    TreeLeaf's SKETCHBOOK :)

    WELCOME
    Thanks for viewing this thread
    Help a young un' improve!
    Feel free to rate, comment, critic or just check some stuff out!

    I'm new here and Feedback and Criticism are happily welcomed. My name is Darryl I'm 17 yrs old who desires to push my drawing and painting skills, my art teachers think I'm really good at what I do, they don't give much constructive advice,but the standards of art in our school here isn't really that high. However I know I can be better. I hope that by being in this competitive talented environment, I can grow and find friends in this site who also loves to draw and paint
    I would like to improve, and looking around this forum I've seen a very constructive and supportive community

    More stuff

    Here's a work in progress, I'll try and shoot an image of where it's currently at right now. Done with pastels, tinted charcoals and conte pencils. I don't really like dry powdery medium and this is my first big drawing of it ( a1 size!) and but I'm trying to change my perception of this type of medium hopefully I'd like better by the end of this drawing!

    Your longer portrait studies are quite nice - it looks like you've got some solid observational rendering skills, which will help you immensely in terms of building up a visual vocabulary for imaginary things. Good start! ( :

    WIP

    This is a painting study for a portrait of my Dad, its part of a development sheet that I'm trying to fill. I don't usually work like this intuitive manner. But I enjoy working like this than being rigid with myself. Its starting to take some shape from where it started which was just blobs of muted gouache paint... It still is but its become solid.

    The amount of detail in your portrait work is absolutely stunning. You seem to really understand the nuances of the human face... Beautiful style as well.
    I would maybe like to see more diverse work from you... see how you do with other subjects.

    Also... it's funny... that portrait of your great uncle, my first thought was "da vinci", then I noticed you signature.

    Old Stuff

    I'm trying to find as more older stuff and put them here so that i can see my progress (if I do..)

    I know most of the stuff that I post are pieces and not sketches. But I don't really consider my stuff as finished...

    Hey hey! Nice works so far, the portraits are best so far. More gesture studies and anatomy studies might help your figures gain more fluidity and a more consistent stucture. (I need to do those more myself.)
    You ever seen this? http://artists.pixelovely.com/practi...igure-drawing/ really useful if you haven't.
    It makes a nice morning warm up routine.
    Keep up the good work anyway, hope to see more soon!

    Take a look? - Sketchbook - Tumblr -
    Also, why not check these guys too?

    SKETCHBOOK update

    Its been so long since I last seen you ConceptArt!I'm loving the new layout, its nice and sleek!
    I've continued working on these 4 faces a lil' bit but I didn't want to make finished drawings as I only wanted to make studies for my Art Project for school. I've continued drawing things in opposites and I wish that I should done this earlier and not now where I only have a month and and a few days till it's submission time, this is also my last year in high school !!!!!!


    I've also started painting in color and is slowly becoming less stupid about it from noticing ridiculous things that I do when doing this, and I still have SO much to learn but its one step at time and I've started doing small painting sketches for development work and also to introduce myself to painting. I realize that after a few minutes I've start painting, I start becoming less "conscious" about the overall picture and begin scrutinizing over futile details but I will try and be pro active about this and paint better in the rhythmic sketch I've done on canvas paper. Hahaha, I realized after doing this sketch that it was unnecessary to go through every facial rhythm as major planar ones are more significant in the lay in process, dumbass...

    Excellent work bro, your rendering of faces is really effective, i can tell that your aiming in the right direction.

    If you aiming for realism my only suggestion is that before you put down the strong colours and lines to accurately position all features, i noticed a few of the faces the key features are only slightly out of place something that i am also trying to work on. it is a strong artistic skill to forge.

    I really like you drawings of skeletons as they look accurate and strong with nice swooping lines

    if you need some advice on anything try these videos, they are both by the same guy the first one is much older but more basic as the second one is more painterly style way of drawing faces.

    keep strong bro you have good skill for 17 years and i feel i was in exactly the same posistion as you 3 years ago

    peace and love
