So I made it a group on DA. Feel free to poke around. I still need to figure some stuff out putting it together, and I always love suggestions. oodlesodoodles.deviantart.com/
So hey, does anyone know of tutorial/lesson groups that might exist on DA or similar kinds of blogs? I had stumbled across a few a while back, but I can't seem to find them anymore.
I've been considering setting up one for myself and perhaps a small group of people who'd be interested. It wouldn't really be strict "lessons". Rather that each week someone else might suggest a theme/premise to practice on. Preferably something that would take maybe 2-3 hours at most, but aimed more at 30 minutes to an hour. Stuff that could make you work outside of your comfort zone, but isn't too demanding. Heck, we could even just assign themes to a random number generator and see what happens. :b
They could be simple or specific....
Do an hour of gesture drawing.
Sketch 5 different animals.
Experiment with complimentary colors.
Draw your favorite character doing their least favorite activity.
*inserts link to activity/tutorial* Try this out!
Paint some flowers/fauna.
Draw a room inside your house.
etc, etc, etc.
Even if there isn't a particular group that's interested, I came up with a simple excel file to give myself little challenges/reminders to try stuff. Mostly for the sake of example at the time being: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…
And mostly unrelated my photoshop has acted up with dreaded brush lag again. I really need to find a way to fix that... Or just a new computer. >.<
