Hey guy's I've decided to work on my drawing for fun and to bring my skills up to a level I am happy with. I have plenty of ideas and stories I would like to tell through drawings, 3d and animation but am being held back by advancing in the more technical and software side but not the creative.
Time to change that 8-)
Here are some sketches I did as a start last night / this arvo.
Feedback and advice on the drawings as I post would be sweeet
I can't say how well you're progressing not knowing at what stage you were at a 1-6 months ago, but you seem to be guiding yourself in the right direction. Your hand studies are pretty good, try moving onto to eyes, lips and noses, it will help you piece heads together a bit more readily. Also check out the first page of the question and discussion page, there's plenty of links to good usefull stuff.
You appear to be pretty good at keeping tabs on what you need to be working on, so just keep doing what you are doing...also avoid the bum chin, I don't know if your ref(s) had one, but that can turn into a bad habit. Also, welcome to the forums and make sure you keep posting back.
BTW - LOL at Tien!
I'll take your advince and have a look around the thread for some good sources to follow! Oh the bum chin too just happens that I picked three people who have that cleft there :P But I do have a problem doing jaws too square.
Thanks winter too. That charming fellow is Sir Isaac Newton. Awesome name.
Okay here's another page I have done tonight. I'll probably cruise around different parts of anatomy for the rest of the week and do some focused studies on the weekend .. I hope
Here's some of my 3d work too.
Here are a few new updates. Didn't do any drawing during the week which sucks.
More to come.
With your eyes, avoid eyelashes for the time being and concentrate on the shapes.
Also, your 3D stuff is frickin great.
Hopefully some more proper studies coming tomorrow and next week if I can be bothered after work.. it would be great to still be studying but the more time you have just means more time you waste so ought to knuckle down!
Thanks wck you seem to notice the little details haha
If you guessed the one with no hair you are correct!
This is a good little site to help. You are doing very good! Hope to see more progression.
I'm really enjoying just drawing with no real goal other than fun and development and having no pressure feeling this is what I need to do for a living.. though it will play a part in my ULTIMATE goal
I had a quick look over some loomis pdf's and started to look at shapes in low poly and can see my hands improving just by looking at them differently even though I hadn't drawn for almost a week since my last post.
When I've finished my rounds of anatomy I might start having a crack with other mediums but for the moment I've still got a long way to go with the old classic pencil. I figure if I can do interesting characters and compositions in only pencil then I will be able produce something even better with a more expressive medium :P
I'm about done with hands for a while, I don't want to linger too long on one area for now but can see improvement from my earlier hand studies which will hopefully improve more drastically once I start reading these loomis and other lessons sitting on my hard drive.
At the moment I've blocked in temporary geometry to get the scale right then will replace out each item with the proper detailed and textured version.
The tv's sporting a simple colour map with shadows right now but later on a bit of grime on the buttons and finger smudges and reflections on the screen. One of those rbg colour symbols would look sweet with the logo too... oooh it's in colour :winky:
Otherwise, i think the model looks really good. LOL. i remember i had a t.v. like that at my house years ago!
