    BluezAce's SB || Updated 3rd February 2011

    Hey everyone! I'm a newbie here, a 20 years-old college student from Indonesia who loves drawing. Like many people, I've been through many hollow years with no goal and purpose. But until recently, I entered college. At first I entered Faculty of Geography, then I get accepted by a goverment-school to study Accounting. But them I realize that I don't like both of them, there's something that really personal and I want to achieve. I want to become better at drawing, expressing my feelings and ideas, and (of course) make a living from my skill. That's why I want to study drawing more seriously

    Many things can be said, but better said it with art, doesn't it? Right now I don't have a good scanner, and I have to scanned my works in my friend house. That's why I can't upload my sketchbook everyday, but I'll try to upload new works of mine every 4-5 days...

    These are few of my recent works, crits and comments are highly appreciated!!

    AND OF COURSE, LAST PAGE = BETTER DRAWINGS

    Two sketches I made for my presentation slide about philosophy and ethic...

    Here's also my first attempt to make a comic, that I finished about a week ago. I made it for a comic contest in my town. However, it's in Indonesian language... (I'll upload the cover next time, because it's too big to use CA's attachment right now)

    Thank you!

    I'm trying to upload my drawings as often as I can. I don't really have internet connection in my home, so I have to go to internet cafe first and couldn't get online often (Pssst... Right now, I'm sneaking in my campus' lab to use its internet :p)

    Maybe it's because I'm still a newbie, but somehow I get a feeling like I'm "a really small fish in a really big pool" from this forum. Just like the first time I joined deviantART hehe...

    Another Drawings! :)

    Today, I could scanned my drawings in my friend's place. These are my drawings from yesterday (and the day before that I think). Actually I did few still life, but I forgot to scan it. I guess I'll upload them next time... >.<

    You are on a good track, just keep it up. Nice studies so far. You should draw more from life. Take your sketchbook where ever you go, always carrying it with you. Study anatomy, it will help you later with your own figures from imagination.

    Thx both of you!

    @ Ivan Turcin
    Life drawing? I'll do that, Sir!!
    Right now I'm limited to do life drawing because of tight schedule (I'm not studying in art-related faculty and I have to do the tasks from lecturer that not related to art, I don't use public transportation so I can't make sketch in trip, etc etc), but I'll try to spend more time drawing from life in the future. Recently, I forced myself to make a still-life drawing at least one drawing a day. Btw, last night I also did a self-portrait! I'll scan it and post it tonight

    @magicpudding
    Hey bro, thx for commenting! I see now that you've put a link to your SB now (that's why the last time you comment, I wondered when I tried to looking for your SB hehe :p)
    And yes, somehow I didn't really hate using ruler and calculating when I draw. More post about perspective from Loomis' book will come tonight!

    As I said before, these are my drawings yesterday...

    Continuing my study from Loomis....

    The still-life I did. There are more, but it seemed that the scanner didn't like my notes (the still-life I did while listening to my lecturer, mostly I did in notes) and couldn't scan it >.<

    And whew... it was hard to draw a cylindrical object! I think I have to do more still-life. I'm okay with portrait and human figure, but I don't know how still-life was so hard for me. I guess it's because I've always doodling human face since I was a child, but seldom draw a still-life...

    And this is my self-portrait. I did it with mirror (not photograph). And it's much better than the first time I did SP (that was a few months ago, I'll upload the drawing next time and prepare to laugh! Hohohoho )

    Btw... I've only realized that my previous drawings were uploaded with 300 dpi resolution. That's why they are showing up realy slow!! (at least in my computer hehe...)
    I'll edit and upload them again in 72 dpi resolution next time...

    Hey there, marco! Thx for commenting! Maybe my shading style came that way because I use mechanical pencil too much hahaha ;D

    Let's keep drawing and improve together, okay!

    My drawings this morning. I have the opportunity to scan it and use my friend's internet connection hehehe :p

    Another drawing from Loomis' book. I feel that now I'm just becoming more using it just like "copying visual reference" (well, a bad thing for me), so I'll draw much more those stick-man tomorrow! From life! Yeah!

