Arrow Now OPEN!!! Open Figure Drawing Workshop with zhuzhu and Rebecca Kimmel 004

NOW OPEN!!! OPEN FIGURE DRAWING WORKSHOP 004!!!



Welcome to the FOURTH thread of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop!!! I am truly excited about this, and am very grateful to valuable CGTalk Artistic Anatomy and Figurative Art Forum member zhuzhu, artist and professional model, who has generously volunteered to allow us to use his images for this Workshop. A big thanks to zhuzhu!

Zhuzhu is additionally running a parallel thread on the 5D Forum which he moderates in China. It can be found here.

Zhuzhu, 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.

Figures, zhuzhu

Okay! Here goes my first attempt at a figure drawing in a year or so - I study Industrial Design at the moment and so most my sketching of late has been focused on man-made products. It's interesting to see how my style has changed. And it's apparently about time I started drawing the human figure once more

Thanks RebeccaK and zhuzhu for this workshop, and to everyone else for taking part in this forum. I'm already glad I joined in. See you all!

Post Wip01

Hello
At first I would like to thank Rebbecak for new workshop and of course Zhuzhu for photos ...
So when I woke up this morning there was a new workshop so I started with drawing immediately. Well in previous workshops others were posting wips so I though I will post some too. At least you can see as I work. You may notice there is no logic in my shading I just jump from one place to another but in case you would want to know something fell free to ask.
Ok so here it is. I may post another wips later ... it should be finished today
Btw if you can see some flaws let me know I may correct it if its not too late.

fooxoo,

ROFL, yep, we should all have zhuzhu's genes!

ohjay,

Welcome to the forum! Did you post an image? Nothing appears, at least for me. If you could repost, that would be great!

Slux,


You're totally welcome, and it's great to have you here! I would be careful not to render too quickly ~ though your job so far is excellent, I think the right shoulder is starting to look a bit off, so try to get a very loose gestural drawing in first before you completely render. You may even want to try a few loose practice drawings on a separate sheet of paper, just to loosen up your hand. That left shoulder is looking fantastic! Be careful on the lips, as you do not want them to look 'outlined'. Keep going, you are doing a great job! And the purpose here is definitely to show WIPs and to get feedback.

zhuzhu,

Great to see your self~portrait! Great job, looking forward to seeing more!

Cheers!

~Rebeccak

Glad you think so, thanks! I checked out your WIP, looks really cool! Have you seen this thread:

3D DIGITAL ARTISTS

There's a lot of great work there already...why not post yours up when you're through with your model?

Kyle,

Good to see you here! You should definitely participate.

Cheers!

Post wip02

Ok here is my second wip ... hmm I'am really slow ... I start to doubt it will be finished today.

To Rebbecak: Thanks for crits .... I know I should at first render all areas just loosly but I always stick to some areas and render them dunno why ... but anyway this is not final redering its just undercoat ... there will be a lot of changes in values and so ...
So here it is .. second wip

Slux,

No problem! Rendering tightly is not a bad thing, but it is good to get in the habit of loosening up just slightly to get a rhythmic flow to a figure which is necessary to give it a sense of life.

This is looking really great so far ~ I would, however, reconsider the drawing of the right arm, as currently the bulge representing the upper arm is too generic and does not accurately describe his real upper arm ~ I would break this one rounded curve into at least 4~5 smaller, and straighter curves which delineate the muscles. The left arm is looking really good, and I think is better descriptively than the right.

Be careful not to make the face look too flat by shading it all at once and all over. Zhuzhu has a rather chiseled face which you will want to describe.

The key too to getting the face to read properly is to make sure that the fundamental axes are well in place ~ you can nail the details, but if the axes are off, then the face will not 'read' as you would expect.

Great work, keep going!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Kyle,

I just reread your post and realized that you meant you would provide reference photos of yourself for the OFDWs ~ that's great! Please do send them ~ 300dpi please, so that people may print them if they so choose ~ and preferably full figure, well~lit, and of course these can be partially clothed (I know you, so it would just be way too wierd otherwise!) ~ and BTW, enialadam put me on to this great model who has a lot of great reference photos which he has agreed to allow us to use for the OFDW 005 ~ but I am more than happy to have multiple models, so please definitely send me photos. Also, I think it might be cool if we drew each others' heads, hands, feet, etc., as this would be great practice.

Cheers!

~Rebeccak

zhuzhu,

Wow, really great sense of balance and lineweight! Very nice! Maybe something is funny with the lower left leg?

Cheers,
