    Kopfscheu's Sketchbook

    Hi there,

    seen so many great things here, that I've decided to show my not so great sketches. Cosmic equation.
    Be gentle, but feel free to criticise.

    Some quick gestures. I have to work on anatomy, I know.

    And a portrait.

    Drawn with markers (I'm a noob). It looks ridiculous and the bad photoquality doesn't help at all.

    Hallo kopfscheu, wie gehts? Wilkommen auf cA sketchbooks.
    Ich hoffe mal du wirst mehr mit uns teilen, es sieht prima aus bit jetzt!

    Na ja, my german, I hope didn't scare you haha xD
    Like i said, good work so far and try working with bigger brushes.
    Try constructing, and look up loomis, bridgman, vilppu etc and draw after them
    (sorry if you know them already and i'm just talking nonsense here)

    Have a great day!
    Sketchbook - I really appreciate comments and critique, please visit!

    hey kopfscheu,from looking at you studies I would recommend spending equal amounts of time making value
    studies,once you capture the right values it is much easier to capture the hue and saturation of the color.
    also do other fundumental exercizes-perspective,construction,gesture.
    you show some knowledge already,isolate your weaknesses and work with purpose.

    This is John Malkovich wearing a raven on his head.
    I set myself a limit of one hour, so it isn't finished (the raven has no feets and its wing is all wrong and John has no real ears, the blendig isn't done and so on) - perhaps I put a little more work in it, because I like the idea.

    Yay.
    And a crappy marker sketch of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    I really love the skin you're painting. You portraits are just lovely and really alive!

    I would suggest to start with a grey background on those digital paintings, though. This would be easier on your eyes and generally helps speeding up the process.

    General, full body anatomy seems to be your weakest point at the moment. Go and fill a few pages with gesture studies and keep up the great work

    hello kopfscheu ,that malkovich study is pretty good i like the sense of form and structure it has.
    one thing I would suggest is to simplify your shapes and reduce your amount of values you work with,when copying think of the simple big planes,versus just copying what you see.
    I think it helps when you describe the form with the minimal amount of information- you want your message to be clear and simple(at least I do!),you can always add stuff later.

    Hiya! Welcome to Conceptart, pretty nice things in this sketchbook,
    With your last upload the painting with the boat looks kinda weird because u used opacity, it's like you can see through the boat.

    Keep it going!
    See my latest Sketchbook work!
    Feel Free to comment!

    Thanks. Yeah, I know, I paint all those - let's say it with Bob Ross - happy little accidents and details. Should study more fundamentally. Like you said before: value studies and construction. I did a lot of grayscale studies the past weeks, but it sucked. Ok, I sucked.

    @Deceptive
    Thanks to you, too. Let's call it a ghostship?! I know. That was my first landscape ever and the first try and fail with Painter. No good combination, I think ;-)
    ------

    Something completely different: my first sculpture. It looks really strange, but hey: I had the biggest fun of my life (and the most dirtiest work area ever).

    oh wow your attention to detail in the wrinkles of the face are awesome!
    it seems like your pieces in traditional medium are much stronger than the digital ones (but the john malkovich one is freakin' great )
