Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Nancy- Thanks for your comments. i think his chin is short, also there is something wrong and artificial about his smile. I will check the smile muscles action and placement in Loomis book.

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

I never tried Loomis before, I usually just draw what I see...:P

Here's my attempt... don't think I got all the angles perfect, but I get how it works...


Those sketches from 123harry are great.... Pixar FTW.

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Chuck, Harry so aptly expresses our frustration at trying to get these shapes and formulas down... but you seem to have it licked first try. These are very well done!

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Thanks NancyMP... it's wasn't easy, it took me a little longer than I thought. I can see how a little repetition with these will make head drawing easier.

oops accidentally deleted my image file... here it is again.

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

This is such a useful lesson! I had managed to do a first few pages and scanned to a folder. But the size is bigger than the posting size, (< 600 dpi). Can you help me to find a save software to adjust the size for posting. I had not posted before due to the this technical incompletent.

Thanks

kim

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Hi Kim,
The easiest way is to use Paint software, which should be available under Programs - Accessories - Paint.
Open your image in Paint then go to menu item Image - Stretch/Skew sub item. I usually set Horizontal and Vertical (Stretch section) fields to 30%.
You should be able to load the resized image.

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Thank you Anna! This program is under my nose all these years and yet I did not know how to use it to post . Thanks to you, it is better late than never. Your drawings are impressive and beautiful. I am new to protrait therefore, not qualify to give any suggestions at the moment. But I know they looks good.

Anna; one more question. When I resize the followings sketches with 30%, sometimes I get one bigger than the other. Is it base on how I scanned them?

These are very messy with conte crayon, pencil and charcoal pencil and does not look alike those on the lesson, but I am trying.

C & C are always welcome.






Anna: It is not that difficult to post after all. Thanks

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Kim - Excellent work for the beginner. I think you do your resize a couple of times, that is why some images are so tiny. When you do your first resize, please save it. If you resize on the top of it, the program will resize from the current size, not the original one. In a nutshell, resize only once.

Chuckcamo - you got very precise and clean sketches.

Ella - I am not a master but can comment on your work. I love your sketches, especially the profile. The profile is the most challenging for me. Keep on the good job.

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Thanks Anna,

Teachers:

Why he does not look that old? I put the wrinkles at the left eye; the circles under his eyes and the wrinkles at the corners of his lips. Still he looks 10 years younger than the lesson plan. I have lots of fun doing these lesson.



C & C ALWAYS WELCOME!

Re: Portrait Challenge for January 2011!

Anna, thank you so much for comment. Your work looking good too.

When I'm not satisfied with the result, I start again.. Sometimes it happens that I have a good start but when I begin with the shading my image distort.
I think that practicing is the most important.
