    | Seth's sketches |

    Another sketchbook, another journey. Lets see where this one takes me. Feel free to critique, there most welcomed.

    here Ill post works from still life's. I'm Going to start simple, then slowly work my way to complex still life's. Hopefully learning about Lighting, composition, value, form, perspective etc along the way.

    Each day I will pick an Object to Sketch. I will use pencil first, then off to digital. I may do some traditional Acrylic study's as well. I will try to do more pencil then digital work, I feel my pencil and observation skills there are lacking compared to my digital. I will try to tighten up my lines/rendering in the pencil as best as I can.

    Thanks for taking the time to drop by and read.

    Seth

    It begins.

    Hey this looks like its going to be a very cool sketchbook. So far with what you have it appears you have a exceptional amount of skill. You have done a really great job in showing the materials through the highlights and texture. I will definatley come back here later and check out what you have done! The only gripe I have is with the digital paint of the boot the red cloth seems to draw attention away from the focus.

    jimboslutstien• Thanks for dropping by and taking a look. I agree with you there about the cloth taking away from from the main Vocal. I was going to change up the cloth today but I wanted to paint a bit more with it. I might change it tomorrow to a dark blue.

    Arghh, I had so much trouble with this boot. I must have re painted it at least 5 times and I am still way way off. Shows how much I need to learn Good thing I started life drawing.

    Here are some scribbles. I can not believe how hard it's for me to draw shoes.

    Texahol• About an Hour and a bit. Once I nail down the Lines, and values on the sketch it does not take me to long to throw colors on top.

    Blah, Haha. I need to study perspective, and proportion..

    wonderful pencilled apple on the first post!
    I noticed that some of your sketched pieces look better than some
    of your painted pieces, the painted ones look a bit too dark sometimes..
    like the boots.
    But still, you have skills!

    I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!

    Aveh• Thanks for drooping by.

    the ANGRY filipino• Noted thanks.

    I decided to put the life study's aside and whole hearty dedicate my time to the Human figure, and perspective. I want to be able to draw every muscle every angle, from memory with out reference. I am working through Bridgman Constructive anatomy right now. Let's see what I can learn from him.

    I have a soft spot for abandoned buildings- so nice photography. I like the idea of posting an observation sketch in your book quite frequently. I also like to see that your mixing this book up with other pieces of artwork. Nicely done.
