Although the board is obviously small, I think it's imperative that there's some redundancy in the moderator department. So if you feel like overseeing things from time to time, pop your account name and tell me more on how you'd handle it.

Is there anyone here? What are some books that can complement Keys to Drawing, besides Drawing on the right side of the Brain? t. absolute newfag

>>19 >>20 You drew the closer eye with the skin sitting properly over spherical shape of the eye but then the other is squarish? If you look at the reference, the eyelids get closer together towards the nose. It's also slightly higher than the closer one. Good practice though.

This time is exercise 2-C, involving Free Hand Drawing. The main trick on this is to not focus much on the quality of what you're doing but in bringing it to paper as fast as possible. The types of exercises in this one were three. 1st: Sketch the image in one minute (Gesture Drawing) 2nd: Sketch the image in two minutes without lifting the pen from the paper (Connected-Line Drawing) 3rd: Sketch an image for 5 minutes without ever looking what you're drawing. (Five-Minute Burn) Since these exercises were very short and the results seem lackluster, I did more than what the book asks for, instead of 6 gesture drawings I did 12, 8 connected-line drawings instead of 3, and up to six five-minute burns instead of 1. The first two ended up giving out something I could accept, the last exercise is the one that I can't seem to manage to do. Without orientation everything ends up in a position where it shouldn't be, and most of the drawing feels disconnected. I attempted to start from the right to the left instead of the left to the right, and while it did bring some very minor improvements, everything still is disconnected.

>>22 Just to give an example I'll post my desk and a 5min sketch for comparison. Everything is out of place
>>22 >>23 It’s true that gesture drawings are useful for putting an idea or sketch onto paper quickly. Croquis drawing is an example of that with live models. But I think the point of the exercises here is to feel/notice your reaction to the shapes you see and how that guides your hand movements. He says several times that you aren’t to care how it turns out. >without ever looking what you're drawing He does say to continuously draw and not to worry about accuracy or composition but I don’t think you have to "draw blind" by not ever looking at the drawing if that’s what you are doing.

I think I did go much to the foot of the letter. It says draw what's in front of you without stopping, not without looking after all. Boy I'm dumb
