I'm kind of new to CGSociety, so I'm not sure how all this works. do we have to create a concept theme out of each photo or are these for rough/sketching practicing purposes?

it's great you're doing this!!

moraisins,

Great to have you with us!

We have run 4 previous Open Figure Drawing Workshops (OFDWs), all of which can be found linked here:

Tutorials, Workshops, Anatomy Reviews & More ... [links within]

(See Post # 3)

Please feel free to check these out to see how the other OFDWs have gone...there is a lot of incredible work ~ you might want to start looking through a few of these, and go from the back to the front, as more finished work is posted towards the back.

You may draw / paint / sculpt from the photos in whatever way you wish ~ if you wish to add bkgrds to figures, etc., that is totally fine, so long as the work is done in good taste.

I encourage everyone to post WIP (Work in Progress) as it allows everyone to critique and be critiqued in a positive way, and also lets everyone share their work processes.

Great to have you aboard, and look forward to your work!

pushav,

Nice work so far! This blocked~in approach works well for you. I think you ought to try the same blocked~in approach with a grayscale painting of this in either Photoshop, or preferably, for you, Painter.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I can't do that when it comes to painting. I always use the coloring book approach.

Why not try Sheff's technique traditionally? Or, instead of painting additively, paint subtractively? In other words, create a drawing. Create a new layer above the drawing layer, fill it with 50% white. Create a new layer above that layer, fill it with 75% black. Erase out with a low opacity eraser from the darker layer to find the highlights. The key, you know, is to try stuff out and practice. Saying "I can't do that" wears out after a while.

Cheers,

I have tried all of that stuff and it never comes out looking good. So I went back to the coloringbook style. I have to say inbetween the lines lol.

Here's mine so far and I've included WIPs up to this point.

I start off with a really quick sketch, 1 min, no more. Then I refine it a bit (or a lot!) and make sure the outline is fairly accurate. My next step is to block in big colours. Then I ditch the line sketch and start in on the shading. And that's where I'm at now. I should say this is how I work in Photoshop, with layers. In Painter I just start right in with blobs of paint.



I think I'm also going to try one of these pics in a traditional medium as I barely crack open my sketchbook.

Amerasu,

Seeing the step~by~step like this is fabulous! I would encourage others who have the time or inclination to do the same.

Cheers,

Nice start! Think about the major axes first, and details second. Can't wait to see where this goes!

It would be great to have you here! Sh@ke off the rust, babe!

Cheers guys!

drawMonger,

ROFL...very funny! But if you become another pushav, I'll shoot you.

In all seriousness, looking forward to what you will be doing for this OFDW!
