Here is my 5th and last installment (here on my Blog) of my mission to draw 40 women. I will not be posting all 40 drawings, those interested, can see them in my online sketchbook on Conceptart.org. My thoughts on conclusion of this exercise are:
1. This did help with my drawing, but I think I was expecting more. I know you get out what you put into it, but I think if I had broken this down to certain areas of anatomy it would have helped me more.
2. I didn’t need to render-out every study, simple line drawing with shading would have been sufficient. I also could have left out the hair and other details.
3. I will need to do this again, because through these studies I realize where my weaknesses are. Faces, hands, feet, proportions,etc.
I will be starting my first oil painting next, I’m really excited about this. I’ll post my updates every week. Either I will fly or crash-and-burn, but my motto is “the comfort-zone is boring.”
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and keep drawing,
