    Dan Tang's Sketchbook

    I've reached a point in my life where I want dedicate more time to draw as I'm passionate about drawing! Now I want to see what I can really accomplish. I've started this sketchbook and will try to show all drawings/paintings, I welcome your comments and would really appreciate any constructive feedback. So let's begin!

    So a little about me: I've drawn figures and products casually since 2009. As I was studying product design I became accustomed to basic perspective, and understanding of forms in 3D but didn't take this further. Then I attended some life drawing classes. I'm inspired by Syd Mead, Feng Zhu, Scott Robertson, films, novels, and my younger brother Matt. His work is great have seen his artwork come a long way. You can check out his work here http://www.getyourtangout.blogspot.co.uk/

    I like that you use construction lines to sketch out poses. Keep it up.

    Thanks Chrysley. I'm always learning to improve my art so during the period when I drew those I used construction lines.. still using them for perspective gah.. difficult topic, but challenging! And I like that.

    Earlier this week I sketched two guys in fashion and uniforms, dating back to the 1940s as a little project.
    The first is an American born oriental guy in 1940s US Police Uniform. The second is an obese fella in a waistcoat and full suit.

    Good so far. One think I would like to see you do is take a mirror, a pencil, and some paper. Draw yourself as detailed as possible. Or draw someone else. Or drawing something with a lot going on. Just try and render it as best as possible.

    From what I've seen so far you just need more studies. So study study study. I know its lame. Also don't forget to draw things that you like. If you draw things you don't care for all the time you'll get sick of drawing!

    Today I was travelling back from Manchester so I decided to do some environment comps, imagining places I've been before and trying to put them onto paper. I did a quick gesture of a lady sitting opposite me, then doodled heads, man they look strange. More practice needed!

    I'm gonna 2nd picking up the Loomis figure drawing book if possible. Also try to avoid darkening in your people. Like in the environments or the mans legs. Something about it just throws its all of. Possibly considering a more gestured drawing or possible just go a few shades lighter.

    Cheers Chrysley and SigonWulf - I've going through Loomis' Figure drawing book now he's so skilled and I can relate to him, as many others probs can too.
    @SigonWulf Yeah it doesn't look great, but I was just playing around =P I tried to break up the jacket and trousers.
