    Lewis' sketchbook! Time to level up!

    Hello everybody. Been lurking around the forum for a while and have been meaning to sign up and start my own sketchbook thread for ages but never got round to doing it. Well I have now, and here it is!

    i aim to try and post something everyday here to document my progress as an artist and also to keep me motivated.

    Ive always been drawing since I was a kid but over the last few years i kind of got lazy and drawing just stopped happening so much. Now I am loving it again and am 100 % certain i want to pursue a career in Art in the design/concept art area of things.

    Of course crits and comments are welcome and I look forward to hearing from everybody.

    wow, i think you studies are very nice.

    i dont know how to explain, but you do sometinhg with the volume and proportions that gives perspective to your drawings, gives it a sense of dimension...

    and you do this without oversizeing or exaggerating anything or any proportion.. i felt that in some heads and hands

    cant wait to see more, and finished pieces too!

    Good job churning out all those posemaniacs studies - make sure to do stuff from other kinds of ref too though (photos/life) as whilst posemaniacs is good for quick gesture studies the poses themselves aren't always very correct anatomically in terms of looking like natural balanced poses.

    Good studies! I really like the musicians. When drawing heads you seem to jump to the features to early before making sure the structure of the head is correct. I used to make the same mistake. Study the skull and basic proportions a little more to get a good head structure to put the features on. Also remember that eyes and noses are 3d forms and not just lines. Here's a link that might help:

    Good luck!

    anatomy

    Hey thanks for the advice, I agree with what you said about jumping to the features to early. Need to slow down. That link has some really useful stuff, heres some stuff I did on the head and torso from that site and Burne Hogarths Dynamic Anatomy.

    OMG I havent posted here in like a year! Time to get on with it!

    So I started my third year at Uni and things got intense and very busy so I sort of stopped posting here....but i have graduated now with a degree in Illustration ! Below is the work from one of my final uni projects, I worked on it collaboratively with a friend, it is called 'The Legend of Alintoo Island'

    The Legend of Alintoo island is and informative fictional discovery book. It follows C.Chambers and F.Bodell as they make a voyage from England to the United States in the early 20th Century. The pair, who we assume are making the voyage with the aim of continuing their botanical and biological research, unexpectedly become explorers as a mid-atlantic storm throws them off course and they 'stumble' across and uncharted island. Setting foot on the new land, they quickly realise that it is no ordinary place. It is inhabited by animals, creatures and beings of equal or greater human intelligence. They begin a journey around the island which will see them encounter several landscapes, environments, dangers, creatures and cultures. They document several drawings and images of the island as they travel and instead of being strongly narrative-based, our book tells of their journey only through the catalogue of drawings and writing made and objects collected by the pair. This way, our book is a visual compilation and not necessarily a front-to-back read. It leaves a lot of scope for the reader to determine their own narrative, although the pair's actions are well documented by the writings they keep.

    Our project aim was only to create the first chapter by assessment. We now intend to continue this project to complete the book over the coming year.

    Comments and feedback very much welcome and appreciated!

    A work in progress of something I just started painting without really thinking, Its going okay I guess, I always enjoy the first stages of painting with big energetic marks but then have trouble when it comes to refining details, sometimes values and shape contrasts start to blur together and some of the initial energy gets lost, if that makes any sense...... hopefully doing some more studies will help me with this.

    Advice and critiques welcome as always!

    That project is such a fabulous idea! I looks sweet!
    I envied illustration students a little for getting to do such big elaborate pieces. I have trouble switching from animator mode to illustrator mode -and end up doing lots of quick and dirty stuff instead of elaborate single pieces.
    Really inspiring piece you've got there!

    Rhubix - Thanks alot! I know what you mean, I am the same in that I do a lot of sketching and rarely finished pieces it seems. The great thing about doing a book and especially one that is presented in the form of notes is that you can do rough and dirty stuff and still use it in the final!

    Dog-faced - Thanks also. I find it hard to loosen up the same when drawing from imagination but I hope that this will become easier as my anatomy knowledge and also general drawing and painting knowledge improves from studies. I will make sure I do some more stuff from imagination and post it soon though.

    Here is some Loomis proportion studies, some bridgman head studies, posemaniacs and some general figure/face sketching for today.

    uh, welcome back I guess. Nice drawings, I like how solid they look! Nice gestures too. I suggest trying out the links in my signature, you might like them better than posy.

    glad I could help, nice work on the paintings! Something's off with the highlights through, they don't actually appear in the center of the light side. Where the highlight is depends on the direction of the light and where you're looking from. So rather than having a circle of bright light ont he sphere that gradually gets darker until it gets lighter in the reflected light, you;re going to have a big shape of uniform light value that gradually turns dark then light in the reflected light, and in some area that big uniform light other than it's center there will be a little spot of highlight.

    Vertical - Thanks for the info about the highlights, I never really thought about it like that before but it makes a lot of sense now, will fix them and re post tomorrow just to make sure I understand.

    A Faux - Thanks, I'm glad you like!

    Sean McClain - Thanks also!

    Below is what I did earlier today, had the theme for the current CHoW in mind but dont know if I can finish in time as I started late but I will try. I have a really difficult time with legs, if anyone has any advice in that area it would greatly help!

    Great sketchbook! I'm thrilled to death with your book samples - it is definitely something I would love to read and own.
