    SB SKETCHBOOK - Lets Do This

    Hello All,

    I have to LIBERATE myself first. I'm a 28years+ old software analyst who feel in love with her (concept art) about 9 months ago and recently started drawing. I am so overwhelmed with the amount of work required to be a great concept art its crazy but nothings come easy.

    I like character design (humans/robots), environments and aircrafts. And I have not even got to the digital side of painting yet. I prefer to start with the traditional medium first.

    From everything I have learned and come across to date I have broken my short/long term goals into:

    1. Fundamentals - Anatomy Studies (current stage)
    2. Perspectives (current stage)
    3. Colour/Theory/Rendering
    3.5 Digital Painting (wish i was here)
    4. Composition
    5. .... not sure what happens here...!


    These goals are not based on a 12 weekly to 6 months period or anything.. Long term means years and I am looking forward to the process.

    In the mean time here's my SKETCHBOOK.

    Please offer critique, advice and most of all encouragement.

    Thanks for looking.

    LETS DO THIS!

    Anatomy Studies (current stage)

    At the moment I am studying the anatomy so I firmly grasp the fundamentals before moving on the next phase.

    Looks good, I hope to see more from you since we are at about the same spot in the structure of man. Compare our work.

    I think, and this is just my thought right now, the forth step would be simplification, once you master it you change your process to fit you. I guess this would also be making a style.

    And please comment, even if you think it's terrible, tell me why . Or if you don't want to at least a "good work" would be motivating

    More Anatomy Sketches

    These sketches amongst others where over the last few days. I takes so long to finish one simple drawing and I don't like that.
    Here are images of what I have done so far.

    Don't be afraid to say it needs work cause I already know that.

    So please critique, advice and encourage.

    Nice work. I want to start on the femur tomorrow, so I gotta hurry up and get down the side view of the pelvis. Doesn't look to hard, draw 2 circles and a square then connect the lines.

    But yeah not sure if you intended to do this, but a lot of your body parts look out of proportion. Some look very long and thin and the scapula looks very wide. But I do like how you made some things look even more realistic than the simplified forms taught by Riven.

    Anyway good work so far, keep it up.

    EDIT: also, while yeah we are on the same boat with these taking forever, I think that when you actually get to drawing from bliss you will want to spend a lot of time on it to get it just right. Same thing here, you want to draw an accurate skeleton, gotta spend some time on it.
