    This isn't the sketchbook you're looking for

    Hi, I've been lurking around on CA's forums for few years now, and decided it's finally time to start my own sketchbook thead. Hopefully it'll motivate me to get my shit together and push myself to work harder than ever.

    So, just to get this thing going in the next few posts I'm gonna post some stuff I've been doing since 2009 when I've graduated from highschool and decided to become profesional artists up untill now.

    Between autumn 2009 and summer 2010 for few months I've been attending private art course, where I've done my first still life studies. Unfortunately I dont have any photos of them yet, but I'll try to upload them in the future. I've done some life model drawings there too, but they sucked so much that I wasn't even making photos of them.

    These are drawings from my first portfolio to Fine Art Academy in Wroclaw + some extra wip's gif's. I've been doing these on my own between autumn 2010 and summer 2011 (i didnt got in that year)

    Photos are pretty bad - pencil is a real bitch to capture with camera - too much light reflections. I hope I'll be able to make some proper photos somewhere in the future.

    Everything is B1 format 100x70 cm / ~40x28 in - all done in pencil

    Also few (crappy and crooked) examples of quick sketches ive been doing to improve my poor quick drawing skills - mainly accuracy and speed. Ive been working at least 4 hours a day on these. Hands and feet were done in 5 minutes on each drawing (pairs of feet 10min), 10 pieces a day - I was drawing some other stuff but those aren't worth showing.

    Just to give you idea of the ammount here are photos showing thickness of all the sketches that i've done to that point compared to my ipod classic (lower pair)

    Also hands and feet alone - hands on the right, feet on the left side. (upper pair)

    Well, the cool posts are over ;p Now's the time for my shitty digital works

    These are almost all my digital studies up untill summer 2012 (about 90% of 'em) - as you can see there arent many of them - academy dont accept digital work so ive been focused mainly on traditional stuff and was doing those ocassionally - also i was fucking lazy back then.

    I dont remember chronology, except that batman was my first "study" with tablet.

    Since summer 2012 to end of december I've beed trying to transfer my hand and feet drawing excersise from traditional to digital medium in order to improve precission of drawing with wacom pen. This time I was doing 20 drawings per day, 3 minutes on each - just few samples here, full downloads in links below.

    I stopped doing these because of my school assigments interrupting my own work, and also I felt, that I've been losing my focus while doing them - I started to fill the gaps from my mind instead carefull observation.

    From the perspective of time I know it was a mistake and I still regret this decision - when done on regular basis this thing would made my digital line drawing ability kick ass by now.

    What sucks most about all those drawings is that I've must done more than 3000 sketches of them up untill now - digital as well traditional -and I'm still unable to draw neather a hand nor fee from imagination.

    Well you gotta learn form your mistakes - this one got me trying to start spending more time on applying knowledge form my studies to drawing that stuff from imagination.

    FULL DOWNLOAD - about 300 drawings in each file ~15mb each

    @dessinateurimpulsif - Im still trying to get used to software & hardware. There will be time to worry about edges and perfect rendering.

    Finally - my most recent stuff. Got tons of pencil studies too, but I dont have a time for taking pictures, editing 'em etc. ;/

    So, it's been almost exacly 8 months since my last update. During that time - thanks to my fucking "art" "school" - since my last update I've been forced to gradually keep cutting down on hours I've been spending on doing those studies, untill I've almost completely stopped doing them at all - just some random, lazy spontaneous stuff you can see below (yes, that's all Ive done in between april and july - pretty pathetic, I know):

    inspired by sweet structure portrait drawings Gloominati posted on his FB profile

    Looking back, I think that this one portrait study has taught me more than all of the rest put together

    I went a little overboard with structure though ;/

    "fucking art school " XD... i think we all know what you mean... first, your pencil drawings are insane man, are you a shaolinmonk?! For the digital paintings, try to do more clean edges, even if you just focuse on colors so you dont have tostudy it seperately, except you want to study something into the deepest dimensions xD then i think its ok to ignore the rest. I hope you will have some time and motivation next time. And keep doing these ok!? Dont quit :o even if its just doodling. Have fun!

    Clever sketchbook name!

    And it looks like you've gotten some good improvement lately. Nice work!

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    @yuniken - Iknow they suck ;/ hopefully someday I won't have to struggle with software and drawing properly so much, that I have time to work on edges some more

    @p sage - thx man - more improvement incomming ;]

    In those 8 months I've managed to leave that shitty art academy I've been stuck at, and finally get the hell out from Poland, which was my dream for many years (cuz it really, really sucked to live there - I definietelly dont recommend it to anyone)

    I'm currently living in UK, slavin' my ass off as lowest production worker for minimum wage (which is almost 3x bigger than I'd make in Poland by doing the same job). I sleep 6h a day - tops, work since 6am to 2pm, and trying to work as much as possible in my free time.

