Thread: Ananda's sketchbook
July 12th, 2009 #1
Hi! First post ever, let's present myself...
I'm 17 years old, from Spain (that may explain my bad English) and studying in art school (although the level here is quite low...)
I've been lurking CA.org for a year or so and finally decided to register and make a sketchbook. Because I'm so lazy and I think that being active in the community can make me less lazy.
I'm terrible. Critique encouraged.
Here are some recent sketches and studies (most from photos, second and last is http://lockstock.deviantart.com)

Great work so far, the still life looks great as do the figure studies. Keep up the good work.

Hay Ananda C thats a good start, with the still life's try to keep the rendering a little more consistent instead of using stroke marks try small circular strokes. and for the figure work you might wanna pick up Bridgman or Hogarth instead of posemaniacs.com theirs nothing wrong with using posemaniacs but i think its harder to teach yourself about figures both Bridgman and Hogarth kind of break it down and give you better ideas about figures
good luck ill be back so bring me some progress

A year or two ago I went through Bridgman and Loomis stuff and didn't get much results.
I think I've never learnt a lot from books.
I made the biggest improvement in anatomy when I took up dancing and yoga last year - it really makes you aware of your body, range of movement, everything.
Today I've only drawn some skulls...

for 17 I think you are at a pretty advanced stage. Just keep doing what your doing and you will be super awesome by your 20s. Your still life is good. Keep at it.

Good start of sb.
My sister studied art at a not a great school and it didn't help her at all..but a friend of
mine in the same school has improved a-lot!!
So it is realy all about you'r aproach and how much you draw.
So keep it up and draw

good start to a sketchbook, just keep those studies going and your lines will become more fluent and confident with time even though your lines are better than mine >>

Oh man, I love your skulls. I need to learn anatomy before I will actually feel confident in my heads. lol

I'm still alive and I'm going to update this as daily as I can, even if I only have shitty sketches (I hope I stop doing shitty sketches that way).
I'm also going to stick to recent things and I'm not going to resurrect schoolwork from last semester.
A painting (i had photoref but i tweaked it substantially, it's Zoe Jakes a very amazing tribal bellydancer. i think i messed up the likeness but...) and sketches from life, everything done this week.

two or three studies from Bridgman and the rest is from imagination.
now i'll go crawl under a rock and study anatomy for the next three or three hundreds years.
(I updated two days in a row! yay! i'm on my way to make this daily)

I'm resurrecting this again.
I hate university. Fine arts... so much bullshit there, it's discouraging. I haven't done almost anything valuable in the whole year, now that it's summer break I'm starting to work and I'm somewhat motivated again.
But I still have three more years of uni to go through and to quit doesn't seem like an option. ARGH.
Three studies done today, mobile phone from life and the other two from photos.
