I caught some Brazilian Jiu Jitsu matches at @f2wpro in Seattle last Friday. Impressive production. BJJ has come a long way in 10 years.
Doing touristy things while mom is in town.
DAY #9: Lunch time sketching. Really starting to dig Superman now that I can actually (sort of) draw faces. Capes? Not so much.
DAY #8: I ditched the classical anatomy lessons today in favor of some fun sketches. Wonder Woman is my first attempt at a female (and hair!), so I left that one rougher. I can tell I'm improving because these only take me 30ish minutes now.
DAY #7: Playing with more foreshortening. I'm a little embarrassed posting this one. That hand *cringe*... but we all know that continual, unabashed self-correction is the most direct path to improvement... or something like that, right?
DAY #6 (cont): Ok, one more today. First attempt at foreshortening. Botched the proportions a bit. Oh well.
DAY #6: One more day practicing humanoids, but aiming for something more interesting tomorrow!
DAY #5: I'm starting to experiment with some figures after picking up an Andrew Loomis book at @arielzbart's suggestion 🙏🏻 It's really interesting drawing the human form. You quickly realize that the passive preconceptions you have about size and proportion are way off.
DAY #4: Inking is really hard. When you look at a sketch, your brain can choose the best lines and fill in the rest. Inking forces you to pin it down. I hate that part... I have a new found respect for inkers.
DAY #3 (cont): I've started calling this the "Poké Ball" method.
DAY #3: "Here's looking at you, kid." Learning to draw eyes from Todd McFarlane.
DAY #2: Some more Batman angles and basic arm anatomy work.
