Hey ats, I wont expand too much on the subject matter, but I am doing a large scale drawing on the subject of life and death, destruction and creation
etc. With an emphasis on the wholeness of the two in our existence. Here is the study- pre sketch for the death character, the life character will be
fat, female, pregnant, beautiful, pure to contrast everything you see in this sketch, enjoy, and comments are welcome. eg. "It looks like hes a
stripper on the pole" courtesy of the honest girlfriend lol.
lol see I'm glad you told me that, I wouldn't see it otherwise. Its meant to be hollow and empty, i'm not rendering from a model so I basically
feel my ribs and draw, then feel the pelvis and draw trying to make it 3Dproper.
It will have a background so you will see through him and hopefully not look like a helmet
Hey, that is a real nice piece of work. I get a little lost in the details and small stuff and how you made depth work for the side of the rib cage,
among other areas, is quite good. I think my classes are teaching me enough this semester to identify what is good in examples and bad in my own. When
I get to the point where I can create something of that type, I'll really feel this tuition cost has been well spent. Great Art!
What sort of program are you in? I spent a year in university for art it was divided into Graphic design or Traditional art, although the first year
was basically the same so students had the option of switching programs the second year. ( I did graphic design- and hated it- oh Helvetica how you
tormented me so! they made us draw by hand 30-40 pages of different fonts.... I left the second week of my 2nd year)
Thats a relief thankyou lol. I did try to make death look more like a diety rather than the old skull face under a hood. I might go so far as leaving
his face completely black with only his eyes showing. Usually hes all mysterious and no personality... booring
OP it's real nice, but I am guessing you are like me and afraid you can't do the face to well, hence why you went for the symmetrical but easy
alternative, please give it a go and draw the face in he same semi skeletal form, you may surprise yourself with what you can do, and please post
