Our beloved fanart mod, HanSolo29, has graciously allowed me to start the fanart class again, so here we go: [hr] This thread will be setup kinda like an art class. Every two weeks I will post a couple of photographs/images to use as a reference for sketching, drawing, painting, whatever. These images will be Star Wars-related (this is a Star Wars board, after all). The point being to draw what you see, as if you were in a life drawing class. The medium you work in is entirely up to you, the artist. I encourage everyone to post their work here in this thread for a critique and thorough feedback. This thread is aimed at helping each and every artist, regardless of skill level, improve. So, expect harsher critiques than what you would find elsewhere on the boards. And please remember, they are about the work itself - not the artist. And just like a real art class, each submission must be posted by a certain due date. After which, the reference images for that time period will be taken down and new ones will be put up. Please don't stress too much over this, just like everything else here, it is meant to be fun! [hr] Assignment One: Forced Perspective. Due Date: Extended to Sunday, April 27th! Seeing as how I've never done anything like this before, I decided to do something that I have difficulty drawing, that being forced perspective [image=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/6/63/Mara-sacrifice.jpg] [image=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/7/7e/N1_fighter.jpg] [image=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/4/48/Jainanjo.jpg] Depending on who/what you like to draw, you may do any or all of these. A good way to go about drawing the figure in any one of these positions is to start out in a loose gesture drawing. They may end up looking like a stick figure at first, but this will help you to establish the figure. Once you get the proportions and the position correct, you can then go back in and start adding details. Like always, you are free to use any medium or style necessary. Remember, the key goal here is to have fun. If there's any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. . . someone else (jk, you can ask me, and any suggestions are appreciated.) any suggestions for the next assignment?
