    Cherrycobbler's Sketches (updated)

    Hey there.
    16 year old aspiring to be a concept artist, thought I might as well log my progress here :3

    First was referenced from a picture, the second was a bottle that was sitting next to me.
    The last was a portrait done for a friends birthday.

    More to come later

    aw fuck

    fuhh, back after some virus screwed over my computer. had to reinstall windows, and lost all my pictures AND my copy of photoshop Bumming hard.
    first off, some face studies from reference from march,
    then, I got my friend to model for me. He could not for the life of him sit still for more than 10 minutes though head turned out pretty small on all of them. got some other studies I should post, but I think i'll save them so i'll be more motivated to post more frequently.

    Oh no, computer viruses suck. I love your little pill bottle and you are definitely headed in the right direction. I find the head on your figure studies quite small. Also, a tip for constructing head is instead of starting with an oval start with a sphere to represent the skull and then attach the chin with a half square of have oval (depending on the shape of the person's chin ofcourse). Read more about it in Andrew Loomis' "drawing the head and hands" found here as a free pdf. For that matter, take a look at all of them. They all have some handy tips.
    Keep up the hard work!

    you're doing great but you might want to blend the colors a little more.

    yeah, sometimes I get lazy when i'm shading, and thats a definate problem, I gotta learn to be more patient.

    1- Charles Bargue arm studies. one of them got cut off, but no biggie.
    2- lost the reference for this one, so I don't think i'll be finishing it, but here was the start of a desert landscape.

    summer time, more studies.

    its summer time now, and i'm finally off, which means less focus on school, and more on studies.

    1. female faces studies, most took three minutes or less.
    2. Male face studies, most took 3 minutes or more.
    3. girl face study, this one in photoshop. never finished.

    Nice work! Wish I had your enthusiasm for studies. As far as breaking free of same-face syndrome - maybe try faces of different ethnicities and ages?

    :U :U :U

    I love studies actually, I can usually notice improvements in my drawings from imagination after each set of studies I do. Wish I would've done them when I was younger too, but oh well!
    Thats a good tip, sadly, my reference picture folder is just full of white people from the ages 20-30, sameface everywhere. guess I'll just have to change that.

    This is some drawing from imagination I never completely finished.

    It'll be interesting to see what the face colour study would look like finished. Liking your drawing from the figure class - how you finding it and how much help do you get from the tutor?

    hurrrdurrrr

    I really don't think i'll ever finish it, i'd rather start a new one and practice getting the basic shapes down instead of making a completed piece.
    The class is uninstructed, so they just give us a model, but sometimes some other members of the class who are more experienced will give me pointers, teach me a couple techniques. Its honestly just that its drawing for about 3 straight hours, with a still model infront of you that really helps. usually when i'm left alone to draw, I can't focus.
    I had some more drawings from that class, but I did them with charcol and just threw em in my bag, now they're all smudged .
    heres one that turned out alright though.
    (that model was the most ordinary looking guy i'd ever seen )

    For an ordinary guy he turned out allright

    While your crosshatchings follow the form on the figure, these in the background don't. You could try to shade more evenly.

    Also pay attention to the hands, and incorporate more of the bones than just straight lines. Where the bones meet is a slight curve to the outside for instance.

    seeing some really good studies here, I especially like your drawings from life, the nintendo ds and pill box are great, I like your delicate use of colour and attension to detail. The last set of faces look kind of anime-ish, was that your intention? Wooden Mango's link to Loomis's work may help you and improve your portraiture and figure drawing skills.

    I hope you keep posting, you've made a very promising start