    I got a few questions in my mind after drawing that. About center of gravity, etc etc (as you can see in the scribbles on the drawing). I have to test it!

    Thx, Lightmode108! And yes, there are some metaphor in my comic from both the drawing and the story. I hope my comic win the contest (well, at least third place or even get only additional prize is okay hehe), so I can proove to my parents that I can "do something" with my art...

    Loomis' study is still going on. Right now I'm stuck in internet cafe because I'm waiting for my Gnomon DVD's download to finish (man, I've been sitting in internet cafe for about 5 hours!!! ). Drawing more Loomis' stick-man while waiting. But unfortunately because I'm stuck in this place, I can't observe and draw those stick-man from life today (got something to do later)... Hikz hikz...

    Oh yeah, yesterday I borrow my friend's Gnomon DVD about the making of one of Gears of War's big boss. Wow, it was so mind-blowing to see a pro concept artist working! And I love hearing the artist talked in DVD because I could learn many things and as well knowing what he think when he work!

    I'm still waiting for my Gnomon DVD's download...

    Take care

    @ DSmith
    Thx for the compliment! It means a lot for me (remembering the hard work I put for that comic, it makes me happy that someone like my comic too ). Actually I wanted to make that comic's visual presentation "more clear", that everyone could understand its story just by looking at the drawings and don't need the text to help it. But yeah, I think my skill didn't enough to do it at that time, that's why if I would make another comic my target is creating a comic without any text/verbal language at all. I want to be able to tell a story just by using gesture, environment, composition, etc etc hehe

    @ Norris, DBZMerciter2005
    Yes, Loomis seems like a good start for me. As a beginner, it's hard for me to find where to start my study because art is seem so enormous! But with Loomis' book I get some "direction" for my study, altough I can't tell yet whether it's a "right direction" or not, at least right now I'm not confused anymore with what to study. And from the book, Loomis is not really a hardcore which fit me well. I once tried Kimon Nikolaides' Natural Way to Draw, but it blown me apart!! >.<


    Btw, here are my drawings from yesterday. Remember when I said before that I had to stay in internet cafe for 5 hours? So I drew some of this.
    The first 12 stick-man were made by looking for the pose at posemaniacs.
    The next 4 (the ones with "box" as a chair) was from gracefulnudes.com.
    The next 9 were from my imaginations, somehow I rather enjoy drawing these stick-man from imagination rather than looking at reference haha
    The last 3 were from real-life, I drew that in my class with looking at my lecturer's, my friend's, and my girlfriend's poses... The torso in the right were just I practice drawing stick-man's torso from different angles

    Next monday will be me and my girlfriend celebration day because we've been together for 9 months and 10 days. I'm planning to make a memento, which modelled like an "award". This is the preliminary sketch for it
    (Actually now the figure has been done, and I'm making the "stand" for it. But I don't have the chance to scan it, so I'll upload it tomorrow! And just see the final piece when it have been completed, I've been thinking about few concepts and it will be cool! Hohoho )

    Sure! Let's help each other too...

    3 AM in my country now. Too tired to think seriously, but want to lurking around CA for moments. I've finished reading Harold Speed's The Practice and Science of Drawing, and these are few questions in my mind (actually there was more, but I forgot to take a note of the questions I got in early chapters >.<). Most of it are not because I really "understand" about art, it's because of my curiousity...


    1. The first was about visual memory in drawing. It's pretty clear about its importance by reading the Visual Memory chapter, but how do we improve our visual memory?

    2. Also mentioned over and over in that book about mechanical, lifeless way of drawing, what does that really like? And what is the "right" way of drawing?

    3. "Try and express yourself in as simple, not as complicated a manner as possible" is the next point that took my attention. What does that means? What is "complicated manner" look like? And what the "simple" one look like?

    4. The last question is what is the essential different between "copying from nature" drawing and the "real/right study" drawing? Is it like the term "copying visual reference"?



    Sleepy... Z,z

    Today I had a workshop about Integrated Marketing Communication in my campus. It turned out that most of my friends didn't attend that event, and because I was itching to draw, I draw some when I had the chance. First was the opening...

