    /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.

    Good set of updates. A few of the studies have some very nice form to them.
    Keep posting.

    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!
