    Scizzorhäns' Skecthbook

    So this is my sketchbook. . . all constructive critique is welcome. I haven't had a real art class since 2nd grade, but I went to an after-school art psuedoclass type thing in 5th or 6th grade. I'm gonna be a junior next fall, so I figured since the probability of me dual-enrolling in an art class at a college is pretty low, I could just make a sketchbook on here and consider it my art class. I hope to one day be either a manga illustrator or a fine artist, but I'm still open to other jobs in the art field.

    So here's a picture of an Elvish woman I drew the other day. . . I took the picures with my phone so they're a little messed up ^^" Sorry about that! I put in some close-ups of the image so you could see the details and such.

    Here's a drawing I did of Masashi Kishimoto's character, Zabuza Momochi from the manga series Naruto. I have a really hard time with abs and arm muscles and such, so any tips on those would be great!

    Sketch of a woman. Not much else to say other than I messed up the eyes big time. I'm fairly happy with everything else though.

    When it comes to muscles, use references, but also keep some muscle anatomy references handy so that you know what you're looking at and where they attach. Good stuff so far!

    My sketchbook. I'm always looking for critique, so please stop by

    Thanks etui! I searched around for some references last night and after studying for a bit, I went a drew this.

    I used a photo of a friend as a reference for the posture (especially the hands) but the muscles I added in. He was holding a guitar in the photo, but I left that out since I wanted to focus on the figure for now.
    I tried to remember where I had seen the muscles attach in the references, since they were online and I didn't print them off. My drawing probably would have turned out a little better, but oh well. I used MS paint to clean up all the funny shadows my scanner put in but decided to leave the hand alone because I didn't wanna mess it up and be siiting here frustrated for an hour.

    Painted the sketch of my friend in photoshop after being inspired by etui's sketchbook to start working with color. It ws the first time I'd ever painted anything in photshop, so I'm relatively happy with it. I actually had a lot of fun, surprisingly. I'd always thought digital painting would be diabolical since I can't use real paints. Guess that's what I get for thinking

    Hi there!

    I agree about the anatomy comment - do use reference, and try to really study it. Doing very well so far though. Would be great to see you relying less on lines and more on tone. For example, in the last post - the painting is very green, with vague smudges showing anatomy. Where did the linework observation disappear to? Try using darker and lighter green to define shape.

    Best wishes,

    Ana

    Thanks for the advice Jansi! After reading your comment I went back and tried to fix the painting. Here's what I ended up with:

    Is this any better? I know I still have lots to study- but every bit of critique helps

    Both references were from the same book, Strength Training Anatomy, 2nd Edition. I worte the artist's name on the torso reference (not quite sure how to pronounce it, though).

    So I've done a couple of studies, one on the face and the other on the neck. I studied from the 1965 Edition of Richard G. Hatton's book, Figure Drawing. Apparently he was one of the most authoritative artists of his time when the book was first published (1904). So enough of me babbling, here's what I did:

    I know the girl's nose is waaay too long (facepalm), so please don't rag on me about that. I also added the facial hair to make the guy more masculine, since he seems to be wearing make-up. ^^

    . . . . Nothing to say bout this one other than that I spilled tea on it. . .

    Clumsy artist + beverage + the action of drinking = Ooops!!!

    Another study from Hatton, this time a male and female figure. My apologize for the lack of feet, for my sketchbook wasn't tall enough for the figures (at least not how I had placed them). Constructive C&C still welcome!!!

    Back again, after a long break of procrastination *laughs nervously*. Thanks to those who've browsed through my sketchbook so far. I appreciate it. ^^ Today I just have some hand references and a few other random things.

    Apologies for the funny shadows, that particular sketchbook is a lot bigger than our scanner and our scanner is kinda special.

    Here are two female sketches I did from a reference book I bought called Body Parts. The 'arts' part was a different color than the rest of the title, denoting the book was for art purposes. I found it rather clever.

    This face is loosely based off of a child's face I saw while in Mackinac City, MI. For those of you who don't know where that is, it's right here:

    Well, in that general area, anyway.

    I'm glad to see you do some anatomy studies and figure gestures. I like them! They will really help you improve! Just keep doing them and you'll see improvements in no-time
