    Farvus' Imaginarium

    Sketchbook I thread
    (starts here)
    Hi to all,

    This is my first post on this forum. I already have some experience beacause I've been drawing since childhood (now I'm 22). Unfortunately there is a disturbing feeling that I stay on the same level all the time. The reason is obvious. I don't draw too often. Here I have perfect ocassion to get encouraged in daily routine in sketching .
    I have problem mainly with stiff, unnatural character poses. My other problem is that sometimes I overdo some drawings. I'll try to draw from life a lot...
    Here are first two pages:

    are you taking any classes? Sometimes bieng in class forces you to start drawing alot more. Then, even when the class is over you continue to draw more than you did before. I like some of these studies, Hope to see more from you.

    I was taking lessons frequently few years ago. Now I study architecture and once a week there are composition lessons where I mainly paint still nature. I can see the profits of this right now but only in positioning the objects, proportions of picture and so on. My only occasion to improve in drawing right now is sketchbook. I plan to make some still nature model in my room. Maybe some day it will be accomplished .
    Thanks for encouragement. Of course will be some more...
    With next sketches I tried to make lighter values and no chaotic rendering. In opposite do this more linework with varied thickness. It's really hard to draw such flowy lines. I noticed that sometimes a good warm up for this is sketching from some dynamic reference. With next pictures my hand looses a bit this bad habit of this "hay rendering" style. I hope you know what I mean .

    No. 7 - From life. This was actually made on Composition lesson mentioned above .

    No. 8- Not very satisfying self-portrait.

    No. 9 - It is my friend wooden mannikin (from Ikea) that lives on my window-still. He was covered in dust for a long time but now I find him very useful.

    No. 10 - Finally some drawing from imagination. At the end I used eraser a lot because of changing my mind few times. Not good. Not good. Too much mess.

    PS. Well. Besides drawing I can improve my english here .

    Today's sketches. I don't like these paper marks but I can't remove them beacause sketches will loose much of their middle tones.

    No. 11 - From life

    No. 12 - Characters from Loomis.

    No. 13 - Only faces

    No. 14 - But I don't like Dragonball

    Nice stuff. It's hard to realize improvement sometimes, but the best way to improve is to draw as much as possible. I will tell you from experience that the more time you put in every day, the more you will improve! Good luck and hope to see more from you.

    yeah...drawing is like Bodybuilding !
    And if you really can`t see any improvements than just look at the pitures you`ve done 4-5 months ago...and you will see it

    hmmm i definately like your anatomical studies (e.g. the feet) a lot more than your other stuff...don`t draw from instinct if you make somehing without reference. (it seems like you do). Thats something for the moe "high-class" artists that have the knowledge in their flesh ! Draw with a acktive use of your knowledge. Like saying yourself "Hah the Deltoid have to bend this way and connects to the bone of the upper arm...this way it overlaps a bit of the trizeps..." ...or better just think it or people will call you crazy ^^

    No. 17 - Something different this time. More like comic style.

    i have the same problem, besides i work to live.. and time is short... how the hell shud you be creative with so much real life hassle? It is easy take your time and search for something that interrests u, then draw and study it...

    your art shows progress, but do you really want bad enough to break your limits? il see u soon

    I see some good stuff here man - nice start.
    My advice is to have fun with drawing - instead of pushing your self too hard. Sometimes just draw ugly - i do that a lot. Just let your hand dance on the paper - dont worry about how it looks just enjoy how it feels!
    Then when you have danced for a while, slow down take a new paper and do some cool stuff. Use tons of refs and life. Look at poses and lightning and stuff. Draw something you have never drawn before.
    Main thing is - have fun while learning!
    Good work man.

    Cold, Fellah -> You're both right. It's just that for a first week I wanted to force myself to draw regularly no matter how good will be the result. I got used to it enough and from this point I am also more conscious of many things that I should work on. I think I will slow down a little focus more on quality (and fun ) than quantity.

    I see that sometimes that when I sketch, I don't try to look for some better form. Just finish it very early with thick contour line. Then there is just a bit too fast rendering and I end up with something average. Maybe it's some anxiety of getting too indecisive or chaotic drawing?

    Anyway, I will just continue drawing. Thanks a lot for all suggestions.

    PS. In first posts I changed from images to direct links so that this thread can load faster.
