Thread: the sketchbook
February 23rd, 2010 #1
yeah so a little about me, i been a member for along time but never post just read post and drool over alot of people work. i haven't drawn in over 2yrs but since losing my "job" i thought man i hated it with a passion and want to give the art-world a shot again. i use to do alot of freelance animation but i still would love to improve my illustration and concept drawing. one thing i know i do wrong is put in details while sketching and i'm trying to break the habit along with drawing things i don't draw.
all this is from my sketchbook
life drawing of DUCKIES!!!!!!!
some form studies from the book "Drawing from Life" as ref
More Life drawing
and self portraits

You have some good ideas in the fantasy stuff! For the life drawings I'd recommend breaking everything up into shapes first, when you get the shapes and proportions right, then start adding details.

Those landscape ones are pretty neat. Keep this up!
I suppose no matter what I'm drawing, there will always be some sort of question in my mind about it. A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.

Keep it coming!
Do you want to go in a specific direction, artwise?
My sketchbook contains cartoon studies and Pokémon.
