    Silent-samurai's sketchbook updated 10 October 2011

    Sup people my name is David, 23, from London UK and I wanted to be an illustrator/concept artist. I've studied art for the past 5 years but now studying creative computing which is a mixture of graphic design, animation and some illustration (which that theres an access course of illustration I'll hopefully do next year)
    I've been kind of lurking this site probably around 08 or 09, but now it's the time to work on my sketchbook and just forget about deviantart cos it's just a place of popularity of nothing but fanboyism art stuff (not that I hate the site it's not it for me for some reason).
    I'll be posting work for some time within a week but if not then there will be some delay of not posting .
    Please give comments for how I can improve.

    Have a look and take care

    Hey, sorry I couldn't get back to your messages sooner. The sketches you have posted aren't too big so don't worry about that.
    One thing though: When you're posting in a the sketchbook forum do NOT keep creating new threads for each sketchbook update. Create one thread and keep posting in that same thread. It helps keep all your stuff together in one place so people could see your progress without having to look everywhere in your archives.

    Keep drawing!

    @Dana_T cool Dana will do that if I can I'm still not used to the site yet lol. I got a lot more stuff to show but I have to use a scanner in my college to scan most of my work to show to the masses cos I hate taking photo's of my work. the lighting seems so off from I'm aiming to take a photo.

    Thanks for the support

    Good start! :] One bit of advice to start with concerning hair - don't use thick, obvious lines to define the strands of hair when you're trying to achieve realism. It can work when you're doing it intentionally to gain a certain kind of style perhaps, but when you're trying to study from a photo or make it realistic, study how hair naturally looks from many many photos. Study how the hair falls around the head, especially in different cuts and styles, as well as how hair is usually drawn in segments and in varying shades.

    With things like hair and fur, I've always found it really useful to find an artist and their work that you really admire, and look at how they construct their hair. Do they include a lot of detail, or is it mostly shapes and color? Is it ultra detailed or more stylized and simple like an Adam Hughes approach?

    Here's a couple pictures just quickly gathered for a little reference. :]

    Definitely keep going, draw as much as you can!

    @Myszt Thank you I've been studying hair for quiet a while but I still need to get used to drawing the shapes and then add detail to make it pop. I've got some little hair magazines at a good small price and it will pay off if I like a particular style that looks wavey and stylish but otherwise I'm in need to draw like curls and stuff like that. I've seen the links you gave me and it really opened my eyes aswell as my thoughts on how an actual hair really flows like that.

    Thank you so much for the assist

    I have to agree, a good start just keep on studying and draw as often as you can. Maybe one or two things I remember my live drawing teacher/tutor told me or us during studies:

    a - if you struggle with your line or think your art doesn't look the way you want it, it could be helpful to try a new medium (maybe a brushpen or thick marker instead of a fineliner or to some extreme brush and ink). Or try a different size of paper; I vividly remember her thrusting a 50 by 70 cm at me when I asked for another A3 (that being a scary size back then).

    b - don't be afraid to get your doodlebook out any place you go (quote : "Go out, and draw, draw, draw ... do something.)

    At least it helped me to go further and try some new things and evolve artistically.

    Have a look at my SketchbookThanks!

    New sketches

    @Jamtob2 Thanks for the advice man I appreciate it ^^.
    I know my lines tend to be a little wonky but the thing is is that I have not spend enough time sketching in my sketchbook cos I've got a crap load of coursework. Even though I'm learning some new ways of crosshatching with some faber castell pen which are friggin awesome lol.

    Anyways new sketches: I've been looking at a Japanese model called Aki Hoshino (which I adore her body) DROOOL lool. I've got like a dozen of photo's of her but I will somehow draw a lot from her cos she's been doing a lot of cool poses that can help me shape up.

    Here are a few pics on my A5 sketchbook featureing her and hope I'll do more of her this week.

    Lii-chan Thank ya Lii-chan for the kind words, You keep on truckin I'll keep checking on ya if I have a chance just keep posting

    Hey all been a while since I've been posting, even though I got work done at college but now it's half term .
    I've been sketching on/off and it is kinda irritating after a while cos I got college work on my animation works to presentation (although the presentation is done so I'm still doing my animation at home).
    Other than that I've got a George Bridgman constructive anatomy book that I've brought from amazon UK and it's an brilliant book to learn from.
    So here the photo's
