1. Action Figures! Decided to draw a football player, and it took a lot of attempts. The project actually hibernated for a few months. The trickiest part was to simplify that left leg, and the shorts. I tend to draw in a realistic way, but it helped drawing the figure from my own head. A good warm-up.
3. Page of Poses A page of twist poses. I am struggling to find a consistent way of drawing, easing into a more stylised look. It is not easy.
I added another iteration of the page of poses. Replaced the low-twisting man with a new guy. The overall impression is kind of the same, but I refined and added some details.
… and another iteration. I have noticed that I tend to exaggerate the lower part of the body when drawing live models. So I decided to use this biased way of drawing, thinking it could be a natural way of stylizing for me.
4. People in Shapes
I drew a pair of glasses in the corner of my page, and it turned out they belong to a man, lying on the floor wiping his glasses. Learned a lot about drawing and finishing art in Photoshop!
… and then I made some adjustments to the shadowing, added small details (that book he is reading must be very sad – or is he crying because his glasses shrank?) and put a rug underneath him.
