Roman Vinogradov's Sketches & Studies.

Postby devilfish_one » Fri May 06, 2016 8:53 am

Hi, my name is Roman Vinogradov. For now, I’m 21 years old guy which struggling with art fundamentals and sometimes doing pieces for portfolio. Recently my focus mostly on the drawing basics, like lineart and perspective. I really appreciate critique, so, feel free to say all you want about my stuff. Hm, That's all.

And here few gesture drawings, for start.

Damn, a lot of skilled and purposeful guys in the sketchbooks. It's kinda motivating thing.
Here is another bunch of gestures. This time I tried to deal with timer, but results are not so good. I still need a loooooot of practice.

Welcome to permanoobs!

You have some really nice gestures here, they're very educational. Looking forward to seeing more work from you.

Oh my gosh your gestures. I'm in awe. They look so effortless. Just wondering how long it took you to get a hang of gestures like you're doing?
Sidenote, your style and skill is so calarts worthy. :O

Looks pretty good to me, nice flow and very calculated, almost no unnecessary strokes.

You say that you don't like the results. I'm curious, where do you see the biggest mistakes?

@Enydimon: Hey, thank you for hospitality and good words, man! I'll try to upload new stuff more regular.

@LucyHe: Around one year and three thousand of one minute sketches with simple ballpoint pen. But it's deliberate practice, I have some background, it's not really about gesture drawing, but, anyway, helpful. And not really one year, I just started past May, but the last six month I wasn't drawing almost anything, at least related to gesture drawing. In addition, practice of just simple circles and lines been very helpful for me too. Yeah, this is very vague recommendation, but gestures also require complex skills and knowledge, that's why I really like this exercise. And thank you very much, your words about the Calarts is great motivation for me.

@crowbit: Thanks, man. I want myself, but haven't much time for it :(

@Imbalantus: Thank you, Sir. Exactly, it's ALMOST unnecessary strokes. Also it's not satisfying results with simplification of forms, expression of motion, proportions and execution time. Especially it's struggle between right proportions and feel of motion, bold work with this. Yeah, it's already kind of good, but I guess I can achieve more decent results. It's not about mistakes, but rather attractiveness and beauty.


On past five days I've been busy and, at same time, I been lazy, so here not much, but I'm still drawing something everyday. Because lack of sleep I noticed that the gestures go better when I'm sleepy and tired, cuz I'm not controlling myself and thinking too much. Process get more intuitive.

Gestures from two past days. I was not so productive on this week but I was drawing everyday (big deal for me, lol). Also I kinda get in shape, started drawing more confident. So, I just go ahead.

15-20 minutes thumbnails. Sort of LearnSquared stuff.
Shitty results, but now I know which knowledge and skills need more attention.

I still try to deal with thumbnails or rather with the storytelling, composition, tone, design principles, detalization and photoshop tools. And plus time limits. It's hard, but really really interesting.

Wow, really insightful exercise. Short time limit are pushing to more deep understanding of brush work principles.

Really nice thumbnails and a good idea as well. I should add that to my studies.

Bunch of thumbnails. Again. Today here is not so experimental things, in technical sense, now I try to diversify my compositional language and merge knowledge from whole week.

Hard to find energy for drawing when you have troubles with daily regimen :(
In few past days, I'm did just this quick portrait for exploring brushwork techniques and applying new knowledge about subject.

In this month I'm trying to deal with portraits and also experimenting with color and brushwork.

Awesome start I'd say. That latest portrait come our real nice especially good work on getting a good mix of sharpness and loseness. The only thing that bugs me a little is the faintness of the eyes. It might be a stylistic choice but since eyesockets are basically holes in our skull you'd expect some more darkness. Also with the pupils and the fact that she's wearing make up. Now it looks like someone put some realistic eye stickers on her face.

I really love that pink poster portrait though. No complains here :D

Nice value studies! I think the comp studies could use more contrast, that could just be me though.

toshi13go: Hi, Thanks! Based on my experience good way to succeed at gesture drawings:
1. Start with theory, like Glenn Vilppu, Ryan Woodward, Michael Mattesi, Proko.
2. Then you're copying and repeating what you see in lessons. Slowly and mindfully.
3. Start with your own gestures based on acquired knowledge. Without timer, until you understand all conceptions.
4. You go to site, like quickposes, and start to draw 60sec gestures on daily basis. There just practice. You need it to achive almost mechanical skills. You see - you draw. See - draw. Except of things which you learned in previous steps, you need to keep in mind "line economy" conception.
5. When you become familiar with technical part you pick more dynamic and complicated references and start experiments with styles and tools in purposes of more pleasant look and more clear expression of motion. At this step you might to return to approach from Step 1-3 - dive into theory, no time restrictions, understand subject first.

And yeah, most important things: This is not figure drawing, nor constructive drawing. Feel the flow and motion. Think about what is figure doing. You're need to focusing on dynamic of structure instead of structure itself.
Gesture is more about mindset than skillset.

Zipfelzeus: Few thoughts about contrast: In real life white light is brighter than our white color in PS and black color (areas with no lighting ) is darker than default black color on screen, so tonal scale is shifting towards black part and the pure white is staying in reserve only for highlights. But balance of these things is another great topic and I'm new to this, so I still try to figure out this. Anyway, you're right - it's look strange, exactly like a sticker. So, in further works, I will try to pay more attention to clear description of form. Thank you.

KennyT: Yeah, contrast is really subjective thing, so I'm just keep experimenting with. Thank you.


Practice of portrait and head drawing from 2-12 june and few from 24-25 april:

Peninsula: Thanks.

So, time to return on my favorite forum.
Cactus, from my windowsill, blossomed few days ago and I did quick sketch. That dude even wilted while I was drawing. Sad, last time it bloomed over two years ago.
