Thread: Timaz's Sketchbook
April 24th, 2010 #1
Hey, I'm Thomas, and I'm Dutch. Born on 24/10/1994.
If you have clicked on this sketchbook, PLEASE give me critiques, because I need them.
Anyhow, about me.
My hobbies include drawing, (thai)boxing, bodybuilding. I'm not good at any of those, but I'm trying to improve on all of them.
I don't know yet if I would ever want to do something with drawing - however, my study right now allows me to able to become virtually anything, so I can always fall back on something if drawing doesn't work out.

Okay, so I managed to still crank this out.
Should have lightly shaded the left side of his head.
Scanner doesn't scan as light as I thought after all, but most contrast was lost.

Hey there, why don't you just adjust the contrast and brightness after scanning, in your graphic program?
Quite a neat sketch to start a sketchbook, waiting for more (:

I can't upload anything today, because my scanner doesn't want to scan the whole picture. It's got nothing to do with size settings, because I'm using the same settings as the first picture. The scan preview is also fine, it's just the final scan that sucks. Any help is greatly appreciated. (It's a P713w, FYI)

Scanned these (from yesterday) directly to my USB-stick.
Hate the female drawings, they look too bulky, and their legs are not long enough.

Took a while since my last upload! Luckily we have vacation right now (and homework). Have been doing Posemaniacs recently, and planning on continuing with them. I don't think those sketches are something I should upload: I think that's more practice-work.
Some House sketches (I downloaded the newest episodes, and stopped them at times when I saw an interesting pose; can you guess which people I drew?).
Some Bridgman sketches, too, but the pictures in the book are very grainy at times.

Studies from George Bridgman's "The Human Machine". I am going to buy the book, along with two others from Bridgman.
EDIT: I know one drawing is in it twice, I'm just too damn tired to fix that right now.

Some military guy WIP. I'll post it out now because I probably don't have time for it the rest of this week.

I'm back, after a LONG time-off.
Was busy with school, thaiboxing, working out, etc. etc. you know the excuses. Want to get back into it.
I'll upload some new drawings tomorrow.

From a fighting magazine.
I'm also really experimenting with Loomis right now.

You're doing the right kind of work, just do more! I think it's clear from these that you're focusing on the construction - I like how you've built up the head sketches from House and the Bridgman sketches look good too. By the way, if you didn't buy those books yet, you might want to consider Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life instead. It includes The Human Machine and five other books. Keep it up!

Andrew loomis, couldn't resize them for some reason.
Just found out that most of them exceed the size limit, so I can only post one.

Was on camp, so that's why there were no uploads in a while.
I made a promise to myself that if I want to get good at drawing, I will have to draw (at least) 2 hours a day. 1 hour will be spent drawing from Mr. Bridgman's books, the other hour will be more free drawing. In that hour I also try to draw lots of stick figures as described in Mr. Loomis's book.
Can anyone tell me if this is the way I should work from Bridgman's book? Cause most of this is just copying. What I'm trying to focus on is also to get my pen strokes light.
