ehhh, not so great ending to the year personal and art life wise. So here’s whatever I drew until today. 2020 new year new me lol.
Not sure what to say other than sitting poses and shit is hard lol. Failure of a night, fucked these up then went straight to procrastinating.
just a couple faces from imagination. I like the first one tbh.
Hands continue to be frustratingly hard lol. FInger and fingernail shapes kill me.
from some thread on /ic. Trash.
More hand studies and a clothes/fabric study.
figure/gesture studies. Pretty self explanatory.
Figure study on the left. Me trying to figure out knees on the right. Still not too sure about how to draw them/simplify the shape.
More Cloth/Fabric studies. Honestly, much harder than I expected. Always figured once I get comfortable with the human form clothes would be an after thought, fucking nope lol. Can’t wait for this to click, right now it’s just frustrating every time. Just gotta keep brute forcing it and reading up material I guess.
More figure studies, always avoided drawing the figure from the back, figured it was time to stop doing that lol.
More of the same really. Should have followed these up immediately with some doodles from imagination.
the smiley says it all.
Been a while since I studied portraits.
From imagination. 2stiff.
Fuck folds. Straight up.
This Naruto doodle is the result of me lowering opacity and redrawing about 4 times. Sitting pose + folds? fuck my shit up fam.
As of writing this post, this is my last study that I did.
At the beginning of last week I actually scheduled a day off from my dayjob on Friday so I could really put my shit in high gear-studying wise. Went to bed thursday all night with full intention to study my ass off the next day.
Woke up at 4am with the worst headache plus sore threat I’ve ever had, which developed into the worst cold/flu I ever had, this went on through the week, just my luck. Monday? this developed into awful congestion and fucked up sinuses. Missed more days of work, spent out my ass for a doctor’s visit + antibiotics.
FInally, things have cleared up. So I’m back to drawing. If all goes well, I’ll be posting on Sunday night with a ton of studies I do over the weekend, *crosses fingers*.
Collection of studies. Learned a ton and overthought quite a bit. Lots of anatomy, posing, gesture type shit. learned that learning how some of the muscles and stuff work make a big difference in learning how to draw them. From Sept-Oct
I started out doing the same dumb shit I usually did when I tried to study, which is basically copying an image. I didn’t learn shit from this. Still suck at hair and clothes and most everything but yeah.
From here I started trying to learn the shapes of what I was drawing, understanding how muscles, joints, planes of the face etc actually worked. Not much here is pretty but It was a lot of figuring stuff out. Plenty of failure here too as too many times I fell back on copying a pose or a face and 10 layers later ending up with nothing.
Faces, the thing I’m most comfortable drawing yet feel so far away from nailing, collection of faces off pinterest, didn’t learn much, guess why.
