    BubbaGump's dump of stuff

    Please critique!!!

    ----------

    These are all sketches from life, except the last one, which is a bogus comics cover I made after watching The Dark Knight. It's based on a Bruce Timm commission. Christopher Nolan is the sex!

    Hi! And welcome to CA. I'm new here too.

    What first hits my eyes with your sketches is that they seem to be, well, chaotic. There's so many lines it makes it tiring to watch these. The basics are OK. I like how the hills look despite their simplicity and the pic inside a car is nice (lol @ mirror ).

    The Batman pic is cool. Needs more shading but it's cool.

    Just keep posting. And welcome.

    Thanks for commenting! The shading is chaotic because for obvious reasons (in a passing car) I had to do them as fast I could and I just wanted to catch the essence of what I was drawing. And I had an animation cel in mind when coloring the Batman cover so minimality was always the key.

    Here's a couple more. These are just misc. sketches from magazines. Just for shading and hatching practice.

    I didn't know you were drawing moving cars. Ok.

    The very last picture has a funny face.

    Btw. Instead of trying to quickly shade like that (bunch of lines instead of smooth volume) try to take some time just to train shading. Draw a cylinder and decide where the light comes from (the very 1st pic in my sketchbook).

    Arbinn: Thanks. I used to practice with cylinders and spheres to figure out how to render shadows and such, but sometimes my pencil just goes crazy!

    Here's a couple sketches of my left hand. A bit more classical than I'm used to doing. The pencil turned out funky!

    These look better than the previous ones.

    EDIT. Deleted a part from my post after a second survey.

    Arbinn: Thanks. I'll practice both classical and sketchier, more experimental stuff to balance out. I just don't think there's a lot of life in many classical drawings.

    Jeff Bartzis: Thanks a lot!

    These are some OLD animal practices from pics. I know, I know I got to go the zoo soon...

    firstblood: Thank you. I'll definitely give him a look. Those Art Students League people are crazy! I really liked Nicolaides' book but the schedule was impossible for me (school, etc). His chapter on gestures was incredibly informative though.

    More animals (really old).

    I really like those animals, they are well captured.
    Mmmmm...I wish I was 15 again, with soooooo much time ahead for learning! Don't lose your time, Bubba

    hey, good start there. It's good that you draw mostly from life. Draw from pictures, either photos or any other thing you'd like, just as much for now. What you need currently is to get a grip of the real proportions of a thing and copying or much better studying (which means use your brain when drawing from something) something motionless will give you an easier acces to those. If you draw from life you're most probably to add distortion to the image because of your constant change of perspective when observing. As a by product you should also care for cleaner lines. It's something that developes over time but it won't do any bad if you're aware of it as early as possible (unlike myself...)

    tayete: Glad you like 'em. But sometimes even I think 15 is a little late. I just started drawing seriously last year (before that it was just copying pictures from comics) and when I see some of the 14 year olds here and what they're doing ...it blows my mind away.

    buzz: Thanks. Just keep drawing!

    Kurjuus: Drawing from photos helps, it just doesn't have the dimension that something "real" right in front of you does. And clean lines pwn! They just...don't feel as lively as sketchy stuff does. My goal is to eventually get into animation (storyboarding, etc.) and it feels radically different from the concept/fantasy stuff (which borders more on illustration and finished work) that I see here. I practice drawing and inking my comics every day so I have decent knowledge of clean lines neccessary for reproduction. I just want to branch off from that and do little gesture-practices to capture lines of action and movement. Hope you understand!

    ----------------------

    Speaking of gestures, I wanted to practice some quick ones.
