    Carbon Sketchbook - *Nudity*

    New stuff further down


    Hey, I'm 18, starting art college in about a months time and my goal is to greatly improve portraits and figure drawing

    I signed up for a mentoring thread, which gave me a proper kick in the ass so I'll start with the stuff we did.

    These are all from photos.

    Great work on the photo reference pieces, they all look great but the one with the mouth looks rather odd but supposing it should look that way forget it. Keep up the good work.

    Icedearth15876 - thank you Tbh I kinda got sick of doing the mouth as it wasn't coming together the way I wanted it to. Learned a lesson the hard way lol

    Will try and update this daily.

    Couple of portraits done for the mentoring thread. From imagination using a couple of refs. It's a start at least but I've got a loong way to go yet.

    Hey, thanks for dropping by! Yup definatly, will remember that when I redo it.
    Cheers.

    Bear with me, my brain completely died today and not a lot of things were making sense.

    Quick sketch of Alice Cooper. Learned a lot from this, never realised how much character can be conveyed just by simple little expressions.

    Again please scroll down for ref

    hey there

    the first skull looks really cool the last one, imho, is a lilttle too busy from a value point of view. the gray values are scattered all over the place. i noticed this because i m also struggling to keep these things organized.

    i found a great read on this issue, andrew loomis - creative illustration. i found out many useful things about organizing values in here. The theory i understand, the practice is a killer

    Ahh thoughts so Lily Cheers Hayden. Yeah went a little bit overboard with the values, way too many with way to small a brush

    Did some torso studies, things are starting to click with balance.

    PS - watched Pan's Labyrinth again. It is soo beautiful. Just thought I'd mention that

    Funny how ideas pop into your head at the oddest moments.

    Tried working with a colour scheme.

    Choose to do a Triadic one. Think I understood it - going by a colour wheel in Painter X, red, green and blue are spaced equally around the wheel so that would be one scheme right? So yellow, light blue and pink would be another. Or am I totally in the wrong direction?

    Pan's Labyrinth is really a great movie, I watched it like 4 time: one for myself and the other 3 were with friends i wanted to to show it to them.


    The left (from the viewer) torso is really pretty. Have you worked from a photo? Can you please explain me how you worked with the brushes and texture?
