    Sixten's Sketchbook

    Hello,

    Have been drawing a lot, but not realistically, now I am interested in getting the basics down. Comments appreciated! Hope this sketchbook here will be part of keeping me motivated.

    All from life. I am interested in what is an efficient way to learn. I recently learned figuring out value is most important. So I guess I will leave the color alone for a while.

    Thanks Minella! Here a few more things. I am trying to feel out the values with a 0 to 10 scale, and some deduction. Not sure if this is the way to go. I am not covering the whole range from black to white yet, but then again it is not what I am seeing also ...

    Trying to be slow and really looking. That is hard.

    Thanks Astrikos!

    One more, a bit more of a challenge. More elements etc. Drawn from life, photo is just a reminder.

    Copy from the experts - Velázquez - Portrait of Don Luis de Gongora y Argote. Let's see how patient I am - so far 1h of work. I also made a sketch first, which is not in the image, but took most of the time.

    Here we go. About one hour more of work. I'd like to be more decisive in the details, but I cannot control the software well enough yet. Strokes often do not come out, like I want them to be.

    At first I thought the painting is rather loose, but it actually is not so much - every shade in the original has a meaning and describes a form. Also: the don has a don on the forehead ... ahem.

    This sketchbook is really impressive, started only 2 days ago and already 12 replies. Its good to see that youre drawing from real life, this is definitely one of the best to learn how to draw. Youre focussing on values right now and a good trick to see if your values match your drawings is a photoshop filter. Im not sure what its called but ill search and edit this post. Its under filters and then the onr with the blocks. This has really helped me a great bunch in seeing values. Your work looks very promising but it would be nice if you could tell a bit more about yourself, how old are you? Are you studying at the moment? What would you like to become or be in 5 years? Great work so far and your on the right track for rapid improvements!

    like those studies, you can see a clear definition between shadow and light.

    thank you delayedpleasures and Buxu.

    Dennis: Thanks a lot! I read about the filter-thing in a PDF somebody had compiled of Craig Mullins' post on sijun. The PDF can be found here. They were talking about the mosaic filter I think ... This document is generally a very interesting read. All out of context and no images and at this point I only understand 20% of it, but nevertheless ...

    About myself: I see stuff in my mind, that I cannot draw / paint ... so I want to get better to get these things out. I have been winging it for a while, but I feel the lack of foundation is limiting me. About the pace of this sketchbook: I have a little time on my hand at the moment to make things and post them, it might be different soon. But until then: full force.

    Thanks for your interest!

    This time the going was a bit more tough ... Some odd things also with perspective. Reality is somehow more isometric, than my imagination of it.

    I once went to buy macaroni and came back with no macaroni, a new tablet, and monitor, so yeah, I can be impulsive.

    Thanks Minella! I see you are also going for the basics in your sketchbook - keep it up. I don't even find it particularly boring to do them.

    Nevertheless ... Here is an injured crusader ... I am still lost half of the time, when I think of these values. :-/

    Those are pretty nice, but.. just some little input on your vehicles: in strong perspective the effective lines get larger the stronger the angle from the horizon line is.. if they don't it looks a bit like the vehicle is curved as if following a ball instead of being viewed out of a certain perspective. Hope that makes sense to you So to say if the angle is the same as the individual horizonline.. well actually that means 90° from way it faces.. or well if the line is facing away from us in the most direct way, it will be smallest.
    Haha, sort of weird to explain it. You might already know it, but that's what makes your last vehicle look somewhat weird.
