More Michael Hampton anatomy studies. Lower half this time.
idk, feels like the pelvis stuff helped.
Figure drawing on the left. Felt a bit more confident in drawing but I don’t know, it’s wasn’t a super tough pose. Second pose is from imagination, little more confident but the proportions are wonky but idk. the struggle continues.
aye, 3 hours back to back nights.
Took my advice from yesterday and studied anatomy.
2 hours of torso/arms anatomy from michael hampton’s book.
Hour of clothes/folds studies. Still lost af.
10 minutes doodle from imagination because I’m sleepy af becuase I’m laxy af and started studying 2 hours later than I should have.
3+ hours tonight. Hey, we’re making progress.
Start of the week! Let’s see if I can stick to the checklist I thought up in my last post. Pictured above is 30 minutes of timed gestures and 1 hour of figure drawing. We’re on track! I’m having so much trouble with these forms that I’m thinking I should study the anatomy more directly. So, after this blazing start what did I do? I procrastinated for the next 7 hours haha fuck me!
Welp, the night wasn’t a complete failure, I was able to do 35 minutes of folds studies:
So I got like ~40% of the checklist done. Let’s try again tomorrow!
It’s so easy to fall off the wagon. So easy. Basically didn’t draw shit for a week. The routine is obvious by now, waste time during the week, make it okay by promising to make up for it during the weekend, be a lazy fuck and don’t do jack shit. Well almost jack shit, managed to kick myself to get 3 hours in Sunday night.
a first for the blog, went through a couple pages from barbara bradley’s clothed figure book in a sketchbook while at work.
more figure drawing and timed gestures. still ass at the torso, still ass at tits and ass, still ass at the lower body etc etc.
lazy fuck time skip. this is what i did last night, more figure drawing more of the same shit plus I was rusty from being a lazy fuck. I think I need to come up with a more practical schedule, i adhered to that schedule i posted a while back for like a week.
30 minutes of timed gestures
1 hour of figure drawing(dont avoid hands/feet)
1 hour of cloth/fabric/folds study.
1 hour of portraits/faces.
1 hour of drawing from imagination.
5 hours a night, it’s totally doable and not super stressful but im a lazy fuck so yeah, lol.
