After participating in the Splatoon Global Testfire with my son, I thought it would be fun to try my hand at Nintendo's Splatoon contest.
Feet, feet, and more feet! A sample of the numerous feet drawn over the last two months of the year.
After much study, the legs are complete. There are a crazy number of muscles throughout the leg so a lot of effort was placed on anatomy and muscle structure. The feet are all that remain as I close out this full year of drawing. I can almost see the finish line!
A very small sampling of the many hands that were drawn over the months of July and August. I will be using the remainder of the year to focus on the legs and feet.
The months of May and June were spent studying the arms. A lot of time was spent on the anatomy of the arm and I can now easily tell you were your Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus is located!
The second month of anatomy studies focusing on the torso is completed. Onto the arms.
Above are a few of the different torso studies of the figure I've done for the month of March.
I'm happy to say that the small sampling of images above are a result of drawing every day for the first two months of the year. January and February were spent focusing on the head, neck, and facial features. A big thanks goes out to an extremely talented artist and teacher, Stan Prokopenko over at Proko.com. He's got some really great videos on the head and facial features that are definitely worth a look.
A few gestures done at the beginning of the month at my local drawing and painting meetup. Worked with colored pencils, graphite, and a Sharpie Brush Tip marker.
Figure study done with a Wacom and Photoshop in 4 - 6 hours. My final drawing for 2012.
A portrait, a building, and a couple of random figure studies for the end of October and all of November.
