    Gabriel's Sketchbook

    Greetings!
    I'm a beginner artist aiming to become a professional illustrator one day. I know the road is tough, but i'm stubborn. This forum for me has been something really amazing and inspirational and fun and awesome and amazing. Seeing the work of amazing professionals and hardworking beginners really helps drive me forward.
    So, i decided to begin my sketchbook thread so i can get used to showing my art to people, and hopefully get some useful critique. What follows is some random and irregular sketches and studies i've made recently. I plan to keep studying intensively, so expect more from me. I hope you find it entertaining!

    Some sketches. I drew those really small on the same page, so they're really low res. Trying my hand at composition, but i don't know if i'm too happy with those. Feeling like i'm not going far enough, or something like that.

    You got some pretty cool designs, but try to study more from life instead of photos.

    Hey, everything looks nice so far. I don't know if your inconsistency between posts reflects how often you actually draw, but in case you aren't all ready: try drawing at least once per day. Get in the habit of drawing frequently. Thus, you will naturally get more done and perhaps improve faster.

    I liked your studies a lot (I believe they were gestures) you should do a lot more of those! Work your butt off on the fundamentals and your compositions and characters will improve immensely. I suggest you look at some books by Andrew Loomis and George Bridgman in getting down a strong foundation and build from.

    There is no glass;

    take your liquids
    and idioms elsewhere.

    Thanks! I know of Loomis and Bridgman, they're epic. I need to get back to their books asap.
    And oh, i'm drawing a lot lately. I just have a weird mental block against being consistent. I can't keep journals. I'll try harder

    E ai cara, vi no seu dva q vc eh brasileiro, tente atualizar mais por aki, assim da pra ir acompanhando bem seu progresso, tente fzer uns studos usando o brush com 100% de opacidade e hardness sem a pressao da caneta, assim vc tem q se forçar mais a pegar as cores exatas e simplificar a imagem, se conseguir simplificar com poucas cores qnd for fzer algo mais complexo fika mais facil. Vou ver seu sb de vez enqnd, abrço.

    Coming back with stuff! Painted this today. The idea was to make a small ugly creature look menacing with the use of perspective. I think i could have done a better job of conveying the scale of things. The trees in the background and the little rodent are there to get the idea across, but maybe i should add grass or something else to reinforce it?

    The creature is a dragon-tortoise. Not sure what they eat. Probably not rats, it doesn't look fast enough... hm

    Very nice work. I liked your figure studies. They were lively and full of gesture, and showed you were thinking about the body in terms of 3D shapes. You should keep doing those on a regular basis. That's how you'll improve the fastest! Also your handle on colors is great, but don't be afraid to splash some more saturated hues in there every now and again. It can really make things "pop" and will make things more visually intense.

    Thanks! Yes i agree, i'm getting back to figure and anatomy studies presently. I always learn a lot from those and i think i'm getting rusty
