    Chronbergs sketchbook

    It might be a good idea to skip to page 3.. (before that lots and lots of repetitive studies).

    Baby portrait - shading/blending practice

    A portrait I did in july 06. This was to practice blending and shading. I traced the outline and I also picked colours from the ref .
    All painting was done without aid though. The original pillow had stains and some pattern on it so I decided to try to draw a plain white instead.

    Bridgman studies..

    From being inactive for waaaay too long I just started drawing again last week.
    First up, studies from Bridgmans Constructive Anatomy.

    I feel that the proportions are my biggest problem as of now, but I'll just keep on going and hopefully it gets better over time.

    More Bridgman..

    Still fighting with proportions.. trying different ways of finding the contour or silhouette before laying down harder lines..
    Filled my first sketchbook doing this batch.. felt kinda nice! Pathetic, I know... but still, a mini-milestone nevertheless.

    Bridgman continued.

    So.. I guess this book is kinda boring..
    However.. I think I will start doing some color-stuff with the Wacom soon!

    Very nice Bridgman studies. I'm studying the same book myself at the moment and just can't wait to get my hands on the Complete Guide To Drawing From Life I just ordered.

    .. more..

    jackpot_anjr90 - Thank you! Yep.. quite a while. Will try and keep away from that color-sampler from now on!
    ismo - Thanks! Yeah.. I'm thinking about buying his Life Drawing, Human Machine and Hundred Hands as well. More Bridgman to the people!
    Moosh
    - Thanks a lot!

    A few more Bridgman studies... not very good yet.. but I will keep on hammering for a while! Maybe I'm just rushing a bit too much.. not taking my time to check the errors and correcting them?

    I have been drawing some 30-sec gestures from the Posemaniacs site but will do the public a service by not showing them. They are just too strange looking. And also.. I threw them away. I get the feeling that it might be better to just grab some real footage and pause some frames here and there.

    Kinda interested in gesture drawing though.. and will probably keep doing it.. I feel that I need some guidance though.. Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators seems to be a good book. Have read a bunch of positive posts about it.
