    GreenSock's Sketchbook Diarrhea

    New Stuff on the Bottom.

    Hi everyone.

    Been lurking for a long time now with few posts in-between, so I've finally decided to start posting regularly.
    I am a highschool student here in Toronto, Canada, working towards a career in concept art/illustration. After looking through the sketchbook threads here, I've been inspired and have been making myself draw in my sketchbook for at least 90 minutes every day. This thread will hopefully motivate me to work faster and improve myself more.
    Comments and critiques are most welcome!

    Here's a quick dump of some of the recent work I've done in my sketchbook.

    some sketches

    contour study of sleeping classmate

    sketch of my eye in watercolour


    Some concepts. Used references to get ideas for armor

    quick gesture/sketch in ballpoint pen

    Lots more to come
    Thanks for looking

    These next two were done using ink refill cartridges from my old inkjet printer




    These two were inspired by Marko Djurdjevic




    These ones were done using El Coro's technique. I didn't have access to alcohol-based ink, so I had to use water-based which ruined the grain

    this one is another self-portrait, turned out skewed since I moved too much while drawing.

    sketches from life and photos




    Thats all. Sorry about the huge dump, had a lot of work I wanted to share
    Once again, comments and crits are very much welcome!
    Thanks for looking.

    You seem to be progressing rather well, I recommend you just practice more anatomy/proportions. Everything seems good, nice and loose.

    Not much else to say, just keep practicing.

    Thanks for the comments incognito.
    I was actually planning on doing a couple of studies based on some of the anatomy books I have, just as soon as a friend of mine returns them.

    I don't think I'll have enough time to draw today, too many projects due next week, so I'll post some stuff from my life-drawing class that my teacher returned (she keeps most of our stuff until the end of the year for some reason )

    a 20 minute study:

    I think these were 30 second gestures:

    10 minute clothed proportion study:

    A series of 15 minute clothed studies from different angles:

    And a skeleton study on which I seriously messed up the proporitons:

    I like your loose lines. Nice expressive style!

    Btw. Why do I end up in Brokencows SB when I click the link in your sig.?

    That deformed skeleton actually looks really cool! Almost like a Gulf War Syndrome Baby's skeleton...

    Good 30 second gestures, gestures are always a big help, along with drawing dime-sized figures! Really helps you to get the proportions right because at that size it's all proportion, no detail! Keep working hard on the portraits and anatomy studies, they're both coming along.

    The only critique I had was that there are too many jagged and stray lines on your sketches. I did this too, but the way I got past it was to think about the lines and shapes, visualize them in my head, before I put them down on paper.

    Keep it up and you've got an insanely strong start to your sketchbook!

    Thanks a lot for the comments and crits IanE.

    Yeah, 30sec gestures and small studies are really helpful, I have a bunch more of them that I drew during some of my classes, I'll post them up once I actually find them.

    And I agree with you on my linework, its something that I've trying to work on for a while. I'm planning on doing a couple of pages of sketches just in pen, that way I'm forced to get the correct lines and forms the first time.

    I think I'll have some more work posted either tonight or tomorrow morning.

    I really need to start practicing anatomy.


    Couple of studies


    Practicing somewhat less boring poses




    Most of these were done in pen, to practice making more precise lines.

    More stuff for today:

    Some gouache, watercolour and ink sketches, the one on the right is another self-portrait. These were fun since was the first time using gouache and watercolour without a preliminary pencil sketch

    200+ views and 3 people replied?

    Another update, took a bit more time with these ones.



    Practice at rendering, it turned out pretty good, but I still need practice. Any advice or crits on this one are very welcome!

    Thanks for looking!

    274 views and still no new replies?

    Didn't have a lot of time to draw yesterday, but I did do a couple of gouache and watercolour studies/sketches/experiments


    This is a work in progress picture I'm working on for art class. I'm doing three in this series in Painter, then printing them as mini-posters.

    very nice stuff !

    but one thing i noticed is that you are very uneven in your art, the result can vary too much some times.. almost looks like 2 artists.. one suggestion would be maybe to think of tightening it up alittle bit ? 2 cents, take em or throw em away


    cheers !

    Thanks a lot for the reply!

    I agree with you on the "uneven-ness" and looseness in my work. It's something I still have to work on.
    My main problem right now is slowing down and taking my time with my work rather than trying to finish too fast and miss on the details.
    I'm actually starting to do a couple of master study paintings for my history class, so maybe that will help me tighten up.

    Another update, haven't had time to do any studies yet, too many due dates.
    I did do some sketches, they'll do for now.


    I'm going to come back to this one later to fix his anatomy and give him some armor or something.

    No model in life drawing class today...So I drew some classmates and other doodles:



    I have already started a couple of the aforementioned master studies, but I don't want to post them until they reach a semi-decent state.
    Thanks for looking

    A bit more for tonight. Did some studies instead of working on school stuff.

    A cruddy-looking gouache experiment:


    And a gouache study of Android's self-portrait (May 22, 2003)

    Re:)

    Hey Sir Green Sock....I can notice a progression in your work. You're starting to notice proportion is vital and would be intersting to see where this would this would lead you in the next few months of sketching....keep it up

    You have some great sketches here; I especially like the watercolor eye. Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing more master studies (I'm an art history buff).

    Thanks for the comments razuel.

    I'm glad you like the eye, its one of my favorite sketches here.
    And you'll be seeing more master studies, since I have to do 5 more Madonna studies for history class.

    I'll have another update tomorrow, been doing some anatomy studies that I'll scan in the morning.

    Here's the update for today:

    Loomis Anatomy studies. Didn't turn out too well, I still need a lot of practice.



    And some studies/sketches I did before going to sleep:

    Here's some sketches I did over the weekend and today. I'm going to do more anatomy sketches either tonight or tomorrow.

    Playing with exaggerated movement:

    Hi
    Nice stuff! Good studies, and I really like your ink doodles and you drawings of classmates - drawing from life is a great way to learn, I think
    Keep them coming!

    Great Progress on the sketches. In terms of your colour studies I think they have a tendency to look very muddy and no gradation in tones. Keep up the good work

    Thanks for the comments Nike and Draw.

    In terms of colour studies, I think you're right Draw. Working with colour is a problematic area for me. I plan on starting to play with oil and digital studies to improve on my colour work.

    Sorry for the long delay, I've been busy lately with school projects.
    I didn't have time to really sit down and draw that much, mostly doodles and sketches. Here's some of the less-crappy stuff:


    Colour study/failed self-portrait

    Wow, long time no update

    Been in a bit of a creative slump and overwhelmed with schoolwork for a while, but I still managed to fill up an entire sketchbook since the last update.
    Most of it is boring stuff while I was in the slump, I'll just post the stuff worth looking at and spare some bandwith
    Thanks to everyone for the support and help to far, this community has really inspired me to work harder and improve. I've recently come out my slump, and drawing seems to be more fun than ever now. Lots more stuff to come, only 2.5 weeks of school left!!
    Here are the pics, sorry if there are too many, had a lot to share...

    2 Value studies referenced from domai

    Self-portrait. Was playing with holding pencil sideways, since then, thats my favorite way to render.

    Torso sketches from photos, paintings and imagination:

    Study of Velazquez's Pope Innocent X

    Some stuff done for my Graphic Arts project



    Self-portrait using two-mirror setup


    done from reference:

    unfinished stuff inspired by various people's sketchbooks:


    Self-portrait


    A marker self-portrait, and some stuff I plan on finishing:



    As always, critiques and comments are welcome.
