The drawings where all done in Corel Painter 12. :)

Do you think I should post more studies like this? Do you find this helpful?

I post a lot of my studies on my tumblr blog. But I know that not everyone here use tumblr, so I thought that I might as well show you what I'm doing nowadays, which is.... studies! Lots and lots of studies and exercises! Right now I'm into vehicles, since technical stuff has definitely been something outside my comfort zone for WAY too long!
Doing these kind of studies is highly recommended, you'll improve very fast. Do not do only one drawing, but draw at least four on the same canvas and/or paper. Take notes! Write them down on the paper is even better! :)

Hi, this was really helpful, not like a tutorial but more like an inspiration for art students to improve.

I've been doing something like this with armors, since i mostly draw medieval fantasy stuff.
I even designed an "anatomy study of armors" haha

They may not be necessarily helpful, but they are interesting! And inspirational. I'd never even thought of drawing motorcycles until now, because I can't draw machines well. Which is more of a reason to draw them! Anyway, this is awesome. I love the drawing of you. It's so badass. And I love your hair. It's so not there, and that's badass.

you could try doing different styles of motorcycles :] you got 2 of them. the 3rd is when the feet of the rider are behind his/her back.

Cruisers (legs in front) are like the harley
Standard (feet under) aka naked bikes: Aprilia Mana for one, most motorcycles you see on the street in Europe are under this category.
Sport (rider leans forward/feet behind)BMW K1200s

Was that helpful? I love your guide, by the way. I didn't mean to completely geek out on you about motorcycles :P

I definitely think you should post more studies like these! There's always a lot of stuff for animals and people even enviroments, but it's rare to see studies on things like everyday items and vehicles

You did a great job stretching your comfort zone, I wish I could've stayed for more of the stream, which was one of the most enjoyable (funnest isn't a word, WTH?) yet. I think that you should do more of these, they're really great.

I don't know how the gauge the helpfulness of posts like this but I find them very interesting and therefore encouraging. =D Like reading a blog about someone else cooking makes you think about what you want to cook next.

Most of its helpfulness, in my opinion, probably lies in that people (myself included) get a better idea of how studies are done. Its all very well to say 'I'm going to do studies' but when people don't really know how to approach the material, it can get very frustrating. :)

I'm sure there's many different way to do studies. This is just my own approach on the subject. But yeah, it's always fun to look at artists sketches, that's were you really can see their own personality in the pen strokes.

You would be doing so many artists a huge favor if you did indeed post more studies here. Thank you so much for posting this one especially! I've been wanting to add a bike to an artwork for ages, just never got around to it, but this will be immensly helpful for when I do; I also am so very glad you added the rederences you used into the comment box, I saved them for later for my own references as well. That cane one is great!

Ayy, is that what the Triumphs are looking like these days? I thought they were sticking with the classical look. I guess with their racebikes they're expanding their horizons, but I think their newer tourbikes are still in the old style.

No, I haven't. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty out of the loop. I did see a newer Triumph a few months ago, and it had the classic look. Other than that though, my most recent experience with a Triumph is an ancient Bonneville. When I was really little my dad used to have a TR3, those were the good days...

Very nice. I love drawing vehicles. To see other people sketching and what they use for reference. In addition, what insights they have into how to draw certain vehicles, such as proportions, is very useful. :)

:iconfoervraengd:
FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012  Professional General Artist
I usually don't really enjoy vehicles that much, or more like... I've never really TRIED to draw a motor bike before lol. But I must say, if you have basic knowledge in how to observe and analyze shapes and forms, you can very quickly learn to draw new stuff!
Reply
:iconjopezstags:
JopezStags Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Very much so. If you over think the form of the object you won't get it right. Everything breaks down into shapes. As an artist you aren't trying to make it so perfect an engineer could build the bike. You're making the impression of it, so that a viewer can say, "I know what that is." Or, that drawing brings back memories of biking across the country with my best friend from college.

FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Professional General Artist
True :) I think the best reference of them all I had here were the one that was not a real motorbike but made out of some... wire? I dunno lol, but it broke down the basic shapes in a way that really lit the light-bulb in my head haha.

:iconjopezstags:
JopezStags Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah. That wicker one? I like to squint my eyes when I'm trying to generalize an object... probably not good for my eyes... but it helps me understand the shape and the general lighting. Using an abstraction of the object detaches you from what the object is and allows you to focus on the form.

I find that is true when I started to learn how to draw people. If I thought about it being a person first, I could never get it right. I'm still learning but thinking about the person as objects linked together helped so much. Circles, squares, etc. I've also been doing a lot of figure drawings lately, that's helping a lot with making my characters come alive.

FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012  Professional General Artist
Squinting the eyes is actually a common technique used by artists, so it's not so "wicked" for me to hear haha. I have bad vision, so I usually just take off my glasses and lean back so it all gets a bit blurry. it's great to find shapes and contrast/silhouettes.
