    Stolen's Sketchbook

    This stuff is a bit old, skip a couple of pages

    I started this sketchbook over two years ago and let it die out. However, it's now the Summer after the first year of Uni studying illustration. I hope to make the most of this Summer and spend a fair bit of it drawing and painting.

    So here goes again! I've set myself a couple of targets to aim for over the next few months, one of them is definitely to get involved with the amazing community of artists here on CA. I hope to challenge myself to learn new media and ways of rendering rather than playing it safe, I've been doing that for far too long now!

    Giving it another shot...

    Thanks,

    Sky

    Some quick sketches

    Here are some quick doodles, one of them is in watercolour...i'm not sure if there's an alternative word for doodling in watercolour. I sketched the noses because i was frustrated with my understanding of facial anatomy...well general anatomy.

    Photshop Work

    This is my first piece of digital work on Photoshop.

    This was for Bumskee's Digital Painting thread.

    off to a good start. i'd suggest doing more anatomy studies, and studies of the structure of the face. i'd also say try to utilize your line more w/ varying line weight, and longer flowing lines. also push your values a lot more w/ a lot more emphasis on lights/darks to help bring out more contrast. keep it up.
    To live is to create, to create is to live. Without art and music, I do not know how I would get by in my day to day life.

    Agree with the poster above, you seem to have it easier with color (shapes/values) than with line so making your line work stronger will eventually give you a better base to put light and color on
    I mean that apple being your first digital piece is pretty nice

    thesadpencil - Thanks for the guidance =), i wasn't sure how best to study anatomy, are there any good books? I think i'll study the facial structure of family members and friends. I'll make sure i practise the line work definately and i'll use major contrast in my tones. Thanks

    Cirrus - I thought that i did too much line a while back, i think have might have started avoiding them! nooo! I will work on it. Thank you =)

    Cheers for the guidance.

    Continued work on anatomy sketches and gesture drawing will help you out a lot I think. Some of your facial drawings are lacking volume and depth as a whole, even though some of the individual pieces have some good things going on (in particular the nose on the face on the right of your last one. It still needs attention though. Keep it up.

    Crazy Pills - Thanks for the crits and advice, i've started studying anatomy straight away =)

    Well here are some facial anatomy studies, unfortunately they are copied from a sheet and not from life =/ but hey =) I'm going to get started on looking at the skull and muscles of the face soon.

    I've realesed today that i am the least efficient in my lifedrawing class at using tone effectively, so i'm continuing to work on that.



    Thanks

    keep up w/ the studies they are coming along nicely. as for anatomy books i'd suggest loomis for the heads and how to assemble a figure and bridgman for a more advanced take on anatomy and musculature. keep it up.

    thesadpencil - Thanks =) I have looked up the anatomy books you have suggested and they look very useful, i'll get my hands on one soon.

    This is today's sketchbook page, it's a bit confusing really. I have a bad habit of drawing stuff too close together, so my drawings overlap =/

    Anyway, i did a (partial) study or two of my left hand and a sketch of my friends face as he worked during my free time at college. I can see quite a few flaws in these drawings.

    Thanks =)

    I've done some sketches of my friend Lee. The most detailed drawing has quite a few flaws in it, the major ones i have notice is the positioning of the eyes and the space between the nose and the lips =/ The line work still needs attention, i totally forgot about it when drawing today.

    It was a fun drawing session though =)

    Thanks
