Comparison 1

by Polyvios Animations, March 16th 2020 © 2020 Polyvios Animations

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 10 minutes in length.

My current goal is: Make a scene and environment precisely without any ruff preparation

Here is my first comparison of a scene. It's a sketch is of the empty room in a parking lot building. And here's the photo it's inspired from. What do you think? What can I do to make it exceptional?


It looks like you need to improve on overall patience. Work on straighter lines, more precise choice in colors, and your pieces will definitely soar further! :)

Yes, I will work on that.

The black and white in the original pic adds to the mood, at least how I get it. A mysterious indoor, sad and abandoned thing, whilst your drawing is vibrant and colored and has a more outdoorsy appeal (with yeallows, greens and oranges). If you still want colored, make some tests with cold colors, with little saturation and darker ones (cold colors that tend to gray)... try it over and over for this ref, maybe start with miniatures.

you don't need to have many choices in material... with what you have try mixing the oil crayons, but with less colors. making layers of colors the crayons tend to mix and cover the paper, making gradations and appearing like there are many colors. mix gray, black, white, blue, purple... understand how your medium works. perhaps what some videos about mixing crayons or pencils or whatever you decide to use, so you get more independent on creating colors that you don't have

understand how there are darker and lighter parts in the pic.

your drawings look really creative and dynamic, keep going. if you like abstract not realistic drawings try to get the "mood"
