1 Hour Paint Study

Entering Suzanne Helmigh's competition and getting some practise in :)

Porsche 993 Turbo

So basically I've been trying to nail down shoulder curves and the placement of the top and main body.  

Actually that's been pretty pivotal in my learning... I believe it's really helped simplify forms.  That said, those shoulder curves are killing me!

Slight break!

I've been a little busy atm so haven't found much time for studies, that coupled with the fact that I'm really struggling with new shapes I'm trying to understand... Therefore have some skull studies! :)

Update! Random car study.

So I've come to the conclusion that breaking cars down into various parts and analysing them individually, is the best way to understand the type you're trying to draw.

I think I need to get out and do some car drawing irl too.  This book and google ref is great, but scale and weight still eludes me!

I've attached a page that has a few lines that I really like.  I think I'm finally starting to understand construction for these guys.  This coming week I'll be studying a sports car, should be fun! :D

Bugatti, how fitting!

So here she is, my first construction for a full car.

In a way I think I started to complex.  I need to focus more on the core shapes and build out from there.

I may have drawn myself into a corner too soon >.>

Oh well, more tomorrow! :D

The art of elipses.

Really nailing down this preliminary stuff.  Beginning to crave free drawing, but I know how important this stuff is.  Gonna nail it! :D

Sunday, February 3, 2013

Going full fundamental

Another update.  Thought I'd show how I'm taking a step back to follow up on drawing ellipses and core shapes in perspective.  Still working on my line confidence.

More Practise

Shapes are improving but I think I'll spend a few more days practising this stuff before moving on.

Fundamentals round erm... 6? 7?

So I've been working hard on the basics, here's more to show.  Just the tip on the plethora of dirty sketches mounting up.

I decided to go really slowly with this foundation to perspective stuff.  I'm glad I did as this new stuff can get quite complex!  Starting to build forms in 3D now! :D

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Back to the future!

A page from the technical drawings I've been working on.  Studying perspective in more detail.

I'll get a real camera that doesn't fish eye someday... :P
