    Drylegs sketches, studies and doodles

    Wellcome to my sketchbook!


    I've been drawing pretty much all my life.
    Mostly from imagination
    I grew up with a great interest in games, movies and comics, (preferably with a lot of violence) and that have influenced me a lot.

    In august 2010 I started to think more seriously about becoming an illustrator or concept artist.
    So I began to study human anatomy, the real world and other things were I knew I was laking in knowledge.

    In this first post I'll start of with some of the first drawings from when I began in august and work my way to present day

    I would love it if you told me what you think.
    If there's anything I'm missing, should concentrate on or try out.
    What what my strengths and weaknesses are.

    here goes (you might want to zoom out)

    They're all really incredible! I always appreciate talent when it comes to drawing people. I considered myself an artist for a while but all I could ever draw was animals, and human bodies, but could never get the faces quite right. So really good job. Seriously

    wow really good stuff, you already have a good perception of light and you grasp the anatomy quite well. Keep it up, i guess if anything you should probably work on fluidity and form. Cheack out http://www.posemaniacs.com/ to work on that and pretty much anything, really good daily exercises there. can't wait to see your next batch.

    Very nice progress throughout the sequence of works. Now that you have some fundamental skills with the figure, try putting it into an environment - try making some compositions out of it. Go out in public and draw what you see - groups of people, that are interacting with each other and the environment.

    I have a habit of getting into detail pretty quickly so I'm gonna try a different approach and use it on landscapes. Im gonna try to see it as abstract shapes and only use 3 och 4 values of shade to describe forms. That way I have to stay focused on the picture as a whole when deciding on the values and I think that's something I need to do more often.

    This one took about an hour and it leaves a lot to wish for (as we say in Sweden) but I believe

    This is looking really great . I really like how you're managed to capture the landscapes really simply. The progression of your anatomy sketches is really good too.

    At this weeks drawing meeting we tried to design grey dwarfs (from Ronia, the Robber's Daughter ). This is my interpretation. My plan was to make them look threatening to the eye but harmless in nature (easy to knock over).

    I hade some trouble making the small rocks and bushes look authentic and
    not just like small dots. I realized that their pattern describes the shape of the ground so I tried to look for directions and rythm rather than copying each one.

    Thoughts about posemaniacs: At first I thought that it would be pointless to draw 3d models since they can't represent the real thing and how the muscles react to different moves. Allthough after trying a few times I think that it's great basic training. I hope they do some poses without the skinless texture, sometimes it camoflauges the pose when it's a dynamic view

    Update from Berlin

    Have been drawing as often as I can here. I don't have a scanner so I can't show the studies I've made in the museums or anything else that uses paper.
    And the display on my camera is broken so taking acceptable
    pictures is so difficult it makes my face hurt.

    Prost!

    You definitely have a good grasp of anatomy and values, very nice. You're including a few environmental studies which is also very good. Maybe try putting the 2 together and practice characters within environments or at least in a space. Happy posting
