    Sketcbook Hustle!

    Hi all,

    I have just started to focus more on my drawing in general and to that goal, I dedicating most of my waking hours. I know I can not progress on my own so please provide your input and crit my work. I decided to focus on anatomy to start with.

    Here we go!

    I chose to start studying anatomy as it seems the obvious starting point, I am currently using a number of books on the subject. These are terrible but hopefully I'll get better

    Great start, but have you thought about drawing from observation to start off with so you can get some experience before you go straight to anatomy books? Life drawing, self portraits, landscapes, still lifes, or anything you can think of really.

    Make sure you understand the structure beneath the drawing as you copy them!

    I look forward to more : )

    Make sure when you draw you work from general to specific: Block in the large main forms to make sure general proportions, angles and shapes are correct, then start going for more and more detail as the drawing progresses.
    As Nutella said, work from life. And copy the masters. Copy work will really help your technical skills. Learn perspective. Make sure not to neglect the fundamentals.

    Gosh, its been a few years since I posted anything here. Glad to see the community still going strong. I have been drawing on and off, life gets in the way sometimes but I am back to my abandoned sketchbook. I have contemplated starting a new one but seeing as though this is still in its first page why not continue here.

    As stated above all critiques are sought and are very much welcome, I shall do my utmost to keep this sketchbook updated.

    Here are a couple of recent-ish figures, continuing on the same theme I started this sketchbook with. My goal is to be a concept artist for the film and entertainment industry.

    The drawings below are from life, and there is a portrait study after John Singer Sargent.

    Minella thanks for stopping by, I really need to get some still life going, I've done some in the past but I've been avoiding it so much lately. Alas, some still lifes should be coming up very soon

    Some more recent life drawings, again ranging between 2 and 20 minutes. I have been using charcoal for a while now and was very hesitant to bring my laptop and tablet to life drawing. I have decided to paint digitally in a manner similar to the wipe out technique in oil paints. It would basically help me focus on the values at hand and avoid the use of colour. I had a bit more time with a couple of them so decided to add hints of colour to them.

    If you have any critiques please do keep them coming

    Don't have a critique for you, but the improvement between 2010 and now is amazing! Makes me want to work hard, too, aha.

    Keep up the good work, and I'm loving your life drawings!

    Bitschi thanks a lot buddy, need to keep working, we'll get there

    These are pretty much more of the same. Below are life drawings ranging between 10 and 20 minutes, its always a rush to add colour but I will keep at it and see how it goes.

    It's great that you updated your SB againt after a 3yr hiatus.
    The improvement is really cool to see, sad that you didn't stick with it for the full 3 yrs.
    The figures look damn good. I'd suggest mixing your appoaches without using line for instance, and working with tone to build up your figure
