    Hurt Me Plenty - Sketchbook by Principe Daemoniorum

    With exams over and lots of otherwise unproductive free time on my hands, I've decided that now is a better time than ever to start up a sketchbook.

    I plan to do A-level Art and Graphical Design to help build a portfolio, though I will do work outside of school to make sure it's not just school work. However I'm not sure about doing art as my school only teaches BTEC Extended Art instead of A-level, I have no idea what implications that could have.

    I've done GCSE Graphical Design and while I don't have results back quite yet, I'm confident that it should be good as despite the first year of work being almost completely scrapped, (my entire first year was spent with a cover teacher who had never taught graphics before), I feel my work has recovered to the point where my proper teacher considered my final piece for the exam to be 100% mark quality, so go me I guess.
    However this still worries me as I'm not sure if the cover teacher does BTEC Extendended as my friend in the BTEC first class they taught said they were as bad with his class as she was with mine



    I've spent the last few days trying out proper perspective as I've never actually practised it, point out as many errors as possible. (first to 100 wins a prize).
    I'm just trying to use simple primitives together, however I have no idea how to draw ellipses in perspective so I need help there for sure.
    Also, as you can probably see, I tried to do shadows but I don't understand how to construct them properly as there's I've seen few tutorials on it.

    So in general,
    I would love some recommendations for studies and activities to so over the holidays.
    Any help or resources would be fantastic too

    Bridgeman Head Study

    Here's a quick study of Bridgman's model of constructing a head.

    Am I doing this correctly? Should I just be learning methods until I have a firm understand of them before I try implementing them into my own pieces? Or should I try and do my own pieces as soon as possible?

    Sorry if these are ridiculously stupid questions to be asking.

    For some reason my posts don't seem to be going through. I've tried twice now and it still won't work.
    Are they being checked by a moderator or is it an error.

    Well I'll try again.

    Here's another bridgman piece.

    This was difficult. However, I don't know how but the head only took up half of what I expected.

    ^I can't seem to figure out how to do this one.
    I've seen a few other users having difficulty with it, is the method Andrew Loomis used easier to understand?

    Ah, I didn't realise posting attachments and links made my post get sent for moderation.
    Ooh boy the mods are going to love me today, I've tried reposting something at least twice.

    Why are they so hard? They keep looking like eggs, even with guides

    Trying with Loomis

    Trying using the Loomis method. It's probably going to be easier to use as there's far more examples.

    Poses and Hype Train

    Working on poses, are the proportions correct?

    Also DOOM 4 reveal tweets got me hyped so I doodled this on it. Shame it was attendee only and everyone must have been strip searched for cameras despite so many people tweeting from inside.

    Pretty crappy I know, but I am too scared of the rumours of Revenants with jetpacks to worry about the quality of a little doodle.

    The weather has been so warm lately I can hardly think, but I still feel that I must be doing things wrong. Even my lines look bad. Should I stick to pen and paper instead of my tablet?

    Hi Principe Daemoniorum and welcome to the forum!
    It's looking good so far just don't tell yourself all the time you're doing something wrong! Drawing and painting and art and all that it's a lot about becoming and beeing confident with what you're doing. And it's not the hardest thing to just draw something. What did you do first, speaking a language or scribbling something on a paper? think about it
    So what I'm saying is just draw and draw and draw, there is no right or wrong in the beginning, try stuff out, draw what ever you like or study whatever you like. Don't think about the fact that you might be doing something wrong, the anatomy and the proportions in your last update they are wrong of course but the thing is it doesn't matter that much. I think it looks kinda cool. The question you should ask instead is am I having fun doing this? And if maybe not so much am I learning from it? Does this study help me to draw a certain thing better? and so on take your time bro and don't rush anything it takes a looong time to get all the proportions in a pose right for example!

    Now to the ellipses, it's really not easy to draw them in perspective, best thing to do is looking at tutorials or getting a good book on perspective drawing. I sketched a little explanation because I saw you tried this before and made it wrong so I hope it helps you a bit! (sorry for bad quality)

    One more thing, the medium you use totally doesn't matter, I do my sketching on paper and the painting stuff digital, but fact is when working on a job or so most of time you'll work digital so why not get used to it and do everything digital? Or combine it, do sketching on paper and scan them, color the sketches digitally. Whatever man, totally doesn't matter, if you can draw traditionally (pen paper) you just need a month or so with a tablet to get used to it and if you do everything digital you'll need some time to get used to pen/pencil again but however you do it, your skilllevel will go up.

    Other than that just keep going, keep practicing and use the time that you have now!

    Cruptic, thanks for the advice and encouragement. Nice example on how to do circles and ellipses, I didn't realise the 45 degree point would be so simple.

    To improve my proportions I did a simple Loomis study.

    Symmetry is not one of my strong points, but seeing as the hands were in different poses I'll do a few hand and arm studies soon.

    Values

    Here's a value study.

    I can see that the head is too wide and tilted at the jaw.
    Also the proportions are all over the place.
