    Tenacious sketching, represent

    Oh look, yet another sketchbook thread thing.

    I'll update whenever convenient. For now, here is some art.

    Right, a few sketches. Nothing too fancy, but they'll serve as sort of a backdrop to any future ones. Not much to say about them, anyway, other then that I'm not particularly happy with them but at the same time has refrained from burning them. That's a start.

    A little tidbit - I haven't exactly been drawing from life, or anything else other then my imagination, so my art isn't exactly, well, anatomically correct. I'm going to fix that via sketching from, well, life.

    Some more sketches, all done in the past day or so. I've been sketching from life, trying to increase my knowledge of anatomy and it does appear to be working.

    I don't know, sketching from observation it's ridiculously easy to get good results and I'm already preferring to draw from my mind - the results are much more interesting, if anything. I'll be switching before too much time, no doubt, but at least these sketches are new ones.

    More sketches? MORE SKETCHES. I've tried going ahead and using RL models for the work, really seems to help. At least, pose wise, and probably a good deal proportional-wise too.

    Also, painting practice?

    Thanks man - I'm really intending to just continue that way, get my perception in reality firmly grounded before I move on to anything else.

    Anyway, another three sketches, first two from imagination, using the posing skills that I've learned from Posemaniacs. Third... Posemaniac wireframes from their challenge. Pretty crappy, using lined paper, but whatever.

    Hi Lintire, thought I'd return the favour and visit your book.
    Liking the perspective on the pumpkin head image, keep up the colour work please.

    But yeah, daily observational sketches are the way forward. It'll help you gain confidence in drawing and this'll make drawing from your imagination a lot easier. But then you've got a good imagination and it would be a shame to loose it just drawing reality all day.
    Liking the woman with the chainsaw, for a moment I wondered where it was coming from.

    Well, I decided to go ahead and wait until I had some half-decent material to post around here. I've actually drawn some things, and that's really worked out. But still, now that a lot of the distractions have been gone, should be able to resume with the routine.

    Basically a few pieces and whatnot. Planning to go ahead with Posemaniacs. Terrified of drawing without lines.

    Oh, pumpkin-head in the first post! I'm really digging the style you've got going. I'm inspired by and luv the awesome poses you experiment with too.

    Hehe, thanks for the replies guys.
    Nice to know that my tendency to draw crazy poses and perspectives makes up for my sheer lack of talent :3

    Mostly, I'm doing some crazy poses or other, and I *finally* have some new things to post here - namely, a random picture, some character concepts and my first try at painting!

    Sweet. Yeah. Also resized a few pics in this thread to make it easier to stomach, and will continue that for a bit onwards.

    Here's a few more drawings since then. I'm going to stop doing "full" drawings for a bit and concentrate on sketching - improving my rusty POV and perspective drawings, the human anatomy, that sort of stuff.

    But a few have racked up since the last update, which is sort of encouraging in itself. I do a lot of Imagination work, but not a lot from sight. Intend to change that, for at least practicing. One thing at a time, though.

    Hopefully have not degraded too much.

    A few more since the last update. Been sketching and learning a bit, hasn't really affected anything though. Just need to practice a bit more.

    Please excuse the retarded look on the girl's face. My bad. Also a T-Shirt design I've wanted since I drew it. It all kinds of sucks, but hell, I don't particularly care.
