another beginners sketchbook
i started sketching a few months ago and started with not having drawn more than a few pages over the last couple of years.
i tried to take a two approach way. quick poses for figure drawing and general form building for perspective drawing.
i'm currently reading michael hampton and scott robertson.
please go ahead and c&c! i would be glad to hear your opinions.
edit: tried to debloat the first post of all the old scans for a new thumbnail

those are some 90 second quickposes from recently.
decided to taka a step back from cars etc. and concentrate on straigt lines and simpler forms for the moment. maybe i can come up with some environment sketches.

Wow man, I wish I was this good with gestures.

thank you very much for your comments, very appreciated!
some more refined sketches and a page of 90sec posemaniacs

update! tried some hands and feet since i was getting tired of poses but haven't done any more since then.

For a beginner u got a pretty good sense for gesture and perspective....
Love it so far.... u got any finshed pieces? would love to see them

nope, sadly nothing finished. i feel like i need a lot more sketching and underlying knowledge before i might tackle anything serious. that being said, maybe i'll try to do some finer linework on poses that came out okay so far.
attached, another small update

Hey ,you remind me of myself quite bit I've started several months ago too! It's really nice that you study Hampton, his book is amazing and you can learn A LOT, I still work through this book. I think the same thing about studies and sketching stuff, I actually prefer doing studies because I feel like I'm improving a lot faster than if just drawing from imagination. Though I don't completely shut it off ,you should draw from imagination too! Studies are important as hell but you should do your own stuff to develop your style. Also, don't depend on digital too much, the outcome of studies is nice but traditional is more important at this stage, cheersPlease check my SKETCHBOOK,eager for any advices!

haha looking at your sketchbook i have to agree, there are quite some similarities. thanks for your comment and advice though, i think this is really something that i've been neglecting.
here's a small sketch i started at breakfast today and went over in ps, no reference this time. the legs look a little strange to me..
edit: added a suit and some solid colors, but didnt notice the shoulder asymetry until now..
and another minor update, its obviously a super flexible, ergonomic suit :D

spend more time on this than i was expecting. added a dude in front. looks okay to me but not so sure about his back/neck area.

found the sketchdaily subreddit yesterday and used todays topic 'post apocalyptic punks' for some quick silhouettes and sketchover. went better than expected but not very original i guess.
also, some more stylized comic book gestures from a marvel book.
