    Joel's Sketchbook

    Hi, I am new to concept art. I have been drawing for almost a year now and really enjoy it. I just got a scanner for Christmas and am excited to join the concept art ranks.

    My goal for myself right now is to become better at figure drawing. I have been reading Loomis and Hogarth and trying with mixed results to imitate them. I am starting to get frustrated with my progress so I am posting here to hopefully get some advice. My stuff is pretty sketchy. I have wanted to focus on getting that part right before moving on to more complicated stuff. Does anyone have any thoughts on this approach?

    Two sketches today: Tina Fey from photo and around 10 minute action poses sketches.

    I'll give you some advice about the female face. It is more smooth, w. longer vurves, and less angles. Try to smooth up your lines a bit when you draw women's face. Also, do up some general sketches of just stick figures in all types of poses. Also life drawing will help you lose any sort of stiffness in your picture and figures.

    Thanks for the feedback Evxyza92. I sketched some more. I thought these heads looked less angular until I scanned them. Now that I am looking at them on my computer I am not as satisfied.

    Well, they are just sketches, and I like these more than that tina fey one. Less angles, allo you spread out more when in a more developed drawing, to make it better.

    Hi Joel,
    I really like your "Anna Karina" sketch! Very nice strokes. You could develop it further with stronger tones to bring out some features.

    Post more!

    Nice sketches. One thing that popped out in the last sketch is his left hand, which appears way too small - it should be larger since it is placed closer to the camera. If you look at the image in the tutorial it is a bit larger than his head. Some of your nude women seem to be missing their necks - a mistake that I also make frequently If you haven't done so already, I suggest you look up the 8-head formula (or 7-head or whatever), and try to memorize it; this has helped me alot with the proportions of the human figure.
