It’s a fifteen-minute video.
I added some new cool free artist’s resources to the Practice Drawing This website: parametric 3D models designed for drawing practice!Stacked Cubes The ‘Stacked Cubes’ page stacks cubes into arbitrary directions. Think of them as Tetris-like blocks.
I got the idea for this one while doing Wouter Tulp’s amazing new Schoolism course, Fundamentals of Expressive Character Design. It reminds me of Marshall Vandruff’s Bridgman course which he posted for free on YouTube, which also focuses on 2D shape, 3D form, and gesture to let the character pose tell a story. Wouter Tulp’s approach leads to very dynamic, more cartoon-style results.
But I digress.
You can see my practice drawings at the beginning of this article.
The page allows you to rotate, pan, and zoom the model or generate a new random configuration of blocks.
Next week, I will share the parametric model that uses two blocks to represent the chest and the hips, orienting them in various ways.
But you can see a sneak preview here:
You can use these models for free in your browser, even on your mobile devices.
Here are some tips if you start practicing using these:
That’s it for this week. I hope you'll enjoy drawing these! And as mentioned, there are other 3D models to draw from too.
