Try something different

by Cookedpitt, November 4th 2019 © 2019 Cookedpitt

just start to practice perspective and wanted to do some different than people

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 30 minutes in length.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form

Firstly, I'd like to say that overall this peice looks really nice! One thing I noticed is that the perspective on the house looks a little bit off, specifically on the roof. Consider drawing grid lines to help you like things up accurately? I recommend Biana Bove's videos on background and perspective on YouTube if you're not quite sure how to set it up. The trees contrast with the relatively plain background a lot, and kind of stick out and draw your attention away from the house. I recommend adding more trees to make it look less odd, or changing the location of them. If you like the location of them, consider adding detail to the grass. I like the way you drew the mountains too! They make a very nice backdrop for this piece! :) keep drawing!


Thank you for taking the time to look and critique my work. I had a really hard time with the roof and thank you for the advice. I think part of the problem with the focus is that I drew the picture to off-center. And they original photoThe house is more to the center. As for the trees they where supposed to be onrolling hills grass that I didn't draw. thank you again for taking the time.
