    Ixius's Sketchbook - Draw to learn! (NSFW)

    Hello all,

    I'm a 22 year old student who has taken a few art classes, but I want to make it a professional lifestyle. I am attending RIT for Illustration.

    I'm a long time lurker who finally garnered up the will to draw each day. I'll post my progress as I continue.

    Thank you all for your time and inspiration!

    Ivan: Thanks man! Yeah, I lurked for a while but now I plan to be more involved here. This place is so amazing!

    EDIT: here's a small update. I had to adjust the brightness/contrast because the scan was just too light. Thanks for looking!

    UPDATE:

    More figure studies...I think I'm getting better (and learning that patience is key)!
    And, a short head study. My designs right now are based off of the stuff on characterdesigns...I'm not too keen on coming up with machinery and accessories from my head. I just need to draw more and use more perspective. Ah well, Practice makes perfect!

    I love your values--especially on the ones in the 3rd and 4th posts.
    Yes, I think patience is key as well

    MyioDeSopsia: thanks! I try to get a pretty good value range...I just can't seem to lay down deep blacks though. That'll come with practice I suppose.

    Here's another pic...sorry for the quality. My scanner's not big enough to handle a large sketchbook

    Update! New pics are up. The last one is a picture of Solid Snake, I'm trying to make it into a finished piece in photoshop. Again, sorry for the picture quality. I can't really afford a large format scanner right now

    after a week long vacation, here's an update. Didn't get much time in for drawing, but when I got back I tried my hand at digital painting...must say, it's pretty hard, but relaxing in a way.

    First pic is still a WIP from reference, and there's a lot of messiness...I got a new brush pack and couldn't resist trying all of them out

    The other pic is of a cup lid I had on my desk.

    Hey all, another update! These are some excerpts from my sketchbook...I bought a smaller one, and I have to say, I'm more comfortable working smaller rather than in a massive 14 by 17!

    There are some N.C. Wyeth studies in there...I absolutely love his work, and being a novice in environmental design, I found his artwork approachable to study in terms of tone and atmosphere. I learned a lot from doing it!

    Thanks for looking!

    Hey all, I've taken a loooong break from this site, but want to get back into the swing of things by posting more. Art school is awesome, but also kicking my butt in a lot of ways.

    Taking after Andrew Jones, I'm doing a portrait a day, but not necessarily a self-portrait. Here's my progress so far, crits and comment are very welcome, because I need to know what I'm weak at! Thanks a lot for looking!

    By the way, painting in color is a real pain!

    Awesome sketchbook man. Those NC Wyeth studies are off the chain!
