Subject title: Fleur's sketchbook

hey fleur, lemme give you some advice wish i had when i was starting out; these rigid anatomy studies with color and stuff you're adding will help you, and it's cool if you enjoy doing them that way, shading and all; but you can learn much much faster by just doing studies and making those mistakes quicker and quicker. think of it like a game, you need 100 points to get to the next level, if you do one colored or shaded study you get 20 xp, and that takes 5-10 mins. or you could get 10 xp for doing like a gesture drawing which takes 60 seconds each. I mean, as long as you're concentrating, either way is fine really, but from my experience, learning to distill the shape in like 3 or 4 lines will help you draw much more fluently and effortlessly than spending a ton of time on each little drawing :p

and always ask yourself, how can i get the overall feel and essence of this leg or body in less than 5-10 lines? if you make that an objective you will improve super fast :)

Thanks a lot for the advice! I definitely know what you're saying buuuut the leg poses are 60 seconds and I was trying to get as much detail as possible in just to try and get a feel where all the different muscles go. Also the studies on the right (shoulder) were done along with sycras video on shoulder anatomy.

I definitely understand what you're saying though and I'll do lots of simple gestures; they're just quite boring! Hahaha suppose it's worth it in the end. And I'll admit I suppose coloring around the gesture drawings is a waste of time LOL I just wanted it to be pretty ;_;

Thanks for your input! :)

PS: I liked the video game analogy :p

hey fleur ! first i wich I would have drew so much like you in your young age ! im really jealous !

do you have the possibility to go to an figure drawing class in your environment? it would really helped you with your figure! try to take your time and observe the things you see

it also would be good if you do some perspective studies...and combine it with figure drawing...cause leg is just a cylinder what can be a nose ? square + half cylinder? do you know Réne Aigner? google him and watch how he construct heads and faicial features !!

keep it up work work work and have a lot of fun !
Support the people you love set yourself a goal and do everything it takes !

I agree! That owl is looking great! Also, anatomy drawings are a really important part of drawing, but I don't think It really matters how you do them just as long as you do them. Gotta find what ever works best for you, and then run with it.

@Roger - Thanks for the support!
@Choctoppi - Thanks! And I completely agree.. I mean at least I'm doing them right..? >_>

Also more WIP but the feathers are really getting on my nerves. This was done quickly to get a feel of what it would look like but I'll probably re-do it, really not happy with it.

you have a nice sense of design, i can tell you really enjoy the outfits you're creating; that will definitely give you an advantage in the long run :)

I think I've lost a bit of the drawing for fun concept an felt like I was putting too much thought into the things I drew (because what I post in here are the only things I draw).
Also I almost only draw digitally so I want to do some more traditional stuff; I forgot what it's like weirdly enough and it feels so much more natural. I think I'll probably practice with traditional before I go back to digital to Be honest.
Some of these copied from sycras sketches, some aren't. I was watching his video while doing these but next time I'm going to get some inspiration of some kind.
Ps: I know all of these are about as inaccurate as they get

Traditional art <3

I like how you use pens instead of pencils! Permanent marks build confidence.
