    homiedude180's sketchbook!

    Well drawing's always been just a hobby and probably still will be, but I've wanted to get better at it regardless. So I'm going to go ahead and do something about it!
    I've browsed the sketchbooks in this forum for almost a year now and have always been inspired by the progress people make here and the support/advice they get and was hoping I could finally do the same. I'm a little busy with school and work, but will try and squeeze in as much drawing and sketching as I can.

    It's a little late now, so I drew part of a figure drawing on mypaint from a Joseph Sheppard book I have.
    I will upload more tomorrow!

    Looks promising, just try to keep the scans and stuff in a view- and load-able size.

    @Xamllew: Are you using mypaint 1.0? I just use the charcoal tool.

    Another drawing from Sheppard's book.

    Ok, so this one is in a traditional medium. It's charcoal and black conte on a large sketchpad. It's based on a photograph of "Jose Orozco".

    Try polishing up some of those digital pieces. They look good, but they could look great.

    I want to work on environments so I've been sketching some, from references, in a quick a dirty manner to focus on colors and depth of field. (Artrage)

    Quick sketch on Krita. Trying not to use the color picker. It's a lot harder than I thought.

    I didn't get to finish it because it's getting late and I've got work in a few hours, but it's a sketch done on Krita.

    Tried environment thumbnails using my imagination. It's evident I've got a LONG way to go. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Did a value study on Krita from a movie still. Also sketched some things on my job's desk since it was a slow day.

    VERY quick sketches, didn't time them, though. I'm also really liking Krita.

    I REALLY suck at drawing hands so I practiced some. I plan on doing a lot more soon.

    I bought and watched Feng Zhu's Environment techniques video today, and it was really informative. It's really late, though, so I only got to make three quick thumbnails. Hopefully I'll fill this up tomorrow.

    This is a little discouraging, but I can only get better, right?

    You're doing quite well, especially your environments, which have a good range of values and arrangments that guide the eye through the piece. When looking at the figures you construct from memory, I don't see the underlying armature, and that may be why the anatomy seems off.

    @tudore: Thanks for the critique! I really am trying to do more studies so that applying the fundamentals becomes more of a priority.

    Just a head from imagination and a ~1 hour study.

    Edit: Did a couple of 1 minute gestures (?) before bed.

    Well, today I did a couple of gestures, drew some things on my desk, and then a master study on krita for about 3 hours on one layer.
