    Drumming & Drawing -- REVISED!

    Aloha!



    New guy from Denmark speaking!

    I used to draw a lot as a kid and I remember wanting to become an animator, an illustrator, or maybe graphic designer -- just about anything that had to do with creating something visual. My parents, school teachers, etc. really did encouraged me to follow that path, or whatever path I wanted to follow, but they wanted me to go high school (i.e. the Danish equivalence, which is actually somewhere in between high school and college: the gymnasium) before doing anything else.
    I had also been playing some music, and when I started high school I had gotten pretty serious about playing music - and of course I was also just busy being a teen. My drawing though had been reduced to occasional sketched during class...
    After studying a year at the conservatory I began thinking, that maybe music wasn't the only thing for me after all — what about art? At least I became very unsure, and I still am — but, now I've taken a break from my studies at the conservatory to study classical drawing for one semester and think things through.

    The course started a couple of weeks ago so I already have a bunch of work, that I'll be uploading to this sketchbook. I'll try putting the stuff, I've done so far, up chronologically...



    This first bunch of drawings is just from my sketchbook from January 4-5th:

    Welcome JoFi ^^
    I somewhat belive this will be interesting to see your sketchbook after a while, escpecially if you want some building critique ^^ your ideas seem fun, and your gestures fine, but you should look for some better method of making those gestures, you can do it alot faster too and maybe even more fun, nothing hard to learn, just diffrend approach =D like this http://www.art.net/Studios/visual/Re...eDrawing2.html

    i like your start ^^ hope you enjoy your stay here (lol somewhat funny to say this.. im pretty new too..)

    but however =D work hard and never give up ^^

    Thanks for the welcome. I guess I could welcome you too, maybe...?

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'gestures'. They're just quick sketches of my class mates and some random people...

    Anyway, here's some more work:

    These are 30 sec, 1, 2, and 5 minute poses, but I don't remember what's what.

    Our teacher told us to copy some drawings from "Die Gestalt des Menschen", Gottfried Bammes. These are from Jan 17th. I think did one more of the one in the middle:

    And something from this morning. I was told to use fewer lines/strokes. It took me a while to figure out, but I think it's going in the right direction.

    Revised!

    It's been a while...

    For some reason it seems I completely forgot about this sketchbook after only a few days -- I guess my mind was elsewhere.

    For several reasons (and some of which probably are a bit contradicting), in the end, I moved to Copenhagen to study architecture at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, and have more or less completely left my music studies behind me. I'm still torn between music and drawing/architecture, so hopefully someday I'll either accept the necessity of a choice between the two, or, be able to do both...!

    Anyways, I thought I would try and revive this sketchbook of mine! For starters, I'll upload the rest of the stuff I did during the course in classical drawing, chronologically.

    Cheers,
    Joachim

    A leather shoe. A skull and a dead seagull -- an attempt at watercolours. Also some croquis and a longer study.

    Some pastel stuff, portraits, and another attempt at watercolours. We had a workshop for a few days with American artist and teacher Glenn Vilppur, which I remember as being really great.

    I think this is the last stuff I did during the course, though at least the last study of a standing pose is missing -- it just need to be photographed/scanned.

    Perhaps most of this stuff should actually be posted in the Fine Arts forums...?

    Watercolors

    Some experimentation with watercolor -- last one is a quick selfportrait. Crit/comments are much appreciated!
