    Icon 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.

    Hej Farvus. Nie trzeba zawsze rysowac z zywych modeli(-ek) - zdjecie tez nie jest zle. Co prawda lepiej z "zywca" ale jak nie mozna to zdjecie tez ujdzie. Takie cwiczenia z rysowaniem tego co sie widzi w pokoju tez sa potrzebne. Mozna troche perspektywe pocwiczyc, kreske - np. tak jak z ksiazkami tutaj - probowac je narysowac jedna pewna linia. Widac ze w rysunkach postaci twoje kreski nie sa takie pewne.

    Podrawiam

    SirGreenSock - I decided to give more importance to lines in my drawings. No eraser used in this one so some mistakes are visible.

    thirdeye - Ciężko mi jest się przekonać do rysowania z fotografii ale masz rację. Lepsze to niż nic.

    No. 73 - Another life drawing from my room.

    No. 74 - Photo referenced drawing.

    Just dropping by and taking a look

    As pointed out earlier, your perspective studies are really good! I like them. I like the thumbnail figures, also.

    Overal I'd say you developed a good eye through your studies already. A few anatomical issues with the last 2 posts but that'll come with time, too. I'd just suggest that you work some more on your faces, though. Right now, they look like you throw the features (Eyes, nose, mouth) on them like they are painted there. I'd like to see that you include them more into the skull, then you'll get much better at that, too.

    You're getting better! Post more

    ~Faust~ - Thanks for advices. The main problem is the size of the drawing. The face was so small that I couldn't make it look 3d

    No. 86 - I used painting as reference - Gerard von Honthorst "Laughing violinist"

    No. 87, 88 - Head sketches from imagination. I've got more problems with female faces.

    Some good stuff in here man. I like no.70. loose lines and pretty decent form. I prefer work like that, but like other people have said, you have some good perspective studies. Keep working on it and you'll improve in no time.

    you have really good stuff going on here, and even better, you are like improving with each and every post you make, though keep in mind that every line should have a meaning, in your more early posts, they sometimes get a bit messy, but that is getting better and better with each post, so you'll get there

    Female faces have the problem that, unlike mans faces, the more detail you put in them, the more ugly they become. At least, when you don't do it absolutely right. I think you should do some studies of the features separately like eyes, nose etc. That is to truly understand the structure of them. Right now, most eyes you draw are ellipses. In reality, eyes are circles, embedded into the skull.

    Whatever, looking good so far keep pushing

    yAdam - To me No.70 has too loose lines. I prefer more detailed and clean drawings.

    Haldor - Thanks.

    ~Faust~ - It's good that you reminded me this. I'll work on that. Thanks for feedback .

    No. 92 - Eye studies.

    No. 93, 94 - My right hand studies.

    No. 95 - Some quick perspective.

    PS. I had some serious problems with uploading to imageshack. I hope it will work better in next days.

    I'm tired today so I made only one drawing from reference (Book "Gnomes"). It was mainly shading practice.

    No. 96 - The gnome.

    armando - Yes. I look old on this selfportrait. I plan to do new one. Thanks for suggestion.

    van - thanks.

    Recently I've been practicing some animation. I know this is forum if for conceptart but I'll post some here.

    No. 99 - Here I made few illustrations for my small RPG game. These were supposed to look cartoon-like and I'm quite satisfied.

    Hey buddy Doing great. Your sketches are improving with every update

    Widac duze postepy. Fajny autoportret - narysowany pewniejsza kreska, studia anatomii tez niezle. Perspektywy miejscami za mocno rysowane - szczegolnie jesli chodzi o niektore linie konstrukcyjne i pomocnicze. Powstaje za duzo tzw. siana (np na rys 69) - wiem ze nie latwo tak rysowac ale najlepiej robic to jedna linia

    Gnom to juz smakolyk - ladnie narysowany, czysto i schludnie, odpowiednia ilosc linii itp. ladnie widac forme - dobrze wycieniowany. Fajny rysuek. Sprobuj robic wlasne rysunki tak zeby mialy taka jakosc.

    Jak masz problemy z imageshack to sprobuj z www.photobucket.com ja mam 2 konta - tylko dzieki temu nie mam dead linkow.

    thirdeye - jeśli chodzi o gnoma to naszkicowałem go lekko twardym ołówkiem i potem bardziej miękkim pogrubiłem niektóre linie, dlatego tak czysto wygląda.
    Czasami jednak wolę przedłożyć szkicowość nad wysoką jakość. Dzięki za spory komentarz .

    No. 97 - Life drawings.

    No. 98 - Heads from imagination. I'm still not satisfied .

    My criticism for your self portrait from Oct 16 is you made yourself look middle aged, but you were born in 83. The reasons for this are thin lips, stressed naso-labial fold, hanging earlobes, and the hair line. Realize that this drawing wasn't a failure though, and use these types of features when drawing other middle aged people. My other advice would be to study ellipses, you're kinda just freehanding them in perspective, a trick to remember is that the long axis of the ellips is always perpendicular to it's vanishing point. Once you get comfortable with this your head construction will improve.
