@skittlefuck:
Wow, great ambience.. kind of Out Of This World / Flashback-ish

Long drapery study is the second Nicolaides exercise in which clarity is a primary goal, and the first one in which erasing is permitted:

This is 5 hours of work (due to a mistake; it should be done in multiple 2-hour sessions, but the latest one got mixed up with Quick Drapery Study)
TBH, I also have some doubts about exactly what the method is supposed to be;
I am setting the value in accordance with global depth, roughly speaking, but in the example, some features are rendered as if the value should be set according to *local* depth. But only *some* features are rendered in a way that clearly references local depth. There is yet another possible interpretation where the dark value simply should be assigned to those areas that are relatively flat. In many cases, comparing the assigned value could be explained by more than one of the possible interpretations.

In conclusion: The diagrams and drawing supposed to illustrate this exercise are simply too unclear, and the verbal explanation fails to resolve this ambiguity.

I did a dcomp overview page like 0xDB tends to do. Sort of messy.

In some of these I construct myself into the picture, which tends to slow my drawing down but IMO is good practice -- gives you lots of human/object proportion reference points that always remain available to you

The above summary ends at 2017-01-22. I have scanned the following ones but didn't bother remaking the montage, so I just picked out the following as one I particularly liked:


Am continuing to intentionally draw-through whenever it would clarify the proportions of the objects involved. Also minimizing characterizing details with same intent -- "only include if it illustrates proportions vs objects"



130 other drawings from same period were scanned, after discarding 297

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