Figure drawing (nudity)

Recommended Posts

I like acrylics but just haven't used 'em that much.

I like the dog a lot, with it's warm and cool tones.

 

Ckit- I think the one your talking about was a brush (round 1) and ink.

depends on how long youve got. i generally start out with a 2 line flow drawing and 2 ovals, one for the ribcage one for the pelvis. if you can get those to work correctly its just connecting the major masses. i wouldnt bother trying to find contour until youve got everything generalized and flowing.

thanks for the kind words man. i never really used acryllics, i did back in high school a few times and couldnt stand how fast they dried. oils are more expensive but theyre alot more flexible and can take up to 2 days to dry, which gives you time to rework them. it helps to have a teacher to show you how to use and manipulate them. draw as much as you can from life and learn art history and youll be on your way.

hey man I appreciate the suggestions, honestly I need to draw more like you said, I have been slacking a bit... I guess I've just been trying to move on to painting from drawing and drawing, acrylics just happened to be there, probably will try oils as soon as I get some things down... again this thread is great to get motivated.... but yeah practice is everything... thanks...

 

anyone got any links on color theory?? that seems to be my biggest setback...

KT08-

Not bad, working on rotating those scans is something to think about. Your right about the difficulty with short poses, forces you to get out of that comfort zone of building slowly. I would focus more on flat vaule shapes before going into contour lines, I think it will help simplify everything and help your proportions out.

Keep posting your work.

 

BUCK FUSH-

I'd love to see a in progress type thing on here. Do dat shit!

 

cantinflas-

Thanks a lot! Lots of talent here. I'd say about the acrylic, I have used very little of it but am going to expereiement with em soon. I would suggest maybe watercolour before you use acrylic, it will build your confidence by using more flexable medium before the fast decisions you need to make when using more plastic medium.

Lets see some scans?

 

Oh, I got my first solo show on the 10th of March. It'll be figure drawings/paintings, and comic art. I'm excited but nervous, also I have over 20 more pieces to frame in six days!

SO, what the fuck do you do when you spent the last five years drawing figures? I guess have a show. I've spent the last 30 some hours working on this shit.

good luck on that sabe.

 

 

its a chimp by the way. I had been reading an article about Intelligent Design, and I got pissed off. So in one fell ironic swoop i did my own version of creation. Thats why the two blocks are there, not only for composition but to allude to the connection of god and man through a chimp. I thought it was funny. Made my day at work better.

It was awesome! I sold two pieces. Which is two more then I would expect from a coffee shop. Friends and family came which was good enough for me. I feels good to work towards something like this and have it pay off.
