    Braydan // [An Architect's Sketchbook]

    Hey all!

    I'm a second year Architecture student with an interest in concept & industrial design!

    There are so many great artists on this forum that has inspired me to create my own sketchbook. Though I'm no way near the standard of many...

    I am mostly self-taught, I have some drawing experience and currently grinding through those fundamentals. I am much stronger working traditionally than digitally, though I'm still trying to make that transition.

    Any advice / direction for my work would be amazing! Thanks & enjoy

    I have started a new traditional sketchbook; pencil & ink. I'll post yesterdays doodles...

    Good luck with the 10,000 hour journey, and thanks for dropping in to my sketchbook. I'll do some applied sketches soon. Also, if you are currently using Posemaniacs for your figure studies, someone recommended Pixellovely to me instead.

    @sus.thai Thank you. I've just checked out Pixelovely and it looks awesome, definitely going to utilize it.

    Some sketches from last night: tonal figure sketches & perspective constructions.

    Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook.

    Looking good so far
    I'm envious of how accurate your construction and perspective is. Some lovely stuff on your tumblr as well. Keep it up!

    @Ethnax Thank you I try to deconstruct the subjects as if they were models, but I don't know whether this makes my drawings look too rigid...

    @Jovilicious Thanks man!

    @Smilingmountain No problem, and I appreciate it

    Update from last night's sketches. I have a new obsession for insects and contouring. Going to be working on figures and complex forms in perspective for a while. C&C welcomed!

    @Jpoy Thanks man! was really just an experiment but I'm hoping to make a half-decent illustration soon that runs with a similar idea

    Quick update; no real grinding studies, just a few fun sketches/drawings over the x-mas period.
    Finally got hold of some decent pens => Pilot G-Tech-C4 (0.4)

    Cheers and C&C encouraged

    Great stuff! I love your use of perspective and the organic hand drawing is super cool. I don't have much critique for now; keep it up and keep branching out

    Looks amazing woow, what do you mean with not near the standard of many. Fk them and their standards, your work is amazing. The still life is beautiful, and as everyone said the way you draw the construction and perspective lines is really good.

    Ma Sketchbook brings all the girls to the forums, damn right its worse than yours.

    Continued...

    Some uni work sketches. For anyone that's interested, I'm redesigning a new infrastructure for a traditional Moroccan tannery located in Fez.
