Hello. This is a five minute croquis.To gain experience, I would like to put up a croquis every day.
I get bored easily, but I think I'm going to try my best to keep up. I hope you can support me.
I admire Charles Bargue. It's mainly about shading.July 24, 2021 8:28am #27409
OK, your fondness for Charles Bargue explains the expert finish on your foot sketches.
A bit of a warning, so, the teaching method of the French Academy is,... a bit special. You wouldn't even be allowed next to live models before you painstakingly copied about a hundred expert drawings of greek plaster statues, all with an instructor peering over your shoulder and telling you what exactly to take away from those plates. After that you are meant to spend half a lifetime drawing those same statues yourself.
Croquis Cafe, with its focus on quick sketches, would have been seen as complete heresy!
Given your experience with Atelier drawing, you probably know how much of what I said is true, and how much was exaggerated for dramatic purpose, but the actual point I want to make is, that you probably gain more from Croquis Cafe if you take a look at some quick sketching theory and a constructional approach to drawing. My alltime recommendation would be proko.com, the free courses. It's quite systematic in explaining the approach, follows it through all the way to detailed studies of anatomy, and Stan Prokopenko has by far enough experience with this technique to show off its promises.
Another popular approach to quick sketching would be Mike Matessi's force method. The method is about the polar opposite of the Atelier technique, with its total focus on movement, focus and dynamique. It's frankly a bit alien to me, but the results of those who study it are undeniable. This one might be interesting to you, exactly because it's so different from what you done so far.
Generally with Atelier drawing as your introduction to art, you have already decided for a spicy mix of techniques. Finding the perfect blend will be up to you, but what I seen so far from you looks promising.

Thank you, Aunt Herbert.
Thanks to you, I have learned how to draw different kinds of human bodies.
proko.com, the free courses, is good! I thought I should learn about anatomy. I am also interested in Mike Matessi's force method. It's a fascinating line.
I'll have fun crocheting!July 26, 2021 9:26am #27421July 26, 2021 2:09pm #27425
Well, sietu, I completely and really admire your current efforts of the croquis. Great work on your organic forms and gestures, greater job on every one of them.
So, in order to help you ease yourself into the shading, atelier-Charles-Bargue-style, you must and oughta loosen up your lines, cause your poses are not getting enough of the freedom of graphic lines. Would you please do that with 9 minutes of 4 minutes and 30 second warm-ups? (2)
After all, there is no right or wrong way to do things, sometimes.
Mostly, when you're getting the fluid drawing, it's best to work gradual but quickly.
As a result, your subjects and studies will be able to achieve absolute and energetic drawn likenesses. So, take this quote with a grain of salt, but this is worth it for us. Cheers to you, and I hope this helps you out.July 27, 2021 6:54am #27432
I did a 4 minute 30 second warm up for 9 minutes.
Your words and quotes are very informative. Thank you so much.
I will try to work slowly and quickly. Aiming to draw fluidly.

You are not a beginner. I really like the baby drawing. Overall you have a good sense of the figure. You need to work on the hands (fingers ) and feet (toes).
The hand as you know is composed of 4 fingers plus the thumb. The fingers are composed of 3 parts each of which can bend. This makes the hand very expressive. I would recommend you start with a stick structure of the fingers to arrange the fingers in a manner pleasing to you and your needs. Once you have this done, you can fill out the fingers and the hand. The ends of the fingers are arranged in an arc (not aligned straight across).
With feet, you are dealing with a triangular shape with the big toe on the inside and the 4 toes arranged in an arc (not straight across).
Rendering hands (fingers) and feet (toes) correctly will make your works much more believable.
You can use Pinterest to look up Charles Bargue and other information on the body.
Remember: Practice makes better.July 28, 2021 7:34am #27441
Thank you, Tx Willep！
Your advice is correct.
I need to pay more attention to my feet and hands. I'm not very good at drawing hands and feet. I am not good at drawing hands and feet, but I want to get better with lots of practice.
I will try my best to be aware of the stick structure.
I want to make use of pintarest.
