    My sketchbook brings all the girls to the forums.........

    Time I start A SKETCHBOOOK!

    I'm starting a sketchbook since it's what everybody does on this forum and I follow the groups. I should probably introduce myself so: Hello, my name is Dennis and I'm a 16 year old kid from the Netherlands and I want to become concept designer bla bla you've read this story a million times already.

    Critique me to death and enjoy!


    Thank you for looking through my first bunch of drawings. You might think I never do excercises like skulls, anatomy, poses, but I do. I would have 300 photoshop files filled with this crap for you to watch if I didn't have had to restore my laptop. So you'll have to do with this crap instead.

    ( Drawings from first post are gone because I couldnt fix my thumbnail any other way then removing everything and just keeping the image for the thumbnail )

    -Dennis

    The detail on the Palazzo drawing is not something I would endure doing myself, kudos to your patience. The rose is also very good.
    However, for the figure you are working on, the guy with the sword, there is much to be improved.
    -Your approach to drawing the figure seems flawed. You should start with a gesture, a pose, make it into a mannequin, a framework so to speak and then add mass. It looks like you've just started with mass and that you're really unsure of what the body is doing beneath the clothes and muscle. for example, are you aware of the shape of the head beneath the hood? are you aware of where the knee is? What do all these muscles sit on?
    I think you would benefit greatly from doing life drawing or getting a good book on figure drawing.
    maybe Loomis' "Figure Drawing for all it's worth"
    or, a favourite of mine: "Figure Drawing: Design and Invention" by Michael Hampton

    oh and your cartoons are pretty cool
    See you in the Teen Challenge, I hope this was useful.

    Dam right it was useful, I normally don't draw figures in this matter and start with some sort of pose or skeleton, but I thought that this is te kinda speedy way to do it. Because for the most part I do line drawings, but I really want to learn that painty look where it is strokes with different brushes and its not lines, so what you see there is my first attempt at trying to do so

    Thanks for the link to your favourite book I've already checked it out and tomorrow I'll give it a complete read and I'll do different excercises.

    Thanks alot sure helped!

    This is my summary of the first 20 pages of the book and 2 A3 fulled with poses. I used a really nice website ( someone linked it on here somewhere ) that shows you a photograph for a minute in this case, so all of them were done in 60 seconds. Really enjoy this so far and I'm gonna continue on right now. Only 200 more pages to go!!

    thanks for the tip

    Thanks for the comment, I'm in school in now but ill do another 2 of these pages in a few hours!

    EDIT: Here they are. Again all done in one minute, but sometimes I just got the skeleton down in that time so some of them I came back to for another 25 seconds or so. I'm gonna do a few of 5-10 minutes now to get a bit more detail out.

    Here is a bit from the anatomy book about the spine.

    I used the same website and now I did a "lesson" with warming up and longer pictures the longer lessons take. So this is one I got 30 minutes for and I realise the arms are to long. But would love a revieuw from any of you

    nice job on the poses there! It looks to me like you're improving steadily!

    I'd like to suggest to you a rather old book (but incredibly useful) that deals with the human figure. It's called "How to Draw the Human Figure" by Jose M. Parramon. You may be able to find a copy at your local library or maybe find it somewhere online, but there's an interesting section that shows the front, side and back muscle anatomy of a healthy male.

    I read an interesting section in this book that said that Michelangelo puts a lot of emphasis on drawing the torso of the body first (before the head), and ever since I started drawing starting from the torso, my figure skills have improved a lot. Just something to consider!

    by the way, your drawing of the Palazzo Madame is very detailed! The time put into it is noticeable. Love it, and can't wait to see more of your work!

    p.s. the title of your sketchbook... ha!

    Thanks for the suggestion I tried ordering it from amazon but most of them dont ship to the netherlands, ans the one that does takes about a month to get here A dutch website has none in stock but Ill see or send them a mail to ask when they will be in stock again. Till then Ill continur with the book BDHD suggested. Thanks for the advice and comment!

    Hello man, good start to your sketchbook!
    You should go and have a look at proportions. Not only the stereotypical 7-8 heads but how much space the arms and legs take up etc. The arms of your gestures are almost so long that the hands would end at the knees sometimes. The wrist usually ends around the hips and the hands just bellow that, when the arm is stretched. The measurements will get easy and you wont really even think about it later on, but you do have to bash it into your own head lol.

    Good luck!

    Hey Mrkolsyrad,

    yes the hands are way to long, I should have started with a skeleton aswell. But I'll definetely check out some proportions for the sake of my poses. Still got along way in my 250 gesture/pose drawing book so I guess proportions will be a part of that aswell.

    Working on Teen Challenge, this week topic is a dark tower, so this is my work in progress. Need to keep up with fundamental practice aswell so I'll study some more pages of my figure drawing book and post some excercises later today. Any critic is welcome.

    Guten tag Herr kessel, welcome in here I like your bottom line,
    which is why I clicked in here it made me curious about your
    sketchbook. Nice stuff in here I like to spirits flying around.
    I love to draw things like that too.

    I would like to push your gestures a little bit, keep them in one
    line get more lose and play around with the weight of them. I did
    tons of them they are very useful.

    Thank you for your comment, I'm definetely doing more gesture drawing. With keeping them in one line do you mean, the whole figure? So the spine is more fluent than the ones that I've drawn so far. I will definetely try out to be more fluent.
