I don’t know if I can do the sorts of exercises that are on this site due to my OCD (it’s really difficult to explain), but I was hoping I could get some critique here anyway.
I know the rules say that nude sketches are okay as long as they’re not doing sexual acts, but I’m censoring the butt because hey, I’m new here and I don’t want to step on any toes. :P
I’m especially having trouble with the hands (the initial name for the file was ihatehands.jpg), namely the right one. I try using models, but I have trouble finding the exact correct model for the hand, and I also have trouble visualizing what I want in my head and then “translating” it to paper. As you can see, I made an attempt at drawing a skeleton for the hand, but it’s the wrong size, the wrong angle, and, well, wrong everything else.
Any help would be appreciated. Not just for the hands–if anything stands out, please feel free to let me know.
To improve at drawing you first need to focus on learning how to draw. Learn the basics of perspective and how to draw simpel threedimensional forms. Any object can be related to a sphere, box or cylinder, so learning how to properly draw these will give you a solid foundation for drawing everything else. The human figure consist of three dimensional forms;it’s not flat! To draw it properly you need to learn to think in 3D.
Once you’ve learned how to draw form it’s a matter of analyzing the form of the particular object you want to draw, be it a car, animal or a human.
