    RickHowards Sketchbawk

    Hey!

    Taken me way too long to make a sketchbook, I think it'll really help motivate me and hopefully encourage me to work harder as I can see my progression and get some feedback from all you beautiful people

    fantastic studies man, keep at it. for your digital studies try using some custom brushes. They will save you a ton of time on things like splashes and textures

    So good to be back! Been ages since last post and I'm going to try and stay strict with myself and post once a week or something.

    Some various life drawings, finally found somewhere that does regular sessions.

    Thanks. I really dont know what to say about that subject really, I'm still suffering from that problem. Very quick gesture drawings are excellent for that, I'd recommend working them into your routine; you will pretty much see a day by day progression if you can do them every day. It will force you to narrow the information down to just a few lines that convey the movement.

    Also just draw from life whenever possible, life drawing classes are fantastic obviously because you have the nude model there in front of you for a set period of time. If you're waiting for a bus or having a coffee then these are also great times because, like the gestures you are limited on time and will have to make quick decisions.

    Just stick with it, I am not one to give advice because I'm still the guy that needs tons of help from others. Just keep drawing and analyse everything you see to get a better understanding.

    I like your studies but you need to be more aware of your negative spaces and plumb line. Use those to your advantage. (in regards to the wolf in riverbed paint study)

    fantastico studying bro! Quick crit.. if you draw for from your wrist.. STOP NOW. CONTINUE DRAWING SOLELY FROM YOUR SHOULDER THIS DAY FORTH. Even on small tiddly notepads etc, still try draw from your shoulder.. On large piece of paper etc, hold your pencil etc as if it was a wand.

    Also when your drawing, try to keep likes as minimal as possible, line should be long flowing and u shouldnt show repeated lines over the same area. Practice gestures, and work on consturction. Hamptons figure book helps loads!

    Keep up the work homie!

    What is the true value of a painting?, it is not it's price but the light it takes to create it

    Some recentish stuff, going to hopefully update more often. Still working which is lame but spending more time drawing. Want to thank Victor Quarsesma because he's really being pushing me lately, his work is killer. Photos are fucked up from the warping but whatever.
