    Bombur's sketchbook. (Updated!)

    Hello everyone. I am a long time lurker who registered just recently. I'm hoping that starting a sketchbook will motivate me to draw more

    Before I start posting my stuff I guess I should briefly introduce myself:

    My name is Simon, I am 15 years old. I live in Sweden. I enjoy drawing/painting and I want to get better at it, just like everyone else.

    Alrighty, here's some of my recent stuff.
    First image is an eraser I painted from life, it's simple n' all but I'm happy with how it turned out.


    Here's something i painted yesterday. I gave up pretty fast simply because I didn't like it at all. :/


    And a couple of sketchbook pages:

    Hogarth

    Loomis, the one in the down right corner is from photo ref

    From ref

    ref

    Hogarth, really need to get better at figures :/

    Bridgman, the soldier with impractical armor is from mind.


    That's it for now. I'll be updating whenever I do something new, which should hopefully be everyday. Any comments or critiques are very welcome!

    Kfeeras Thanks, yeah I will try to draw/paint from life.

    Well, it's 3 AM now and I just finished this painting. I'm not particularly pleased with it. It's waay to late to keep changing it any more right now though. I had a lot of fun with it though and that's what matters, RITE GUISE?

    studies are doing well... try being a little more deliberate with your linework when doign studies... try being alittle more confident and pick out some solid shapes within body parts.. last post is doing well, some of the figures could use a little lineweigth work.

    keep going .. you are off to a great start!

    Oh yeah, line quality. Need to work on that.

    Two pages of unreferenced stuff, tried working on some facial expressions.

    Did two paintings today. I don't think I've ever finished two paintings in one day

    First one is...um..a labyrinth or something. It was mostly experimentation as I've never done a digital environment before. I shouldn't have started painting the sketch as early as I did. As a result the perspective is skewed.
    Second image is a study from photo.

    Hey man, great sketchbook so far. I love the gestures towards the bottom of post two and the top left guy in post 13.
    Improvement is definately seen.
    Keep up the awesome work!

    your linework is becoming more clear... i believe you need to do some studies on perspective (google or do some youtube videos on 1pt and 2pt perspective for drawing). Looking forward to the next update

    Hey Bombur, thanks for checking out me SB Cool work here man, your studies are really improving all the time. The arm studies in particular look great to me, and the 3d face study. Keep on trucking dude!

    NothingReallyExists Very true. Perspective is something I really need to practice. Should have some studies done by tomorrow.

    etchesofthesun Thanks for the encouragement!

    jatherip Yeah, that sounds like a good idea. I'll do that with future studies.

    Thanks for commenting, dudes.

    Here's a 40 minute apple from life painted in SAI. First time using the program and I love it already.

    I was working on this when I realized how many problems it had. I think i'll just stop here and do some studies instead. No ref.

    I did quite a lot today I think.

    Managed to get a photo study done before I get some sleep. The face is horrible and the legs are too long but I liked the way the clothes turned out so I'm posting it anyway.

    wakoes Thanks

    Here's what I did today:
    -Vanderpoel studies
    -Attempt at using a ballpoint pen
    -Moar pen shit
    -Late night doodling
    -Horrible start at a digital. Pretty sure I won't finish it.
    -An early Sargent study WIP.

    Goddamn, my poses are weak. Really need to work on that.

    hey you got some cool concepts in here, some of your pictures look a little flat, i suggest you push the values more, make some darker darks for example:



    also try not to have your future painting backgrounds go to dark, i would say make it as dark or a little lighter then the darkest color in your character.

    Krato Thanks for the paint-over bro. It is much appreciated. I'll try to bring some more contrast into my next painting.

    Well, today I got next to nothing done. I'm always very tired on mondays. I did try out a new medium though! Which was charcoal. It feels amazing drawing with it, but the result was absolute shit. I need to focus more on construction.
