These are pretty nice, NOOB ~ particularly the first one. I think what you really need to work on here are the hands ~ currently, in several of the pictures, she looks to be wearing oven mitts, heehee! I do this too, but it's worthwhile to do some dedicated hand studies.

I think you should look at silver point drawings by Fra Filipino Lippi. Amazing stuff. I'll try to post links, but feel free to run a search yourself. I have a book of his silver point drawings, and they're just amazing!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

NOOB,

That first piece in particular is pretty nice! Do you feel that you do better on the shorter, or the longer poses? You seem to do quite well when you're given the time to focus on details.

I would recommend checking out the work of Andrew Wyeth ~ his watercolors and pencil drawings. I think he's still alive ~ not positive, though. Living his crazy life, somewhere in Pennsylvania, I believe.

Keep posting.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

NOOB,

If you like Gesture Drawings / Sketches, then you really ought to join in on the 15 Minute Sketchathon, which is a Sticky at the top of the Forum. Lots of AWESOME work going on there, and a great chance to do either digital or traditional Gesture Drawings!

What I have been recommending to folks is that they take the same pose, and do 3 different drawings from the same pose, in 2, 5, and 15 minute increments. If you do a lot of these on a regular basis, your work is guaranteed to improve!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

i'll try MsK,but time kills me.

...............

Our main objective was to make a *drawing* today and not sketch,even with the 5mins gestures <_<
this was the only gesture i was proud of...turned out nice,just line work,i didn't bother trying to construct him first.




and this was 40-50mins of me stressing out with forshortening,damn u perspective of the body!!! :gasp:



but i got great feedback today,the art lecturer said my shading is a big improvement from the woman i posted b4!

tell me whatcha think,feedback is always nice....even if it is just rebecca who cares

NOOB,

You're getting better, and your shading, as your instructor pointed out, IS improving ~ good show! I seriously think, however, that 2 minute sketches, for you done in Traditional media, would REALLY help with proportions (yours are pretty good) but also foreshortening, which kills any artist.

Seriously, try just one or two 2-5-10 minute sequenced drawings ~ non~consecutive, mind you, each drawing should be from scratch ~ and your proportions, ability to capture gesture, and foreshortening will all improve. Particularly if you do these on a regular basis.

Good to see your work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Gesturing saves my life when I draw. I remember thoose days when some one out our class would voluntee to be drawn and we had to draw gestures and contour drawings all day long for 2 hours straight.

But yeah you gotta join the 15 min. sketch thread. It is fun.
