    Robert's Sketchbook

    Hello ConceptArt,

    Before I get down to business, I'll just introduce myself quick.
    My name is Robert, I'm 16 years old, and have been drawing for a little less than two years.

    I've been looking at a couple of conceptart sketchbooks for a while now and decided to jump in. Improving is so important to me as an artist, so what I'm looking for by being active on this forum is some solid critique on anything and everything.
    Anatomy and value in specific are some of the main areas I would like to improve.

    That being said, here's some very recent stuff:

    That looks like a really neat exercise your teacher had you do. The only thing I can think of to take a second look at would be the highlight along the side of her face. It seems a bit to broad coming down toward her chin, on the photograph it looks as though the actual highlight fades into a very light skin tone that's none the less darker than the white of the highlight itself. I think it's giving her face the appearance of a flat, as opposed to rounded, surface along the side of her face. All that said I could be wrong so if you're happy with it ignore me please it definitely looks good and I can see you have a high standard for 'finished' maybe I'll be competitive for once in my life and try to one up you .

    I have nothing interesting to say but here's my sketchbook, perhaps you'll think I've drawn something interesting XD http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=167964

    strange1900 - I see what you mean about her jaw, and I agree. Thanks for pointing that out. And I guess my standard for finished is high, so maybe that's why I don't do a whole lot of full blown projects out of class.

    Steffler - Thanks man. I actually don't have a whole lot of time though. I get up at 6, get ready and go to school, then have sports year round, so I get home at 7, eat, and do homework. Then if I have time I draw.
    Actually most of my drawing is in places or times I'm not supposed to be doing it. Church class, and before homework, stuff like that.
    But I try to make time, because I love it. Thanks for the comment.

    Towy - Thanks, and I'll try my best. Patience is something I think I struggle with.

    Suzikan - Haha of course If I make any colored pieces, I'll be sure to submit them.

    As for what's new...
    Church is one of my favorite places to draw. People can't do anything at all when you draw them. For example, the girl on the top right of the bottom half of this sketch sheet knew I was drawing her, but she was up in front singing and couldn't do anything about it
    so, these are from today's sermon. The bottom ones are from life, the top is not.
    Crappy ballpoint church pen.

    hey thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. Your hatchings should follow the form of the character. Do some studies and really focus on the form of the face for example and see how the skin wraps around the skull and muscles. Let your hatches follow that same form.

    always make sure your people have enough forehead or you could be like me and over correct so they have TOO much forehead man drawing is a delicate balance.

    keep up the good work.

    Hey good start...no keep working

    Like others have stated finding the structure is key. The hatching is appreciated but make sure the head is in proper proportions. Right now the side and fronts have very big mandibles

    Keep hitting the ref work you'll get it

    Hey man, keep up those observation studies. Do looooooooads of them. If I could go back in time and advice myself on something it would be that It will help inform your visual language and you get to work on so many aspects of your art. Drawing from photographs might not be the best way to spend your studies... there is a tenancy to just 'copy' whats there and not examine it truly. Thats because people tend to treat it differently and over-draw it because the photograph has every details there for you, but if you want to study off photographs treat it like its from life and don't go heavy on the details just because it is there. Edit what you see and choose what to emphasize and what is not necessary to show.
    Keep rocking dude!

    Welcome to CA! Good choice.

    Nice work in here; I have to agree with Bendragon (though without the aid of hindsight bias), I still don't do enough drawing from life.

    Great job!

    This is good what you're doing man. Plugging away at it. With reference at first, but over time, it'll come to you naturally.

    Rock on.

    ---thanks for stopping on my pages.......

    -----wELLCOME tO tHE cLUB bRO... ';D
    i REALLY LIKED THAT THE HALF BY HALF FEMALE PORTRAIT.... & ALSO YOU'VE GOT LOVELY APPLE ON TOP, I LIKE IT TOO.

    -----I'M GOING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING IN MY MIND. ''THERE IS ALWAYS SHARP ON THE LIGHT SIDE BUT EVERYTHING AT THE SHADOW SIDE IS ALWAYS AS SMOOTH AS A BLURTED..." THAT IS WHAT I THINK, PERHAPS MY WRONG-WHO KNOWS.... ';D EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN POINT OF VIEW.....

    -----in my opinion: maybe you shouldn't make that lines on the apple & just try it on the light side & the shadow side is as same as I told you..... Good Luck bro....! The color was lovely such a reality.....

    -----/SORRY ABOUT MY ENGLISH................

    Here is my: S-K-E-T-C-H-B-O-O-K




    /.....if there is someone from AUSTRALIA especially from SYDNEY on this site, then leave a msg for me, and I really want to meet with you & to making a friends-of course if you'd agree it...............please

    Keep it up with the posemaniacs!
    Maybe it's just me, but i find it's alot easier to do quick poses with a regular pencil and paper, instead of digital. Also you could look up vilppu for a great technique for doing fast figures.

    Damn those apple studies... it's good....keep drilling away. You seem to be in one style of facial structure creating. The sketch pro guy is the first stepping away from the look of the other figures. I'm sure you will get it.

    Welcome to CA !.. thanks for dropping by my sb... Nice attempt at the apple study. It look delicious !... Keep churning out those head and figure studies. Not to be anti-digital... dig more into the traditional medium first as they are the foundation for your later digital works..

    Vilppu is a very good suggestion. Learn from his drawing manual. He teaches great stuff !.. If possible, get into an atelier somewhere..
