More studies, more technical, less creative. ;]
However, after I learned basics (spheres, boxes and cylinders) by heart, I will do creative stuff with figures, portraits, landscapes. I promise. Now, I don't have much technical knowledge. Until August, I will be doing those studies, and in August, I will incorporate more finished and my own drawings/paintings.
My goal is to get more practice each day and become better and better at drawing.
Book by Michael Mattesi (Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators), is one of the most important books about drawing fluid, dynamic figure. It's also not about copying surface what you see in front of the model, but feeling the action of figure. Off course, those poses are exaggeration of real life, but it is best why to learn about human figure.
So, I have made several drawings from that book. It's just a drawings, I hadn't read this book yet. Then I will read it, I think so, it will gain a lot of knowledge to me. I will redraw those drawings several times, until I fully understand pose and then I would know how to draw it from imagination.
Two figure studies from Glen Vilppu, one of the master in animation and superb teacher. I have his DVD's and I am studying it with pleasure. His approach is very important, because his main concern is on basic forms and building everything on layers. You should check his out, if you don't know him.
Second caricature. This time Brad Pitt. I hope so, you recognize him ;]
I am still struggling with showing form, I need to do it more 3D, now it's bit flat. However, matching values makes more realistic.
I have made my first caricature with digital tools, Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch tablet.
It was very interesting to experiment with different medium. My approach was inspired by top caricature artist Jason Seiler. His DVD about making caricatures inspired my to work much more in this genre. I hope so, that if I practice a lot, I will improve really fast.
If you guys interested in WIP's (work in progress), have a look.
