Superhero sketches

Post by Threshold » Wed Jan 16, 2008 7:00 pm

I have these in my Moleskine - I've not posted much in a while, but I'm still drawing. I have a painting class now that takes up a lot of time, but I figured I'd dump these while I have the time.

Oh, by the way - has anyone noticed that anatomy issues always seem to pop out more when the drawing's been scanned? I've been flipping drawings upside down for years, but there's something about a computer screen that makes me notice "that head's too big," so much faster.

I think it might be just seeing the image in a different context that does it. Although sometimes scanners do actually distort artwork. Mine scrunches everything down vertically by slightly less than half a millimeter every time I scan something in . . . invisible to everyone but me but it subconsciously bugged the hell out of me until I realized what was happening and did some print-rescan trials :P

I like the Daredevil one, cool pose.

Half a millimeter? :shock: that's not even a remotely perceptible difference!
I think you're right about context. There's just no other way to account for it.

I may be painting some of these later.

in addition to context...

I bet you're drawing on a flat table. You're drawing the picture in perspective rather than being right on top of it and seeing it totally perpendicular to your eyes. I've noticed this with my own stuff before in the past.

Ah. Good call. Drawing at the desk. My secret to surviving six art history lectures a week. Well, I guess I just keep flipping the page and looking at it from farther away.
