|This was drawn in 2008 for my final project in my drawing class at my community college.|
|Drawn in 2004, also from a magazine ad for clothes.|
My strength: Clothes. I am really, really good at clothes. Creases, shadows, bends, you name it. Clothes I excel in. I *can* be good in hair, but its a hit-or-miss.
Weakness: FACES!!! I ALWAYS mess faces up. I avoid them entirely and when I do encounter them I spend hours of redoing them. I can never get them to look.....human. I also have a weakness with making bodies look proportional.
So how do I draw? This is a project I am working on right now, and I plan to post pictures of it as I work on it. This is what I am drawing from:
|Taken in Paris, one of my absolute favorites.|
Now I have only taken one drawing class, so I don't know how to actually really draw, this is only from copying what I can already see before me, things that aren't moving. I hate still-life/real-life drawing because I am really bad at it. So I can't tell you or teach you how to draw, or if this is even the right way to do it. I just usually start with the basic point-of-focus of the picture, which in this case is the two men. I can't put them in mid-air, so I have to draw the basic architecture for them to sit on, and this also helps set the entire drawing in proportion. The humans are the hardest to get right, and after that its just detail, detail detail...I'll probably post again when I get the next guy in to the left. What do you think of that guy? He is slouching so it is hard to get him to look right. I have such a hard time with faces/heads....and also, his shoe isn't right. Is his leg long enough? What does everyone think? ---6/29/11
Second guy is in! But I am officially ticked that the first guy (on right), his leg is terribly too short and MUST absolutely be lengthened. And his forehead is bothersome too.....Just something isn't right with it. I have to play with that later. :-\ --6/30/11
And one more for you:
|I forgot to show the progression of this being completed, so thats a boo bean :( But can anyone guess who it is?? Pixar, will you hire me?? :D |
One of my best friends just recently got engaged and today was their engagement celebration party. So in thinking....what do I bring as a gift to an engagement party? Is it time for blenders and toasters and that stuff? Nah. I didn't think so, at least. I wanted to do something unique.
New Stuff as of 4/15/12...
