    Davio's Sketchbook *warning for some nudity* ---Advice is much appreciated---

    Im hoping that by starting this sketchbook I might feel more motivated than intimidated... here goes nothing. Ive never used a mac before but I took the leap and Im actually having a lot of fun with it.


    If Im working on a project that I would like help with I will post the updated image in this first post. Thanks.

    Hey whats going on welcome to CA i saw your sketchbook and I wanted to let you know that you are off to a great start and you are very bold sketching with your tablet very cool!! What i suggest for you right now is too do what I should be doing and putting in mileage. Just draw as much as you can I highly recommend is pencil and sketchpad and continue posting from your sketchbook. your digi stuff is cool but i highly recommend simple pencil and paper.

    Keep it up and see you around!

    I really want to learn how to paint digitally and I figure the only way to learn is to practice. So I found a piece by Marko Djurdjevic, which by the way I just ordered his dvd, and tried to copy it, just as a quick study to attempt to learn my way around photoshop. I know that it isn't original and I also know that it isn't very good but it is just a study, a study of a piece that really motivated me to practice drawing again. But if it is rude to post studies like this then someone just tell me and ill take it off. I cant wait for my dvd to come in.

    Thanks Telvious, Ill also load up some stuff from my sketchbook that I have been working on, I understand that the sketchbook-pad and pencil is important, but I am really enjoying my new pen-tablet.

    I don't see a problem with studies, many artists here on CA have taken the work of professional artists and done studies as long as you acknowledge that is a digital reproduction done for educational purposes then it isn't a problem.
    You will enjoy the dvd by the way very inspirational!
    Enjoy

    remember pencil and paper!!

    You have a nice progress here. I think you ought to concentrate on proportions and getting a confident line. You should definitely keep those studies up! They are going to prove extremely valuable in the future.

    I will strongly suggest you to buy the book, The New Drawing on the right side of the brain. This is the best book I have yet to own about drawing. I'm pretty sure that you use your left brain when you draw at the moment. This means that you know to much about a subject to draw it correctly..

    For example... An head. You know that the head is oval, and that the eyes are placed on top of the head... and that the nose is a triangle.
    You can use some pretty darn useful techniques to "activate" the right side of the brain. The right side is in charge of symbols
    , colours and such while the left side of the brain controls numbers and such.

    You can do an exercise called blind contour drawing. Look at a subject, prefably your hand. Now try to draw the outline of the hand without looking at the paper.
    Now you will only draw the actual lines, and not the lines you "think" you see. After doing this a couple of times, you activate the right side of the brain.

    try to see between the lines, and study the lines. Dont draw what your think you see. Draw what you actually see.

    That's enough of my mumbling :p

    Best

    This is a horrible drawing and the sad thing is that it took me a while to do. I debated on wether or not to even post it but I figure to get better I need to get critiqued. And if I only posted my good drawings I wouldn't post anything... HA,. It is just a character design but it is just so boring, anyhow here it is. I used a mechanical pencil which I haven't really used very much before for drawing.

    Hi Davio, nice studies.
    Some ideas:
    1- use reference as much as you can;
    2- don't press the pencil too much at the beginning, start very ligth and then build up the darker tones.
    3- don't be affraid to erase and do the line again until you get it rigth.
    4- try to push your work further, don't give up too soon.
    keep it up
    cheers
