    Vanillatea's sketchbook

    Been drawing for a few years now, and have just started getting around to trying to really combat my weaknesses (instead of just avoiding drawing bits I can't do!). So I'm hoping that I'll start to see some real improvement, so critique is very welcomed!

    I'm a student studying computer animation, and am currently learning 3d modelling, but without a proper foundation in drawing/design I don't seem to be getting very far, so learning here I come!

    All these drawings are from observations.

    Been trying to do 30second poses on my graphics tablet but I can't seem to make my hand make the same shapes it does when drawing on paper...
    Will post pencil drawings once I have a working scanner again. Will do some Bridgman studies tonight I think.

    Nice start! I like your mark making and loose lines. Try using a book about anatomy, like loomis for example, thats what I'm using

    @ Carlos-will, thanks I've looked at Loomis a few times, but find I can't get beyond his style, I've got a few Bridgman books though and far too many anatomy books, so I just need to start using them properly!

    some 20second poses, and some bridgman studies. Going to spend the next few days focusing on anatomy instead of poses, looking at muscles and things

    Practised a bit of painting today, think I'm improving my rendering skills which is good. Self portriat from a photograph. (admittedly, I got board and couldn't work out the best way to render a beanie...)

    NOW I'll go back and do that anatomy practise I was meant to be doing...

    Looking at arms today, don't really understand them yet from a drawing perspective, so will keep working at them and reading.

    Also two other things I did. Realised I have a horrible problem where my eyes get very tried of a piece quite quickly, and I have problems filling in detail, hopefully if I go back to it tomorrow I might be re-enthused, possibly I just really need to work in stages.

    very nice figure studies, yes you should work more on the arms, also hands and feet i see you r having trouble with, so you just keep practicing : )

    -We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

    @ rem92, I hadn't noticed I'd slipped back into the 'avoiding hard bits' habit again, thanks for pointing it out! Tried to make sure I added hands to arms today.

    Decided to give Loomis another go, and found it really helpful, so lots of looking at arms today. Glad I've spent most of this week drawing, I feel it's been really beneficial.

    Haven't been able to draw as much as I'd like over the past few days, as I've had a lot of shifts at work. But thought I'd do some leg studies (and pencil work! it's weird changing between pencil and tablet), and will do some muscle studies over the next week when I have time.

    Think I should probably work on my rendering skills at bit as well, and actually try and get some ideas down for stuff that isn't just studies!

    Haven't had much time to work on drawing due to shifts at work, but I've been studying heads over the past few days when I've had time. Might be taking a break from drawing this week and instead model a human female during my non-work-time.

    Got some more time for drawing, this makes me happy. Think I'm going to start trying to draw lots of expressive faces as it seems like good practise to better understand how the face works.

    Something I'm working on and have got a bit stuck with. I know there are lots of issues but I don't know which ones to change first, or how to fix the lighting. Hoping to come back to it.

    Another quick WIP. Need to start working on my stamina. I'm looking forward to working into the lighting though, as lighting is normally something I avoid.
