    the lexxx aesthetic

    hey everyone, i've been a lurker for seriously years and I've really been inspired here more than a few times. i hope to create a productive sketchbook, and internalize any crit you guys provide.

    let's see, a little about me...i'm currently a college student, but after my undergrad i may seek out a more art-centric program/school, although I wouldn't trade my current environment for anything. ultimately I don't know if I want to be an animator, or something on the "finer" side, or something else entirely, but for now i know that i realllly enjoy sketchbooks and their look. also, i firmly believe that leonardo da vinci is the most awesome person to ever live (although tina fey is giving him a run for his money).

    thanks for stopping by!

    Hey Thanks for commenting in my SB. Some good stuff here. Maybe do some work with your line weight and push you darks a bit more. Keep up with the figure studies. Oh and the image in the first post is automatically used as the avatar. So just change the image in the first post and the avatar should also change.

    Hey Lexxx, looks like you're off to a great start with your sketchbook! Thank you so very much for stopping by mine - I posted a new piece just after your post. haha.

    What is it that you're currently going to school for, specifically?

    I'm so glad you made the Da Vinci-Tina Fay comparison; it would be terribly difficult to decide which to have dinner with, if given the chance

    Looks like you're starting to really want to get into figures. Something I have found that helps me no matter what I draw, but especially with figures, is to start my day off drawing (I call them grapes) circles and ovals. I'll bust out a few hundred of them with both hands.

    Once I'm pretty lose and warmed up, I go back and draw in a center line, to bisect the circles. This helps me to get my aim down and often times, i'll do the line with the hand that didn't draw the circle. e.g. drew circle with left hand, draw line with right.

    Once i've worked on my aim a bit with those lines, i'll often toss up some perspective grids and draw squares in perspective. I won't do hundreds of these, but dozens, surely. When I'm pretty happy with the squares, I will toss circles in perspective inside of those squares, then bisect those.

    Another thing I really enjoy doing from time to time is to pick a body part (if doing the figure) or some other subject matter (e.g. types of leaves, cars, weapons, whatever) and I'll spend every spare minute of the day designing and/or observing and drawing/painting/sculpting that particular item. I have to admit that I haven't spent nearly as much time doing this part recently as I'd like, but that's how I prefer to observe.


    Best of luck with your future, sir!

    I like your portrait teh best. The planes you create are nice and seem about right. The nose could use more depth though!

    Great start! As you've seen, I'm not exactly the best person to be dishing out advice about gestures, but I think you might benefit from simplifying them. Working with shorter time frames could help...I've been trying ten poses at 10 seconds, then ten at 15, 30, 45, and 60, then working my way back down again. I imagine that I only have 10 seconds each time, though, so that I get the basic idea down asap and then can move on to refinement with the time that's left. Really looking forward to watching your progress.

    That poor eraser guy. He gets his head erased everyday
    By the way, thanks for stopping by my meager sketchbook--it really needs more updates...
    Those hand studies in the last post are great! Let's see more of those.

    Value wise, it's not that you're not getting dark darks because there are some places in your sketches that are pretty dark, but the different values aren't really transitioning into each other very well. Try to blend those values more. Also watch the eyes on your faces. They don't seem to be aligned.
