    Joshua Reimer's Sketchbook. (now with some nudity)

    Hi everyone. Name is Joshua Reimer, I have little to no actual art training of any kind. Mostly self taught, and only now starting to read as much as possible. Plan on going to art school in the next year or two.

    The following images were mostly drawn in my spare time at work, all done with some crappy .9mm pencil.

    The first Image was an attempt to really push my values, something that I've lacked until now.

    The second image was an attempt at a single point perspective. Ended up being a little too extreme for my tastes.

    Third image was just a random tribal thing that I did to try to perfect a stone texture.

    Fourth was a lighting experiment. Trying to sell a night time scene, without making the page black.

    Crits are more than welcome, I crave learning material of all types.

    Nice start, the bottom one is pretty good. Only crit I have is in the perspective of that ship the engine or whatever is a bit off.

    Keep practicing.

    Chris Grisham - You're absolutely right, I think the problem might have been that I didn't have a straight edge on hand to keep my lines straight. It was mostly eyeballed. Thanks for the crit.

    This image wasn't quite the success I was looking for. Trying to pull off some top-down lighting. Botched up the shadow, and the whole thing looks a little busy. I do however like the design.

    Hey, I really like your drawings, especially the one with the mouse sitting on the tree.

    When shading in try to take your time a little bit more, use more controlled hatching and less scribbling. This would definitely help on your final drawing's shadow.

    Also when doing the shadow block it out lightly first and build on to it and I think that would help alleviate its busyness.

    Other than that, you seem to have a really good idea on how to transfer your ideas to paper.

    Thanks Jim, thats good advice. I really appreciate it.

    So I bought a new tablet, and to test it out I did the following, an ancient rusty sword.

    I am very very new to digital art, and could really use any crits.

    You sure have good imagination mate! My crit will be as mentioned to practice some perspective. Tip: try drawing some simple blocks to understand the perspective a little bit more

    Keep it up! ^^

    Have a nice day!

    During ancient times often demons would be hunted, and chained to trees in the great forest. They would die a slow death forever tortured by all the good things in nature.

    Started off as a work for a website, took it a bit further.

    Speedpainting I did to get colors right for a mountain.

    I usually colorpick from photographs, but am now trying to eyeball colors. Don't think I got the desired effect and gave up early. Any help regarding color would be helpful.

    Did a figure study using a Pose from Pose maniacs. Got rather fed up with the face, prompted a week of face study after.

    Great values in your self portrait!
    I enjoyed how your sketches are evolving; the cracker looks great.

    As for eyeballing colors, ignore the preconceptions the mind places on objects and observe how different lighting changes the color, cold and warm.

    The beholder and the chicken piece is great- it made me laugh. I really like the mouse in a tree as well.

    Yikes, it's been over a year since I posted last. Well, I've been drawing on and off, and now have my sights on TAD.

    It's more than too late, but I'm going to hammer down the next little while. Here's some stuff I simply forgot to post.

    Something I sketched, more for getting the colors right, as a result the perspective suffered a little.
