    Thank you pvpham.
    I realized that I'm able to copy from pictures or reality, but not to copy from my mind. That's why I started this (hopefully daily) sketchbook. With your sketchbook I can see that practise makes much better. You improved allot and I like it to see that CG-peps are learning the traditional as well. I started it the other way round and both went pretty bad for the amount of years I'm into it.

    Gotta move my ass.
    While in class you have the most relaxed time of drawing.

    yaaaaa laipziger O_O

    wilkommäään


    nice stuff u starting with man
    like the guy in the tube

    are u going to some kind of art school yet?
    oda normale shice schule ? ;D



    i had problems with drawing from memory too.. .. between the images in our head and drawing them 1:1 .. is a difference.. when u know this .. u can draw evrything from memory


    its same difference u have between seeing 3d and drawing 3d... on paper sheets u can move up down left right.. in reality u can move
    up down left right forward backward.. these axis : for-back-ward have to be somekind of translated to fit on a 2d paper sheet u cant draw.. when u are not aware of that third dimension.. u cant draw it when ur eye cant see...

    cube drawing is a powerfull exercise... provides u with basic knowledge

    ::: foreshortening
    ::: perspective
    ::: symmetrie
    ::: dynamic
    ::: vanishing point


    know the perspective and u know the object*volume

    when u know how to draw perspective.. u know how to draw evrything from imagination.. i only draw studies to check perspective.. becuase i dont like to draw from ref but from memory

    i made a lil tutorial about perspective .. link is in my sketchbook : search for tutorial :

    and i made this crapy thing about heads :: http://www.sketchbooksessions.com/th...ic.php?t=21215

    ankle means angle and distanze means distance sry 4 me crappy english

    hope this helps a bit - more qs - pm me ?

    draw !

    ideshowbob: yäää Gölner! x_X

    (so sorry for my english)

    thanks for the crits.
    No I do not go to an art school. I once tried to get into but without any luck.
    I'm studying something more technical (writing, electrics and shit). sometimes I do a technicall illustration or make some designs/typo/Layout whatever.

    I think I know the basics of perspective and shading, but when it comes to human or animals, I lack of knowledge of the muscles, joints and movements (morphs). Gotta draw more from my hogarth book. Once I study it, a week later i've forgotten everything.

    Jokisalo: thx..."welcome"? I've been a member (more of a lurker and stupid-thread-poster) for ages here.

    Ok going to draw now.

    (btw: this forum is )

    Heroic: thank you. I'm highly motivated.
    Lizkay: thank you too. It's not inked but will be asap, as it's part of an animation.

    [EDIT]
    some recent copies again. I made an alternative cover for a CD about 1 or 2 months ago:

    yesterday evening at a Jazz-session:

    Sam256's blackbook [temporary closed for reconstruction|

    I'm having trouble not to trace my lines and to use as few lines as possible. The sketches look like I've been shaking all the time. (to my excuse: the light was very dim)

    I've at least improved in speed and accuracy.

    More to come...

    [EDIT]

    IanE: thx! The first pics are pretty old. I wasn't drawing regulary for a long time and am completly out of practise. I do draw as often as possible now and it feels better and easier everyday.

    Hello again,

    2 new sketchy pages:

    Sam256's blackbook [temporary closed for reconstruction|

    I tried sideshowbob's technique and it is really helpfull. Gonna do that some more. Feine Sache Junge, echt jetzt

    the scanner somehow squeezed the pages at the binding, I swear the proportions look better there.

    hehehihihihi thx to yuu man


    do u mean the technique from that tutorial ?

    this way its easy to start simple and then just adding few more details and so on..

    studies looking good so far..looking like mine while i started with figures and stuff


    to get a feeing for the 3d ness .. draw simple geometrtie to simple indicate
    the orientation.. i use cylinders for legs and arms.. 2 cylinders * lower and upper arm* same for leg.. for the ripcage i use a sphere and then i draw it a cubical style.. u see that in the head tut link above.. ihave a sphere and then i draw it simplified.. a sphere is anyways a good shape to start with.. it appears like a circle but in ur head it becomes a sphere..

