Hi Everyone! Long time lurker here. This is my first post and first sketchbook. I've been drawing on and off for quite some time, but now I've finally decided to go 100% on it.
I'm trying to go over the basics as well as anatomy, hope you can help me!
Updates always on the last page

Hey! well done for starting your SB
like HederaHiberna there is some very diverse stuff on here...are the pencil sketches older than the digital stuff? some of the digital sketches show a much better grasp on value and form than the pencil ones...maybe its because you have better control of the settings of the digital brushes I dont know...but it looks good..I will point out that in your perspetive studies...keep in mind that 2 point persppective vanishing points will almost always (if not always...and someone can clarify it) be outside the image borders...when dealing with right angles...in fact by spacing them out, the one picture of the cube from below looks a lot better than the one of say...the cube receiving the shadow from the plane.
anyhow, it's great that you're putting all this work in, pencil to paper and studying your anatomy..you'll be sure to improve much that way!
keep it up!
Hey Claudio, thanks for stopping by!
The ships are from about 1 week before I started this SB. Everything else is from the day/s it was posted.
Thanks for the tip on perspective. I noticed on my enviro sketches above that almost all of them have the a vanishing point inside the image, which is not always the case. I got bored with perspective after a while, but I'll definatively get back to it
Just keep working, and do some face studies well you already are with the noses and stuff. But just watch your proportions and placement of the features in your portraits. Otherise good job keep it up.
