    Rook's Sketchbook

    Hi I'm just starting my first sketchbook and hoping everyone can give me some advice/critiques on what I should work on and which direction I should be headed. Thanks everyone, I'll be updating regularly with things I've been messing around with.

    Way to go! Study more subjects of art and update this daily! Try to use more solid lines. You should also read some books concernign anatomy, figure drawing, etc

    Yesterday and I plan on continuing on it today, I did a lot of the tutorials on Drawspace.com. This is what I came up with, I plan on going onto each different section and getting each of the concepts they discuss down. Then moving onto life drawing and then figure.

    Am I wasting my time with that website or is there a more effective path I should be taking. I think it's working but my opinion means jack haha.. looking forward to feedback.

    A few more drawings.

    That girl with the dreads had the most beautiful hair.. 'cept she left before I could really get the whole outline so had to wing some of it.

    I've started working with Andrew Loomis' figure drawing book. So I haven't been posting since I've been working with a lot with just getting the shapes down so a lot of it has been in 2H-4H leads and my scanner can't pick it up... But I'll be posting soon so hang tight!!!

    Yes, the second set of pencil work was much more interesting. Keep studying your pencil work, and switch to softer leads, like 2 to 4B.

    Thanks Oomgawa!

    Yeah for a lot of them I'm just trying to get them out quick so haven't been going back and finishing them. But I'll try and get some more finished works up later today.

    Hey here's what I've been working on the past couple days. Started getting into the mannikin frame (I'm sure that looks familiar to a lot of you). Plus another still life, wasn't happy with my other still lifes so didn't bother to load them but I'll be bringing in some more of Loomis' excercises and some more life sketches soon!

    I've been MIA for a couple weeks and haven't had a chance to post. Holidays and work and sickness have kept me busy but school's coming up again and I have some art classes that I'm really looking forward too. So back to the grind to get myself ready!

    I'll be posting some things I've been working on soon.

    A couple of the new things I've been working on.. camera makes them kinda blurry so not very good quality but at least you can take a look.

    wish I had something better quality but they're already on the wall so I don't want to scan them haha.

    most were done from some sort of reference.

    comment plz!

    thanks,
