    Mako-chan's sketchbook

    Hi everyone, I'm Mako-chan. This will be my sketch book. Be gentle though because I am still a (unmotivated x_x) beginner. I don't update daily, well, because of my mood. Sucks a lot, but I totally wish I don't need motivation to do art, like, just go and paint. D: A lot of areas I need to work on.

    Anyway, constructive criticisms, tips and guides are loved!

    @OakLeaf - Thank you for the welcome!


    This was drawn the time I drew the Loomis (^ above post). Dated around July this year. Head study from my imagination and a bit from what I learned. Couldn't really grasp Loomis' method though I keep on reading and trying to understand

    Another set of scribbles! I guess I won't be moving on to the other parts unless I've understand the head structure. I think there are a lot of factors that'll be affecting this esp. on where the shadows/ light hits X_X

    These drawings are from tutorials. Top two from Dragoart and the last from idrawgirls. I think I ruined Batman's image. He looks so gay here! Sorry!

    Started using a pen since it is sharper for me. Hehe. Anyway, I always have fun whenever I draw eyes! I also wanted to achieve a human body but I think mine turned anime-ish like. You can see there are curvy and straight lines. Idk i just feel like drawing them. lol
    These are of course, from imagination and what I learnt!

    This time, I started using real life objects as references. I live in a commercial place, especially being surrounded by hardwares. Objects spotted in my drawing, just in case you can't distinguish (since i pretty much draw them anywhere. dont really care about overlapping or something hehe). There are also a few scribbles!

    Back again to scribbles. There are few blank faces cuz I feel so disappointed lol *sighs* Wanting to draw human faces - the fashion designer way! Or those who dont shades in order to look human. Yep. There are also a quick figure study, from a photo ref.

    I did a value study (7 tones). This is by the way my very very very first digital paint (portrait). It totally doesn't look like the original (lol) but I'm satisfied nevertheless! Please don't mind the hair and the cloth. I had trouble with these two especially the texture. And the eyes, ah it's so flat ; u; /4.5 hrs painting/

    if you still have trouble understanding the loomis method I think I know something that may help you. Basically, the method (and pretty much any other approach to drawing a head that i've seen) relies a lot on understanding proper perspective.

    http://crashdummynl.deviantart.com/a...-V1-1-80130317

    pose this in various angles and draw it, watch how it gets affected as it moves from place to place. i still dont understand perspective THAT well but after doing that I got the hang of it a little better. obviously you should supplement this with books like Norling's (i forget what his book is called), there's also a thread on CA somewhere about the subject which i'll link to when i find it. you will find that when you understand perspective better a cube/planes in space positioned correctly solves a lot of problems.

    I had a perspective class before but the prof doesn't really discuss it and we're more into basics. I don't really know if you mean perspective like do I have to get materials (such as T-square and stuffs) or freehand? Anyway I am also trying to find a geometric structure of the skull. I think I understand better that way? Anyway Thank you for the tip!

    I mean freehand, you don't really need t-squares in most cases as drawing a relatively straight line should be something an artist is capable of doing. Perspective mostly means things appear smaller or change appearance depending on the angle you look at them from. We've more or less had that broken down into simple rules for centuries, in the renaissance people like leonardo or michelangelo were already very aware of it.

    If you want another example of how perspective works that might be easier to understand try picking up a piece of paper with a drawing on it and then rotate it in front of you. Notice how the paper begins to converge to one point and how the drawings are affected by the angle you're viewing them from. that's perspective.

    Another study I made. Photo ref, a sculpture. Something's wrong with the angle thus affecting almost everything >.> I'm looking up now to the still life photos. Ahh I wanna try painting characters too! Soon soon soon

    Thank youu~~ I'm bad with foreshortening (the root = bad at perspective too) so I think practicing diff angles would totally help

    A dragon's head (skeleton/ skull) study. It's getting interested!! Going to find more references for study and visual library!! I also need to be consistent with the brush strokes and work more on blending

    Done this to study the perspective and light/shadow. It is quick and super basic, but I needed this for a better understanding.

    This is a quick study, however when I did this, I am slowly beginning to understand the structure of the nose & eyes, and the placement of shadows/ light. Thanks to my reference, who's sitting beside me; so you could say it's model-reference. The values are also based on the model. I'll keep on doing this unfinished profile/ faces paintings or study until it is human looking (lol)
