    jaravine's sketchbook

    Hello to everybody!

    Finally decided to kick my butt to start a sketchbook.


    I'm currently learning matte surface shading inspired by Scott Robertson DVD.
    I have some geometrical props painted matt white, but i didn't observed those directly while shading.
    Comments and critiques would be appreciated.

    Here is the first study.
    I used Prismacolor pencil on this.

    Hey there, and welcome to ConceptArt.org!
    That study looks good, but honestly it's not enough for us to help you with anything. So you'll just have to start posting as much as possible!
    Once you've posted some more stuff I'll come back here and write you another reply

    And I'll tell you what i got told when I started my Sketchbook. It should help to browse through the sketchbooks and reply to ones you like, or give critique. This way those people might help you a hand in the future

    Good luck, and draw, draw, draw!

    Thank you Luckers for your feedback. You are absolutely right. I'll have to start to commenting others works. I'll check your sketchbook too.

    Here is couple more drawings.

    Round forms

    One thing I learned about these studies was that you really have to pay attention to the gradients to make the forms round.

    Great start, you got the line quality down pretty well in those two Bargue studies. Keep posting!

    Thanks Original E

    Here's another Bargue study. I'm not able to get it dark enough with graphite. The paper is smooth marker paper (not sure it's a good choice). Maybe I should hit it with prismacolor pencil? What's interesting is that now when I compare the pictures on screen I can see lot flaws that I wasn't aware of before.

    Value scale with markers

    I think the values are a bit off on prismacolor markers.

    The scale on the left is "straight out of the tube". The other on right is tweaked with black and white pencils.

    Great studies!
    I hope to see more diversity in your posts, though!

    Keep up the good work!

    Luckers, I understand what you mean. I just like to focus on one problem or part at a time, until I feel there's nothing more I can get out of it. Though a bit diversity wouldn't harm you, I think

    greeeeat start to a sketchbook! Really useful studies and something all of us should probably do more! This sort of practice in rendering values will give you a really strong foundation for your more intricate pieces. Anatomy is looking good too.

    The hardest part of keeping a SB on CA is just sticking with it! So good luck with that and I look forward to coming back and seeing the progress

    The exercises are from Scott Robertson's DVDs.
    Matte surface shading

    The lineworks are included on the dvds.
