Hey guys,

Sorry I managed to let Art Class die again! Between irregular schedules, moving and whatnot, things just don't work too well. I figured I'd open up this thread though; because I'd still be more than happy to answer any questions, and provide critique or redlines. No assignments, obviously, just post whatever you need feedback on.


Sensitive people gtfo; if I have to post a critique and don't have a lot of time, it might be a little harsh. But remember; wouldn't do it if I didn't just want to see you improve!

I actually have some questions.

So i have to make this picture for my job ( yeah, im vet.. but my boss discovered i can draw ). Forensic collecting of insects. It's a copy of another picture (copyrighted) so i have little liberty.
And i put some effort into it yet...
I have discovered my next nemesis - perspective. Damn its difficult!



So this picture goes, but i would still like some critique to improve...

Also how do you choose what will your background be?

@Krava: Well, its rly hard to say, cuz I dun rly know wt u're trying to draw there exactly :P. But I'm pretty sure it could use a little more dynamic of a background.

BTW: Which of these two do you guys prefer? (I am doing this for an English assignment, hence, the sub-heading below.)

The bottom one is better in my opinion.  But I'd still say you need to change the font...

Wouldn't a better spot for these questions be in Visual Arts?

Also how do you choose what will your background be?

If you're having trouble making it in perspective, start from the basics: The skeleton. Then expand on it. Basically; the more you simplify it, the easier it is to put it in a correct perspective. As a quick reference, I whipped this up; http://www.vrt-designs.com/stuff/artclass/persp.png

Anon; I'm not much a fan of either of those. They're hard to read, the font choice seems off.. I'm just not entirely sure what you're trying to say with it.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

It's for a literary assignment so ofc the subheading must be a bit classy. I know that the bottom one is kind of hard to look at the streaks. But I'm pretty sure if enlarged you get a better view of it.

*Raises hand* I can't draw a stick figure. Can I join anyway entirely for the sake of 1. supporting your efforts (I've always had an admiration for the arts) and 2. improving my artsy abilities? or would my crudely done, poorly scanned pencil sketches muddy up the threads too much / there would be a better way for me to learn how to draw? :P

Oh, I won't be. I just really hope that you realize that I am absolutely, 100% serious when I say that I can not draw a stick figure.
