Even more construction




11 comments:

  1. how do you decide where to put the flow and rhythm once you have that construction step down? or do you naturally draw with flow in the first place..?

  2. I draw the flow and the rhythm first. I added the construction on top later to show what I was thinking about. I didn't actually draw this construction in when I did the drawing. I only draw like this when I am doing studies and analyzing stuff.

  3. But when you are moving your character in space, you do think about the construction, right ?

  4. Thanks again and again Rad..
    I like to design my characters without worrying much about the construction..like you said flow and rhythm first..
    this is an excellent way to check your character after.especially if I flip it!..also ..
    I have troubles sometimes when I go back to a suspended project ..I seem to have lost my "way" or need to learn the characters again..do you have any advice on making a sort of a guide to maintain the characters look and style for whenever you want to come back to them..or no easy ways ? :)

  5. Quentin: Yes I do think about it. I feel like my line is chiseling out around a form, if that makes sense.

  6. Rad, does the eyeline wrap perfectly around the sphere of the skull? I thought it didn't; that it's instead an almost-straight line that lies on top (like glasses). But after studying your latest two posts I'm starting to wonder otherwise.

  7. sw: on a real human, it curves. you can think of it as 3 flat planes. If it was one flat plane, the eye would be out by the nose in the profile shot. but, in profile the eye is deep inside the contour.

  8. Thanks Rad, I'll try to think of it as three planes and see how it goes.
