    DoubleThink's Sketchbook

    Hi,

    I'm from Belgium & want to draw more, hence the sketchbook.
    I started drawing seriously about a year and a half ago, when I signed up at college for my graphic design classes, sketching was one of them.

    I'm 21 now and I would like to learn how to draw with the Wacom tablet, with which I had some fun this afternoon. Well... fun, it's a 20 euros tablet, so it's not worth much, but I try

    Here's some older stuff

    Master study of a hawfinch, original was by Carl Brenders, who is argueably the best nature painter in the world... :p

    Don't have a picture of the original, but I wasn't that far off... (80 hours approx)

    Part of being a graphic designer is begin able to work with markers & reproduce fast images of how stuff's going to look like.
    Here's my take on parts of a skatepark, promoting a new shoe by Globe.







    I'll try & add some figure studies when my scanner's been fixed.

    Oi, A majority of ur art is hard to read. Your colors seem to be really blurry and your not quite sure how to work with it. A good way to get learn photoshop is to look at the digital painting thread, http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=107217. Also your stuff tends to be flat, I suggest that you draw objects from life, that will give you a better understanding of form.

    Keep it up,

    Today was a good day for sketching, a bad one for studying.
    I'm loving the poses/faces page if I say so myself :p

    Some older stuff, all of it was for school projects.
    I hated doing the buildings.

    some more scribbles.
    They help me relax.
    I'll do some more extensive ones once my exams are over.

    Getting my wacom tomorrow, finally!

    here's some scribbles from on the train.






    Looks like I'm not all that good at drawing from imagination :/
    Any tips there anyone?

    Calm down, scribble less. The time you are spending on doing a fairly messy shading job could be used on improving the proportions of your portraits.

    Do you draw them in one go? If you do so, it could be worthwhile to take a break and then come back and continue. It ought to be easier to spot mistakes. Mirroring the image will also help on spotting stuff that isn't quite where it's supposed to be.
    Try and concentrate a little more on negative shapes, it's easier to get them right than the actual object, and consider the shape of these objects - it's your face (isn't it?), so you can touch it and feel how it is a 3d object. For example right now your eyes seem very large and a little too much symbol like, not like real eyes, round objects inside eyesockets.
    The plane practice should help, also a little anatomy information could aid as well, just to remember that there's a whole lot of stuff in the face that you need to observe.
    Maybe that's a little too unclear... There are a good few exercises for being able to see more accurately - Betty Edward's book "Drawing on the Right side of the brain" probably containing the most relaxed versions of said exercises... might be worth a quick look, I don't know.

    Thank you for your comment dmitri
    I'll try to slow down :-p

    I don't really measure enough either.
    I should really, before I start to shade, really compare my drawing to the original.
    Anyway, thank you for taking the time to comment.


    Here's another.

    It should be Ghandi.
    Edit, sorry about the crappy quality :/
    I'll take another picture in the sun tomorrow...

    EDIT2: there we go, much better.

    Desmond Tutu, worked out quite well.
    Decided to focus more on a proper construction & less on shading.
    Turned out to be a good choice.
