    Eat, Sleep, Draw - liquorbleu's allovertheplace sketchbook

    My name is Corinne I'm 21 and planning on starting a BFA soon but have not taken any art classes so far.

    I'm really pushing to learn how to pain environments and draw images that tell a story.

    I draw every day, I've only been drawing since October 2011. I update here when I feel like I have something that expresses struggles, process, new techniques.

    Thanks for looking I'd love any critiques you have especially on painting or any insights on books to read, tutorials to read, etc.

    Here's some Brigman studies from today. Really working on not "petting" the line. My lines are really choppy and I'm trying to fix that.

    Did some Brigman faces today, I can feel they are really helping!

    The one with the weird tentacle monster and gliding guy are from imagination so they look a lot better.

    Also a cowboy picture I struggled with last night, I think my forms today look a little better.

    Thanks Johanne!
    I feel those studies are really helping, but when sketching from life I'm having a hard time deviating from my sketchy lines.

    Here's a scene I did from gladiator to show what I did today.

    I guess I'm just afraid of being inaccurate but maybe I just have to be a little inaccurate for awhile?

    Did a sketch of Mandalore from star wars last night too. I used a reference from a comic artist to draw it. I was working on lines a little more but it looks a little sketchy still with all the black shading I had to do.

    Hey guys!

    Here's what I've been doing the past couple days, been working on faces a whole lot. Decided I'm going to try that 100 faces thing because I'm really struggling with them.

    The skulls and face are obviously Brigman, the warrior woman I copied from a painting which you can see here

    Nice faces bro! Keep doing those studies.Found out they really hold the key to a good foundation in art.Practice practice practice .Have you looked through some of Bridgman's or Burne Hogarth's books.They are quite useful when it comes to human anatomy.Good luck and keep posting!

    Today is the 30th day in a row of drawing! A whole month! I'm going to celebrate by practicing my first landscape painting (which could potentially be terrible but we will see!)

    For today's sketches though I did some brigman and more face studies - but I also did some more in depth fun sketches. I figured this sketchbook can wait a day for me to post more brigman and I wanted to post this stuff instead.

    They both have some anatomy problems and both of them are from imagination with zero reference. I've got a long road ahead!

    Cheers!

    Cool! visible progress here, and it's great that you're keeping to a tight schedule and drawing every day. Keep it up!

    I think you'd benefit from trying to draw fewer, bigger lines when you sketch. Your drawings look very scribbly and uncertain right now -- try and think about what the shape you want to draw is, and then draw it clean!

    Here's some stuff I did today.

    I'm struggling with painting a bit, couldn't figure out how to make that copious amount of trees in a short time. There were a bunch of trees covered in snow at the bottom that I cropped off because I couldn't figure it out.

    Hey guys! I feel like I had a pretty good art today. I made it to 30 faces but I did some fun stuff too cause I was feeling a little down last night.

    Here's the stuff I fiddled around with today.

    The window scene is from 28 days later.
