Thread: KiBa´s Sketchbook
January 18th, 2012 #1
I´m suffering a horrible disease... it´s called a motivational slump!
Yeah, you heared right, folks. Devastating, isn´t it?
A sketchbook here will be hopefully my cure.
My aim is to get back the routine, I had a few years ago and to improve of course, as much as possible.
Let´s get productive!

I like especially these gnome like fella in gray scales Fantastic works overall!
January 19th, 2012 #11
that´s a warm welcome, I would say ;D
thanks guys, very much appreciated! If that´s not motivating, I don´t know what is
Want to focus more on studies in the future. I never made any, so I realise how inefficient I was.
Color is still my biggest weakness (and environments and so forth^^). My color management isn´t very precise, it is often only a lucky guess. That needs to be changed.
15-25min thumbs, nuff said

Again a bunch of color study thumbs, characters and a few scribbles.
I started to take a look at Loomis for the purpose of learning to simplify form. My first heads look really crappy, but I´m certain that will change with a bit of practise. It´s just difficult for me at the moment to draw objects from different perspectives, that´s why all my characters are static for example.
So much to do

I absolutely love the style of your characters Keep it coming!

ColeBot612 hey, thanks man
in2eternity glad, you dropped by The only thing I´m comfortable with, are characters at the moment^^
Sebastian jep, läuft einwandfrei. Danke dir!
I made a little compilation of different faces, but somehow they often tend to be very similar. Took more time than expected, but it was a lot of fun. While doing these, I came to the realization that sadly I can draw better with my tablet than with pencil

I also have a problem with sameface characters. I found this pdf to be really cool, though I haven't really applied it to any of my artwork yet, but you might find it helpful in designing more unique faces! It's an interesting new way of doing it I suppose.
Loomis is fantastic for studying how the head is put together but his teachings do kind of lead to everyone looking the same unless you really push it.

I will definitely give it a read. Thanks!
Of course you can always just exaggerate and make huge noses, strange head forms etc., but then in gets comic like very fast. I want to find a balance in that. It all comes down to practise and observation.
here´s some basic stuff... skulls
(the rendered ones of course with ref)

Silence! I kill you! Haha, nice studies, dude.

Hey, nice work, especial the environment studies. One suggestion, concentrate on the darker tones and use the lighter areas/highlights sparingly, small hints of highlighted areas are better at conveying reality and a sense of scale.
Keep it up!

slowly but surely, i will (hopefully) thank you
oho, danke dir!
that´s amazing german right there!
"skull" = "der Schädel"
Thanks, glad you like it^^
Did the "GetHim" skull also remind you of achmed? ;D hehe, thanks
yeah, I know what you mean. I sometimes push the bright values like a madman, especially in the sky. Will work on it, thanks for the comment!
you got me, right there :_( my drawing sucks bigtime. Neglected the pencil quite a long time and that´s the result, but this will be fixed!
hey zerstörer! (wenn scho, denn scho )

I was thinking about studies quite a bit. As I already mentioned, I am totally not used to doing those, never bothered to do any. Back then, I was so proud of myself, for being able to draw everything from imagination and judged others for using reference. They are just copying images, right, right? WRONG
Of course I changed my mind and just recently I started doing studies, thanks to university buddies.
Still I´m not sure how to approach studies and will hopefully get something out of it soon. Sometimes it just ends with the feeling of achieving nothing and making a copy. Should I detail it out like crazy? What for? Or maybe just a rough definition of values and form?
Yada, Yada, Yada... I can count the amount of studies I made on my hands and I´m already whining
My plan right now is learning the basics, focusing on human anatomy first -> character design
So don´t wonder why I´m only drawing silly skulls ;D
Quite a tiny update for today:_( Waiting for semester break!
Until next time!
