Thread: Artplur's Sketchbook
April 17th, 2014 #1
Hi everyone! :) Today is exactly two months since I've started a sketchbook here on CA and I decided it's time to write something on this first post. I'm 28 at the end of this month and I've been drawing on and of for 2-3 years. Last 2 months I've decided to start drawing seriously and with heart. In the weekdays I work as an application engineer. I'm NOT happy with that situation, but maybe I can change that with time. My real passion is drawing! and I say it's better late then never, I'll figure it out as I go. Internet is my teacher and I have absolutly no formal art education. The reason I started a sketchbook here was to track my progress and get in touch with the art community. I'm hoping to get some useful tips and suggestions from you guys. My goal is to keep drawing!

Line and shape studies. I want to start with digital soon, but I need to save up for a tablet first.

If you want it, pursue it! Fuck those ignorant fools who dare to question your awesomeness and what ever it is that you want to do!

Nice sketches/Studies. I should probably do some perspective practice myself. Keep it up
April 26th, 2014 #17
I'm surprised I manage to get the lines so straight without a ruler! ^^

Some stick figures from imagination

Hey, mate! Nice stuff in here! You're moving quite well. I really like the fact that you're paying attention also to line and shape studies and also perspective. I for one don't, but really need to -_- Good luck with collecting cash for your tablet and keep going forward

Thanks everyone! It really gives me inspiration when I get some feedback. It actually helps me alot! I've decided to get deep into perspective for some time to get a solid understanding.. I feel its such an essential and important skill to have and it will be useful to me down the road! here are some warm up free sketched cubes to begin with. Keep drawing!

Awesome studies, it's nice to see that you give importance to the basics, I have just one tip, when drawing female breasts, think them as water balloons, try to understand how gravity affect them, because otherwise they will seem like just balls attached on the body.
Sorry for the bad english

Nice studies, I also liked what you were doing in your earlier posts with line quality and those squiggly shapes. And I like your dedication to perspective- most people try to escape it, you run towards it to master it!- That's the spirit!

Todays practice consisted of an almost complete dice rotation done freehand, a perspective ground plane, experimenting with building groundplane and rotating objects 45 degrees on it. And some anatamoy and figure doodles. I'm thinking that it may be wise for me to alternate between two subjects so I dont get to hung up on one single subject. It will also keep it more interesting. I'm thinking that human anatomy/proportions and perspective will be my focus. What do you guys think?

Skethces from today. I feel like I'm in a good place now, and that I'm learning new stuff!

Really nice sketches! Keep it up, and keep drawing heads. I got a tip on this site, and that was to check out Andrew Loomis and how he draws heads. (youtube) I thought it was very helpful, so maybe you'll think so too!

Hello I think others have already voiced my thoughts before me - keep study the basics, this is the right way
Sorry for my bad English
