    Monkey Madness Sketch Thread - Update 25/5/05 - sweet update - check it out!

    Hello all,

    figured it was time I got my arse in gear and started posting stuff (especially with San Fransisco just around the corner! ) So without further ado I present a bunch of recent monkey doodles for your enjoyment. I will endeavour to keep the sketching daily, an update here as often as possible. I'm really trying to improve so please crit away...

    These here are from my previous sketchbook (last 2 months or so) - mostly drawings from TV with a few random doodles thrown in:

    And a few don't-take-the-pen-off-the-page studies:

    These ones are from my mini-sketchbook. They are almost all drawings on the bus or other public places. (Compiled a bunch onto one page).

    Thanks for yer comments! OK, I've been trying to get around and put in such helpful words as I can, so if anyone wants to drop a few crits my way it would be much appreciated

    Just some more from my mini sketchbook: I will post more frequently (these are from the last few weeks) and put up my life drawing stuff too.

    On the plane:

    These first ones were drawn during the recent lunar eclipse. Normally I'm not into that kind of thing, but I saw it on TV where the guys described it as "all the sunrises and sunsets from around the world shining on the moon, and the reflected back to us" which gave me kind of a funny feeling. The others are airport drawings:

    As promised, life drawings from the past few months. Apologies for the crappy scans - most of these are pretty big and had to be scanned in pieces.

    Really good figure drawings and sketches!

    Only crit is your eyes are too big or too close to eachother sometimes... just a little thing!

    Overall, awesome job! Really enjoyed this sketchbook.

    I'll be checking back in soon for sure!

    IanE - thanks a lot man! Yeah, eye placement has been giving me some problems - I'll work on it.

    Ok, here finally is the San Fransisco sketches, including my Thunderdome challenge, which has a few of the sort of glaring errors you get when inking at 3 in the morning. But just hanging out and drawing in the hotel lobby was one of the highlights of the weekend for me - such great energy.
    There's also a bunch of fellow CA-ers, so if you see yourself, please stop by to say hello!

    You've got some nice stuff up in here! I really like all the contour work you're doing. There's a really nice lose line you've got a hold of. One thing I'd like to see more of is your adding some value to these forms to give s'more depth. Nice, nice stuff you've got cookin' though. Keep it up!

    ok here are some more - fighting with PROPORTION primarily. That was Ron
    Lemen's main pointer at SF, so I figure thats got to be worth taking to heart.
    Also trying to get a bit more rendering in, building up 3D form a bit more, etc...
    Apologies for the crappy quality of some of these - I'm still working out the
    best way of getting them onto the computer.
    Well, here we go:

    Now this is something I have quite gotten into recently - drawing from movies. Especially with the freeze-frame feature on DVDs - can get lots of interesting compositions, poses, facial expressions etc....
