    Aaron Silverberg's Sketchbook

    Hey! My name's Aaron Silverberg, I'm 20 years old(*edit: now I'm 21), studying art from home. I'm starting this sketchbook as a way to keep track of my progress, share my work, and make friends with other artists. Feedback is appreciated!

    Ohh, really digging this sketchbook already. I will subscribe to this thread.
    I like your technique when using ink or pencil, it makes the pictures look alive, like the lines are swarming.

    I love the sinuous smooth lines of your studies and that tree in your first post is mind-blowing! Is it from reference??

    @chevy Thanks man! @ Kuroro Thanks you! That tree drawing was half from life, half from photo ref.

    Here are a few Ipad color studies from life! I used the app ProCreate to paint these.

    Those still lifes are awesome man, the first one especially, captured the colour and light really well, I think it would help to really push some of these to more of a rendered state, it's nice to see lots of work being done, but I think being fast comes later, maybe spend a few days on a piece and see how far you can take it?

    All the best and keep it up man!

    Wow, great stuff Aaron! - I love it that you let go of the lines, giving a sense of life to the subjects & your feeling on the forms is very well educated. Also your experiments outside of the illustrator realm - all in all works that have some soul behind - Keep doin what you are doin on your vibrant works

    Man I really like that skeleton from your last post, and the illustration looks nice, I think the composition is a bit claustrophobic? and there could be a greater scale between the people and the boss/monster.

    Keep it up man
