    Clockodile's Sketch Book

    Hey there!

    I've been meaning to make a sketchbook thread on here for some time, so I'm going to start off with some recent pictures and sketch work from the last week or two to show where I'm at. With the exception of a rather lackluster GCSE Art course nearly a decade a ago, I have no formal art education, but in the last six months or so I've decided to kick it up a notch and focus on improvement.

    Like pretty much everyone else, I'm here to get better, so concrit is welcomed and encouraged.

    Life sketches. The first two are done in charcoal, and the second pair in pencil - the second shoe is a redesign done from imagination based on the first.

    Deconstructed figures, done from photos, masters drawings/paintings, and imagination. I did about 75 of these (25 of each), but I'm not prepared to flood this page or waste time scanning the lot, so I just did a broad mixture.

    Mini-photostudies done to have a look at how light and colour behave at different times of day.

    And to finish up for now, lighting studies done by reusing the same self-portrait sketch - the shading was done hopping between observation and photo-reference.

    OK, so here are some more quick landscape studies. I'm gradually working through different lighting conditions through the day, so here are some morning and midday ones.

    Self protrait, and the second one uses the first as a reference to alter it from imagination. I don't think I am going to change to round glasses any time soon, haha.

    Portrait study. Thinking about how skin tones work again -how greyer tones are there and how different colours occur in the face.

    And finishing up with a quick character portrait from imagination.

    Decided to do a bit of a brush up on basic drawing skills over the weekend! Besides continuing some colour studies.

    Character portrait from imagination. Mainly thinking about the colour that can be worked into skintones here.

    Some fun action gestures, I started off on boxing again, but moved onto the sumos. Working with the strong movement of the throws was a particular highlight of the week.

    A few of the 50 odd head constructions done this week. The first two images/25 heads are from photo reference, the second two/25 heads from imagination.

    Life drawings. Mainly focusing on drawing through forms and thinking about cylinders in the first 4; I took some bottles from the bathroom and drew them at a few angles. The last one is a quick charcoal value study of some toned boxes and a white ball. Scanning it really made me realise how wonky my lines are.

    A few more colour studies - sorry my notes are stuck on the last one, I made a mistake with the layers. Up to late afternoon, dusk and nighttime scenes here; I think I will do a couple more to fill any gaps in shade/weather and move on.

    I am surprised no one has commented here yet o_O
    I really like the direction you are going with your work =]
    Your paintings come out very nice but I noticed your traditional drawings come out a little flat. I am in no position to crit you, as I am not close to where you are at but perhaps a few construction studies could help, I would recommend having a look at Nathan Fawkes work and see how he builds it up.
    Thanks for helping me out by the way, highly appreciated.

    I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!

    Thank you very much for your input! My traditional skills are embarrassingly weak, especially with charcoal. I looked up Nathan Fowkes, and I recognise some of his commercial work, particularly the El Dorado environments. The charcoal studies he does are new to me though; it is very inspiring to so see such confident strokes. I've made a note to put some time into having a more concentrated look at them.

    ---

    A bit disappointed with the last few days' haul. Maybe I'll put the tablet aside for a day and get some meaty mileage with a pad of paper.


    Warm up gestures for a picture below. Planning out some poses.

    Outfit design, messing with doing a ref sheet since my loose sketch for this was horrifying.

    A couple of character outfit designs. Trying to think of ways to keep a theme for two very different outfits on the same guy. Not wholly satisfied with the poses; the stiffness kills them.

    Anatomy practise. Fun, fun, fun. I love drawing torsos. Working on memorising muscle connection points, as well as general reaction to movement and trying out different angles. These are some of 25 photo studies; I will be doing 25 from imagination soon, and possibly some old master studies.

    Rock life study. Sort of stepping up from the cubes, I went for a dark-medium-pale combo so I could see light working on different surface values.

    daaamn im digging the effort in figure construction and perspective, i think you might want to do some costume studies as well i use www.thesartorialist.com for that but there are alot of similar webs that can help you understand how clothes behave and how the folds wrap in the body, the pinches and stretches are whats important this imply movement or rotation and can help a figure read better, keep it up man!!

    my sketchbook! Drawing like a maniac!!

    My Blog

    Destroy your weaknesses! theres nothing more to it! stop bitching grab that pencil and sketch Away!

    Thank you! It has been quite a while since I have done any studying on costumes. The Satorialist is really good, they have a huge archive to dive into. In the past I've found there are some decent tumblr blogs via google for more specific stuff too. I will make sure to keep the pinches and stretching in mind when I draw next.

    -

    Been a bit too long since my last update. Following V3T's advice, I worked on some charcoal studies

    Another lighting study - again, just looking at how the window light works.

    Artist study - Portrait of Alfred Pavlouch Nurok by Serov. Drawing done in some kind of odd, waxy china pencil. Quite good for discouraging myself from going into fiddly details too early.

    Done from Rubens Peale by Rembrandt Peale - I picked this mostly because it had a lot of 'green' in, which is a colour area I have real trouble with.

    Not going to scan in any more of these because they're boring, but I have been having a go at some of Peter Hans sketching exercises. Largely because I'm trying to break a HORRIBLE habit of drawing inwards all the time. It restricts my stroke length, so I intend on breaking the habit. It is much easier to do these inking exercises now my shoulder blades have stabilised a bit.

    And to finish up, the sketches I did on a quick trip to the Natural History Museum. I figured I'd drop in since I was travelling past it. Wish I could have spent longer in there.

    Some nice stuff you got here. The studies are great , the poses are nice. Keep working on them. Also you have a knack for color, and it shows because of the difference of color/non-colored drawings, like those done with the pencil.

    Anyways , good luck , wanted to give you a hello .

    Thank you for dropping by! Yes, when I started using charcoal and pencil more, I really noticed the (embarrassing) disparity between those works and the digital stuff. So I'm trying to do more of that.

    Great studies , the last batch. And also Sargent . I like how you incorporated the ways of cloth folding together and indentified them by the way they fold. That's a pretty neat thing. I might try that someday.

    Wow, nice work, definitely for someone without any formal training. Your are already doing the right like things (Gestures, life drawing, etc...) for improvement. One thing I do notice though is occasionally your faces lea towards being a litte wide to the rest of the facial proportions.

    ....and oh thanks for stopping by my SB !

    Critiques on my work always welcome!!

    Thank you! I find it is helpful to annotate my studies sometimes.

    Thank you for the crit! I'll try to keep an eye on that problem from now on, I'm noticing it a lot now you mention it.

    Couple of life and a portrait study. Portrait study came out pretty bad, but compared to a couple of others I did, I guess it can be shared.
