    Universal Inhabitant's Sketchbook

    Hello everyone!

    I'm a newbie artist and started getting "serious" about learning/practicing art a little over a year ago. During that time of getting "serious" about it I had done very little work.
    I was on and off (mostly off) and now I am looking to start anew. I am self teaching throughout the whole process. So I plan to add new stuff to my work load once I become at ease with
    the current work load and so on and so forth until I am unable to add anything else. I should hopefully post something new on a regular basis if all goes well.

    Hopefully this will be a good new start!

    I am going to start off by drawing at least one page of stuff a day that needs to consist of at least 1 drawing of a still life and/or a photo image. I mainly want to do digital art, but from what I hear it's best to start off with traditional media at first.
    So here's a charcoal drawing of a cardboard box cushion thingy to start it off.

    Wanted to see how much I could do within a certain timespan. At first I set it to 5 minutes but only got half the contour done so I bumped it up another 5 minutes to draw the car.

    From your sketches it's clear that you have a good eye for detailing.

    I recommend drawing through your objects, and really nailing those forms and how they exist in 3D space.
    A good habit is to draw the construction lines and break down the objects into their basic geometries, and with your detailing, they will really come to life.

    I also dig your pencil-work

    Trying to mess around with my scanners settings to find what works best. It doesn't seem to pick up very faint marks on the paper.

    I think I got the scanner to pick up more of the lighter values so that's good. Some quick sketches and a crab.

    Been wanting to start adding to my work load, but I'm probably going to wait until after the Christmas madness to do it.

    Here's yesterdays work due to the website being down for maintenance/server move and today's. I've started going back into a book I was using called The Natural Way to Draw by Kimon Nicolaides. I'm going to start off doing a hour & a half at first and bump it to 3 hours within a few days hopefully. I did a quick look over of the first chapter to refresh myself with the book. I am currently on the second chapter (schedule 2-D). I'll post only a couple of the works from each days work in the book. I used lined paper and both sides for the work in the book so far since you are to draw so many sketches, so sorry for their quality in advance.

    More weight and gesture exercises. Been using http://artists.pixelovely.com/ for all the figure images so far. Found a lot of public domain and creative commons stock image sites for all the other photo references. Decided to try out a Prismacolor marker I got awhile back on today's drawing and a little digital stuffs.

    More gesture and weight exercises and a still life in charcoal. I used a cotton swab to blend the charcoal drawing. Started back up into a website I found awhile back http://www.drawspace.com/ which has a free lessons section. Gonna do a lesson a day or as much as I can a day from there.
