    13th July

    From 20th July 2009
    Started drawing from the start of the year and have been taking small drawing lessons after work.
    I have some experience with 3d modeling, product design and rendering but not much. I have also used photoshop for 5 years.
    Aim is to be a successful version of myself, learn and have fun.

    [edit] Theres only some mild drawings of female/males of different sizes, ages here. I kept the erm...private parts out, so it should be fairly safe for work. But I don't recommend browsing
    while operating heavy machinery or aircraft.

    These are sketches of a vtol concept, done a couple of months ago.

    I was drawing at the same time as modelling it on the computer. So some of the sketches were to solve problems.
    I find it a bit faster to play around with ideas this way instead of making the concepts and modelling seperate like I used to.

    plunder bunny- Thanks for looking and taking the time to leave comment. I see your off to a good start with your sketchbook. I dont feel confident when I draw the portraits at all.
    I find I usually spend ages on the proportions fixing them and moving lines till they look okay.

    ---------

    update 24/7/09

    Excluding the anime, Most is from the past week.
    Sorry for my poor graphics tablet writing skills.

    Hey, cool stuff in here dude.

    Looks like your 3d is pretty good.

    Your face look like they could use some work though. The cheapest most available model is yourself, so don't be afraid of some self portraits!

    Ricky Ponting should look more like Ian Hislop - hope you're watching the rained off test. I can appreciate anyone who can do 3d well. Your still lives and cars are fine in 2d, it's just the faces - maybe if you think of them as machines it might help.

    I know what you mean. They need lots of work. I tried and tried.
    I want to try a self portrait but I dont think It would be easy to get a mirror near the laptop and tablet to paint it.
    I'm willing to give pencil and paper a go, but Ill see how time goes.

    Thankyou for the reply. For ricky ponting I just saw his pic on a magazine and drew it, Im not really into cricket.
    At the moment I'm doing some studies of a small skeleton in art class, So that should help with the faces. Its weird for me doing the faces because they are so organic, and I struggle with that part.

    update for the 3/8/09

    The car is a model from 3 years ago and I went back today to render it better.

    I hope this doesnt bother people but I reduced the size of renders drawing etc. - to make the page load a bit faster.
    but I did upload the full resolution image to imageshack.

    Update for the 6/8/09

    This update is smaller as I had a lot of other work to do . But I still want to keep it around every 2 days per update whatever happens.

    I will be going away on holiday from friday for 3 nights and I don't think I will have access to a scanner and the internet whilst away. So next update will be monday night.

    Update for the 10/8/09

    A couple abstracts and sketches over the weekend.
    The car sketches are in order of completion.The very bottom car is referenced from a car magazine, the rest are from imagination.
    All were in 2b pencil and 0.2 felt pen on a A5 sketchbook in free time.

    The second abstract has got some movement and a bit of depth. That's a lot of cars and is that a blind contour drawing I see?

    Thanks for the reply.
    The abstracts are a bit like experiments to me, I just like to start them without any intention of how they may turn out.
    This experiment was the pencil pressure.

    Lots of cars... I know. I just like them as sculptures, The small ones were fairly quick, so 15-20mins a page.
    The contour drawing, well... I call them continous line drawings. This one was on the bus using my reflection. I looked at the reflection about 3 times.

    Do you animate any of your 3d stuff? Like the skateboard design.

    You seem to be a fan of seagulls AND the color red, which already gives me a bias in your favor towards your artwork. Anyway, you seem to be pretty disciplined and you do a good job experimenting with all different aspects of art (realism, cartoon-y, value, 3D stuff, etc.) which isn't something everyone's brave enough to do. I particularly like your 2D stuff just out of personal preference, but you're awesome with the 3D stuff. Keep it up fo sho.

    Here is my sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=166026 Check it out, yah?

    Generally I can't animate any of the rhino stuff without a lot of exporting and refining the mesh to make them useful.
    Not to say it isn't impossible, Ive heard it just isn't worth all the time and problems involved in most cases.

    However I can make... 'engineering' animations in solidworks and turntable animations.

    Yeah I like red, lots of reasons. But Seagulls I uh.. long story,
    I try to be myself and these are all things that are related to me and my experiences.
    Experimenting is lots of fun. It takes some of the grind out and makes me forget I'm drawing. So I just like mixing things up and finding things out.
    I find it so difficult to follow tutorials and copy books. Maybe it's my grammar.

    Thanks for the replies.

    The retro looking cars have a nice feel to them. The other cars are like you're drawing them to be rendered. Nice turtles. 3d stuff great, where can I order that bike?

    thanks mate,
    The watch was for my product design course on 'branding' , 2 years ago, actually now that i remember it was much more like 3 years. It's one of those models I couldn't get a decent render out of then.
    The bands are meant to be like different tires. That go on really quick- like racing pit stops.

    Thanks.
    I used to ride a skateboard for about 3 years, then I stopped because I reached a point where things leveled out and I started getting injured a lot.

    Yeah I was watching season 1 of 'rides' while i was drawing. They have lots of the 32' fords that they go to crazy amounts of modifications to the bodywork as part of the show.
    I modelled a 32' about 4 years ago for fun.
    13th July.

    The cars I hope to be able to get the lines clean enough for them to be useful. What I saw before was they were too hairy and rough when I dropped them into painter and photoshop.

    The bike is based off this one, they say it's discontinued.

    I'd love to have one too.

    update for the 18/8/09


    I borrowed a camera and took pictures of the a2 sketchbook from art classes.
    The sketchbook starts at the same time as the sketches in the first post. And goes to last thursday. It took a while to put this together, so not so much time to make other stuff.

    Ribs are challenging, but unless you're going to lot of starving people, the general shape should suffice.

    I used to have a friend with a 1929 Bentley. That was a lot of fun to ride in.

    I was thinking the same thing. Both the ribs and pelvis seem to be where the most consistent masses are in the body.
    It was most benificial (I thought) to learn to construct them. They are like a 3 dimensional problem as they go around in a non circular shape and at the same time read as so much information to break them down easily.

    I find the old cars seem to generaly have more character than the newer ones.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The camera is just an exercise to improve skills in modelling and rendering.

    Your 3D modelling is A!. Do you ever consider trying to bring them into your 2D work? How about cityscapes or even doing an abstract? And I don't believe that self portrait is really you.

    Hmm never considered bringing the 3d into the 2d. Well I do airbrushes and edits but I'm assuming you mean making 2d images with the 3d. I think I may lack control to do it.
    ..It sounds weird but I like the idea.

    The self portrait I think I did just before that hamish and andy paint. So its pretty rough and one of the first portraits I tried with painter. At the time I think I was like 'this isnt going anywhere' but then I saw some improvement with the hamish and andy and then pink portraits afterwards... So I think it would be worse not to post it, these are steps to learn from my mistakes.
    Sorry for my grammar.
