the rest of my week 1 practice drawings
This is a page with more or less proportional stick figures in various positions and movements.
This silhouette practice is sort of fanart. I had Nightwing jumping around in Gotham in mind (or maybe Blüdhaven, what with the lack of gargoyles). I did the pencil drawing and then inked it in GIMP and added a fire escape and roof background that's vaguely based on a simplified, inked version of two combined photos:
Finally I tried the texture practice, taking a ball and trying to make it look like different materials, but with pre-inking in mind, i.e. they are supposed to work as b/w rendering. The success varied:
(As for what the materials were supposed to be, the first column, top to bottom: some kind of shiny chrome, wood (that really sucked), rough stone, furry (I was kind of thinking of Tribbles), and grungy metal; the second column: some kind of pebble structure (I was thinking of the Thing, to be honest), something moldy, transparent glass, old leather, smooth but cracked stone; and in the third column: something soft and woolly, and I'm actually not sure what the last was supposed to be, I wanted to make it look like felt or some kind of textile, but well--)
Again, concrit is very welcome.
