    From Epic Fail to not so fail

    This is just a sketchbook thread for my practice works and studies and whatever else I choose to put in here. I hope to one day become a concept artist and work for films and video games. I have been doodling since seventh grade on whatever I feel like drawing, but now as a soon to be sophmore, I am actually trying to study anatomy, perspective, composition, and other art essentials. For the past 2 weeks now, I have been studying anatomy with the help of Loomis and Hampton books. I hope to study perspective soon enough.

    I'm 16 right now and it's really interesting how so many young people on this site are pursuing and studying art!

    As for critiques-They are more then welcome and are insisted. I would really appreciate that

    BTW: The attachment here is updated every once in awhile for the thumbnail picture

    I'd love to leave concrit, but these images are just too messy for me to know what's going on. Please post more!

    Hmm yes they are pretty messy and rushed. I guess I should take it slow and draw from life and such before I try to make too complicated environments.

    Well I drew some thumbnails for waterfall scenery in Photoshop. They're still a bit messy though. I used references since the only waterfalls I've seen are from films.

    More gesture drawings, but this time from imagination
    There are some lines in the background cause I used scratch paper for this.

    The gestures look pleasing and flowing to my eye, and my eye would like to see more.
    How old are you, if I may ask?

    Nice gestures. There's a carefreeness with your lines that is nice to see. Keep practicing

    Get out and exercise, it helps the youth to remain in the bones!
    The unlocked potential in you seems astounding, do you have any non-sketchy works done to show off?

    Vyliss- thank you for the comment and advice! I'll make sure to keep practicing, and I hope you keep up the good work also. Your paintings on the body are real nice and I hope to see more environment paintings also from you!
    Kerah - Now that I think of it, I haven't done any non-sketchy work or any finished work for a long time since I've been trying to learn anatomy (also because I don't do much drawing during the school year) before getting into creating finished art work so most of my drawings are just from studies haha. But now I kind of want to create a drawing that's non-sketchy, thanks man for the encouragement. And yeah, got to exercise to stay fit-maybe do some push-ups or something.

    More gestures

    Did some imaginary poses to practice with skeleton structure today. Nothing interesting really. Hope to post something different soon.

    Trying to add volume to my figures. I used references with these sketches and tried to exaggerate a bit.

    One more page of figures for today from observation.Experimenting with building the figure with just geometric shapes and connecting them. Not so good right now, but hopefully it'll get better in the future. Up next - I'm going to work on the skull for something different.

    Gestures for practice I guess. And seriously struggling with drawing the figure with shapes and creating volume and not having the figure look boring and awkward.Like, Figure 7 looks a bit stiff to me. Also figure 12 was a pain in the butt to draw.

    Some of these were drawn from nude models and some were drawn from pose maniacs cause drawing nude people is just awkward when my mom is up.

    Eyes.

    The other page is suppose to be self portraits, but that don't really look like me. The one that looks most like me is the bottom one and the second one that looks most like me is the upper right one.

    Some of those ears are looking quite good.

    Keep at it! To get your faces a bit more solid, you need to place the center lines ( vertical and horizontal ) a bit more accurately.

    To do that I recommend doing some vilppu blobs, then draw lines along the surface of the blob. You have to develop the ability to feel the form of the blob under your pencil. It's tough, but it will come.

    Vilppu blobs look like this:
    From Epic Fail to not so fail

    Love the stuff, especially your gestures. They're very fluid and dynamic and I hope you can bring that over when you move onto full-fledged figure drawing.
    Your faces are developing quickly too!

    kdiegert - Hey thanks! I took your advice and did some blob things(attached below), but since its late I didn't do many of them. I will most likely do some more later though.
    cannibalcarnivale Thank you very much kind sir.
    (Before the blobs) I stayed up to do more gestures from observation. They are so addicting to draw haha.

    again thanks kdiegert, Took your advice once more and drew some blobs as warm-ups. Then went ahead and got a hold of a vilpu book and did some of his exorcizes by trying to create figures with the blobs and circles. The first three pages of figures are from observation and the last page is from imagination.
