    CodeFather's sketchbook

    Hello everyone...I've been taking some drawing classes for
    the past few months, 2 days every other week. I know it is
    not enough and that is why I decided to open this thread.I
    hope it will keep me motivated to draw more often and be
    more consistent, and in first place - to get some advices
    which will help me to improve my skills .

    Along with the drawings from classes I'll post all sketches and exercises I do on my own at home. I`d like to thank Scott Robertson for his wonderfull dvds, here are some shading exercises done by fallowing his "rendering matte surfaces" dvd, and some perspective exercises of ships of my own design...

    Another freehand perspective exercise from yesterday. I should apply some line variation and get the construction lines out of the way, couse it's a big mess right now.

    You've got some fantastic pencil work here. I love pencils.

    Wooh! Don't say 'help me improve my poor skills', cause it makes me feel like I'm a noob (that's because I think you are better than me)!

    You are very good! The 'arcering' (don't know if it's called like that in english, I know only the dutch word) is awesome.
    Especially the lines that 'follow' the curves of the objects, they make it look more 3D.

    Great job!

    Puts me too shame. Your technical skills certainly aren't lacking much. Just keep practicing, and maybe download some Loomis or Bridgeman for anatomy.

    @germ-X , thanks man
    @Zeus12 , thanks I have Bammes and all Hogarth's anatomy books ,
    I just need to get more confident and get solid foundation before jumping right into anatomy.

    My biggest problem right now is that I spend too much time in
    the construction stage of the drawings.I just can't have it done right
    from the first time, and sometimes I spend almost 4 hours just for nailing
    down the correct proportions and get the planes right. I hope to become
    faster with practice.

    This is from yesterday(please crit, i need to know what to improve in my next drawing) :

    CodeFather: Very nice studies. These will definitely get you down with the basics. Perspective and values are looking great. I'd like to see some anatomy studies next

    As for taking the time on the construction. Don't worry it will take time for you to absorb it and for it to become second nature. Also that part is the most important too. It'll come with practice.
    Only thing I have for critique is that you could lay down the rendering more smoothly and fill all the whites. I'll be back.

    Very nice traditional stuff. I feel like in an 18 century art academy. Which is great. Maybe you could try a piece where you try shading without crosshatching? Just for kicks!

    Cheers
