    Never Enough Tea - tulokyn's sketchbook - Daily!

    I have been a lurking member for far too long, and I've decided to put up a new sketchbook. I'm sick of looking wistfully at others improvement without having a shiny thread to polish up myself. Some of what is in here is work for my webcomic, and has a decidely manga-esque look, but I'm working a lot on anatomy and other various bits and pieces right now, so hopefully it's all fine.

    Enough of my meandering nervous chatter, on to the art!

    This update includes studies of vulture heads, a sketchy ad idea, lots of bridgeman and posemaniacs, and some doodles. See you later!

    Looks good! You've a nice sketching technique on those bird drawings, and your anatomy studies looks fine too. Would be nice to see some paintings in the future!

    Greip: Thanks for the first comment! I'm currently trying to arrange my apartment such that I can start doing some painting again. I painted for a semester at university and fell in love with it, but a tiny apartment and two cats have made continuing with oils to be difficult. I think I'm just going to say screw it and do some work with acrylics. I'm also expecting some new anatomy books to show up on my doorstep tomorrow, which I am way too excited about.


    So here are today's offerings. Some vulture studies from last night, a page of pixellovely gestures, and a bunch of random stuff from life. I really need to get a still life set up working here. Need to steal the lamp from the kitchen or something.

    Please give crits/suggestions!

    Great start. The gestures are looking good and your bird and torso studies are pretty solid. keep up the good work.

    Tacomeat: Thank you. The encouragement is always appreciated.

    Today, some lazy half-assed gestures with some broken down barn/shack type things, a page of Bridgman torsos that made me question to usefulness of these studies, a portrait from reference that told me I need to do a lot more work on realistic heads with some drawings of my cats from life, and a little drawing from photo of some guy on www.style-arena.jp

    I've been mulling over Bridgman for a while too and... it's interesting. I think the purpose, more than anything else, is to apply Bridgman to actual life studies. He's trying to help you see the underlying mechanics of the figure before you. I actually see wireframes sometimes in real life now. I don't think they apply to flat pictures very well until you see them in real life.

    Or, unless you're a savant.

    Keep doing the photo ref and the bridgman, and try to draw from life when you can (I can't seem to find a suitable place to hang out to draw people, especially in the winter now, and the local class is 400 bucks for the semester - I am le poor). They'll converge, eventually.

    EDIT: also, I like your cats.

    jNeumann, FootstepsBeckon, The_Flying_Dutchman: Thanks for dropping by and leaving encouragement! I appreciate it.

    karmiclychee: Yes, I think you're right about Bridgman. Thanks to your comment, I did half of my eye studies from life today, got a whole mirror and lamp setup happening at my desk. As for hanging out and drawing people, coffeeshops, the mall, and the library are good places here. There are always old people sitting around in the food court at the mall, and most people in publi have a ouple default positions they shift into, so you can just work on two or three drawings of the same person, or if you're worried about getting caught, just start drawing the person next to them!

    Here is my meager offering for today. Had a rough day of waiting for a package that never came. So frustrating.

    Beautiful eyes - your hatching shading is really awesome. I have a tendency to stick to one kind of pencil for my studies, I don't seem to have the same kind of bold lines that you do. I've been using the HB lately, sometimes 2 or 4H. Bs go too soft on me too quickly.

    karmiclychee: Thank you! I'm actually just using a school-type HB pencil. Way back when I was doing animation study, our class equipment list told us to get a box of 72 pencils from the offie supply store; the brand was Papermate Mirado, and they were something like $13 canadian for the whole box. I got rather attached to them, so they're pretty much all I use. The way I get them bold in my scans is to lower the Gamma in Irfanview's colour corrections menu from 1.0 to about .5.

    I finally got my new anatomy books today, after walking to the post office to see if they would give them to me since they couldn't be arsed to deliver them. David Rubins, some Bridgman, and a book of Albinus plates put together by Robert Beverly Hale.

    I did some studies from the first two, and then doodled some armless torsos from my imagination at the bottom of the page. PLEASE crit them to shreds!

    Envodas: Hey thanks! :3 I was much too lame to go digital today; maybe tomorrow.

    Today I've got a bunch of gestures from posemaniacs, pixellovely, and then with the Rubins studies there's a bunch from my head based on a technique I found by mentler over here.
