    sketch book a la crumpy

    Heyho peeps,
    I'm a young inexperienced artist looking to develop myself as much as possible and so I though it was about time I got myself a sketch book up here. Hope you like, and of course, critique is whole heartedly welcomed.

    These are some sketches of people in the park today done on a little A5 pad.
    I enjoyed it but everybody keeps moving! I'm just not fast enough and I was too embarrassed to stare at the ones who were standing still. Thus, loads of people drawn from the back.

    Also, if anyone has any tips or has a link for quick life drawing processes please feel free to post it up. I'd be very interested in hearing it.

    And here is some more stuff from a while back.

    The first was done using a tutorial from drawspace.com, the second was using pose maniacs and the last two are Loomis studies.

    Your on the right track mate, now start building up this sketch book so we can pick out some weaknesses and attack em.

    O and i understand your issues with drawing in the public, try and where sunnies and the biggest thing is Try and build up you visual memory, its a awesome skill to strengthen and will help you with everything not just art. Try and look at a person then immediately close your eyes and try and visualize as much information about what you just saw like pose/clothes/shapes its hard to do but it will get better with practice and obviously try and draw what you visualize you will understand what i mean if you keep trying it after a while of doing it you can think back months and remember a whole room full of information its a really cool skill.

    Thanks for the advice aussiedeza, I'll definitely give that a go.
    I'll try to get something a bit more developed up here soon for some proper crit.

    Thanks Mepp, tis a pleasure

    Cheers aifolx, I find sexy people are the hardest to draw because they think your perving on them! lol

    Here's some more stuff from today.

    The first three are 30 sec poses on posemaniacs. I found it so hard to get each one down on paper before I ran out of time. I think I only completed one!

    And the last is a couple of hand sketches from the same site.

    A couple of hands, took about 20 mins each, I think.

    Had to use the eraser once or twice because I got the basic shapes wrong at the beginning, they still look a bit out to me.

    Good start bro,I see you already have loomis, but suggest you also check out Bridgman.

    Gestures are a great start.

    You are definatly on the right track, every artist needs a good understanding of the human figure so keep those sketchs up. If it's possible for you try and find a class or something that has live nude models. I know some art schools allow the public to come to the nude model classes, you just have to pay a fee. At my art school they have night classes that allow the public to come and draw the models, its only like 8 bucks for 4 hours.

    These last four are copies of other artists work that i have found on these forums. un-fortunatly i cant credit each artist as i have long forgotton who they were. i hope no-one minds, think of them as master studies...

    my friend has asked me to recreate a small sketch, for her website. only bigger and more detailed. she has also requested that i try to place more emphasis on the hair. im planning to go to town on the detail in the hair but im not too sure how.

    any tips or crit you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
    especialy if you have an idea on how i can make the hair 'pop'... mabye i could lay in a backgroung tone but leave it very light around the hair?

    anyways, here are he WIP pics...

    tonights scribbles whilst watching the big bang theory, what a brilliant little comedy that is by the way.

    In this first one, I wasn't trying to achieve a realistic looking human head preportion wise, but I was thinking about the 'planes' of the face and trying to show a sense of volume. I feel it worked in some areas, but not many....

    when I stated this thread I was looking to learn as much as i can and develope as quickely as possible. a year or so has gone by and that definatly hasn't happend. life can provide some much unwanted distractions at times.

    but im back now with a new enthusiasm. I'm really going to be spending as much time as alows dedicating myself to devolping my abilities. I'm hoping this will be one off those scetchbooks where you flick through the pages and watch a remarkable rate of improvement.

    I'm planning to do an oil painting from life every single day for a year (I've never even attempted to use oil paints) and hopefully I'll learn a lot.

    I'm going to do something similar with digital speed painting once I have aquired the hardware and software to do so. and I will carry on with my anatomy studies all the while. I don't plan to ever stop doing anatomy and life studies.

    anyway, thanks for checking out my sketchbook. please let me know what you think, whatever you think... and wish me luck!

    Crumpy my good man, you commented in my sketchbook a while back and I figured it was finally time to return the favor. You definatly seem to be moving in the right direction, I recently rediscovered Bridgeman myself and I find his work invaluable. You might also want to consider picking up David Rubins' "The Human Figure." Its a really cheap book (like $10 on Amazon) and it goes into a lot of detail about anotomy that gets glossed over in other books.

    Keep it up!
