Nibras' [Lilnebo] Sketchbook - Still wanting to work for Massive Black someday
I always find my self coming back to edit this
My name is Nibras and I am an aspiring concept artist and illustrator. In general just an aspiring artist. When I started this sketchbook I had only just become interested in art, I've never taken art lessons before and it wasn't something I really did as a kid so it was a fresh experience. I was also 14. I guess from that lack of knowledge I made a lot of mistakes, put myself through hard times and generally didn't do the best I could have. After that I had a lot of time where I regretted this but as I grow older I learn more & more thing and understand that art is all passion. Now, I am making up for lost time but even still I wouldn't take any of it back, even if I could be a billion times better by now.
My sketchbook is as much a journal as it is a showcase of my art. Sure I am not proud of my earlier works or even my attitude back then but it's always good to look back at where I came from. In honesty, don't take the beginning of this sketchbook seriously because really I was just a kid and I didn't know what I was doing.
Thank you for dropping by my sketchbook, you're advice and comments have been more helpful than you can imagine so they're always welcome. I hope you enjoy
Hey, that's not too bad in my point of view.
I think the point of doing hand study, can help you figure out what you are lack with. I did the same study yesterday, so check it out later (probably midnight I'm afraid, cause I'm still working on my another character). It was quite frustrating for me in the beginning, but then I try to note down where gone wrong and study the anatomy book a bit. It's always a good thing to note down your thought when you are working on it.
I think you have the basic idea about light, shade and form, and that's good enough to keep evaluate on it as long as you pay attention to the line quality.
Let's see what you will have next time
It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........
If you wanr to study human anatomy you are best of looking into getting an anatomy book by either adrew Loomis, Burne Hogarth or bridgeman. Study hard to improve and also draw from life but never stop enjoying art and never see it as a chore. Try to draw everyday for at least an hour. Good luck.
Yo lil first congrats cose i can see slight progress in ur works but without anatomy human or rather creature drawings will never be correct (unless u are an art mesiah).
OK just tell him that there is A SECOND FREAKIN BERLIN WALL between art and porn if he is so straight headed (by saying this i don't want to insult your father by any means, don't get me wrong). And if he still looks at u with a grin, then just threaten him that either this (i mean art) or u will become urologists. Just kidding he he
No, really, Andrew's books are nothing about male and female organs (in fact i haven't noticed them at all). They are more about muscle system how it works and proportions in movement. If u are looking at this all way then it shouldn't bother u, otherwise u could imagine me drawing naked guys and what my parents reaction to this might be First time it was funny for me, then it was funny for them and now it is normal for both sides.
During the dinner i even asked my sisters boyfrend to pose for me....aw man u should have seen his face (it was a joke, but i don't remember ether my sisters boyfriend didn't understood that, or he just used oportunity to spit out my sisters overkooked meat ).
Last advice if u dont want to study body anatomy yet, just try to get andrew loomis books on "Drawing hands and face" they specialize in anatomy of face and hands (fingers, palms, nails......NO NIPPLES) with that book studied your mind should be "equipped" with enough "understanding anatomy of hands ammo" to draw nice hands (both female and male) so keep up and good luck.
