Thread: Hadesdream's scribbles
July 9th, 2008 #1
So I've been drifting around here for a while and am finally sucking it up and starting the sketchbook thing.
I've been drawing on and off for as long as I could remember but let myself get defeated, and end up starting over and over. I want to come back to art for good. I'm still not completely sure how when I suffer from some crazy brain fog but that's where this thread comes in. I'm using it to have something to be accountable to.
Anyway all comments and feedback welcome especially anything about regaining focus.
Besides the painting and the first scribble the rest were from today.

Hi. Good start. I would suggest trying to loosen up while you are drawing, instead of doing short, hatchy lines try to do longer ones, it will help you maintain the energy in your drawing.

Bleh...enormous rut. I'm pretty sure I draw worse now than I did when I was in grade school. I have no ideas. And I seem to be lacking any art sense I may have had. I'm afraid to give my input on anything I see because I don't trust my own judgment...and I find myself pointlessly ranting on a aforum...good times. Oh well...more scribble...that was pretty forced.

Cool paintings. ^^
I like your little creatures. Who are they, what do they do? Asking questions like that might help you if you are stuck for what to draw. If you are still stuck you can always try writing down objects and animals and all sort of things on paper, putting them in a jar and then you pull a couple out and that is what you have to draw . . .

Welcome to the group! Very glad to see you decided to stick it out for the long haul. First off it seems you rush yourself a bit too much. In post #2 it seems like the last 2 drawing you had a lot more of focus invested into them. If you feel that your work is sufficient enough to your liking stop and take a deep breath and recollect your thoughts. It will make you tense up big time and just further hinder you.
To respond to your comment about being in a rut... get out and do some life drawing or do what Blythe mentioned. This will give your imagination fuel to play with these shapes and forms and understand how they work so when you are drawing from scratch you have a spring broad to draw something really freakin cool.
Cool faceplate paintings! Keep posting away and feel free to ask me what ever kinda art questions you got.

Blythe: Most of the odd little creature scribbles were trying to work toward the C.O.W. Unicorn Hunter. I rambled off a pretty elaborate concept and was trying to sort out the mechanics of such a creature. Still have it rolling around in my head. Thank you.
Kaffinated:I definitely rush. I feel like I'm in a race against my memory and loathing...something has to hit paper before I forget or get frustrated, which tends to lead to crumpled paper. Horrible way to go I know. Thanks for the input!
Ok so here are some short timed sketches using posemaniacs. I think I should stick to 5 minute ones for now...30 seconds and even two minutes seemed a bit too quick right now. I think it's been taking me a little longer to wrap my head around what I'm looking at. Though maybe pushing is the better alternative...I'm not sure.

Them cars are some nice looking cars! good perspective to em and the ladies too. 2 little things i did notice though front wheel on last car looks a lil twisted and maybe some shadows would be nice so there not floating in space

Fly: Thanks...the wheel is a bit funky.
Ok, so first is a drawing I've been ignoring for a while that I decided to fiddle with a bit tonight. Then there's a few sketches for a piece I just cant seem to work out. It's supposed to be a couple killing themselves together, this is a request based on some song lyrics, and I'm not sure I'm capturing the mood. The one I actually obtained models for after doing the first cheesy sketch but I think I like the more somber feel of the last rough. Opinions?

I really like the dynamic of the girl and the dragon and I really don't want to pass any judgment on it until I see more shading. One thing I will say, it seems like her breast is too perfectly in place, and it might look better (more natural?) if it was a bit less firm, sort of draped onto the bed, if that makes sense.
Anyway, I really like where you're going with that other drawing—I'd love to see the last one more refined.
Also, thanks for turning me on to posemaniacs!
