    Magic day

    I was on this amazing talk from Gabor Maté M.D. He is a physician,
    speaker, teacher and bestselling author whose books have been published
    in nearly twenty languages worldwide.

    www.drgabormate.com

    The sketch of him is in the first top left corner, and many other faces
    that I have drawn in the subway, on the Street, in Bars.

    At the end you see some of my energy drawings, where I imagine how sound
    waves travel in space. I had a very special day when I was listening to my
    friend Jeffree (nickname) I enjoy meeting people on the street and
    listen to their stories, which is what the first sketch with the ear and
    the mouth exemplifies just that: "LISTENING SKILL"

    I learn so much about me our culture/ society when I listen to homles
    people/ children on the street.

    Anyway here is what Jeffree says about this sketch I made for him to
    raise money for his DREAM:


    (The story will come as soon as he has www and reads this )

    So far I had a lot of fun drawing this you can see the steps I took:

    Hiya Mr, I haven't been to the ROM in ages, looks like you had fun!
    I really need to find some time to get out more and sketch things!

    I have a new game for you to try - it's about line control

    Take 5 minuets and practice drawing lines and controling the thickness of those lines - thick to thin, thin to thick, thin thick thin, thick thin thick.
    try to draw the same line 3 times, as straight as you can.

    Draw circles and try to close the end without over lapping.

    if you do this 5 minuets every day you will have much more control over your lines - I do it all the time

    happy sketching !

    line control

    @RhubixI have a new game for you to try - it's about line control
    I suggested that too to my younger students, and I haven't done it for a while
    but here it is and the Children drawing exercise www.iveno.de/htd.swf
    where I mention demonstrate this in the WARM UP button.

    Thanks for popping in, lets sketch out sometimes before you become a Slavimator!

    Heyya,

    I agree with Rhubix, you would really benefit from some more life drawing.
    Those line control exercises look like a good idea too, maybe I should try that.
    It might also be a nice idea to do some more finished works now and then, to test yourself.
    Glad to see that you are still working and posting, I like the museum sketches!

    @greyskillI tested my self and worked on this, it took me almost 2years.
    My childrens program THE ECO FOOTPRINT WEEK

    My next project is an interactive movie about the question WHY IS IT CALLED MOTHER EARTH
    The sketches are only brain storms but they are kinda cool I THINK. If I would post them, people
    would probably not appreciate them as much as I do. On page 7 I posted the first digital sketch!

    I am gonna finish this Every day Earth day Illustration and sell it on the street !
    Any suggestions for composition/ color.
    What about the Museum sketches isn"t that from life?!

    People here don't really see what I am doing when I stop drawing from life, I desing things like
    that, loooots of finished stuff : Screenshots finished works

    Iveno 4=
    EVERY DAY EARTH DAY !

    Nice exercises. Now start to think from point A to point B and what line should go there, says she who doesn't always do it but should.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    @Black Spot I am sure it makes sense when I understand what you are trying to say
    you are usually saying things that make sense to me

    I wish somebody would help me here, I am asking my self what can you guys tell me about
    this picture how can I make it look better, what can you teach me!

    I worked on the banner as you can see !

    I know I should do some more from life, some more nudes some more this and that. I WILL!
    But lets see what I already got and how I can learn from whats HERE.

    I was also asking for advice with the earth picture, maybe you guys have some time!

    Every day Earth day

    This is gonna be fun the first picture will be a 20x30inch image which
    I will carry with me in Caronto to make people aware of my attentions.

    I ordered 1000 post cards from the second image where I will announce
    my idea and also have the other image developed that people can read
    about my workshop: www.iveno.de/ecow.swf

    There is also the LOGO from the workshop and the back from the postcard
    which belongs to the first image.

    Things like that I usually don"t post here cause nobody really responds
    to that other than: Draw more from life, draw more objects, more perspective.
    Please be nice and start from whats there, I will do some more homework.
    I know whats required here to get feedback and attention


    All this work is 100'ts of hours which I put into composition, colors, design.
    The hole idea to figure the program out and give it its structure.

    If this would be a payed project I think I would not need to work for a few
    years, cause I could pay my rent.

    Anyway, please advice me on these images regarding to composition and colors.
    Examples are useful better than much writing, THANKS GUYS.

    OH HEY HAPPY EARTH DAY

    And here they are again merging from the buttom of my ecomental self.
    Skyscrapers, Trees, Animals and other characters from my ecoself.

    I am really learning how to use the silhouets more and more and how
    important this approach is to communicate, mood, character and intentions
    from the character.


    I learn to draw smaller and focus more on the sihouette in the middle of
    the process of creating and Illustration.

    After all the faces you can see how I posted sketches from houses and trees
    , a dog and highrises which bend over. I want to create this

    **Industry VS Nature theme**

    It's not really clear yet I think, but there is one sketch (under the car/Mountain) where you can
    see industry beside nature, its hard to combine them and to keep it interesting
    at the same time considering all the tangents/ overlaps.

    I learn so much by doing this, please advice me, maybe usefull links about this
    hole mass scene topic.


