    Naomi's Sketchbook

    EDIT: I'm now full-time into art!
    Currently in 3DSense, Singapore. Studying Digital Illustration and Design. - Jan 2014



    Just recently I decided to start drawing again. It's been 5 years since I last held a pencil, and at the beginning of August I decided to start again! As a kid I used to really love drawing, but when schoolwork started piling up, I guess I eventually lost that passion, though the interest was still there, I guess I never really took it seriously.

    Anyways... I've been lurking in the forums for about 2 weeks now, admiring the amazing things that go on here, and plucking up the courage to finally start posting up my sketchbook stuff!

    Would love all of your critiques and feedback on how I can get better. I think I've been slowly understanding bits and pieces over the past month, and i've been drawing everyday without fail. Hopefully getting better! >< *Fingers crossed, pencil in hand*

    My linework is pretty bad at the moment... im working on it... T.T

    P.S: Sorry for the bad quality images, my scanner died and I used my iPhone. Gonna go home and try to connect to my dad's fancy new scanner/printer, hopefully I get to post up better quality pics.

    Here goes...!

    Good luck! I'm also trying to do art every day, I'll root you on.

    Keep studying anatomy. I see you've got a Bridgeman book in there, good choice. I also suggest Drawing for All it's Worth by Loomis.

    I suggest you start doing gesture drawings, it'll help with building energy and loosening your figures. A book I particularly like is Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Hampton, it's a good one for gestures and building on them. (I love art books, so I always suggest some).

    Hands, Hands, Bone. O.O

    @Syre: Thanks! I'll check those books out and get started with gesture drawings.
    @Nianto: Yep! I'll try to post up some of my digital stuff. They're not very good yet though, so i'm always looking for ways to improve.

    I'll definitely keep studying Bridgman. I just absolutely love the way he does figures.

    Only managed to sketch one page yesterday.
    Our study group has an assignment on hands, and I spent 2 full hours staring at them, trying to understand the relation with the various joints in the fingers, and how the skin wraps around them. I used to have a phobia of hands, but I'm slowly starting to understand that they are just simple forms... (bendy forms? ) Popped out 4 hands, out of the 100 hands challenge. o.o

    The dude on the scooter was drawn yesterday morning while my mom and I were stuck at a traffic light.

    Sorry for the bad quality (again). Scanners don't seem to co-operate with me.. T.T *edit: Finally got me scanner working yo!*

    More Hands and... Gesture!

    @Cooper: Thank You!

    Sketched for 3 hours again! It's like 1 am now... Ahaha!

    Anyways, I started off with Gesture Drawing today. And I failed terribly...T.T (see below) Then, I remembered what Syre recommended as good material - the book by Michael Hampton? I read through the 1st Chapter, studied his gestures and started to understand how to go about doing gestures. So instead of scribbling like crazy, afraid that time would run out, I started off afresh - observing every image for about 5-10 seconds, understanding the pose, and interpreting it, before I drew.

    It looked SO MUCH BETTER when I drew gestures the 2nd time round! Please feel free to give me crits. I would love to improve.

    It's just SO MUCH FUN!

    Did another 7 hands for the study group challenge! I tried to be looser with my pencil (does that make sene? looser...) Yep!
    3 referenced from my own hand under my study light, and 3 more 5 min poses from The Drawing Script.
    I think I messed up the turtle one... Hahahah! Well, shows that i've got more things to learn! Really stoked.

    Itchy fingers at work...?

    @reborn: Thanks for stopping by! Yep! It's only been a month, and i'm already seeing alot of improvement as I flip through my physical sketchbook. Get's me all pumped up to know that I can get better

    So the only time I ever.. like EVER get to draw is after work. In the car, at home, after dinner... etc. Whenever I can, I try to sneak in a few digital ones at the office, since I have my tablet out anyways... o.o Usually I just do line work and cylinders and circles and cubes, but today I decided to try something new...

    It's really bad... >< I'm bad at digital painting at the moment. But i'm going to work hard to get better! Everything about that picture is currently really off...?

    Its my colleague by the way. She sits right beside me, and she's really sweet and hardworking... unlike me, the skiver.. ? Whole thing took me 20 mins?
    I definitely have alot of things to study when it comes to painting... whether its lighting, proper rendering... etc etc...

    Working hard... Will upload some more studies tonight.
