Trigger, yea man that wouldnt hurt to try just drawing from your head for a while.

Vic, thanks a lot! Your crits were really helpful!

Smrr, I would no doubt find pleasure in your examination of said etchings.

Rana, Stahp! You're too kind.

Nice sketches Adam. Your figures from life are looking good. Try to pay more attention to the proportion on your drawings from imagination - it's a bit off here and there, but i see a lot of improvement compared to the first few pages.


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 10-08-2015

Thanks guys, Im working a lot more from my head lately so the proportions should be getting there I hope.

Week 2 assignment done.

fist bumps smrr

character thumbs are funnnn


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 10-11-2015

Another gouache from life. Its not very successful due partly because i havnt painted in a while or gone to life drawing in over a month. that and she kept moving >:( It was a good challenge none the less however frustrating it was.


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 10-15-2015

more life drawing


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Bookend - 10-15-2015

Nice work Adam. Mostly, I think you have the same problem I do. Being able to go darker and fully render. Grin

Keep at it, though-- Keeps getting better and better!


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 10-17-2015

Thanks Book, yea I know they're light. I only have a short amount of time for each pose so I dont tend to rush into the darker values. The stuff thats I have more time on I use a full range of values. Thanks anyways :)

Heres some character thumbs, an enivro wip and a sketch of crackedskull from last nights hangout.

Dude!,

That fantasy composition, is very potentials :D Are you gonna render it?

Artur is fulla love i see XD

For going darker, maybe try, laying in flat dark and a relative light? Growing the darks is good but it can get tentative too much sometimes, try and get it close on the first block maybe?

Nice stuff, Adam! Your character thumbs are rockin, and I like the direction your EDR assignment is going in.


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - smrr - 10-21-2015

LMFAO ADAM! DUDE!
That effing sketch of crack3d -- I can't ev-- you're a legend
this is too good

Real talk- thanks for hanging hey! Seeing ya cranking out your studies in the Hangouts pushes me to work harder than I have been over the past year

awaiting an update with your recent work, but in the meantime I shall stare them badass nunz and at this glorious picture of crack3d lolol

You mean with the charcoal drawings? If I go dark too soon and I mess up erasing becomes too messy. I work from dark to light when I paint in gouache tho. With the charcoals the longest poses are 40 minutes and I dont want to rush the drawing to get to values. My focus is improving my drawing mainly to which Im still struggling to get exact likenesses and correct proportions. One thing at a time.

ZombieChinchilla, thanks! You're doing a great job on yours too.

Steph, щ(ಥДಥщ)

Fedodika, glad you like it haha!

Heres my assignment 3 wip and life drawing for the week.


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - dodeqaa - 10-23-2015

Colour options looking real nice man :) And you're definitely rocking those life drawings.

Yes I meant the charcoals. Not too much though. Could try a little more contrast and definition when you are laying in the darks.  Something like this?

It could be the camera and the lighting you're shooting it in though. I apologize if that's the case. 

Keep up the good practice man!


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 10-29-2015

Thanks for the crit Andrew! I'll try and speed up I guess. Life drawing is hard. Last nights session had 2 models. The poses were longer thankfully.


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - dodeqaa - 10-30-2015

Great work with these! Well drawn!


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - JyonnyNovice - 10-30-2015

hey man! thanks for your comments from before (ages ago now!). Awesome that you're getting into digital a bit more and the life drawing stuff is getting better and better. How cool to have two models posing together! Some of your imaginative poses seem to lack a clear line of action, I looked at Alex Woo's gesture course recently and he says it like: what is the point of the pose and how can you represent it with a single line? doesn't have to be from spine to weight bearing foot either, can be from one hand to the other like with the guy drawing the bow on the previous page. Get that single line nice and the rest of the body just supports that one action. It sounds basic but I really saw a huge bump in my imagination figures after putting the line of action at the front of my mind.

Keep up the good work ! Your sketchbook becomes more and more interesting every time I visit it !


RE: Would you like to come up and see my etchings? - Adam Lina - 11-10-2015

Thanks guys!

JyonnyNovice, thanks for the crit. I need to do more poses from my head. Im going to be doing a lot more imagined stuff. Thats good advice. Thank you.

just more stuff from the EDR mentorship.
