    ATP's sketchbook (NSFW) - Because it doesn't get any worse than this.

    Hello! Figured I'd pull my head out of the sand, swallow my pride and get my stuff assessed against some proper standards.

    Feel free to tear down whatever you wish, however you want to. It's all yours!






    More will come as I recover them. My computer borked itself earlier this year.

    Hey, comeon, ivse seen worse
    in fact if you are just starting out these are already quite good, forms and shadows need to be worked on harder, but its just the matter of practice! Keep it up!^^

    Hehe, cheers!

    The sad fact is that I've been doing this for two years - just as a hobby mind you, my university nonsense takes priority, unfortunately. I've done a few commissions this year, though, so that's something I'm happy with! Anyway, I'm here to get better, and we're going to do just that.

    Also, art.

    My computer's lagging a little. Here's a study of a bust from my local library, that's all for tonight seeing as things are getting choppy on my end.

    I see some good observation of light and dark going on. But the anatomy / construction of the figure probably needs some work.

    2 things:
    1) Try to study simple white geo shapes under a desk lamp. Be as accurate as you can about everything: linework, angles, values, cast shadow etc. Drawing these correctly takes allot of practise (weeks / months) but it's definately worth it. Scott Robertson has 3 awesome DvDs about this: the "How to Render Matte Surfaces" series.

    2) Then use the knowlegde of these basic shapes to construct figures. Read Michael Hampton, Loomis or Bridgeman etc. All are good, but Michael Hampton's "Figure drawing: Design and invention" takes the cake, for me at least. Use their construction / anatomy theory to draw figures from live, photo ref and imagination.

    Good luck and keep up the good work.

    Kapri, it's very serendipitous that you say that, seeing as I have those videos to watch soon. I shall have to see what Mr. Robertson has to teach me.

    Thank you!

    Hand studies! Now that exams have finally finished, I can get back to what's important - cranking out drawings and making passes at cocktail waitresses.

    Hey ATP nice stuff You can use a figure like this to simplify human body and get best perspective Buy yourself one Capture the basic gesture by stick figure, get into geometry shape for better feeling of "3D", slightly erase the line and adding more muscles and flesh. I believe that the steps, right Finally I got my hands on proper drawing books Oh, and work on cross-hatching. Build up layers of crosshatch and it will slowly change darker as well as deeper. By that, you can get subtle and more delicate gradient, I think

    Well, I'm back. But I'm not entirely out of practice! just had to turn my artistic flair to more sinister purposes (Science...) so even though I got to do lots of observation of bones and muscles and people that had been sawn in half, I didn't get much other work done, sadly. But hey, always the weekend for catching up!




    Science! Boo, hiss..






    And lastly, a head study. Yes, that time in which I take a lovely portrait of a lovely girl and turn it into some Lovecraftian abortion. Enjoy!



    And lastly, a wheelchair. Well, not a wheelchair. It's got feet. So It's a feetchair.

    Well, here's some from today. Trying to work more on form recently, focusing less on making purdy drawings and more on understanding what's actually going on under the skin.

    I can see significant improvements the drawing looks more nature
    The shading still too blurry or too hard. I mean, due to the different anatomy structure of different parts of the body, the tones should vary more. Work hard with the shading and use smaller crosshatch to refine details of muscle
    That's all for today.

    I'm not dead!

    SO! After a few months away, I have returned! Have no fear, for I have used my absence well, repeatedly beating my head against the leaden monolith that is Art and its mastery!

    Haha, now that I've gotten that out of the way, I'm back. I actually have a lot of artwork saved up, and I'll upload it gradually as I unearth it, and as I make more. Without any more filibustering, here are today's sketches.

    Cheers everyone!

    Keep the studies up! I like the blocky feeling your drawings give, good job.

    Nonsense - a stylised face study and some figure drawing because it's nice to keep up with that kind of thing.
