Pandahund's sketchbooth - *Update, March 27th : Icarus*
Hey everybody. I've been browsing around here for quite some time now and decided I wanted to start my own sketchbook trying to improve my drawing skills.
For a start here are 2 moviestills (took about an hour for each one). One DSG and some Oilpaintings. The last one is a self portrait.
Hopefully i'll get around to update from time to time

Here's some stuff i had to do for uni. I really wanna do something other than those lifeless studies. Trying to get into anatomie atm. So there'll be a few hopefully not soo shitty sketches in the future Any tips on how to approach learning anatomy? We haven't had act drawing yet at our uni, but i don't really wanna wait
The following pics are done with pencils + coloured pencils, except for pic 3+5 which are done with ballpointpen.

I really admire your studies. they look pretty damn exact and well done. you really do some nice rendering with pencils and ballpoint pens. love all the marbles..
when it comes to anatomy you should have a look at loomis' books and bammes which I really like and you might know as well. bridgeman must be really helpfull as well.
but I'm not the one to talk. gotta do loads more studies. and drawing from life is what helps you improve tremendously. you'll find out yourself when you have your courses. what uni are u studying at?

Thanks man. I'll have a look at those. I study at the "Ruhrakademie" in Schwerte. Looking forward to those courses.
Here are two "quick" photostudies. I want a tablet

Ok, so at the beginning of the semester we had to do that smartiesglass
And now at the end of our semester we had to do it again to show how much we have improved. They're not really compareable since i used a photo for reference for the new one but meh...

loving the studies especially the coloured leaves and the second glass with the ice. I also really like that space enviro, got some class there.
My crit for ya is on this last piece, a lot of the shapes you are using are tending to flatten the image, like the straps across his chest or the frilly cuff. Try to think about how these things would conform to the guy's body in real life.
Also think about the way light would be affected by the position of objects (why is he blue on the opposite side to the gun? Where does the lightsource affecting the sleeve go on the shoulder pad and helmet?)

your pencil stuff are really something to look at. I will say with your some your digital pieces the color seems to be a weakness for you, particularly the first two in post #8. The values could be pushed a little more I think.
You have serious skill going on here otherwise, I look forward to more of your posts.

Thanks for the crits guys. Yeah the lightsource kind of ended up being upside down all around... I gotta be more careful in future pieces. You're right about the straps now that i got an eye for that again You think it could help if I added a slight reflection of the light emitting from his gun?
As for colour in general. I for myself think i've made a bit of progress in that department. You'd probably agree if you knew older attempts but yeah, some stuff of mine looks pretty flat. When i finally get a tablet I'll get around to do more colour studies by then because as working with a mouse is still a bit awkward. You can't blame everything on that though
Thanks again for your comments!

Yeah, you're right. I should change the colour.

Since the beginning of this semester (2 weeks) we're doing figure drawing, so I'll be posting some more stuff in the future hopefully. I can only show a few with photo refs i did in about 15 minutes for each. I still got a lot to learn...
