    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.

    Hey there Braydan, lovely posts so far, I like how you're placing figures beside or inside your structures as they give a lot more information about the scale, buildings are a weakpoint of mine! You also have a strong sense of depth , the placement of your shadows reflects the shape of your structures nicely - brill work keep them coming and all the best on your course

    @Misty Feather @Alex DL @Akora Thank you for your viewing and enjoying my sketchbook!

    @Topherason Thank you! Really been drilling into perspective recently but still so much more to learn, sadly my other fundamentals are rather bad! Glad you enjoyed viewing.

    Finished my second year of architecture school so I had no time to practice and produce my own stuff, no excuse now. Long time since I last updated (6 months?) so here's a small sketch dump;

    A few life studies/sketches.

    Small Update; mostly form sketching and perspective fundamentals.

    Scott Robertson's 'How to Draw' really is pretty amazing and recommend to all!

    Lovely pen sketches! By the way, I noticed you use textured paper. What kind of paper are those. Since the graphite looks fairly nice on it.

    You've already got some great work in this sketchbook, which is still in its early stages. I especially like the Moroccan tannery designs, very cool!

    Im looking forward to seeing how you progess, good luck.

    @Brianhermelijn Thank you I don't really use any interesting paper, just the regular sketchbook standard, pretty smooth!
    @Mothman Thanks, lets hope I do progress!

    A few sketches putting the form drawing techniques into practice, with reference. So much perspective construction

    Wow, I wish I drew this well when I was 19. Nice work. I'm looking forward to some epic work!

    Slow progress, but progress nonetheless...

    Those are all amazing Braydan! I am deeply DEEPLY envious of your grasp on perspective. Did you go about teaching it to yourself? Or do you have perspective classes in school? I am not much familiar with architecture as a course so excuse me if my question seems silly!

    Your linework is soooo nice too.

    And that orange---truly good enough to eat .
