    Sketchbook de joeep

    Hi,
    now my sketchbook is online - a scary thought...
    I hope to improve by and by so that one day people are pleased with what they find here in my sketchbook.

    Some random faces from imagination, and plant studies from nature in black prismacolor.
    Pencil figure drawing gestures from life and studies from reference.
    And finally two attempts on digital landscape sketches from imagination.

    On that last sketch, I love the poses for 1, 2, and 4 - especially the defiant, haughty head tilt of 4. The third looks off-kilter - between the leaning of the body and the heaviness of the costume at the shoulders, she looks like she's about to tumble to her side.

    Get those hands right! I know these are quick sketches, but make sure what few strokes you put down for the hands are good ones - the hands for these should convey an elegance and femininity which is so evident in the rest of the figures. The third figure especially falls into the "mitten hand" syndrome, where you end up with what looks like mittens rather than hands with individual and distinct fingers.

    There's also another trap which you should avoid, and that's the "hiding hands" trap - placing them behind the figure, like in the anatomy study in one of your earlier posts. Oftentimes it's not a conscious choice, but I remember always getting called on it when I was in school - "why are you hiding her hands?" or "why are the hands behind his back?"

    I know, hands are tough - God knows, they're tough, and something which should be studied/practiced a lot...but not impossible to master, you just have to keep drawin' 'em...

    Good start, work on your proportions and anatomy though.

    Thanks for your replies Nam & madhatter106.
    I took a break between figure 2 and 3 of my last post and did not realize how off number 3 looked until I finished figure 4. A frustrating moment.
    You are perfectly right about the hands - I find them difficult to draw. They need practice. So do proportions and anatomy
    Passed week I did a bad job on improving that, mainly because I was lazy :/ Not good...

    Only a small update now: ballpoint pen sea monster sketch scanned from my sketchbook and a photography (no DIN A3 scanner available) of a ballpoint pen line drawing of some flying vehicle.

    You got some pretty cool sketches here. I'm really digging the way you draw vehicles and spaceships. I can see that your figures and anatomy studies are getting better also. Keep up the good work ;-)

    Thanks LECO!

    Nothing from imagination this time. A few pencil hands, figures and quick sketches on the go of some alleys (pencil and warm gray marker).

    BACK

    Huuuu, had some immensely time consuming studying due. Not really an excuse. Nor is my laziness...
    Anyways, I'll give it another try and start off with the last two sketches I did, and even scanned (without posting them). It's been almost a year since...
    I am going to post an update with some newer stuff later.

    First Update

    Ok, a first update of what little I did between now and last summer.

    1st picture is a ballpoint pen sketch of a vehicle concept.
    2nd picture is a terribly clean photoshop rendering exercise (background is a photo)
    3rd picture: Some images of a storyboard (copic marker).
    4th and part of 5th picture: quick marker development of a vehicle, leading to bottom of 5th picture: photoshop rendering
    Picture 6 and 7: ballpoint pen/ marker sketches of some vehicle concepts.

    windboi: Thanks, yes I'll try to keep posting - really!

    Great SB. I love it until now. Your pencils make me envy you, hah. I love your use of markers, especially those warm grey sketches. Good job with the creativity on the rest! Keep posting! I will be sure to come back

    Oh, and if you can, drop by my sketchbook, it would be an honor
