Visionspring's sketchbook of learning
Hiya, I've been lurking for a while and finally decided to start a sketchbook I really want to improve my anatomy, among other things. I want to get to a decent level so that I can be confident when the November workshop in Wellington rolls around.

Your work is great.
The eyes are a tad large, but your hair and use of color are really good.
And The Bridgeman studies look good.
Please visit my sketchbook.

Love the first 2 pics. The cartoonish guy is great - has alot of character and a creepy atmosphere.
Keep up the studies, use reference. life models, the usual blah blah.
Good start to a SB too.

Thanks for looking at my sketchbook guys! I'm currently trying to work on anatomy (my biggest weakness) by doing bridgeman studies as well as going to lifedrawing once a week.
Salacuis>> The book I'm using is "Bridgeman's complete guide to drawing from life" - http://www.amazon.com/Bridgmans-Comp...2625999&sr=1-1
I really recommend it as he has a way of explaining things that translates well onto paper - like he breaks down the human body into shapes and stuff that just makes everything click - if that makes any sense!
TiWi>> Thanks, I work in Painter - I can't get my head around painting in Photoshop
Here is a WIP - its for someone else's character (I don't usually paint frou-frou outfits like this) However it has been fun working on something outside your comfort zone. Any crits would be greatly appreciated -

Looking really good. the only thing I would suggest is don't use small brushes to much on the larger areas unless it is to add detail. that middle one looks good but the last one has little details on the larger areas of skin. I do the same thing, and have to constantly remind myself.
Studies look excelllent too.
cheers for the advice too btw.

Hybrid_75 >> Its so easy to over detail, isn't it? I will discipline myself to work holistically and with bigger brushes I think its best to go back and knock back the details on the larger bits of skin. Here's where its at so far -
