew what I was doing, and was too lazy to change it. but it's no excuse. I'll be working on it.

    Ignore the seam in middle, he's not stitched together yet. :P

    @RA:

    USE. BIGGER. BRUSHES. I mean, it looks like you started with them in some places, but what purpose does the hacthing serve? Get the form down as simply and broadly as possible, don't just dick with a bunch of scribbles that don't serve to describe the form.

    In defense of those cheesy books, they are actually not a bad thing at all to have. An arsenal of different techniques to use and refer to is always good, as long as you can take it in context and don't rely on them to make you an amazing artist.
