    Road to great improvement: Imajus' Sketchook *update: (03/16/2005)*

    I decided, starting today, that I want to greatly improve my skills especially since I started art school. I have two years till I graduate and want to have no problem getting a job. Here's a few recent sketches to start things off.

    Nice stuff, like that last one. Do studies of anatomy and try to begin steering away from the stylizing, save that for when you know the body really well.

    How old are you?

    Keep up the work!

    Welcome!

    The figures look good! I'd suggest taking what you've learned from the figure drawings and taking that into what you do originally, the difference between the two is very noticble! I agree with mos, less style more study!

    Good luck and I look forward to seeing some more!

    Thanks for the suggestions. I go to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for game art and design. It's a very good program in my opinion.

    howdy cowboy O_O

    godd stuff u got here like the life drawing gestures..

    suggestion : u can seperate the body features and stude them .. seperated.. i mean.. draw arms and legs like cylinders in order to learn orientation and how to rotate them *movement limits*
    then may learn muscle names * until u know them from mind.. memorize all names .. that really helps alot.. otherwise u never know which muscle u see or u need to draw*
    then add these muscles to that cylindrical form.. the cylinder keeps the orientation.. otherwise it may look twisted

    u can seperate the hand into cylinders or cubes too..one finger are maybe 3 cubes or so... *i learn hand that way*


    keep ur 3dimensions in mind... x y z those make drawings look 3D

    need more tips ? particular ?
    pm me

    good resources

    Try the vilpu life drawing manual for gesture and Burn Hogarth or something for anatomy. Bridgeman is at the top of the list too. I go to the AI California/orange county for game art as well.

    I'll definately check out Vilppu. I have a hograth book, but it just doesn't do it for me. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like he jumps right into the super muscular metallic looking action figure people. I'm actually looking for something a little more beginner friendly. I do feel I am better than an absolute beginner, but I thought I'd work my way up to see where I am.
    Anyway, thanks and it's good to see a fellow game art buddy here.

    on villpu

    Yeah...my lifedrawing teacher (Stephan Hampton) was one of the best I've ever seen, and he studied under villpu at the Animator's Union. His method begins with gesturizing the figure with line, then moving to geometric shapes and then 3d forms, finally adding the anatomy and details last. Hogarth is good for a few things, he knows how to keep the planes of the figure very real his pieces. Sometimes it gets to be too much. He also draws every muscle flexed (which would be impossible). His stuff is very good to make yourself femiliar with the names and ideal positions for muscles though.
