    I’m still plugging away over on Instagram @1fishonabike – although some are admittedly done in rather a rush in batches since I’ve been busy riding bikes (yay!).

    Anyway, Drac has told me how to do this image thingy, here goes…

    …ooh, it works. Go me! This is β€˜teeming’ btw.

    Cheers folks. Maybe one day I’ll get the hang of it.

    just keep going, as with everything, repetition, and just doing something hundreds of times will result in improvement.

    Again using the queue, here’s my take on “gigantic”

    It’s a bit wonky, but happy enough. I think there’s some progress.

    liking your trees btw!

    Near side of face is excellent, far side looks off. Thanks, glad you realised they’re trees πŸ˜†

    aye the eyes don’t match particularly well. πŸ™

    canny decide if i’m looking up at the canopy or down at the forest floor though on your trees, there’s that weird duality thing again, a good thing! πŸ™‚

    Oh yeah, it was meant to be looking up, but now you’ve said that I can see it either way! Cool πŸ™‚

    Copied from a tattoo I saw ages ago.

    Sketch

    Shaded

    Turns out shading by stippling and scribbling is really hard using a brush.

    that’s a great concept you’ve got going on there, worth developing that in to something you can hang on your wall! πŸ™‚

    If only it was my concept. It’s copied from a tattoo a mate had done years ago and I have no idea where she had it copied it from.

    It is going up on the wall in the office at work along with the other I have done in an attempt to brighten the place up.

    Love the bird/forest/birds Jon, excellent.

    Showed my wife your Audrey Sesomah, she immediately commented that it’s the other way around so the far side of her face looks like audrey, near side less so, and she commented that the near jaw line was “too mannish”. Just thought I’d pass on the comments, intended to be constructive.

    Criticism welcome, I’m not a precious type! Tbh I’m probably far more self critical! Fundamentally I seem to have a distortion issue that I need to fix, it’s clearly evident when I draw anything, even that skull above is far too long in the nose(plenty other things wrong mind).

    I think it’s just a case of doing things too fast (which is kinda the point at the moment, output stuff regardless). But I probably need to take a step back at the sketch stage and consider things alot more!

    Tbh I’m actually surprised it even remotely looked like her as well, at the sketch stage I mind thinking I can’t see her in this at all! πŸ˜† I guess that should have told it’s own story. Reckon I’d probably need to do 5 or 6 versions to get somewhere I’m happy with, all the stuff i’m doing is really just initial studies tbh.

    As for the portraits, that’s attempt no4 out of what should be a couple of hundred before getting any good! (I think there’s more benefit in doing different faces than repeating the same at the moment).

    I’m really enjoying it though, I had completely forgotten how much I loved drawing. Big thank you to the OP for starting the thread there!

    Cheers for the comments, appreciated πŸ™‚

    I did a pouch style photoshop overlay. My god! πŸ˜† Seems I’ve got photoshop fisheye and twirl filters hardwired into my brain.

    Lets just say these portraits are more inspired by rather than intended as direct representations! πŸ˜†

    “run”

    Don’t worry about shading (or any type of rendering or colouring) until or unless the drawing is as good as you can get it. You can’t hide or correct bad anatomy with shading, you’ll only confuse.

    This is not my image but you’ll see it’s basically little more than lines. The anatomy is dynamic and pretty spot on. Beyond this the artist could begin to refine the lines and/or add shading. Sketching is a skill in itself. Shading is another, painting is another beyond that. They all intermingle but you’ll learn more doing thirty 1 minute line drawings than doing one drawing and spending 30 minutes colouring it in.

    Also, when drawing people it helps if you think of the main joints (knees, elbows, shoulders, hips) as hinges or pivots upon which the weight of the body is hanging or pushing, depending on the pose.

    I’m actually just watching this just now, it’s pretty good, bodies are on my to list.

    Thanks Jimjam, my main issue was the raised leg, not being high enough. I’m still struggling to stay loose, there’s no way I could sketch that in a minute! might watch that sesomah.

    That guy is a brilliant illustrator and his instruction is on point but I find it frustrating to watch tbh because even when he’s demonstrating how to be “loose” he’s still relatively tight in my opinion.

    I’ve worked with some incredible illustrators in the past and of course everyone has their own style but probably my biggest drawing influence (in terms of technical instruction) was someone who was incredibly loose and fluid. He would do at least one drawing every day but he was just super fluid, expressive and dynamic.

    Aye, know what you mean, I guess looseness is relative to your style.

    Yeah. He has a very tight (very very tight) and precise style and I think that for beginners, learners, intermediate level people his instruction is too technical.

    I just googled the chap I used to work with and found that he has a youtube channel. Definitely check these out

    When I was 21 or so I was lucky enough to work with Graham for a year in his home studio assisting him with a 3d animation he was producing. I learned a huge amount from him, sadly most of which I’ve forgotten. He used to have an incredibly precise and graphic style (think Glen Fabry for reference) but when he got a job at Disney he learned the limitations of his style, hiding behind rendering, and so he taught himself to draw again from scratch with his left hand. A legitimate genius and an incredibly nice guy too.

    cool. will check those out, good stuff! πŸ™‚

    I taught myself to use a mouse with my left hand years ago when I broke my color bone, learning to draw is just amazing!

    Yes it’s completely ridiculous. Apparently the original old masters at Disney (the surviving ones at least) pointed out the flaws in his approach and told him if he wanted to get good he had to forget all of his bad habbits. Learning to draw with his left was part of the solution to this. It took him years, obviously.

    No.16, more wonkyness from me! Good news though, I’ve passed the half way mark, I’m definitely commited now to the 31!

    Sorry for the slight derailment…

    A legitimate genius and an incredibly nice guy too.

    A surprisingly good 5-a-side goalie too πŸ˜€ Spent two years with Graham up in Derry hey! We did the same graphic + product design course. Portraits can be added to the list of things he’s annoyingly good at. Lovely chap as you say.

    Now, do more arts…
