    Robodrey's steamy sketchbook

    It's about time I made one of these, all the cool kids already had one back in 2005.

    I'm here looking for improvement. And fun. And to meet great people. And to try and leech of their knowledge and wisdom. Yes that's right, I'm talking about you, thread viewer. Gimme a hand at improving and I'll do what I can to help back.

    ---

    Kay so here's some recent stuff, some life drawing + gestures starting about the end of May up to this week. The models are in chronological order, I think. The clamp-lamp study took about two hours earlier today, and the other digital painting must've taken a little less than 2 hours, that one was just for fun. Fun meaning boobs.

    Sorry about the poor quality of the life drawing pages, I tried to clean them up in ps, but I'll try to get a better lighting next time.

    Hey guys, thanks for passing by and taking the time to comment!

    @khalidmnet: Yes, done in photoshop

    @CarlSpringer: Thanks, I was pretty happy with it too! I usually go to life drawing on Wednesday nights so I should have a little more later this week.

    @lys: Thanks! That one was fun. Even after many months I'm still not sure what works best for me, so once in a while I try things like that. I'm looking for something not messy and easy to use to apply value to a drawing, since I'm always short on time to work on that. (The longest poses last 30 minutes and I'm a major slowpoke.) I never found markers I really liked


    ------------


    Cartman you fat little bastard. You fooled me, with your round shapes and flat colors, I thought you'd be a piece of cake to paint.

    And so what was meant to be a short practice had me struggling for nearly four hours last night to paint this thing in photoshop. (It's a plastic toy I got from my sister that says silly punchlines when you press the button on his back.)

    In a nutshell: I struggled, it still looks off, I don't know why.

    ...Or maybe it means I need to paint more plastic Cartmans. Herp derp.

    Hey Carl. Yeah I'm more at ease with digital painting, and I work faster. With real paint it takes me forever with very little result, though I'd like to work on that eventually.

    Here's some figure drawing from last night and a hand (mine) I did before starting. I'll need to work on hands more, I neglect them all the time during life drawing.

    I love the rendering on the life drawing pages, the one thats on row three, 2nd from the left is awesome. How did you do that? watercolours or something?

    The pencils are great too, the directional shading really brings out the planes on the figure I think, though perhaps more subtlety would be in order, like I can see you've put a lot more time in softly shading the face/hair and gone quite rough on the rest of the body.

    @CarlSpringer : Haha yeah saw that It's a difficult thing to draw.

    @A Faux : Aw thank you, that's a nice thing to say. I alway feel like I'm struggling with color though! Everything feels so much easier in grayscale.

    @Little-Maiden : Hey, thanks for the feedback! I used gray watercolor markers for that one (they have a soft rubbery tip). I had them laying around so I brought them to life drawing a couple of time... which kind of destroyed them.

    And thanks for pointing that out, I know I have a really hard time finishing my drawings within the allowed time so towards the end I rush things. I guess I'm a bit slow, but I'm not sure how to help that if not to keep doing more. I'll try to work on that when I go back next week, thanks again!

    A few more hands from last night.

    Hands! Yey! I really enjoy wokring on such things, they have sooo much to give!! You can do a lot with hands, you can train your observation skills, as well as some construction, movement, details, etc.
    From the ones you just posted I could say they are ok, but still there is something not convincing about them; they do not feel quite alive at all. Try to draw them not just copying its contour, but feeling how the flesh and bone conforms an entire mass. Hmm, don't know if I make my point there, is somewhat weird, the thing is that you try to show in the drawing not just how the hand looks but how the hand feels, that is, where is the pressure, were is it heavy, etc. Try to exaggerate those things and your hands, as well as all your figure drawings will come to life in no time!!

    Hey thanks for dropping by!

    Um yeah I use references. I'm not so pro to do gestures from memory yet! However I do both, some from life and most from sites like posemaniacs and lovecastle. Though most of the digital gestures I do are photo-refed.
