    ZZGRST's Sketchbook

    [EDIT 08-jul-10] I think I'll just keep uploading my stuff to my dA (zzgrst@dA) and come back when I'm better, see you there!



    Hello there my good friends!

    Even though I registered a long time ago, I'm a total newcomer here. I have always been tempted to join and make a sketchbook but never truly felt ready...
    until I noticed I'm just loosing precious learning time and helpful advice.

    I have always loved drawing ever since I was young, but I never really got serious with it until about three years ago, until then all I did was scribble from time to time and amaze everyone around me with my bad drawings, looking back I feel it would have been great if I had someone to look up to and compete against.

    Three years ago I was in my first year of college in a telecomunications engineer carreer since I had no other goal in life. Luckily for me I found DeviantArt where I found such great artists that made me notice just how terribly bad I was, this pumped me so much that I began for the first time in my life really drawing seriously, everyday.
    Eventually after 2 years, as I found out how much I loved art over everything else in my life, I decided I didn't want to study that career anymore, It was really depressing having to waste so many hours per day in something you loathe... it took me one year to "convince" (more like argue and fight like crazy) my mother into accepting that I was gonna stop the carreer, and ever since september 2009 I became a free man! and now I can completely devote myself to learning!


    ...........DAMN, that was a long wall of text, now just art related stuff.

    Time to learn!

    Those poses are awesome. Just the amount!
    Also like your sketches, the digitals are kinda meh to me. I would love to see you work on some originals more, the studies are well and good, but after doing one, its best to apply it somehow to an original image.

    Welcome!

    I love Bammes

    Hey, thanks for your comments.

    leanunlibro: Glad you liked them, still a long way to go though.

    Janos: Do you mean I shold no more traditional? Ever since I stopped the career I have barely touched a pencil, do you think I would learn more stuff by drawing IRL?
    And yeah, many of my friends tell me I should do more original stuff, I just almost always feel like I should stop "wasting time" in drawing stuff I like and should concentrate more or actually studying, but I will keep pushing to do more original stuff, thank you.

    I have noticed how people study the skeleton a lot, something I havent really touched much, so I decided to learn them by copying all the bones drawings from Bammes.
    I love this guy's anatomical drawings so damn much , they are just so juicy and life-like.

    Attachment 903663
    It's annoying I took so long to just do these, but I had a pretty hard time imitating his shading and my hand/arm kept hurting all the time! (any advice on how to shade like that?)

    I will continue with these tomorrow morning. See you then.

    ...believe me, you dont want her face.
    I dont know if i got annoyed, tired, or fustrated (or all three at the same time) but decided to leave it for some other time.

    But i was annoyed at fucking it up, so I thoutgh I should practice painting from referencessome more, and why not doing 1 hour timelimit ones? the more the better right?

    Attachment 905346

    Well... fuck

    Its pretty embarrashing seeing these on the forum, I know i shouldnt be too picky but blargh

    I noticed the screen I have the ref one shows the colours differently thatn the one i draw with, and I'm not sure if I can calibrate it correctly? Is it needed to ahve two monitors of the same model so they show the images perfectly similar?

    And also, what do you guys think I should do? is trying 1hr copies gonna help me morethan anything or is there some other way to improve faster?

    Some time ago I heard ( and agree with ) a saying that went kina like this "Its very important to practice hard, but just as important it's to practice smart"

    Could you guys give me some directions? Any help is appreciated, I'll keep doing stuff I feel necessary too.

    I have to learn faster! work work work

    Didnt do much today, argh, gotta fix that with more work tomorrow.

    Just trying to learn the foot and the scapula, kinda interesting that the biceps connects to the coracoid "raven beak" now that weird hook makes more sense
    Attachment 906315

    Still not really getting the shading properly, cant really imitate properly, maybe it would be better if I took more time, but im caught between "Faster faster!" and " Gotta get it right! slow down"

    I guess i will have to go for quantity
    More stuff tomorrow

    Hey welcome to CA! Woow those are a lot of poses ! Your reference painting is getting there and I really like like the anime pic you did! I know what you mean when you're between "faster faster!" and slowing down to get it right. Perhaps it's best that you do some drawings fast to train yourself and other drawings slower so there's a good balance? But I'm not sure myself haha ^^; I'm sure some veterens have some good advice about that

    Ugh... been feeling kinda sick today and ahvent accomplished much, but I cant help but feel it sounds like an excuse, nothing should stop me from drawing lots and lots

    Attachment 908680

    Everything from imagination except a few arms on the left (i was checking an anatomical figurine to see what muscles went where) and, of course, bammes eyes there in the right.

    I think i should draw the skeletons so I get the shape and proportions in my head, jsut copying bammes once wont be enough


    See ya tomorrow
