    kvick's sketches again

    Well, since it seems is potentially dead forever I need a place to put up some art D:

    I don't even know if I'm going to keep up with this sketchbook cause every time I say I will I tend to...... not lol

    I honestly don't paint much anymore either so there's that too, BUT IF I DO i'll post here.

    k so anyways:

    it's a shame you don't do much drawing anymore since the first wip guy has some potential. The area around the head and shoulder looks the biz.

    Thanks David!

    Also Thanks fireblade, yeah I dunno, I don't get as much enjoyment out of it as I used to, still do it from time to time but I've been trying to learn programming to make games and music a lot more lately. I like to still keep the skill from getting too rusty though.

    Here's another scifi guy sketch

    Thanks fefe

    Your figure drawings are looking very good! Keep working on those basic shapes and you'll be pro in no time.

    Two things, I planned on going to bed but ended up doing some perspective stuff, no real goal, just relaxing.

    CHV166: Thanks dawg

    Charles Ratteray: Thanks, you've got some great work as well!

    IsaacEs: Thanks Isaac, hope I can deliver


    So this is something a little different, I've always had issues with patience in my artwork, unlike programming or making music it's very difficult for me to get sucked into a painting or drawing these days, I get a lot of anxiety for some reason. So as a result I've always been pretty terrible at drawing in perspective which clashes with my desire to always improve my fundamental.s ( I guess you could argue that patience is the most fundamental skill of all )So I tried to do a study of a SINGLE BUILDING instead of going crazy like I used to and telling myself I'd do everything in a picture. And I realized a few things part way through doing this:

    Name:  building.jpg

    I realized if trying to be accurate as possible in perspective IT CAN TAKE FREAKING FOREVER and very often is not accurate after all the effort, or at least with my lack of understanding some underlying principles into calculating measurements stretched out in perspective.

    So I decided to try a new experiment, do an orthographic drawing and try to project it into perspective afterwards. So here's the beginning of this:

    Name:  OthoBldg_00.jpg

Size:  162.3 KB

    This took hours, I didn't expect it to take this long and I'm sure if I had duplicated more I could have found ways to speed up the process, but I wanted to make sure everything was measured and done by hand so I understood exactly what was going on with every piece.

    Up next, made a perspective grid with two points 90 degrees apart, cropped the orthogonal image and transformed it by lining it up with perspective lines. Behind and in front to understand it as a 3d object instead of a billboard-like representation:

Size:  128.7 KB
    Name:  OthoBldg_03.jpg
Views: 1284
Size:  122.9 KB

    Then this is where I stopped because.... I don't feel like drawing all day and night
    So basically it's just a wedge-like projection of the silhouette:
    Name:  OrthoBldg_01.jpg
Views: 1283
Size:  117.5 KB

    So yeah my finger hurts too for some reason, probably from smashing keys all day, so ima take a break on this for now, but i thought it was an interesting way to explore far out of my comfort zone trying to be as technical as possible.
