    contrast

    Wow now it looks really good, don't over do it thou !!!
    I am concerned that you copy bridgeman too much,
    that's what my teacher would say if you would hand
    in your stuff.

    Proof me wrong and draw a person from life (subway,
    street, nude model etc.) now put your skeleton in
    and see how it looks like. Keep the skeleton rough,
    simplify it with boxes, I'am doing that too.

    You're doing good keep it up

    great sketchbook, those anatomy sketches look cool. I think all that hard work your doing now is going to pay off in no time.

    I think i learnt quite a bit doing those arms, though I havnt yet gotten around to doing much arm drawing to test out the exercises, I did do some, and i could feel the difference. I can see the difference in my head anyway, i know where the main arm muscles/bones are and work. wooo

    although im a little disappointed with not doing enough everyday and having nto yet really picked up the great rhythm i had going in september. school finishes next week and I plan to make great use of the holidays

    i also realised that this SB can sort of be like a blog. has the advantatge of not existing in some weird vaccuum and getting no comments, which many blogs suffer from.

    im going to start to get into the habit of doing 1h of animation exercise everyday for this SB too. itll help me get over some hatespace blockage where I dont want to think about animation. I used to get that with drawing quite often, but since I started this SB and drawing everyday thats almost totally gone. its decreased so much. aweosme. so im gonna get me some of that for animation practice
    \\\
    so today i start the TORSO in my bridgeman book.
    only one little page for now, but daily updates gotta continue regardless so here it is....

    Cheers,

    Well, this time CA is somekinda dead It feels like. I don't see too much motivation all over, but we all will get through it. Just study regularly everyone!

    Your arm studies are pretty well drawn. Like them and I think you'll learn a lot in the next weeks/months. Good that you do lots of studies from Bridgman, he knows really well how to teach all that. I need to get my book out by myself again.

    Keep it up!

    whoa! ive missed out aloot!
    all these bridgman studies look super useful... if i went through all of that i bet i'd be able to construct a hand in my sleep XD good job on that! you must have a hell of a lot of patience and motivation! guess il give the guide to drawing from life a look then too

    as for CA as a blog- it shares quite a few features indeed. for me, it gives a lot of motivation and a nice view of my progress so im very happy to have my SB here (and a normal blog on the vacuum of the internets)

    keep up the good work!

    equilerex phew yeah this is the most patient/motivated ive ever been about drawing. I basically set out to follow the book from start to finish systematically and make sure I'm actually thinking/learning something. I try to do at least 2 pages a day, which isn't really all that much..
    the book im using is "the human machine", im not sure if "guide to drawing from life" is the one you have or if theres just a misunderstanding. I don't have any models here to draw from so that book wouldn't be too useful to me right now
    keep up you too
    -------

    so heres some figures from imagination, and faces, some imagination some observed from photos. the blocky figures are using the doctors "book of bones" methods, balancing the blocks and so on

    aaaand i havnt slept all night and its now noon the next day so i cant really type much night night

    Whooaaa! Studies studies studies! Nice work ethic, man. So many studies my brain hurts. Damn. Try and get some imagination pieces up there. It would be great to see how your studies have helped you in other areas as well.

    flanagan: yesss, i really do need to make more music and less scales
    the imagination pieces i have started are big drawings that ive been working on for weeks and weeks and i always tell myself not to start any new ones until i finish these... which is why i end up only practicing my scales
    but again thx for the reminder ill try and see past this

    The robot guy looks promising, but the red design is amazing, man. I see a forest creature's face lol. Dude, just keep going how your going and you'll indeed go far. Again, awesome stuff, man. Perhaps put up one of those imagination pieces and show your progression.

    Good to see you keeping up with the studies and still mixing it up with imaginative work.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    My favorites are the running dog and the guitar player. I can see motion in the dog and the guitar player is whimsical and expressive. Your anatomy studies are coming along nicely. I like how you draw in the muscles in some of your anatomy studies. I haven't quite learned all my muscle groups yet and it's something I should also be doing.

