5 Objects, 5 References Workshop
« on: August 24, 2017, 09:54:59 PM »

Draw 5 every day objects from your own memory, then redraw them using references

The mangaka must decide between two things: Speed and quality, and that is a question that is so secondary to the important story elements and reception of the audience, that you're more often than not given no chance to spend time thinking about the problem. What do you do?

Reference every single angle, every single image, or work with what you have in mind?

Are you someone who works better with intuition, or structure?

Here is a chance to test this out.

1. Draw every day objects from memory, and then redraw them one by one using references.

2. Participation is encouraged in increments. I.e completing 5 objects and 5 references is enough for you to have completed the topic forever. (This is because your level of study of your 'every day object' has infinite possibilities of possible things to learn)

3. Be explicit with your answer to the question (reference vs. intuition) and please ask about your weaknesses, and mention them. It's helpful to the forum to know everything about your process, which is the hidden reason behind this workshop.
