    Leysan's sketchbook

    Hello and thanks for stopping by my humble sketchbook.
    Though my primary profession is physics, art is very important for me and I want to take it to a professional level and do freelance work. Some of my dreams is to do illustrations for MtG and DSA, since my friends and I like to play it ourselves.
    So far I haven't done any commissions. I only painted for friends for free or in exchange for little presents. I want my work to reach a level where I would feel comfortable taking money for it ^^;
    I am very thankful for any comment, advice, critique, overpaint/redline and for taking your time looking at my work.

    I like your studies, keep doing them and you'll be fine!
    Try to draw from anatomy books too, it will help you to better understand the 'structure' of the body you're drawing.

    Keep it up!

    Thanks,
    I try to learn from Loomis' books as much as I can, and also from pictures and photos I find online, though copying muscles is somehow... not so enjoyable
    Damn, I should actually do more of them.

    Since I started live drawing I find that having something 3d in front of you is much more comfortable than copying from pc screen. It's not so tiresome for the eyes. Maybe I can sneak into an anatomy class too

    Here's a rose from life:

    Some people tell me it's boring to see me draw only humans all the time and I should do something else for a change.

    and decided to draw some fruits too.

    Finally managed to make the apple look 3d , but somehow the table doesn't look like ... a solid 3d object in perspective and that the apple is really lying on it.

    Impressive sb already! Your figure drawings are coming along nicely, although you should try to improve your line quality, currently they are all too uniform and too light. But your 3D perception looks good, so just keep at it, you're on the right track Nice colour studies too, like that first orange is looking sweet! Nothing else to crit really, just keep doing this and you should improve.

    This way I'm not getting anywhere.
    I have to update daily even if it's just a little bit. If I procrastinate so much anyway, I can at least procrastinate by drawing.
    I want to improve, now!

    What really bothers me is that I absolutely can't draw environments. Sounds like a good reason to do just that.
