    Bosque - Sketchbook

    Hey everyone,
    I’m new to CA. My desire to learn is what brings me here.


    I'm 18, just recently graduated high school and just started art school. I’ve only really been drawing for about a year but, I want to learn more, lots more!

    Some new still life drawings I was working. I'm pretty happy with the progress I'm making, but I have to learn more!

    Ill be posting a self portrait in a couple of days hopefully.

    Heres some more stuff, I would really appreciate some critique.

    We have been covering facial anatomy in observational drawing, so ill be uploading more of that soon.

    This was my first time rendering glass, and im pretty awful at it.
    All that means is that I have to study more!

    Hey there! I would say always keep in mind of your perspective as that seems to be a problem I see with your drawings. If you spend some time getting that right,your drawings will look much more believable. And also,attempt to render an object according to it's contour lines.

    Thanks Jbrown, Ill be posting some anatomy studies tomorrow when I get a chance to use the scanner at school!

    Nishan- Perspective isn't really my strong point, but Ive been working on it. Ill work on some perspective studies. What do you mean by rendering according to contour lines?
    Thanks!

    This was an exercise my instructor had us carry out in order to track our progress. It's the exact same model, the only difference is she doesn't have her glasses. They were done about 4 weeks apart from each other.





    And an octopus!

    Thanks! My instructor asked that we draw a surreal self portrait, so I drew an octopus.

    A work in progress. This is my second day working on this piece. Im trying really hard to improve so a critique would be greatly appreciated. Im trying to focus a little bit more on my painting skills too.
    Thanks guys!

    Learn how to draw ellipses in perspective.
    It's difficult, but practice makes perfect.
    You can draw a box around the circle if that helps.
    The minor axis of the ellipse will go to the vanishing point.

    The last one is a big improvement,
    but try to imagine the skull as a sphere. The light on top of the head is not quite correct.
    Oh, and I think it would be cool to add a sub-surface scattering effect to the ears.

    Ultimately, besides studying anatomy to the extreme, remember that value plays a huge part in making your stuff believable.

    Make sure you keep the darks dark and the lights light.

    Also: www.posemaniacs.com and www.hel-looks.com as well as looking at Loomis, Bridgeman and Villipu studies all around would benefit you greatly.

    Good luck and I'll be watching!