    For now I'd like to be finally able to grasp enough basics skills to find a job where I'd be able to draw as much as possible, cuz now I'm pretty much just wasting 10h of my day on crappy job that doesn't let me develop any of my artistic skills (nor any other for that matter).

    So far I'm still struggling with getting used to drawing properly (not only digitally, with Intuos stylus, but also with pencil).

    So that's my main focus ATM - I just dont see the point of forcing myself into making tons of crappy paintings, when im lacking the most basic and important artistic skill which is ability to draw properly - when I finally start kicking ass in that I'll move to more interesting stuff.

    So while I'm working on improving that skill, I'm simultaneously trying to learn some basic human anatomy by using approach inspired by Kevin Chen, Michael Hampton and amazing Bryan Lee (FUNKYMONKEY1945 on deviantart - be sure to check out his tutorials - it's pure gold).

    Basically I'm trying to follow their process of breaking down human figure to most basic shapes and slowly refining them into more complex forms - I think it's by far the best way of learning to draw figure from mind, that I've encountered so far, it makes the most sense to me, and I already can feel it gives great results (plus just by drawing this way I feel like it gave me more understanding about how light behaves on different forms, than all those pencil studies ive posted at the begining of my sketchbook)

    So, without further ado, here's my newest stuff - it's pretty much all I've done since july till now (it's not much I know ;/ I'm also doing 30min of gestures daily with pencil - I hope to start doing these digitally someday)

    and I'm done

    I try do my best, to update this sketchbook as often as I can, but since I dont have that much time, and some of thos sites are pain in the ass to work with, I'll probably be forced to limit myself, to uploading only some few, chosen studies from week. However if you're interested in seeing all of 'em I invite you to like my FB page, which will be my most frequently updated artdump (only because it's the easiest of them all to manage - god I love drag n drop uploading)

    - hope you enjoy

    At first when I came here I din't know that it's the beginning of your sketchbook (or I forgot during watching). Then I was looking at all of these studies, sketches (whoooah, there are so many of them, when did you do all of that? I think it would took all my life ! ) and I though sth like: "allllright, I guess that when I go to the last page I'll see goddamn great illustrations" but actually there are not, so I'll just wait for that bacause there is no other way ! With that amount of studies you just can't be bad at it later, you CAN'T ! Wish you all the best )

    Your studies are freaking rocking it! And your pencil work is just absolutely amazing!
    I had a look at your deviantart page too. Where did you learn to draw faces like that? It looks different from Loomis and I've seen it before. I've always wondered.
    Definitely coming back! This is just damn neat stuff!

    thx for all the comments - theire really motivating - I'll try to answer each one of you later

    meanwhile I've managed to squeeze one last study in 2013 - 40mins to midnight here

    and may the 2014 be at least half as awesome as this song

    @Igson - thank you/dzieki - I'll definitely make some of that finished illustrations someday (probably next year or two, around page 50)

    @Mrkolsyrad - thx - the faces are mostly based on loomis methood, or rather from methoods based on loomis approach since I haven't picked it up directly from his book, but rather from Michael Hampton and Stan Prokopenko from Proko.com

    @féfé73 - thank you

    @twelvex - thanks, I'm glad to hear it - this new one is especially for you- hope it will be interesting too

    @shasha1027- thx

    -------------------

    Ive spent last 2-3 days of 2013 on watching Stan Prokopenko's tutorials on his site Proko.com - they're one of the best tutorials video I saw in my life and I cant recommend them enough!

    It's soooooo good that I'm planning on buying premium access in nearest few weeks/months.




    Thanks to his figure series I've changed my approach to my quick figure studies - I think that he managed to finally free me from some rigid and unnecessary rules I've picked up along the way, that became pretty irritating and troublesome. I'm no longer concerned about obsessively copying exact likeness (proportions, exact angles, lines and shapes) of a particular pose, but rather capture the feeling, or "spirit" of that pose - pretty hard to explain, and maybe not so visible in this study, but I can already feel that this different mentality will become very significant in the future studies and It's gonna bring me lots of profit.

    Two new studies from yesterday + more detailed animation with steps for figure (120+ frames).

    Also, in response to all that nice comments on my traditional stuff a little bonus with 2 of my works made in around may/july 2013 when I was studying in Art Acedemy (these are only works I actually liked, that I've done there during entire year). Sorry for crappy cell camera photos ;/

    Superb work. Beautiful renderings at the beginning, lots of studies and two academy pics at the end are sweet. Really like the space invaders one The contrast between the 2d pixels and the soft 3d rendering is interesting. Keep up the hard work!

    long time without quick render practice - I'd like to do em everyday, but usually I don't have enough time for it;/
    even though I'm super rusty somehow I'm pretty pleased with this one

    drawn some muscles on previous gesture without any ref, just to check what I've learned so far - normally I'd do it all the time daily, but unfortunately not enough time ;/

    finally finished, still not 100% happy, but still not bad

    what I've learned on this is that I'm super f-ing slow and that blending is a total bitch
