    semi-daily sketchbook

    [NOTE: Decided to edit this post to make a more colorful thumbnail for the thread. The original images attached to this post can be found on my website.]



    Original post text:

    I used to have a profile on here but I let it fall into disuse. So, I decided to get a fresh start with a new profile and a new sketchbook to go with my new blog (www.roamingground.com) and new project: the goal of drawing and posting one 15-30 minute sketch everyday.

    I've been at it for 5 days now on my blog, so I will post the first five sketches here:

    Hiya Peregrin, thanks for your comment in my sb.

    Your sketches are wicked! I like your sexy fairy, your style is really loose but nice and stylized with little details here and there. I like your random line then sketch technique!

    Lovely life drawings too I think you're right about manipulating the pose, it's like any reference i guess, just use it to know where things go but then you can still use artistic license to make it look more fluid..better composition etc...artistic license..the best two words ever!

    I really dig that pyramid/cone painting that you did, but I don't know a faster way to produce something with decent quality.

    You can paint and draw with a lot of different styles, that's very interesting to see. I like your "cartoon style" drawings and paintings I like the atmosphere of the one with the night and the ninja. Reminds me of Raphaelo ^_^

    This latest one has the potential to be pretty good I think. I am interested to see how you handle the light that is going to be spilling in from the window.

    Daily doodle character #1 looks really good. Proportions make them look quite nimble. Thanks for the feedback on my thread with the helpful advice. I'll probably be using After Effects with a similar method you mentioned about composite animation.

    Anyway, you've got some great work here, but I think doing more life-drawing / anatomy studies will really take your work a long way: try a proportionally accurate sketch of anatomic ligaments, then redraw them in a stylised manner. I get the feeling you enjoy drawing from the imagination as opposed to observation more (?), like i do... and have found this to be a really good way to keep enthusiastic about drawing from medical books and such.

    I really like your cartoony style but when you color your work, it would be nice to see something a little more finished from you. So far your colored work seems more light you are just filling in the lines with some very subtle gradients. It's not giving your sketches much depth. I think your figure drawings are helping you though. Def keep doing those because it's paying off.

    I think the issue is when you try to add shadow is that you are using black and for your lights you are using white. I understand you want looseness in your work but maybe you can try using some dark blues or something to mix into the shadows and some other hints of color in your light areas. I hope I'm making some sense to you. It's hard for me to explain. I think studying value first will def help you in understanding how to shade form. I would try doing more value studies. I hope you understand my advice.

    I think the problem I might be having is that when you do color in your work lightly, you can still sometimes see the whiteness from the page coming through the color. Maybe for your next experiment you can start by putting in a flat gray are brown background and paint over that. By doing this, it will eliminate all the white on the page so that when you want to paint certain highlights, your whites will be much stronger because it won't be competing with the white on the page. Hope that's helpful.

    I really love your daily doodles, your comic style's great! But I don't know if the way you color your daily doodles gives much benefit to the picture. However it seems that when you spend a bit longer on them it looks a lot better.
    and you seem to have find something in the latest one, there's a really good light there and the color gives lot more information about the picture!
    lookinf forward for more!

    I liked your figure studies. You draw from life, but it still a very your own drawings. And the short poses are just great. Strong recognition of human form and rhythm in your life drawings - good work!

    I feel that anyone can benefit from both long and short works. Doing quick gesture drawings and speed paintings can help with poses and composition. However, long studies of master paintings and bargue drawings can really help train the eye to pick up on mistakes. Try doing a still life study and work on it for a couple hour each day while doing some drawings form your head. It might take awhile to finish, but you'll learn a lot in the process.

    btw I like the life drawing. Keep going! Draw!!! Draw!!! Draw!!!
