    Adam's Hybrid 2d/3d Sketchbook

    Hello all,

    I've been reading threads, and browsing sketchbooks here for a little while, and have been inspired by MCM's journey and so many of the other sketchbooks that I have decided to start a sketchbook here of my own.

    My artistic strengths are video editing and photo manipulation, but my grasp of drawing and painting is low; something I hope to improve ! I used to be okay with 3d as well, but have forgotten most of it. I want to work on both 2d and 3d and find my own style for integrating the two.

    Any feedback will be appreciated I will try to draw and post as much as I can this summer!

    Just a quick sketch tonight. I haven't been using my scanner because I find it doesn't play nicely with my 2H pencil lines, will scan whenever I use ink.

    No 3d today. Deleted blender to make room for version 2.57 which was just released. New stable version released just in time for my re-learning of it!

    Getting back into blender (trying the 2.56 beta), learning again from scratch...

    Here's a bit of fanart to flex the old drawing from reference muscles after falling off the drawing wagon over the weekend.

    I find my scanner is not doing a great job with my sketches. Even with ink it's a bit iffy. I might try to take photographs using a tripod straight on. I suppose it could just be that my scanner isn't great. Do other people here prefer photographing their work to scanning it?

    I've posted two for comparison:

    Hey, welcome and grats on starting your SB, it's the first step into learning

    Now, for what I can see, you're just starting out when it comes to drawing humanoid subjects... I would recommend hitting up some Loomis (Figure Drawing For All It's Worth) and maybe some Bridgman (Constructive Anatomy)... read a bit from there, and practice their exercises, they should help you get a better understanding of the human figure.

    Other than that, keep posting and keep drawing!

    An extremely belated thank you for the reply! I clearly let my art drop for a bit, but am going to try getting back into it. I've a little bit over that time, most of which isn't very good, but I'll post a bit now.

    After a bit of a break with my art due to life being busy, I'm getting back into it full steam. I have done a few things over the past two years, and will post a few of them shortly. Most recently I've done some 2d and 3d sketches this week that are particularly seasonal:

    It's good to be back, but I'm sure it will take a bit of time to shake off the rust
