    EBrown: Life through Lines

    Hello Concept Art community,

    I figured it was time I started some form of sketchbook on here to document myself and my pursuit of artistry. Up until about a year ago now, I was on the fast track to becoming an Engineer. Instead, like many of us do, I ended up turning around entirely in my wants and went the artistic route. Don't get me wrong, I was an excellent Engineer, but you have to be happy in what you do. I can't sit in a cubicle all day crunching numbers...so I guess I would rather sit in a cubicle all day and sketch/color.

    Right now I'm an artist at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online. Some may groan, others may clap, but it is what it is.

    I have to say, alot of these sketchbooks are remarkably intimidating. The skill and training that many of you have...its breath-taking. I aspire to your levels...which is why I would love as much input as I can get. I want to learn and grow, and really master the abilities to mimmic life on a canvas.

    First post won't be all that impressive. Here are some of my fledgling figure studies and life sketches, some were using a model and others were done with the assistance of Virtual Pose 3. Nice little piece of software.

    And here's some of the more 'finished' pieces I worked on as part of the first few assignments in Life Drawing. It's amazing to see how quickly you progress in a few short weeks with some practice and guidance.

    Hi! Welcome (meh, you should welcome me!) to the CA.

    We're soulmates Brownie (can I call you Brownie?). I was planning to become a geneticist but had a complete turn around during my last year at high school. I started my own sketchbook about a month ago from a scratch but I'm doing fine and even having some progress thus far.

    Nice start for a sb. The poses look really good. You've managed to capture the gestures and the form of the body well. Though I'm wondering those 15 and 30min sketches. I can't find any significant difference in the quality. ;o The 30min sketches look better ofc but still. The last guy looks good but he could rest much more on his right leg and be more relaxed.

    Keep it up!

    Delving into the anatomy of the human body, here are some studies I've completed. Arms and legs...though I'm certain I need to go into a huge amount of depth to understand them completely.

    Been busy!

    Today's updates are with our (maybe most dreaded) pieces of anatomy...the hands and feet.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement Caffeine and Arbinn

    Getting a little disheartening that I don't get many responses...

    Ah well, if you post it, they will come. Right?

    Did alot of portrait and head studies yesterday and today. Ended up doing some self portraits at the end. Here is a summary of my work.

    As always, input is appreciated. Especially tips on anatomy.

    Some proportions studies as well as some anatomical layout sketches.

    Just really trying to master the human figure right now...
