decided it was time to get off my bum and start doing proper sketching everyday instead of doing half an hour of gesture drawing and calling it a day. i thought starting a sketchbook thread would be a great motivator to draw every day, and also a good chance to get some feedback. I'm always looking to improve, and it's pretty easy for me to get lost and not really know what i should be working on.
anyways, my background: I started drawing for serious about 8 months ago. before that I had only a fleeting interest in improving, like to the tune of 1-2 drawing per -YEAR-. ridiculous! but back in September-ish, i was really into coding, and wanted to make a simple, but super-stylish game on my own, and went down the rabbit hole of art, and now here i am.
and so we begin. the longest journey starts with a single faceplant, or something like that.
some doodles from yesterday. my brother gave me a single yellow marker, so i had some fun with that. i love the little prison man, i wish he picked up better on the scan, my scanner is too small for my sketchbook XD
hehe thats normal with the tablet ^^ just do some line exercises ( drawing circles and curves, lines etc...) quick and slow. it helps for the sketches: you ever learned anatomy stuff? your bodies are looking gud
thanks for the advice, man. ill try that out. time to pump out hundreds of circles . for anatomy, i've done a bit, nothing really extensive. but i do loads and loads of gesture drawing, i'ts one of my favourite things.
i found this super fine .01 mm pen in my room. i don't remember getting it, but i fooled around with it and it was mad fun. i gotta go cop some more of these. just doodles today, nonsense to get a feel for this new pen. nothing too serious.
a little bit of photo ref practice with the cool little pen. maybe i'll try some digital stuff today. i've been doing some quick gesture drawing on the tablet for the past few days to help get my hands moving right. i suppose we'll see if it's working soon enough.
oh, also! before i forget, heres a little bonus. when i first stumbled on conceptart.org a few months ago, i decided to try my hand at a chow. it didn't turn out too hot, but i love the pose on the first girl. i'm all about dat movement, yo. still, it's cool to go back and see how you've progressed every once and a while.
