    Soundpath's ------- Sketchbook

    Hi there, thanks for checking out my sketchbook! My name's Brad, I'm 23, from south Jersey, USA. I've been drawing seriously for about 2 years. Ive done a lot of stuff for video game mods and the like, but recently decided to give that up and concentrate solely on improving my skills.
    I feel like my greatest weaknesses at the moment are anatomy, composition, and lighting, so expect to see a lot of figures, characters, environments, movie studies, and things of that nature. I draw everyday, so I plan on updating this quite often.

    I'm looking to learn, so I'd really appreciate any thoughts, comments, critiques you might have.

    Anyway, here's some stuff I've done over the past couple of months:

    These are some character sketches I did today, sorry for the bad photo quality, I'll use better lighting next time. I might bring some of these into photoshop and paint them.

    nice stuff, soundpath.
    keep up the good work and studies.

    also, if you're looking for help with human anatomy...Loomis is fantastic
    just search "andrew loomis pdf" on google and he has five or six books online. they're all fantastic resources

    Your colour and lighting to me looks quite sound in my opinion. A book I'd recommend looking at for anatomy is Drawing the human head & figure by Jack Hamm. It's a good starter and gives an overall good understanding of anatomy, if you're looking for resources. One thing I noticed is that I think you may want to work on alternating between soft and hard edges, especially when dealing with metal reflections.

    You're doing great work I must say and that first image is very eye catching! Keep up the good work.

    hah, If lightning and composition are your weaknesses then I don't want to see your strong suits..
    No seriously I think especially the first one with the deer in forest and that landscape with dead trees look really moody and well planned to me. Like them a lot.
    No honestly I'd like to see more work from you.

    Hey, thanks so much for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I've got a few more paintings in the works, so I should have some new stuff up soon. In the mean time, here are a few sketches and speeds I've done recently.


    @GDonaldson: Thank you, that one character with the hat is for a mod.

    @ 007-r0b3r7: Thank for telling me about The Andrew Loomis books, I hadn't heard of those before. I downloaded some of them and from what I've read they do indeed look like an excellent resource.

    @ digitalinkrod: thanks, I appreciate the support man, cheers.

    @ BlindRat: thanks for the critique, edge control is something that I don't think about as much as I should, I'll be working on that. Thanks for the heads up about the anatomy books as well, I'll check it out.

    @ monotony: haha, thanks for the kind words, means a lot. You have an awesome sketchbook by the way.

    Hi, some nice enviro stuff - I think your figures could do with some work, especially the poses, look stiff and unatural - hundreds of 30sec figure sketches will help!!
