Revisiting drawing basics via Mark Kistler "You Can Draw in 30 Days".
Doing lessons on paper and in Krita w/Intuos tablet. Krita skills — well — I'll get there.
Lesson 1: Sphere
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 4: The Cube
Sidetracked because Life, but still generally #drawing. Don't want to forget this project though!
Krita part will be inconsistent, but I'll see what I can do.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 6: Stacking Tables.
#drawing revelation that hatching can be like scratchy stippling. Doesn't need to be uniform.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 7: Advanced-Level Cubes
#drawing extras include fun with an odd light direction, and adventures in pen shading techniques (sort of a crackly stipple/hatch).
(posted to twitter earlier, but h.t is the real thread so posting here now that it's back up)
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 8: cool koalas.
#drawing extras include marker color (maybe better on different paper), and a subject change because PEOPLE MUST BE WARNED
This #drawing will probably take a bit. Plus, I started the pen early because the pencil details were already smudging.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 11: Advanced Cylinders.
Loaded into Procreate to add color to the #drawing, and deliberately went sloppy with that stage. Sloppy made me itch but it was just too fussy.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 12: Constructing With Cubes.
After #drawing all the extras last time, I went with pencil and a constraint: no erasing.
Kistler 30 Days, Lesson 13: Advanced-Level Houses.
#drawing includes Phil and Dixie shoutout for other olds.
The lesson 13 #drawing, after importing and coloring in Sketchbook Mobile.
Started a fresh thread for this so the toot -> tweet pipeline started working again.
You'd make for a great monster manual illustrator
@Bronco That would be awesome.
Going through these lesson books so I can get used to the idea of assigned work & commissions, rather than whatever pops up in my head.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
