    Tomaka's Sketchbook - Updated Dec. 20/09!

    Hello all!

    So here I am, new to ConceptArt, and ready to share what I've done (even if I feel more than a little inadequate compared to most of you folks out there).

    I've only ever taken two university level art classes and one continuing education course, everything else was self taught. My definite aim here is to improve upon my current techniques and to learn some new ones!

    My main work is done in pencil and Photoshop, and I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new Wacom Intuos3 9x12 tablet, which should be arriving tomorrow.

    I am ready to take any and all of your constructive criticism, so fire away!

    One of the things that I love to draw most is faces. I don't know why, but I adore the complexities of the human face and I take pride in my ability to portray different expressions successfully. The following are a few face studies, as well as a few other random things. Enjoy!

    The dog is very nice.
    But your knowledge about anatomy is not the best. Your lines are nice, learn anatomy an rise to the next level.

    Hey you I'm particularly moved by the spiral-bound piece with the nose-people. Those are so full of life!

    It really looks like you're defining your ability to draw what you're seeing - and this is essential to being able to draw what you can only see in your mind. That said, when you're sketching a face or a body, think of your pencil as carving the three-dimensional shapes into the paper. I like to think of organic shapes as a bunch of grapes being held together by spaghetti noodles. I've got a strange way of thining about things, to be sure, but hopefully you found that helpful.

    I can't wait to see what comes next

    Thank you for stopping by my sketchbook, btw. I hope to see you again soon!

    Bazzu: Thanks! I'm glad that I'm receiving constructive criticism. I've begun to spend more time working on drawing the intricacies of anatomy.

    Kinjura: Interesting tip! I'll trying thinking more about grapes when I draw


    Here is a sketch I worked on last night.

    Great start for your sketchbook. I'm really enjoying all your faces, they're very expressive. Got to a agreed with Bazzu, your lines are great, but your anatomy isn't that far off, it just needs practice.

    The dog and the last one are my favorites, but I think the most creative ones are the faces made with squiggles as your base.

    Keep it up and good luck, I really want to see more!

    I'd rather leave this blank

    Very nice textures in that second image in the first post, maybe that one would work better without the black contour. Nice studies as well.

    I like that robot and that one would really benifit from some texturing, maybe making it all rusty and a more dynamic pose or another perspective would help. I also think there are a bit to many forms, I think one form should be dominating.

    I like your faces, just think about the hair, it doesn´t look that way in real life with every strand that obvious.

    I hope this helps!

    Hello everyone!

    It's been a while since I last updated, but in that time I've gone on some pretty whirlwind adventures!

    But now I'm home and drawing again. Over the next while I will be uploading some recent work.

    To start, here are some creature head designs.

    Here are a few female studies I did. Some of them turned out all right, but you can tell I'm still learning about the proper proportions.

    Is the first picture supposed to depict a Corythosaurus?

    Everything is better with dinosaurs.
