Default.rol gets to sit back and relax for the next two weeks.

Awesome to see someone allready post. The reasons for the first set of exercises are explained in the book. There of course, will be no technical critiques for this set. I will say that I like how defualt.rol set up his exercises. he only had to post his portrait but he chose to do the hand as well. This is great. Thanks for being on the ball default. This is fantastic.

the tonal shaping in the hand is indeed really nice...

Shaun

p.s. I am going to keep all of the first exercises...that way at the end I can set up a montage of our progress.

p.s. p.s. - something to think about for you guys that have the book allready. for the next set of exercises, how fast should we go? One week, two weeks? What do you guys think?

According to my version of the book I picked up from Amazon the other day, there are three exercises for the first round -

#1 - Portrait
#2 - Drawing a human from memory (thats why it looks very odd!)
#3 - Hand study

Hence three drawings in total...

As for the speed which to progress at, the book is a "crash course" that is suppost to last only 5 days (if I read the intro correctly,) but I am just going at the pace of the thread so I haven't read anymore than the second chapter, (I might go further now though.) Shaun, is there any benefit to going fast do you know? (or will 1 task per week/fortnight still work out fine do you think?)

MIKE

Exercise 01

Howdy, y'all,

I'm a new CGSociety member. I'm very excited that I found this Workshop. Below are my 3 drawings for Exercise 1.

Self Portrait




Person from Memory




My (Right) Hand (Yes, I'm a southpaw.)







A thought about how fast to cover the book: I would vote for fast, just because the original seminars are pretty fast, but I understand that others have time constraints and obligations more critical than mine.

jgr77777,

Welcome to the forum! I am going to try really hard to stick to my pledge of keeping my mouth shut for a change and allowing Shaun to work his magic in this thread! But I'd just like to say hello, and thank you for being the second participant in this Workshop!

Thank you for posting your work!

Cheers!

Hey all I thought as a couple of people have posted their sketches allready I thought I'd post mine.

The large image of the head is my self portrait, the other person is my mother drawn from memory (that was really hard) I rushed it a little. and that other drawing is of my hand. The people were drawn with a 4b pencil and the hand was drawn with 4b pencil and shaded with a couple of 'warm gray' copic markers.

Hope you like
