    Kayrns Sketchbook

    Hey guys
    Here is my sketchbook. Iv only been drawing seriously for a couple months. I plan on doing about 1 page a day of random crap, and then a 1 bigger piece a week.

    BTW: I suck at digi painting. I have a nice 6x8 intuos 3 going completely to waste so i plan to remedy that.

    Kayrn tries some digital stuff

    here are some gestures and a super fast digi that i did this morning. Probably about 30 mins on the eye. I am still trying to get comfortable drawing with the tablet.

    This is a good start Kayrn. What sources are you using for anatomy and structure? I would suggest Bridgman and Loomis if you haven't found them already, you are on the right track though by studying anatomy. Digital becomes easy to control after you have used a tablet for a while. Keep it up!

    More gestures and the start of a WIP

    so... its the weekend, and i have had plenty of time to draw

    aside from the bridgemans, i put up a wip for a digipainting i want to start. Its gonna be a hand holding a sickle, and depending on how i feel, will either morph into a soviet-esque thingy or concept art for a DnD character. If anyone has any critiques on the basics i laid down, speak up!

    prob all im gonna to for today

    PS: notice how one could use their left hand as a ref for that piece?

    I'm with Krato on this one. For the time being, put the digital at side when you're studying and study form, perspective and point of view. For example, look at that hand holding the sickle, it's a bit off bcause the hand bend in one direction while the sickle bends in the opposite direction, pick up an object like a pipe or something and assume the same position.


    Kep it up! Remember, one study per day keep the lazines at bay.

    Lord M: I agree. I think im getting a bit overzealous with the digital, only beacuse its easier than scanning (my printer is... interesting). Imma bring back the paper+pencil. I see what you're talking about with the hand. I might fix it, or else i will just set it aside so i can do some more study.

    I have an idea to keep myself on track with the studies. I am gonna set up a schedule of topics to do studies on. I am going to do 2 sets of studies each day (beat me if i dont ) from the following list (1 from head, 1 from body). I think this will make sure that I disperse my absorption of anatomy.

    1) Head
    The Nose/Mouth
    Eyes
    The Ear
    Full Construction
    Neck

    2) The Body
    Arms
    Legs
    Torso
    Hips
    Hands
    Feet

    Here are the two from today. Sorry about the crappy scan...

    Heya! Well to improve your drawings you should first work in the intention with a few lines then build an structure on it, only if you have truly succeeded in this steps you should start adding details or rendering otherwise forget about that.........Keep working hard!

    PS: Don't be afraid to scratch the paper as much as you need

    Sketch Dump

    Scanner on the fritz for last couple days. Found old sketchbook! I scanned some, and made a minisketchbook out of the remaining pages that fits in my coat pocket for on-the-go life drawing. The Masked Man was a thing i started, but it spiraled out of interest in a flaming shit-crash. I havn't done many studies, but that will change this weekend. Also some posemaniacs, cuz those are always good. My personal favorite is the last pic with the sniper rifle.

    I finaly got around to scanning a couple of studies in. Been really busy with school, but it should lighten up now. I feel like the brigemans are improving, which is a good sign!
