    MUJI Sketchbook 08

    sketches found in my MUJI sketchbook, from April 08 until May08. Starting a Sketchbook threat in the hope that will get feedbacks, helps, comments etc. from everyone, thanks in advance.

    they are mindless doodles mainly or what's been burning in my mind & need to put it down on paper.

    Cool stuff! Like the Karmen Raider sketches. As far as crits I would say work on drawing some more hands and faces from real life.

    Keep the post coming!

    Excellent SB. The horses in particular are great. Try to tone down the scribbling, even though it works in a fair few of your sketches. But when they're clear, like the hands in the last post, they're just perfect.

    thanks, my thoughts the same. drawing from life is always useful, a compromise would be from photo reference?

    most of the scribbling were there bcos of lack of light sketches lines or lack of skills (either in subject matter or posing or anatomy or something else )? some, started off too dark and with compounding amendments makes it look scribbley? I'm guessing the "clearer" ones were there bcos of either going over with another pen (like the hands, 2 or 3 days later) or tracing of the silhouette from the previous page in a later date (like the horse on the last post, Untitled-3.jpg or the face from the first post, Untitled-9.jpg). In future, will try to work with more lighter construction lines first to work on basics like anatomy, pose and see if it works and add darker lines to better define the subject matter later, and hopefully that will sort-out the scribbley effect

    here's more after a night's sleep and rest from scanning frenzy, sketches done from mid July 08 till now. Again crits & comments are very much welcomed

    Good job on the latest batch o work. Yes i do think photo ref is a good compromise if the real thing cant be in front of you.

    thanks to in-flight magazine, the 6 hours flight from beijing to kuala lumpur becomes bearable as plenty of photo ref materials. a good study later reveals that i have tendency to over elongate nose sections, not just this photo ref, but others as well, will take note in future.

    thanks, more work and back to fundamental drills and systematic exercises to improve on that faculty.

    love the pen work, really like the flow it gives your pieces.

    quick question - what type of pen do you use? I tend to use biro pens, but to my understanding this isn't really the done thing?

    I love all of your sketches! I like how you stick with one pose for a few sketches, but keep it fresh by drawing different people.
    Your drawings of faces and hands are shaping up nicely! I want to see more of them!

    And the horses are great. I also love the batman drawings.

    Awesome work!
