    More gouache

    These three apples took longer than I expected. Managed to mess up the left one in between and had to correct it. Then put my finger on the still wet shadow of the rightmost apple... grrr!

    Oh my, seems like this gets to a bi-weekly update sketchbook!

    Anyway, here's what I managed today:

    A sea-horse from reference:

    Animal studies from reference

    doodle from mind

    I'm quite glad that I found the confidence again to let my pencil wander over the paper and see what's coming out of it.

    Hi Jester,

    Your Gouache especially makes your afford shine. The last three pencils don't that much thou. I would love to see a new, more worked out picture of yours, please

    NICE!

    Animals galore!

    Since my last post I had found some time for drawing but not for scanning, so this is gonna be a large update.

    Hermchen, first of all I want to thnk you for dropping by. True, long time no see! Thanks for your crit! I took it seriously and started to copy some animal drawings from Bammes' book in order to get a feeling for pencill again. Seems like painting comes to me more naturally than drawing, especially when trying to render shapes and not to use lines to define form. Probably it's just because it's faster... and I'm a lazy person.

    Here we go then, all are taken from reference photos mainly from NG and GEO magazines:

    I think I have to explain the following lions series: I'm not a cat person, but I enjoy lions and tigers at the zoo very much. Therefore I have quite a collection of lions' photos. These I want to tackle next. Then, probably next spring, it'll be off to the zoo again to do some life drawings. Therefore I started by learning their anatomy and general shapes from Bammes by copying.

    More lions' studies

    I promised more studies, here they are:

    The first two pages are from Bammes again, the third page from reference from a NG magazine.

    After having gained some confidence with drawing the lions I thought I'd tackle people again and - am absolutely frustrated!

    I can't get it! I apply the same techniques as when drawing animals from reference but my persons just look humble and stiff and just urrrghs! :vomit:

    Jester's Sketchbook


    First I tried to get the main shapes and shadows/lights values. Then I tried to understand the basic forms and constructions. However, both look awful (and I'm not talking about the face, that's another chapter...!)

    Jester's Sketchbook

    Anyone who can help? I'm going to post this in the helpful sections, too. I feel that I'm just an inch to the solution of my problem, but I don't see it!

    i dont think thay look as bad as you think .. i think that you are really starting to see things diffrently so your a bit more critical on your self
    next thing with the basic shapes gig is .... start at the big shapes /forms .. and start to see how thay interloc/enter/overlay the other shapes <thay wont be quite as basic now insted of jsut a cilender for an arm start adding the shapes of the muscle and such >now when you go to apply the light to it think about the surfaces
    and the relation ship to the light .... rember the angle of incidence is = to the angle of reflection .. that saying the angle it hits some thing its the same angle it comes off some thing

    try and bounce a billard ball on a rail a couple times and you will see it hiting at a 45deg angle will come off at a 45 angle

    if the light is bounced away from the viewer that surface will be darker then the one were the light is bounced into the eye /if some thing blocks the light from hiting the surface entirely then of corse its the darkest bit
    the big diffrence form animals to people is i think we see our self all the time and really know waht we look like so its verry easy to be much more critacal ...of drawings of humans look at the human head pretty basic shapes for inital construction but ... look at the face .. theres sooo many surfaces soo much subtle varriation on even <espectialy on thin peoples faces >but dont beat your self over it just keep going and eventaly you will build up a visual memeory /vocabulary and wont have to think about it soo much any more

    hope that helps some
    i think you are makeing great progress even though you might be frustrated a bit ... alot of times we are getting better and we dont evne realize it till much later
    Jester's Sketchbook hope that doesnt mess ya up ... it really helps if you pick where your light source is so you can have it in mind when trying to apply light .. put a mark down for where the light is for a while
