Anthis' Sketchplace! studiescreaturescharactersspeeds and stuff
Time for a sketchbook after quite some lurking.
I enjoy drawing and I'm very keen on improving, so I'll update this thread with new artwork as often as possible. I do not attend to an art school, but I'm hoping I'm on the right track with practicing.
I'll take any criticism, do not hesitate if you think you can help me improve!
Nice studies - I feel that you have a strong sense of anatomy here. I suggest you try doing overlays using tracing paper to strengthen your anatomy further. For example create the bones in a separate layer on top of the figure drawing.
softocean; Thanks, seems like good advice. Tried it a little already. Seems logical to learn the underlying structure if you want to know the shapes and such. Ellingsworth; Yap, really want to tackle anatomy. Or at least the basics. I really have to work for clean drawings though, they do tend to get messy StarbonesCoffin; I've heard of Loomis but I don't have it. I'm using anatomy drawing school for reference mainly. Blagsquid; Thanks! Well, I do need reference, can't do this from head (yet.. ). I switch between trying from head and using ref, hoping to see improvement that way. More finished stuff will come later I think, I'm just in the anatomy 'mood' for now, plus I think I need it. Already working on some digital stuff anyways.
Here's new stuff; 50 quick poses for the Spartan Training Camp again.
And those damn hands... the ones with bones are from ref, the others are my own left hand. They truly are a pain. Might try it again later on, don't feel I got the hang of it.
Whyatt Trash; Yea, I mainly wanted to practice my pencilwork in general, and practice anatomy. But yep, original work on it's way! And thank you.
3 digital sketches, topics from the daily sketch group.
And foot studies for the spartan training from last week. I won't be posting the 50 figures because it takes ages to load. Here's the link though;
nice studies. in your arms you use parallel curves. try to do offset curves instead to get a more interest and natural form.
the last painting is a little dirt and dark.i think there is too much black in there.
Update! I'm sloppy with scanning and posting, but I do draw ;|
From top to bottom;
Pencil studies done for the Spartan Trainings (under community activities), and a couple of Daily Sketch Group topics;
