    Seamus's Sketchbook! Beginning Artist

    Hey all! This is my first sketchbook, i was feeling i was posting a little often in the WIP forum, so i decided to make a sketchbook that i can post in as often as i want.

    About me: Im 13, just started doing drawing/painting seriously, and right now im currently only doing digital, pencil is a pain to me, theres no undo button, it smudges over time, and you have to have sharper/duller pencils for different lines.

    I have an wacom intuos4 large tablet

    Here is some of the things i have been working on lately.
    Crits, drawovers, and anatomical error corrections are appreciated!

    I am not very good at environments, the only one i have done so far is the castle sketch, just learned 2point perspective from a youtube vid.

    Should i work on more basic perspective/environments? Or should i focus on bettering my characters/anatomy? Havent done a whole lot of lighting or color yet.

    Thanks in advance all!

    Hey! Welcome to CA! nice to see some studies going up there. You definitly have some skills here, i would consider studying andrew loomis for faces, body structure, and rendering..

    DRAW!! i know traditional media is a pain sometimes, but if you are only good at digital you won't have the background you need. You should be well-versed in traditional media before you even touch that tablet.

    You definitely got some artisitic ability and you need to develop it. REAL ARTISTS don't shy away from a sketch pad.

    Hey m8. You are as the above speaker said off to a good start and I have to say with your young age you will if you really want to be very very good before you even hit 18. I just wish I would have started at your age hehe. Some good studies, post some more please Would agree with the above againand say Loomis, he is really good and free on the web.

    About charcoal and boards and such, I'd say if you like your Wacom go for that one but draw traditionally sometime as well even if you almost only use your board.

    I just bought myself one and isnt it a blast having no smudging our, ctrl-z and all that

    Keep it up m8 / Brain

    Cheers/ your friend PMB

    Thanks

    Thanks for the post, i actually have heard of Loomis, popped his name into google and got an article of someone walking through his book drawing hands and head, he said that it was too vague to be useful on its own. Still, i will take a trip to my local library today, and get some books on drawing/painting.

    I am taking some classes at a local art college soon, in painting/drawing, so im going to have to get good at using traditional media before i go, dont want to make a fool of myself... Would be emberassing to suck at pencil while being good at digital, and have people think you are bad all around. Well, i will do the studies i come up with after reading loomis and others on paper, that will give me some more experience.

    I have been doing a bit of pencil drawing, and at least a lot of my skills learned in digital are carried over when doing pencil.

    Thanks, Seamus.

    small update

    Hi again, small update... I tried doing some loomis heads, didnt work out that well, i need to practice it more if i want that method to look better than just scribbling a head from memory. I just started playing everquest so my time has been consumed mostly with that. Here is a study of a gymnast, the person i drew is not really the person in the pic, but the pose is similar. Also refined the concept character

    Update, Some faces and noses

    Ello all, here is two pages of studies. The faces were done from takin pics of my face at wierd angles, i learned alot about how lines can describe the form, also edges... anyways, the noses are pretty much from memory, thats why they look like crap. The face where he is looking upwards looks really fakey, like he is wearing a mask... I dont really know why. Please give crits, etc.

    I will do a scanned pencil page soon!