    I noticed that you're getting a better grasp of shapes and volume which is helping your anatomy studies. One thing I noticed is that sometimes your lines can be slightly stiff but I think as you become more comfortable with drawing the human figure, your lines will improve as well.

    Keep it up!

    The amount of Bridgman studies here is very motivating. I used to study his works, but I later learned that his drawings were too complicated for me to fully grasp and apply in my own works. I had to conquer the human body's basic structure first. It looks like you're getting the hang of it and with the amount of studies you do, its sure to seep in. Keep it up.

    NeonDuck: thank you
    jojokenni: thanks a lot. yes, i struggle with muscles too. ive drawn so many arms and been looking at the way the arm muscles fit together but im still not quite sure how they fit. i think i really need to compliment the studies with much more photo/life study so it really sinks in. good luck to you
    vatteh: yeh, im sort of using bridgman as an initial guide to get a grasp of the bodies basic shape and the more prominent muscles.. i get annoyed sometimes that despite the fuzzy meshy drawings of his, he often doesnt name lots of the muscles, only the ones that are actually important i guess, but it leaves me wondering. not very smart of me really. i think the trick is to grasp the basic shape hes trying to describe, and the way the shapes lock together and work together (as he is always likening to body to a machine). looking at actual bodies would be the only way to really know the shape of each part properly though i guess. thankyou you too

    arm animation, very smart !

    amazing stuff here, thanks for your useful feedback on my SB,
    you have a very nice line stroke, I really love it. Would like
    to see some more stuff of your own, I really enjoy seeing that.
    You might combine it with some bridgman. You are very inspiring
    me with your passion/ persistence of anatomy studies, and than
    the animation with the arms is sooo smart of you doing that.

    GOOD JOB !!!!!!!!!

    iven yes i really should. that notion is slowly starting to seep into my mind

    ive been using this SB as mainly a place to post my "dry" studies, but slowly the idea that I should really use this place for much more is hopefully making its way into my brain. more music

    I was on the TAD website yesterday and they had this to say about their sketchbook class:

    As the birth place of artistic ideas, the sketchbook is where the creative person develops their own unique point of view. In this highly informative class, students begin to fine tune their ability to communicate through their art. The sketchbook class illustrates the importance of personal idea exploration, and provides a safe place to make mistakes and explore content, and, naturally, to practice their skills. This class is geared toward students who wish to have a wide variety of abilities to design, compose, and create from life, reference, and imagination. This is one of the single most important classes TAD offers and is mandatory for all students enrolled full-time.

    this makes me rethink about whether im making the most of my sb here on ca.org
    the yet-unrealised idea of using this as a "blog" sort of goes down this route too

    anyway

    id really appreciate some crits on these gesture/figures im going to post, which I'd stupidly been completely ignoring since starting bridgman, under the idea of "well I should learn the parts first before practicing the whole figure"

    theyre pretty crap and I almost felt like not posting them, but then I caught that thought and saw wtf am i thinking? lololololoolololo

    final pic is from a stockphoto by http://mjramun-stock.deviantart.com

    thanks for any crits

    what doesn't get critted, dies horribly!

    I opened up this sketchbook in late july, 6 months ago, here's a little check-up on what I managed to do and not do during that time. If I do a checkup every year I'll see my overall progress from a wider view.

    • images in sketchbook: approx 280
    • the sketchbook has been open for roughly 180 days, which comes down to a measly 1.5 pictures a day


    • stuff practiced that I said I would:
      • gesture
      • faces
      • anatomic "construction"
      • hands
      • volume shapes

    • stuff not practiced that I said I would:
      • portraiture (not just face construction)
      • painting / cg painting
      • animation exercises


    The picture above was done with Alchemy, which i think I've just fallen in love with! Alchemy is awesome, awesome, awesome. And it's my last picture for 2010, woop!

    Thanks everyone for all the comments/crits/suggestions over the past months I wish you all a great 2011
