    The S chronicles [Updated DAILY(ish)]

    THIS STUFF IS OLD AND AWFUL! GO TO THE LAST PAGES TO FIND MY MOST RECENT STUFF!

    Hello guys and gals, my name is slash, and i want to be one of the cool kids. And to be a cool kid around here, you apparently need one of these dailies. Altough i am using the term "daily" in a very loose manner, since it will probably be a few days between updates. At best


    C&C are welcome, and i hope you will tear my sketches apart so that i might rise from the ashes as an evolved artist.

    They usually get messy. But thats the way, uhu uhu, i like it! No ref used since i`m training my "human-anatomy-from-memory" skill.

    Another mess. I tend to get a bit carried away. Still no ref used, exept the lower right girl.

    The S chronicles [Updated DAILY(ish)]
    Yet another mess. No ref used.

    Tear them apart!

    Man, you got issuuuuuues. Thanks for sharing them with us. If realistic tonality is one of your goals, then I'd say you need to work on your light sources. Pick one. I've no idea how common this is, but, I'm right handed, and tend to have the light coming from the top left corner of my pictures (unless the piece demands something other than that).

    Hear my mantra, it resounds throughout this forum.

    'pick a lightsource'

    'stick with it'

    'do not deviate'

    'become the light'

    Thanks for the reply. I know i need to work on my light sources, but realistic tonality isnt my primary goal in these sketches. I`m mostly practising human anatomy and exploring a few creative blowouts, and when i put on some shadows its just to define a little form and shape. And i think my mind is subconsciously tuned to 100% self illumination.

    As for the thing with right-handedness and top left light, when i DO apply lightning to my drawings, i always put it there too. In fact, it`s alot trickier for me to put the light anywhere else. It doesnt feel natural for some reason.

    *advice taken, chanting the mantra.*

    the thing is you "must" challange yourself, do NOT make another drawing with the shade coming from the left top corner.... push yourself from drawing stuff you never done before, and selfillumination doesnt exist in nature...sorry that im harsh but practise and push yourself to new boundries! it will only do you good !

    keep on posting !

    yeah, alright Yoda. Whatever you say. Why spend time practicing something, if it feels counter-intuitive? I'm only suggesting the top left hand corner idea as a way to get a feel for lighting in general, not as a golden rule.

    Theubermind: I quit taking my ritaline. It didn`t work the way it was supposed to. Actually i`ve quit taking ANY kind of amphetamine. It just doesn`t work AD/HD-power to the people!

    Hurricane: I know i MUST challenge myself. But as i said, realistic lightning isnt my primary goal at the moment. Anatomy is.But i will (if i remember ) put the lightning somewhere else in my next "lightning piece". Perhaps somewhere in the extreme opposite corner. Bottom right or something.

    -this is where I am supposed to post an update, but i am visiting my folks for the weekend, so i have no way of scanning my sketchbook. However, I AM drawing in it, so there will be a little dump monday..

    Thanks for the post bahamut. If you can`t find anything in particular does that mean that i have to improve EVERYTHING? :confused: dammit!

    Er.. Are our drawings similar? I`ll let someone else be the judge of that.

    More will come!

    No, not an update. But i DO have something for you. While searching for my name on google just for phun, i stumbled over my old elfwood page. It was fun to see them ol`pics again, nostalgia overdose. it seems like it has been ages since i saw them last. Even tho its probably not more than a couple of years. I never got too involved in the elfwood community, wich by the way have redesigned their site. I kinda lost interest in them around the same time i stumbled upon this page. COINCIDENCE sayeth I!

    Anyways, here it is, for those who are interested in how my style was back then..

    Well well well... i seem to be the most frequent poster in my own sketchbook. How sad. Give me some goddamn support guys!


    Ok, enough bs, on with the update! It`s rather large, since this weekend was kinda boring. Everyone was watching the european soccer CHIMPionship, and since i hate soccer, i was bored outta my skull.

    No refs used anywhere, exept my own hands and my brother.

