    the reincarnation of deryk's sketchbook (UPDATE: october 17, 2007)

    hey guys.

    i've been spending too much time salivating over the wonder that is you guys' artwork and it's time i got off my behind and created a sketchbook of my own. if i expect to leave this absolute beginner stage at all, i've got to practice right?

    anyway, i guess introductions are in order. my name's deryk de guzman from manila, philippines. i'm a software engineer by profession (just graduated, yay me!) but i'm also a wannabe artist.

    gonna post everyday for practice, so wish me luck with finding time and all.

    here's my first post. laugh it up for now, cause by page 99 of this forum, i'll be at least 1% better than this hahaha.

    some random biker gang dude. w/o reference, 4B graphite all the way.

    hum, this is really good!

    I like the first pic att the top. My advise to u would be to work on proportions and anatomy tho. Better to practise that before starting to practise rendering, I think. Try also to use a bit more hard pencils when sketcheng. HB is the best one I think.
    And of course I gonna give u the tip to get your self your very own book abaout the human anatomy. It's very important. Otherwise try using Loomis stuff from the net.

    NIce sketches, u got the potential!

    update may 07, 2005

    i got the scott robertson and feng zhu dvd's from gnomon and, in a flash of inspiration, decided to try and create something while taking a break from studying the dvds.

    here's a concept for a robot sentry i did earlier today. sketched and painted in painter ix.

    still getting the hang of drawing on a tablet. some lines just seem to be harder to draw than others hehehe.

    critiques would be highly appreciated!

    I like the coloring on the sentry. The shadow, however, doesn't look like it's cast by that particular robot.

    Also, how was the DVD?

    I'm looking forward to seeing this thread fill.

    Craig Houghton: the dvds are great so far. i don't know if i just had it in me all along, but i noticed significant improvements are watching the dvds carefully and practicing the techniques. i think its also important to mention that i got the dvds as much for inspiration as i did for information. watching feng speed sketch those robots from out of nowhere makes you just wanna draw for hours on end. and yep, my neck hurts from doing concepts of my own now.


    thanks for the critique. i saw the shadow looked odd but couldn't quite put my finger on it. would you be able to suggest a fix? thanks a bunch.

    wuts up man. youve got a good handle on rendering, i would suggest while you do imagination work do some antatomy studies. it looks like with a little bit of that your work will up a notch. nice stuff

    messing around with environment thumbnails, as inspired by the feng dvd. dont mind the color spots.. just some mistakes i need to erase. i'm gonna try to add some values to this sketch soon.

    edit: the object to the right that doesn't seem to fit in with the buildings is one of those no parking signs in extreme close-up. you'll see it later on but if you think it's a building as well then it's gonna look totally out of perspective.

    update #2 - may 11, 2005

    this one started out with just the guy in the suit. i later had an irresistible urge to try and paint an environment around him. this was actually started before i worked on the city street concept above.

    corky13: thanks for the compliment. i plan to post up a lot more environment designs. i'm trying to study proper environment drawing at the moment so i'll definitely have more up with different motifs.
