    [insert creative title here] - katinki's studies

    hey!


    this is just another newbie's sketchbook...

    a few words about me: i'm a graphic design student - but i realised that while that is something that i realy like to do i would love to be an illustrator. i always liked to draw and paint but i somehow abandoned that in favour of graphic design a few years ago.... and now i regret that...
    thus i decided it is time to seriously start drawing again. learn the basics. now.


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

    here are a few studies from the last couple of days:

    anatomy studies after gottfried bammes. i started at the feet and am now slowly working my way up the body.... / some posemaniac poses. mostly about 45 sec. my line quality is horrible! / and an apple still life. that was fun but i am way too slow!

    pamukluprenses & buzz thank you for your kind words! i didn't really expect a welcome at all between all those magnificient books...



    today i continued my anatomy studies:
    one leg drawing, posemaniac poses and then i moved on to the pelvis. strange form! i'm still trying to understand it... i copied bammes' geometric studies on it and tried a digital study of the bone. but i was that concentrated on the painting (it is like my second serious digital painting attempt after the apple yesterdy) that i got parts of the structure wrong. especially the part where the spine attatches is wrong .
    nevermind - tomorrow will be another chance!

    Such great anatomy studies! You really have it down well -- even that apple looks delicious. I could learn a few things by keeping an eye on your work. Hope you don't mind. :3

    whiteC thank your for the nice comment! colours are a topic i have to work more on. so many things to tacle...
    ohnojenny thank you!

    meh - i'm not very satisfied today... i didn't do as much as i should. a sheet of posemaniac gestures again and two onions.
    they taught me how much i don't know! the colours are nothing like the real ones, they looked more vibrant and more dull at the same time... and i failed to convey their volume, too. have to try again. - any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    Holy smacks, I feel some great studies in here. That's just wonderful. Very accurate and deep, as WhiteC wrote, nice sense for three-dimensionality.

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook!

    PS: Kann verstehen, wenn man den Illustrator-Kram und den Grafik-Kram unterschiedlich wichtig ansieht. Meine Erfahrung ist allerdings, dass es sich alle paar Jahre wieder ändert. Freut mich auf jeden Fall, mal andere Grafiker hier zu sehen!

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook!

    Okay -- first off I'd like to say I am very amazed with how many figures you can fit in one page. :3 It almost looks like they've been drawn straight onto the computer with how clean the lines are. What are your dimensions?
    Onions taste good -- and yours aren't looking half bad! I like the tops especially, got the ruffle nicely done, but they do look a bit flat... especially the one on our right. Like, after the detail to the top, which looks pretty 3d, it just flattens out. I do like that greenish hue on the left one, though...
    Keep it up!

    You've got some great potential here, it shows a lot in your onions, apple and pelvis paints! You've got a good grasp on form but your quick figures tend to have long torsos (or short legs, whichever you prefer better haha) but that's really common from what I've noticed and easily corrected! Keep it up, you're off to a wonderful start.

    jabo thank you! i wouldn't call illustration and garphic design differently important - i love both! i just focused on graphic soley during the last years and feel that i need to catch up drawing-wise... and i want to use my holiday for that (/and of course continue afterwards). - i just realized that we don't live far apart, i'm in offenbach and study at the hfg - that's funny!

    ohnojenny thanks again - i hope today's onion is better... regarding the gesture drawings, they are done digitally, thus a bit of scaling and organizing was done afterwards. and the lines aren't clean at all - you just see them at a quarter of the actual size...

    IanE thank you and good catch with the long torsos! i tried to think of it during today's session but i fear they aren't much better. i concentrate so hard to get the torso right that it somehow gets too important in my mind and thus too big on the sheet. tomorrow will be better, i promise!



    standard program today: one sheet of posemaniac poses and one digital still life. vegetables get bit boring... perhaps i'll dare to differ from bumskee's model tomorrow!

    hey, that's a very good start you have there, very nice studies indeed. I like the last onion a lot- very nice and clean render and more "3d" than the first- the problem with them was maybe that there is not much difference between the shadows and the lit side of the onion in value and color temperature, in the 2. you have darker and cooler shadows.I still see some short legs in the posemaniacs drawing.
    Keep it up and thanks for visiting my sb.

    Heh, HFG. Da wollte ich alternativ hin, falls es mit Wiesbaden nix geworden wäre. Mittlerweile hab ich das Gefühl, ich hätte direkt nach Offenbach gehen sollen Etwas rückschrittlich konservativ hier. Aber mal sehen, ist ja erst das erste Semester. Naja whatever. Vielleicht können wir uns ja mal treffen. Ich meine wenn du willst.
