Thread: Robert's Sketchbook
September 26th, 2009 #1
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:
Art class portrait, drawing the other half of the picture
Digital Sketch, Sketchbook Pro 2010

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.

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.

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
