PS. I totally use my handwriting as the font to type in the notes there!! *squee*!
Did a little study and then read some more Loomis. Having a hard time matching the grid to the drawing, and vice verse... lol. It looks weird. I swear, when I don't use a grid, they look FINE. haha.
Finished up my Draw 100 Project pt. 1. 100 (104 actually) female 1 minute gestures. Trying to decide if I should move on to male or, if I should go longer on the gesture time. I felt like I was starting to get a better hang of my gestures with this last set, trying ot pick the best way for me to quickly get it down. With scribbles, and then darkening the outsides. I felt like I got more down that way. Not sure why the other way wasn't really producing the whole figure. Maybe it's just a tablet thing. Or something.
My studies from Andrew Loomis Figure Drawing for all it's Worth. A little hard to grasp for me. But, I think it's helping.
Today I am sitting here in front of my computer, trying to decide for my Draw 100 Project 0.2 (lol) if I should lengthen my gesture time for females, or, if I should go on to do 1 min male gestures. I guess we'll see!!
So obviously I went on and decided to do male 1 minute gestures as my next step for my Draw 100 Project.
I am really enjoying this Drawing 100 Project at this point. The one minute gestures go by so fast. And I learned so much.
Finished up my male 1 minute gestures for my Draw 100 Project. I feel really good about it. I think my next step is going to be 5 minute gestures male and female. 100 each. And then I think I will try to draw some by memory. Some people suggested it over on ConceptArt. I think it sounds like a good exercise.
PG 39 and 40 from my Loomis: Figure Drawing for all it's Worth book. Wasn't going very well for me last night. So I plan on going over the Details of the Mannkin Frame again today... They just weren't turning out like they are supposed to. I felt like I wasn't able to draw what I was seeing. And that just feels wrong. So I gave it up last night.
Started doing my 5 minute gesture studies. I feel the ease coming with the constant practice. I think drawing every day is doing me well!!
