    gravity-zero's sketchbook

    1-02-2013

    Deleted previous content but I'm picking this up again. Sorry for any inconvenience but honestly no one was following this anyway, to my knowledge, and only 4 people were kind enough to comment.

    Either way, I'm picking this up below so it counts as a new post and not just an edit.

    Hi gravity-zero!

    You seem to have a lot of control with your studies and the pencil, keep it up!
    I'd recomment doing some lighting studies with digital though, I think that might really help give your digital stuff some more depth.
    Keep posting!

    Puttin my sketchbook in my signature hurrrmmmm
    Puttin my portfolio tooharrumph

    Hi

    I really like the scythe wielder, especially the contrast between his robes and the scythe. I also think that your traditional sketches are very good, plus the perspective shot of sephiroth is epic.

    Your digital sketches feel a bit flat. It's almost as if there are strong spotlights surrounding the subjects. Try to vary the colours more, and change the hue of the shadows to match the colour of nearby objects. For example, in the picture of Snape, there is the strong neutral sunlight streaming through the window and deep, orangey light coming from the fire, yet he looks very uniformly lit.

    Overall, though, a really promising sketchbook. Good work!

    Alright then, let try this again!

    My name is Eleonor and I'm an art student from Portugal. I'm currently working on my thesis for my master's degree and finally picking the pieces of my art education (and lack of it....mostly lack of it, or rather, lack of good base knowledge of things I was suppose to know) and learning new things, drawing and painting, etc.

    I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn but I appreciate constructive criticism or just simple comments, so feel free!

    I won't bother with old work, I'm just going straight for recent stuff.

    Studies of different things.

    This (below) was a graphite sketch that I really wanted to paint digitally (although I couldn't at the time I drew it) but I had such a clear mental image of what I wanted that I put quite a bit of effort to get everything right. I'm proud of this, well, for now, in a month I might now like it. But it was a very fun adventure and I enjoyed it immensely!

    Well I haven't updated in a while so here's some of the recent stuff I've been doing :3

    Excuse any weird colours, I've been having some trouble with my screen..I tried to calibrate it but I think I only made it worse, at least I look at some old stuff and I get scared with some of the colours I see there..

    Anyway, I'm trying to improve my technique, learning the fundamentals (I'm constantly 'amazed' at how much I don't know..even if I have technically been studying art since I was 15...art education here is such a joke *sigh*), trying to come up with more original stuff. Fanart is all cool and stuff and I see it as a tool to improve but it's the original stuff that makes a difference so I have to keep that in mind.
    Basically I have a looooong way to go. and I'm surprisingly okay with that

    I noticed the picture of Kristen Stewart is a bit to life like and organic, she should be more zombie like for accuracy.

    jayson2157: Now now, don't be like that. Let the lady be XD


    I should be doing more important things but I started this and I'm actually liking it so...
    I'm actually a bit ahead of this stage and I have changed a number of things and added a background and a bit of 'story'. I'll show it when it's finished!

    Been a while! here's some stuff :3

    Some ugly traditional stuff, I was in a 'let's learn how to draw hair and guys' mood. Some random concepts fun, an original character and fanart in progress. I need to go back to studies!

    What the hell is going on with the images I wonder...?

    Anyway, decided to backpedal a bit and I will be doing more studies from now on. I tried to pay more attention to soft edges/hard edges. I still have along way to go but this was fun!

    And...click for bigger image..I suppose -.-"

    Heyo! you've got some nice studies here! All these concepts are pretty cool as well as the paintings. I would love to see some more figures rather than just portraits just so that you can make sure you learn how to draw everything also try to get some traditional sketches into the mix as that is always good!

    kamikazel33t: You're very correct! I usually paint/draw faces because it's something I love to do and it's difficult so I kinda focus on that but figure drawing is equally important. Occasionally I do some quick figure drawings but I do need to do it more often (as well as traditional sketches!). I'll probably move on to more complex things, figures included, on these studies I'm doing now Thank you very much for your words!

    Another study. Going to bed now because my eyes are almost closing.

    Darsyyyyyyy maaannn mékiéeee! Obrigada! It's wonderful to hear that :3


    Here's the finished study! Took a while because I was really busy these last couple of days but it was so cool to do!

    I plan on eventually moving on to quick studies, figure studies, environment studies, colour studies, etc etc etc but we'll see how it goes

    And for a slightly different thing, another study but bigger, with colour...and with water and mountains and stuff.

    Everything here is out of my comfort zone, except I suppose, the lady, but she has colour so it's still a bit out of my comfort zone, especially with this type of light. It sucks but hey, still learning!

    First of all I'm sorry about my absence! Like I said in my last post I was finishing my thesis and I'm glad to say that after so much hard work it's done and delivered! That means I'm free now

    I don't have many things yet because I've been so incredibly busy but I have some WIPs and I need to update this sketchbook - it's full of dust!

    heck yeah! look at all those studies! Now that's the way to do it. And great job with the selfportrait.
    Right things are happening in this sketchbook, keep it up and never give up.

    Ville_S: oh wow, thank you! For passing by and for the words of encouragement! Thank you very much


    I had a few days of vacations in the middle of nowhere but that basically meant I could draw all day! No digital stuff because I didn't have my computer but I haven't shown many traditional things here so it's all good.
    Sorry if the scans are not the best, the poor scanner kinda sucks.

    Playing around with an idea

    Two J. C. Leyendecker studies (I'm in love with his work)
    Didn't really finish this because I got lazy :X but on the other hand I really want to try to do a digital study of the sailor guy, I plan to redeem myself!
