(((just a quackart's sketchbook)))
I'm 20 years old and I'm studying Informatics (yeey) ...but i decided i will try it to some art school so i will work on it during summer... ye and I'm from Czech Republic...
I also play the guitar, so my "art" is probably influenced by that
I'm not exactly a new member - i was only observer last year or two - and now i decided to contribute by starting my own sketchbook...
I know my work isn't anything special, but I really want to improve and I hope I can, but i need your help.
So here is the deal - As long as u will comment my uploads, i will keep posting and working on a new stuff. I think it's fair... Isn't it?
So let's try it...

Hey dude, thanks for dropping by my sb much appreciated. It's nice to see the perspective stuff and the antomy studies. I came by when you had just the more graphic design but i did not know how to offer anything.
Also tell us what you like in art, where you are hoping to go with it or do with it so that C&C can be given with that in mind.
Also i think the comments are kinda of implied and expected so your deal does not make much sense. ;P Plus, as has been pointed out to me as well, we should be doing this for us and because we want to.
Keep it up man!

also its totally true - we are doing it for us, BUT sometimes you just need discipline and more motivation - thats why u started your challenge... isnt it true?
I have huge motivation now, because im studying Informatics and im starting to hate it there... this Math is killing me i have settled some consultation and im hoping CC will also help...
The biggest hope is to get to Creative Animation (its called something like that... donno how to translate it better.) ) I dont know if i can do it... but i will damn try it ! pheew THX for dropping by !!!
gmags: thx a lot... i will try to do some life drawings...
Does anyone know how to change icon of my sketchbook? you know in the list of topics...

Hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.
My main advice would be to define the Anatomy a little more clearly because as it is, it is difficult to see where one muscle mass stops and another begins. If you are unfamiliar with the Anatomy, the only way to get acquainted with it is to study it. Just don't start at the hand like I did, that is probably the toughest area in the whole body haha.
Your art actually reminds me a lot of my own before I started studying Anatomy. Out of curiosity, have you ever heard of Sheldon Borenstein? He has some free videos on youtube that really helped me out when I was in the beginning stages and maybe they can benefit you as well.
Hope this helps, good luck!

Mr.Juicy: thx... i like my mood guide too (i know it could look like im not so modest) ... but its pretty connected with me...
May 22nd, 2009 #14
Hell yeah, Euroboy! I love Turbonegro too!
Your stylized work is really neat, seems to be your comfort zone, be sure to keep on working on it. As far as your other stuff goes, not half bad, you should really work on some studies from books instead of trying to figure it out with your imagination.
Check out the books by Andrew Loomis and George Bridgman and work on some studies from them, they will be eternally valuable.
You've got determination, keep on drawing!
Lets see Euroboy finished.

The style you draw is funny - thats cool! Try to work on your shading stuff; use more light and shadow like in the face from #6.

Hello Quackart - nice sketchbook!
I especially liked this piece: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...9&d=1242722764
I somehow like the idea, and the hands are drawn quite well (despite the fact that the thumb of the hand beeing held could be a little thicker in the tip, but thats a minor problem i guess.. )
I also like your "comic figures" and the fact that you do both: comic and realistic drawings
Stick doing both!

AustenFM: thanks a lot... i really appreciate these advices... i know i need it like a hell and your style is pretty inspirating to me... !
I also like to see that Turbonegro have fans here too... also inspirating but in the other kind of art .) and finished Euroboy? interesting idea... will probably try something
engelhardt: thanks man... shading is also on the list... i will try connect it with some poses or something like that...
Demodeus: Helloah! Thanks for stopping by... comments are really helping a lot... and ye, i want to stick with both - realistic drawings are just needed and its basic stuff and comic things... are fun...
and here is some new stuff...
and a bit older

Hi quackart! Is that Monica Bellucci I see there? Because if so, hubba-hubba...great choice of figure to study! I'm a big fan of your stylized works, and it's good to see you pushing your anatomy studies as well. Keep it up! I look forward to seeing your progress.

I really like your grafik things! Great style, motive and color! How did you do that? Is taht painted or vectorized? I never manage to do something like that...
Hey I am studying Informatics to but want to do arts ... so we are on the same highway I hope. Let's work hard and master the challenges!
May 26th, 2009 #22
Eiki: hi! thx for looking to my sketchbook... these graphic things are simply made in photoshop with pen tool sometimes i use a textures as a background... nothing hard but its fun...
...and hey you are informatic too? i thought im the only one .D ... and work hard? sounds like a plan!
here i worked a bit on new character...
May 26th, 2009 #23
hehe, really funny comic characters you have here.
and I love the "face it" illustrations!
on anatomy studies I'd recommend using actual anatomybooks for learning. they're easier to understand than working from photos. you've probably seen some of loomis works already, his books are really good to work with for example.
*edit. see that Austen mentoined them already. well you're free to go then
keep it up!
May 26th, 2009 #24
I like your cartoons!
I would just have to say to keep your lines cleaner when drawing (or try to) and to keep on practising anatomy, i would recommend you to Hogarth, Loomis and an actual life drawing classes. Life drawing classes are really nice to go to, helps you quite a bit.
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

I can definitely see your style fit into flash animation.
Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!
May 27th, 2009 #26
monotony: thank you very muchos and i just found like a four book from Loomis right on the internet! so from now im starting probably "Figure Drawing for all it's Worth by Andrew Loomis" ... but i cant read all the text from it now, because i must also learn for the exams -.- ...
My57: hmm...cleaner lines? thats really good idea... i just looked on my todays update and well... it could be pretty much cleaner thanks for pushing me the right direction i know i need it
Pigeonkill: oh ye i can tell you that its probably a future of these characters, because we just started new band with friend and its something like a comix-rock'n'roll... so every presentation of the band will be converted into comix world and of course - clips to our music... it would be also lot of work but some animation work would be appreciated on the talents exams... thx for stopping by!
here is my todays update... cleaner lines... pretty good idea .)

Hey quackart and thanks for the visit
It's obvious that your more graphic looking art is your forte. I'm not belittling your pencils, but I'll get to that. You have some really fun and pleasing character designs in your little creatures, great variety too. Good sense of line weight and form. Maybe graphic design could be your niche?
As for the the graphite, there's more room for improvement there. It's mainly your line quality you should try to strengthen. It's very scribbly and hardly any contrast regarding value, either. I suggest as most CA would (or have perhaps? I didn't read all comments), that is doing quick figure studies. Like 30-90 sec ones. PoseManiacs is excellent for that purpose, even though they're CGI mannequins.

AsaB: thank you veeery much! Posemaniacs ROCKS! i didnt know that there is something like that on the internet... ye its naive... on the internet is everything i just tryed some quick sketches... for start it was like 3-5 minutes... 30sec is insane for me... i have to think about proportions a bit thx one more time... these advices are bloody brilliant
i said i will start work on that book from Loomis... and i WILL but not now... lot of work to school... can do only quick sketches... at least something
so here like a 5 minutes sketches... the first i had to level up in photoshop... it was really weak line there...
here are some older things... a paper-print and my bag drawn with reddle...
May 28th, 2009 #29
I'm going to sound repetitive, but really like your graphic work. It's really strong. Although your pencil work isn't as strong I like that you are pushing yourself and not neglecting it. I think if you keep on with the advice you have been given it will continue to improve.
