    Safesheep's Sketchbook

    Okay, here is my stuff. I'm aiming to improve, so I had better put the work in.

    hey, good to see you've begun.

    right, now i see them there is a similarity in the pencil lines like you said. only you can be the judge of if you've got a good likeness but the third portrait as you say, appears to be the most progressed. i find it a right nightmare working with real media so im not in a position to crit really, i would say forms seem to some together better for me when i cover bigger areas with tones early on, hard to do with pencil i know, but it lets you know where you are early on then the little details take care of themselves. hope this is of any use to you

    its looking cool so far, and to do any anatomy from memory is excellent. keep it up!

    Update no. 1

    HumanNature- thanks, posting more now!

    Maths- thanks for the encouragement and advice! I will try and put larger forms down first

    Alright more sketches!
    A self-portrait, figured doing one in which I am smiling would be nice

    And some studies of my left hand! The contrast got all screwy when I tried fixing it in photoshop, which I have to do since taking a photo of it washes out everything terribly, sorry!

    thanks katsgod and maths!
    sorry for the really long delay in posting here, I've been finishing up with finals, and I just had my last one today. I'm all moved out and back home, finally getting over my cold too, so thats a good deal. My sketchbook should start to be a regular thing now. And if its not I want to come back to it and find a bunch of angry artists yelling at me for not updating!

    maths: some of the sketches are from a Loomis figure drawing book, and some of them are done from that posemaniacs site.
    silverpoint was how many drawings were done back in the old days before graphite/lead pencils were used. It involves coating your paper with a paste that reacts with the silver that you use to make marks with. If you are interested in chemistry at all, the paste contains a zinc oxide, which is what reacts with the silver. If you want to know more than my simple explanation I'm sure there is info you can look up on wikipedia or something.

    So the plan now is to get some stuff posted tomorrow, I have some drawings from life drawing class, and maybe even a digital still life study. So there should be some stuff to finally look at!

    Alright its time to get some sleep, a bit tired from moving and helping friends move their stuff out of the dorms too. Bed time!

    something new

    Alright, here are some digital still lifes I've been trying my hand at. Bumskee's digital painting in photoshop thread has been really helpful, so I figured I start doing some digital stuff. I'm not sure if I should post my drawings from class in here, since they are more finished... should they go in a different forum somewhere?

    an apple from friday. Didn't really get into any details on this one.. first attempt, so I'm happy with it.

    a banana from yesterday. Got into the details more on this one. These are quite fun, so I'll be doing a lot more of em.

    hey man, yea just post whatever you have, sketch or finished pieces, i'd like to see them. still lives looking cool, i'm told that keeping your brush opacity on 100% helps build your confidence in colour and shape, and keeps that soft digital look at bay. do you have career stuff in mind? like, what you want to do with your art ?

    far too long

    I haven't posted any updates in ages. Summer just makes me lazy. Anyways here is some stuff from the last week or two. Most of these are drawn from photos or from life, a couple are straight outta my head, and one is drawn from one of coldrum's sketches. His sketches are a lot like those that I've done in ballpoint pen, and oh yeah, coldrum is really good. http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=98483
    You can probably tell that my sketches are very influenced by coldrum's

    ok here we go
