NOOB,

Dios Mio, can it be? WORK from you! :eek: :scream:

Great to see, my friend. ;) I REALLY like your 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th drawings. Very nice work here ~ I'm seeing a lot of potential with the 3rd drawing in particular, the closeup of the torso. If you'd like, I can post up a little demo later of how to reapproach / improve this piece. Overall, I'm quite happy to see your work here ~ as long as you and pushav don't fill this thread with spam, I'm glad to see it in the Anatomy Forum. ;)

With respect to the title of your thread ~ any chance I can change it to "Anatomy Thread of NOOB"? You knew this was coming...;)

Let's see some more work, NOOBsters!

Cheers,

Nice work, NOOB! :)

I think the main thing to work on is the relative size of the head to the body. In each of the pictures, the head seems to be a bit small. The drawings of the bodies, however, are really nice ~ particularly in the first drawing! I also like the sensitivity of your linework. Who knew that beneath that goofy facade lay the heart of a draughtsman? :thumbsup:

Cheers, :)

stupid heads,its cos i drew all the heads last,cos i was idiotic.

but i got sum nice compliments from the peeps in my class. If u looked up hard enough u cud probably find my ego,damn twas big.

Cool,i'm glad my lines are showing more sensitivity,i was reading sum bridgman and looking at some of your print outs during our breaks,guess the influences are finally showing.

think i flopped a bit in this class *tiredness*

the girl had strange proportions,like a small head,small breasts,huge hips,reminded me of a sum renaissance michelanglo/rapheal type women.

These are pretty nice, NOOB ~ particularly the first one. I think what you really need to work on here are the hands ~ currently, in several of the pictures, she looks to be wearing oven mitts, heehee! I do this too, but it's worthwhile to do some dedicated hand studies.

I think you should look at silver point drawings by Fra Filipino Lippi. Amazing stuff. I'll try to post links, but feel free to run a search yourself. I have a book of his silver point drawings, and they're just amazing!

Cheers, :)

NOOB,

That first piece in particular is pretty nice! Do you feel that you do better on the shorter, or the longer poses? You seem to do quite well when you're given the time to focus on details. :)

I would recommend checking out the work of Andrew Wyeth ~ his watercolors and pencil drawings. I think he's still alive ~ not positive, though. Living his crazy life, somewhere in Pennsylvania, I believe. :)

Keep posting. ;)

Cheers,

i dunno,my line work in the short poses looks better and more free,but the details in my longer poses look good,and the line work a bit bleh!

tryin to combine the two but i'm struggling,i'll check out the artists u mentioned.and i'll do some master copies soon...

didn't have any warm up gestures sketches today :( the lecturer said i need to stop hashing so much and relax.So difficult!!!

especially when u surrounded by people that are 10million times better than u!

NOOB,

If you like Gesture Drawings / Sketches, then you really ought to join in on the 15 Minute Sketchathon (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=295498), which is a Sticky at the top of the Forum. :) Lots of AWESOME work going on there, and a great chance to do either digital or traditional Gesture Drawings!

What I have been recommending to folks is that they take the same pose, and do 3 different drawings from the same pose, in 2, 5, and 15 minute increments. If you do a lot of these on a regular basis, your work is guaranteed to improve!

Cheers, :)

i'll try MsK,but time kills me.

...............

Our main objective was to make a *drawing* today and not sketch,even with the 5mins gestures <_<
this was the only gesture i was proud of...turned out nice,just line work,i didn't bother trying to construct him first.

http://www.animationforum.net/users/noob/images/27.jpg


and this was 40-50mins of me stressing out with forshortening,damn u perspective of the body!!! :gasp:

http://www.animationforum.net/users/noob/images/28.jpg

but i got great feedback today,the art lecturer said my shading is a big improvement from the woman i posted b4!

tell me whatcha think,feedback is always nice....even if it is just rebecca who cares :sad: :D

Rebeccak
12-03-2005, 04:11 PM
NOOB,

You're getting better, and your shading, as your instructor pointed out, IS improving ~ good show! :) I seriously think, however, that 2 minute sketches, for you done in Traditional media, would REALLY help with proportions (yours are pretty good) but also foreshortening, which kills any artist. ;)

Seriously, try just one or two 2-5-10 minute sequenced drawings ~ non~consecutive, mind you, each drawing should be from scratch ~ and your proportions, ability to capture gesture, and foreshortening will all improve. Particularly if you do these on a regular basis.

Good to see your work! :thumbsup:

Cheers, :)

Gesturing saves my life when I draw. I remember thoose days when some one out our class would voluntee to be drawn and we had to draw gestures and contour drawings all day long for 2 hours straight.

But yeah you gotta join the 15 min. sketch thread. It is fun.
