My name's Cam Sykes. My main interests are Art and Skateboarding. I'm studying to become a professional Artist/Illustrator.
So I've decided to start a new sketchbook with a solid plan. After reviewing my old sketchbook, I didn't feel like I was making much progress considering the time I was putting in. I will be updating everyday, although I might miss a day when I'm tired and would rather sleep than update
I've pretty much finished my illustration course so I have heaps of time to focus on personal projects and studies. I've taken the time to work out a 7-day a week progress schedule to keep me on track. I've tried to balance it so it includes both imagination and reference drawing and painting.
The plan has a focus on Character design so I've got 2 days of characters backed up by portrait and anatomy day, then my extra life drawing classes and outdoor scribble sessions. Should be heaps of fun.
These tasks are the main commitments of those days but I will also want to be getting outdoors and doing sketchbook stuff and public scribbles. I don't want to go too crazy y'know
If you care my old sketchbooks are here
So I'll start with some of my better previous work to kick things off, as well as some things done yesterday that were part of the first Creature Day.
Now for the first creature day tasks - Topic Amphibians
25 gestures from photo's
25 gestures from memory/imagination
based on this week's cow topic
I did some colour but that looked bad so it's greyscale, gave up on it and started some life/photo studies.
and work in progress of my old skateshoe
Now to start my self portrait for Self-Portrait day
