Ye Olde Sketchbook... at least I 'm trying ... (updated 9th April)Hi folks,
I'm not very good at introducing myself, so I try to keep it as short as possible
my name is Ben... 'nuff said^^
so, we got a new year and this might be a good opportunity to start my very first sketchbook here on .
I'm not sure if I can update this daily, coz I have no scanner/camera. just can't decide on what I should spent my christmas money :p
now on to the visual part: here are my "works", critic is very welcome, so don't hold back. (besides, i don't mind hard words^^)

you mean the vegetables and fruits? i have a lot more of them, but i didn't think they were interesting^^
at the moment i'm trying to apply this "technique" to my figurative studies. but i think i need a little bit more time to get it.

Keep up the good work...
i like the style u're exploring, but have in mind that each surface have its own... so try some variations ... for example the last sketch - IMG_0002.jpg
the render of the skin and the trousers couldn't be the same )

theUNKNOWNsketcher thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the hint, this might just be right in time... pretty stupid of me not to think about that and i was wondering what was wrong thx!
dessinateurimpulsif ah ok, now i get what you mean^^ i'm still trying to learn how to do it the right way
January 18th, 2009 #14
like many others have told. i also like the initial sketches in the thread. its got a unique style which is really gud.
how about trying the same style in digital works? if u apply that kindo strokes in ur digital works, u can achieve amazin outputs.
all the best

Very nice studies! I think the shading on your figures aren´t as strong as on the still lifes. Maybe it´s easier to shade the body if you think of it as made up by the basic shapes.

@Vishnu.Ram.S thankx for stopping by, it's definitely worth a try, but at the moment I'm struggling with mit cheap-o-tablet... raising funds to get my dirty lil' hands on an intuos 3 A4. so digital stuff is on hold right now..
@Mumph thanks for stopping by, too! yepp, you're right, i dunno why, but I was kind of "afraid" while shading the figure studies... but, i'll upload new pix of newer studies which are shaded like the fruit-/veggie- studies. pretty frustrating not being able to update my sb daily definitley in need of basic equipment....
January 19th, 2009 #17
WOW! Great sketchbook! Your shading is amazing! It makes your drawings pop right off the page! I am going to have to take some pointers from you!!! Great work, and I would like to see more.
January 20th, 2009 #18
Well fellow art-students, i got my hands on a canon pixma mp 540 which has a built in scanner, so... expect a huge update tomorrow. sry but tonight i have to write some bull***t paper for university. hopefully i'll be accepted in art school, coz i want to tell my mean professors to ...
btw: to all the american CA members, congrats to your new president!!!
January 22nd, 2009 #19
some new stuff, not as much as i had announced but i'm a bit to lazy to scan em all right now, will do that tomorrow... i promise!
so, here we go, some acrylic fruit painting^^had to do it in art class, sry for the crappy quality, was shot with my mobiles cam.
the other ones are older male figurative studies.
so, well, tomorrow/saturday i'll upload quite a bit. 2 paintings, hand studies, posemaniac studies, 2 drawings, and a robot/steampunk piece I'm working on (thanxs for the inspiration Americandodo!)
that's it for the night,...at least for me^^
January 23rd, 2009 #20
Great work, I can't wait till tomorrow when we get to see a few more! I still say you have an awesome eye for shading. Personally, I am scared to shade things, I don't know why, other than I am scared I will screw up my drawings. But you have got that down! Anyway, again, I can't wait till tomorrow to see some more work from you (I may not be able to reply tomorrow, as it is my B-day, and I may be out partying, HAHAHA) Well.....keep it up! As for the inspiration....I don't know what I did, but your very welcome
January 25th, 2009 #21
Well, it is tomorrow, and I don't see any new stuff (just giving you a hard time, hahaha) I know how things go, it seems like there is never the time to do the things you want to. Anyway, I wanted to say thank you for the birthday wish you left me. Take care, and I will be back to check on your updates =)
January 25th, 2009 #22
wow. Good work! I especially like the pencils and that hatching style. Really good sense of form and good range of values and light/shadow.
The dude in post 7 looks like his torso needs to be a little higher and his feet are friggin HUGE!

January 27th, 2009 #27
Nice to see the update! My favorites are your studies, and your art class stuff very clean lines, and awesome shading...which I still think is one of your strongest points!). I am very curious to see how your "draw 100 people" will turn out! So far so good =D Anyway, I really see an improvement with this last batch of works.
Anyway, keep up the good work!
