    KingElvis' Sketchbook 2013

Size:  160.3 KBHey guys,

    I been checking conceptart for over a year now and got my constant share of inspiration from so many great artists in here. I decided to get off my lazy ass and start showing my stuff to other people so that I can learn more by other peoples critique.
    Ill post as often as I can

    okay, this is a first bunch o stuff from the last days. There was a lot that wasnt worth showing anywhere, believe me. My actual goal or route that Im aiming for is drawing from my imagination mostly and i figured that in order to achieve that i have to copy things as well as draw em from memory or imagination. And i have to work on my discipline to really finish sketches to "drawings". This has been a real problem for me over the last year- all crappy sketches, no drawings...
    anyway, these are done from paintings and books i like and from imagination. tell me what ya think, and, talk to you guys later!

    so, this is todays outcome. im drawing after the schedule described in the Kimon NiKolaides book. Im not going to post teh contour drawings, because theyre all about the practise and the things you learn while drawing and dont look like anything anyway^^
    thise stuff here is done with the help of my little wooden stickfigure. I try to push the pose here and there so, when i try to draw the gesture its kindof a mixture of the Walt Stanchfield and Kimon Nicolaides approach.
    See ya later!

    Great start, I especially like your animal sketches. Nice work on the poses. Maybe it could help if you try doing a curve that defines the overall pose, first, and then build on that, because I think that some of them are a bit unbalanced.

    Also, I don´t think you should put down lines that don´t really add anything, it makes some of them look messy.

    Keep it up!

    Mumph: Thanks alot. about those messy lines: yeah, i know. im working on tat. but the thing is that those lines are my way to feel what im drawing and to..like trial and error, trying various lines until i see the "right" line...
    but I read about that the other day, that this is actually smth that should be done in my head, not on the paper and that other artists use ink markers and such in order to avoid those scribbly lines. Ill do that as well, so thanks for your post

    here are a few more that i did yesterday. tried smth else with gestures here...

    That is a lot of gesture drawing! Lots of poses!
    I especially like how you do the portraits and animal stuff aswell.

    ps: cool, there are "spar"s in germany too =)

    Man, that´s a lot of gesture studies don´t forget to practise everything else. I think you are doing a nice job.

    Yeah I totally get that it´s your way of drawing and I don´t see anything wrong with doing it like that but sometimes the lines still feels like they are just there for the "style". Hope you get what i´m saying.
    Yeah you could try doing gestures with as few lines as well but don´t abandon they way you are doing them right now, I don´t think there is any "right way", just the way that works for you and helps you learn and communicate what you are drawing.

    I think it´s good to try drawing in differant ways and try differant things so that you don´t get locked in just one way of doing things, I guess everything has it advantages and disadvantages. I think you are progressing, you have a nice feel for it.

    Those hand studies are nice but as you do with the poses, also build up the hands using construction lines, will help a lot and make you draw more confident lines.

    Keep it up man!

    I find your gesture studies amazing and very expressive; I know this comment isn't very helpful, but I couldn't stop to notice that
