    Must stop being lazy

    Haven't made a sketchbook thread at all, even though I joined Feb 08. Time to take this shit seriously. I want to improve, by a lot, and this way I could look at my progress. Hopefully a sketchbook motivates me to draw more. Goal: Get good at 2D and 3D.

    First things first, Dump.

    nice 3d stuff man, are you going for like video game design? thats what im in college for, well at least starting this fall, cant wait! your 2d work could use some work, i would work on your values before doing color stuff. its a good base to work from, because color always adds alot more difficulties to any image. but keep up the good work!!!

    Damn... I know what I did wrong, I jumped straight into color. I've been looking at people's processes, and some of them jump into color and make it look so easy. I took a step back and I'm trying to do a value.

    Great start my man! You have any traditional drawings or paintings you can upload? My only advice for now is to be consistent in updating your sketchbook. I just started myself and I'm all ready drawing a lot more because I know that people are actually looking at what I'm doing, even if they don't comment at all. Plus, when you update regularly, it seems people start to take you a little more seriously. Just keep at it! I'll be coming back

    I do have some traditional stuff, mainly life drawings gathering dust somewhere, but I can't really take a quality picture of it. I kind of want to try some oil painting, because one class is my whole experience with it.

    3D feels a little like cheating, since I didn't have to worry about light or perspective. At least in the black and white ones, light is a problem in my textured one.

    Nice SB so far, and your 3Ds are good! (I don't really have any experience in 3D but your works look good for me hehehe )

    Good to know that you've realize about value study. Your works also improved much if we compare it with those two years before, but somehow I want to comment about your line quality. I think it would improve your drawing if you try to use one solid line instead of many little sketchy line, because it shows that you confey a confidence in your drawing

    I'm starting to worry about my progress. At age 19, is this too slow where I could be? I don't practice enough. If there's anything I hate myself for the most, it's for not finishing my stuff. Anyway, I have never done a full piece (as in character in an environment) so I will try to do so.

    No, I guess I just like gas mask wearing soldiers and demonic looking stuff.

    Anyway, I think I rely too much on reference and details. I kind of gave up on the church sketch, no idea where I was going with it. So I tried to do a play around with bigger brushes and absolutely no reference (except sphere, I realized It's hard for me to properly shade a sphere, but cubes aren't a problem). Big brushes, no ref, kind of had more fun than doing any other sketches i've done before, probably because I didn't care about the outcome.

    Edit: I want to try to get my lines and strokes to be clean and smooth.

    So I noticed something about my art in general. Whenever I try to come up with a character or subject that interests me (necromancer in first post), I google lots of reference. The pose, clothes, bullets, gun, as close to what I want as possible. It frustrates the hell out of me trying to combine those into what I want, because I don't really know what it's supposed to look like and some of my guess work makes it look worse. But when I draw straight from reference, I'm not frustrated even if I do screw up, because I know what everything is supposed to look like, no guess work. I'm guessing the only way around this is through a shit ton of practice.

    Sketch from ref.



    EDIT: I like the way pencil and charcoal looks, and I was going to try and mimic the effect with crosshatching. I have no scanner, so can't post pencils. Then I realized photoshop is just a different medium, so back to my blocks of color technique, which is the second image.
