Title: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on August 26, 2015, 05:07:38 AM
Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop


- When more than 2 members are willing, start a study on simple objects and be able to draw them from memory at the end of the week. You can wait for a prompt or start a prompt


- Things in the world are always complex yes, but things like cups, kettles, even small animals (So long as you're able to break them down properly) are made up of simple shapes and forms. If it comes to things like the human body then focus on singular aspects rather than the whole body

* Construct the object when you draw it last, or just go with how you remember it. However be honest and draw what you have recorded from your mind, otherwise the workshop is moot




After a friend of mine said that he's studied trucks and added features to his 'visual library' I stopped to think of what he actually meant.

Most people are surrounded by things all the time and come to you asking can you draw me a teapot or a bottle of vine or whatever... and they are gobsmacked when you can... Those things are surrounding them every day,!!! they are just blind to it. They see the concept of the teapot but they don't see THIS SPECIFIC teapot with what makes it unique.

When you look at something, you should have the eye of someone who is trying to understand every aspect of the fabrication of it.
What is the texture, color, shape, what makes it different from another specimen of the same species - that applies to everything and anything -
It is tiresome at the beguining caus' we're not use to pay that much attention to what's around us, but it gets better with time... and You and up doing it in auto pilot after a while.

From what I hear it's also possible to have an external visual library where you basically collect a crap tonne of photos for references and the like. Apparently both methods work.



So I had this idea that we actually go through the process of learning how to draw something just from memory and hopefully drawing it from a side view and above view with out own learnt method of construction

count me in, i love this sort of thing and need to do it more
i think we should focus on objects/props rather than the body, since thats sort of a whole subject on its own, and we could spend a whole year just on that :P
nice idea lego :P

Post by: legomaestro on August 31, 2015, 06:31:05 PM
Ah, thanks for the support suuper. And yeah I agree.

Mostly this is a workshop on how to do studies haha. What would you propose first? Writing instruments? Smart phones? Drinks? Fruit?

Hmmmmm... something like that.
I will have a think about it and post back when I'm on my computer, I'm on my tablet at the moment.

Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on September 06, 2015, 03:58:08 PM
sorry for the delay, my internet has been a pain i couldnt load MR properly the last couple of days for some reason so didnt post much.
i think like you said in the first post vehicles is a nice idea, since most stories/illustrations often have one in there somewhere.

narrowing it down to individual ideas i would like to try out:
train interior or exterior (quite common in manga and anime)
bicycle (another manga must)
motorbike (girl in bikini or otherwise similar clothes optional :P)

ermmmm nothing else comes to mind for now but i'd love to try out those. motorbikes are just cool, and have plenty of detail to copy and remember,so maybe that first, or a warm-up round with a toaster or something? that way we can adjust the workshop to improve it :P

i think we should look at this workshop like this:
-copy the picture exactly
-draw the picture, copying but use guidelines, trying to build up the picture rather than copy it
-draw at a different angle (perhaps still copying the original picture or another one?, using guidelines?)
-draw from memory, using guidelines
-draw from another angle from memory using guidelines
-change the picture, but drawing from memory (like make the motorbike have 4 wheels or big lights who knows)
-include it in a larger piece, make it part of a scene or use a part of the object in something else

probably in that order. the last 2 parts is a good idea, because most of the time you are creating your own version of objects, so you want to be able to change them and add or take away stuff to make it cooler, especially for a science fiction story with mechas and stuff, you make up the robots etc from bits of everything you have seen.

will we all try and work from the same selected picture like in the character workshops?
or select our own, which gives us the chance to pick something more to our own style?

hope this will turn out fun and helpful :P

Post by: legomaestro on September 06, 2015, 04:18:20 PM
That sounds a lot more complicated than what I had in mind in terms of retaining something in memory. That's why I thought we should focus on singular aspects rather than entire wholes.  We'd end up going ot square one where we have to supplement stuff with tonnes of references. Unless it really is possible to draw a motorcycle from memory from any angle and still make it recognizeable. I'd take my chances with a toaster for sure, and even that is dubios.


