Still working on block ins -not finished drawings- trying to get a consistent method/system using the same materials. I’ve been lost for a while making all the mistakes you’ve always tried to hammer home. I guess I’ve been a case study for all the things not to do if you want to progress (latching on to every style/tool I found interesting, not drawing everyday or at least regularly etc…)!!
I chose this reference for the complicated shadow shapes and highlights. I lost the proportions a bit – too narrow. Mainly I’m still after any help with getting the use of the charcoal for highlights correct. I used two values with the white charcoal and tried to only place them where they helped with form.
