Sketchbook Thread of Fooxoo aka Edite Kirse

Hi, I think it is time to start my own. I ll try to post and listen to advice and improve :P

I drew this today, with graphite pencils on A3. Refernece was me in a mirror. About 2 hours work. A quick exercise. Actually it is my first one using live reference :P Sorry the nipple is screwed, my camera s not able to take a normal shot of a drawing (oh how I wish I had A3 scanner).

Rebecca, shread it to parts
Cheers

fooxoo,

ROFL, you will be getting some comments on your drawing shortly, I predict. Let's keep it professional, people.

I'm happy to see you create your own work thread.

I actually think there is quite a nice sensitivity in this drawing. The main thing I think it needs is more structure in the lower torso area ~ currently, the upper and lower torso are a bit undifferentiated.

Here are some random Reference images of torsos:

I recommend doing as many Master Copies as you can, as it will build an archetype in your mind of what to look for when you go to work from life. I would do a Master Copy, then a life study, and keep going back and forth, to see what doing Copies contributes to your Life Drawings.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thanks Rebecca My back is killing me now, i cant sit like that for long.

You are right about the lower part of the body, but well, I dont really have a well defined belly. I need some workout, it looks pretty smooth, no muscles visible.

I have shceduled a really hardass exercising in anatomy - copying masters' work and so on. I just hope I get all the time I need.

Great thanks for feedback

Thumbs up

fooxoo:

wow~~~! self-portrait? it makes me remember Zhang Yu Liang , a chinese female artist who drawing herself in nude from mirror.

it was nice try first, i think people in here will treat this in professional way just as Rebeccak said.

about the figure drawing , you should catch the whole pose first, then the big curves. in the value way, i think it was too much mid- tint, leave someplace blank, make the shadows simple. it will look better.

anyway,keep it up~~~

nice stuff fooxoo~its great u have an anatomy thread of urself,hmm,i gotta do that one day though~
i think its a very good initiative to do a portrait like this especialy the nude one,rarely do i see someone who draw him/herslef nude using only mirrors~great determination and spirit my friend.as for the latest sketch,everyone has their own technique of drawing a face,most of the time for me,i'd practice drawing a circle and repeatedly drawing a petals coming from the middle of the circle for a minute as a warm up~when i start drawing a face,i'd draw a circle and a cross in the middle as to define the placement and a better proportion of the eyes and the nose,it'll be alil tricky when it comes to a more dynamic perspective and those lines will go along with it.,keep it coming,without reference,u did well

fooxoo,

I think you would really enjoy Burne Hogarth's book, "Drawing the Human Head".

It's an excellent resource, and breaks things down into very geometric forms which simplify the major forms of the head.

Check it out.

Good to see more of your work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

U sing yourself as a model is one of the best things to do at times. I dod it all of the time when I preactice facial expressions. Keep up the good work. Your skills will continue to grow.

Hey there all.

Sorry no drawings this time, have been a little bit ill, with flu and back problems (had four vertebrae popped into place).

Well, but I do have something for this time. A bit of a treasure in my hands. It s a book! I think Rebbeca might know it. This is a first edition book, published in 1924 (81 years old!!!).

Here it is Bridgman's Life Drawing It s very very very cool!

fooxoo,

Wow!! I am green with envy! An original Bridgman book...now that is a treasure!!! I have paperback copies of his reprinted works, but have never seen the original ~ thanks for posting that!

He's a great source for learning how to break down shapes simply. Alrighty, I look forward to some Bridgman exercises, then!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

New project. I m going to try and do this in acrylics on canvas. If anyone can give me advice on acrylics, I ll apreciate it greatly.

This is the sketch (cleaned it out). I am still going to work on the lower legs and their possitioning. I wonder how I ll transfer this to a bigger canvas O_O