    We start off with my bruddah watching soccer, a hilarious pose, wich i just had to draw. Dont mind the other scribbles. The bottom left one is "drawn" using a big bulky eraser on a scribbled area. bleh...
    The S chronicles [Updated DAILY(ish)]

    The next one started out with a tree. then i ventured onto the creation of a cute little demon-gargoyle-creature. Then i tried to make out the shapes of the head, worked fine until i started shadowing it. ugh! Had to draw a hellgrrrl to cheer me up. And of course some more shit that i don`t know why or how got there.
    The S chronicles [Updated DAILY(ish)]

    On this one i wanted to challenge myself, and use a ballpoint pen. I really dont like sketching with pens, cuz once you draw a line, you can`t undo it. Makes you think a bit more before you draw. I think it turned out ok.
    The S chronicles [Updated DAILY(ish)]

    I wanted to see if i still knew how to draw anime. (I was really into it when i was 16-17 years old.) As you can see, this attempt failed miserably. But i`m still gonna post the page, since I`m not gonna be one of those pricks that just post their best work.

    Bored and uninspired. But i managed to force some lines down at the paper. (I rule!)

    Inspiration returned later that day. Dunno what got into me. Demons, swords and chicks. A lethal combo.

    I ate pizza, and suddenly felt like drawing a dragon. (You see the connection? Me neither.) I`m satisfied with the head, but i HATE the wings and background.

    really like the womens anatomy! the dragons detail (the scales&shading) are also very nice! some arms on different drawings seem a bit long (on teh (<- !) swordsman especially), the legs on that one are definitely too short too! seem to have had a weak moment on that one...

    10 points to bahamut.

    The swordsman is a half-demon, so he doesn`t have to abide the laws of human anatomy. (yeah, lame excuse, i know...) I tend to draw the arms a bit long. It`s a bad habit that remains from learning the rules of anatomy wrong. For a long period of time i used these wrong rules and kinda got stuck there. I am trying my best, but sometimes i slip.

    Thanx for the reply. follow bahamuts example people! :chug:

    (got too drunk to draw last night, so no update for you today. sorry.)

    you seem to have a lot of ideas, i would say that in order to make these ideas more successful you need to study anatomy. this will help solidify your forms. try various lighting situations, they can add depth and emotion. i would try to stay away from "anime attempts" it is ok if anime is an influence but there are enough anime artists out there. it is so simple to do, when you find yourself getting better you will be able to draw anime if you must/choose too. keep workin on the paintings, the only way to get better is to do it a lot. try working on you patience, i know i have had a real problem with spending enough time on certain ideas. go ahead and push a design is will help you build your patience for those longer sessions of drawing. hope that helps a little.

    Thanx for the reply. You are right, i need to study anatomy, and i AM.. I am not really into anime anymore, i was just bored, and wanted to see if i still had it in me. (apparently not ) You are dead on when it comes to my patience. I can draw for hours continiously, just not on the same drawing! I get bored with drawings too fast. But to my defence, i HAVE improved, when i was 16 i had a five second attention span.


    Thanx again for the input!

    glad to hear you're studying anatomy. sometimes it's not the most fun thing, but when you hear someone like metalwinds say you can't do enough studies it makes you(me) think, cause homeboy can draw. yea, you've got some pretty imaginative ideas in here and in that head of yours. again, I feel that drawing from life and reference will help to improve the quality of your imagined creations (that's what I'm trying to do these days anyway). Some of my favorite drawings in here are from the page of gestures in your recent post that you didnt' seem to think too highly of. Funny, huh?
    I tend to be too dependent on lines to define form instead of value. You also seem to like line, w/ the strong outlines and such. Maybe more emphasis on value and less on line?
    Keep in mind, these are just my opinions. For me, the most important thing about drawing is to have fun. For most people it's probably more fun to increase their skill level, but I don't think it should be tedious or feel like work. Just keep at it if you enjoy doing it.

