    Jake's Sketchbook of.... something.

    Hello Conceptart.org.

    Always wanted to open up a sketchbook in order to get better, so I did. Let's hope I do this right! Also NSFW tag for the nudity that will surely come.

    A bag and my shoe that I sketched during a hospital trip, and some Loomis studies.

    Update, I started reading Andrew Loomis' "Figure drawing for all it's worth," and intend on working through the entire book. Also looking for a life drawing sessions, and to get Vilppu's book.

    Haven't been on the ball as of late. Some more studies, mainly attempts at getting the next stage of the manakin's arms and legs right.

    hey hey! welcome dude!
    nice studies! you've inspired me to do those...Loomis? studies, right?
    yeah i never did these exactly. but this is an excellent way to start off.
    keep in mind the width of the pelvis/lower body block. as compared to the width of the rib cage/upper body block.
    are they the same width? slightly different?, observe it for yourself, pretty sure in a bridgman book the width of the middle/rib cage block-in is the
    same width of the outermost pelvis part, so you can draw lines straight down.

    let's see some more studies, some close-ups of the head or hands or upper body/lower body.
    and then some application!

    EDIT*:
    basically here: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1270400477

    on the left side (sorry only image i could find, but good enough) there are Bridgman's moveable masses. and I looked at this aspect of Bridgman's book recently, I find for ME it is easy to understand, maybe not for you, you'll hear a lot of different opinions on Bridgman and Loomis and these other key authors, and it's just really what YOU like best.

    So the moveable masses are the head block, rib-cage block and pelvis block. you can see there on the left that, the outermost pelvis is as wide as the outer most rib cage part. so when doing block ins, you can make them the same width, hope this helps.

    You can see this in his ACTUAL book here: http://books.google.com/books?id=Jt3...page&q&f=false

    on page 23

    Whoo! First comment!

    Thank you for the info regarding the pelvis and Bridgeman, gives me another source to learn from and a fault has been uncovered for me to fix.

    I've had a quick look at two of my drawings I did the other day, using the Bridgeman's boxes and proceeded to reproduce that again with some new drawings. As far further progression works, the plan is to do some more dynamic poses using these same models, after which I'll begin to expand on them by adding bulk in the form of simplified muscle. After is detailed studies of the skeleton and muscle groups, though thinking upon that perhaps I should do those two things side by side?

    Good start here! when doing those poses make sure the keep in mind the proportions of the legs arms. They are a little off in some of them!

    And just keep at it!

    Please, excuse me for the possible errors in my English.

    I didn't think much of what I did was worth showing today, but here's one such sketch to give people an idea what I meant by bulk.
