    Kapri's sketchbook

    Hey,

    I'm Kapri from Amsterdam and I'm and looking for crits. No need to be
    polite, I just want to get better as fast as possible.

    I've been serious about drawing for nearly 2 years now. Currently studying the
    figure. Have read some Bridgeman, Hampton and Speed. I'm also halfway
    through Vilppu's DvD's.

    I'll probably start playing with digital paint (color and environments) in the
    next few weeks. Reading both Gurney books now to prepare for that.

    Thx for stopping by, lets do this

    Edit: updated thumbnail. See last page for most recent work, ya'all know the drill.

    These are some recent life drawings of different models. Also included are a perspective and tonal study. The perspective one was made while watching Scott Robertsons DvD (he rocks my world).

    Crits more than welcome.

    These were done in Photoshop from photo ref on another screen. MMA fighters, nudes and dudes that play in hardcore bands (Trapped under ice usually dominates my playlist while I sketch).

    nice figure studies,
    in the last two cause you used lots of little lines, they lost fluidity and become chaotic

    while painting try to describe shadows not using lines like in drawing

    keep updates coming!

    cheers

    You have a nice grasp of gesture and structure. Start paying more attention to proportions and you'll see great improvement. Keep it up!

    Very cool figure studies. Great sense of motion and some cool perspectives in many of these. Although the torsos seem just a hair long on a couple, I kinda like it...almost seems stylized. Keep it up.

    Thanks for the crits dudes! I really appreciate it.

    takashmen: I see what you mean. I'll try to describe more with less lines.
    fantasyartist: yeah, I think I need to spend a little more time in the gesture and measuring stages. Taking time to lay down a good foundation for a more developed piece.
    Tomoran: Sharp eye, I didn't even notice that untill now. I also tend to leave too much space between the pelvis and rib cage.

    Will post more stuff next week after a small trip to the Dutch islands.

    First ones are Hampton studies I scanned from older sketchbooks. The dancer and down are from photo ref. Last one of the fighters is a digital WIP.

    Thank you for comming to my sketch book!! I can't really give you any useful info since I am not a bad ass at art
    I think I would suggest you take some classes for figure drawing or anatomy since you have already been able to draw with correct proportion and gesture. Now you may want to have more detail and structure practice so it would be beneficial if there is a teacher help you to see. Seeing should always come before drawing. I found myself improve faster with an instructor and that is something I never experienced!! Keep it up and Hope to get your critics in future!!

    QueenWorm: thx for the advice, I was actually planning on enrolling in a life drawing class with an instructor for this september. I did some life drawing for the first time last winter / spring, but that was with a group without an instructor.

    Lav: Thx!

    Here's an update on the digital fighers. One of my first tries ever at painting.

    Pelvis studies done in Photoshop. Some from Vilppu reference, some from imagination.

    The first one is awesome. I'm a big fan of gesture drawings. Your's are great.

    Be more patient, you are not patient enough. Observe light and shadow (the planes of the figure) more carefully. Do you know the O'Reilly method?
