    The CHEAP side of Art *Nudity*(08 / 02 / 2010)

    Boy, i'm nervous.
    My first sketchbook ever, after years of browsing the sketchbook section, i feel that now is the time for me to start posting.

    Ever since i know myself I always wanted to be able to draw, but only now i'm really taking it serious. I don't really have too much $ resources, so i use 'cheap materials' in my art. A simple mechanical pencil, 6b pencil, A4 paper, you got it.

    At the moment i'm studing anatomy, trying to nail down the shoulder/clavicle part right. I try to expand my horizons, drawing from artbooks, photos, imagination, others artists.

    All critics accepted, any kind, construtive, destructive, any help is apreciated! I can't wait to see how this will turn out.

    Well, now for the art itself:
    My anatomy studies, 2 - 7 minutes each. From Loomis, Photo and My head.

    Thank you for seeying.

    PS: The display picture is an old vector-like drawing i made.

    Over and over...

    Wow, 100 visits already, thanks all for seeying.

    More sketches today, same theme chest/shoulder/neck. With the exception of one arm study and one quick head from imagination.
    The arm, is from a madonna picture. Pretty nice musculature view.

    Its a pleasure to be able to expose my little sketches here.
    Thanks y'all for seeying.

    Thats for the comment Jokisalo! It's a pleasure to have such a fine artist commenting on my sketchbook!

    Here are some quick doodles, to keep the sketchbook moving! All these holydays are slowing me down, things to buy, places to go...

    Anyway, all sketches from 26/07, all from my mind!

    Thanks for seeying!

    Hi there, thank you for stopping by! Nice to see someone else practicing anatomy too. It's the fundament of everything else, so I guess there's no way around it. ;o)
    As for your sketchbook, good stuff, keep it up. If I may give you an advice: use reference more often. There will be a time when we can draw from imagination, but at first we need to get to know how things are connected by looking at reference to internalize.
    Good luck!
    Please excuse my poor English, it's not my first language!

    Hi there......

    Nice to see you have the art potential for future. Keep on posting and you will see improvements on a daily basis. So far so good
    You I see like me use A4 paper for the sketches. I also use mechanical pencils 07 and 05..... finer line, easy to sharpen leads, consistent line when required.

    Keep it going

    Thanks!

    Thanks for all the comments, it really means a lot to me.

    Lennon: Yeah, i really need to do more fullbody drawings, i'm not very confident with my general anatomy, thats why i didnt started doing fullbodies yet. But i really can't wait to start doing them! I really like yours.

    Chocolate: You're right, i really should try to focus myself more on reference and less on doodles, but sometimes i can't resist lol. I like to use it as a way to see what i really learned and what not, but I will try to focus more on refs.

    Clickety Click: Thanks man, yeah, i really love the mechanical pencil, its so precise and unforgiving, it really makes you push your limits.

    Thanks everyone, for seeying and commenting, i will keep it up!


    As for today, i will start with an older sketch, from 16/12/07. Almost all drawings from photo reference. And 3 noses just for fun! Hope there is improvement from there to here!
    Thanks all for seeying! Best wishes!

    Good to see you're keeping at it

    One tip, you might try to draw a little bigger or with a finer pen as your lines are rather thick and don't allow for much nuance. If you draw bigger/finer you can put in more detail and it's also easier to correct mistakes. Also, differences in line thickness is a good way to make something more 3d.

    thank for the visit! I would do as yoitisi said and try to draw with a thiner pen when you´re going after detail and with a wider one on a quick sketch.
    nice studies. keep doing them!

    Thanks for the tips elpez and yoitisi i really need to draw bigger, most of my drawings are very small. So, for the next times i will really try to focus myself more on the line nuance and size, my linework is lacking practice.

    Last day of the year, i wish i could end the year with a more classy drawing, but i can't resist doing anatomy.
    All the noses are from photos, done in 10-30 seconds each. The trunk & arms took a little more, all of them from reference too (Books and Photos).

    I'm feeling a slighty improvement in my "observation" skills, it is still very hard to put what i see on the paper, but i feel i'm getting better. My rendering skills seen to be improving a little too. I really hope when i look back at this sketchbook i can see improvement..

    The eyes were drawn just for fun, from ref too, i plan to draw more of then and re-scan the page later.

    Well, best wishes for the next year for all of you.
    Thanks for seeying and commenting, it really means a lot to me.
    C'ya next year!

    Nice studies Carbono, keep it up and you'll be great in anatomy in no time.
    I like the red sketches in your post of 30 dec. In my experience its a good method to work like that, i mean searching for the correct line thinly and than going over the aesthetically more pleasing line with a clearer and sharper line (same medium or not no difference)
    I like the sketch above the woman's breast in your last post especially, good work. you can also try to shade by going over your lines with a paper stump (roll paper up thightly secure it and cut it in the right shape and blend away ,if on budget like i am lol)
