    nates sketchbook [09-18-05][pg. 266-278]

    i thought i would start a sketchbook so i'll draw more often. here are some old and some recent drawings, lots of nudes here, but i do try to do a bit of everything. any c&c would be appreciated, and i will try to use any suggestions given to me.

    ---------------------------------------------------

    * i decided to bump all the images in this post down to the next one to make it easier to edit the title of this post whenever i update my sketchbook.

    ** also from now (09.06.04) on, for every note i have at the end of a post, i am going to fill a page. since most of them are like "do more of this" and "study that", it should work out ok. any that i've finished i'll just check off with "*done". also, any crits i get i will add a note for, to ensure that i actually get around to doing that. im just going to focus on getting caught up on this stuff for a while now. oh and with notes i have posted more then once i will need to do more then one page for, its not just one page per same note.

    hey, just realized that we're using the exact same nude ref pics. that made me laugh. One of the best tips I got here is not just to copy stuff, when you draw from ref, but try to understand the pose and anything that's behind it, lighting, too. Keep up your good work.

    Really sweet sketches you have there. I look forward to seeing more from you. I don't really have many crits, just keep playing with the lighting and different perspectives...it will help you out a lot in the long run.

    jeff jaws: thanks for replying. yeah, haha, good refs. i'll try more to think about what im drawing rather than just copying it, i'm going to start doing more anatomy studies too.

    ccnick: i'll try to do some still lifes, etc. to work on perspective and lighting a bit more.

    again today only had time to do one page, been working so much lately. should be able to do more than one tomorrow. i thought i should do a bit of work on hands.

    cool stuff, keep drawing from life and references, it'll help you along the way. also, don't be afraid to spread out your sketches, if there's too much on the page, it will make the drawing difficult and distorted as you try to cram it into a specific area.

    keep it up!

    cotron: hey buddy, thanks for posting. i did what you said about drawing from life, did a still life tonight, and will probably start doing them more often. also tried to spread things out a bit more and it did help for these ones since i was rendering them more.

    today i got a still life of an apple, banana, and a napkin. and i did a full page of a face. although i think both of these turned out lookin like crap, they were good to do, i think i'll have to do more full page drawings.

    ..nate..

    That still life is pretty spiffy, despite the slightly demented fruit. Keep it up! :scared:

    another page, charcoal and chalk pastel.
    i actually drew three faces for this, but the first was too small, and the second didnt work after i covered up the first, so i just scanned it and screwed around with it in photoshop.
