    Kat's Sketchbook - Eat, sleep, draw

    I am 21 years old, self taught, and my goal is to become a working concept artist in 2 years. First time drawing was Oct 2012-Apr 2013, only gesture drawings for character animation from time to time. May 2013 I decided to become a concept artist instead. I made a sketchbook here to help motivate and track my progress. Feel free to let me know what you think of my work, thanks !
    ----
    May 23, 2013: Here is work from when I first started drawing, and work I'm doing now.

    I got an awesome book called Art of Urban Sketching.
    It has taught me that it doesn't matter if you know how to draw well or not. You should just go outside and draw !
    Here are some sketches I did from life.
    They consist of kitchen, suburbs, bathroom, backyard, and my room.

    nice isometric perspective its good that you arent afraid of making bold strokes those are the ones that speak the most to the viewer, keep doing those plein air paintings im starting myself and while intimidating they also help you alot to loosen up, go to www.quickposes.com if you want to do a quick warm up or even a long figure session, theres also http://ctrlpaint.com/ keep on going i see great potential and remember it takes 10,000 hours to be an expert at anything and not phoney hours i mean hours of blood and sweat and real study always ask yourself the relations of space and size take a kitchen for example your reference point can be the stove and use that as a measure to measure the table the floor everything really and how big or small they are compared to the stove keep on going!

    also i recommend you to look for Jack hamms landscape and seascape drawing its a great book if you are interested in scenery

    Drawing from imagination is a good skill to develop, but remember drawing from imagination is really drawing from memory. Make sure you're keeping up with your life/reference studies as well Great sketchbook though!

    Very cool! The only thing I'd really point out at this point is that your lines seem shaky in different areas(with your outdoor and indoor observation drawings) I would suggest making bold passes with your lines instead of small line segments. I can see some development from the start of your sketchbook til your most recent post. Keep it up!

    Hi Kat. Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and the nice comment.

    Let's see if I can answer some of your questions.

    First of all, I'm doing design way longer than you =D. I studied Graphic Design, so I'm not 100% selfthought.
    Yes I know Peter Han and he is a great influence. His teaching really opened my mind about where the fundamentals really begin. In the past half year I drew dozens of pages with just lines, ellipses and that stuff to warm up. That really helps growing confidence. Next I would recomment you to do Basic form drawing (Scott Robertson!!). I did pages of just playing with forms. No subject matter at all. I think the key is to first learn how to draw and then what to draw.

    Some thought on anatomy: In my opinion anatomy is just a subject matter (WHAT to draw). And a really complex one. I myself learned a ton about it. I knew every important muscle by name and function. But it didn't help me to improve my drawing skills as fast as just drawing simple forms and slowly getting more complex.

    Hope I could be of some help to you. Keep it up!

    Paintings from reference except the grey one, that one is from imagination.
    The bottom left one I did from imagination but used reference for the blue robot.

    Lots of work going on! Well done! .. If I can help in any way. Clean up your lines. When you do your sketch, lower the opacity on the layer and then draw over with clean lines. Keep it up =]

    I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!

    Recently discovered Sinix. He has taught me so much about creativity and experimentation.

    Here's a study of skulls and imagination page.

    I'm really going to try to work on my creativity from now on.
