    I droo, 1 noo! *Present* ((Feb. 24))

    Hello Everyone...

    Short Bio:

    I've been a long time viewer of these boards and have found that this is BY FAR the best site for concept art, and just art in general. I've gained a large amount of knowledge reading and viewing what others in this community have done, and now I have decided to post some of my own sketches. Post your crits and comments if you have any. Thanks.

    -Abra

    See X's and geocities don't allow outside linking, either convert them to .txt format or make them into a link form, and beside your site is down due to activity...

    Nice variety between life, study and imagination. Keep up all that and you'll continue to get better. Your scanner should make a preview first and then there should be a square selection tool, you might want to use that to get rid of the stripes where your sketchbook doesn't take up the whole scanning bad. If you have photoshop use the crop tool to narrow image down to just your sketch page.

    hello Abra, welcome to CA.org, THE most kickass art website on the net. anyway, i like where your going with your pics. it seems to me that you are having plenty of fun with what your drawing (which is always important). But, if you'd like to improve, lets see some studies n stuffs. good beginnings tho, and keep it up!

    Da Vinci was a concept artist
    11/30/03-11/30/05. Thanks CA, for all the great inspiration. When will I update? I dont know...

    I like your action poses, and your faces are good as well. Just keep working on those lines until you are confident with them.

    Joeslucher:Thanks for the tips and complements. This was my first time ever scanning anything, but i'll definately crop out the empty space next time.

    obid619:Thanks, I do have some studies in my current sketchbook, but figured I'd first post some of my more favorite drawings. Sadly I can't draw any nudes from life because I'm only 17 ... which sucks of course.

    Fureatenshi:Thanks, after scanning in my drawings I have realized how lightly I have been drawing. I've traded in my mechanical pencil (which many of those drawings were in) for a 6B.. so as I post more you should be able to see drawings more clearly.

    steak-tron: I can already feel them pulling me in!

    mentler: Thanks! Took me a while to build up the confidence to finally post. Thanks for the welcome.

    Hey Abra, np. But yeah it's good to draw light. Because if you draw in too dark it tends to make the drawing look flat. You want to have a variation in lines...

    Anatomy +1

    Here are some recent anatomy studies I've been working on with the arm.
    I've decided to get rid of my old "eh, looks right to me" method I've had and
    am trying to get to the point where I KNOW the anatomy is right. So
    far I jsbr memorized the arms and hands down pretty well (by the end
    of the day their are a million sketches of arm muscles all over my school notes).
    Next I'm thinking neck, upper body, and then finally the legs/feet (personally
    my weakest area). Enjoy!...

    -Abra

    P.S.: better scans this time!

    Was bored today in math, and decided sketching this out was more important
    than reviewing for the final... It's only a corner of the drawing, the rest of
    the page is pretty uninteresting.

    Instead I take Biology... I guess now I can draw Cells??
    Enjoy..

    Coolness

    Ha ha..yea. Loooove pencil drawings. Especially sketchy ones 'cause that's how it all started^_^. First of all, you're anatomy drawings are very cool (I have this thing for bones and muscles too so I get ya) and your characters are hilarious. Did you do those self portraits from a photo or by looking in a mirror? Keep it up!-Sio

    Enjoy...



    Here is my filled up page for today... trying to keep the darks dark and the lights light...

    sweet

    Nice work man, I really can see you're improving. Your depth, detail, and shading have gotten real good. You ought to do a self portrait and see how you fare this time. Keep on keepin on.

    ChEsTeR: thanks for the compliment... I have felt as though I have improved my drawings a lot recently.

    Here are a couple i worked on today.. The first one isn't wonderful, but the second is from a WWII photo ref and
    many people seem to like it. C&C welcome.

    Enjoy!...

    Markers!

    Hola,
    Went to the store to other day to buy myself some gouache (sp?), but none of the places I went to havd any!
    So I decided to order some off of pearlpaint.com and bought some markers instead. This was my first time ever experimenting
    with them, but I ended up liking my first doodle.. so here it is! enjoy!


    I droo, 1 noo! *Present* ((Feb. 24))


    Here's a pencil drawing (unfinished) i started earlier today..

    Nice work here... all of it. Great heads/faces.

    I just started playing w/ markers too, It's fun. I love how you can keep building up w/ the same % marker to create gradients and tones.

    I'll be keeping an eye on yer book kid.
