    Tosmo's Sketchbook

    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 pencil hit paper...

    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.

    *editted to contain all the pic from first post

    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

    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.

    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 alot Misty Feather, your work is still coming along everyday as well

    A few more sketches for the week. I've been moving into drawing volume with both Scott Robertson's How to Draw book, and basic perspective DVD. Definitely need more practice, but it coming along well.

    Not much to show for the last few weeks, 1 CHOW entry, a few thumbnails, and a sketch I did for some renovation ideas in my room. I have some stuff in the works for different challenges, in addition to some StartUp comp 1.1 studies.

    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.

    Thanks for the vid pinduski. Learning to render different textures and materials has been one of my major objectives in design. I've been meaning to get to it for a long time. You also reminded me that I want to buy SR's "How to Render" book

    A few sketches from the last few weeks.

    has been a while since I have posted much of anything on here... New job has had me pretty busy the last few month.

    I sorted through a lot the scraps and experimental stuff I have done in the last few months. Since my time has usually been pretty limited I mostly stick to sketching, and don't have much time to go through a lot of reference.

    Nice design work, especially the tree planter. Also it's great to see such dedication to the fundamentals, it will all pay off in time

    Hey, I find your style very cool! I like the way you draw your ideas and the concepts you've done.

    Good studies too! Keep that up!

    I like how you see enviroment, really nice. I think you need some much more practice in anatomy, on a real people. Scetching in buses And you expresions work looks more living, give freedom you hand But not much

    Great to see you practicing the human form! Some still life studies wouldnt hurt either to help with conveying different materials and overall pen accuracy.

    Keep it buddy, I look forward to seeing more
