    pointed stick's sketchbook

    Hello!

    I've been drawing and painting on and off since I was a wee lad, but never really took it seriously. At 21 years of age though, I finally decided that it was time to get my shit together and acutally practice. I started going to weekly life-drawing classes, and basically just started drawing and painting a whole lot.

    I'm not really sure what my goal is, other than improving my art. Which brings me great joy though, so I guess it's as much a goal as any.


    Attatched are a few works from the last couple of weeks. The portrait is acrylics on board, and painted from life. The rest are digital (made after watching Matt Kohr's free introduction to digital painting).

    But enough talk. Have at you!

    I like the orca. I started with Matt Kohr's introduction to digital painting, too. Keep posting!

    Here's a book cover I did (not for an actual book, just to try it out). And also a few life drawings (2-5 min poses)

    Here's a still life i made today. Trying to paint different materials. Glass and metal are kinda tricky indeed. If anyone feels like giving me a few crits, that would be just dandy:)

    Thanks for the kind words, velvetcat!

    Here's a thermos and a tiny horse that I drew from life yesterday.

    Great to see a fellow 21 year old going serious mode with art.
    I am there myself at the moment.
    Watch the ellipses of the glass, those are really tricky to get right.
    I like those crows, particularly the pose of the second one.

    Will do! Ellipses are very tricky indeed. Good luck with your art!

    It's been a while since i did something entierly from imagination, so for this one, i didn't allow myself to use any sort of reference, just to see how it turned out.

    Good stuff! I really like that book cover. I think all you need to do for painting is practice more, from life/photos/imagination Try 30 seconds gestures too with http://artists.pixelovely.com/practice-tools/
    Try to do the spartan camp exercises, http://www.conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=74
    just 50 gestures weekly plus an optional extra assignment. It's fun and useful to be regular with it!

    Thanks muddy! That gesture-practice-thingy seems great, will definitely use it. Gonna check out the spartan camp aswell, always nice to have something to work towards.

    I havn't really ever drawn vehicles, so I decided to make a quick study of a truck. Mostly focusing on the forms, not so much on the details.
