Lastly, these are the results of the last 2 weeks of Bobby Chiu's portrait visualisation exercises (no reference!). Above was week 6: male portraits.

Here is the week 7 exercise: female portraits. These were interesting as we incorporated more stylized portraits into the exercise. Again, his exercises can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeLw9TDyBUdU6sSCbqaSw7n5Jzjonj6nH. My visualization skills are definitely improving!

Too Embarrassed to Post The Other Sketches

 

...Until this one.  Still have some work to do, as this feels like by far the worst drawing i've done in some time, but these are definitely helping to stretch my mind and build my visual library!  Check out Bobby's exercises here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeLw9TDyBUdU6sSCbqaSw7n5Jzjonj6nH.

This samurai-haired man is one of the better results of trying out one of Bobby chiu’s visualization exercises on his youtube channel (draw faces quickly using absolutely no reference).  These feel like by far the worst drawings i’ve done in some time, as I have grown pretty used to having some kind of reference on hand, but this are definitely helping to stretch my mind and build my visual library! At least they seem to be getting better as the week goes on.  Check out Bobby’s exercises here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeLw9TDyBUdU6sSCbqaSw7n5Jzjonj6nH.

Here is a study I did of a sci-fi helmet design.  I did this in conjunction with my own helmet design for my boy, just to get my mind going...

Just Working on Some Heads

I've noticed that I sind of struggle drawing character's heads from weird angles, so I decided to do some head studies to try to eliminate that.  This is probably something I'll try to practice more often.

Here are a couple of the facial expressions from my last post, this time I did some painted studies.  More to come!

A New Character and some Figure Drawing

It’s been awhile since my last update, and believe me I’ve been busy, but here is just a small sample of what I’ve been doing:

Some sketches of another character in my IP: a young boy (10-12 years old) who lives in the jungle of this post-apocalypse world but has been separated from his people...

Some developmental sketches of another character in my IP: a young boy (10-12 years old) who lives in the jungle of this post-apocalypse world but has been separated from his people.  He’s been fun to work on because I haven’t designed too many children before…

 

And some figure drawing class pen sketches:

Visual Library Studies: The Jungle

This past week was full of studies of the jungle and jungle scenes, which will help me on my next story painting...

This past week was full of studies of the jungle and jungle scenes, which will help me on my next story painting.  As you can probably tell, the painting above is a study of Jake facing the Thanator in Avatar…

 

Another jungle...

Another jungle…

 

And finally a quick value study of another painting.
