    Guntuku Sketchbook

    Hi all,

    I have been a lurker here for quite a long time..
    And I finally found some courage to post my stuff here
    I am posting some old stuff from my architecture school days to present day, so kindly bear with it .
    And feedback would be highly appreciated.

    I always wanted to draw portraits but my confidence was never growing, I tried learning from Looms but what really helped me was - 'Betty Edwards, Drawing with the Right side of the brain'. Great Book... absolutely... I was following the exercises in there.. and the portrait drawing exercise was simply brilliant.

    This was the one in the begining of the exercise ...

    And this was after .... Its not a complete accurate portrait.. but thanks to Betty's book, my confidence levels were boosted.
    although it took me almost a month to make myself sit and draw.

    I was always fascinated by drawings of people in public transport. I wanted to see if I could do as well. Although they are pretty awkward sketches, I liked the way the subject used to change their pose every few mins. Here are some sketches from London's tube on my commute to work. IMG_7371.jpg

    Hey mate,

    Lotsa great studies keep going!

    For the sketches of people on transportation, its quite hard to get them exactly, dare I say, impossible?
    So don't sweat on how accurate the forms are, go for the posture of the people and the expression down.
    Those will be useful notes for you.
    eg. you draw middle aged man dozing off look for the large shapes of his figure and clothes(pear/watermelon shaped etc) leaning sideways.
    The next time you want to invent a skinny lady dozing off you will reference the same notes from the man, the angles his body tilts, the way the limbs are laid out will follow similar "dozing off" configurations.

    Cheers Anzhou...
    Thanks for the advice, it makes sense to me now.. i used to try to get every detail..but what you said sounds sensible.. will put to use in future when i am in a city with good transportation, sadly for now in India where I live I can hardly travel using Public transportation


    Meanwhile some more updates ... these were from when i started to attend Life Drawing with my wonderful colleagues at work.

    Copies from Sketches of Sargent.. He is just incredible, his use of charcoal in potrait drawings...omg it is
    and the way he used to captured emotions ... is stunning. Great Great source of inspiration
