Sketch style in developement.

Postby tostra » Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:55 pm

So, here´s the thing, lately I´ve gotten tired of the classical sketching way. I still do that with harder poses to train my eye.

- just for show.

Now I think I´ve found my own style of drawing figures.



I´m not drawing likeness, I think the button-eyes are fast and simple, and a circle around the eye can show whatever the figure is feeling, so I draw the nose lenght and mouth corners according to the angle. Usually never finishing the other eye. Trying to lift the pen up as little as i can to make the lines flow and connect with other colors. Using line shading and sometimes drawing something random on the background and paint the shape black, to make the figure come to life. With this kind of sketching the mistakes doesnt matter, there are no mistakes, only lines. Im using usual black pen, markers, and stabilo color pens.

It is still developing, but I´d like to get some oppinions on it and some critique, there might be some things I dont see yet. This is where I need your help.

Thanks for your explanation, Tostra - your figures are
interesting and appealing - cast an eye towards hands and
feet - a lot of artists draw those in as an afterthought,
and keep up the good work! E.

I think your new style could be something special if you fine tune it. There was an artist on these boards who specialized in single line drawings. They were very complex, but he never lifted his pen from the paper. The entire drawing was connected by the same line. Your idea is very similar, but your style is much more loose and free. I think you can keep it loose and it will work, but you can also refine it a bit so it is a bit tighter. I would love to see more. I am sure you wuill be practicing.

Little update.




just a lot of them. Not shading the whole figure to let the pen lines come out. Loving the blue pen´s delicate line. And found myself playing with the sizes of the button-eyes, making them influence the feeling of a drawing like the pupils of an eye (bigger eyes for scared, frightened etc.)

Oh, and shading with color pencils.

You are really giving of yourself in this piece.
That's what painting is all about. Bravo.

This is it now. Still feel like I have to sit and stare at them long enough to see what I should do next, what to focus on.

Tostra I LOVE the sensuous carefree boy up top AND
the more fragile but very open boy beneath.
This is a really nice 'look'.
Not feeling the girl at all - looks like my Grandmother.
OMG, what an -ss I am - she's Your Grandmother!
Much, much better than the abandoned stadium.
