    Lakeland's Sketchbook.

    Hello Im Lakeland.
    Im 27 y.o.
    I work as a graphic designer in advertisement. My main field
    of work is everything between business cards and Large format prints.
    I also work in Sony Vegas and Premier for 3D/photo/camera based commercial spots that are ment for indoor and outdoor city displays.


    I got my self a Wacom Intuos 3 A5 Tablet 2 weeks ago and there was a spasm in my soul deep inside once I drew first line. I feel like that kid with his crayons back in the good old days, when I spent hours drawing "war & soldiers" or Teenage Mutan Ninja Turtles.

    Anyway... I decided to start putting my "work" here since I realy dont have anyone to talk about it. I work basicly most of the day and live hour away from the city. That makes attending to any drawing classes too difficult to fit in the week's scheduel.

    My main issues now is harnassing the power of the tablet. I work with Painter and Photoshop for effects and tuning. I admit that Im overwhelmed by it. I feel completely lost when it comes to tools like brushes and workflow.

    Feel free to point out a direction I should go to develope my self in anyway.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi there! Nice start! I am wrong person to talk about digital art,but I think
    you will improve very fast because those are pretty good for the first time.Try to study anatomy,it´s good for both,traditional and digital art. I can´t tell you
    more,I´m beginner also.Keep it up!
    Cheers!

    The story behind any picture helps to work.
    King Ymir's chamber was clear and quiet... when he turned his sight away from the kingdom maps, a cloaked figure appeared.

    Another one from today.
    I decided not to use any colours untill I practice the light and shadow composition. So far it makes my work so much easier. I can focus only on the light and the geometry. Colors have this ability to distract me from importandt things in the scene.

    Still having problems with perspective and angles, but I hope practice will make that come to perfection

    And another pic i made today.
    Im proud of the fog layer and I think the shadow light distribution went quite good on the stones. Still I think i missed the base floor surface here, making the perspective wrong, especially with the character there in the back. Seems to be off the ground and too small in size. oh well.

    hehe... I made it to the point I crit my own work on this forum

    Hello Again.
    Another update from me.
    Needed to try some colours. the grayness made me depressed
    Good thing though on this one, I went full photoshop. the opacity and transparence handling is Waaaaay better than the one in Painter.

    Fun Stuff so far. First thought on how to improve would just be to let yourself have more time on each piece. I know you are probably skipping around right now though to have a chance to try different things. Have a good New Year!

    Hello there Bill, thanks for visiting.
    Thing is, I often get to a point I dont really know, what else is there to do. But looking at the stuff in here I get the impression each pieace is more and more detailed. I hope Im right about it

    Hi Lakeland,
    Nice face studies. I like that you tried to tackle them from different angles.
    One thing I would recommend is to check your proportions and proper placement first before you go into details. For example the eyes in your face study are usually too high - eyes are usually dead center in the head shape and I think it would make your faces more realistic.

    Keep drawing!

    WIll do batomaru
    I realy appreciate the comments. The Fact is, I have never learn about anatomy nor light distribution... all I have are my observations and some theoretical knowledge.

    Im taking a few days break from drawing now because I got like 20 hours of various tutorials. Figured out that instead of drawing all the stuff wrong, I can just sit on my ass and watch ALL of it

    New pieces comming soon though

    Aspenboy was kind enough to give me zillion of video tutorials sooo... As instructed i had my first 4 hours of anatomy class today yay

    still alot of scribbling, but I try. And for all you fishes out there - it realy works!
    so if you have any issues with drawing characters, you should realy start learning anatomy. These lectures realy helped me, and its just a start.

    oh you so have violinist hands, those things must work magic on a violin. I myself have guitar hands, long fingers wide palms. Anyway your art is really improving, I noticed you posted in the SSG thread looking for a SSG to join. Well if you're interested and haven't found one yet I am trying to get one started. P.M to let me know if you're interested.

    Aaaand another update.
    this time I did some poses, one on the left was drawn from imagination, the female was a model. You got the oryginal pencil sketch I took in 10 minutes, and a digitaly enhanced version on the middle.

    The second one is a stage 1 pic Im working on right now. Establishing values, and going to color in stage 2.

    I haz pierogi. So watchout.

    Awesome sketchbook, i think it just needs more work, more studies and experiments. Lots and lots of loose 5 min studies and after some time you'll see a drastic improvement. That last enviroment is really good.
    p.s I'm the new guy in the no name sketch group your in hi!

    Alicelefay: Thanks for popping by. I follow Glen Vilppu lessons that were recorded by one of his students during class I guess. Its over 15 hours worth material. I try to watch and draw at the same time while he is explaining stuff.
    I got the tutorials from a friend so, cant realy help you out with any link.

    Me: thanks and welcome to CA
