    Shifty's sketchbook

    Hey guys, started attending life drawing sessions a few months ago, here are a few older drawings. My scanner sucks, so the contrast is kinda whack.

    Just some quick sketches from imagination. Trying to clean up my lines a bit.

    More recent life drawing stuff, playing around with a brush pen and ink, as well as trying to sharpen up my linework.

    Yet more life drawing stuff. I think the male inked ones are a little dull, I roughed them out in pencil first instead of just going at it.

    Hello Shifty, I like your life drawings. I think that the ink wash drawing of the women laying on her back is really nice. It has a really strong sense of light that adds some drama to the overall image and the light creates a nice eye flow from from the face to the upper torso and finally off the shin. The pencil studies are nice as well and there is some nice use of hatching. Looking good!

    Thanks DGRSmithJr, I agree, that drawing is one of the better ones, they set up some nice lighting at the drawing session on that occasion.

    Just a quick sketch of some fantasy armour, the proportions are a bit off as I went straight into rendering instead of laying anything out first. I regret adding the stitches, the idea of a kind of living bone armour seems more interesting to me. Name:  WP_20130720_002.jpg

    I really like your brush and ink drawings, especially the clothed models. Did you lay in a light pencil sketch first? Or did you get straight to the inking?

    Thanks CarlaPrada. The two male inked ones I roughed out the overall shape with pencil, the rest I went straight to ink. I focused a little too much on getting those two accurate, I don't think they look as dynamic.

    I like your living bone armor sketch. You should flesh out that concept some more to see where you can go with it. Personally, I think that the eyes on the helmet is nice and the opening for the person inside looks like a mouth. Maybe it'd be interesting to see that mouth idea repeating in other places on the armor. I can see it a little in the abdominal region but maybe exaggerating it more and maybe putting it on the shoulder going into the arm, the arm going into the hand in a kinda gauntlet. Just a thought. Nice work, I really like it.

    More life drawing. I've been working on linework and colour, which I think are my biggest weaknesses. It was pretty rough for the first couple of sessions, but I think now I'm making some progress. I think I'm getting better at drawing hands as well.

    More colour experiments and a couple of cross contour type drawings, and of course some pen and brush. Swapping styles so often doesn't seem to help, I might try to stick to one style for the next couple of sessions.

    Stuff from imagination, minus the two old guys which is from a photo reference. Pretty happy with my line style, just don't seem to be able to apply it to life drawing. Also some cross contour practice and clothing/character design.

    Life drawing again. Not super happy with my recent efforts, but there were a few good ones. Focusing on lines at the moment, in particular trying to keep faces loose and not terrible at the same time.

    Various sketches; anatomy practice, colour practice, angry hand practice. Pretty happy with some of the linework faces.
