    Janes Sketchbook - Feel free to help!

    I was a little dubious to wherever I should post a Sketchbook on here or not, but I figured that the worst that could happen is I actually get some help so here I am.

    My next to-do list of what I'm going to tackle is:
    - Hands
    - Men
    - Faces

    If you have any pointers, criticism do say, it'll help me! Thank you for looking

    Images, from Deviantarts stock/resources area, I want to do more real life, I think I'll set up some nice little sets of my roses before they die and get some light/atmosphere practise!

    Thank you!

    Anatomy... yeah a very involved and often infuriating pursuit. Looks like you have a nice grasp of form and proportion though, the figures look well shaped. Those are challenging poses, good choices. Nice start on the SB I'll keep an eye out for new work.

    Thank you! Mind if I make friends with you? I haven't really met people on here yet and it would be nice to have someone to talk too and encourage!

    My issue with anatomy is I don't understand whats going on underneath, its incredibly frustrating! I know where things are supposed to be, but not so wonderfully technical as some and I want to be as good as the best. Hmph!

    I did a study of Roberto Ferris ( )

    I loved the way he used such a wide pallet and his forms are wonderful. I have a lot to learn!

    A creature I'm doing, a little stupidly trying to mix flaking/ash skin with fur ( well done Jane! ) so I'm a little stuck about how to go about it. I'll have to have a think!

    It looked beautiful so I had to try and use it as a stock, though obvi the legs are different.
    Thank you for the comment

    You're having trouble with anatomy, but I'd say that learning to construct the human figure as a complex series of basic forms is the most important thing right now, as your work is missing construction. Hardcore perspective studies are what you should be studying mostly at the moment, as that is the basic fundamental needed for good draftsmanship. And perspective covers so much that will help you in the long run which includes how to correctly render forms in certain lighting situations. Scott Robertson has a relatively cheap DVD on basic perspective drawing that I'd suggest you invest in. It's the best, most concise and practical video I've found on the subject and will alone push you forward. After that, if you're interested in construction as it applies to the human figure, I'd suggest moving onto Glenn Vilppu (great for understanding gesture, by the way) and Michael Hampton's Figure Drawing: Design and Invention book/video series. You have a good start, but to take it to a next level it's time to focus yourself and really nail a certain aspect of your studies, and this is a great and arguably the best place to start. Keep it all up, madame.

    The deer is awesome! I love it! Background doesn't feel quite finished tho... but that's probably just me.

    My sketchbook. Let me show you it.

    The background is more just there to fill in the gaps, all I wanted to do was show my creature design off, I just thought a grey background is a bit rubbish!

    Glad you like it though

    Hi Jane!
    Lovely studies and I love that deer! I actually think the very simple background looks good, it looks very crisp and delicate.
    Also, men are hard to draw >.<
