Rebecca Kimmel's Anatomy Review 001: GESTURE


#401

Well, sure…I didn’t really believe it was moot, except for maybe the pose aspect.


#402

Rebecca, Thanks for the review on my drawing! Yes, I draw as if I where rending an image in maya! I will go for rendering the whole. When i do drawings for now on! I used 2b and 4b pencil for this drawing no charcoal…

I was allso woundering, when you get the badic body down and how to set it up ETC, if it just comes natural to beable to set up a human in any setting or enviroment or pose?

I have done over 6 pages of gestures over past couple days just sitting down watching tv or my buddys passed out:P Ill post them up one day or later when i go get them…

Thanks for all your help Rebecca! and the support hear it’s great help to every one!

Guys,

Thank you for all of your posts! I will not be posting any more reviews for THIS lesson ~ however, tomorrow there will be a NEW LESSON for which I hope to see your posts!
Thanks for your participation so far, and I am excited to see your new posts! :bounce:
Note: If I didn’t get to your post, don’t take it personally ~ I had a rather random system (eg, disorganized system) for picking drawings to review. Initially I was going to review only 4, but I was touched by the fact that so many people participated, and I didn’t want to let you guys down…as the lessons get more complex, I probably won’t be able to review as many, but my hope is that you will continue to participate, comment on others’ work, and post your own. Thanks for all your hard work! :applause:

~Rebeccak

#406

Thanks Rebecca for all the time you put into this lesson! :slight_smile:


#407

Heh… this forum (sorry thread) developed really fast. Internet seems to be a god thing:) at last.

RebeccaK: As NOOB! said you are a crazy woman:) Are you doing anything different than sitting in front of your computer (and eating, drawing, sleaping, and so on)?
wow! I bow to you for what you are doing fo all of us.
What was it you said you have some design stuff? Where can I find it?:drool: I love graphic design!

I would also like to thank to [color=DarkOrange]FromanylanD and Somhairle[/color] for teaching. And of course to all that posted their drawings, because it is really inspiring.

Thre are just several little thingies I would like to ask.

To one thread (one lesson) - should we post one or more sketches (or all sketches)?

Than - should we post daily?

Seems that tomorrow will start next lesson - does it mean that we should be doing both daily gestural sketches and those new thingies?

Someone I guess it was default .rol was asking about some ehm… books or anatomic matherials sooo… I’ve allread post this link on post tutorials only but I would like to do it here again: http://www.gfxartist.com/features/tutorialsat bottom thre are links to theese books:
Andrew Loomis: Creative Illustration [b]
Andrew Loomis: Figure Drawing For All Its Worth

[/b] Andrew Loomis: Fun with the Pencil


#408

Your artwork is incredible.


#409

Mirwen,

Those pdfs aren’t available at that link. You can find his books online at saveloomis.org but they are not in pdf format.


#410

@Mirwen:
Great links you posted! the loomis books are really good.

@sphere (and everyone else):
a great program for downloading images on a site like that (Loomis images, etc) is “teleport pro”, its a small little program but you can set it to download just the images at a certain location without having the need to click every single link.

  • Somhairle

#411

Somhairle, thanks but I’ve already got the pdfs myself. I’d be happy to host them for download for others if that’s allowed.


#412

Everyone,

Thank you for your awesome efforts for the first week of the Anatomy Review thread! I GREATLY appreciate everyone’s input and participation. Thanks for making this such an enjoyable experience - it’s great to see everyone’s interest and enthusiasm over this topic!

Having said that, I would like to spotlight several exceptional Gesture Drawings which were posted this week. This is not a contest, and I only want to post these to highlight some really exceptional work ~ this is not meant to discourage, but rather to encourage others to do even better drawings :thumbsup:

Here they are::wise:

Thanks for the great work and the inspiration, guys!

And I just want to point out to everyone that the NEW THREAD: REBECCA KIMMEL’S Anatomy Review 002: OPPOSING CURVES is now open for business.

Hope to see you posting there, and thanks again for all the great work! :applause:

~Rebeccak

Looking back at the above drawings I have to say I am really impressed with what was posted. Good job to everybody, and kudos to the above mentioned members. Some of those gestures floored me.