Still if you're up for it we could go for a trail run.
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on September 06, 2015, 04:22:47 PM
hmmmmm seems i probably had a different idea, sorry for over complicating things :P

simple objects
whoops :P

ok how about a watch ?
(i could have just said that one line instead of my huge post lol)
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on September 06, 2015, 04:26:57 PM
Nah it's fine, like I said I'm willing if you are. That's why I made them Study weeks to focus on small objects. The plan is to draw it well enough from memory.

I like mortorbikes and bikini girls so I'm willing to take a stab at it, but then ther'll need to be some leniency in terms of getting the details down.



Otherwise a watch sounds like a start. I can go either way.
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on September 06, 2015, 04:33:20 PM
ok lets start with a watch like you said keep it simple for the start and see what happens.
will we use the same reference or pick our own?
something like this?

Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on September 06, 2015, 04:36:33 PM
Picking our own would be better. Less restrictive that way. I think in general even for workshops like 'Draw X anime character' people should be allowed to use several of their own references to get proper ideas of how to draw them as they like.

I'll choose my my own brand as well haha.

The grid system sounds like a good idea, but I was just concerned about the complexity. It'll be good to have a system to work with too
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on September 06, 2015, 04:38:58 PM
ok lets pick our own then, i will probably pick another one to the one i posted.

also....what grid system, did i say something cool like that i dont remember?
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on September 06, 2015, 04:51:38 PM
Oops. I mistook guidelines for gridlines.

So what do you think, Monday to next Sunday?
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on September 07, 2015, 03:37:26 AM
Sounds good sp are we doing just a copy?
or also trying to draw it from memory?
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on September 07, 2015, 03:51:14 AM
We're doing it to be able to draw it from the mind properly after making studies throughout the week. So copy, photograph, trace as much as you want. So long as in the end you're able to draw it from memory...

I'm drawing this watch. I'll make a tiny study because I'm skyping today. But I've chosen the Urwerk 1001

It is amazing.

Let's do this, suuper.

Suuper, I totally screwed up the first 3 days so I haven't started any studies at all. I hope to get stuff done today but otherwise it's going to turn out suckier than anticipated
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on September 13, 2015, 03:48:15 PM
well, i have been ill for the whole week and haven't drawn anything, let alone watches :p
plus my internet was out and i couldn't access hardly anything before it cut out again, so i havnt posted here for the whole week as well :P

do you want to try the same again for next week, so extend the deadline to next sunday?
better to have good results over a longer time than move on to something else without perfecting what we are on first :P
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on September 13, 2015, 03:53:29 PM
That's exactly what I was hoping for actually. Sorry to hear about the illness. And the internet. That's always frustrating.

And yeah let's go for it man. I know I'm up and running. My planned R&R didn't work after all. Or rather it let me find out that I really do enjoy drawing to fill up my day haha.

Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on September 13, 2015, 04:47:34 PM
awesome. i will see what i can do this week
my illness was mostly headaches caused by new solar panels in my school, the transformer (or whatever it is) they are connected to makes that insanely high pitched noise that only kids and dogs can hear, after a couple of days i basically had a permanent headache, then i caught a cold off a kid at school, which knocked me out the rest of the week :P
i did make a complaint to the school though (about the noise :P) :P
mostly better now but headaches whenever i try and think too hard, so its hard to draw since your always accessing stuff from memory, oh well should be fine soon :P

drawing for a whole day is fun, i have one of those coming up soon that i dont plan to waste :P
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on September 19, 2015, 07:35:56 PM
Well this week was bust. I did try to make a study on a side view but it didn't come to fruition. My bad. I'll attempt this workshop again next week haha... Laziness is a true bane
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on October 02, 2015, 09:58:36 AM
Okaaaay suuper, let's try this again... For a second time... To make it twice. You there man?
Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: legomaestro on October 20, 2015, 09:53:38 AM
I've finally taken a tackle at this  (http://i.imgur.com/IrYnSlM.jpg)

I watched this video and after thinking about it today I've decided to just keep this in mind: Break everything down to its simplest forms first before adding detail. At the very very least I should be able to draw the primitive 3d forms of the watch. I don't have much hope for the extra detail but hope to at least be able to draw its shape and where the watch faces stay.

