Thread: SemperOne's Sketchbook
April 3rd, 2011 #1
Just starting up a sketchbook to keep track of progress, and hopefully one day other people can look back on it and be inspired the same way I was by MindCandyMan's journey thread.
I started drawing today after not having touched a pencil for over a year and having very little serious art experience, so it's going to be pretty underwhelming for a while!

First entry, two drawings from today, around 15 minutes for each object

Another sketch, bananas, took around 20 minutes?
I feel I could probably improve on my shading.. might try and take my time on the next drawing

Off to a good start, I look forward to seeing more posts.
From your first set of images. I'd say that when doing a still life (drawing of an inanimate object). Try to set up a scene Like this
For now keep it simple and try to stick to one or two strong light sources. Work first on getting the rough shapes accurately and in the correct perspective. Work at them for an hour or two. Really try to get everything sized and positioned correctly.

Thought I'd take a break from drawing from life and do a fun little sketch of Teemo, a character from League Of Legends!

Welcome and Nice start on a sketchbook! Still- Lifes look great. I agree with ThabisoMhlaba. Just set the objects like the picture.

Another drawing before bed, technically my second day of work started..
anyway I thought this came out pretty sluggish and messy, guess i need sleep for now, found it hard to do the head of the spoon and I'm not happy with it still

Couldn't sleep so I figured I'd try draw my hand, since hands are something I really struggle with, I was very disappointed with the outcome

Thought I'd doodle for a while before I go out today, felt like the sphere was a decent contribution, and I enjoyed doodling this little monster from my imagination so I put this up as well!
Will be adding some more still lifes later on today

Feel like I neglected drawing yesterday so I'm picking it up today/tommorow, here's something from today, a 30 min sketch of my hand, I feel like my shading is improving, started trying to crosshatch, however i feel i could have improved the proportions and perspective a lot
