Please Note:

At the end of each OFDW, I create a SPOTLIGHT thread highlighting the best work from the Workshop.

For this Workshop, I will only be plugging (including in the SPOTLIGHT thread) final images that are accompanied by WIP images - which artists can include as a set in a single post along with their final images (to avoid having multiple posts for a single image). Please also feel free to post a gif of the process for your best pieces.

This will especially be the case in instances where the work matches the reference image rather exactly.

You need not provide WIPs for images where it is obvious that no tracing has been involved, or for simple sketches. The purpose of providing WIP images for your work is to demonstrate transparency of your work process. An accompanying explanation of your work flow can also be helpful.

Great :slight_smile:

cheers
a. :slight_smile:


#5

I’ve just started doing hand studies again, so this is perfect timing. :buttrock:


#6

Frejasphere and erilaz, I’m going to hold you to your promises. :slight_smile: I’m likely going to be doing a lot of mine traditionally since that will tie in nicely with my classes. Looking forward to seeing everyone’s amazing contributions.


#7

Timing is perfect!
Count me in as well this time :slight_smile:


#8

Handy timing… (sorry, couldn’t resist). I’ll do trad studies and scan them in.

See you around. :slight_smile:

Heya Rebecca!

I’m back, and in for this one! Havn’t participated since the 50 heads and 50 torsos workshops waaaay. Moved my attendance over to CA after that as my tastes shifted to more 2D mediums. But have been subscribed to updates on this thread the whole time :stuck_out_tongue: Tis a shame I missed that bargue drawing one though - I’ve been wanting a good reason to do one of those :frowning:

I’ll definitely be back in on this one, and will try and get my flatmate doing it too!

Thanks for organising these things :slight_smile: Great motivation :slight_smile:

woot, finally! I will start working on it as soon as I wake.


#11

exactly what the doctor ordered. Working on my design thesis now, but final submission is due this Monday, so as son as hat and final exams have cleared up I’ll be sure to start drawing and giving a hand to others by means of critique.


#12

this is so exciting! I am studying anatomy and this is just perfect!!
thank you so much rebecca! we love you :smiley:


#13

wow, the workshop sounds good, i might do it…if i have time…:slight_smile:


#14

I will definitely be watching everyone’s progress - no time to participate, alas :sad: Sounds like it’s going to be a fruitful workshop - have fun all!


#15

this is an awesome contest, hands, feet, elbows, knees are probably some of the hardest and most confusing parts of the body to make.


#16

This time i will try my best to participate as i have been waiting for this workshop.


#17

Sounds really cool, never participated in a workshop so i will tro to participate this time :slight_smile: I’m not good at drawing at all at the moment, but I have been busy trying to improve my skills so hopefully I will learn a lot from it (even though my entries will probably be crappy :D, but I’ll try my best).


#18

I can’t miss this one! 25 hands, terrifying XD


#19

Sweet! I’m quite bussy this month, but i’ll try to draw something :smiley:


#20

Oooh, nice topic! I SO need to work on my hands drawing… hands are quite difficult I think! I really need this practice, so count me in! Yeah! :slight_smile:
