152 : gesture, study and imagination!

Alrighty, I'm super busy but I will try to make sure I do these studies daily nomatter what! I did some 30 second poses from posemaniacs, then I did some studies from (without timer), and afterwards I did a few poses from the imagination without ref. Really have to do that more often. Need more knowledge, need to get better aaarrrgggghhhh!!

Same rythm as yesterday. 30 second poses from and one from photo ref within clock.


I don't have much time lately, so doing minimal effort on these :(

30 second poses and one untimed pose from a ref.

149: Freestyle gestures

Today I tried to cartoonify my posemaniac sketches, just try to find some character and draw up something loosely based on the sketchbook pose.

148: gestures

No tonal today, instead I did untimed poses from posemaniacs and some drawings from that manga book with clothfolds. It's sunday and I reserved today for some personal creative work, and Boardwalk empire tonight :P

147: posemaniacs

Today I tried out some new stuff. I drew some poses from posemaniac and in photoshop on a new layer I drew a character based on that pose. Trying to translate these sketches to some actual drawings. I hope this will make those drawings stick more in my head.

146 : Folds studies

Did some studies of folds in clothing.

20 minute page from a book I bought about 9 years ago :P "How to draw Manga: Dressing your character in Casual Wear". It's a pretty useless book, but good for reference studies.

I then googled a random fashion pic and did a quick study (20 mins):

145: gestures + drapery

When is this flu going to go away..for some reason it's much harder to focus when you're feverish :P Anyway, I did manage to do some gestures..I tried something different then usual, instead of going for really quick strokes I did much slower lines...I set the timer to 60 seconds.

And finally did a quickstudy of a sculpture in the Louvre (photo ref). Somebody on gave me the advice to use opaque brushes instead of brushes with transparency. I think in the long run it will help to get things down quicker.

144: Tonal Study

Went to bed early yesterday in the hope I'd be feeling better today, but nada! Haha, I feel even worse today! Regardless I did my warm up drawings and I'll move on to some storyboards now.

143: Tone study

Feeling really under the weather..drowsy and sleepy :P Had a busy day sorting out stuff in town, but luckily still at least did my daily study. Going to get up early to make up for today's poor workload :(

60 second poses from
