    Chew's sketchbook

    Wow, i can't believe I got myself starting a sketchbook. I'm very very shy. But I want to learn!
    I wanted to attend an art school as a secondary school but it didn't feel right, and people were very competitive which freaked me out. Now I study marketing and economics, with no art classes, so art remained a hobby. I don't feel very good, so I'm in the middle of drawing different poses and see how it goes. Anatomy bothers me the most now in my stuff.
    Apart from that I like drawing faces. : D


    Well... here I go.. I'm still having problems with the angles. Must figure those out!

    Haha I used to be really shy about my artwork, eventhough the passion is the same. Good choice starting a sketchbook, it will enable you to achieve wonders if you take crits, improve and update at constant (: I really like your perspective figures there in the first post. Encourage you to practice more of it. Use lots of references and keep it up. So far so good.

    As for your digital colouring, it's a good start. Practice more depth and experiment the brushes and blending. You're working towards a good direction there (: I'd love to see more. Cheers

    Very nice! keep it up. I see that your using perspective for ur anatomy, very nice. Nice portrait also. You need working on ur colors but that should be ur main concern right now. Work more with figures and shapes. Thats what I am currently doing.

    Bleo:Ah, thank you! (God isn't that Damon Albarn on your avatar? Maan I love him!)
    I was trying to figure out how I could make the angle look noticable, because I'm not very good at that. Glad you liked!
    Also, I cannot believe I was sitting here for half an hour puzzling if i should actually post.

    yogeshj25:Thank you very much!

    Less shy, Moar art! haha, jokes.. or not?

    perhaps a little bit of both

    If you're not familiar with Bridgman and Loomis you should check them out now. They'd fix your perspective issues in no time.

    And having art as a hobby is cool, when I went to highschool I attended an art program, which sounds good but it didn't give me much. Mainly because I was young, arrogant and dumb.. oh wait.. I still am. And also, because I didn't have any motivation to do art at that time. I was good at drawing and that was it.. During my second year I found CA.org and I knew what I wanted to do. Then I started drawing with a goal, and you'll be amazed what can be done with some self motivation.
    So, don't worry about art, I think you'll be doing just fine.

    please post more!

    DefiledVisions : Haha thank you! I'm checking them out.
    I've just finished my second year at high school XD ~ I kinda got back into art because we had to choose what classes we really want to do in our 3rd year, and I really missed art from the possibilities. I realised that I'm not really good at anything, and that's mainly because I never finish anything, so now I picked a few hobbies back again. And this time I won't quit!
    I have a few poses here waiting to be scanned, until then here's an older drawing... it's not that old, really, but...let's consider May loong ago:

    I have a hunch the arm and hands cry in their awkwardness.

    Well, the lower arm is basically broken and the upper arm is too short. The profile of the singer is good though When you are uncertain about the proportions try to draw in the bones (skeleton), if you cannot do so then there is something wrong. Also, it better to start with a constructive approach on the first place.

    The perpective issue is called foreshortening (rövidülés ). Things closer to us are larger, things farthe away are smaller (like trees on a road). For example in the first post the kneeling man, his head is the largest while it is the fartest away and his legs are small while they are much closer to us. This is clearly wrong and makes it akward. It should be the otherway round. The farter away should be small and the leg close to us should be larger

    The rendering of the face lack contrast. Cast shadows (vetett árnyékok) are always (usually) much darker then the rest. For example if you observe pictures you will see that shadows behind the ears/neck are usually very dark (almost black), and depending on the light there can be very dark cast shadows below the nose, mouth, in the corner of the eyes, etc. Observe them carefully!

    Good start, keep it up!

    Ááh köszi! Jó magyart is látni errefelé.
    I'll pay more attention to the shadows, and foreshortening. Igyekszem a még szabadidőmet eltölteni ezzel, mert sajnos iskolában zombi vagyok. ~

    Been to Croatia for a week, couldn't really do anything there. But I have some unfinished stuff on my pc that I kept making with the new tablet. I also have some more poses drawn on paper but i hadn't had time to scan. D:

    I tried to colour with the tablet. The background is kinda stupid and just put there because I imagined a sort of violet colour at the very back but that'd only look good if I weren't to colour it in black and white. I thought I should start with a fewer variety of colours first.
