    Brakktice - Brakken's sketchbook

    Hello!

    The name's Max, but I go by Brakken, too. I've been drawing all my life, but have only started taking it seriously over the last few years. And now I have decided to begin really knuckling down and learning it! My plan is to keep to a daily schedule that includes warmups, lined drawings, digital painting, and animation - posting my work here as I go. I have weekends off, to work on my comic projects.

    I think one of my greatest flaws is getting to a point with a drawing where I know I need to add more to it, but I've no idea how or where it is required. I hope this thread will serve as a journal and a guide - and help me achieve my goals as an artist.

    Okay, let's do this!

    Slight computer hiccup - slight delay on getting to drawing. Won't stop me though, no sir.

    In human anatomy, I find I struggle most with legs, so I'm focusing on them - bone studies and basic shapes.

    15-minute storm paints. I've been shying away from different brushes so far - but I think I'll start trying them out.

    Working on this one has been pretty fun so far - but I've kinda been avoiding those cliffs, and the kid's pants. Can't ignore them forever!

    It's weird - most of the time I have a vision for a drawing, and then the final image either fails to meet it, meets it perfectly, or in rare cases exceeds it. But with this one I don't really have a vision of the end result - it's being drawn in my head at the same rate as on the page. Pretty exciting actually
