    Capt Surge's Sketchbook

    This is going to be my sketchbook I feel like a total noob for not doing this sooner as I want to get better at drawing...painting...both...maybe everything. So I'm starting out small with spheres, cubes, and so on, and building up. I will post something everyday. Please evaluate my progress along the way so that we will learn together, thank you.

    First post is two spheres for study, I wanted that painterly feel to my image and I want that for all of my images.

    I have neglacted this thing for almost a year and now I'm back at concept art. This isn't going to be a regular sketchbook. I will be posting progress shots of what i do digitally so that me and others looking at this will learn something.This is the under painting for a still life im doing, i will post more when i get to a stopping point.

    Sketchbook

    my subconscious does not stop begging my conscious to draw.

    A new painting showing some of what I do to get to a good point in it.

    I drawing in pencil and charcoal, I have been trying to learn the classical methods of drawing on my own. I start with a basic block in of the big shapes using angles, then I block in shadow masses that i see.

    Next is to add color, sometimes people get fooled into thinking that there maybe only a few little colors but I try to look carefully.

    I will refine this soon so I can finish.

    Another work in progress to practice some thinking skills. I'll post some pencil sketches as soon as I get the driver installed for my printer.

    Update on my soldier, I just figured out that I need to just let go of things in my picture which means looser drawings or paintings. Need to work on poses for characters as well.
