    Norris' Sketchbook

    Hi Guys,

    Been browsing this site for a month or so now, and thought I'd better actually get some work done and uploaded to here, as there are some great artists, and i am hoping that some will crit my work and i can get better!

    I like all sorts of styles, and try and be a little versatile, but am probably not!

    I am at work at the moment, so will get some stuff uploaded when i get home from night shifts!

    Enjoy and let me know what you think!

    Cheers
    Norris

    OK,

    So finally getting my work stuff sorted, and this is a piece i found on the computer, and I am in the middle of photographing the rest, so will get it up ASAP.

    Let me know what you think ... this was just a doodle done at work, then played wih in Photoshop ... not a lot done to it to be honest. Ill post the original if your interested.

    Cheers
    Norris

    OK, so here is the first lot of artwork that i could find around the house ... although I am missing a load ... and still trying to track that down ... but let me know what you think ... most of this is from when I was about 16-18.

    The ladies are done from when i attended life drawing classes ... and looking forward to going again soon!

    Cheers

    yay studies. i love seeing these. ;]

    as for the female vs. male study, the female hips are higher and much different than the males.

    i would recommend you read and then copy/study Andrew Loomis' "Figure Drawing for All Its Worth" here and the Heads and Hands one is great too! if you want them in pdf, i'm sure you can find them via google.

    it has helped me learn a lot about the figure and think in different ways than if i were doing it on my own. any Andrew Loomis book is worth your time :]

    keep workin hard! ;]
