good start anatomy studies are always helpful
keep it updated
Radon: cheers will try my best to keep the pictures coming
Okay i thought i might as well post up more than just my studies, so your gonna get all my doodles as well, i do these usually while watching a movie or while I'm bored so not much concentration goes into them they just kinda appear on the paper
Any crits welcome
it's harder than i thought to try and post everyday, but I'll try my best to.
anyways this post was just gonna be studies but yesterday i managed to pick up my tablet and get a speed paint done, only about an hour at most, not my best but as somebody once said your only as good as your last drawing.
hope you likes
hey good start so far, i'm gona say the same thing i said to Radon, always approach anatomy study by first understanding the structure, trust me it will make everything alot easyer to understand and memorize
welll a simple way of explaining what structure is.. is to look for simple shapes. take the torso for example, it is just a simple oval shape. Understand the basic shapes of the body first before you start moving on to muscles and such.
If you really want to understand the human body, here is a web site with some book PDFs, look through them, they will teach how to approach drawing people http://processjunkie.blogspot.com/20...e_archive.html
lol no need to be sorry, it would be very hard to come up with interesting ideas everyday.
Good studies =D keep up the hard work
Thanks TheWishfulOne i will try and keep up the studies, i definitely seem to feel more confident after them.
okay so this post i did a study of faces portraying different emotions and the rest are random doodles.
gonna try and get some more speed paints done, really want to improve on those too.
Couldn't sleep and so thought I'd get something drawn, just a speed paint no more than about 20 - 30 minutes at the most of dossing, sorry about hopeless composition oh yeah I was wandering how to improve my shadows to get better depth, e.g. around the wall looks really bad
hey good studies, I would suggest that you do some studies on the planes of the face, and for the shadow, maybe a look over the concept of core shadow =D
hey guys sorry i can't post tonight i managed to leave my memory stick with all my scans on at my mates, i promise I'll try and get double the amount posted tomorrow.
If i have the energy later though I'll try another speed paint and work on my shadows and see how that comes along.
sexy ladies are nice =D i sense an improvement, but do not forget the inner structure ^_^, keep on rocking
hey man i took your idea to study the face began sketching and thought, my tablet is getting a tad lonely so this is how far i got before tiredness set in
sorry about weird colors, any crits welcome. oh and I'll keep posting this one till i get it finished.
so far i have spent 45 minutes maybe an hour on it but that's cause i hate faces with a passion.
hey guys sorry i haven't updated recently been moving some stuff from my dads old apartment. anyways got back and remembered my last piece so spent a couple minutes repairing some rather big mistakes i made, well here it is, i might post some more sketches later.
hey nice update, good call on those fixes, it looks alot better. Just gona point out 1 very little thing, the diagonal lines from the noise to the jaw(i think its called laugh lines?) should be closer to the mouth, that or the mouth may need to be a little bit wider. just my opinion hope that helps.
Aside from that keep up the good work ^_^
now that you point it out i can see where I've gone wrong thanks, well i should have some more sketches to post later if i can get my scanner, can't keep using my mates.
thanks again TheWishfulOne you been a big help
hey guys been busy over the past few days so didn't manage a daily post but i got some sketching done when i had free time.
sorry about the black smudgy crap, just thin paper and black markers don't really mix lol
thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.
you are very diligent with your studies and it shows. i really like the pieces you did with ink in posts 21 and 22. keep up the good work.
i would urge you to do more digital paintings, as that last one was excellent. if not digital, then at least try to work with color more.
i like your dedication to your studies. i must practice that more.
your digital painting is pretty good. haha, alot better than my first.
keep it up!
Cohen: thanks i think that was my best digital drawing so far, i gotta try something a bit more interesting this time round though.
marleau: cheers i do spent quite a bit of time doing studies but i think to many human ones i may need to try and get a bit of variation.
Thanks for all your comments I hope to get some more drawings up later
OK well I'm gonna try and get something digital done for my next post but here are some skull studies, a wonky portrait and some robots.
not exactly an interesting post but i promise this is the calm before the storm lol
i may have jinxed this
thanks for stopping by again. I enjoyed the running robots which really gave a good sense that they were running, which has always been a hard thing for me to portray. The first skull is a little odd at the top but I see you tried to work that line a few times so maybe the reference was weird. and as for the girl's face, I love the expression. very nicely done. simple yet effective.
Thanks again for the critiques. do as many as you like
Cohen: thanks mate, yeah i think i had some troubles with the skull lol, I'll pop by your sketchbook soon to see any updates
kk i thought I'd take a shot at redoing the happy robot thingy, i just started it from scratch because the original was pretty poor. hope you likes and any crits welcome
that car is looking good dude. Oh and about the happy robot. I had a dream like that picture about a year ago. except the robot was not happy and it was snowing. I think in my dream robots took over the world. Anyhow, just thought I would tell you that. haha.
some points on happy robot: the blue glow that lights your character doesn't make sense to me. I can't tell where it's coming from. also, on the ground the light just goes to the brick wall and stops dead in it's tracks. Another thing, I love the background color you have, especially where it meets the red. I think it would be really awesome if you continued the red into the background and just don't touch the area where the robot's shadow would be. So the gray acts as the shadow. just a thought or two. peace, and happy drawing.
