I found that I have been doing way more studying than work from imagination and it starts to bother me. Not only, but also, because I found this in a sketchbook post over at permanoobs.com.
So here more drills. Constructing boxes and turning them in space. The first is an exercise on mirroring a spline across a plane. I found this exercise on this awesome blog.
I watched a great tutorial this week by Oxan studio. I have to say, that I love his tutorials. He has a really big knowledge about painting and it totally shows in his work. Also his way of working resonates with me a lot. I really recommend his tutorials for learning more about painting, composition, art-philosophy. He doesn't talk a lot about drawing though, so maybe check out drawabox or this here, for learning more about it.
This was done for the children's - game I am working on with my dad and my brother. The game will be used for a clinical study in 2 weeks from now, which is super exciting. The image was heavily inspired by the great, great Sam Nielson.
His points were:
- get looser to have it be not so artificial
- some cast-shadows could go darker
- loose some edges to seperate objects better
- some drawing errors, especially at the cup
That's it for now.
