    Tree's Will Cry...

    Update!!! Hey guys ive been working really hard to try and improve my drawing capabilities and am trying to decide on what schools to apply to in the los angeles area. I currently am going to apply for artcenter, LAAFA, Laguna, and otis. If you can give me any tips or information bout these schools or suggest another please send me a message or jus tpost it right here thank you!


    Hey Guy's Iv'e been meaning to create this sketchbook for the last couple of months but finally got to actually doing it today.

    About Me
    I am 17 currently and have decided within the past couple of months that i do not want to have a boring regular job that i hate even if it does pay big. That being said i have fallen into the path of wanting to become a VFX Artist that does compositing and works with fluids/particles or something within that area(3d animator or 3d modeler). I plan on accomplishing my dream by attending Gnomon: School of Visual Effects and working my ass off while im there. On the other hand I have to get accepted(obviously) in order to achieve that goal. So i have joined the conceptart community because i have seen more than enough talented and breathtaking artist on here and hope to become one of them. I will be posting as often as I can and am open for any suggestions and Critique that you may have to offer. I will also try to get a bit involved with the community by possibly joining some of the community groups. So thank you to everyone that took the time to read this and join me on my journey of progress to build a portfolio thats Gnomon material!

    About a month ago i visited Gnomon and met with a administrator and a couple of students and absolutely decided that there is no place right for me but that school. I was told to work on gesture and anatomy so i started studying some Burne Hogarth, Andrew Loomis, and Gnomon DvD's to get better. I also started doing 2min pixel lovely figure drawing every day (Minus a few i missed ) towards my newer figure drawings i have tried to make it in 1 min.

    I'm no wonder myself, but I'm very impressed with the visible progress you've made, particularly with your gestures. Keep at it and I'm sure you'll grow to be an amazing artist, the potential is definitely there hun

    some more figure drawing and some figure drawing from my girlfriends softball game a anatomy study from my gnomon DvD and Burne Hogarths wrinkles and drapery book i am studying it because i think getting a slight feel for the direction of the wrinkles will give me more of an idea of how movement works.

    welcome to CA, nice studies ... keep it up! be careful, you have to check everything if it gain you knowledge visually. Compare it on previous sketches. What I mean is you need to double check like for example your studies on proportion, you need to check it every time you are doing it on your drawing. from first up to the latest if you really get the hang of it.

    goodluck, I'll check again next time if I have extra time.

    Nice studies! I'm not really in a place to make comments, but if I had to suggest anything it would be narrow your focus. You'll get the most out of your studies if you spend your entire study session focusing on a single thing (like hands, or heads, or perspective) and if you apply those studies as quick as you can from your mind - no refs or anything. The biggest thing I'd work on If I was you would be to be really careful. Before you place each line (especially when working from your mind) draw it in your head once before adding it. Check the proportions in your head. Measure twice cut once if you will. Keep it up!

    just saw your update, listen to beefy it's really a good advice ... and I'm just want to add if you really want to be better I know your on your way ... compare your work from established artist at gnomon if you like (because that is your plan right?) you will certainly notice that you have a long way to go but it's not that you can't attain that. while doing so, I saw you have really tons of sketches of Human in different poses, why not do a sketch of five on each particular pose, don't use an eraser to clean because you need five. also don't copy what you have done from the first. just have your reference right there all the time (life or photo it doesn;t matter), I want to see it.

    milou- Thanks for the advise i definitely see foreshortening as one of my weaknesses and will definitely do a study for it soon.

    Monsieur-Beefy- Hey man thanks for stopping by you are definitely my inspiration on these forms right now! Thanks for the great advise as well drawing from my imagination is definitely something i need to work on

    nevermindjoker- Thanks man i would definitely agree beefy knows what he is talking about ha. and i know i definitely have no where id rather be than at Gnomon and im willing to work as hard as it will take! and alright I took your advise and think im going to start doing the 5 figure drawings every day after my 30 min of 60sec figures

    Alright a small update for everyone im almost at 500 60sec figure drawings! I did a small study on hands and then drew three from imagination trying to not look at my own hand as refrence was hard aha Then i did 5 60 sec figure drawings of the same figure and then a eyes study advise, tips, critique, ect. is greatly appreciated

    im glad youre drawing alot thats always a good start, keep in mind the back line that is what gives direction and flow to the figure even if youre compying the figure from a book still draw the back line so you can begin to understand the flow of the pose and also study more proportion and the natural guidelines of the body

    Lionheart is right - to really give your figures punch, pay attention to the line of action. Okay, I'm linking to a cartoon, but the same applies to realistic figures: Tree's Will Cry... the dotted line is the line where the figure is aligned and stretched out on. Generally speaking you can find the line of action in the spine. It can hold a lot of power and tension and is great for gestures. Next time you use pixelovely, find out what the spine is doing and base your figure around that. I have to say, wonderful progress!

    You asked me to take a look and here I am

    It's a good thing that you draw a lot (or seems to) but need to keep working on anatomy and by anatomy I don't mean drawing bodies and that's all, you need to learn the construction of the human body. It takes time, I'm far from being good at anatomy too lol

    I see a lot of gesture drawing and how others suggested you to give more dynamism, I agree, check this video by my friend Sycra, I found it very helpful

    These are some really nice studies that you've got, my only criticism is that your figures are a bit stiff. Other than that just keep at it really

    Can't wait to see more progress from you
