    My Sketchbook

    *** Update: Oct.29,2011***

    Name: Yog Joshi
    Age:21 (09/25/90)
    Occupation: Student & Illustrator/Concept Artist

    This sketchbook was made to get some generous feed back from the art community. Hopefully you and I will get to see my art progress as the days go by. I was originally going to school for computer engineering but after a year and half I decided that it was not my thing. So my game plans changed and now I am either going to attend SVA in NY or MICA in Baltimore.

    Please rate this thread (above)! Thanks for your visit and come back for more updates!

    Below is a more recent work, intended to use for my CA album cover

    Here I am practicing emphasizing on my dark and light lines. As you can see, the darkest lines can be found in the eye region. There is more emphasis in the front of the face than the back, which brings out the face and gives it depth.

    I cooked this up late last night. I was pretty tired and not thinking about the figure much, and copying down more of what i saw.
    I made several attempts (i believe 3 or 4) to fit the whole female figure on the page but my proportions were off. Coming to some frustration, I decided to only draw the mid body. I need more practice with my composition and proportions. I dont not have advanced knowledge on lighting, i only know the basics. I originally started with a darker value for the shades but i felt like it was too radical of a contrast, causing the eye to be distracted from the gestalt. I just started teaching my self some anatomy today. I am currently watching Artistic Anatomy Lecture Series (1976) Robert Beverly Hale Lectures. There are 10 lectures about an hour each. The print is in black and white. Kinda of tough to see and hear some of the stuff, but overall, i thought the first lecture was pretty interesting and helpful. Right now I am jumping around from place to place on drawing techniques. From perspective to composition to anatomy to texture.

    I started off pretty horribly with ink pen. I found my self improving when i used a crayola marker. Maybe the thicker lines made me concentrate more on how i was positioning the lines. I noticed that i was paying more attention to the angles and the shapes within the form as i used the marker. My lines seem to be kinda jagged. I think its because I am not determined due to the lack of my anatomy knowledge. When working with the pen I also noticed that I was using more lines and concentrating too much on one area and not paying attention to the whole. Some of the figures also seem too short.

    Here is a roughly 45 min sketch on photoshop. I do not feel satisfied with the end results because it is too light and there is not much character on the face. But then once again it is only intended to be a simple sketch. I think if i worked faster and more loose, I would find better results. I once again found myself concentrating on certain areas of the body for too long. After making a rough sketch, I found that the head was not positioned correctly and I had to make several attempts to redraw it to make it look a little better. The coloring looks a little muddy. I could have went more in detail with lights, shades, and color, but that is not my concern at this point. My main concern is getting gesture down, and making the viewer see action, lively hood in the figure.

    I use charcoal for the following sketches.
    My Sketchbook
    My first sketch of the day. Pretty horrible.
    My Sketchbook
    Start to get more form in the figure
    My Sketchbook
    One on the right is completely off! Not thinking too much about proportions
    My Sketchbook
    Getting more form, still lacking action
    My Sketchbook
    My Sketchbook
    Getting more gesture in. Line are more curved. Makes the figure more appealing
    My Sketchbook
    Here I start using indian ink to quickly jot down the gesture of the figure and then I go over it with charcoal
    My Sketchbook
    Proportions getting a little better
    My Sketchbook
    I am really liking the two on the right. When I plotted the gesture, I use the shadows as a guide to wich ways and angles the parts of the body were positioned in.
    My Sketchbook



    I only have basic knowledge on gesture. I still have a lot more to learn and anatomy along with that. For the above drawings, i put down the gestures first and then I worked the form. I tried to look at the figure and break it up into simple shapes. I would say I saw about 50% of figure in three dimension shapes and the other half I unconsciously drew in lines.

    my first gouache paint. The paint is very lenient. You can easily add or remove details with the help of a damp brush. A different feel from acrylic. Feels more like water color but with more flexibility. I like how the face stands out but i feel like my weakness is the proportions of the face. The painting is also too muddy. I need better control with choosing the right tone of color.

    Some more figure drawings. I started watching Vilpu's lessons on gesture drawing. I find it very helpful!

    for the middle figure i used willow charcoal to get down the gesture.

    Here you can see that I am starting to understand the spherical forms a little better. The one on the right is a back shot. I found it pretty difficult because i was not used to it, for that reason the proportions are off. Just need a hell lot more practice

    Drawings after studying Vilppu's lesson on spherical forms. Im starting to see more of the structures volume in 3 dimensions.
    Today I concentrated more on fitting a form within a form, working over the surface (overlapping), corners, and the center of each shape. I am also starting to get a better sense of direction and proportionality.

    A random post. So i quit working on my art for the year 2009. I was caught up with college and I didnt give art much concern. This was my first art work within the span of a year. Medium:acrylics. I did use a grid for this and for that reason I am not satisfied with it. I do like the tones i used. I feel like the skin tone and facial features were independent of the grid system; however proportions were not. Drapery sucks. Now that i have a better understand of proportions and positive and negative space, i feel like i could paint this with out a grid.
