    Mydrako's Sketchbook - On a Journey towards Mastery of the craft...

    Attachment 840334

    //New Intro ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Well now I am still trying to improve my skills so that I can be good enough to support myself with it. Now working in a 3d company which isnt so bad either. Kinda trying to constantly switch between left brain in the day and right brain at night when I practice my drawing.... *brain freeze*... Anyway, on i go...

    //Old Intro ----------------------------------------------------------------
    After reading the most inspiring sketchbook thread that span almost 5 years and 61 pages (and still increasing), I decide to start my own sketchbook to motivate myself to continue drawing and improving my skills. Here goes...

    nice man. props to your start. Start drawing daily and it will become habit....I find myself rarely without a pencil on my ear and a sketchbook in my hand. Good studies for your first post. Hope to see more

    My only suggestion is to look at a lot of the SB's here and perhaps crit on as many as you can. While commenting you can learn about a lot of things you like and a lot you don't. Hope to see you around. lats

    Leper: Thanks !! I am also just beginning to learn to draw in a realistic way. Art lessons in school never teach it properly Grrrrr... You should try watching vilppu's video. That guy is sooo good... I hope I can one day reach his level of control. I think the best way to improve is to start a sketchbook urself !! Lets learn together

    Started to read Nicolaides' Book on drawing too. So here is teh gesture drawing exercise I did. I reference model from the photosets in characterdesigns.com. Great references if you can afford a anatomy book or dont have a model available.

    Attachment 197034

    Did a portrait in pencil today... Long time since i do a portrait. Feel kind of unfamiliar and exhausting after I complete it. The proportion end up slightly off.

    Runaway i do have ur msn haaa... so rare to find a sg here... anyway the inspiring thread is http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=870 Hope you will be also inspired to start a sketchbook !!

    Nistarn Thanks for the compliment. My first digital portrait glad it turn out okie. Still kind of struggling with color and value.. but will paint more to improve....

    Here I tried to do my first speed painting (not very speedy imho lol) based on the dsg topic: Creature: BIG, QUADROPEDAL, GAUZE-WRAPPED, UNDEAD, ALIEN MUMMY
    I feel it didnt turn out that well. The overall values are not very exciting imo. I stop applying the color after i am quite disgusted by the poor values..lolz.. Shall do more speed painting to improve my value and composition..
