    Jared's Sketchbook

    Well here's another guy trying to get good at that drawing thing. I'm getting into it late being 24 now but I can't work as a welder anymore due to my bad knee. I just want a job where I can create for a living as that's what I enjoy so I've jumped into art with a helpful push from my sister who is already a working artist in animation.

    So far I haven't taken the studying seriously due to bad, lazy, "excuses", so I've been maning the fuck up at the start of the year. I enrolled in Vilppu's online essentials class and am trying to pound my head in with art now.

    Going to end each post with a promise of what I will upload the next day as I've yet to break my word to anyone so I'll feel forced to do it. I'll do more and more as time goes on.

    Tomorrow: 100 thirty second gestures and 50 two minute gestures

    Hey Jared, welcome to conceptart! You have some really nice stuff here, especially the figure drawings! Hope to see more coming... 100 and 50 gesture drawings is A LOT... hope that you will still post no matter how many you've got. One gesture drawing is one more drawing you have under your belt.

    @Cabbage Caterpillar: Thanks, 100/50 is a bit right now but I want to get it up to 6 hour daily studies so need to start with a little kick

    Next I'll be doing Vilppu or Bammes studies on the hip and more gestures.

    Here's some of the 150. Red is 30 seconds with china marker and black is 2 minutes with polychromos black pencil.

    Jared D I would love to hear what you think of Vilppu's Basic online course once your done. I'm struggling with the fundamentals myself.

    @iMigraine, Sure thing. After the classes are done I'll make a post here with all my studies form the class and sum up the class in some kind of mini review of my work and the course.

    Ending up doing some quick hip studies today too. Not much besides a few messy loose copies of Vilppu's art:

    Some 1 minute gesture pages and copies. Not as much today or tomorrow due to the homework for vilppu's class has me hitting a wall a bit.

    Tomorrow: A most likely badly set up still life drawing I'll doing for class and 100 more one minute gestures with pen.

    Did 50 1 minute female gestures based on rhythm when I got up and I'll do 50 male when I'm about to hit the hay. Going to make that the start to my daily no excuses study time. Going to try and cut down the number of times I go over the same line :/

    Also working on that still life homework today, got the hard part done (design) moving onto the render.

    Homework for class went pretty bad. Had to take a painting and copy the overall plan of the painting as a still life. Didn't even get the H x W right, think my old welding co-workers would laugh their asses off at that. (got cocky and thought I could eye ball it) Also wish I had more time as now that it's done I want to add a cloth to show the robe shape better. Well I can see the mistakes so it's made me better at least.

    Anyways, going to keep going with the 100 one minute gestures a day but going to only post them once a day now. Most likely one page of male and one page of female as I'm flooding my SB with the spam at this point. Only one page can show how much better I've gotten. With that said I think I'm getting a little better at it.

    Tomorrow: 100 gestures, perspective study, and some copies of comic book poses for fun.

    Wow, you're really doing it!!! The gesture looks great, love the flowy lines. It's really motivational to see you posting so many drawings. Keep them coming!

    I agree with the above poster, your dedication is inspiring.

    The success in the composition exercise in post #8 seems like it would come more strongly from mimicking the value pattern. I'm not sure if that's against the assignment guidelines though. I did a quick still life from imagination to show what I'm talking about (sorry for the terribly boring set up):

    @Cabbage Caterpillar, thanks man. I'll keep them coming as long as my arms still work.

    @Doot Dee Doo, Ya, it was about getting as much of the painting into the still life. There's a lot of things I wanted to redo like the values using a darker curtain and a cloth for the robe shape.

    The comic stuff today turned out bad as I did it in photoshop and I'm not use to using my tablet on my lap due to not be able to draw from the elbow (no where to put it on the table with the new set up) should just start doing gestures in there to get use to it. To make up for it I did some Bridgeman torsos, did the two of the back loose and the side and front slower.

    Also should start my perspective study in photoshop, the T-square on a drawing board sitting on my lap is awkward as it never looks level. I think I just need to get use to the new area.

    Going to start using a darker lead for the later studies as my scanner lightens things.

    Tomorrow: 100 one minute gestures, more perspective study, and whatever Vilppu tosses at me in tomorrow's class.

    Did more perspective study, going to restudy 3 point and then get to work on a few pages of thumbnail perspective studies every day and whenever I find I can't put something in I'll study into it more. (they'll get more complex and more free hand as I go) I'll get into drawing humans to perspective in detail once I move into doing box form gestures and more wrapping lines. Vilppu class upload isn't till tomorrow now. (have to email them about it) With the free time I did 100 30 sec gestures on top of the 100 1 minute gestures.

    Started doing half my gestures from imagination to help beat the knowledge in and help with idea making with poses, did the ones from imagination in photoshop so I could play around with the poses more. Once I'm able to do the ones from imagination at a good speed I'll move on to the next step in gestures (Spherical Forms). As for now I'm moving into 2 minute gestures to start using wrapping line and not trying to show the forms with triangles, don't know why that habit came from. Didn't do too much for perspective besides some free hand messy stuff. Also started using posemaniac as I keep getting the same poses on lovecastle and pixelovely.
    perspective.

    Torrmorow: The start to Vilppu class homework, two drawings from observation (not sure if I'll post them WIP or not) 50 2 minute gestures, 50 gestures from imagination.

    Hey Jared. It's so inspiring to see you putting in so much work. The Perspective looks great. What resource do you use for studying perspective?
    Your gesture drawings are already improving a lot!! Please keep going!!
    How is the Vilppu's class: Do you get to have personal critiques from him or how does the class work...?
