To Infinity and Beyond
Welcome to my sketchbook,
My name is Mathijs de Schipper and i am 17 years old. I am lurking this place for over 6 months now, today I finally found the courage to post here. The level of the artwork here is so high. I am currently in highschool and we are not getting much art lessons here, so everything is selfthought. I could make the most progress through reading comments in other sketchbooks and apply them on my work. I am working currently on my anatomy for my figure drawing and i love to do selfportraits

hey, great studies, looks like you are off to a good start. I'm loving the self portrait drawings. Keep it up!

It's a good and long standing tradition, learning from doing self-portraits. There's no better example than the great man himself, Rembrandt. He produced many of them. Your work shows great promise, Weavel. Keep it up : )

Wisteria thanks, i am doing these selfportraits for over a long time now and i always see some progress so it is easy for me to keep doing these, the progress keeps me motivated
Hethabyr Rebrandt's work is a real inspiration for me, i loved his work when i vistited het Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
BRINKMAN! Thanks, i have already done a lot of studies from Bridgeman and Loomis but it is never enough, i am going to concentrate me more on the feet, they are way behind on the rest.
And here are some drawings from today and yesterday. The figuredrawing is made with reference from characterdesigns.com. I also did a studie from Loomis and i revisited a portret i have done some months ago for a friend. It is looking way better now.

progress is good. i would suggest that you focus on the outline of the figure, and not the jibblets on the inside.

swordmaster_g Thanks for the advice i really appreciate it, yeah sometimes i get lost in my own drawing and focus to much on the shades. But i have to keep it simple and focus more on the shape of the figure.
Ignominious, Glory666 It is nice to see other young people around here your works inspire me also to keep drawing and make the progres
Here are my drawing from today, i decided to do some studies of the foot because they always look like hoofs in my drawings. I did some studies from Bridgeman and some foots from Loomis but he keeps it a bit simple. And the last sketches are my happy feet....

My sketches from today
Again a selfportrait "en profil" this time, it was quite hard to get the portrait good looking. I have to practice more with en profil faces.
And a figure drawing, this time i focused more on the outline then on the rendering and it went quite well.
And last but nog least my first digipaint ever, it took a lot of frustrated photoshop sessions but today i finally managed to get something decent out of my wacom tablet

Hello and welcome! I'm also 17, soon to be 18. It's good to see you're drawing a lot, you have some really nice studies here! I would say so far your forte is value, you have a very good understanding of that. However your line work seems to be a little tense and not very varied in pressure, it seems to be going at the same roughness all around your stuff try to keep some parts looser, i think it will help. The digi piece is good, tho i think a darker background would have helped emphasise the rest of the colors you used. Keep posting!
