    Kraut 'Em All's Sketchbook

    So. I thought it was finally time to get my lazy ass up and start drawing.
    My goal is becoming a (semi)professional concept artist (not necessary a good one). Or at least good enough to do some CD-cover arts and stuff. Sure it's still a loooooooooong way, but i'm doing my best to improve.

    I'm trying to draw/paint something every day and post not less than once a week.
    Crits and comments are VERY welcome!

    Cheers you CA people!

    hey krautemall, great start on your sketchbook too. very much like the dog and the two portraits.
    lets see if i can add some cc...

    the woman's breasts seem a little "high" to me, like they should droop under their weight a little, also her waist line seems awful thin compared to her hips

    also the figure sketches, i guess maybe use some bolder lines? they seem very frail and kinda ill defined, try drawing them with more "certain" lines and maybe a lil darker
    it feels like maybe youre sketchin them too small so its a lil "constrained"
    maybe thats me, anyway keep it up!

    Thanks for the comments!

    @ask9: You're right with the girl's breast. The waist usually should be wider, but the model in the photo in fact had such a thin waist-line.
    Also, you're correct with the figure sketches. I really should use some stronger lines. Normally i do them on real paper (woah!), but i don't have a scanner right now, so i did some in PS. But that doesn't change the need for bolder line Thanks for that!

    So here's my stuff for today:
    (Bolder) figure sketches from Loomis' Figure Drawing. Did them directly after waking.
    Two portraits (done for SF0.org) and a WIP of my room.
    Oh, and a flyer for fun.
    Take a look at my SKETCHBOOK to help me improve and take your jobs !!!

    cc

    perspective is a little off on that battery! we are looking down at it from above, however the top face seems smaller than what the bottom face seems to look like, given the verticals; should be the other way around maybe?

    Nice sketchbook you got going here! I really like the animal studies and that last environment has great mood. You seem to have the determination to reach places!
    SKETCHBOOK below. C&C appreciated! UPDATED 21/04 2011

    Nice SB, but sometimes it feels like you're just copying, not thinking... Try to think about more basic shapes, volumes etch... Then I believe your work from imagination will get better

    Big X! Become a great concept artist! haha

    Ah I think this one is great. The full opacity mark is a good and beautiful approach. I think you can apply this method to your environments, which seem kind of mushy (though I like the shapes!). Maybe some really quick and simple environment studies? That will help you focus on the most important things like color/value/composition.
