    HeliosphanSketchbook (updated August 19th) [now with rabid bunnies!]

    The first few pages are pretty old, from 2002, 03 and such. I am starting sketching again because i'm starting at design at CMU next simester and i have to get back in the right brain groove. C&C are welcome and encouraged.

    page 07: this was from a photograph taken by stanley kubrick of a german photographer he was working with on the still for "dr. Strangelove". The guy has such a astounding stare that i tried to capture, and failed miserably doing.

    page 08: i got some new prismacolor markers for school and wanted to test them out.

    thanks for checking out my sketchbook and i will be updating a couple of pages each day until i reach my present state in the book. Once that happens, expect one page every two days (if i keep up with it)

    First of all, thanks for the post and links Mentler, i checked those out and they seem like very useful studies.

    Now, i got a little lazy today when i was scanning and decided to skip a couple pages and move straight into the more recent drawings (from august). I also realized that my colour profiles in photoshop are all fucked up, so my images appear alot darker in the program than they do outside of the program. This can end up to be very bad once i get into colored images. If anyone has any ideas or suggested colour profiles your help would be much appricated. To compensate for this, i increased the contrast on the next wave of scans.

    page 16: a tutorial page, two tutorials from fredflickstone on this awesome forum.

    page 17: not much to say about this one, i should fill my sketchbook pages a little more. (though the pages are only 5" by 8")

    page 18: i was working on a possible creature for the "creature thread", but then i was posed with some anatomy issues with the right arm. discouraged, i did some research on proper arm anatomy. with a bonus face study.

    page 19: get the holy hand grenade!

    edit: damn, after seeing how these drawings turned out, they look horrible. i'm going to suck it up and keep the low contrast images. i might just have to replace the ones that look really bad...

    page 20: all the references used are written on the page (all from stanley kubrick films). The idea came from Sammy's sketchbook. Someone asked him how he became so great at drawing little thumbnail sketches, he said that he practiced by drawing 10 quick thumbnails from a National Geographic. This inspired me to pick up the nearest book, just happened to be a book on my favorite director, Kubrick.
