theseraphimabove,

Looks like you've got a very nice start there, and I remember doing many of these drawings as a first term Illustration student ~ back when I had to walk to school in the snow ~ one thing I would suggest is to block in the whole of the figure LOOSELY and FIRST. I know that as perfectionists, we try to get the whole thing right in one go, but one thing I discovered in reading about the Old Masters is that they traced and redid their drawings repeatedly to get them right ~ boy was I disappointed when I read that! My idea was that they were such Wunderkinds that they could just nail it on the first try, but t'was not the case ~ so there is not shame in redoing / retracing / redrawing work as you go.

Thanks for posting this, and I look forward to seeing more of your work!

~Rebeccak

Yeah I think i was reading one of your Art Reviews and realized that I sometimes focus on one side and then when I'm done with it, I scrap the whole drawing because the balance is already off to begin with and it never comes out.. One thing I was curious about, should I be employing higher contrast? I notice that my drawings are filled with a lot of midtones and nothing really catches the eye... Hard pencils will be my death ^_^ Thanks for the crit,


Seraph

Seraph,

Check out some of these Master Drawings, and notice how loose some of these "finished" drawings look:

I would try using at least a 2B pencil, and if you're brave, a 4B or 6B. I've personally never liked hard pencils for the very reason you cite, which is that you don't get much of a range.

You can always start out using a hard pencil, and then go back to reinforce with a softer pencil, like a 2B - just make sure you constantly sharpen - this is the pain with softer pencils.

It's best to keep in mind that no matter how finished you want a drawing to be, you should ALWAYS start with a looser gestural drawing first.

Good luck, and definitely post your results!

Sketchs

Hello! There are some of my sketchs since last week. Great new fourm! I only have a few hours a week to draw so I have to do everything quick! My 30 min or less sketchs below do on a Tablet PC using SketchBook Pro, and a paper texture background.

Not to mention that I absolutely love the human form in art. You pull it off near flawlessly in my opinion. I was curious, what sort of brushes did you use on your third figure? When i originally looked at each of them my first impression was "how can I recreate that look in painter?" So I'd appreciate it greatly if you might expand on the media used within your program to create the first and third pieces? Thanks so much,

seraph


thank you,i just saw someone post tutorials here,i 'd like to made some to post,coming soon.

Tutorial Info.

Just so it's clear, here is a link to and the actual information regarding the posting of TUTORIALS which I wrote today in the ANNOUNCEMENTS thread: #11

EVERYONE,

POST TUTORIALS! POST TUTORIALS!


I encourage anyone and everyone who has a TUTORIAL to share to post it ~ as it contributes greatly to our community.

Thank you for your posts

~Rebeccak

EDIT:

For some of you, the term "MODERN MASTERS" may be intimidating, and I do not want some silly term to preclude people from posting their tutorials.

If you feel more comfortable, feel free to just post your TUTORIAL on the main Artistic Anatomy and Figurative Review thread and call it TUTORIAL *what it's about* by *your name*

EVERYONE has something to offer to the community here, and I hope you will share it with us!

Thank you

So I'm digging through my archive of drawings and such and I found a few drawings from my days in school when we had a live model available to us. I haven't been doing many figure drawings lately ... maybe I need to get back to school or find some figure drawing classes locally. I really enjoyed drawing with a model in front of me.

Anyway ... here's a couple of my drawings.
