simple poses and expressions

Ok, I am trying something different.

I picked a character (cousin of george) and tried some different poses. The first pose is one I got from Amir's blog.

They are not really good because they are not very on model. But I encounted some new problems for me. Like how I should start with making a pose and how does his body work. Besides that I see that I now overlooked some things, like a sleeve that looks strange etc.

I wanna try this more in the future, I think I can learn allot from it.


Seeing it now back, it looked like I didn't used a line of action (my girlfriend attended me on that). It looks kinda stiff.... The details don't curve and go with the line. Maybe I should be a bit more carefull when I am drawing. Drawing slow and think!

Hmm need to buy some new pencils...

I did a new one. I tried to do a better job on the action line. I don't understand the hands that good. Anyone have tips? Anyone have tips for better lines?

Use basic construstion for hands too. It helps for me to draw a circular shape for the body of the hand, then attach the fingers. (Just like a drawing a body)

It's amazing (to me at least) how incredibly clean these Slab drawings are. In addition to that, the mouths are pretty interesting.

It would be a godsend if I could draw this well (yet again, I'm not as old you. Plus, I already envy a ton of artists.)

Pointless notice: I've finally had the chance to link to you and Amir Avni. I've been meaning to do it for a while now.

Yeah, hands are one of the many things I need to practise allot more.

"It's amazing (to me at least) how incredibly clean these Slab drawings are."

I think I need to loosen up more. My lines looks kinda stiff, def need to work on that.

"It would be a godsend if I could draw this well (yet again, I'm not as old you. Plus, I already envy a ton of artists.)"
