nice start to your sb! your traditional work looks pretty good but your digitals seem to fall behind a bit maybe you could do some more digital studies. anyways keep posting!
Interestimg landscapes, if enviroments are your thing maybe u shud try experenting with colour, mayb do a bit of impressionism?
Thank you, Kevin. I've yet to buy my first tablet. What you see is painted using a mouse. You are right, i have to work on my digital art studies.
True, I need to capitalize on my hatching skills by improving digital art.
Thank you Marco! I'am trying to discover the possibilities here. Thanks for your advices/ suggestions.
Here are some sketches and miscellaneous studies using an ink pen. PLs. feel free to critique my work, i need to improve my skills.
Thanks in advance!
Notice: Pages 6-7 are my last studies. Last ones shown above were my warm-ups, obviously
These are few studies in graphite pencil. I'm trying to grasp the structure of human anatomy.
I like your tree studies, they're very convincing. Good work all around, keep em coming!
Thanks, Xamllew! I've seen your "neck of the woods", and i was impressed. My profession isn't related to art, and i've been sketching on and off for many years, which shows in some of my poor studies. I have some major catch up to do! I'm almost 34 yrs now
Thanks for commenting, and all the best to you.
Hey dude, cool pen studies, I also like that oil pastel drawing, do more of those. As far as your figures and tree studies go, I would suggest 'loosening up' a little...dont be afraid to draw through. They come off as being stiff because it seems like you're trying to make it perfect on the first stroke. Now theres something to be said about strong line economy but in my opinion if it comes at the loss of life (gesture) and structure in the drawing then its not worth it. Try giving the trees a personality based on the kind of mood or energy they are giving off, or how they make you feel. Take a look at sketches by Luc Desmarchelier for examples. Anyway I hope that makes sense. Keep at it and good luck.
Thanks for the advice, sprogis7, much appreciated. I'll try to let loose my pen while sketching, and be bolder with lines.
You have such a beautiful sketchbook btw!