    IF the Silhouette already communicates whats happening the clean up will have a better impact!

    Hey Iven, I really admire your dedication towards this cause . There's not a lot I can comment on because I am not really sure what you are going for and which audience it particularly tries to appeal to but it seems like it appeals to perhaps children? if that is so then it does not have to be technical with perspective and all that jazz but the key is pretty much simplicity. I can say that I am not really feeling the composition, it could be just me, because I feel that everything feels cluttered and my eyes get a little disoriented on what to look at. For the colors, I feel like it's a little muddy as well as lacks color variance in the actual painting though I have to say to take my advice on this with a grain of salt for I just started to learn to paint.

    Exclamation Mass scene

    @(ALL)kamikazell Thanks for your impression and feedback.

    Its a mass scene, the being of a the mass scene is *cluttered
    Color wise I thought bright in the front *EVERY DAY EARTH,....* and than
    the trees *darker green than the ground which makes a contrast to the
    very dark blue background
    and also comunicates their mood- MAD!

    One of my favorite mass scenese. The true cost of coal.


    Please feel free to question anything I say I am here to learn !

    Heya mr. I did a quick sketch over that painting you mentioned.
    I think simplicity is key- if your basic pieces are working, detail will make it look better.

    If the big pieces are not positioned well, no amount of detail will make it look nicer.

    Always think - What is the most important part of the image? Everything else should help enhance that focal point.

    With the mother earth picture, the message is not clear. Earth is standing in a pile of garbage but she is smiling, bright and happy.
    If this part of the website is about how wonderful the earth is, the background should show that or be neutral
    If this part is about how terrible the destruction is, her expression should reflect that she is unhappy.

    TUTORING

    HEY MISS thats an amzing approach, I tried it right away with a different
    image, here you can see how I did it, THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time
    for me. THIS is the real shit

    I also posted all kind of seeds which will become a logo for the Toronto Seed Library.
    Drawing the silhouette is such a great tool it even make me add stuff which I didn't
    think of in the prozes of drawing the character.

    I love this tool, useing the silhouette and its shape to see if it communicats
    properly. THANK GUYS for critique/ feedback please speak your mind, and thanks
    Rhubix for sharing your skills.



    This hole seed stuff is a doughter project from the Eco-Footprint week: www.iveno.de/ecow.swf

    Cute pic.

    Adding more values to the piece will make it stronger. All the trees are about the same color and their also the same color as the grass. while it is at night there would still be some difference in color. Trees further back would be darker. The grass would be darker as it gets further away. Perhaps there is another light source somewhere? You could make one of those drum on fire that would add a crazy light source. Or just light from the moon. Or something that is off screen that we don't see. Rim lighting makes things that have a similar color stand out. Don't be afraid to play with lighting, you can always do small mock up color thumbnails before talking the larger piece. If you are nervous to mess up your piece do the lighting on a separate layer so you can always remove it if you go to far. Digital art is very forgiving.

    @Pencil-Chewer Thanks, your feedback is very useful. I printed already 2000 cards thou !
    I might use your feedback for my next tree illustration, I hope you'r sticking around here, I need
    to learn still a lot about colors.

    @ALL LOTS of sketches, from the subway, from my english class. Hand gestures and faces from
    the streets of Toronto. I do indicate more and more the grid on the ground which I learned from Rhubix.
    It makes sense to do that. I tried to do a digital painting in Photoshop, it's just no for me. It's
    soooo slow,........I prefer VECTORS, FLASH. Cause the most stuff I also animate so why doing in Photoshop.

    THANKS for any usefull critique, thanks for posting/ coming back and supporting my hard work to get
    better skills.

    Kindly Iven

    Learn to draw and animate

    I love to teach and to inspire, since I drew stick figures I was
    always excited to show other how easy it is to draw them. Now I draw
    Monsters, Vikings, Sorcerer, and other bullies to make young and old
    giggle and smile. Here's an attempt to get some income from my passion.

    Don't bother with the right image with the table- its an old version.
    What do you guy's think about the colors/layout from the first left picture?

    Any feedback might help me to pay my rent even better

    Hey, Ivan, haven't been here in a while! A lot of interesting stuff going on, and I think what'll really push your art along is solid study and work on construction and perspective. Scott Robertson's DVD on basic perspective drawing is a great resource and one that'll keep your busy for months, if you're interested in checking something specific out. Keep it up!

    ivan, long time no see

    I looked through your last few pages, and am thrilled to see that especially on this last page your lines are tightening up and gaining clarity. I'd actually like to see you do SOME MORE of that. Don't get me wrong, your fast and furious sketching is awesome - but I recommend doing some very clearly defined lines and shapes sometimes. The reason for that is it will force you to seriously define objects and how 3d forms connect together. It can be much slower at first but it will later help you in your fast sketches.

    Hope that helps. Keep it up. Oh, and the ROM drawings are awesome. I love that museum for all the sketching material and want to go there again the next time I ever pass through Toronto.

