Groups

:iconconstructive-anatomy: :iconmaraudershieldsfans:
  • Reading: Les Misérables
  • Watching: Humans
Below is its final form. Will be making Plan 02 in the next day or so. :w00t:

  1. Figure Drawing
    • Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Michael Hampton
    • CGMA Analytic Figure Drawing I
    • Try extended tripod grip: fav.me/d4xjnzb -> great for precision hatching
    • Drawing Magazine: Human Proportions => studies
    • Check out Reilly Method vids: www.youtube.com/view_play_list…
    • Gestures x 30
    • Full figure x 3
  2. Values
  3. Perspective
    • Gnomon Basic Perspective Form Drawing
    • CtrlPaint Perspective Sketching 1 & 2
  4. Colour
    • Gnomon: Colour Theory (The Mechanics of Color)
    • Gnomon: Practical Light and Colour
      • studies: refraction, fuzzy surface, subsurface scattering, ambient occlusion
    • Dimensions of Colour: www.huevaluechroma.com/011.php  –> excellent for fundamental understanding of light and colour (physical properties, mixing, etc); worth the 2wks it took to read through it all
      • study: Figure 10.1.3 (colour sphere from imagination using shading series–see strings in Figure 10.17)
    • Investigate new PS bristle brushes (adobe.ly/yiADeW) + mixer brush w/ textures
    • Black experiment: www.artistdaily.com/blogs/arti…
  5. Visual Library
    • CGMW - Dynamic Sketching with Peter Han (1-Day Workshop)
    • items from Visual Library Subjects x 3
    • Kalen Chock's Tips for Approaching Studies –> analyze ref with clear goal in mind and write down findings to better remember them (test findings in quick doodles if possible)
  6. Composition
    • Ian Roberts - Mastering Composition
      • thumbnail studies
    • Picture this by Molly Bang–try:
      • scale & rising placement to denote distance
      • diagonals for tension
      • upper part of image = happy, spiritual; lower part = grounded, sad, threatening
      • white bg = safe; dark bg = foreboding
    • Posing video -> meh
  7. Technique/General
  • Reading: If on a winter's night a traveler
  • Watching: Person of Interest
  • Playing: Cities: Skylines
  • Eating: Cherries
  • Drinking: Tea
I've always though that my lines lack sensitivity on the Intuos and Cintiq. Updating drivers and adjusting pen pressure curves didn't yield much improvement. In the end, I figured it was a lack of skill on my part (although I'm OK on paper) and hoped that things will improve with practice.

Today, I saw this: artiststoolbox.tumblr.com/post…

Turns out I've been using only half of the pressure levels available.

Needless to say, this made me feel simultaneously very dumb and very happy. :iconlazyrainbowplz:

So check it out if you've also been struggling with pressure sensitivity on the Intuos Pro or Cintiq.

Do you recommend any anatomy video series? I learn better from seeing another person drawing along with me.

I learned a lot from it. But different things work for different people, of course.

Batman kicks my ass. ;)
