STUDIES AGAIN.......... by LeSeanThomas STUDIES AGAIN.......... by LeSeanThomas
Here's one 20 minute piece surrounded by some 15 SECOND SKETCHES. The 15 second sketches are great, because my focus is gesture, drapery and lighting. trying to knock them all out while she's constantly moving was fun and both challenging at the same time. it really is a test of patience when you pit your knowledge and skill against something like that.

Doing it also made me realize that my memory isnt as bad as it appears, haha.

still practicing!

It's like a flash back of my sessions at school, college and uni (and i've had a lot of life drawing session :phew:). I have to rate your patience on the 15secs to a minute poses cus they are challenging. But it really improves speed, movement and shape.
The progression can be really amazing once you commit to doing it ppl.
Good stuff man.

man I liKe theSe... I really like tha one where she is sitting down with her arms out. it has simple line work and still shaded with enuff detail to be real strong, plus you don't get a lot of positioning that way. KeEp it up... but not too much wE neEd thAt CaNNon FiRe ya heArd, haHa

They look pretty clean and accurate for 15 second sketches, did the one on the top right took 15 seconds as well?

yeah, its really about pencil stroke control, thickness and figuring out how many lines you need to "fool" the eye into believing more is there than it really is.

the top right one is noted as being 20-minutes.


Oh, yeah. i sketch REALLY fast. :)

"...figuring out how many lines you need to 'fool' the eyes into believing more is there than it really is.."

That's a VERY good way to put it. I feel this is especially true with comic art where the artist focuses on the economy of lines.

thanks bro, trust me, as a working illustrator, i know all too well about the luxury of a month deadline versus a 15-second deadline, haha. this stuff really does step your "freehand" game up tho. i reccomend it to every learning artist.

man, it feels sooooooooooo long, yo. every stroke and line counts. it really is baffling how "precise" you have to be with your "messiness", haha. its like trying to animate "against the clock". no planning or stage time.
