Hey, thanks a bunch man! Yeah those proko tutorials really helped improve my understanding of facial anatomy a lot. But now that you mention it, I haven't really applied it heavily into my portrait studies much. I'm still bumming around trying to draw it kinda "my own way" (which isn't really very sophisticated in terms of technique and understanding). Definitely gonna bear that in mind the next time I draw and try to absorb his methods a bit more, like his way of shading light and shadow in layers and his ability to draw the big shapes into details. Basically working more with light and form as opposed to more linework like I'm stuck with now. Thanks again man, and all the best on your own progress as well, I'm sure it's gonna be terrific too!
Thank you! If you like, I'd recommend you to take a look at some of FZD's student works. They have a ton of study images of those perspective drawings that are 10000 times more powerful than mine. I'm actually taking them one of the examples of how to study. All the best to you man, hope you become awesome soon as well!
Okay! Got a small little update here. First is a really quick study of a town in bird's eye view. Really quick and sloppy with this because I had like only 20mins to paint before I had to rush off. But I think I managed to capture the colours proportion pretty ok, it looks way better zoomed out! Might do a couple more of these.
Aand more bug studies. Again, using an insect book for reference. It's called Insects of the World
by Anthony Wootton. Pretty cool. I'll be attempted to translate these isometric drawings into 3D perspective the next time.
And last are a couple of sketchbook pages. More visdev sketching and studies for my portfolio project - a redesign of Guardian's Crusade
, an old PS1 game. (I'll be posting my progress on this
thead!) The last page I was trying to draw some baby animals in order to learn how to capture "cuteness" lol. Trying to figure out how to redesign that little creature on the top left hand corner of the page.
