Day Fifty-Seven: Sketching the Figure in Action Continued

Back on track! Finally wrapped up most of my freelance obligations and I can start focusing on the Loomis book again. I did some drawing  this morning and boy am I rusty.

Day Fifty-Five: Sketching the Figure from Imagination Continued

Wow, it feels like I haven’t drawn in forever.  And I think these sketches show it! Ack, I need to allot more time to daily sketching. I’m getting rusty. I’ve been spending all my time doing freelance stuff and promoting my comics, so the Loomis sketches have been lagging. Anyways, I attempted to turn one of these sketches into Batman, but I botched it. 4_06 sketching the figure in action from imagination continues

Day Fifty-Four: Sketching the Figure in Action From Imagination

Getting back into full figure sketches! Although I have to admit that I copied the sketches from the book, rather than come up with my own positions. Wanted to make sure I’m doing these things right before I get to that point. Plus, I draw comics all day anyways, so I’m constantly having to come up with positions from my imagination already! I could use a break from it every now and again.

Day Fifty-Three: Landmarks You Should Know Rear Body

This one was a bit of a challenge, mainly due to my struggle with drawing figures straight on. On a side note, I’ve been uploading my various webcomics on recently. If you haven’t checked out my sci-fi series Praesidium, now is a good time to get in on the ground floor! It’s colored entirely in watercolor.

Day Fifty-Two: Landmarks You Should Know

Now we’re gettin’ back to the good stuff. Here, Loomis points out specific parts of the body that should be learned as landmarks. Very helpful.

Day Fifty-One: More Work with the Box

This finishes up working within the shape of the box, and it also concludes the exercises on perspective. Next, Loomis will delve into specific muscle and bone structures. 3_09 combining arcs of movement with the box continued
