    Kedrew's SB

    Hello and welcome to my Sketchbook. I joined CA 1 year ago and have been a regular in the Ringling hopefuls thread. I will be a Computer animation student in the Fall of 2009. These are some of my most recent works. Please feel free to critique my work. Thank you for your time.

    To start of is a Self Portrait and a Photoshop study.

    [edit: most recent self portrait]

    Hi! Welcome to sketchbooking.
    I like your apple study the best.
    Your portrait seems well proportioned, but values could be better. Learn different hatching techniques and don't be afraid to push the range (I have to tell this to myself all the time too.)

    Thanks for the crit Leonor. I think my camera made my SP a little flat. But I'll keep the pushing of value tip in mind when doing my future projects. Oh and I'll be updating the Figure study soon.

    thanks for the nice response guys. The self portrait in pencil took around 45 minutes
    (I think). This stuff I have posted right now was just some pieces I was able to upload because it was done in photoshop. I'll hopefully get a good enough camera to post some sketches and studies

    My goal in this SB is to learn anatomy, and whatever it is incorporated with. (perspective, proportion, construction, rhythm, form, character building,etc) I will be an animation major so I'm sure it will be essential. Any advice is highly appreciated.

    I have some Loomis Books so far. Feel free to point me in the right direction.

    The figure painting looks good, but I agree that the self-portrait needs a wider range of values.

    I have some sketchbook pages and a still life I did on my remaining free trial of photoshop. Anybody ever used gimp before? Is the interface similar to PS?

    Hey Kedrew, your figure painting is intense man! I like your last still life too. You should play around with a landscape next, maybe incorporating a figure into a landscape.

    The Gimp interface is similar and most of the tools function similar to photoshop, but have different icons.

    Hey man I think I'm friends with you on facebook! Good to see your sketchbook, that last life painting is looking good, I like that the objects have a variety of surface material. Just work on defining your hard and soft edges a bit more and you'll be good to go!
