Force Drawing Week 3 and Freehand Construction

Hi everyone,

I'm posting all my force gesture drawings for this week's class with Mike Mattesi. I'm also getting to the end of Scott Robertson's "How to Render" Vol 1 DVD. I was hoping to finish this construction and value study project quickly today and start watching the next DVD but ended up getting bogged down: plotting shadows is hard and figuring out what's wrong with them is even harder. I think I caught and fixed everything.

All images are freehand with my Wacom tablet, as always.

And I submitted these 2 for Mike's review:

More basic surfaces

Here's some more stuff. I'm working on improving speed and precision.

The sketches are a bit messy, as I was focusing on understanding the "halfway to black" system through value studies and getting used to sketching (with minimal clean-up) spline surfaces in perspective. I ended up buying most of Scott Robertson's instructional DVDs (except the one with airplanes) - working through them now.

Been producing about 50  force sketches a day for Mike Mattesi's class, but everything still looks way too crappy for public display. I hope I'll get better in the coming weeks.

I'll be posting more soon.

I Miraculously Disappeared

Hey gang! I haven't gone AWOL. I've been busy working, going through Scott Robertson's DVDs and last week Mike Mattesi's Drawing Force class started.

Doing a boat load of basic exercises. I'll post interesting things when I make them. In the meantime here are some of my exercise sheets.

Hope everyone is doing well.
