    /Pagedown's Sketchbook/

    Welcome!

    Hello!
    I have always loved art and just recently decided to get serious. I admit ive been lurking these forums for a while until recently i chose to seriously peruse art as a hobby. I am 20 years old and live in toronto with my parents while attending university. My artistic heros are, spart, vylle, hull, church, samwise, and...

    CnC are welcome!

    Recently got a tablet, no scanner for pencil works though, maybe someday when im done eating ketchup on bread.
    Here we go!

    Just keep drawing from life and reference. Your images aren't quite 'right' to me, but they seem fairly solid and more drawing can only help.

    Do you have any Loomis (my favourite) or bridgeman books. You can find old loomis pdf's online for free. Hunt them down, I think has ways of creating guides and structure would greatly strengthen your work.

    No sir, never read anything from Andrew Loomis or George B. Bridgman. Which book do you recommend from the Loomis series?
    i only wish i could somehow haul my comp to model sessions lol. Most of these digital sketches are from memory.

    Ignore the Loomis cartooning books (a very dated and simplistic style) and just get the anatomy book and maybe the illustration one (lots of theories about composition, layout etc - good to see other peoples ideas).

    ooh, my favorite so far is the quick line sketch. i like the muted colors. watch the legs though, the right leg seems to be a lot thicker than the left, even if it is being foreshorted. awesome pose with the legs to practice with, by the way
    anyway, looking at the earlier cgs, i'd suggest practicing some more flow in your lines instead of making several short strokes to find the form. And do some more pencil studies before playing around too much with digital.
    keep updating!

    Tytseng: Holy crap, I can’t believe that I missed the fatness of the legs, and I just realized that the right shoe is pointing in the wrong direction lawl. Thanks for the critique man.

    Some analog sketches
    Model drawings are done with 15-20min timer with Kimon Nicolaides - The Natural Way to Draw theory of feeling the form, and touching the model as you draw. Also there is one 10min blind contour, 10min water color modeling, and some cross hatching of drapery.

    Hey, great start so far. Your sketches defintiely have character, and though the porportions aren't spot on yet, they're certainly in the right direction. In the first couple, I thought the torsoes were a little long, and I wanted to say that with the first chick, the sketch in brown with tablet, when lying down her breasts should flatten a little. Just a thought.

    Keep it up!

    Hey, im liking these recent studies, they should help your digital painting skills a fair bit. I find it interesting the way you sketch, that overlapping circular motion really captures the shape of the figure...especially on the Larger life class models. Good work , keep at it and i shall keep checking.

    Posts 15 and 16 are great. That chick really went through a transformation from one stage to the next. I'm glad you fixed whatever was up with her nose. And how did you do the pattern on her dress, is I may ask. Are those individual brush daps on another layer? The way you build skin tone as in post 16 is awesome. It reminds me of seeing a portrait modelled in clay, smuding around the planes of the form to get the right volume.

    Keep it up, dude. This stuff is really inspiring ;D

    Thank you for the support Dierat. I made the pattern in separate window and turned it into a custom brush in photoshop, and just played with strokes to reveal her body form. It worked for the most part, turned out ok.

    gears: thanks bro!

    Im have so many problems with color picking when im painting, whats worse is that i can't seem to flatten the image to simplify it with my eyes. The only analog painting ive ever done is with water colors, and not so much of it. I scrapped so many crap digital paintings. i dont know i can't seem to grasp it, im really desperate for some direction for digital painting in photoshop...feel really lost.

    Well anyway here are some color and continuing anatomy studies.

    lol Cute color studies ;D It's nice that you're practicing reflected color on those guys, but try to incorporate color into your shadows as well. An orange sphere, according to color theory, should have blue in the core shadow area that neutralizes the orange and produces a grey/brown shadow effect. Same with the blue and green slabs. I would suggest taking a few days to practice color from observation in still-lifes or models (self-portraits if you can't get a poser ;D). And it can help to put down the tablet and practice in pastels or colored pencil now and then. That isolates the issue so you're only practicing *color* and not struggling with color *and* photoshop simultaneously. (Unless you're more comefortable with photoshop than pastels, that is ;D)

    Keep it up, duder! It's nice to see consistent updates

    Keep up the Hogarth studies, they will definitely help you in the long run. I see alot of digi work but what i think is more important for you right now is to keep moving your pencil that means anatomy and value studies. You really have the right idea with Hogarth keep up the good work.

    I feel really guilty about not posting in a while. My isp suspended my internet service for about three weeks due to suspicious activity on my end of the line. And with no internet, it kind makes you realize how you've taken advantage of the service. Apart from going to the library like a bum to use the crappy internet stations, it was nice breath of fresh air to sever my self from the computer and do things that require a little more muscle activity.

    Well it seems that everyone is strongly encouraging me to keep moving my pencil and lessen the wacom doodles. So i guess these last two sketches i did three weeks ago will be the last of my wacom work. Kind of feels like a step backward though because the whole idea was to do stuff like sparth, vyle, or hull (yea im a loser...lol) some day.

    Kind of depressing as well now that school has started i wont have much time to focus on my SB anymore. But if anything i got from reading these forums, it has to be that one should steer away from discouragement and stay positive, constantly better yourself, and never let arrogance take hold.

    So here is the latest of my digi sketches. Came across bumskees forum
