Last two digits are how many hand studies you have to do.
i did 90+ or something i don't know
helped me loosen up
Not him, please stop giving people bullshit advice, you stupid fuck. You learn a thousand times more by copying Bridgman than by copying photos of hands. His drawings are exaggerating the 3D shapes and surface anatomy of the hands so you can memorize the important landmarks that are far less defined and visible in photos of hands or your own hand. Once you get that, you can draw from photos or your own hand and apply that knowledge.
copying bridgmans implied lines and exaggerated shit wont teach you anything, you need to figure out the logic behind it yourself! copying it just teaches you advanced symboldrawing (just look at the fucking line in the middle of the wrist in the top left hand >>2379893 it makes so sense when mindlessly copied)
are these ones any good by the way? my first try drawing from observation
yes, now go study anatomy,structure, and do gestures,your hands look really stiff, you could watch proko videos or study from figure drawing books like Michael hampton's, Bridgman's, etc, you have some perspective and structure errors, also your shading is a little confusing, try to follow the shapes form to suggest perspective instead of doing all kinds of scribbles e.g curvy lines for rounded shapes, straight for square shapes/ rectangles.
But at the same time, after going through a lot of them you do kind of get the idea behind the forms. So thanks for motivating me. Wish I didnt rush through them that fast, mightve done a bit better.
OP here, halfway through, will most likely have to do some tomorrow
Agreed. I also like Burne Hogarth's book. (which is where I got most of my ref from for this). Copying photos is retarded.
Good start. Your lines are still very chicken-scratchy. It's better to commit to a line that may be slightly wrong than to have the right line buried under a bunch of scribbles.
fuccbois who aren't gonna make it detected
you best be joking nigger
Something to note, is that the knuckles, especially when viewed from the side are further back than you think. Your hand has extra padding on the inside that extends past the knuckles thus they look further back.
what if I make an animation and instead of different hands its frames of the hand moving
i posted these in the draw thread but whatever i drew these today and im doing more right now
>you need to figure out the logic behind it yourself!
>>Just ignore any material that could be helpful, you need to figure it all out yourself...because I said so!!1
Fuck off with this bullshit.
all finished, gonna keep at it. rolling for how many sets are arms
Fuck it, I'm out of time.
You guys roll on.
Yeah random.org is better, not rolling, gonna go on random.org. Pic related done a minute ago
EDIT : Fuck i got 93, well gonna stick to that
Only four. Sorry for shitty cellphone picture, it's all I have to work with.
Just bought a pack of pencils and blank paper tried a few sketches any advise if like to draw nice has and work of my skill with perspective for portraits
so far, so abysmal. Feeling a lot of drawn-hand envy right now. First ever study by the way.
...It might take me a few days. Or weeks, if the thread survives long enough.
Sorry I have never done formal art
What do you mean:
>what I think I see
I'll try some more with just strong lines
Should I just put shading on the back bench till I get strong lines down?
Ok I think the top left if pretty bad now looking at it
After watching a video
I don't like the thump even tho it's tucked under
Something I see in a lot of yours is that you seem to lose track of how big the thumb and fingers should be in relation to each other. I used to have that problem a lot when I first started out, I'd start with the thumb and then move onto the fingers and then do the rest of the hand, but once I looked at it as a whole I'd realize the thumb was fuckhuge compared to the rest. You should make an effort to measure while you're doing these instead of just trying to eyeball it, and remember to take a step back and look at the hand as a whole while you're working instead of getting tunnel vision piece by piece. It really makes a big difference. Good luck with the rest of your hands, hope this helps.
So you do hand studies with your own hand or photo reference? Or both? There are some hand positions and angle I can't really do with my own hand while drawing.
Or copy from Bridgman's anatomy book? His drawings look so fucking weird to me but they also kinda make sense i can't describe it (also only men fucking sexism desu senpai).
more from me Sorry for not rolling Im new I dont wanna do alot without getting critique in between
You might want to look into Villpu and focus moreso on understanding the underlying shapes of what you are drawing. My hands (and all my drawings) looked pretty similar to that, but once I really started to deconstruct things, like I thought I was doing but really wasn't) the volume became so much more evident and I really improved.
I know a PDF copy of Villpu's Drawing Manual is easily available online if you just google it or worse comes to worse ask here. I imagine some of Bridgman's books are as well, or just google the images; his books are pretty sparse on text, at least Constructive Anatomy
Check out the book thread for a ton of resources. You should find everything that was suggested. I recommend loomis for construction. Also bridgmans constructive anatomy is heavier on example drawings that I suggest copying and very light on text.
Not him but thanks for that anon... I'm taking a big break from digital art and all I'm doing now is life drawing, trying to understand reality instead of trying to draw on someone's style...
Just bought a new pilot pen to try. Let's see how this goes
fuck it took forever, still have some to do but probably will just sketch it
crits please? i know the construction could use some work.
