    my small attampt in art

    hi, everyone, i have done my post graduation in 3d animation with maya and max softwares, but that did not interested me so i gave up 3d all together (because i found that one can't be animator without drawings) and thus shifted towards drawing and sketching. i am absolutely new to this field and from past six months i am learning art. i am posting what all i have learned. please give me your expert comments and blessings (i need both) on my work. i know i am too week in art and there is still a long way to go.
    thank u all.

    try sitting outside and doing some quick 30 second gesture drawings of the people around you before you draw something serious. It helps you loosen up and to get a feel for how the body moves. Also try some contour drawings where you can't lift your pencil form the paper. Blind contour drawings also help.

    it looks like you want to be able to draw the human figure from imagination, my suggestion would be to stop by Mentler's "Book of Bones" and read through the whole thread, its a gold mine of information

    You shouldn’t worry about the lack of replies. The sketchbook forum is huge and the odd thread is easily missed.

    To your sketches. It looks like you’re treating them as a preliminary to rendering in 3D. That’s not a bad thing as you are managing to show volume, and you’re getting loads more than quite a few people here. Not sure about the tits and faces though. Draw more from life and observe what’s around you.

    I’m learning animation by myself and doing it completely the wrong way round, so I can talk.

    You need to work on proportion, you're people are a bit elongated here and there. Particularly the arms, and the legs are some times too short it'd seem. So you need to watch out for that, but I'd have to agree that gesture drawing is what you need to do. Do lots of it, remember 30 seconds to a minute only! You're try to draw, not make pretty pictures. Pretty pictures come later

    Here are some books you can try looking for:

    Bridgman's Complete Guide To Drawing From Life - George B. Bridgman

    Force: Dynamic Life Drawing For Animators - Michael D. Mattesi

    Character Animation Crash Course - Eric Goldberg

    The third has a cartoon style, but the principles there can apply to realism too.

    Good luck

    Usually threads with interesting thumbs with high contrast are visited a lot more. Unno, just the way I see it. If you comment a lot and visit a lot of sketchbooks people will start to notice you, it's really give to get. :]

    Your full-body stuff is pretty cool, so many! They're looking pretty good, keep it up. I'd suggest for now working more on faces and portraits. Notice eyes especially, and how they look when the head is turned 3/4 or profiled. ;] Keep it up, you can only get better.

    dude, you look like your well on your way. Take a look at this:
    http://idrawgirls.blogspot.com/2008/...tman-dark.html
    it's got some good basic rendering and drawing principles, also something that i do all the time is draw from life it really helps.
    well done on the what your sketches above they are a very good starting point and always remember to enjoy what your doing and not measure yourself up against anyone else its a personal goal and not a contest.
    keep it up will look again and thank you so much for your comments.
