    CastorFiber's Digital Sketchbook

    Hi everyone,

    I recently bought a wacom after wanting one for years and since I got it I have been drawing almost every day. (padding myself on the back)
    I am taking some artclasses (absolute beginner) at my local university at night and I really want to get better at drawing and I want to learn how to paint and learn about color and so on.

    The reason for starting this skecthbook is mainly to get some feedback, crits and perhaps some tips on how to get better.

    My scanner don't want to work on vista 64bit so at first all I have to show you is digital stuff, you'll have to hold out for my loomis:es.

    I would love your thoughts on some of these skecthes, what am I doing wrong? Thanks for looking.

    hey

    You have a very unique style, a lot of depth and "chunky" characters. i mean that in a good way. Good to see your refining it as well as branching off.
    Are you using a photoshop blur filter for some of the effects? it seems very clean
    If so, try just using looser smoother brushes (does that even make sense lol), it might give it a more natural effect to go with your loose sketchy style of building depth.

    Thanks man, I use the blurtool in most cases but i have used the filter to... "melt" strokes together. When you say softer brushes do you mean a brush with softer edges of more opaque or...

    Thanks, I started to think I wouldn't get any comments at all.

    Its hard to draw anything inside in sweden today... the weather is seriously nice.

    Tjenare, tackar för ditt besök i min sb! Testa använd den hårda penseln också, lek med uhm, edges. Typ denna, det blir lite jobbigt att titta på den när den är så suddig, lite skarpa kanter lite här och där hade inte varit fel. Angående din fråga. Blocket är egentligen grått, på scannern ser det mer brunt ut, men det är ett ganska billigt block, är inte så noga. Sen vanlig blyerts och vita higlights med vit kol. På återseende!

    Aww, that's unfortunate he didn't like it. Thanks for stopping by my book by the way! And I really like the self portrait of you that you used for your avatar. It's very "grand theft auto." I like the angry face too! More facial expressions pleeeeaase

    Great portraits! And Im glad to hear you're pushing yourself to use your new Wacom tablet .. I need to do the same
    The landscape you did is very nice, but the image itself is a little big .. try scaling it down a bit more for the web so we can see everything.
    I really like the bell pepper drawing, you did a great job on that!

    Keep up the drawing ... and keep up the posting!

    Wow, comments! Happy day.

    Artangela - Thanks for your comments, there is more expressions on the way, rest assured.

    Zenobia - Thanks, I like using the wacom so much it must be bad for me.
    I did some lifedrawing in coal the other day and had so much fun so coal is a contender (post some pictures of that later on) but for now its all wacom for me. I removed that big image and will post it again in a better size, sorry about that guys. I admit it, im lazy.

    And this is the sketch... 30 minutes, tops. Had fun doing it but I think I overworked it, I liked it better when it was simpler.
