    sala's sketchbook

    These are a few images from my sketchbook from this year. I'm studying design at polytech, so I just draw in my sketchbook when ever I have spare time. Most of these are from my imagination and I probably used some photos for reference. Tell me what you think?

    Last years attempts at digital painting. June 09

    I haven't posted anything up here in a while so I thought I'd put something up. I want to aim at posting something up at least every week to show my work in progress and I thought it be best to start from the beginning. Here are my digital sketches ( or failed attempts ) on PS. Most of them will be grouped in months and most of them are unfinished!! So tell me what you think

    Last years attempts at digital painting. July 09

    Here is the bunch that I did in July, these were drawn using a 4x6" bamboo fun tablet. Small and annoying, didn't give me much space to work with and I kept getting aches in my wrist, I seriously needed to upgrade to an intuos and bigger too.

    Last years attempts at digital painting. August 09

    Hmm.. Well it looks like I haven't done much drawing and the stuff that I was producing don't seem that great. I think I was struggling a lot with colour and also proportion in the anatomy, drawing on a tablet compared to drawing straight on paper is a lot harder. And I feel way more comfortable with a pencil in my hand. But I want to better my skills with the tablet (hopefully get better)

    Welcome and nice start to your SB. I see some very expressive lines in your sketches. Try to do some focused anatomy studies (from life, and photos) and you'll create a good foundation for fleshing out your characters and ideas.

    Hey thanks for that helpful advice, I do a lot of gestural lines in my sketches but I think I need to nail down on the anatomy, yes I do think studying from life would help thanks

    Thanks for the thread link, very useful

    w.i.p

    Haven't posted anythin up in a while, was hoping to put something up at least weekly!! well this is something i've been working on. Thought I;d try and do a couple of artist studies. This one here is of one of my favourite concept artists Daryl Mandryk, the next one isn't an artist study I tried painting it in under an hour this is how far i've got lol
