    Marzka's Sketchbook

    I've been drawing for 3 years now. They were mostly doodles and comics to burn off all the story ideas I had. I've mostly only used pen due to this but I've recently started taking art seriously and I'd really like to improve.

    I'll update this as often as I can. I'm mostly making this so I can look back and see improvement but I'd love any advice anyone has to offer.

    Without further ado...

    I did this one is much less time than the frog. It was for a request of a "Steampunk plant". It was hard to find an idea to encompass the two ideas!

    This was for a /soc/ drawthread on 4chan. The nose is too big, I'm reading some Loomis at the moment to improve my people drawing.

    Another from the drawthread. The guy said "awesome, thanks!" but I think the eyes and mouth are a bit off, among other things.

    Attempt at drawing Kevin Spacey. Even though proportions are off in both, the second attempt is far more accurate.

    Quick idea upon finishing "The Picture of Dorian Gray". Perspective off and lazy, not much to say.

    Upon reading a tutorial of doing chainmail, I did a bunch. Here's one of a chainmail glove.

    It's really hard to get the illusion of metal!

    My little brother playing computer games. I believe drawing from life is much better than from a photo, you get a better idea of space(even if that idea doesn't end up being conveyed)

    The one on the top right was drawn from memory. The numbered ones were drawn from pictures. The remaining one was drawn from reference but isn't actually a picture.

    This was done from memory after I had done all those studies.

    I like this method, it's really good for building a visual library.

    I tried a bear from memory at the top. It was embarassingly bad. The rest were the first few studies I did. I did a few more and tried again from memory but it was bearly better.

    Getting back to gesture drawings. I like Vilippu's style of doing it but I feel it doesn't held much with understanding of landmarks.

    I'm not quite sure if I should go with a landmark-orientated style or a 'flowy' style...

    The first one if of Heath Ledger's Joker. I tried to make the lines shaky and the shading messy to illustrate the feeling of insanity. I don't think it came across as that...
    The second one was an experimentation with shadow. I was trying to see how I could make a shadow go from very dark to dark using a fine-tip pen.

    A cup from life and imagination. As you can see from the numerous restatements, my perspective needs a lot of work.

    My hand. I really went overboard with the shading.
