My professor told me that if I wanted to create something in 3D, I should first attempt to create it in 2D. That would give me a better understanding of showing dimensionality. I think I passed her little test.


Any critiques and comments are welcome. Thanks

THEonlyZACKGORT,

Welcome to the forum! :) We're happy to have you here. :)

I think these studies are very sophisticated and well~considered ~ nicely done! And thanks for posting them. :)

We do have a hand study thread here ~ would you mind if I later moved your work there? :) I know there are a ton of threads here, so it's no big deal...but if you don't mind, I will include your work with the hand study thread. :)

Not much time to comment more at the moment, but great to see your stuff, and hope you will post more of your work! :)

Cheers, :)

THEonlyZACKGORT,

ROFL, there has been so much activity here that I haven't gotten back to your thread til now...I think these are really nice studies, I take it you are left~handed? I think it's great to do as many of these types of hand studies as possible...you will really increase your drawing range and the practice is what will make you better. I would try some looser, more gestural hand studies as well. Gestural / structural drawings are important for giving drawings a sense of life and movement. What artists influence/inspire you? Look at their early work, in books, on the web, etc., and note how some of the great masters' initial sketches for more finished works were always loose and relatively free in their approach. I think it would also help if you started doing Master Copies. This is a wonderful way to learn to draw. We have a Master Copies thread here:

Master Copies - Post Your Copies From The Great Masters! 2D/3D D/T DRWG/PTG/SCULPTURE (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=257446)

I have been recommending for people to do 7~10 Master Copies / week to get into the habit. Most people have found that doing even 1 or 2 has greatly helped them to see.

Also, if I have not already mentioned it, why not join us for the Open Figure Drawing Workshop 004?

Now OPEN!!! Open Figure Drawing Workshop with zhuzhu and Rebecca Kimmel 004 (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=278425)

Tutorials, Workshops, Anatomy Reviews & More ... [links within] (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=273525)


Links to Open Figure Drawing Workshops can be found in post #3 in the above link.

Basically, the Open Figure Drawing Workshops (or OFDWs for short) are 2 week long workshops in which photos of nude models are posted as reference for digital or traditional drawing or painting. I usually provide some feedback, and you get to see how a number of other artists interpret the figure.

There has been some really cool work posted! Definitely check out OFDWs 001, 002, and 003 if you get the chance. :)

OFDW 004 has been in session for 1 week. It has another week to go.

Feel free to participate in this or any OFDW. Even though a new OFDW kicks off every 2 weeks, people are free to post on any OFDW for as long as they want...though most people move on the most recent OFDW.

Hope to see you there! :)

Cheers, :)

THEonlyZACKGORT,

Hey there, :) I just posted this (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showpost.php?p=2678068&postcount=24) in the the Announcements (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=258100&page=1&pp=15) thread. Basically, in order to keep things streamlined, I'd like to have people name their personal threads according to the same naming convention. As such, might I have permission to change the name of your thread to:

Anatomy Thread of THEonlyZACKGORT

? Thank you, :)