    Hey there BluezAce! What's up? The comic seems very nicely done, good job! I think you're doing very well studying. Do more of that, like, copy anatomy drawings and classical works and maybe frames from films and interesting pictures and still life. I know, it's the most boring aspect but it really helps. I think you need to concentrate on your shading and anatomy.

    Keep them coming!

    I'm still alive!!! :D

    Aaaagh... sorry everyone! I've been quite busy this past few days because I'm having semester-test for two weeks (not that I'm a diligent student that study everyday, but hey... it's only for once in every 5 months so at least I want to give some effort to it )

    @Nlete
    Thx for the support!
    Well, actually I'm a lazy person too. But I always think that the best way to understand drawing is to draw, and I found many small "insight" that I would never notice if I had only read or look at the book. Maybe it's just the way I'm learning though


    @darknight
    I've been thinking for a while about the thing you suggest too! I've always felt that like I'm "moving too fast" when I learned Loomis' book. For the truth, I think it's firstly because I have to do spend my time in many things that not related to art (well... go to class, doing class' task, preparing and performing presentations, maintaining connection with friends, taking care of my girl, giving time to my family, etc etc) do each day I usually could only give about 4 hours to draw. Secondly, because I feel that in July or August something bad will happen to me and really messing up with everything in my life (a premonition hehehe ), and when that moment finally happen I feel giving time to draw will be much more difficult for me. This reasons put me in a stressful thought like "I only have very limited time to do drawing in a limited time, and the clock is ticking!!", and make me want to learn as much as possible in a very quickly time. Not a good way to learn of course...

    But yeah, this past few days I've been trying to break that mental attitude. In the future, I'll try to slow down and concentrate more to better understand the drawing I'm learning now. Thx for mentioning and suggesting this, darknight! I really appreciate it!


    @Hellbeard
    Thx for stopping by, Hellbeard! And yeah, I'll try to work on anatomy as soon as I can have the time. For now, everyday (out of the "doodle" drawing) I have 3 objectives:
    1. Learn from Loomis' book
    2. Draw from real-life
    3. Free session (I could do anything this time such as focusing more on Loomis, finishing a drawing for my friend, learning from DVD, etc)
    Although, often I get a tight schedule and I could only do 2 objectives (sometimes only 1...). But I'll try my best to do all the objectives!

    For the classic work, I've been thinking about that too. After I read MindCandyMan's post about bargue drawing, I got a bargue drawing book from CA. But right now, I think the time isn't on my side and many things limiting me from art. For the most, maybe all I can do is copying master's works (not the painting ones of course).

    For the still life, this is the one I did two days ago (I didn't have the chance to scan yesterday's and today's drawing, I think I'll scan it tomorrow...). This is a street lamp in my town (yeah, it looks old and very decorative. In my country, my town is famous as a town that filled with art, many beautiful objects and decorations and artworks here ), and once again I draw it near Fort Vredeburg...

    Your plan sounds solid. I, at least, always have to make some room for free/personal work to keep me motivated and it helps to consolidate the things you learn doing other things.

    Actually, I have to force myself to actually do studies rather than dick around so kudos on self discipline!


    Good job on that lamp post, it looks really hot.

    What's this about a premonitions? Do you really have a time consuming, life changing event or are you just psychically inclined to believe so?

    This is rockin' hun. Keep it up. I really like how you've applied Loomis' work into the real world. It looks interesting, hell you could make a whole study out of it!

    @ryan a
    Thx for the compliment!
    And yeah, it took me 13 hours each day to finish that comic in time. Pretty tiring, but it was sweet time for me
    I'm planning to do another comic, but not in the near future (maybe 2-3 months later) because I don't really have time to think about it right now...


    @DBZMerciter2005
    Thx, things are starting to go crazy in my life, but I'll try my best to keep going!!


    @Hellbeard
    Thx for your support, Hellbeard!
    That's right, personal works are much fun to do! And it's really refreshing, especially when things started to turn into a boring routine...

    Well about the premonition... Do we consider "my mother tried to strangle me when I was sleeping" as having a time consuming, life changing event or psychically inclined to believe so?
    I'll leave the answering to you



    Btw, these some drawings I did in past few days
