Arrow NOW OPEN!!! Open Figure Drawing Workshop with Hong Ly and Rebecca Kimmel 001

NOW OPEN!!!



Welcome to the Inaugural thread of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop!!! I am truly excited about this, and am very grateful to good friend and old Art Center chum Hong Ly, with whom I spent many hours in the Open Figure Drawing Workshops from 6:45 - 9:00 pm back in our art school days.



I had the idea for this thread, but was unsure how to procure decent photographs ~ but, having reconnected with Hong in LA during SIGGRAPH after many years, I discovered that he was an accomplished photographer who already had taken model reference photos for use on his website, dedicated to Character Art and Design, at which Hong is an accomplished professional. It is lucky for us here at CGTalk that Hong has agreed to be a part of this community and to allow us to use his photographs as model reference. Thank you very much, Hong!


>>RULES FOR THE THREADS<<

1. Photographs are the property of Hong Ly and are copyrighted as such.

2. Photographs are NOT to be used for ANY other purpose apart from Figurative Drawing Reference for this thread on CGTalk.

3. The drawings created from the photo reference provided here MUST be TASTEFUL, SINCERE, RESPECTFUL, and for the purpose of serious study of the human figure. Those who post silly, disrespectful, or tasteless work will have their posts deleted immediately
and will no longer be allowed to post on this thread. Hong Ly, Rebecca Kimmel, and Roberto Ortiz reserve the right to determine which drawings are considered to be in poor taste and / or disrespectful to the model/s, who have generously agreed to allow their images to be used on the condition that they be used for the tasteful and serious study of Figurative Art only.

4. There is NO TIME LIMIT for posting on this thread.

5. New threads containing new photographs will be posted on a bi-weekly basis, depending on the number of photographs available.

6. There is NO LIMIT to the NUMBER of posts an artist may make. However, we ask that you post only your BEST WORK, even if it is considered unfinished.

7. Artists who post comments and critiques of other artists' work on this thread must be RESPECTFUL, POLITE, and offer CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. Flaming will be NOT be tolerated, and constitutes dismissal from this and other threads.

8. Hong Ly has generously offered his time to critique work on occasion; however, with a full-time job and a demanding schedule, he will not be able to answer everyone's requests for assistance. He has agreed, however, to stop by the threads when he has time to offer comments and critique. Hong is a great guy and incredibly generous ~ however, please respect his time. I will also be offering the occasional comments / critique ~ however, the main focus of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop threads should be on Group Critique and interaction.

9. ANY MEDIUM or STYLE may be used: Traditional or Digital Drawing or Painting, Gestural, Sketch, Finished Render, etc.

10.
EDIT: 3D Artists who wish to use the reference for 3D models are free to do so. I just ask that you post your work here as well as in any 3D forum in which you post your work.

11. Please limit the SIZE of your POSTS to 600 pixels WIDTH x Appropriate pixel LENGTH. No huge posts, please!

12. Have fun, enjoy, and create great art!

ScottJohnson,

Oh, no apologies necessary!! I'm thrilled that you are the first to post. I just think it's generally more useful when someone tells me to go a bit further than to tell me my work is beautiful and finished. ~ I hope you didn't take this the wrong way! Your work is really cool, but I just like folks to post updates of their work as they go along. You'll see this all over the forum ~ as folks work more on their pieces, they post updates ~ it helps everyone else to learn. That's all I meant.

EDIT:

As an example, check out Slux's continuous posts on the Lesson 003 thread here. Everyone who has posted so far is listed in Post #2, under Individual Posts. Slux had a great piece to begin with, but just kept refining and refining until his piece was darn near perfect. I'm not suggesting everyone post this many, I'm just pointing Slux out as an example of someone who refined his work over time, which was really cool to see.

Well, admittedly so far mine sucks, but hopefully with time and shame will come improvement. Here goes.

So far she's got a seal flipper for a left arm, but with the addition of shoulders, she should be ship-shape.

Shame me, people. Do your worst!

EDIT: Ok, I couldn't bear the suckiness of my piece, so au revoir! It will be back up when my ego has recovered.

Stahlberg brought up a great point, which is that 3D artists ought to be able to post as well. BY ALL MEANS, if you are a 3D artist and wish to create models based off of the photo reference here, DO SO!

Thanks to Steven for pointing that out.

Okay, in that case, here's my first test, obviously unfinished, if I get time I'll try to work some more on this



edit:
Maya, about 1 hour, Photoshop (smudging hairshadow), about 1 minute

Just on my way to work, but really want to make an effort with this...my life and figure drawing is somewhat lacking due to the fact I've never taken classes... Here is a quick study 15 mins...


I know I have proportion probs...I My mind tends to draw what it thinks it see's and actually not what it see's..hopefully I will improve ..all C&C welcome, rip me appart.

Gotta go..gonna be late
