Though it may appear otherwise, I have not given up on the sketch a day. Recently I have been drawing in a sketch book in various places, like waiting rooms and such like. However I have been working digitally on something exciting….
An as yet unnamed female character just for practise, to try and see the differences between female and male body structure.
time taken: 20 mins
I used a revised scaling and positioning method where his chest and hips are separated. His chest is now a little too wide…
Took a little bit longer this time, to get it looking good. Still having problems with the size of his head on occasion… Perhaps my scaling method needs some adjustment…
time taken: 20mins
Eeech…I apologise for the awful drawing…proportion is all wrong and his punch is coming from the sky…
I am getting the hang of the planning process however and can do it at a decent speed. Now I just need to focus more on proportion.
time taken: 10mins
edit: better…but still requiring improvements…
The next step…re-drew the walking pose to practise it a bit more. Am much happier with the walk, but less happy with his face, it’s too big and doesn’t look enough like this as yet unnamed character.
time taken: 20mins
Same character as before but peacful now. First time I have drawn this pose and I can alrady see some improvements that are required.
I also chose to extend the time limit so as to be able to add shade to give a bit more clarity to the position of his limbs.
Time taken: 20mins
Another dynamic pose. Gotta work on those facial expressions though, can’t have him looking like he is squeezing out a painful turd all the time.
time taken: 15mins
My plan for the forseeable future is to draw a sketch every day in order to improve my technique and to hone my style.
The rules are that the sketch should take no longer than ten minutes unless I havent got at least the kine work done. This one took around twelve minutes.
Todays sketch is the alter ego of my character Heroman in some kind of fighting pose.
