Thread: Stu's Sketchbook
August 28th, 2007 #1
Please feel free to comment/crit, your ideas are more than appreciated! Feedback is lovely! I may not be able to reply immediately - making a living out of this stuff is freakin difficult, and time is non-existent. And motivation what!
Some of the stuff you dudes are cranking out is sweet, groove on - I'll endeavor to leave comments.....
Sketches of my myself, brothers and sisters from earlier this year - myself being in the lower left panel.
A piece done early 2006 for uni - this was a design to be mounted on a constantina slightly larger than average head height, and six panels across. As it turns out, I completely stuffed up the project, but ended up with a decent image which is nice.

Living under a rock is good. I like my rock.
Haven't posted in ages....various pages from a few sketchbooks lying around.

I really like that commissioned tiger piece. Cool dune buggy in the last post, too.
Keep posting when you've got time

Cheers iMaiM, I have found some time! Going to check out your threads properly as soon as I can too, your work is sweet dude...
Yep, pretty happy with the dune buggy, as I get in to concept work I'd like to be experimenting with heaps of vehicle design which'll be lovely. I may use that tiger piece for something too.....depends on what crops up I guess.
Got me a couple of recent sketches, enjoy - more to come!

heyy man those last sketches are really going somewhere i'd like to see you clean up your lines a little more, maybe hatch a little more consistantly as opposed to scribbling like a mad man also, keep in mind the figure underneath the clothes. constantly think to yourself, "does her shoulder read as if it connects to her body if the sleeve looks like this?" or "do his legs bend in the right place even though he's got super-baggy jeans on?" can be a very important thing. do you do any prelim sketching to find the figure's silhouette before you get too involved in a drawing or what?

anatomy study, or facial structure - plenty more practice ahead of me.... also a snake logo for a business called boa construction which I completed a couple of weeks ago. Very happy with this result - seen here before it has been placed onto a business card.
stoph; Cheers for your feed back man, yes I do need to clean up line work more and practice hatching - I tend to draw really quickly and so lose clarity with the haphazard strokes. I'm hoping to be able to combine the energetic strokes with tight form which I guess will slowly come together with time. For the last couple of pieces, no I didn't use prelim sketches, but went straight to pen except for a rough pencil outline with basic proportions of the bodies. Using the figures silhouette may be a good one to try....

Hey man good sketches man. I am not really good at drawing cars and such any reference material or pointer's would be gratefully appreciated.

A variety of sketches and studies, the figure studies are from early 2006 and the skeletons were created around April this year I think(?) Kindof fuzzy... Heaps more to come!

!Paintings - have a squiz
These are a variety of pieces created earlier this year, as well as a couple of more recent works. All with acrylics primarily - and the dude with the megaphone has been painted over corrugated cardboard which was an experiment. People seem to like the different effect so maybe I should try some more work like this.... The first piece is a self portrait, the next three are editorial pieces and the last one was just stuffing around. Good times!

the hoven of beet
Hey guys, some recent sketches as the first three, a lizard from a couple of years ago I think, and a painting for a uni project earlier this year.
Yeah, you're right Mr Ziersche - I've been bouncing around with a few different approaches and styles - like I said in the blog I think I'll be concentrating on pen and inks from now on. There's not a huge number of pieces like that from me yet posted here, but as its a method that comes to me naturally I think you should see more of this stuff appearing soon.. If I can stay motivated of course. The painting below is an example of the approach - this one was a quick five minute job
Cheers Eponine, slowly slowly getting the hang of faces.......

The bowiemiester (with a demented eye) plus some others... these are fairly old, going back to early 2006 - feb 2007 I think. I do have a number of recent sketchworks but haven't the time to scan and upload them at the moment which is a right bum.

hey stu.keep up the paintings! they're looking good! i will keep on lookin
Sorry for my English.

i like your stuff eventho i think it would be better to do more life drawings because with life drawings you learn so many things all in one, how to draw from life, the human form, and shading
have any time, would be very happy if you visited my sketchbook

Ohhhh, much practice ahead.... many people are on my case to do more lifedrawing/anatomy, and while I'd usually tell them to bugger off, I know that they're right. As usual. I haven't really posted anything of this nature to date, but there will be a fair amount from now on.
Jiang; Cheers man, likewise
lacadam; Thanks dude - yeah life drawing is essential and I'm liking getting into it more - I'll definitely check out your sketchbook too

See you're churning through Hogarth You seem to be focusing on the right thing while tempering with imaginative work! That's good! Keep thinking about what you learn from the anatomy studies when you do the stuff from your mind as well.. Hogarth shows you a lot of his construction lines.. try to use that knowledge to push you other stuff to the next level! You're going great, just keep it up!!
Thanks for swinging by my SB!
