When something doesn’t look right, but you can’t figure out why, make a copy of your layer and try some of these tricks.  Staring too long at a piece without breaks is often where I “kill” a piece and lose scope of the work as a whole.  Thanks to letsplaygods for the supersaturate trick.

I already flip and value check often. Though those other things seem like pretty niffty tricks to keep in mind when i’m spending more than 4 hours straight on a piece//working on something from start to finish.

Also for the love of god remember to zoom out. I’ve had so many awful moments of “this is lookin’ greaFFFFFUUUUUUUU”

I find this awesome and I thought Calyps might find this useful in his work.

Awesome!

Many thanks to Adelruna for sending me links to these Eastern and Middle-Eastern historical and semi-historical battle attire. I posted several and have set two or three aside for future use in the main blog. Really cool stuff.

Tuesday Tips - Life Drawing Exercise: CONTOUR LINEOne of the most straight forward tip I have about Life Drawing. It kind of goes against what most life drawing instructors will tell you. The first thing you’ll hear is “Draw from the inside.” A contour line on a figure drawing is about the most superficial way to approach it BUT, it will help you tremendously at finding a clear silhouette. By the way, no one says you can’t slightly alter the silhouette you are looking at. If there’s a way to make it clearer or make a better statement, go for it. Drawing is about making decisions, not just copying what you’re seeing. The same way other techniques will help understand how the body functions, using a contour line as an exercise will help you find proportions, angles of the body and general appeal in your posing.Normand
