    Sketches, studies, mistakes and sins

    I decided to put more into, and get more out of, my sketchbook. The usual routine of showing my sketchbook to my teachers does not really urge me to work harder, so maybe it works to start a sketchbook thread here. Feel free to comment, criticize, suggest, reject, scream, kill or tear apart. Or just enjoy.

    talking to your teacher doesn't help? that's something that always used to help me. now that i've left university, CA has to fill that gap really. you'll miss the tutor and pupil support once it's gone, unless they talk nonsense or something..

    anyway, good sketches. from life? try to pick out details next time. these are good general sketches of form and movement, but try to do contours or something..facial details etc. and then hide when they make eye contact. lol.

    My teachers are helpful, but as an animation student I am supposed to focus on quick studies, capturing the pose and the energy; class poses never last longer than about 20 minutes. I hope to develop a more detailed style.

    it does help to have a broad approach even if you want to go into animation. also, you probably know all this but for animation you need to develop a good economy of line. these drawings so movement on a sketchy level, but not on an anatomical level.

    You have a very unique style! The only thing I can see to point out is that, in looking at your heads and hands, the approach is very stylized, so some of the features are skewed or look out of place. Perhaps you could try practicing constructing them (such as bones, muscles, or just working on the general work beneath the features)? This is something I have a lot of trouble with as well. Other than that, your sketches, especially your quick sketches from life, are so amazing!

    Great works! I feel pretty inspired by your gesture drawings from first post right now... Ink pen and watercolor?

    @navigatoria: I spent a lot of time on quick sketches, and have only recently started to move towards detailed studies. I often feel that details fall out of place, but I am confident this comes with practice. Thanks for your encouraging words!

    @StephanDraws: these early gestures are done in fountain pen, and water brush with diluted ink. Thanks!

    Girls and other animals. I am working on adding value to my inking without adding big black blobs (BBB) or itchy scratchy hatching. Let's see what works.
