    Between Frames

    What better why to start a dsb than a trip to the zoo? A bit of everything in here


    Crit, or crit not, there is no try.

    those monkeys are what i would consider to be the best so far. they have nice movement and good lines. im not sure about the rest as they pretty much all seem like scribbles. i also enjoy that owl, it has a nice life about it with some decent accuracy in the lines/values youve laid.

    i would certainly encourage you to emphasize much more on the linework that you have. try to stay away from the scribbling that youve done with those small birds. while that may work for some people, i dont think you've quite gotten to that point yet. keep practicing!

    Hi Hamsta
    Good to see you are starting a sketchbook!

    The zoosketches are nice, do more of them and your lines will become more confident. Personally I think zoosketches are a good way to learn capturing shape and movement with a few strokes only, cause the animals are moving a lot from my experience. I would even suggest to do such tudies with a brushpen or a ballpoint - that helps a lot.

    I really like that frog -nice colors - his head is a bit too bigand his feet a little bit out of perspective for a real frog, but it's stylized and doesn't really matter for this picture. Good one.

    I'd love to see more studies and life drawing from you!

    Keep them coming!

    mostly street cats today, till I got bored waiting for them to hang around me.

    The head of the frog was purposely enlarged, in hopes it would be friendlier, I'm glad you like it Nike

    Hey Hamsta.
    cool stuff u've gathered here. The zoo was fun. yeee
    Your line works seems to be cool.
    Well, i didnt see that much from u.
    The last update is pretty cool. the faces are awsome. well, the proportion doesnt seem to be right.

    But i'll suggest u to do some studies:
    1. Anatomy.
    2. prespective

    Post more.
    Looking forward to see more from u.
    by the way,, i love ur pic. Awesome,,

    Hi!

    I loved the frog! It's just great! Has a lot of character for a frog. (thats a compliment ).

    From the figures you posted I can tell that once you master the basic proportions, you'll do great! Follow people's advice and practice a lot.

    Did I say I loved the frog?

    I just finished a zoo sketch trip, too! How big are those pages? I love your quick ink studies, and the bigger ones of the figures. The shading of the face turned out well on the bottom girl.

    I suppose the best way to work those ink ones are just keep doing them over and over, since you can't really do any guidelines or anything. I know nib inking is unruly, as I've dabbled with it a bit? How often are you supposed to dip them? I really know nothing about it, but would like to do more since I own the tools. Tips?

    The mantis is awesome. You could probably go at it with a more compressed type of charcoal and really boost its contrast way up. There are some places looking good (like the highlight on the wing and the face) that could really pop out more as a result.

    yup
    u have a good interest in several subjects and thats good
    ur curious
    my tip would be - watch ur values
    u tend to put realy darks where its only "relatively" really dark
    its a common mistake, i guess
    so watch that
    or it will KILL YOU

    Man, that ink wash is really cool - it really seems like you captured the light with it. I haven't tried that medium for a while, I think I'll do it again. Anyway, the one thing I thought I might mention is that you tend to make the (model's) left upper arm too short - in other words, the elbow is too high. It's really the only major proportion error that I see right off the bat, and it's in both the earlier ink drawing and the more recent wash. If I stand up, my elbow reaches about a half inch below the top of my hip bone. If you spot the bottom of the ribcage and the top of the hip in your drawings, you'll see what I mean.

    Just a suggestion - you might try some master copies, even of some of the other artists here on ca. Sometimes it's surprising what you learn from just a few of those.

    Hey Hamsta! Already I am seeing some big improvements in your work!

    I like the catalogue figure studies and your inkwash best - it shows you're really paying attention to forms, which is what your first zoo studies were lacking. Definitely keep up the washes and the gestures!

    Hi Hamsta,

    god to see you going further and there surely is improvement since the beginning. I don´t knwo if you´re doing this already but I would recommend to do structured studies. When looking at your figures I see that there´s a lack of background regarding anatomy. Maybe taking some anatomy studies could help you - they did at least for me .

    Hey, you're getting better each time.

    You might want to practise some more on making "clear-line" drawings, not sure what the "real" name is, but drawings where the outline is defined more clearly, and by not by several strokes. The better one get at that, the easier it will be catching the right movement.

    If you didn't understand a thing of what I meant, I'll try to find the proper terms, heh. Or if someone else has them and can translate me...

    Loved the frog and your ink.
