Two Perspective Sketches

July 4, 2020 7:22 pm

Perspective study using Copic markers and Sakura fine-liners. I really like this approach to rendering buildings, and you can expect to see more of this style on my sketchbook.

Second one is a quick watercolour urban sketch that I did in Edinburgh. Ravens and seagulls are my favourite bird types, because they are the smartest. Pigeons are funny to draw.

Ultra Simplified Volumes

July 4, 2020 7:19 pm

Exploration of the female and male figure with emphasis on the difference in proportions. This is based on my previous anatomy studies, however, this time I wanted to start with simple shapes. Comic book artist David Finch suggest to start with a kind of a “vest” for the chest, and “pants” for the pelvis (see the thumbnails). I feel this is a very good way to start, because it makes it easy to establish the landmarks on the body.

These proportions are realistic, they are based on Gottfried Bhames who presents the statistical measurements for males and females.

Legs are often exaggerated, so fantasy women will have very long legs like fashion models. This is not naturalistic but it is very glamorous and flattering. Another exaggeration of the female is lifting up the iliac crest, which also gives the impression of long legs. In males, the most glamorous exaggeration is to make the chest wider. Long legs are flattering for both genders.

Anatomy Sketch Of Foot

June 21, 2020 7:41 pm

Just because people have feet and I draw every part of the body. I’m not a feet fetishist in particular ^_^’. Also pending are detailed studies of the features of the face, not sure when that will happen.
