A Problem Of Great Porporation

2:17 AM, Saturday October 15th 2022

Heyo! today i was wondering do the porporations affect the exercise drawing's quality as a drawabox exercise like if you slapped your lesson homework into critique it would be critisized for those problems or would it be fine as long its spatially consistent and tight? i haven't reached lesson 5 but i would not be surprised if this was more prominent with that lesson

Proportions only really matter at lesson 6 and 7, in the case of lesson 5 you should focus more on making the construction as solid as possible. That way even if you drew the head a little too big or the body a little smaller etc. it will still look fine as long as it's been constructed properly. If you focus too much on proportions you will not get the same value from the exercise as you would be too worried trying to make it look good.

ahhh that makes sense i was worried that if my drawing weren't porporationally (hoping i spelled that correct) accurate it would damage the exercise's quality it's good to know what to focus on instead rather than worrying about the excess stuff thanks!

The Art of Brom

The Art of Brom

Here we're getting into the subjective - Gerald Brom is one of my favourite artists (and a pretty fantastic novelist!). That said, if I recommended art books just for the beautiful images contained therein, my list of recommendations would be miles long.

The reason this book is close to my heart is because of its introduction, where Brom goes explains in detail just how he went from being an army brat to one of the most highly respected dark fantasy artists in the world today. I believe that one's work is flavoured by their life's experiences, and discovering the roots from which other artists hail can help give one perspective on their own beginnings, and perhaps their eventual destination as well.
