    My Sketchbook

    Hi,
    Here is my sketchbook. I am only an amateur (and I've only been that for a year), but I have so much fun now that I decide to try to post my studies, and to share and gather as much critics as possible, since I don't attend any class (I'm only studying oil with a teacher, but for pleasure, not with academic discipline). Thanks for looking.

    P.S. Sorry for my rusty and scholastic English!

    (Edit: trying to add a cover to my sb)

    Hello Ivan kolor,

    Welcome to CA and good of you to start a sketchbook thread but...I can't see any of your drawings for some reason. Did you upload them correctly using the upload manager?

    welcome and I must say your off to a good start here for ppl: here is two good ref sites, posemaniacs.com and kindgirls.com. Otherwise you just do alot of studies, everything you do you will learn from. Try and download some Loomis books and do some life studies. keep it up

    Cheers/ your friend PMB

    Nice start, just keep studying! I think you should try this and this as alternatives to posemaniacs, as they use real people and have the same function. Use these sites to make some gestures drawings, they're incredibly helpful.

    Thanks for your comment in my sketchbook Your still lifes are looking good and loomis is a good teacher when it comes to anatomy Try to draw as many people from life as you can - it helps to draw people who don't have ideal proportions I think. I've also found that doing a couple of sheets of very quick ( about 45 sec - a minute ) gesture drawings every day or as often as possible as a warm up for drawing helps a lot to loosen up and to get familiar with anatomy. I usually use pixelovely.com.

    Anyways, great start, keep up the studies and stay motivated

    I do draw every day, but being a busy mum, don't always get time to update.

    Comments and crits are always welcome

    @Featheredface: thanks!

    @Saffire D. Yes, drawing much as I can... I don't know..I'll try, but I don't know where I can push that. I would like to be more confident with figure, but I in trouble when sketching from mind..

    Here are some gouache study. The first, and some improvements in the second, from life.

    @Teapo: Thanks, Still life drives effectively my mind on a higher level of attention.. that's why I'm trying also to develope figure; but it's mainly a matter of time.. Sometimes I try to be quick, to become more confident, but the result isn't always that good..

    Like this, my first Charcoal portrait..Tried to go fast, messed up with proportion, but my hand was enchanted by this medium..

    Lower the eyes a bit on the head for that last portrait.

    Keep in mind that you can measure out the proprrtions of the face via the length and width of the eyes..

    thanks for suggestion, featheredface. Yes, I was not happy with the proportion of this draw.. I've 'learned' to begin from eyebrows, then nose and eye, to have a reference. I tried to be quick, bad result, but charcoal is fun and fits for portraits.

    Charcoal is great. You should try mixing some plain white chalk in with it, for highlighting and details. Use some medium tone paper, or dust over the whole surface with charcoal. Don't forget you get some great things done - use your finger, or tissue, or cloth to rub different textures into it. Try dry and wet brushes. Charcoal is great. You can use it very lightly to sketch out the proportions and then a dry brush to correct those light marks away....

    Nice SB. Keep posting stuff up. You'll get more crits and tips the more we see.

    Thanks donalfall, I'd try your suggestion! Charcoal has great possibilities, but it's also so primitive because doesn't allow you a total control, but it a bit like modelling a sculpture, with your fingers following the forms and "digging" the shadows.. I admit, I don't like white chalk with charcoal.. I tried sometimes, but always had a "grey" effect, loss of highlights.. maybe it's because of the paper..

    Your drawing studies of still life are really great. Keep posting. It would be nice to see some more figure studies too.
