Thread: My first sketchbook...
February 27th, 2010 #16
It's been a week...
I know I haven't been updating my sketchbook at all this week but that doesn't mean that I wasn't drawing. In fact I've been drawing every night. I haven't really had the chance to scan everything and upload it here. It's really time consuming to upload work on here. I wish the process was a little bit faster. Anyway, some anatomy stuff and work from imagination.

some more studies and some imagination stuff...
Just some still life's and a drawing I did in Photoshop. I didn't get to finish painting the still life's because the light was gradually changing so I just stopped. I have more sketches in my sketchbook but I haven't had a chance to scan anything yet. I'll probably do that tonight. After my last still life painting I'm beginning to feel a little more confident with myself and I think I was having more of an overwhelming/psychological problem when I would sit down and paint. I'm noticing that I don't have that problem as much. Enjoy!

another painting in progress...
This is a painting I started today. Overall I'm liking how it's coming out. I need to fix the window a bit but I think I'm going to try and finish this tomorrow. I'm not as overwhelmed as I used to when starting a painting and worrying whether or not it's going to be bad. I think that was one of my problems when painting in the first place. There main purpose is to gain more practice and learn from it so when I paint out of my head, I'll have a better vocabulary on what I'm doing. I'll be posting more soon.

Lav - Thanks for the comment
Some sketches I did later today. After drawing the dog from imagination, I realized I need to keep doing more animal drawings because I had some difficulty with it and realized that I had confused myself with something else. Stupid me. Oh well. Enjoy.

You've got a really nice start here. Your hands are looking great and your painted work has a nice feel for shades and lights. I do think you can benefit more from doing figure studies. Your monster things look really creepy, but the anatomy looks a little skewed still.

some sketches I did last night...
ActonArt -- Thanks for the comment. As for the skewed anatomy, I sometimes like to do that on purpose because I like the way it looks but I can see what you're saying. Doing more figure studies wouldn't hurt me.
These are some sketches I did last night. Comments and suggestions always welcome.

keep going more life studies try establishing simple geo form in you bodies then add detail.it is better to have sketched and sucked than to never have sketched at all.

Devere -- Thanks for the comment. I try breaking up the tones geometrically but it's difficult to do that sometimes if you have very subtle lighting. Thats something I've noticed. I try to do some kind of painting everyday but it's hard to find the time.
Some more sketches I did yesterday. I think I was tired so some didn't come out as good as I thought. Some are from photos and others are from imagination.

Another painting study...
This is another still life I did today. I never painted a clear cup before and was a little nervous I wouldn't be able to paint it. I really need to stop being afraid of things because I think sometimes that I'm my own worst enemy. Comments and suggestions always welcome.
