    Blue Gun's 1st Sketchbook. Sketches Everyday, YEAH SUCKA!

    Hello everyone. Wanted to share my sketchbook, get critiques, hopefully meet some cool ass people who know what they're talking about. Been drawing for 12 years, off & on. Mostly off to you tell you the truth. I'm 27 & I want to actually get to a point to where I can make money doing this.

    Did some 30 sec. gesturing over at pixelovely. Had some female anatomy sketchs as well, but I guess since I'm new here I can't really post much. Got some Loomis books recently, which I've read a bit of. Will be posting some of my other sketches so everyone can more or less see where I'm at artist wise. Some Loomis afterward.

    Will be posting sketches daily.

    Here's the female anatomy study. It's a mix of yesterday's & today's work. I do comic fanart so my male anatomy isn't too bad.....at least I don't think. Let me know what you think when I post my pre-Loomis, gesture, anatomy study stuff.

    Hiya, love your sketches so far :]
    Your anatomy looks good too! Thats something I'm working on atm ^^;
    Only thing I can suggest is maybe to use a wider range of pencils in your pencil drawings, that way you can get more depth into your drawing through darker shading. I heard someone say once if you're going to shade make it black. Or at least some of it.

    Interesting things here! I agree with Syra about the shading. Another thing you could try is varying your line weight a little more. Other than that, keep practising! =]
    My Sketchbook - Advice would be very much appreciated! =]

    Thanks Syra. I have a Pro Art 18-Piece Sketch/Draw Pencil Set coming in a few days that I'm excited about. It'll have a range of pencils that I will be using for the first time ever.

    Yeah I admit my shading is just at the beginner's level. Thanks for your input Lumari, different weight lines would improve my work. That's a great suggestion, didn't think about it til now.

    I'll definately be practising. Going to get some drawing done later today, check back.

    I've been waking up late as hell lately so I haven't been on time posting. Sketches are getting done though. More Gestures, & female face sketches. Did about 7 hours & 10 minutes drawing today. Putting in work.

    Here's more gestures. Along with some hand studies. Model was my own. Did my own faces, studying Andrew Loomis - Fun WIth a Pencil. It's a good time.

    ErikR you're absolutely right about environments. I haven't done many backgrounds. Soon as I read up on some more Loomis & perspective I'll be getting right on that. Hope to be posting some new work tomorrow morning. Got lazy this week.

    My drawing hand is alot feeling better.

    Hey man,

    If your not doing it already, I would read Andrew Loomis' "Heads and hands" and read the plate about proportion and planes because it will really help you out when your drawing.

    Thanks Bowlsoup, I'll be doing that. So I guess I won't be doing daily sketches. With work being heavier than usual I'll be trying to do weekly sketches. Last week I managed to get some sketches drawn.

    Got some fanart WIP's that I started before my anatomy studies. So if they feel off a bit, it's because they are. Andrew Loomis' Fun With A Pencil - head studies is where I'm at right now.

    I copied 2 pages directly from Loomis as best I could. Guess which ones. 3 to 4 minute gestures. Still suck at females. Fanart WIPs lightly drawn. Second one is Mr. Freeze with no helmet. Flame suit on.
