    Kiichi's Sketchbook

    Hi everyone! After rekindling my interest in art a little less than a year ago now, I've been slowly teaching myself how to draw, and although I've entered my senior year for a ba in sociology I'm still devoting any time I'm not studying to...well, studying (art).

    I'm hoping to post every day, but looking at my schedule realistically it's going to be every few days or on the weekends, much to my chagrin. I have been in the habit of drawing every day though.
    My eventual goal is to work in the animation industry, but in what capacity I'm not sure yet. I was looking into 2d animation, but it doesn't seem like there's going to be that much work in that field, so maybe 3d animation or storyboarding? What's definitely the case is that I need to learn my fundamentals, and even if I don't make it my career I wont stop absorbing every bit of it like a sponge. A moldy 'ol sponge.

    Anyways, let's begin!

    Any and all critique is more than welcomed! I'm here to learn after all, and I'd appreciate any advice/critique/scoldings y'all can offer

    Yesterday's and today's pages.

    I really wish I could devote more time to art right now, but 'eh, not much I can do about that given my current schedule.
    Some quick studies of busts, a quick sketch of a guy trying to hand out bibles in front of campus, and a few 30 second gestures.

    PNate - Thanks man!

    These are mostly gestures from the last couple of days, along with practicing 2 point perspective today. Now I gotta work on these blasted papers. D:
    I have to admit it's frustrating to spend so much time learning a subject I don't care for when I really want to be studying art, but things could be much worse. I have no real reason to whine, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel like whining lol.

    Cheers!

    Hey Kiichi thanks for your words over on my sketchbook! I can't offer any words to you at the moment as you are breaking back into drawing so the most important part here is that you enjoy exploring your self expression. What I can say is when you are ready, start focusing on aspects you wish to develop rather than sporadic studies (not that they are sporadic at the moment) a lot of people get overly ambitious and want to study everything and get frustrated when they see lack of improvement. Focused study in areas shows the fastest improvement.
    keep a little pocket sketchbook with you and get in the habit of drawing everywhere you go quickly. the more you sketch the better your sketches become. not to be confused with the more you draw the better your drawings become I would say lol. sketching is an aspect of drawing if you get what I mean. I'll keep an eye out dude!
    If I happen to comment on your sketchbook, please don't feel obliged to comment on mine. use that time instead to get back to work.

    luthertaylor - Thanks man! Yeah I've been in the habit of carrying around a small sketchbook, but I find it very hard to make time to do more than quick life drawings when lately. I will try though. I'm very much looking forward to next quarter though, as I'll only be taking 12 units instead of 16. Lots more time to draw then!

    Anyways here are some life drawings from today. I've been favoring pen lately because it's so quick.

    Nice update dude! I'd keep up with the sketching until you have some real serious time to commit to a fully focused drawing going for supreme accuracy.
    drawing intensively for a while focused towards accuracy will actual improve your sketching ability as your eye will become more accurate.
    keep it up dude looking forward to more.

    Raymond Luk - Haha, thank you! But yeah, I've been working on improving for a little less than a year now. I'm pretty dissatisfied with my progress so far, but not much can be done about it until mid december I'm afraid, when I have more time :/ Thank you for the encouraging words though!

    JoshB - Thank you! I did some googling and his stuff, especially with his animation focus, seems right up my alley. I'm slowly working through the Vilppu vids, but the Force books are definitely on my list now.

    luthertaylor - Thanks man! Like you recommended earlier I'm trying to focus on specific parts at a time now, outside of general life drawing/sketching when I am able. Thanks again!

    Here's a few from the week, but mostly from this weekend.
