    Disoriented SketchBook (Nudity)

    So I've been on this site for months now and I've finally built the courage up to start a sketchbook. I'm slowly progressing doing sketches of men, women(mostly women), animals, fish, food items, and anything else that catches my eye.

    I've only really been practicing with graphite and getting that down. With the occasional attempt at something in photoshop. Well if you have anything helpful to throw there for me I'm all ears.

    * If you know how to create a thumbnail that would be awesome advise. I can't seem to find that thread again.

    welcome To CA, the skull is a good start just make sure to occasionally dump your work in here every few days and keep studying starting from the basics and working your way up.
    posemaniacs.com is a great place to get 3d references for models, and check out books like loomis, Hogarth, Bridgman... and their are others for anatomy practice..

    o about the thumbnail well im not sure but i should be the last image you post on your first post. i think your skull pic might be to big to work though ...idk check in the support section
    Good luck and happy studying
    -Demo-

    Demo* I'll have to check out some of those books you suggested. I think the thumbnail worked it's self out. I'll definately post something every week. I'm trying to do a number of different sketches daily.

    Welcome to CA! I think you must practice drawings, there are a lot of errors (sorry)
    You haven't post any figure drawing, try to do it. To studdy anatomy you can do 30/60 seconds drawings with pose maniacs, it's a very good exercice : http://www.posemaniacs.com/?pagename=thirtysecond

    Here are some more sketches. I tried the 30 second figure on posemaniacs. I think I may need to step up to the longer version for awhile since I didn't complete any of the figures.


    Still looking for any crits and advice anyone can give me. Some of these are really cartoony but I think it's just to get myself more comfortable with faces in general since I have never been very good at them.

    Twan* I have started the figure drawing but you only said that I had errors you really didn't point them out for me. I know a few(perspective, shading, facial spacing) but I would like to know what you meant.

    Sarkey* Thank you I will keep at it.

    I found this one while browsing around in Bridge. I was really bored at an Apple Bee's and I figured what would a bee with a fondness of apples do.

    Sorry about all the crappy photos of the drawing. I spent most of the day trying to get my scanner to work but after like 8 restarts and 14 times of the install just stopping I finally quit.

    Some of these are recently done( 3days old). The one of the woman is much older but my only Life drawing class with a live nude model. It was fun

    Your faces are good but tend to be quite simplistic. Try to break down the face into planes to add depth to the picture. I'm sure some of the older guys here would be happy to give you some references and people to study from for that.

    Evzyza92- You have no idea how good it feels to finally have a critique. I'll be sure to start adding depth to my sketches really soon. As you can see I've been bouncing around quite a bit between different items. Either way Thank you for that.

    hey, first off, thanks for the comment in the crit thread. (I hear ya that it's hard to get some good feedback sometimes.)

    As for one comment you made about the 30 second poses at posemaniacs... You said that you weren't able to complete any of the poses before it changed I think? 30 second poses are only for a warm up really, you want to try and just get the gesture of the pose down.

    What I mean by gesture (if you haven't done "gesturing" in any classes ) is to get down the shape or the feel of the pose, but don't really worry about the outline. Don't worry about it at all actually. Try and get the mass of the pose down, and try to do it without lifting your pencil off of the paper until you start another pose. They will look messy and crappy to you at first, but the more you use them to warm up, the more you will see improvement and see how useful gestures really are. I wish I could find the link I have in mind, because there are at least a couple of professionals out there whose sketchbooks a choc-full of squiggly gestures.

    I agree with another comment below too, that some of your faces (while not bad, don't get me wrong) seem to lean more towards cartoony and stylized. If cartoons/comics/stylized is what you are going for in the long run, I'd -still- recommend spending a great deal of time learning to draw people realistically first. Knowing anatomy in great depth can never do anything but help. =) Try starting some drawings in the "middle" of the object, where there aren't any edges, only mass. Learning to give mass and depth to a white piece of paper is one of the hardest things to learn.

    Not really proud of any of this. One of these is of Posh. Should Probably change the title to include nudity. Still working on getting the scanner to function
