For my ECMP355 class, I have chosen to undertake a Learning Project. For my first post about it, I’ll just start with listing some of the tools I will be planning on using. I’ll also include a basic sketch of a male model I’ve begun prior to undertaking this project, just to show whereabouts I am with my skillset.
My goal is to be able to draw humans in an anatomically correct way at any time through my knowledge of the human figure. As of now, I am confident in many areas BUT human anatomy – Something I’ve always wished to change! I will be using traditional and digital media in the forms of my self-made sketchbook and my Wacom Tablet.
I found these tutorials online a long time ago. They are very in-depth, and are easy to understand. At the end of every tutorial segment, there are “homework” segments. Not only will I be completing those, but I will be duplicating some of the more major images in each segment. Very useful; I’ll be using these, primarily.
This website was originally written in Japanese, so it was difficult to navigate. However, due to monthly donations, the creator has made a more English version! I will be using this tool quite a bit, too, towards the end of my learning project. There are over fourty thousand “nude” models.They feature some models of men, women, children, and bodybuilders. They also have a thirty second drawing tool, which I will be utilizing more later on. SUPER useful website!
I found this website more recently. It features an “AtarichanDrawer” tool that randomly generates stick models placed in foreshortened positions. This will be a wonderful exercise to complete later on in my project.
4) I am also considering Livestreaming some of my works.
I have always been interested in livestreaming my work. Some of the most influential artists, for me, livestreamed their drawings. I was able to watch their procedures and practices, which let me learn and grow. Perhaps, with some of my sketches, I may be able to livestream my creation of them. This is still up in the air, though; It will not be until later on that I’ll do this. I’ll give 1-2 weeks warning prior to a livestream of my work, if I do.
Here is my aforementioned muscle study:
