    gothicspork's sketchbook

    Hi! I'm a 19 year old multimedia art student majoring in animation, illustration and web design. I've known about CA.org for years and only recently gained enough confidence to join.

    I like to experiment with different styles and genres. That gives me a big problem with inconsistency. So in my latest sketchbooks, I'm trying not to be too carefree with what I fill the pages with.

    First, here are some stuff from my previous sketchbook

    Welcome to CA!

    I like your sketches and it's nice to see you drawing skeletons. Knowing the skeleton is really important when drawing the figure, especially from memory. Your skeletons look a bit out of proportion though. You'll get better at that over time.

    Your majoring in quite a lot of things. From my own experience with learning web design, that can honestly be a major on it's own. There is a lot to know about web design, especially if you want to be a web developer. It's also hard if you have no prior knowledge in programming and knowing web design is similar to learning how to draw. There are basic principals you have to grasp in programming and it's almost like learning a new language (well not to the fullest extent but it is still a language none the less.) It's similar to drawing because having a good foundation is important. Otherwise you can't learn new things.

    Animation and illustration are similar so doing both is important. I'm just curious but how are you going to major in all of these? Are you focusing on one major more than the others?

    I'm really curious to see more work from you. Do you have any finished illustration stuff?

    Nice work. It'll be enjoyable seeing your work evolve as you proceed through your classes.

    @Istmin52, Thanks for the welcome! I'll definitely work on being able to drawing skeletons better.

    The course I'm in, multimedia arts (I'm at my senior year, btw. No middle school in this country) doesn't have as much foundational classes for drawing as my college's animation class. We also have to study video, graphic design, interactive design etc so that's a lot to cram. I took this course to find out which kind of media I'm really inclined to. While I love drawing and cartoons, I sincerely enjoy web design so I couldn't shift to animation at once. I'm thinking of taking up a course in animation or fine arts after this... or extensive self studying.

    Anyway, some finished works are shown on my website: http://www.sporkycomplex.com

    Some watercolor paintings from a few years ago. I already fixed the shape of the sashimi plate but I lost the painting before I could take a new photo.

    2 more watercolors based on my photos

    I tried to be loose with painting and do minimal pencil sketching on them compared to my previous post

    Those (skeletal) studies and paintings are excellent. Now let's see how good you are at drawing feet and perspective.

    @FightingSeraph, thank you
    I just realized that I don't study drawing feet a lot. Haha. As for perspective, I have a few of those too. Thanks for the challenge!

    @Somelar, thanks very much!
