Ooh, love the tips and ideas on how to draw someone like this, by analyzing their face and then drawing them without staring at a picture. I'll have to try it out sometime and see how close I can get it to the original person! :la: It seems like it'll be quite a challenge.

Thank you so much for those tutorials, it really hepled me! I was just wondering at what age you would suggest to try those techniques. I just turned 13 but my art teacher said I was at a suprising level. Just asking because all these techniques are amazing and I don't know if I'm good enough to use them. (by the way, your drawings are amazing)

Ah, well as a beginner I started with sketch more than perfect circle xD And I don't technically recommend that too much because all I can do now is sketch...xD

is it bad if i consider sketching to be a lot less random and make every stroke to be more deliberate? since sometimes all those sketchiness giving me hard time to see where i can put the clean outline(with less erasing)

sometimes its like... first stage of sketching is veery light, second stage, medium, third stage, "i thought i made a clean and bold enough statement! now the paper's all too messy specially on the small subjects", *erases lightly*

 that "line efficiency" and growing up in confidence in drawing, i may not be so sure since i was thinking that its how drawing in general should progress, being more confidence, sounds easier than pulling a clean line, it actually needs us to have studied and getting used to what we draw.

This is a beautiful set of tutorials! They're so well-fleshed out and easy to follow.

The end statement almost made me cry, though - what a lovely sentiment about art in general! :iconawwwwwplz:

Thanks again for all the effort you put into these!! ^^

Hue I like reading all these.. Need to do the practice orz

I have a question though, is there a way to bring your rhythm to the final piece while not just coloring under a sketch? Its one of the biggest things that I have trouble with. ><

Damn. Well it was worth a shot asking x) Thanks for taking the time to respond ^^;

Though, if I may ask, how did you find your rhythm in a finished drawing?

FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012  Professional General Artist
the rhythm is something you experience when you sketch more than when you do the finishing touches.

You weren't looking at references when doing the last one? It's a re-imagining?

exactly, it's a re-imagining. The point with the tutorial was to not copy but to analyze the references :)

I don't see the point of this. You can learn realism if you study anatomy,copy photos,etc

if you copy a photo you just copy the photo, not the motive. It's better to analyze the reference than copying it.

It's interesting when people think swedish and german sound the same, I totally do not agree. I think danish sound more like german than swedish does.

Nice work! Now I think I'll know, what types of reference pictures I would have to choose - usually I've been using a lot of already photoshopped pictures, but now I can see, that it isn't always the best approach. And, about the circle thing, I also draw several circles, until it looks round enough for me. A nice tutorial - faved! :thumbsup:

:iconfoervraengd:
FOERVRAENGD Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011  Professional General Artist
very photoshopped pictures are NEVER the best approach. And once you know how real anatomy looks like, you will easier see if a photograph is badly photoshopped (it's amazing how many people cannot notice some photoshop disasters)

I know - some of the big photo studios also make mistakes - for example, last year, when there was the class photo day at my school, one of my friend's photo had an OBVIOUS white square on the forehead! We tried to understand, what was meant by that, and we concluded that either the editor was either a bit drunk, or maybe he tried to do an abstract depiction of the light reflection. :D

mmm yeeeaaah adding a white square on a photograph is so... abstract? I'd guess the file was a bit corrupted and trolled him!

Or maybe the editor wanted to try out minimalism? Who knows, but all I can say is that even..What was the guy's name again, with the arrow, from The Last Airbender? Even that guy wouldn't be caught dead with a huge white square on a forehead...:D

Because they are all of the same person? :)

and also because I wanted to vary myself since the earlier tutorials (except part 8) have only been caucasian faces.
