Also! I made a mistake in This post That tracing ain't okay, and honestly I was just a dumb 13 year old, but I felt compelled to mention that the first one I used an image from google to draw the anatomy, but all the coloring shading etc is mine.
We've decided to keep you in your current class!
I can definitely see that you're trying new things and especially trying to experiment with values so that's awesome
However there were some aspects that we felt needed to be addressed before you could rank up-
Some major things to point out were:
- your drawings are quite undefined, so your values kinda just ended up mixing into each other. It made it a little bit difficult to tell what was happening, and it made your body structure end up on the wonky side
I'd suggest that you should maybe do a little underdrawing or sketch, and then paint over it, as it'll maintain your structure and details
Not only that, but draw stick figures! Stick figures take little effort,but are effective in pinning anatomical mistakes/weird poses before you get into detail, they're huge life savers
- aside from your studies, we noticed some pillow shading going on, so it made it hard for us to determine the light source
For this, I'd say to just mark a spot on your canvas to make it a light source, and just go from there. It'll help with determining the direction of the light being shone, and while you're at it you can block in your light and dark values. Although I guess you'd need to have some knowledge of lighting to do this effectively, so do some more studies man C: theyre fun
- lastly, try not to reference other peeps artworks! It's okay if you understand whats going on in the piece, but normally people would misinterpret it and draw incorrectly , so it's just better to draw using real people as references in general.
I'd suggest senshistock for some real people poses, she's the only one I know of at the moment, but she's still pretty good
Anyways, here are some drawovers from cy She fixed up some values, and drew over your falling pose to help with your structure (plus you should check how she drew the body, you can see the stick figure in there)
(Also, come check out our discord! We're pretty active sometimes, so if you need some quick feedback and tips, its in there woo)
Please set your username to your site one, so an arbiter can assign your website rank to you. Otherwise, inactives/random people will be kicked. If you have a preferred name, put that in front, then in brackets put your site name afterward.
This chat is more convenient in the matter that you can directly paste screenshots (if you have Windows, use the Snipping Tool program) into chat and it loads :P It's also quicker to get feedback from other artists on the site. Discord's available as a web browser, separate program, and a phone app. So use whichever one's more convenient to ya~
Ay, we recently announced Artist Of The Month on the news page, which can be found by clicking the "News" button at the top of website. Please don't hesitate to PM me if you have any feedback/suggestions on the idea, as we'd love to hear them .
Art pouring out of yer brain? Too many threads to handle? We suggest you make ONE thread and post all of your art as new posts to keep track of them all and make them easy to find ^^ Then you could also look back on old feedback
