    Memoirs of a sktechbook

    First of all: Hi

    After lurking this forum for quite a while I realized that the only way to overcome my social anxiety was to just to jump in at the the deep end.

    But I also want to get better and improve, so crits and feedback ect are more than welcomed And hopefully I can give some feedback and crits myself and join conversations here pretty soon


    And here ya go with some studies (ignore the first thing ):

    Hey, this stuff's looking pretty good right now, it's nice to see the attention being paid to the studies. What resources are you studying from? If you have a spare moment, look into Sheppard's Anatomy for the Artist - it's pretty comprehensive and may help you fill in a few holes with your anatomy.

    Otherwise, it looks good so far - nice to see you getting into it with the colours!

    You're making great strides, but I would suggest making faces a bit softer and stuff like clothes a bit rougher! Keep improving, mate!

    I like your skin textures! That is definitely what I'll look at when doing my next portrait.

    @ATP: Thank you! I work a lot with Andrew Loomis´s books, Michael Hampton- Figure Drawing - Design and Invention and I try to do as many gesture drawings and anatomy studies as possible with sites like posemaniacs.com and ArtsyPoses. And I´ll try to get my hands on that book that you suggested asap
    @Randomeister: I´ll def. do that, thank you for the tip!
    @latus: Thank you! I could give you the links to some great tutorials that taught me a lot about skin texture?

    Thank you guys for dropping by

    -------

    2 last updates for today, first is a portrait study and the other one was a just for fun project:

    Hard to give criticism when I can't correct my own mistakes!My preferred though is the one from Prometheus - I guess it's a copy?

    The way you render the beard is fantastic!

    Oh man, thank you! By copy you mean if I had a reference pic? If so, yeah I had a reference picture from a trailer for that one

    I love painting beards, that´s why all men in my pics have beards...always

    Update time

    A few older pieces:

    Something something that was once an anatomy study but I got hit with a funny idea while shading it, and in the end it became this:
    Memoirs of a sktechbook

    And 2 older portrait studies:
    Memoirs of a sktechbook
    Memoirs of a sktechbook

    A bit newer stuff:

    My interpretation of an awesome fashion photo I saw on tumblr:
    Memoirs of a sktechbook


    And something I did to practice perspective, composition and textures, and everything else that came to mind mind while painting: (because I suck at stuff like composition and perspective)

    30 seconds warm-up gesture drawings, instead of less messy they got more messy :/ Welp, one day...
