Thread: glöggens sketchbook.
February 27th, 2005 #1
Okay, so this would be where I upload stuff from my sketchbook then
I want to evolve as much as possible so please don't hold back on your c&c guys!
The thing is that the stuff that I do from the top of my head always come out real shitty, so I thought I would start to draw stuff from life and from reference photos. Is that an ok way to go?
This is from a photo. Got kinda tired after a while, I think the problem with this one is that I outlined too much stuff from the beginning...
A shot at doing buildings, from a photo. I made a couple of boxes with ruler, rest is free hand.
Here I did a car from reference. The penciled sketch was alot better, but for some reason I thought it was important to destroy it by inking it...
This is the last crumbs of coffee, drew it while it was sitting on my desk. I have bought more now, so don't worry, I'll be posting more caffeine-fuelled drawings
Here I wanted to practice doing rocks since the ones I do from mind suck hard. From a reference photo.
This is a dude that is speared. Made from the top of my head and a desire to murder my new .2 ink pen.
This is an old bag that I keep my drawing stuff in. Kinda old, made it about a year ago. Maybe it's dumb to post old sketches? Sketched from life.
This one also made from a reference pic. I kinda grew tired on the fur.
With all these except for the speared dude I start out trying to get the proportions down on paper and then trying to shade it approximately the way it looks on the photo. After a little while I grow tired of doing exactly after the reference so I start to shade it kinda like I feel. I dunno if that's good or bad.
I thank you in advance for any crits you might have, and I look forward to keeping the sketchbook here and hope to make some progress

Den 1a bilden var den bästa, där har du verkligen fått till perspektivet.
Det som jag tror du ska träna på är skugga, och linjerna, som inte alltid känns helt säkra.

En tacker för svaret
Japp, linjerna har jag problem med, svårt att dra en enda som hamnar där man vill ha den. Kanske borde göra lite såna övningar där man drar en massa raka linjer o sånt?
Är det nåt speciellt du tänker på vad gäller skuggningarna?

Very good start, drawing from reference is a very good way to learn, just try to understand what it is what you are drawing, what the light is doing, perspective and stuff.
Also drawing from life is a great way to train your observational skills.

Thanks for the reply!
Yeah, I will try and think about what it is I am drawing and why stuff looks the way they do. It's easy to forget sometimes :/

U have fine drawing hand!
I never could do something like that formline abstract thingy...
oh i become old with my trembling hand!
ok, try to avoid smearing if you do not use it consequently.
Mhh..just stop it for the moment!
I really like the locomotive, good shading IMO, well just keep it on!

Thanks for the reply, you are absolutely right in what you are saying. The smearing actually happened as an accident with the bear and I have no idea on how to stop it from happening. I try to sketch from left to right but that sucks, I always want to come back and do stuff on the left so then my hand/wrist smears what I did to the right
I can use a paper if it's something big I am doing that I know will take time, but it feels kinda silly to have an extra loose paper between my hand and the sketch if I am just sitting around doodling. How do you guys do? No contact hand-paper at all?

very good start, especially the train, u have done good efforts /
GO TO PRACTICE !!!! GGRRRRRRR
u should concentrate on proportions (in tried, that's frustrating but after ... it's less frustrating)

Okay so this is from today and yesterday night then.
This is where I thought I should practice some shading. Seems like I have to do that more. From pic
Another shading practice, it's from a close up photo I took of a couple of bananas. If I still had had them I would have drawn them from life
Dunno why I added that damn blue stuff. Wont happen again...
Got tired of drawing from photos so I drew my left hand a few times. I think I will keep on doing that. Easy to light it differently and practice shading as well.
I say thank you in advance if there is any c&c

That last car you posted is badass! I really liked your rock study you did of the ocean front environment, really awesome, and very panoramic!
I think aside from some ellipses looking a little odd on the train sketch, you should fix them and finish that piece because it looks great so far!
You've posted a lot of objects and still life, and they're very good! Have you by any chance studied anatomy or done life/figure drawings?
Very good work, post something new!

Zou: thanks, I try my best!
IanE: Thanks for the comment, and yes you are absolutely right about the ellipses, I never bothered to frame them and so on, and my freehand ones could use some brushing up
Well, i've gone to figure drawing like five times or something that was arranged by my school. The problem is that I can't take any nude classes on other schools in the area because I kind of know one of the models and it would feel weird. I try and draw stuff that I see around me, but lately it has been alot of photos, unfortunately
