Carnifex' ended sketchbook, 18th oct. 05
dunno if i will be able to draw daily always...work is exhausting...but anyways, you gotta set a starting point somewhere! so i'll try to update as often as possible. hope the pics aren't too big.
gave up after some time on this one(yesterday).
stupid warmup sketch from today that i dislike very much.
block figures 1
block figures 2
and a finished doodle i very much enjoyed creating(thread also in sketches section)
martian from "war of the worlds"
yeh well....tell me what you think so far and what i should practice most in the next time. my top priority right now is to get my pictures to look more natural, because yet they mostly look too much like comic-book art.
so...LET ME HEAR YOUR CRITS!

These are very good! The only thing I noticed was that the girl in the first image, her arms seem to be at the wrong angle... as if her far away arm should be lower. All in all, a great start!
December 15th, 2004 #3
the girl's arms were the factor that made me give up-plus the already adressed comic-book look of the muscles and stuff.

Not to be a party pooper, but I think this might help: Your proportions aren't bad, but the positions look aquard and the figures look outlined. Try drawing into your figures more... jesture drawings from life may properly loosen you up. Also, try and pay more attention to your figure-ground relation. The fairy critter is lookin a little manly, try getting some girls to model for you, that'd probably be benefitial as well. Keep going, your on the right track!
btw, that love that last creature you posted, looks squishie.
December 15th, 2004 #5
which picture are you most relating too with the proportions?
atm i can't attend any life drawing classes and have very limited access to cafés and stuff because of work.
thanx for the comment

I think if you rotate the fairy girl image a little to the right, it would look better and most likely let you draw the arms more accurately, because at the angle it's at now, it looks like she would fall right off.
Keep at it man, I'm going through the same thing. Too much work, not enough art, haha.

will see what i can do.
you gonna have to wait for more pics till i can get home and scan them(i'm at work right now).

today wasn't a very good day for drawing-i'm being pretty tired all the time...well, i did atleast do something. just some gesture drawings mostly and a short attempt at dividing the hand into parts like mentler(pretty inspiring guy).
agh-i'd need some site with focus on feet and their anatomy...every anatomy book out there doesn't seem to focus too much on them.
December 20th, 2004 #10
sorry for the big delay...had some days of hard work...
a secretary sketch i don't like very much.(i hate shoes)
some stick figure tests from today.
then i decided i need a break from human/-like anatomy so i made some sketches inspired by sammy and brasshorsekiller.
probably one more to come later today.
here's verily one more...for lord of laquinta. about 1 hour i think (still slooow).
topic was pinup girl.

sorry for not updating for such a long time...hadn't time to scan over the holidays/draw much.
well, anyways, here's again a bunch.
testing my new ink pens(xmas present).ignore the manga thingy
most probably the most pathetic page in this sketchbook thread.
more trouble with feet...
finally something good (although one hand is too big and the other looks weird).sketched today.
ok, so my biggest problem are feet.could anyone post links how to construct them properly/references? i can't find anything proper.
oh yeah, and GIVE ME SOME FEEDBACK PPL!

no update, no replies
do more of those skeletons/stick figures
those were good
December 29th, 2004 #16
a-ha! if that above my last post wasn't an update what then?
but anyways,thank you, i'll do more of these sticks if you wish
could you perhaps point out how to correct my feet drawings?
or other errors so far
December 29th, 2004 #17
I think you should draw bigger and on the feet start with the bone structure.
The one wehre you did draw the bones first is the best on that page imo.

December 29th, 2004 #19
okay,new piece-still a4 size. wasn't able to finish the semi-human because of my work.
give me c&c as far as possible.

You have some nice sketches here, I like exspecially the rendering of the >martian from "war of the worlds"< and that black ink flowers (?)
I have some suggestins concerning anatomy study ....
I know it's quite expensicve, but I think Gottfried Bammes: Die Gestalt des Menschen (Lehr- und Handbuch der Künstleranatomie) might be of some help for seeing what can be working and what not in anatomy and how skeleton, muscles etc. are playing together.
And you'll find a lot on feet and hands there.
Or study the studies of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Duerer....there are so many ...it can be worthwhile
As you are living in Vienna I would also take advantage of the museums there - das Kunsthistorische Museums contains - if I remember right, a lot of statues... that might also help to improve your anatomy skills
hope that's of some help...

Carnifex, Nike is right, Bammes is great and very helpful. You can get it from www.zweitausendeins.de for only 25 EUR in a paperback version!
As for size: You can work on A4 as long as you put only one or two items on it and try to fill the page. I prefer A4, too, because I only hava na A4 scanner and it's easier to transport.
December 29th, 2004 #22
These sketches are looking good so far.
Keep working with that anatomy! I´m learning it myself and found a few great tips reading Loomis books.
You can find the books here: http://www.saveloomis.org/
December 29th, 2004 #23
thanx for the suggestions. i don't live in vienna, but i'll see if i can get into the museum when i'm there next time.
considering the book: very helpful tip,though i'll not buy it now, because i've used pretty much money for the sf workshop-and i expect to learn as much as possible there.
dunno,will i get to see any of you guys there?
teea:hah,thanx,but i've already found them before you can see some of the studies after it with the stick figures

Eh in der Nähe von wien... Danke für Dein statement in meinem thread. Bin mir nicht ganz sicher ob das nicht unhöflich ist, in deutshc zu schreiben, mache deswegen auch auf Englisch weiter. Meld Dich mal, wenn Du nach Wien kommst (email@example.com)..
Bin echt gespannt wie's bei Dir weitergeht! Zeig mehr sachen von dir!
January 4th, 2005 #28
hoohaa! so this is the last update before the workshop! tomorrow i'm off to the airport and on thursday i'm flying!
we'll see if there are some changes afterwards...i think so.
c u all on terra.

phew...i've been sick for one week,and today i finally lost my feever(still bad cough though).
i got sick immediately after the workshop(infact on the flight back) and i'm still too lazy to scan all the 30+ pages i did there, so here's a little teaser. more or less. just some digital crap. inspired by marko's statements "to draw more and think less" and "to start with the arms for dynamic and with the legs for solid poses". also i guess it really helps some that i've started practicing block forms like rectangles etc.
perhaps i'll get my lazy ass to scan some pics on the weekend. until then, have a good time.

still too lazy to scan my pieces from the workshop-they're so many.
well,anyways here's my first finished pic since months.don't like the scan, it got abit corny. you can find this in the regular sketches and helpful critiques forum also,to give more specific crits if you want. anyways, SAY SOMETHING!
