Thread: Aereon's Sketchbook
May 23rd, 2011 #1
THIS THREAD IS PRETTY OLD! PLEASE GO TO THE LATEST POST BY CLICKING HERE (:
Hey dudes, so after debating it for a few weeks, I decided to finally make my own sketchbook. :3 I'm a bit of a noob here though, so probably no one knows me xD Anyways, I hope you peeps enjoy my stuff nonetheless~
I really hope on this site that I'll be able to get more advice than I do on Deviantart. Because for one my stuff doesn't usually get that many comments anyway, and when I do it's not advice ;( I wanna improveee xD
Please look at latest stuff :D
I'm currently in college doing a art diploma, and hope to go to Uni in September to do illustration :D I'd really love to try out graphic novels, storyboard drawing and perhaps character design for games. :3 I can only dream xD
Yesterday I went to my sister's music concert, and as per usual I took my sketchbook with me :3 It's great being able to be inspired with the music and have so many people to draw from at the same time xD Though they had to be quite quick sketches cos otherwise people would catch me staring at them..
It's pretty helpful though. Especially with faces and shading and stuff from a distance..

Hey, we're in the same boat as far as career future goes. c: Those are the three things I'm going after. I may see you someday in the industry (which is such a cool thought).
Great sketches. I got some advice from a concept artist/graphic novelist once and he told me to draw anything/everything since you could be drawing anything in a comic. These are awesome though. The arms are really expressive on the conductor; I keep expecting him to move.
If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

DKHutcheson - Haha yay! :3 Lol that is quite a cool thought~ hehe xD
Ooh that's a pretty cool idea o: I may try that some time~ And thank you! I'm kinda disappointed about how the hands turned out though :/
More sketches: Some macaws I drew a while ago from photos~ I love macaws :3
And a big caboodle of digital images..
A test, taking an Original Character and putting him into a more realistic style (: I've done a lot of work with his character and this was quite fun..
2 random paintings..
Trying my hand at still lives.. I really need to do more of these.
Big spam of image lul
My painting stuff is so awful compared you lot I need to get better ;(
Ad it's so strange too cos this isn't my usual style when it comes to digital, it's something I'm trying out. I think I like it not sure xD

Design sheet for a character I'm working on for a comic I plan to do. Did it this morning, though been working on the project for a while. It's called 'The Adventures of Leodalf' and this is the main main character, I might do some for the sides as well (: But the most design sheets ya gonna see are for this dude.
The comic is based in medieval times with a fantasy twist. Original huh? Lolll
Anyways, hopefully even though I'm using a popular setting, I can make this comic kind of original~

Since your thinking of going into character design and storyboards etc... I'd definitely start checking out some anatomy studies (You'll hear this alot, I heard it tons too haha). You can never practice these enough though. That and just keep drawing, both from life and of course from your imagination for fun.
Pretty sure this link has a bunch of andrew loomis' books
They're always a good start if you've never heard of him.
I suggest the figure drawing books, then the heads and hands book is also great

JFierce: Yay, thanks for those I downloaded them and have looked through the first few anatomy bits, and I found them really helpful (: So thank youuu
Some figure studies I tried out using some anatomy stuff I learned from the loomis books. I was trying out rotating a pose from imagination.
The first one was easiest , the second one I expected to be the hardest but it wasn't that bad, the third one is the one I found the hardest for some reason, even though it should just be the first one flipped basically.. oh well~

Some sketches I did during the last hour of my doggies and some spontaneous hand sketches Started a new A6 SB today, I love these little things. Easy to carry round, they have a soft cover, a little pocket for pictures, a bookmark thing and really good paper.
I wuvvvv my dogs they're so cute xD I never really draw them though which is weird, cos I've been living around dogs for more than half my life lol
I'm quite happy with my dog sketches because of that though (: We have 2 at the moment, a german shepherd and a golden labrador-retriever. The german shepherd is called Umber and he's still a puppy (though fully grown). He's a big baby But he's such a sweetheart lol.
We only get to keep him for year and then he goes back to guide dogs, cos my mum trains puppies for them It's been 11 years of this routine and I still get sad watching them leave xD Oh well, they all go to good homes (:
Our other dog is around 10 years old and is really lazy xD We actually trained him for guide dogs and he got rejected, so we decided to keep him
After each sketch I fixed it so that I couldn't rub it out, I think it was quite a good excersise d:
Havent drawn hands for such a long time.. they look more like 90 year old hands than 19 lolll, oh wells it's all practice~
If you look closely at the hands, you can see a little mini portrait of my Dad~ hehe.

Sevarenge: You're welcome dude (: You keep rocking too :D
My latest piece thing.. I told myself I would try and post as little fanart as possible here, because I do too much of it, but for this piece I tried out something new so I hope you like :D
So one of my many fandoms is DC comics (as you might be able to guess from my icon) :P This is Starfire (with a slightly altered costume based of the cartoon version) and Richard Grayson (The first Robin) :>
Lol, you can totally tell I love this thing too much cos I put my 'DD' instead of my usual SIZ sig thing.. Also I HATE MY SCANNER. So much detail lost ;(
So for this piece I tried out doing a sketch in my sketchbook first then drawing over it on plain paper, it worked out better than I thought, and I found it quite easy to improve on the original sketch which I worried about xD
Anyways, these are just the beginning lines. The shapes on Robins face are meant to represent where I'll put shadow later, if I work on this sketch some more I'll post an update (:
Hope you like! :D
Did this with my favourite mechanical pencil, and a eraser (:
No reference used :>
Took around... 2 hours?

Isn't it always the way? I updated this thing loads, and then I don't post at all for a month.
Weird how I came back exactly a month later though.. Haha
Anyway, here are to latest sketches I've done.. I'm afraid they're fanart.
First one's Rimmer from Red Dwarf (massive fan) in his cowboy get up
Second one of the 11th doctor, from that episode he wore a Stetson to meet the others..
There's a bit of a theme going on here Hehe
I do a lot of these kind of sketches... these 2 are both done on 1 layer.
I'm not usually very good at hats, so I'm pretty happy with the results of these (:

Haven't updated here in a longggg time, so here's my latest piece of art, which I did the night before last on a whim. I couldn't sleep, hadn't painted for ages and felt a bit guilty, so jumped out of bed and spent like a hour on this. Started as a doodle and became something more :3
I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Obviously it's not meant to be anatomically correct or anything, because even though the skull was referenced (I want to practice more with skulls in the future, animal ones as well, they really help with learning the form of something), there would obviously be muscles and stuff as well under the skin so the skull is not meant to be.. yeah. xD
Not painted a skull before, or really looked at one and drawn it in detail like here before. I'd like to though, in future, try a lot more with skulls, because I found after painting the skull, the face structure was a lot easier to paint than usual Yay.

Decided to upload some pages from my Uni sketchbooks so far. I got onto the course I wanted to and Uni is great (: Hope you like these... They're just random combinations not necessarily related. I went to the Zoo so there's some sketches from that (not the Lions, they were done from a photo). Everything else is done by observation though, in life drawing they make us experiment a lot with using our hands/eyes differently so please read the notes on the page! (:
