Nicolaides stuff so far, photographed poorly and somewhat rescued by filters:




If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

today's batch of studies:

There is a new type of exercise in there, called "weight" exercise. I had heard of gesture, contour, blind contour and cross contour before starting to read Nicolaides but I had never heard of the "weight" exercise before.

"weight" exercise description inside spoiler:
He describes it (in my own highly condensed words) as modelling the figure in the paper space (and imaginary paper space, think 3D) like a lump of clay, handling the pigment emitter (he recommended lithography crayon which I don't have, so I tried charcoal first which is way too dark and then decided to use the same 3B graphite pencil as for everything else so far but working with the long side of the graphite instead of the pointy tip and with careful variation of pressure) like something that spawns "weight" into a hollow imaginary volume(of the observed object/figure), filling out the masses from the inside, working from center to surface, imagining going into and out of depth as well as moving up, down, left, right (so it's all about thinking volume, mass, weight, NOT silhoutte or contour or surface or gesture) and going from light to dark, putting darkness where one feels the most weight.

After doing the "weight" exercises, I read the exercise description again: pretty sure I practiced them a bit wrong, putting darkness not just where I felt "weight" but also where I presumed "tension".

Been super busy with school and all..
so I had some time to post some pictures and such-

trying to practice lips right now as I want to be able to draw them with those wrinkles that lips have.


sketches also of designs for characters. (Mystery Skulls of course.)

Oh yeah! I've also been reading Nicolades The natural way to draw! I really need to catch back up on my studies from that book :)
I do have some sketches from some of the exercises you guys have done-

really cool im not the only one studying this book as well!
