Thread: My Sketchbook
September 6th, 2011 #1
My SketchbookHeya. New here. Edited: Okay! Not really new anymore, but new in the essence in that I don't know my way around the site well
18 years old and a Veterinary Science student! Art is my hobby, it was a difficult choice between art and the art of science...
UPDATE: Well. I'm 19 now! I dropped out 1/2 way into my degree... science isn't for me. Something more creative is... I'm working on finding my niche. Its been a while.
UPDATE 2: Whelp, I'm 20 now... and studying CGI. Life is certainly an adventure!
EDIT: Decided to put on temp. folder thumbnail.

I have some art. Its stuff I've already done within the last month or so. It will be the only art I post from previous work, because the way I see it is that I'm here to improve... not share my old art. :]

Okay, as of to date I've been more on an animal-only drawer. Well, I've decided its time I attempted to tackle humans a bit more...
Have some sketches I did last night. :3 (and bear with me haha). The first upload was just scribbles and me referencing from my hand. Ignore the red... that was an experiment haha. The second is more me trying to get a 'feel' of drawing the basic flow of humans without getting bogged down with anatomical details, so excuse that. :]

Hey, mate! Glad to see you've started your sketchbook.
I didn't know you were 16, mate. Genuinly thought you were older (hope you take that as a compliment xD)
Anyways, you say humans aren't your usual subject matter so I thought I'd chuck you some links about how to draw faces.
It'd be good to do plenty of studies from life and photos in between your usual drawings, of faces AND full figures. I'm sure you do this already for the most part but you can never have too much.
Anyways, hope to see more soon. I'll be sure to check by often. Good luck!

Love your linework, wish I had that going on at 16. As is your grasp on colour. Keep at it, I'll be watchin'

Naidy: Haha thanks Sweet links! I'll take time to read them more thoroughly later on, they look like they're going to be very helpful. 8D Thank you very much. :]
Matthew: Thank you very much. =]

Nice start to the sketchbook. Any more for us?
September 22nd, 2011 #8
Heya! Sorry I haven't posted in so long...
Schools catching up with me, it being getting close to the end of the year and all...
Anywho! I've managed to spit out another piece of art for you guys:
March 10th, 2012 #9
I havent been on this in forever. D:
Haven't been doing much art-wise, however I do have a few more pieces I can share! (well two).
P.S Should probably update this. I'm 17 now. (:
Yeeeeeep. Thats it. (:

Whelp, this is what happens when the internet is down. Baha.
If anyone bothers to read this, I'm new here. Are we supposed to 'attach' the 'art' or can we just link it though the whole [ I M G ] [ / I M G ] thing?
March 11th, 2012 #11
Think attaching the art is the prefered option as that way it stays on the site even if you decide to delete it from the hosting site.
Oh and welcome, looking forward to seeing more of your stuff.
My Sketchbook Please have a lookie...

Just another update with a few more art pieces I've done since I last post. I really need to post more... and create art more. >.<
1. Quick sketch scribble.
2. A picture I started, then my tablet broke. Trying to get the hang of painting fur.
3. A drawing of a horse... for a friend. Yep, there are loads of anatomical mistakes. >.<

Wanting to get better at environments.

A few more things. Nothing serious, decided to draw a character per day from my all time ultimate favourite video game series: Legend of Zelda. (:
1st pic: Talon, from OoT. (just a scribble)
2nd pic: A quick pic for a friend, modelled in 3D Daz Studio and painted roughly over in photoshop.
3rd pic: A possible full pic of an armoured polar bear. WIP stage.

Day 2 of the challenge to draw a LoZ character daily.
Today its the Postman who appears in various games.
Sorry these arent quality drawings, or my style but its kicking me out of an art block!

Just another landscape/environmental scribble practise piece.
Anyone have any tips/crits with landscape/environment painting?
October 13th, 2012 #26
I dunno why, but concept arts 'Manage Attachments' area wasn't working for me, came up with a red error exclamation whenever I tried to upload this.
Just another landscape scribble/practise. Tried to get more colours into it, and use the lasso tool heaps.
As usual, tips, crits, advice... anything would be greatly appreciated.
I desaturated it after to look at the contrast and I think it looks nicer in B/W haha.
October 13th, 2012 #27
Well the best way to get better at landscapes is to actually go out and study landscapes. All the fantasy and crazy stuff comes a bit after the boring old grass and buildings. This however is difficult with digital unless you have a laptop of course.
October 28th, 2012 #28
JFierce: Thanks, I guess I should start going off photographs more! Good idea, yeah I don't have a laptop so sketching landscapes and referencing photos I will work on.
Heres a WIP of something I'm working on, so many lovely pencils now to figure out how to use them.
I plan on doing a watercolour BG for it.
November 18th, 2012 #29
Just some quick sketches/studies of animals =)
March 3rd, 2013 #30
More random art from over the past few months, the saws were spray painted.
I have more to upload, but its the wrong file size and I can't be bothered changing that right now, not a lot of people check this anyway.
