I now use this thread to post about my current projects, paintings, drawings, and otherwise. Please refer to the latest page in the thread, or the page mentioned in the thread title, to see my latest project. My previous OP is below.
so after doing a couple of iScribbles with mully and chicoblue, as well as watching Rankenphile's progress, i have resolved to draw/paint every day until i'm satisfied with my abilities. that will likely be never, so i'll be doing this for a while.
first: some recent stuff and old stuff. then: loomis studies.RECENT NON-LOOMIS STUFF
here's a picture of the joker that i did, i'm quite proud of it
me, chicoblue and rane (i'm on the left)
some selfportraits that i did a few months ago.
my entry into the recent SE++ forum battle
and a large portrait of GG Allin that i did. i'd just watched some math specials, so it's done as if it were a continuous space - cut it in half and put the left and right ends together, and it'll form a contiguous portrait.
i'm working through Figure Drawing for All It's Worth - right now I'm focusing on proportion, mass, weight, action, etc since those are my major major
weaknesses in figure drawing. eventually i'll graduate to musculature, rendering, perspective, etc.
basically i'm going along with the book.
so today's drawings: proportion studies, mannequins, and gestural weight.

i couldn't figure out what was up with the woman, until I realized that i drew her with a male rib cage/shoulders. i'll do some more female proportion later today and tomorrow.
This is loomis' 'stuff to make your leg look convincing' page.
i have a lot of trouble figuring out which way to do the disc/hip arrangement - i'm assuming this'll come with practice, but can anyone point out a consistent thing i'm doing wrong?
i'm quite proud of these. i've only been reading and practicing loomis for a few days (those sketches aren't pictured, because they suck) and already i'm seeing improvement.
so yeah. watch this space, because i should be posting many more sketches.
