Loose Streetway

by Polyvios Animations, June 26th 2020 © 2020 Polyvios Animations

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 27 seconds in length.

My current goal is: Draw my one-point perspective, in my backgrounds, scenes, and environments, with most, most, and most instinct, and most, most, and most feeling.

Here is my latest sketch, of the streetway, of the east coast beach city. And it's very loosest, and fullest of all the life. What do you think?

P.S. My one-point pers has the loosest instinct, and the loosest feeling.

Hi there Polyvios

There is a great deal of expression in the linework, but I honestly couldn't tell that the image was a street and I don't notice any one-point perspective. Abstract expressionism is perfectly fine, but if the goal of the image was to depict something recognizable and within nature than the expression cannot be considered at the expense of making the subject recognizable. There are many ways you can express how you feel about something (you could use colors instead of lines or you could push shapes to extremes, etc...), but the best way to maintain the expression while keeping the subject recognizable is to study how something actually looks in real life. Because your goal includes one point-perspective, I would recommend starting there. I would recommend practicing perspective with boxes so you can understand the fundamentals of this technique. It can be very boring and feel restrictive at first, but studying the scientific aspects of art is not against emotional expression; it simply gives artists the tools that allow them to apply their emotions while maintaining a certain degree of realism to their work. I hope that helps you out.
