    John Troive's Sketchbook

    Im a 20 year old 3D-graphic student with great passion for 2D art. I started this sketchbook to improve my speed, anathomy, posing/composing and over all skill.



    Here comes my my first practice. Its focused on speed.

    Rules are easy:
    - themes are generated by 3CHMODS
    - No more no less than 30 minutes
    - when it comes to photo references, textures, brushes etc. The category is "anything goes"
    -Photoshop
    -1024x2048

    I think you should work on traditional drawing before tackling digital. Since you're trying to tackle a problem within a time limit, you should focus on what is essential in making the image read, because when I look at these I can't tell what a lot of the stuff in the painting is; so you should focus on getting simple values in that read and a strong composition. You need to work on your values, as well as anatomy ( which I'd recommend studying Bridgman ). Also draw from life and imagination of course, and that's how you will really improve most. Hope to see some drawings soon; keep it up.

    Yes you can never get enought anatomy practice. Im actually studying Loomis anatomy right now and im learning every day =)

    Its hard to paint a whole detailed concept in 30 minutes, thats why many details ends up in a mess. Some of the details doesnt even depicts anything. The messy details is just to enhance the detailed feel and also a chance for the observer to fill in the gaps him/herself.

    Yeah hopefully i will post up some plain drawings in near future, The problem is that i have a tendency to finish everything i start in full color .

    Thanks a lot for dropping by Jeremy! And thanks for the feedback!


    Here is a self portrait i made on my way to school the day before yesterday.

    Nice to see you drop by congadingsda =). I dont know if its just me but i feel more confortable drawing digitaly. It feels strange to pick up an ordinary pen and paper and start drawing. Especially when im allways having a computer in an arms range. But since you would like to see some, i will fix something for you as soon as i get my hands on a scanner =)!


    Here is a concept i made today of an alien creature. Its a possible candidate for our character modeling project that we will have in school in a couple of weeks. It would be awesome with some feedback on it!

    Love this sketchbook! (I know that's not very helpful, but I can't think of any critique to post. ) I hope you update again soon.

    Unfortunately I can only see the supersonic skeletons, there must be something wrong with my internet connection, but it looks great! My only comment is that your edges seem very fuzzy, if you sharpened things up, especially the figure on the right, it would really take it to the next level. I hope I can see your other pieces on another computer! hahah, I'll be baaaaack.
