Thread: Sketchupbook Oopsdates
June 5th, 2011 #1
Hello and welcome,
I started this sketchbook on June 2011 after realizing how I wanted to excel in creating art and none of the other things that I thought I wanted.
Doing this seriously and yet playfully is the only thing I ever managed to do religiously and consistently, it's in a way much easier than studying math or programming.
You can check my progress on the pages of this sketchbook, best and recent stuff are always at the back.
Good and helpful critique is a welcome thing and I thank you for your support on my continuous journey.

My work is mainly pencils. I didn't draw more than a few rough sketches in the past nine months, that's what first love does to you. Head's clear now though.
I'll reward myself with a tablet if I continue with persistent work and move to digital, but for now, I have to finish that Loomis book I own.
Some other stuff (mostly doodlery):

Thank you for your reply in my sketchbook.
A very nice start you have there! I am sure you will get more replies when you get more active- you seem to have some solid experience in this, are you/have you been to art school, are you selftaught or hobbyist?
I always love to see pencil work, as I use it the most as well. I like your straight lines when shading and defining form, especially on the sheet with the basketballer.
Keep it going!

I have more sketches I did at home, but scanning them all and uploading is so tedious it's overwhelming... but I'll try my best with the next batch, man, how did I ever consider being an engineer? lol!
-> LordLouis : Thanks for the kind words man! I'm self taught, but I cooperatedly learned with another beginner artist for a year or two until we were distanced inevitably.
-> Kungfoowiz : I really love what Loomis did and how his books are written and his good taste in women, I'm sure putting a sig now
One tiny thing I did upload is -

Woah some nice stuff going on. Seems like you have some natural talent

-> metalhead3 : As natural as practice goes
Decidedly I needed to update with what I have thrown up on some slips of paper before the dreaded work time - so, enjoy, and let the sketchbook thrive into infinity!
One of those is the mnemonic self-portrait, guess which is the one. Next time, a real self-portrait (using a mirror and stuff).

Nice start man.
Your pencil work is already looking great. Texturing and shading with pencils has always been a struggle for me. Which is just another way of saying I should probably be drawing something right now lol.
Have you ever heard of Glenn Vilppu? If not, you should check out some of his stuff sometime. He's a damn good teacher when it comes to learning form and drawing three dimensionally. His stuff completely changed my understanding of drawing. And it your hands it could be dangerous. In the best possible way.
Anyways, keep it up man, can't wait to see your progress.

-> MBK: Glenn Vilppu? I'll check him out right away! I thank you for the comment, friend
-> metalhead3: Thanks, I wish I'd be more comfortable drawing people from REAL LIFE, I really fail at that but had some good practice during these past two days.
-> Kungfoowiz: Yeah, meugal is hot. Although I'm not sure why I named her so, because it stands for 'round' or 'circle' in hebrew.
So, I'll be looking for life drawing lessons in my city. Hopefully I'll be able to start attending those as soon as I find any.
Without further ado:

-> donm: Thanks a bunch!
Here are a few updates, I had a few nice opportunities to sketch people on the bus. Bought two new sketchbooks, one is small and the other is a little bigger- both with a pretty black cover.
I used pixelovely.com a bit yesterday for some of these, I really like it and the girls they have in their gallery are pretty good looking.