    You've got the right idea and that is to draw draw draw. You seem to have a lot of ideas floating around in your head, and that's good, but don't neglect to study the fundamentals too.

    Thanx for the replies guys.

    Elboy: You`re right. The important thing is to have phun and enjoy drawing.

    Insane: Coming from you i`ll take that as a compliment. OR a hint to seek professional help.

    Muttonhead: Why cant the fundamentals be as fun as everything else?



    AND NOW, THE UPDATE!!!

    I have been on vacation for a week now, and i have been too drunk, or too busy getting drunk to draw. But i have managed to doodle a little these last few days..

    Started a new sketchbook, this one is a A5 Winsor & Newton cartridge sketch pad. (Like you guys care ) I also bought a mechanical pencil, a PILOT shaker 0.5 (Like you care, again) and that is what i have been using for the following sketches. Took a while to get used to.

    Thanx for the reply dude.

    I realized to my horror that i havent got any boobies for you today, even tho i promised. I`m sorry, I`ll draw some later today.


    Done from ref. I had no eraser when drawing these two images, and that made me feel like... i was under water. without air. You get the idea.

    The keeper of the lower halls is great. You should work on this one.

    Good work on the flow of muscles and texture on some bodys. As far as I can see you have a knack for natural forms.

    I'm not sure if you have noticed it yourself, but it seems to me that you have progressed since your first post. It looks like you are sarting to play more with value, wich is good imo. Lines are 10x more difficult to nail correctly if you aren't familliar with the 3d shapes you are depicting. I like the last batch of ref. faces. Keep doing them and keep spending time on your values. Remember: you are not copying the placement of the light and dark spots, you are depicting the actual shapes. Always remember to ask the question 'WHY'!

    Have fun

    The new beat, the new beat, the new beat, the new beat.

    Finally got my lazy ass back to my place and scanned my sketchbook. Haven`t been home for a while, so here comes a pretty large dump. Boobies included!

    starting off with another mech attempt. Not really good at robots, but i try, cuz there are so much cool stuff around in that category.

    Your body anatomy is on the right track for
    improvent I think you need to work a bit more
    on your face features, drop the manga
    stylization for faces, and make some
    muscles and bones studies of the head.

    In the imagination department you are doing fine
    no critics there, your concepts are real fun to wach
    just keep studing anatomy dude see ya

    wow! what improvement! you seem to get better no matter how little people crit!!
    getting better in ALL areas, so just keep going and maybe ill have some USEFUL things to tell you.
    Maybe just one thing: youre normal anatomy is very comicy, youre domai sketches however are really realistic. You should try to USE some of the stuff you learn off ref, not just go back to them same old stuff once youre "on youre own"!!

    cheers, odt

    cool stuff mate, love the profile head in this picture: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...b18aug04_2.jpg

    i think you should take some time to study the actual features of the face seperatly.

    all digital stuff today.. I need to learn photoshop better, since its so much faster and CLEANER than any traditional medium.

    Gugg: mmmm! spinach!
    ODT: I don`t really need crits. cuz i read what crits other people get, then apply them to my work. Im a sponge soaking up all the great knowledge of this forum. (But i would still very much like for people to crit my shit.)
    Argh: you got it. Lets sharpen the blades and get it ON! (after td8 is done..)
    Davi: Will do. Thanks for the kind words.
    dCepT: Yeah man! i should have been there. But you know what its like to be a starving artist... I`ll be on the next one. I WILL! (did you guys have a good time btw?)



    Starting off with one of those five brush strokes a day-projects.

    The S chronicles [Updated DAILY(ish)]


    I don`t sketch directly into photoshop very often. here`s an attempt:

    Another attempt:

    Here`s one i did for the t-shirt challenge, but i was all like... fuck it..

    Bleh. Don`t like this one:

    And finally, my wip for the thunderdome 8 entry.

    The S chronicles [Updated DAILY(ish)]


    I would still very much like to recieve crits, since i am not that good at spotting my mistakes. please leave atleast a word each..

