    Steffens' Sketchbook

    Hello everyone!

    I am quite new here (my first login date is quite long ago, I know that, but I was a little scared of posting here, seeing all this fantastic stuff. Now I find courage while thinking: "Do you really want to spend your time dreaming what could be or are you willing to take the way and reach this goal?"). This is my thread, where I will learn drawing. You read this kind of stuff all day, so I will not make this longer as it must be. I already got Gottfried Bammes and all the equipment for digital painting, too.

    I am 22 years old, living in Germany and going to the 'hamburger technische kunstschule' (let's say: Art Student in 2nd semester). The time is now to do all that things and learn how this works (and don't be shy to demand new things ^_^). But first of all, I need constructive critics of all kind. I don't know where I stand, what makes sense to try next and where I need to practice more. Long term goal I set to me is the following: One day, and that will take years of practicing and trying, I will be a great artist.

    Edit 1: I will try update this thread every day. On the first few pages I was very lazy... a very bad start. In the next semester, I'll go strait forward to archive more goals.

    Edit 2: The actual things can be found at the last page. I try not to change something old except for this post.

    Yours, Steffen

    Here are the first ones. I realized that it doesn't make sense to start with little parts where it needs to capture the whole figure. I will do more 60second sketches of whole persons. Does it makes sense to start this from imagination?

    1. Art Rage 2
    2. Copic-Markers W3 to W7
    3. Pencil
    4. Pencil

    And I need to find out how to change the sketchbook-picture... oO

    I've found posemaniacs.com in the web. An awesome site, which let me do the next sketches. I've tried 20 sketches, each 30 seconds. It was pretty hectic, but I think the nervous 'args!' will go away when I practice more. I also thought about 60 second sketches, but there wasn't a way to get this... D:

    Here the daily Update. Done some perspective exercises due to Rob Alexanders book and more 30 second sketches. Tomorrow I will try some 60 second. Always when I thought "Ah, just the leg..." *ptchuu!* Time over... I also will not upload things which are older than 24 hours.

    EDIT 1: Oh my god, this sketches let the frame explode... how can I scale that a little?
    EDIT 2: Fixed.

    Ah yes, Gottfried Bammes. I too work with it, but I am just at the chapter of contrapost (do you say it like that in english?) but I love it to pieces. Best book on anatomy I've ever had.

    Really good studies of the leg! But I also like your figure drawings, they've got a certain expressive character. And the linework looks really nice.

    Thanks! I totally recognized how continuous working gives drawings 'more life'. I just peeked in your sketchbook. Good drawings, I'm curious in what your pencil works look like, especially poses in 30 seconds. Try it out, http://www.posemaniacs.com/ is really good. Keep practicing!

    Grüße, Steffen

    2. Old Town, from observation

    Here are the predicted 60 second sketches. I'm pride how that worked out, especially the end of that. Is it only a problem that I have alone, or is a lone simple standing human tricky to draw? oO Besides... thinking about how to do next. Colors, coloring and more detailed human work seems appropriate, doesn't it?

    Done more more linework for perspective and mood. It shows the Hamburger train station at Dammtor.

    Yesterday I was away, so hadn't a scanner for putting all this online. First, some more 60 second sketches, then three additional scribbles, incarnations of feelings like obsession, hunting urge and arrogance. hope you like that stuff, too. Done outside from time to time yesterday.

    More will follow today. I'll try some colored stilllifes.
