    Andrew's sketchbook

    Awright, well... I'd like to say hello to all Conceptart.org community in first place and, mainly, congratulate you guys for this incredible feedback you give to begginer artists in order to help em improve their art. That's actually what motivated me to keep visiting this forums aswell as coming here to build up this thread in which I'm planning to post my own sketches.

    So ern well, I'm Andrew, a 21 years-old Biology undergraduate student from Brazil. I was leaned to art as long as I can remember, but just about 3 years ago I'd say this particular subject turn out to me as something I would like to work with, as a professional.

    So, basically, I'm willing to be utterly overwhelmed with book suggestions, general criticism and anything that can help me improve my art.

    Thank you guys, in advance!

    You have some pretty interesting characters but your faces and anatomy need some work. Check out Burne Hogarthe, He is like the master of anatomy.
    Check out the sketchbook,you know you want to...it has airbrush and other cool stuff in it!

    Does any of you guys have good suggestions on what should I focus as a beginner?!
    My interest range is pretty wide, but I'd wish to get more into landscapes and environment universe.

    Also, I feel a deep need to get used to correct shapes and shadows
    Please guys, I would seriously appreciate some good book recommendations here.
    Thank you

    Well, here's what I've been focusing the whole day on!! I'm basically reading a chapter of random Burne Hogarth books and practicing what I've learned on theory. More to come guys:
    And no, I didn't mean to make a crucifixion at first hahaha =P

    I'm sure that if you keep practicing hard and not mindlessly (not just trying to fill up a sketchbook) then you'll definitely improve.

    Also, apparently Hogarth books are really shitty. There are better books out there, I found a list:

    So yeah!! Back on track after a while!!
    Just before any new drawings, I'd like to say I just got myself started at SCULPTING! How awesome is that? Never thought it could be such an addicting hobby! Man, I'm totally indulging my cravings for it!

    This is my first model, being sculpted after some humanoid, dunno exactly which one it's gonna be! Already done with the armature, and basic clay addings...
    Tomorrow I'm go'n through the first layer of muscles. Oh, and it's probably say'n "Hi" to reopen my sketchbook hehe.

    Pretty background , and your portrait has a pile of improvement.
    I'd really like to see some updated figure drawing to see how much you've improved since post 5
    Better keep posting!!!

    Thank you, Rhubix! I really appreciate your comment!
    Truth is I'm still trying to improve my figure drawing. Unfortunately for that, I've been getting myself busy with environments and inanimate objects. That last portrait was just some gift to a really lovely girl of mine. But I guess down below you can find some of the (few) figure-related drawings made meanwhile. All of those are Spell Buttons for a Myth Entertainment Fantasy Game called "Phobos". I'll make sure more is coming...

    Here's a quick cover of what I call "Adventures of the coward hunter". My sister completes 2 years now and I'm like to be the old storytelling-brother... This made me write a series of 25 short stories and draw this piece to cover it all up.

    Hi there! You have pretty charming drawing here...I like how your lines are so innocent. (I tend to use weird arty words, if you don't understand let me know)

    I keep saying this to people, and I'll do it again here. When drawing from observation, try to find the skeleton of the object. Try to draw points in where joints are and connect it first. No outlines. All the surface detail should be the result of your searching marks for skeleton.

    Been kinda unsatisfied with my previous illustration that came out from my perspective studies. Also, I feel like the overall composition could be a tad better.
    Coming from the falling angel concept idea, I brought you what may be my next challenge... switching both boring towers by a cylindric form in a 3-point perspective that should add more interesting details/highlights aaaand add up the composition as the Babylonian Babel Tower...

    WIP:

    This is what I've got from it without the precious tips from David a Ray and Stormslegacy from the CA Critique Center (at here). Hope to fix this in the future. And once again, thank you for the thoughts guys. I really appreciate that!

    Wow, compared to your first posts your artwork has come on leaps and bounds. It is lovely to see. Like someone posted earlier, would love to see how your figurative work has come along since you started.

    What the last two people said, you defiantly have gotten better. But still work on your human and animal anatomy, the more you do, the better you get.
    Also, liking the tower piece, nice perspective.

    nice place for studies

    A spectral wolf

    @Demon Lizardman
    Thank you for your considerations man, I really appreciate that! & THE WEBSITE! Already sticked in my browser (cuz I couldn't to it in my own forehead ! ) Thank you, really! I'm utterly glad.
    @jablar
    Thank you! Took the techniques from Burne Hogarth's books... a really nice reference when it comes to forms, in my opinion.
    @RustedSilver
    Thanks man! You know, the greatest thing about CA is to see people who pursue art with passion, even when it comes from a rookie artist like me. Comments like yours really gives people more fuel to burn.

    I promise to post new figure drawings, but for now I've being sketching up what the modelers are going for at that Shaman's summons. Here's a spectral wolf!!
