..Except for the past two days because I was reading Dostoevsky and Kierkegaard, and I had a job interview last Thursday. I’ve been too lackluster in updating this improvement blog because my drawings have been practices of poses. I’m up to 500 gestures but I still feel like an amateur when it comes to certain body positions, ex if the pose is angled below the waist. I should concentrate more on the torso, and every now and then draw the stretching muscles on the shoulders. I will leave the hands and feet as separate studies instead of spending my 45-30 sec. on detailing them in poses (unless I have extra time).
Also practicing on head likeliness. I’m sketching them according to the advice I was given in Hampton’s head video (proportions and placement).
Gestures helped me sketch pretty fast. Not as accurate but I’ll get there one day.
The finished comic is on the blog and here. I rushed it. There was no incentive to try my best. QQ I forgot how to draw legs.
And I messed up on my lizard. Guess I should scrap it. (The mouth is destroyed beyond repair.)
Gestures and heads tomorrow. For now, I sleep.
Practiced on values yesterday. And started using water color pencils for a /LAS/ challenge on /ic/ that I missed.
Edit: Also practicing on SAI. Can’t get too rusty now. My stomach hurts so I will stop here for now.
I’m still drawing head planes, so I’m practicing. I’m sketching a bit faster though. And I put the lights on the diaroma.
This is all the update for today. I’ve been reading Brothers Karamazov (Pevear translation, so good) so I was preoccupied with something other than my fundementals. I also had time to watch Week 4 of Hampton. It’s delving into torso muscles.
