    tdHendrix's Sketchbook (2D/3D)

    Hey everyone. I haven't been drawing much lately, so I wanted to start a sketchbook to help motivate me to start drawing more. I'm currently a student at the Academy of Art and since school is gonna start again soon, I wanna start practicing my drawing now so I'll be ready for when school starts.

    This first post is a bunch of older stuff. Everything except for the 3D model of the female torso was done for various school assignments. All of them were done the night before they were due, so I still consider them works in progress

    I have the Structure of Man DVDs and I plan on mainly focusing on just following along with the DVDs to help learn anatomy and how to draw people better, so you'll probably start seeing a lot of stuff from the DVDs in later posts.

    This is from the beginning of the DVDs. Trying to learn where everything goes in the front, side, back, and 3/4 view. I don't have a scanner so I have to take pics with my digital camera, so I'll try to get the best quality I can.

    nice start, your from san fran? I'm goin over there in february to visited pixar and companies alike whats it like over there?

    as for comments... the 3D looks good, but it would be helpfull if you's post the wires next to it so we can comment on that too.
    For the perspective drawingns, unless u want to vectorize those sketches u dont want to overdraw them with perfect PS lines, its just ugly. A drawing was much more 'soul' if you leave the original lines and just clean those up.

    keep on working

    SF is a cool place. People are laid back here. A lot of different people live here from all over the world, so most people are tolerant of people different than them. There's a lot of homeless people here. When they ask for change just shake your head or just say no and they'll usually go away. The weather is usually kinda chilly and windy. Even if it's nice outside during the day, always bring a jacket with you. The weather can change fast and at night it usually gets cold. You can tell who the tourists are by seeing who's wearing short sleeves and shorts when it's cold at night

    Also, stay away from the Tenderloin if you can. It's an area kinda close to downtown where a lot of homeless people are and it's not a good area, but if you walk through there during the day it'll be alright.

    Now that you mention it, I agree about the PS drawings. How can I clean up my sketch in PS without taking away its soul? Stay away from the line tool and just use the brush with a tablet?

    Here's low and high rez pics of the wires.

    A little update. I think soon I might be able to start drawing more interesting stuff to show. The 3/4 view of the skull is difficult for me right now. Mainly drawing the opposite eye socket and getting the mouth line to curve correctly are what I have the most difficult with.

    I wanna start getting into digital painting, so I tried to make a sphere in Photoshop. I didn't have reference for it. Just trying to get used to shading digitally. I plan on just practicing with spheres, cylinders, eggs, etc. for a while.

    Thanks Icedearth!

    Here's something I did in ZBrush. I watched a tutorial from Gnomonology on how to make a rockface and then I added the fence.

    I can't helpl you much with the ZBrush stuff.
    On that last value study (with the ball) the diffusion of the dropshadow is missing. also try to define the ground plane more.

    Thanks for the tut. I'll check it out and go through it later.

    Here's a Photoshop egg. I want to do more studies of eggs, but I need to buy white eggs so I can see the values easier. Right now I only have brown eggs.

    Eggs are great to draw from, more of an organic shape than a sphere. I've boiled eggs and covered them in chalk before when I didn't have white ones. Seems a bit excessive maybe but it was wet outside and I didn't want to walk to the shop!
    Your dark area is looking a bit flat atm, try to really push that core shadow and smooth out the reflect light a bit.

    Peace!
    Dan

    Agreed,
    diffuse the shadow more,
    And don't forget about reflected light from the paper to the back of the egg
