    LostFayth's sketchbook - October 17th

    Go to the last page for new stuff!

    Hey everybody,

    Before I start posting everything here I thought it was appropriate to introduce myself first.

    My name is Kailash, but my friends call me Kai. I'm a 20 year old art student in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. My major is Education in Art at the Willem de Kooning Academy. I hope I can be a part time teacher and a part time freelancing Illustrator one day. I know I have a long way to go, so any comments and critique's are greatly appreciated!

    As for my sketchbook....I think I have some catchup to do. That is why I'll also put some older work here, starting from 04.2007 until now. Take a look and leave a comment if you will

    Interesting work! My favorite is the girl's face right above the faerie. The robe next to her reminds me of the Org 13 robes :3
    Looks like your lineart is in good shape. I'd like to see more shading!

    It is indeed a org 13-ish robe. I like the character designs they used in kingdom hearts. The shading on a nude body is the hardest part for me. I spend hours to make the anatomy drawings and when I want to shade them I really don't know where to put the shades. I ordered some books of Bridgman and I hope that'll help me improve with my anatomy and shading of the human body.
    Thank you for your kind words!

    'Schoolwork'

    I posted some of my sketches I did in my spare time and I shouldn't leave out my work I made in art school right? I just finished my freshman year and I've improved a lot during that year.

    Here it goes....:

    part two

    Part two of my school work and my latest digital piece. I regret the fact that I can't work a lot in photoshop or painter due to my computer. But if I get a chance to do so, I do it....wish I could do it more though....

    Neat-o stuff here. The sketch of the boy (you?) is, imo, the best technically. You should do more of those - and of other people, too!
    I also really like your digital piece; I can tell you put a lot of effort into it. But again; you should do some anatomy studies.
    Keep em coming!

    Thank you so much Yeah that's me. I guess I should do more of those, the only thing is: I did it with pencils on a sheet of 50x65 cm and it took me almost 14 hours to complete it. But you're right, I should do this more and I will. My anatomy books will arrive this week (at least the shipping company told me it would) and then I'll do some anatomy studies. And in the meanwhile I guess I start a new self portrait drawing, but this time from a photo instead using a mirror.

    Thanks for taking the time to comment my work =) I really appreciate it.

    small update

    Wow....I've been really busy lately with school and helping my uncle move out to a new house. So didn't got really a lot of time to draw.

    I tried some new things. I never did a thumbnail drawing in my life. I saw that a lot of people did it here on conceptart so I thought to try it myself. I did the first three with photoshop and the others with a Copic BrushM Multiliner.
    Some of them are with reference (the kung fu fighters) but most of them are done by heart.
    The other thing I tried was to draw a new concept on the computer and proceed to something I like. After that I printed that drawing out and redrew it with pencil on a piece of paper.

    This are the results:

    Hey turtle!

    that last one's neck is a little thick (unless thats what you're going for)
    but good stuff, I enjoyed seeing it!

    While I may not be much of an artist, I am more than happy to help with MATHEMATICS! I have over 3 years of tutoring experience, and would love to help you out with anything up to and including calculus Also, as a mechanical engineer, if you want feedback on realist sci-fi or other technical critique, let me know, I'm happy to help!

    hey man great start, dont forget about the line weight when it comes to inking, varying the thickness of the line can really make forms pop out more.

    Keep working at it!

    Wow, the best sketchbook are always those where you can see an improvement.. and it's obviously there!
    The skull from august and from now - it got 3dimensional, it has a solid structure, correct proportions and your values are good. It's like you just learned a lot of different things at once.

    I like how you go from silhouettes to character, this is a cool process.
    Post more, I'm curious what you do over there at Rotterdam (that city is still amazing and it looks like the academy is teaching a lot of good things.)

    I just took a break to post this.
    But sometimes I also draw stuff

    Thanks a lot for your kind words

    You know, the art school here in Rotterdam is pretty okay, but I'm afraid I alone can't show what we learn over here since I'm doing an Art Teacher course and no Fine Art. I'm pretty sure FA-students get a lot more drawing and painting classes then I do. Most of my improvements are based on studies I did on my own. It may sound weird but it also helped to look in lots of sketchbooks of others, including yours. But sure, I'll post something up.

    I have a class called Beeldstudie, translated: Image Study. This semester we have 2D Image Study and we have to paint a (simple) painting every workday. Since the class has the name study in its name I decided to do paint studies. Right now I'm working on a series of black and white drapery studies in grey scale. I try to do something different every day to change the flavour a bit and keep me interested. The studies of the black fabric are my favourites. (btw...all are done in acrylics on 50 x 65 cm (19.7x25.6 inch) 120gr. paper.)

    I have to draw more. I spend most of my time looking at sketchbooks and art of others rather than drawing myself. xD

    P.S. Where in Germany do you go to art school?

    nice to see new pictures up
    that concept went a long way, very cool and how did you get so amazing superclean lines.

    I try to do something different every day to change the flavour a bit and keep me interested.
    yes, never do the same thing twice and keep your eyes open to not repeat yourself.. those drappery studies are a cool design exercise
    A little tipp: work further with the draperies but never use the same technique twice, use another brush (from gigantic to tiny) or a completely other medium.. everytime you do something one way it will show you new ways of using the other mediums..
    Our class made figure studies with charcoal for one year, it was always charcoal on paper. It got a bit boring, most students had a routine and always used the same approach, same kind of design or same kind of lines.
    The day when we were allowed to use other materials the class exploded with creativity and everyone was experimenting. As we returned to charcoal after that lesson the students were coming up with completely fresh and unique ways of using the charcoal. (ways that no one had found out before in that year of drawing with coal)

    Ik studier Illustratie hier in NL, niet in Duitsland. lol, I'm awful at written Dutch and I don't want to name my school, I'm a bit shy to get found by fellow students

    I just took a break to post this.

    That is a good tip indeed. I could use different brushes everyday, that'll keep me interested. The only problem right now is the medium. We have to use acrylics and if there is room for an other medium to use with the acrylics we are allowed to do so. The only catch is that it has to come forth out of the process of painting every day. So I'm kinda stuck with that for now.

    Hey I have an idea, maybe you can PM me the name of your school. Now I'm rather curious where you study here

    Anyways, I'll update with more drapery studies soon....

    Last weeks assignment for me was to do some more accurate value studies of a white cotton cloth, since the other ones were to dark. This weeks assignment is to continue on that road and maybe use a white piece of clothing like a cotton-down shirt.

    wow when I looked at the first images in your sketchbook I was a little hesitant about being on a team Chow with you but the improvement you've shown in this thread alone is incredible. The linework for those last two characters is really really good (posts 13 and 19). Your anatomy I think is still very slightly off in a few areas and your faces are a little more anime influenced than I prefer but like I said I think youre really good and Im sure working together we'll be able to find a nice blend of our two styles.

    Hehe, I'm sorry, been busy with a lot of stuff.

    This update is specially for you Kiera.

    I've applied the advice you gave me regarding my workspace and here is my new workspace :
