    Sketchbook of things and stuff

    Sketches fun and adventure!
    Critiques, insults and pistol duel challenges are welcome.


    My first bumbling attempts at portrait drawing show my early incorrect assumption that it would be a good idea to emphasize form by adding black outlines.

    These two pieces showcase what it looks like if one 1: does not know how to draw facial features, and 2: does not know how to place them correctly.

    So the next logical step was to practice said features.

    Another portrait that would fit the category 'nice try'.
    All these paintings are from the beginning of the year. Around January- February.

    There actually existed a partly rendered version of this one but in the middle of drawing i got so frustrated i deleted it. The structure of the lips is so bad it made her look like an Orang-Utan every time i tried to render them.

    And speaking of Orang-Utans, the drawings above where to be followed by this abomination.

    After the failure above i concentrated on learning to understand the underlying structure of the face so i wouldn't have to rely on luck while placing the facial features. The result of my efforts was this drawing.

    Even though the reference was CLEARY a woman i was quite happy with the outcome. It seems like i drew a handsome man instead of a woman.
    It was definitly time to study how to make a face more feminine.

    Figuring out how to draw a face unmasculine seems to have worked out. The rendering is very sloppy and doesn't work in many parts but at least this time i didn't make a man out of a woman.

    Not much to say on these three. It's a happy black woman, a woman with a creepy look and a black gentleman with a sloppy rendered hat.

    The fact that the woman on my last drawing looks like an old school teacher of mine makes me uncomfortable to say the least.

    Awesome studies Tiggeraz! You´re making quick progress with the structure in your head drawings and your values are spot on. I really like the study in post #12. Don´t forget to have some fun and invent some heads of your own.

    Thank you! I was quite pleased with #12 as well.
    At the moment i am not confident enough to draw heads with a full value range on my own but i will try it in the near future.

    Your control of value is amazing, and your rendering is quite nice! It looks as if you're using just the default round brush, which makes it even more impressive. Have you tried to experiment with textured brushes and color? I think those will be your next steps. Keep it up!

    My Sketchbook, please give me critique!

    Thank you

    Yes, i only use the default round brushes because i wanted to build a solid foundation of form and value first before i start to spend time on texture brushes and color.
    I've seen a lot of drawings where the artist tried to distract from his/her fundamental flaws by overusing texture and effects and i didn't want that to happen. But i will try out different textures in the future for sure!
    And concerning color, i will stay away from this topic for a while.

    Great work so far. I would say that you should defiantly work on ensuring that you convey form in the very early gesture phases of the work. I notice in some of your gesture work, things seem a bit flat and the mass in those figures isn't as evident as it could be. When you carry that into more develop work you have figures that are out of proportion, aren't following the correct perspective an otherwise drop off into the uncanny valley.

    There is improvement here and as frustrating as it is to not have things come out quite right, yor sense of humor is awesome.

    See my Sketchbook!!!!!!!!

    And my blog

    Thank you for your comment. I usually do these quick gesture sketches just to warm up, i have no intention to draw more developed figures. But thanks for the advice anyways!

    While involved in a minor argument recently, i was accused that i have never drawn a full body. So here are some drawings to prove the opposite. Please notice that these drawings where done last year.
    I don't concentrate on drawing figures right now.
