The Journey of a Rookie to Pro Artist
I've been looking at everyones sketchbooks for too long now
and thought now is the time to make my own.
I'm from the UK and currently studying Games Development at College.
Im applying for animation courses this year at university and hopefully I'll be able to upload to this thread on a daily basis with some feedback.
I'm following the 'Figure Drawing - Design and Invention' book so i copied some images from there. Also did a few Posemaniac gestures and copied a eye/ear/lips from my anatomy book

Hi, I have a few comments.
About the ear and mouth in you first study, I think we worked on it for a bit but I'm not quite sure, you have "line art" for the ear and lips, but real life ears and lips dosn't have lines defining them, it's the blocks of values of light and shadow that define the shapes.
About the banana and the pear - no banana's colors will be only yellow, bright yellow and greenish yellow, there are so many hues reflecting on every object, every object is colorful. Try to see the "hidden" colors.
"hidden"= your brain tricks you because you know banana is yellow, but it's not that simple

Looking good Blackops, keep up the grind :]!
Gestures are great - try to lay down one line that defines the pose and captures the energy, then if you have time, constructing the forms around that gestural mark will preserve the life of the pose.
Nice work starting with the digital painting too, I'm just getting in that myself. Try giving this thread a look, the advice is really helpful and the images inspirational - http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=107217.
With things like your final study, the hand, try to think about the 'shapes/forms' that the hand is made up of. You can be less concerned with the vascular system, and more focussed on how the palm may be like a box if you were to simplify the planes - George Bridgman studies will help this learning.
Hope that helps!

I agree with Meaisin,
Don't go into too much detail at this stage, just keep working on life drawing. draw whatever you can. a can on your desk, ipod, computer mouse, door, whatever! to help you see values a bit simpler cross your eyes a tiny bit, detail will go, but you cans till see the forms you need to draw. don't get tied down drawing detail yet!
