Hi, I've been snooping around this site for a while now, and thought it was about time I posted my sketchbook. I would appreciate any feedback, advice, critique, especially any study or reading suggestions.
So far this is what happens when my pen/pencil hits the paper.
wow you got some really nice designs!! How long have you been doing this?
These are all from late 2013 to now. The first few are from a small sketchbook I would sneak into college classes to draw in, the rest are from my regular sketchbook.
Here are a few more studies and fun sketches from this week. I also recently bought Scott Robertson's "how to draw" book, I'll consider posting some of the general design and perspective practice I'm doing this coming week.
If I can give a tip, I would advise you to spend more time in the "construction" of your drawings, this is the step where you should see if all parts of the drawing are well positioned and making sense.
But your drawings are great! All you need is keep practicing!
Sorry for the bad english
Wow, such a multitude of sketches! Great start! Keep 'em coming.
Well the last week wasn't all that productive, had a lot of stuff get in the way. However, looking through other peoples sketchbooks really seem to get me motivated, so I am going to be hitting it hard again this week.
I've been reading and following along with Scott Robertson's How to Draw book trying to improve drafting and design skills... I have a lot to learn. I also did some anatomy studies by drawing some quick gestures of poses from pixelovely, and trying to drawing the skeletal form over them with out looking at the original photos. The result were... messy... but not bad.
Apparently I'm obsessed with eggs
Woo hoo! Nicely awesome sketchy practice madness! Keep it going, keep it going, GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooo
Thanks a lot for the comments everyone, here are a few more sketches. I feel I am trying to cover too much at once, and not learning enough about any one subject. I think I will try to focus on studying just one or two subjects a week to try and commit them to memory before I move on.
Wow, amazing studies. You're really grasping everything so quickly-- It's inspiring. The fish eye lens looks pretty accurate. What's it mean!? Really cool. Love the mushrooms.
Anyway, all you can do is your best, and keep shooting for the target!
Thanks for stopping by my SB. Scott Robinson did a good video describing the fresnel effect (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RYAwz9SzZ0) effect when it comes to rendering objects which would be very applicable to your sphere renders. You should check it out! Keep up the good work.
