Thread: enrigo's sketchbook
November 3rd, 2007 #1
I'm pretty new to ConceptArt.org and any other artist community site, and this is my first sketchbook on this site.
Usually I don't post my drawings anywhere (partly because I think it will turn me into a forum junkie and forgot to actually practice drawing)But lately I've been slacking too much and I think starting a sketchbook here would be a good way to force myself into drawing again.
I don't have a scanner but I think photographing would be just fine for now,sorry about the image quality.
Also I'm working on portrait drawing and I find this site very useful http://www.portrait-photos.org/shuffle.phtml
here's some of the recent work

I have a cheap graphic tablet but I can't find a battery for the pen (it uses AAAA size and apparently even the hardware store guys said they never heard of it). Well until then I can't start working on CG painting which I really want to improve.

I want to draw Lincoln after I watched an episode of Clone High, The cartoon's concept is pretty cool but not so entertaining

hello there. i joined last week. well, i can say that it is a real motivation engine here and youve made the right choice, if you really want competent critique.
there are surely some nice drawings here, but dont you want to try out something more "conceptual"? bring in all that stuff thats in your head, and if its the "super-killer-punk-space-queenbee".

Hi and welcome to CA! Nice start you've got here---first thing is what everyone alsways says---post some more! The more you post the more the amazing collection of artists here can help you grow.
I can't really think of much to crit in your work because I"ve been up since 3 am today at work, but one thing I noticed on your face pieces, if the nose is going to be shown at anything other than straight on perspective, the eyes will not look the same shape. One should be slightly bigger than the other because as the head turns, one eye is closer than the other, and also the shape of the eye changes. Does that make sense?
I think you've got a great start and you've definitely got potential. HanRa's right, let your mind go for a walk and tell us what you find...
LIVE FREE. DRAW HARD.

Hi guys and thanks for the comments.
I would sure like to do some of the "conceptual" stuff but I haven't been drawing from imagination for a while and I find it hard to jump right back to that. HanRa I checked out your sketchbook and that's really the kind I like and I would love to be able to draw like that. You're really great with forms that I feel my drawing is too flat.
about the nose and eye angle I think I get the point there and I'll try to lookout for mistakes, I think it is because usually I start with the eyes so maybe I don't see what went wrong until I go further with the nose and etc.
It turns out I have to buy the AAAA battery from Ebay cause it's impossible to find

I try to start doing some more imaginative stuff but still with references.
I change the pose of the Fallout armored guy a bit and it get really crooked, especially the shoulder. I need to start learning perspective... stupid rulers :grunt:

This one is my work for art class at school. It is from a picture from the game "shadow of the colossus", and it is just almost finish. If it's a bit chaotic that's because it has to be done with 4 media about equally. The pencil shades are very faint but the actual one is pretty dark.

I'm really digging that colossus piece! Is that colored pencil on the fur section? If so you have some great skill with it.
Only crit i can give is to spend a little more time on rendering out those portraits right now they seem a little rushed after the lines are done.
Nice job and keep it going!

Thanks Zachro , the fur is actually in acrylic and it's kind of a happy accident,because I did a bad version of it and paint over and over again a few times and it work together like this.
I really rushed many of my drawings which many times I don't realize that I am rushing it too much. I skipped some steps and to fix it is just too late.
I don't know why I always do that but it really seems like a bad habit.
anyway thanks man !!

yesterday I was overflown with art homework that I didn't have time to draw. It sure sounds stupid to me.
The first sketch has really bad lines compare to the second one, probably because I did the second one while watching a tutorial video and draw following the teacher. This really proves to me that I lack confidence while doing my own drawing, but i guess it's better to know my own weakness though it's not so pleasant.

Some more figure sketches, the man's torso look kinda awkward but I don't know what went wrong with it. I had an upcoming art project due Tuesday and it's just an open challenge, but I still have no idea what to do for it.
