    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!

    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.

    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!

    pretty nice! i really like the variance in color in the drawing of the eye in the first post, a variance which i feel your other drawings lack. also, try to up the contrast a bit when you work, don't just draw in the middle values add some blacks and whites! keep it up

    I see what you mean by contrast, Iddi. I took a look at your sketchbook and was completely blown away by your pencil drawings.
    Ill definitely keep contrast in mind today as I continue working on my paintings.
    Thanks for stopping by my book!

    This newest one is starting to see the correct use of the planes of the face, try doing a study of your own face using a planar study to see how the light falls upon your face. I think it will help you to gain insight into how to paint realistically.

    http://www.learning-to-see.co.uk/feeling-the-form <--- perhaps this link to loomis will help you?

    Good luck! And keep doing master studies in the process.

    Hey Mat! Thanks for stopping by again. I'm definitely gonna take planar study into consideration as I continue working on this master study and hopefully in a couple of days once all my projects are done, I'll move onto some self portraits.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Mat! Your words motivate me. I really appreciate you checking in here often.


    Today was a very productive day! I pretty much studied and ate goldfish crackers all day

    Im happy with the anatomy studies, considering a few weeks ago I was completely overwhelmed by the human body and now I don't approach it as apprehensively as I used to.The environment is a rehash of that crap desert thing I did. Trying to work on values, and keeping contrast consistent.

    The apple was amazingly fun, so I'll be posting one a day!