Anyways suuper, if you're up for this tell me. I think we should just make studies in general rather than extending them over the week? How about the week be the deadline and one/two pages be enough for a complete study? Haha, I'm just that lazy

sorry, i died for a bit :P
i had like 6 things wrong at once which was just crazy. all mostly good now :P
when i get ill i dont have the energy to do anything, and for some reason i couldnt access MR for ages anyway, like even now it took like 3 or 4 minutes to load the reply page.
ive done a bit of drawings still ill post that on my thread, but havnt done anything for this topic yet. will try this week since its half term :P

@kaijumaestro nice work! definitely having the simple shapes in mind is a great working point, i try that as much as possible. even figure drawings can work with it :P

my memory is really bad for certain types of data, so i try and convert it into whatever data i can store the best. normally when memorizing something i have to imagine it in my head like a picture, and everything i cant remember i look at again, then repeat. just like memorizing vocabulary or times-tables.

Title: Re: Mini Study Weeks - Visual Library Workshop
Post by: suuper-san on October 26, 2015, 03:44:56 PM
i was planning to do a different watch, but i think im starting to like this one :P
i will give it a go sometime this week :P

oh lego try measuring parts , like getting the ratios of proportions, that might help you to build uyp the basic shapes better. like if one part is twice as long as another, when you draw it you wont mess up that proportion etc.

Post by: Ryan on February 18, 2016, 06:55:51 PM
Alright, so I've been thinking we should try to learn how to draw the profile of a face in a certain style. Knowing how the profile is put together will inform you of the face structure in general, and you can learn from any choices the artist has made if you're learning off a stylized drawing.

So begin with finding an image of a face in profile that you really like. It can be a painting, drawing, photo; as long as it includes the face in profile.

So the deadline will be next sunday (not this sunday). The goal is to be able to draw that face in profile with the features and hair and neck as it was/drawn originally. The long-term goal is to benefit from having learned it in the future.

This is mine

Post a drawing of your picture from memory at the end of next week. If the page number in this thread stays the same you don't need to repost the reference because they will be on the same page in this thread. If not, then post the reference again.

well, i am an idiot.
i misunderstood that to mean draw in the style, not an exact copy from memory. whoops.

here are my results, reference and from memory (i drew the faces from my imagination in the same style, not from memory which was a mistake, which is why the characters look not the same). i used additional reference which included older characters.

If I had to wait till next Wednsday it'd be too confusing, so I'd like a more regular day. Either that or Sunday.

Won't be doing anything too heavy. Just trail and error and then try to construct the face from scratch.

It was only the top right one where I tried to measure angles and stuff. I wonder if there is a way to show the cheek bones and the like with just a pen. It's proving hard to draw her likeness without being able to shade, but I'd like to also be able to break it down into simple shapes to be able to draw it from the angle that I'd like to.

I wonder if there is a way to show the cheek bones and the like with just a pen
I will let you know :P
although, i dont do much shading myself when using a pen, i just mark out the shade areas since if it was a proper drawing, i would be using other media.

It was only the top right one where I tried to measure angles and stuff. I wonder if there is a way to show the cheek bones and the like with just a pen. It's proving hard to draw her likeness without being able to shade, but I'd like to also be able to break it down into simple shapes to be able to draw it from the angle that I'd like to.

Yeah, there is.

Draw lines that follow the cheekbone plane indentation like in this. In general, you should be thinking about planes, forms. A simple extra hatch of lines or a single set of hatch lines going at the right angle is often sufficient.