    Clearly defined lines - Vectors

    @MrFrenik Hi Frenik I looked into you Perspective Puzzles, that's fancy stuff man,
    interesting thread from you. I will pop in there again and see what you guy's are up to!
    @freakmodYou totally got me there, but the clearly defined lines I do with my
    vectors as you can see in the following example. I know what you are saying thou, and you
    are right that it will help with the fast sketching. The ROM sketches are clearly defined
    lines for me! That's the stuff you'd like to see more right ?!


    SOME VECTORS for my critical jury here
    thanks for popping in this sketchbook of my!

    Oh, wow you do a lot of drawing! Your 'toon characters are pretty particularly the TV guy - his sad face is great.

    I think earlier you said you were studying perspective & construction? One book I'd recommend for that is 'Sketching The Basics' by Koos Eissen, it's mainly about product design & drawing but I found that helped me loads with my perspective work. Also as mentioned abouv Michael Hampton's book is a gold mine!

    My only crit would be about colour. All the colours you use are of the same saturation/intensity and brightness (I'll admit I do this too which causes problems with my work, so they tend to fight for dominance and sometimes make an image uncomfortable to look at. Sometimes this works and others it doesn't. Especially in the case of scenes, it really doesn't work. Using more than one primary colour has the same uncomfortable effect. Next time you do a piece try having only certain parts (usually the focal point, say a character or a vehicle like in you pics above) and have the rest less saturated, perhaps use some greys or complimentary colours. That way it draws your attention to a particular part of the image. Having colours that 'fight' each other stops your eye from settling on the image as everything fights for attention. Kinda like if you are talking to a group of people but they are all shouting at the same time. There is always exception to the rule of course but it pays to give these tips a go.

    This guy's videos are great for explaining colour: http://willkempartschool.com/acrylic-painting/ I found them to be really useful.

    I hope that helped some, sorry for the essay and thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

    Those vectors are really nice- love the flower. I suggest exploring colours, and how they can enhance your image - a lot of your stuff is very samey. Same colours all the time. check out Pascal Campion His work is super simple but really tells a story- I'm a huge fangirl.

    Also, I think the website thing looks good - I like the painted edges, very clear.

    Water colors and pencil colors

    @ SpaceJelly'sThanks for the video buddy I really dig it, you are right about it I kinda just start to really
    use colors and to think in colors did you see my website, I use a lots of colors there! Thanks for you comment buddy!

    @ Rhubix What website thing, are you talking about my LEARN TO DRAW and animate ?!
    Hey I started to use more water colors since I just don't really like Photoshop!

    I know Pascal Campion, big fan of his work since many years, I like his animations !
    GUY's be gentle on me now I am like a child with a new medium I like water colors because
    they are kinda like me they do everything a little bit as they want. I am discovering that
    I can mix them and have more or less value. I am also working on a new Video(flash), lots of work.
    I don't really sketch much these days, didn't even buy a metro pass so no subway sketching.

    But I think I will just color and try to play around with all the other old sketchbooks and
    color them, that sounds like fuuuun. I like everything classic, classical animation/ cut out
    animation, stop motion and everything crafty!

    One of my favorite kids shows is Blues Clues it's so much like me:

    iveno - spawn - Joecartoon

    I am just watching this amazing docu about the devil_you_know_inside_mind_of_todd_mcfarlane.

    We have a lot in common, I love sports I have a strong will I am a workhorse. I believe in me and I looove toys.
    And I have this brutal side in me too which is why I am so kind, because violence doesn't really solve problems
    it just makes them bigger. Brutal in the way that I would like to eat up anybody who screws around with
    mother earth/
    shots any children in the streetcar!

    I am the peacefullest person in the world thou, I even stop with my bike and carry snails to the
    other side of the road just to make them survive another day in this bad ass city hey + being VEGAN.
    But I want to express my anger just like Todd did !!!

    Now when I am writing this something else makes more sense to me, the skyscrapers I am drawing are a reflection
    of this dark concrete jungle- Toronto.

    Conclusion: I should draw Skyscrapers in my style being brutal as Spawn and having them maybe a look like JOECARTOON,
    flash style. Let's what we will see in 5 years from now on maybe I am so f**cking rich that I can buy of all the forest and develop
    free energy in order to EAT UP the oil cooperation.

    I spoke my mind to remind me of this idea, cute skyscrapers eating up bad people/ cooperations who are
    only for short term profit and harming the planet and future generations. We are creating our own dark
    future.

    Anyway this picture is dedicated to Sammy Yatim, R.I.P. brother fair well !!

    Water colors and pencil colors

    I learned quite a bit today, I am coloring all my old sketches in,
    that gives me practice and understanding how the water colors work.

    More water= less value/
    Less water= more value/ stronger colors

    Does anybody of you guy's know some good water color tutorials/videos/ user sketchbooks?!
    So I figured about me that I am about everything classical and crafty, I was frustrated about me
    because I tried to color in Photoshop but I just didn't like the feel of it. Maybe not the time right not!

    Thank you for feedback links and suggestions!