    This is from an oc-session with calle, nousefraname and me. The girl is shitty. The dude is supposed to be Erik Bye, a norwegian actor/famous person that recently passed away.

    I`ve been neglecting my sketchbook lately. In fact i dont think i`ve drawn traditionally since last year. Im beginning to understand the importance of drawing from reference, and i have used ref for all of these sketches. Some things still come from my imagination, i cant help it.

    I feel that i have improved a bit, i`ve tried to pay more heed to what the pros and knowhows have said around these boards, and i think its paying off. I still wish people would crit my sketches directly tho, since thats the best way of telling whats wrong, instead of adapting what they say about other peoples work and applying it to mine.

    So here they are, please leave a insightful comment or two..

    Ah! Studies! Yes! See, it's improving your work already! Try learning more about the structure of the figure. Do some bone studies and then figure out how the muscle lays over that. Think of it like your a sculptor. Just build up the drawings. Some of your anatomy and proportion on the stuff from your head is a bit iffy. This could really help you.

    One thing I like about this thread is that it really showcases your imagination. You can't learn how to be creative. It's something you just have. Keep developing your skills, bro. You're gonna get exactly where you want to be!

    really great sketchbook ! A shame no more people post in here !

    I agree that you have improved (several times) since you started posting. I mostly like the stuff where you're pushing the values (light - dark).
    Don't care too much for your cartoony stuff, but I think it's because it has more mistakes than the others. Cartoony to me, is simplified, which makes every line must be a right line. Some of the later stuff seems a mix between realistic and cartoony ? I'd say you're pulling those off very nicely !

    Post some more !!!

    Well, what do we have here...
    I happened to stumble upon this thread by chance, and the further I progressed down the thread, the deeper my suspicions became, that you, Slash, were in fact someone I knew from real life. Then I noticed the signature in one of your sketches, and my suspicions faded and were replaced by certainty.
    Det var liksom noe kjent der hele tiden...

    Kenneth fra klassen din på GK Formgiving på Kviltorp her, vet ikke om du husker meg. Sjekk ut "Charcoal Drawings"-tråden jeg har postet i Life drawing-forumet.
    Bra skisseblokk du har forresten, vurderer å starte en selv snart.

    HaHA! Selvfølgelig husker jeg deg! Verden er jammen liten! Velkommen til conceptart.org!

    Lets switch back to english so the paranoid conspiracy theorist admins dont come bashing down on us for speaking this communist spy language. I will check out your charchoal pieces, it should be fun to see how you have progressed since school.

    You should definately start a sketchbook, i remember you had some insane pencil renderings back in school. People like that around here.

    Again, welcome to conceptart, enjoy your stay!

    nice

    I'm really enjoying your pencil renders of the female figure and face, awesome stuff. From the beginning towards the end I can see that your proportion has increased dramatically, keep posting, awesome work dude.

    Five Months!

    Ladies and gents, its been almost five months since my last update. Partly because my scanner was stolen, but most of all because i've been exploring other things besides drawing. And i've slacked off quite a bit as well. Well, im back, and hopefully with a vengeance! Here's something from yesterday, 2 of my brothers, from photos.

    Great sb! Looking through it all, I think the refs helped, but that's what they're there for -- I mean it as a good thing. Awesome stuff.

    That last post looks great too. Only crits I have are the differences in value on the eyes of the boy on the left. And, on the boy to the right, the neck needs a bit something so that it doesn't look cut off from the head. It's a fantastic rendering job with near perfect economy of lines. Well done.

    Post more often too!

    -Craig

    you replied for me, so it's only fair. the anatomy does look very good, and your practice shows. the girls all look fantastic, and i really like the expressiveness you manage to pull off even in simple sketches. they're also manage to be very creative while avoiding being hoaky. last update looks very nice, but craig is right about the eyes. the girl with the huge neck from way long ago manages to be my favorite little drawing in the whole thing, though. excellent work, wkeep posting.
