Hey guys! Courtney here! Okay, if you’re like me at all, then foreshortening is something you absolutely hate to even THINK about attempting. I have asked for advice everywhere, and each person I’ve asked has given me a different technique that really confused me. I was browsing youtube and found this method (also there is a bonus tip showing how to draw arms and legs!). It’s so much easier than just eyeballing it (which I have tried [and failed at] doing).
The links below show other methods of how to use forshortening to create the effects that you want, more than just limbs flying in your face (but seriously, who doesn’t love a good flying fist into the audience?)
I hope you enjoy! And don’t forget: practice makes perfect, and even as tedious and tiresome as it may get, you’ll keep getting better…and better…until you’re even more freaking awesome than you already are!!
The coil technique has helped me a lot recently.
Specifically, super heroes (X-Men have highest chance of happening), fantasy characters that have picture reference (no, don’t send me a link to a written description from a book, I wanna be lazy), or your OC’s (provide ref).
Can’t guarantee how many (if any) I’ll do, but it’s something to keep me busy with Sketchbet.
Finished pieces will be posted on my super cool art blog.
"Rarely have I seen the revival of a film franchise stir so much fervor as Star Wars, among hot young filmmakers who grew up loving George Lucas’ original film trilogy.
In a bombshell move, I’m told that Lucasfilm is making a deal with Looper writer-director Rian Johnson to write and direct Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX. Essentially, that means that the intention is for Johnson to take the baton from JJ Abrams, who has gotten the space franchise off the ground and is right now helming Episode VII.
I don’t know too much more at this point, but it is in keeping with Disney and Lucasfilm’s strategy of entrusting the venerable franchise to the best and brightest writers and directors, including the spinoff films that are being directed by Chronicle‘s Josh Trank and Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards.” (via deadline)
Well, he wrote and directed Brick,The Brothers Bloom and Looper, all of which I loved and also directed episodes from Terriers and Breaking Bad (also on my favorite tv series list) So I am quite hopeful of these movies.
His only comment so far:
I am so excited about this you guys! I love Rian Johnson!
ohmy fuck you guys!!!
I haven’t seen his others but Brick was exceptional.
I have seen his others outside of “Brick” and he’s one of the best directors working today. And the best part is, he’s only getting started.
