    Fransua's SB. Per aspera ad astra

    Hey guys! I am a bit too old to start pursuing excellence in art,however I will do my best and gonna keep this sketch book constantly updated:p

    My goal is to start proper art education in a 1.5 years,hopefully I will be good enough by that time + will have enough moneyz.

    The plan is to learn anatomy by copying different anatomy books and attempting copies of the masters,and doing Bargue plates if I have enough patience :p Mixing it with short sketches from natures which I am terribly bad at. mastering line and shading as currently my line control is awful.

    Thats it for the introduction,

    C&C are welcome Few sketches below

    Good start, but one suggestion that I have: try to find book with more constructive anatomy (I'd recommend Loomis and then Bridgman). Your goal now should be not to copy perfectly but to understand a form.
    Good luck!

    Update

    @spiralpen thank you very much,will definitely check your sb

    Decided to try to update daily for atleast 3 weeks during which I have some more free time.
    Realized I have not clue about perspective of circles,elipses,angles,measuring etc.,
    so trying to do easier stuff now and watching an dvd by Marshall Vandruff who is just awesome.
    So hopefully by the end of dvd I will have enough theory in my head to start implementing.
    Thats the short plan.

    As for the updates:
    did 2 simplified head studies from Hogarth,
    one model from life (didn't check the perspective trying to eyeball),
    and few doodles from Loomis

    your studies look amazing, did you try to like study the loomis or Hogarth reference a few times and then draw them without reference to see what you learned? and you can do that till you feel you got it Anyway, great update!

    Quick sketches

    @A_Knight's_Art,fernandoart thank you very much guys :p

    @spiralpen Yeah definitely I will try to do it from imagination,however I feel I don't have a big enough database of images in my head :p

    I am terribly bad at sketches and thus sketches are really depressing for me. But I realized in order to get better I need to push myself and overcome my 'fear' of quick sketches. Any advice or critique is def. welcome.

    Update:

    Quick sketches of hands,a study of perspective few head doodles from imagination.

    That's pretty cool man, as an exercise, you could try to do one of those pages before starting whatever piece you're going to work on.. you know? Sort of a warm up..., don't spend too much time on it, just a bit to get your hand ready and your lines more fluid...

    Just my 2 cents...


    Keep posting!

    This is a good start. Try to practice daily, even if you don't feel like it and even if you don't post your results up here.

    Also keep in mind anatomy is really, really hard. If you get discouraged try drawing an apple or a banana with different lights on them. Drawing from life will help you improve a lot, since your brain thinks about the forms more than if you just copy stuff from a book....

    Hope this makes sense and helps you. Good luck.

    Hey,it's good to see that your working hard. I like your box studies and your construction looks pretty good. I guess I haven't much to say other than to keep drawing every day and don't give up(something I should do as well).
