Terminators and shadows

Tonal stuff

The last two have the strong terminators. Need to work out how to invent these when they are not present in life sessions.

Hatches and scratches

More scribbles, need to work out what I'm trying to achieve. For these I started with a more direct approach to the shapes.

Few weeks scribbles

Not posted for a while due to holidays and things. Not sure where these scribbles are going.

Bit of rust

After 3 weeks with very little drawing took a while to get back into things.
These weren't too bad though.

Hair today

Tonal studies (of sorts). Emphasis on hair textures.

Not much time to draw, getting ready for my Brother's visit. However, three of the four drawings tonight seemed to work. Maybe I'm getting less particular.

Having problems making the drawings not look like cartoon figures. I think it is the hard outlines.

The eyes have it

Did some studies based on Vanderpoel. Not sure what I was doing here: the text doesn't match the images and the images are so small. Having said that it does seem to help you think about the shapes which is what it is all about.

A couple of tonal drawings.

Squiggles and a portrait.

Not much time for drawing this week, more painting and beer drinking.

05.07.2009 - Basics

This week although I've been concentrating on painting the sketches seem more real or physically represent a 3d model.

1st July: not much

Been concentrating on painting (acrylic) and colour. First a sketch prior to a painting (getting composition and basic tones).

Then after the painting there were problems around the nose. Not sure that this helps in that the tones are very bumpy (too much light in the shadow)

Finally the best of the figure sketches I've done from references this week.
