    I for imagination, O for observation.

    From here on out, I think I will put everything into perspective. Most of the stuff from the last page are eyed or guessed.

    50. I. I started doodling on the paper and it turned into a mech design. I creased the paper by accident on the bottom left while trying to scan. 4/24/2011

    P.S. I love my new sketchbook. I can't believe my local Blick store doesn't supply them, so I haven't discovered it until I read about it in someone's sketchbook. It is the Canson "Biggie" sketchbook. The smooth acid free surface allows for fine detail and ink. And it is the cheapest sketchbook per capita of quality I have ever gotten, with the exception of the crappy anomaly of me picking up one with broken glue binding. Speaking of the binding, the binding is portrait style with paper covers, and it makes the sketchbook really easy to scan.

    Hey there, you're doing quite well. Remember everyone draws differently, this indicates straight away that no matter what you do, you do it your way. And that is your style.

    Finding out what makes art YOUR art however is a bit trickier to pin down. Keep drawing everyday and you will find out your strong points very soon! Keep the stuff coming mate, I like your mechs but it feels like you could do something more with them. Perhaps strengtening the lines of areas that are closer to the viewer for starters would be a good practice? You will be amazed with what it will add.

    P.s. I took another look at your mechs. I see you draw using correct perspective, way to go!

    Mmm, sci-fi cyborb babes, now that's what men call art lol. Definitly liking what I'm seeing (though the pages do seem a bit light) so i'm going to check back on what you have in store for your next update for sure ^^

    I saw you applied it! Continue to do that, in fact apply some more. A really solid thick dark line will really your art pop out if applied correctly.

    About anatomy:
    This subject is so enormous I don't even know where to begin so I will keep this simple. Everything around us is made out of shapes, literally anything. Some are more complex than others, some are as simple as a sphere. The trick with anatomy is to see those shapes in order to make an anatomically realistic body. Or rather: what our eyes interpret as realistic.

    Now beware of 1 mistake a lot of people do here: when trying to visualize the form alot of people will draw the form, and don't apply any kind of shading or foreshortening, which makes the thing looks extremely flat. Do try to avoid that by thinking in the space of whatever you are drawing. A hand would go backwards when facing away from the camera, a feet that kicks the cameraman would be huge. You know this already probably.

    I envy you for being able to post works so fast though, I really need a scanner myself.

    No time to draw more sci fi stuff. I have lots of homework. But here is one I just did.

    Pervy: I shaded the darker parts very lightly, but that is the only shading I did. I didn't want to obscure the details because these are preliminary for my portfolio. I am going to chose some of the pictures and probably redo them in charcoal on thicker paper.

    Strike-Zer0 Yea, I find fore-shortening in 3 point perspective really hard, so I just use my eye to get it. Plus it saves all the planning and messy lines.

    P.S. Your link in the signature links not to your sketchbook.

    Strange, I'll fix it after writing this.

    Nice, you're drawing girls. In my book that is always ''the'' way to practice anatomy. Your sketches do seem very light on paper, yet I see that some lines are a bit thicker than others. Don't feel neglected to define the other lines too, it's all for the sake of making things pop!

    I'd like to see constructive lines. How you build on your shapes. Semi-finished sketches are good but we see more about your thought process if you show the other lines too.

    I've got about 1.5 sketchbook full of studies lying here that I sadly cannot upload due to having no scanner, so I doubt you will find anything that could help you properly for your skills as it's all digital and I realized digital sketching is absolutely nothing for me. But please have a look!

    @ Strike-Zer0: I do my sketches on newsprint. I don't normally show sketches, because that would take a lot of time to scan:

    58. I. Preliminary sketches for picture #56. 4/26/2011

    Nice, love the sci-fi girl. Though to be honest, I really dig your life studies a lot more than the imaginative. They seem to have a bit more of a dynamic feeling to it. Keep it up.

    BTW, maybe when you scan your stuff, you could push the contrast a bit more, they are a bit too light, kinda hard to see.

    Yea, someone else said it was too light, and that is because the paper is really thin and I don't want to damage it. Plus, I don't want to focus too much on turning it into a fine art. I am just putting down the concepts, then I will transfer the good ones to better paper and turn it into fine art, so I shaded very lightly for the concept.

    59. I. Preliminary sketch for #60 (next attachment). 4/26/2011
    60. I. More Sci-fi stuff: A "Robo-bomber". This one is inspired by music (What music? Rock music this time). I decided to put in some value for this one just for practice. 4/26/2011

    P.S. Do you think these robots fit the yu-gi-oh card illustrations style?

    More and more I find myself spending less and less time on preliminary sketches on my newsprint papers, as I can just begin on a good sketching paper with the design in mind shortly after just starting to sketch on the newsprint paper. So perhaps soon after wards, I can just go ahead and draw without having to do preliminary sketches of concepts.

    Anyway, here is another cybo laday!

    61. I. Heart Shape Over-Kill! preliminary sketch. 4/27/2011
    62. I. Inspired by... HEARTS! I named her Heart Shape Over-kill. Her weapon is fueled with cooties. (realized her left hand is too long) 4/27/2011

    3.I. Inspired by music. 4/8/2011
    4.I. Armor is inspired by The Lord of the Rings. Circa 9/5/2010

    You just have started out this drawing diary
    and there are already a lot of great concepts and I
    can see an excellent potential here.
    Make those lines count, increase the
    drawing contrast and keep them awesome
    pieces coming.

    Hello there! Love those pictures of knights on their horses, they're nice and dynamic. Interesting concepts you're coming up with too. Keep up the good work and never stop those studies.

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    LtPlissken I am drawing a bit too light. It was a habit which developed in me earlier because I didn't want to damage the paper with heavy strokes. I guess I can try to make things darker now.
    Naidy Thanks, I might draw some more knights on horses. The two horseman before this post had their gestures inspired by music.

    64. I. My new avatar, since last one was too light to see. I tried to make things darker here: I started doodling while listening to music and it turned into some guy with sunglasses. So I guess it counts as inspired by music. 4/30/2011

    I will be doing some private work, so I won't be uploading too often.

    Your observational work is fantastic. Love the statue head and the glasses.

    Some of the scans are on the pale side which is a shame because my shitty eyesight cant make out the details. I find a way round that is to increase the contrast once the image is scanned. That way, you can keep your initial drawings pale without damaging the newsprint but allow people to see them clearly onscreen.

    Something I noticed about your anatomy work in the imaginary drawings that I figured I'd point out. Seems your females are much stronger and more anatomically precise than your males and horses. Might be worthwhile spending some time working on obersvation studies of men and horses to improve your imaginary work because the concepts are great, they just need some precision behind them.

    Great work, and good luck with the novel and other projects.
