    Moonstrider's too small sketchbook

    Hi everyone. I'm new here.
    I've been lurking around here for longer than I can remember (but then again, I have memory like a goldfish...), and finally dared to register.
    I found out that I'm not drawing enough so I'm gonna change that about now. I hope to post stuff here at least a couple of days a week...

    Here is some stuff to start off a little:


    Portrait of Isabelle Adjani, pencils, used a reference photo.


    Well... dunno really. This was a gift for a friend. Pencils on this one too. Used a ref but not too much.


    A ghost. Can't tell much about her or she will kill me in a most horrible way. Pencils again. Used ref a little on this one too.

    I guess all of them have their anatomy issues, especially the last two.

    First time commenting on a sketchbook here.

    Anyway, like you pointed out yourself, the last two do have anatomy problems, right off I can say the girl and fox picture, her hands are very small, and her arm on the left is rather long. The ghost face, her eyes are a skewed, and don't quite feel as round as they should.

    That aside, I can tell that you are taking a lot out of life drawing, and are doing a great job remembering things from life, the pose for the fox girl feels very natural and lifelike, and the ghost's face as a nice sense of facial anatomy starting, I get a good feeling for the naisal bridge and cheeck bones.

    Now it's just a matter of doing it again and again until it's even better, keep posting you have some wonderful works so far.

    Welcome to CA!

    Aside from what Skulldog said, the eyes on your portrait of Isabelle Adjani are too large. The space between them is too small. Keep in mind that the head is 5 'eye-widths' wide, and there should be enough space between the eyes to fit a third one!

    Great rendering and a strong start to your sketchbook, so keep it going!

    Again, welcome to CA!

    Hello.

    Thanks to both of you for welcoming me and your comments.
    Sorry for replying so late, but i wanted to post some pictures as well and didn't have access to a scanner.
    What you mentioned about life drawing, skulldog; I actually don't do much of it at all... I mostly draw from photos, but i guess the little life drawing i've done has paid off. We're going to have life drawing in scool soon too, with a nude model. Looking forward to it. It's over a year since we did that last time.

    Anyway... drawings:
    I've been filling A4 pages with drawings, at least one each day. I felt I improved a LOT from it just the four first days. Most of them (95%) is done from photos, some faces and smurfs are not.
    I'll post them in chronological order...











    edit: Forgot this:



    Also mostly from photo, it's sort of WIP as I'm going to add some details to the cross, but I think i will keep the wings plain white.

    Heheh, almost forgot about this thing but now is the time to revive it I think...

    Some recent digital stuff. Can't get anything done in natural media up now because my scanner was destroyed a while ago.

    Anyways...
    The first one is done in OpenCanvas the other two is done in sketcher @ www.artgrounds.com

    Så du hadde snuble over n0fish, så snubla jeg over deg i thread'en hans.. haha.. da teller vi ca. seks norske på forumet som jeg har funnet!

    'nuff norwegian..haha.. There WERE a lot of nude girls in here..hehe.. your signature didn't lie
    I suppose you're already working on anatomy and such, seeing as how you pointed out that there were stuff that was off.. Have you picked up Loomis, Bridgman or some or another anatomy-book? That is, if you want to study anatomy from books..

    I'm diggin on these two!

    Keep 'em coming!

    I think you could benifit from doing some more head and neck studys of the structure! Alot of your necks and heads seem to be odly shaped or the necks are to thin or to thick or just not on the head properly! Look over them and check your reference or no reference look in the mirrow you will see what i mean... Keep on sketching!

    Maybe I should do a hundred necks after I'm finished with the noses then.

    Ten more noses by the way:

    Thanks, Icey.

    And now ten more noses. ( Why isn't plural of nose nice ? )
    I don't think this batch did go as well as the others though, but here it is anyway. All the noses in this one belongs to Winona Ryder btw, hehe.

    A portrait. Started out as a quickie and then i began to spend a couple of hours on it. Maybe a bit too long ?

    The 100-noses project is a bit on hold. Got a little tired of them, but I HAVE to finish them.
