    Imaginary's sketchbook - tiny update no.2

    Hai there!

    Man... It's hard to write an introduction...

    //Some hours later....//

    I've been, like so many others, lurking here for quite some time looking at all the pretty pictures painted by all of the really awesome artists on this site.

    But that stops now!... The lurking... not the whole looking at pretty pictures thing.

    I realized last year that doodling a bit now and then won't really get you anywhere, so I went and bought a whole pile of books on anatomy and started doing various studies. However I'm not drawing often enough so progress is slow, hence i start this sketchbook to keep me drawing regularly and of course to get valuable advice from fellow artists.

    My goal is to update every day and keep doing so for as long as I can. I'm unemployed at the moment so it shouldn't be too hard to do so at least until i get a job and when I do get a job I'll try my best at updating daily anyway.


    To start things off i did some gesture drawings from Posemaniacs (not gonna post all of them) followed by head/skull studies from Stephen Peck's Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist and last but not least i drew some faces, some from ref some just from my imagination.

    A new day which means new studies. Today i did the usual 60 1min gesture studies (posting all but the last page, were only 2 on it anyway), some Bammes studies, Bridgman studies, figure studies (only 3 though ) and finally more random faces from ref and some not.

    I could use some suggestions on good studies to do btw, so if anyone have any suggestions leave a reply or pm me.

    Man i need to work on value... and faces...

    I've found my proportions suck so I'm drawing heads from life, capturing the structure, using my imagination to get where the features of the skull are and applying them to the angle/position said skull is in. It helps to understand the proportions of the skull and develop a sense of structure.

    You've got the right attitude and you're doing the right stuff, keep it up!

    Great work on the life drawings, in particular the skeletal anatomy of the hand. Keep it up!

    Nice stuff from Posemaniacs... that stuff helps out a lot. Some things that might help your studies might be to do some Self-portraits. I want to do some too, but I haven't yet

    Promising start! You've got some nice studies from life and pose maniacs, but I see only the quick poses from pose maniacs so it may be good to capture quick gestures from life.
    I tend to go to cafe's and similar public places and quickly draw the people around me capturing the body language etc.
    Again, great start to the SB. Looking forward to seeing more!

    Chaser226: Thanks! And ye, i'll keep it up, definitely.

    DeeLock: Thank you!

    Max Challie: Yea, my proportions pretty much suck too, which reminds me of that i should probably do studies on proportion.

    Novacostle: Thanx!

    anibawl: Yea, i've been thinking of doing that for some time now but i just never get around to it... who knows, maybe i'll start a thread in the self-portrait board tomorrow.

    Slothboy: Yea, that's actually on my to-do list already... just don't know when i'll start with it though.

    So today i did the 60 1min gestures (maybe i should stop posting all of em, takes up a lot of space lol), leg and arm studies from Sheppards Drawing the Living Figure, Bridgman studies, Peck studies and some eye studies which i drew with an office marker.

    I need to draw more from life, should start looking for a course i guess, oh yea.. i was supposed to do drapery/value studies, damn. Faces!

    I'm so motivated now it's ridiculous!

    Ohh great update! The quick studies' proportions have improved and seem more confident.
    The tonal studies are looking good too. Looking forward to seeing more!

    So, four days running huh? Awesome.

    Slothboy3000: Hehe, i'm improving little by little.

    Today i started a self potrait thread which you can find here. On top of that i started my day with the usual quick studies, followed those up with some Bammes studies, then some Bridgman studies and finally studies from Peck.

    This is a way awesome update. Your posemaniacs are becoming less and less sketchy which is great! Also your studies of the arms and eyes and what not with the marker look really great too. Keep it up. I'm going to check your self portrait right now ^_^

    anibawl: Thank you very much! It really feels like im improving too... it's a great feeling. ^_^

    So, i've been away all day today and i'm going out again soon which means i haven't had time to draw as much as i wanted to.

    Finally reached 300 quick poses and after that i did som really fast Bridgman studies and then i did some studies from Bammes that turned out really crap... Oh! drew another self potrait too.

    Maybe i should start doing some digital studies? Haven't touched my wacom since like.. april.

    Yea so anyway, have a nice weekend everyone! I'll spend mine drawing stuff from life.
