    Marmona's Sketchbook

    Hey everyone, I'm an undergrad majoring in graphic design. I study illustration independently. I'm grateful to anyone who's willing to criticize my work.

    My biggest concern right now is developing a 3D sense of human anatomy, but you'll find more than just figure drawing here.

    You can see it immediately in the influence of Glenn is drawing. The gesture is really beautiful, the skin fold is well represented.( overlaps ). Great!! Good sketch !!

    I have not. Faces are a weak point for me at the moment. I'm guessing that I would need to analyze photographs and break them down in drawings, but if you don't mind me asking, do you have any tips regarding how else I can practice?

    Tackle your weak points asap! If I can give you any advice regarding faces it would be from my own experience. I studied from books! Many books, many chapters of books. There's a free "Head and Hands" book by Andrew Loomis online if money is an issue. I found that one helped me. But like any other area of study, you'll require more than just books that give you the general anatomy. Observing photographs and people in real life is as important as we all have unique face proportions. Finally, I would suggest do more than just copy, try to understand the structure, try drawing it from imagination afterwards, experiment! That's all Hehe

    This mostly an attempt at feeling out anatomy and memorizing it. I made the volumes in black ink and then mapped out the muscle and tendon underneath using a medical chart. I've always been a little fuzzy about the muscle bunches around the shoulders, ribs and quads. Ankles and feet will have to be tackled later.

    From left to right I'm limiting myself to referencing the image that came before it and getting less and less complex. The purpose is to establish the planes of the face. Looking at it now, I can see that the hairline on drawing #2 got screwy. My subconscious is taking from the proportion charts at school and assuming it lies in the top 1/3 of the head. I will certainly have to do this at other angles.

    Thank you anime-master-96

    This is for Vilppu's class. The goal is to draw torsos without reference while focusing on "squash and stretch". I need to do some more studies on photos.

    These are some studies for homework at Oatley Academy. (I subscribed to magic box last week and am really happy with it so far.) The ballpoint drawings are referenced from collections on Pinterest. I colored two of them out of personal desire more than anything else. The assignment is to recreate a classic portrait while superimposing an animal into it, so here you can see the Rembrandt painting I plan to reference plus a merged version of the line art and shading so far. Most of it will eventually be painted over with gradients.

    Great figure studies. Who is the portrait of? She looks like river song?

    Thanks Dayle! The portrait is of Alex Kingston, the actress who plays River Song (Yes, I'm a Doctor Who fan.) I did it a while back and I can't find the photo of her that I referenced from. However, it is a study on Peter Paul Rubens' style and I do have that reference:

    Cool, great likeness! Rubens and Dr Who... sounds good to me, you should try a Karen Gillan portrait Not long to the new series. ps, did you see the episode with Van Gogh? Had me in tears. Take care.
