    NightVision Sketchbook - update Oct 6th, 2008 - Pics only on page 4

    Long time lurker here. Love all the great art on the site ! But this is the section I visit most, it's really addictive to see how fellow artists struggle, grow & evolve.

    C&C is very welcome, I sure have a lot to learn.

    This weeks sketches:

    skulls & doodles

    the first one scanned a bit dark, hence the smudges (being worse than on the actual page).

    I also did a crappy landscape speedpaint, but my pc crashed before I thought about saving it, oh well, at least I got the practice.

    from life, colored pencils on yellow paper, first one about 30 minutes, the others each about 20 minutes.
    oh yeah, she was leaning against the wall for all poses, that's why she's off balance, I just didn't draw it in.
    C&C anyone ?

    Hey Nightvision. I really like the last update.

    C&C: I notice the arm are only half done. It just looks a bit weird because the legs are rendered alot more than the arms. I think its ok to have them rendered at different stage but the arms are too far behind if you know what I mean. Make sure you work the entire piece and not just specific areas.

    Keep drawing. Cheers.

    Been a while ...

    Tigermilk, thanks !

    Zou, nope, no ref . I haven't drawn from the book yet (Hale), but it's really inspirational to read it & see the art ! Sooo ... if you wanna draw like the old masters ... I really have to recommend the book ... not me, lol !

    Maxetormer ... always a pleasure to have you here ... which reminds me, I should post some time in yours as well ... you're doing great stuff lately !
    Thanks for pointing out the shoulder-mistake ... I can see it now !

    Daniel, thank you ! Hands ... argh ... I keep putting hand studies off ... I really shouldn't though, it'll hurt when I get to them

    KR33P, heh, I like her too ... I think it's a style that suits me, so you may see more of it in the future

    pvpham, ... busted !... I never work on my arms when I draw from memory, because I haven't studied them yet ... there's just no knowledge I can 'play' with (yet) ... Which leaves the crit just as valid though, even if it's on a different level (aka study).

    A few of my drawings from last month:

    48
    from life, 20-25 min

    49
    head & nose constructions
    NightVision Sketchbook - update Oct 6th, 2008 - Pics only on page 4

    50
    I should have gone to bed, but kept doodling instead ... I didn't have an idea what I was doing during this, and now that it's finished, I still got no idea ...
    Actually, it just made it in to show I don't only draw girls
    No ref, 1:30' or so
    NightVision Sketchbook - update Oct 6th, 2008 - Pics only on page 4

    51
    But of course I do draw girls ... no ref ... and if I can't get those heads bigger ... I'm gonna call it a style thing ! (j/k)
    NightVision Sketchbook - update Oct 6th, 2008 - Pics only on page 4

    52
    and suddenly I can draw big heads !!??? from life,bit over an hour or so (model fell asleep, atmosphere & music were really relaxed, I had a great time drawing this)

    from life, 5-10 min

    Good job on those proportion diagrams, I´ve been working on exactly the same thing for the last couple of days. But your attempts are way better than mine.

    Maybe you should try if you can draw them from memory in order to control if they´re properly fixed in your mind.

    Wow! Finally! One whole Page! Well...you gotta start back somehow. I love ballpoint pen, it's easier for me to see than graphite, it's not so shiny and doesn't smudge so easily. Plus it's not so subtle like pencil, don't have to worry about rendering too much because it's so time consuming and not worth bothering with. What is my point? I don't know. Glad you're back. Did you know a year long zoo pass is about 60 bucks, I got one about 4 months ago and only went once, I'll have to go back again soon.

    hi armando, when I saw you replied, I thought you were gonna kick my ass for sure, lol. I like balpoint a lot as well, but the drawback is that you can't erase, so now it's back to pencil, which I like just as well.

    nice book, its really inspireing to see all the improvements uve made. I did notice that u like doing a lot of studies. Studies will get u a long way, but its also really healthy to try and utilize ur mind, and just go loose and try and see things in the lines. I think ur at a point were u can start to push ur envelope and do some insane and cool looking drawings. Try doing some more stuff from ur imagination. but, i really like ur studies, and if thats wat ur working on right now, by all mean dont listen to me and focus on that. I just wanted to put forth a little challenge to see wat u can really do, and i think u can do a lot. U have a lot of nice stuff. keep up the hardwork.

    OBX, thanks for the vote of confidence, I do love to draw without reference, but always get to a point where I don't know how to take it further, I gotta work on that !

    Heroic, uh, what can I say ... tiny update it shall be once more (hangs head in shame). I do draw, just don't update ... for the record .

    no ref on these, and I think I like how they came out. Drawn after lotsa heads from ref and Nicolaides gesture excercises. Now I gotta do moooooore.

    Keep your lines cleaner http://users.pandora.be/Decryptor/im...2006_01_21.jpg you'll need that in order to control overlap which gives dimension. For example on the bottom guy's legs there is overlap at the calves and hamstrings, but since there a bunch of other little marks going on this is lost. I like the organization of the tones of the figure on this newset one: dark for the skirt, medium for the top and legs, then light for the skin. The chest and face are dirtied up a bit though, which ruins that organization/rhythm of these 5 shapes. It also has an appealing linear rhythm which you did a good job of emphasizing with the silhuette, and nice variation of the pose which adds some dynamism: the weight is on one leg which forces up the hip, which causes the shoulders to tilt. Once again I'll say to simplify your line http://users.pandora.be/Decryptor/im...2006_01_23.jpg, like on the top profile there are a bunch of little lines for the forehead and brow eminence which can be reduced to four, the artists job is to simplify. The old man is done better. It's okay to start with sketchy lines, but it's also an important exercise to refine and edit those lines.

    your work shows promise but you need more real life drawing to make the drawings from imagination more lively, they look stiff and uncomfortable. try to draw with continuous, flowing strokes and not the sketchy, unsure chicken scratch. i would suggest semi blind contours-only making a mark w/ your eye on the model/reference-only looking at your page for placement and scale. this will help you to not only improve your line quality but will force you to seek out the most descriptive lines, adding weight, life and accuracy to your drawings as well as making you more efficient, ie. less time spent.

    also when drawing figures start from the hips to the legs and then work your way up to the head after fleshing out the back. i have found this to be an excellent excercise that helped me to solve alot of my proportion issues.

    armando & kyi_72, thanks for the C&C, gives me a lot to think about & work on !

    A few more pages:

    71
    from yesterday, photoref, tried a bit different rendering
    NightVision Sketchbook - update Oct 6th, 2008 - Pics only on page 4

    72
    from today, rendered skull & eye from before the C&C
    NightVision Sketchbook - update Oct 6th, 2008 - Pics only on page 4

    73
    also from today, not so fast gestures (there's a lot of detail, but it got lost in the scan)
    I tried to take the crits into account in 72 & 73 (no chicken lines, cleaner art, efficient lines), but I see no difference with before, so it'll take some practice .
