    Sacari's Sketchbook

    Edit: I'm 18 now, and I'm a first year Illustration student at Sheridan College. C&C is always welcome!

    So I've been lurking on the forum for a while and finally decided to make an account. I figured a sketchbook might be a good thing to start here

    I started drawing....... I'm not really sure. I'm seventeen now, been following the art program at school. I hope to go to Emily Carr next year, probably ending up in Illustration (or maybe Animation, but I'm starting to lean towards Illustration).
    I started out drawing manga and anime years ago, and I REALLY want to get away from it. I still love anime, but it's not what I want to do with my art. And my life drawing teacher last semester pointed out that most of my life drawing looked "anime-influenced".
    Right now, I'm trying to work on getting rid of most of that anime influence by doing more life drawing studies etc.

    To start off with, here's some of the stuff I did in my life drawing class.

    Welcome to CA.org hope your stay here is fruitful and lively lol. These look nice. Hope to see more from you. Try and do some still lifes/drawing from life that will help you a lot if you didn't already know that. is that you or did you draw/whatever of another person?

    Diarum - Thanks! I'm definitely trying to get into the still lifes etc. to help get my style a bit more realistic. I'm trying to do some sketches everyday of random objects and people or anything else from life, I'll post some up once I scan them. The first one is a self-portrait that I did for my summative. So yup, that's me

    congadingsda - Thanks! I'm really happy with how that one turned out. Never really used charcoal before I took the class, so it was pretty different.

    So here's some sketches I've done over the past few days. I got myself a new sketchbook only for lifedrawing sketches and stuff.
    Since lifedrawing is over, I don't have access to a model anymore I've just been using the internet for a reference.
    Really unhappy with the gestures, I don't like small paper! I'm used to 20" x 26" for my gestures, so putting multiple ones on 9" x 12" did not work out. I'll probably start using the full page for those.

    On the last one the knee got cut off since my scanner isn't quite big enough to scan a full page.

    So over the last week I've been working on the drawing test for my Sheridan Illustration portfolio. I just need to do one more, and then I'm done.
    I think most of them need a bit more work, they look too unfinished. Any comments would be appreciated!

    1. Seated figure. My boyfriend decided to pose for me. I think I'm going to try copying this one out again, to fit that foot in. I don't like how it's chopped off.
    2. Standing figure. Again my boyfriend. Doesn't look like him, but oh well... Pretty happy with the body.
    3. Figure doing an everyday activity. My little brother, playing playstation. Which is pretty much his only everyday activity. It actually looks like him, which is a surprise.
    4. Figure in an interior, not done in pencil. I used a pen. Again, my brother. I cooked him breakfast as a bribe to sit still. I like using pen, so I'm pretty happy with this. His face looks kind of off...
    5. Still-life. I still need to do the second half of this.
    6. View out of a window, including some of the interior.


    Edit: My computer seems to have screwed up some of these pics... I'll see if I can get better ones tomorrow. I'm too tired!

    So here's some sketches from school.

    We've started this painting unit, and I have no idea what the teacher wants. No one really does, she totally contradicts herself! But oh well....
    I started off with jellyfish (I picked a random word out of the dictionary... seriously not impressed with her, I didn't really care) but it wasn't "Deep" enough of a concept.
    But apparently videogames is!
    I do not understand her.

    Gogo sheridan . I like your colour drawings from feb 15th and the looseness of your lines. Though you need to work on your anatomy (studies, etc.). Otherwise good start

    yep i agree! great start but some anatomy study (loomis, bridgman, hogarth) or life drawing would really help you out. they'll also teach you to think about objects as 3D masses instead of in terms of outlines, which makes perspective and foreshortening so much easier

    flash jordan & NeonDuck - Thanks! I agree that anatomy is what I need to improve... I wish I could take another life drawing class but it doesn't look like a possibility until university I found it so helpful. I've been hearing alot about Bridgeman and Loomis so I think my next goal will be to track down one of their books...

    Dy.laneA - Yup, go canada Thank you

    Here's some sketches I did last night.

    The figures were drawn for pics on characterdesigns.com.

    I need to work on my mechanical stuff.... I gave up on that camera.
