RE: Animal Alphabets
Great image @IanS !
Sounds like a nice challenge. I did some challenges before, 365 doodles where you would get a prompt each day and of course Inktober. I like the rush a challenge brings but missed focusing on the things I wanted to make for my portfolio. Right now I’m thinking of setting a personal challenge for myself.
Good luck with your challenge, would love to see the rest of the alphabet! Will you be posting it here or can I follow it somewhere else?
RE: Drawing kids, resource suggestions?
@smceccarelli Thank you so much for your suggestions! I didn't know Loomis had more on kids, will look into that. Plus the other books you mentioned.
You are right, practice trumps theory, but since I am so unfamiliar with drawing exact ages (like how a kid of 5 is different than 6 or 7) I could really use some pointers. I plan to do a personal project and draw every age for a week, starting at newborn, up to 18.
RE: Holiday promos
Wow this piece looks great! Would be nice as a FB banner as well.
There are already so many great suggestions made, I would add that it might be nice to make the hanging bear a little smaller and the bear on the left side has his leg crossed in front of him, maybe it would read better if the foot (his right foot) would be a bit more directed forwards, towards the viewer.
Drawing kids, resource suggestions?
I want to get better at drawing kids of different ages. Do you have suggestions on finding more information about this?
I can not find any good anatomy resources. I know Loomis discusses kid's proportion very briefly but I was hoping to find some more extensive information.
When I google it I can only find tutorials on how to draw one kind of kid but I would like to know more on how to draw different ages etc.
Would love any suggestions! Thanks!
RE: svs video class question
@marsha-kay-ottum-owen You can complete lessons by clicking the green button on the right side under the video. (i believe it says 'Next" and then it changes to 'mark as complete' . If you get a checkmark it will register as complete. You have to do so for all video's and documents for one course before it will say 100% complete. Hope this helps you!
RE: Developing your imagination
Interesting discussion @demotlj
All suggestions are great. The one that works best for me is a bit like @carriecopa
ask questions and try making them more and more absurd (a fun exercise)
Start asking questions about everything! If you draw a person in a coffeeshop, ask yourself why is this person doing what he does? @Diego_BioSteam mentioned this too, but for me it works best by starting with the most simple question: why? And then more and more questions and answers will pop up.
@Diego_BioSteam thanks for sharing the video's!