    u always get a circle shape when u look at a sphere.. doenst matter from hwere u looking at.. its a sphere ..hahaaa


    u get the same technique for other shapes.. simple transformation.. changing angles and so on.. foreshortetning etc... i allign my ears nose and all other things the same way i alligned the jaw and chin..

    tell me if u like me to share some more tips and tricks .. just pm


    u described it well in my sketchbook.. the line thing and splitt it into easy lines..its what i doo.. when u follow some lines.. some of them keep important perpsective information which u have to grasp with ur eye.. then is much easier to do the next thing ': proportions
    ur stuff will look much better when u find more and more perspective informations hidden in these special lines .. these lines cross more then 2 axis


    my explanations need somekind of "dont get confused" certificate





    keep drawing them

    sidewhowbob: didn't meant the tut (only skimed it once ). I mean the way you draw in your sketchbook. I think I know perspective allot, as I'm into 3d and drawing perspectivly (even correct) for years. I'm not familiar with all the anatomy yet. That's why I need to study it like crazy. Only couple parts like the head and chest are somehow clear to me. The rest of the body is still like a closed book. A book without a seal.

    After I know how a part is changing while moving and how much volume it fills and where it's placed then I think I can draw it from every angle.

    whohooo!

    yea.. it what i am trying..
    the changing part.. there are only 2 things chaning
    1 foreshortening
    2 angle

    while the object is moving or rotating.. u get diffrent shapes because of 1 and 2 .. its not one angle with 2 lines.. which is easy.. a head with semi realism is like 10000 lines and 4500 angles or something ;D

    any object has special perspecive information.. when u grap em and draw em.. its really easy to rotate ur stuff.... u get complex objects but u still have only 2 variables which change.. 1 and 2 *above*

    when i draw..or whatever.. i trie to grap these perspective informations..they are all i have to know

    evrything is about perspective!

    iv drawen cubes for more then 3 month to get this done... i just not stoped until i felt save that i understood the basics behind.. which means reproduciable ..i cant say: i can draw cubes " when i cant get it drawn 1000 times this way.. i need to know all 44mio shapes..i dont have to draw them... but i think this is good effective way to learn drawing in no time..efficient and effective

    yea.. just imagine how c00l it is to draw stuff from any view u can imagine O_O like a matrix in ur head

    s0000 c000000l woaaa *respiratory emergency*


    tihihihihihihihih

    Hogarth with some wireframes:

    messy lines all around. I have to figure out how to use just one line instead of 10.

    did something different from anatomy yesterday.

    Pencils at home and markers and ink in the bus (*shaky shaky*). It's really hard to do nice lines in a bus.

    more...

    I lost my certitude, because of lack of time. I hope to have more time to sketch soon.

    This is one from yesterday evening at a local Jazz-Session (again )

    Sam256's blackbook [temporary closed for reconstruction|

    Jokisalo: Thank you very much. I do not see much improvement at all in my sketching, but nice that you do.
    Your sketches are getting much better and I admire your consciousness. Keep it up! Hope to get that consciousness too.

    Two digital sketches for today. I've been little busy lately, but there will be more soon.

    Sam256's blackbook [temporary closed for reconstruction|Sam256's blackbook [temporary closed for reconstruction|

    they're taken from OC sessions together with sideshowbob and Ilja Morumetz. BTW: why are you banned Ilja?

    [EDIT]

    Ilia: I read trough that NKorea thread...well now I know why you are banned. *I will keep my comment on that for me.*

    hi
    Nice sketchbook! I really love that marker sketch - and you did it while sitting in a bus! I couldn't get a single line in the direction I wanted it to, I think...
    Keep working on your anatomy and doing that quick gestures from life - they really help when working on a better understanding of human or animal body/movement...
    post more!
