The Empty Box Place (Don't just sit there...POST!)
I've finally made my debut into this world and am very excited to progress! I've been lurking here for about two years, and have been in the process of meriting this sketchbook. I finally have my scanner, paper and pencils rockin' and ready to roll! I'll keep it brief, but here's a tad about me.
Not looking at pursuing art as a profession (maybe on the side), but am good at it.
I have an extreme desire (and plenty of time) to improve!
I have 146 sharpened pencils at my disposal, and new notebooks I'm waitin' to shred!
Whatever you wanna call it, feel free to post here =]
I'm aiming to break 20 pages in good time

The first two are older pieces. I think they're from 2007.
Also, what are the details of adding pictures to the thread? I hope these aren't too big >_>...
Do I have to name a copyright everytime? Do I technically own these?? @_@

Anatomy and proportion need work on your older stuff.
I'd like to see some newer and things.

THey're still coming out a bit big -.-
If anyone can offder advice on how to fix that, it'd be GREAT.
So far this super-sized stuff makes my pencilwork look like elephant paintings...

I hope this one is small enough.
Is there some sort of preset you can get it to in order to get those pretty, small pictures you guys have?
I appreciate your post!
I'll have a serious surprise for you as long as you stick around
I'll make you proud.
But again, I need a way to shrink these puppies.

I'm gonna edit the pictures that are already up.
Then I'll put up the new stuff.
I can't stand the sloppiness of the supersized pictures.
So check it out again!
It will be bold!

CRITIQUE and COMMENT these, as they are from this year!

Thanks for checking by my sketchbook!
I'm definitely seeing some improvement!
Work on your faces a bit, and keep going!

A nifty lil update!
The majority of this was done about two days ago.
But the last picture I just finished now.
It's a portrait of a friend (not from life).
When I look at it on the computer it doesn't seem to have much of an effect!
It doesn't make me feel anything profoundly -.-
I would like my faces to be more evocative, realistic.
Something about it bothers me.
Find it for me! >

There is a lot of improvement in the new drawings. I really like the hair on the girl in the last drawing. Keep up the good work.

I see some improvement here!
I suggest you work on your porportions, make it more ideal and invent differences; Practice the simple placement. Especially the "Shadow line" or "The bedbug line" The break between the Light and the dark. Where the dark becomes the halftone...
Work on construction, This whould help the smaller details not "Float" on the large form. The large form needs to feel more "solid". Looky Robert beverly Hales drawing lessons of the great masters and his Master class in figure drawing. Observe masterworks and how did the use tone, construction and planes. (Don't be afraid to look at life too lol)
Also... Planes! Look at loomis and that asaro - do some sculpture... Like this >>> http://www.learning-to-see.co.uk/feeling-the-form (This whould also help you with construction and possibly many other things.)
Work on the edges of those planes! Soft vs hard, Really graduate and make those halftones turn with hatching. Use elwells tut's and greg pros paintover for ref.
Make the light sorce clearer, Expierement with it more... Work in different medias.
Let'sa see some progress...

It's been too long since I've posted!
The new works i'm posting are just a fraction of what I did this week.
The others aren't finished yet, but I will get to them soon.
I practiced some faces with Loomis, and it's working out pretty well.
Let me know if there's any improvement. I'll do some more with his facial structures and see how it works out.
The (i think) third picture down is my dad's work.
He used more lines in the picture and smudged the shading.
The portrait at the end is still a W.I.P.
I need to reduce the (longitude?) width of the face and adjust the corners of the mouth.
Lemme know what you think!
Until next post, ENJOY!
In the first picture (with poses on it), I got these form Posemaniacs. I spent less than five minute son each little muscle frame.
For the next picture, these were the 30 second quick-draws. They were fun, but I would like to touch them up.
On the LAST picture, well...it didn't merit my sketchbook at first, so I ripped it out. But then it came along really nicely! I'd say "lesson learned", eh?
Anyway, I'm headin for more posing studies and anatomy. But I do have some interesting works on the side . PREPARE!
