    Raedrob's Sketchbook

    Hey there,
    I'm relatively new when it comes to art,
    I started out with very basic stuff almost two years ago, but have started to
    do studies etc at a brisker pace this summer (I took part in Noah Bradley's Art Camp, if you've heard of it).

    Up until now I've mostly done digital stuff,
    whenever I jump into acrylics or oil I get stressed out much more easily.
    Conceptart.org is very new to me, but the amount of talented people here have
    convinced me to try being a part of this community. I am still very much a rookie,
    and will appreciate any comments or critiques I may get if you feel like letting me know where I'm struggling the most.
    I'll also try to dedicate some time to help out others whenever I find something I'm able to help with.

    As for what I'll be posting here, expect pretty much anything. I'll try to post studies, both anatomy and colour,
    as well as personal work where I hopefully manage to apply some of my studies.

    Here's the first bunch of stuff, done in the last couple of days.
    Some figures, colour study from life and a couple finished pieces.

    More studies done today,
    trying to get into a daily routine and
    hopefully it won't be ravaged by school starting up on Monday.

    Sweet stuff! I was going to say to try and bring some play on cold and warm colours into your work, and it looks like the studies will help you do that because I see a nice hold of it here:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1376601968 < veeery nice
    Good job with the studies, and I think that with the gestures you should work towards drawing over lines less, because that beginner's uncertainty of redrawing and scratching in lines over and over for no good reason or gain stays with us until we believe in ourselves enough to conquer it
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1376549730 I really like how you handled the pony in the light here, quite pretty.
    Keep it up

    Muddy, good pointers there, I'll make sure to keep them in mind.

    I got lazy with the studies today, for numerous reasons.
    At the very least I got something done, I'm really sorry if you don't like ponies.

    Hey man thanks alot for stopping by my sketchbook! Sorry it took so long to respond. Still seeing alot of great progress from you. YOu did some killer work over at the artcamp. Liking the anatomy studies. I would tyr to learn about where each muscles connects to the bone. It really helps understanding anatomy that way. Also taking account which muscles are extensor and which are flexor. My spelling sucks hahha Keep going man!!!

    Muddy and Joe, thanks for the feedback. I'll make sure to remember it as I go.
    There's been few studies lately due to moving and stuff.
    I'm doing a project on the side tho, so sorry if you don't like ponies. There's a bunch of them incoming.

    I did some studies today, but got cut off pretty early due to sudden sleepyness. I'll go catch some rest.

    Here's some recent stuff.
    I tried to do something for the EoW for the first time this week.
    I started way too late, but it was fun.

    SgtBubbles, totally missed your comment! Thank you for taking the time to look at my SB =)

    The monthly long "a pony a day" thing is coming to an end, so more variation in the future, probably.
    Maybe.

    I try to do some gesture stuff every day before I do other stuff, and I keep the actual sessions
    to 30 sec each pose. I tried 60 sec each for the first time in very long, and it felt very weird.

    I've started to work on EoW and I've realised the fact that I'm a very unpatient person when it comes
    to making art. I tend to look at my stuff in disgust even if I haven't poured many hours into it at all.
    If there's something I must work on most of all it's discipline and patience. Both of which are very
    important if I am to make it to where I want to be.

    Thanks, Joseph. I'm trying to keep on pushing forwards!

    The monthly long pony thing's come to an end, so more other stuff after this last batch.
    Here's some gestures and the finished EoW piece for this week =)

    FIrst time posting traditional work, I do it so rarely. These two pieces were done for a class assignment.
    Trying to do some of everything, gestures, anatomy and colour and light.
    Any tips when it comes to making interesting poses when doing gestures from imagination?

    yow raedrob! love the ponies! hehe. also, good to do all those different fields. oh, and dont forget perspective! it is easy and hard at the same time.. but so so important, espec in figures. love your gestures too btw. ah. a tip on how to think of poses? I usually try to think of a subject, or a character (can be comic, live-action, whatever). that gives you a frame or reverence, and your imagination should do the rest :p

    Ashes, thanks for the tips. I should definitely look into perspective. I don't think I've sat down and really studied it yet
    Been doing lots of different stuff lately.
    I want to focus some on heads, as I wanted to do a portrait earlier, but realized I don't know how to do it proper.
    It ended with me looking up on some Loomis and I'll try to do some head exercises regularly.
    I'm also clumsily messing around with simple animation. Almost the entire weekend have consisted of me working in flash

    Awesome gestures and keep 'em up! Love seeing the little studies/sketches of the structure of the head. Very important stuff!

    If I may make a small plug for traditional mediums (acrylics, oils, etc). Don't make yourself so stressed out that art becomes miserable, but a good time to get into them is now, when you're developing. You don't want to be one of those artists who is fab at digital but awkward at traditional. (Feel free to ignore if you're certain you only ever will do digital!)

    Celadon, thank you very much! I have fiddled a little bit with traditional mediums, but it's the digital scene that really sparks my interest.
    The reason may of course be the fact that I have so little experience with acrylic, oils etc that it scares me away. The fundamentals are the same regardless, so that shouldn't be the reason.

    Muddy, thanks! I'm trying to be somewhat diverse in the studies and to apply them a little bit at the very same time I'm doing 'em. It seems to have worked in my favour so far.

    Joseph, cheers =) Going through that load again would certainly make you improve even more than the first time. I'd consider doing that myself, but I don't think I'll be able to give
    sufficient attention to it this time around, with school taking up lots of time and stuff.

    Here's some more pretty basic stuff. Trying to learn the planes of the head and improving gestures.
    I've also been working more on this short animation. I'm hoping to upload the rough sometime this week.

    I've dedicated quite some time the past week to some Loomis studies, they've helped a great deal so far, and I'm planning to keep it going.
    I've also been dabbling with animation and you can find the rough cut of a little clip I've been working on below.
    Soooo many hours are poured into that animation already, I'm not very efficient at this point as I have no experience with animation from earlier.

    hi readrob cool animation. your faces were driving me mad though; are you drawing in the underlying ball first, and putting up the equator lines? im getting a lot of skewed and flattened features when I checked.

    Wow nice studies! I think it's awesome that you both can do imaginative pony drawings and human bodies. You do awesome gestures too.
    I think you should continue practicing the heads and the proportions, use references once in a while. And try to use traditional tools

    Ashess, I do start off with the ball, but am still struggling with the basic construction of the head. I've tried to be a bit more careful.

    Carro, thanks a lot! I'm definitely working more on heads, it's something that's really handy to do well. I have some done as quick sketches in pencil between classes, I could upload those next.

    Here's a bunch of different stuff I've been doing lately. When I first started practicing head construction it was so I hopefully could do justice to that Mikasa portrait.
    I've wanted to do some Attack on Titan stuff for a while, but my heads were nowhere near where I wanted 'em to be in order to be comfortable trying something like this.
    I even ended up doing a quick study to wrap my mind around the jacket a little bit easier.
    Due to lots of school work the coming week I'll probably get less time to do studies and the likes, but I'll try to squeeze in some time.
