    Cool Zenit's sketchbook

    Well, I have to admit I'm not at the same level the rest of the people who are here; but anyway I just felt like putting here my sketchbook.

    Some info about me: Name's Zenit Yerkes, a 15 year old artist wannabe who has been around 11 months drawing; since the 11th of January. I have no patience for anything, that's why I don't spent much time in sketching something (around 10 mins).

    Some of the progress achieved since then:

    Some ballpoint practice using Reilly's Quick Head Sketch Method.

    I'm trying to update this daily and post something interesting everyday, so if you have any suggestions or comments feel free to make them.

    cool! Seeing as youre onely 15. you shouldent wory about not having the patience to draw. it comes with age. or atleast it did with me

    Your 15? Your off on a good start, keep practicing and do some anatomy studies, your young so you should pick it up fairly fast.

    My only suggestion is maybe to resize the pictures smaller, im using a 24inch widescreen monitor and they are pretty large for me.

    just try to concentrate on longer studies, learn perspective, standard proportions, shading volumes, drawing tons of squares in space ect

    Your pen figure drawings have a great sense of movement, try not to loose that.

    Do you animate?

    keep it up, post your studies and all that junk

    Yup perspective and standard proportions should be on your list of things to get down. It will be tedious but very rewarding.

    So there they go some more rubbish for the recycle bin.

    Currently having issues related to typical beginner drama:

    - Don't know what to do to fix anything or how to study anything
    - The "oh shit this guy is awesome and I am poo" syndrome
    - More issues will be found at http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho....php?p=2541545

    @DstraX: Thanks, I am looking for some good art books at the moment to make some kind of serious study.

    @TopSecret: From now on they'll be on 800px or less; but the first pics won't be resized: the originals are in PNG and then changing their format to GIF, resizing and doing all the attachment managing will take me a lot of time.

    @Zazers: Nope, I don't animate but got I'm used to the action line since I began to draw.

    @laxon: As said, it's easy to say "Yeah so study and make some anatomy practice and you'll go fine". I'm struggling with finding a method to build up the figure currently, and when accomplished I'll do some serious study with perspective, proportion and anatomy.

    Goddamn. You improve like a man possessed. In eleven months, you've accomplished what I couldn't do in years. Eleven Months. You may be the most talented person I have ever seen. Keep drawing.

    You kid me?

    If I were talented I'd post something mid-decent. Those are only rough sketches and I am not able to do anything else due to the lack of patience.

    I wished I could get into detail or stay like two days with the same drawing, I simply can't.

    Anyway, thanks for the comment.

    The only one holding you back is you. Slooooooow doooooooown, mang.

    Force yourself to, at this point it doesn't matter how long it takes you to finish something, just learn how to slow down. You can worry about speeding up your process later when you actually learn the basics.

    And I try, just I'm impatient and can't keep my ass on the seat more than 20 mins. But yes, it'd be good to slow down, I know.

    And also, some more figure drawing. Since I'm if not happy, at least not unhappy with the approach done I think I'm gonna do some anatomy study from now on.

    No excuses, just do it. Even if it takes you several sessions of getting up to take breaks, just come back and continue what you were working on last.

    You can't rush your studies. I'm not saying this to be a jerk, but you have to really put your foot down on this sort of thing.

    I wasn't being in a "Yes yes of course blah blah blah not gonna do it" mood. I DO know I need to slow down and make this arse stay in its place for some time. And I AM gonna do it, but it'd take its time.

    Anatomy studies, this time playing with the muscles. I did them in ballpoint pens, blue for the bones, red for the muscles.

    Practice done among these days

    Ballpoint and pencils, very simple stuff. Don't expect any DaVinci or Rembrandt.

    Yet.

    I can see some confident lines in some of your figures and your poses show some nice expression as well - check out Gesture drawing, it's a nice exercise.

    If you haven't tried Glenn Vilppu's Drawing Manual, you should. His method would compliment the way you draw your figures.

    Nice sketch book, it's very fun to look at. I wanted to say something about the whole 'slow[ing] down' thing [keep in mind I could just be misunderstanding what that means] I think that that's not necessarily what you need to do. I mean as long as you go back to check your proportions and keep a line that's sensitive to what you're drawing is there really a problem with drawing quickly? I can imagine that resolving those issues might cause you to slow down but I don't think slowing down alone will help any thing and if it just makes your work more mechanical then you'll be loosing something. Anyway, my rant's done XD. Oh, I really like the conquistador just keep an eye on the proportions next time. The legs are really long and the same with the arms. Legs are about half the body if I remember right and an extended arm comes down to the level of the crotch. The angle of the shoulders also seems shallow in relation to that of the hips. But it looks good and I complement you on that . Good luck getting even better.

    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

    Some drama: The Story of Mr Egg

    In answer to Ryan K, I'm actually trying Vilppu; and to strange1900, I'll take care of proportions from now on.
