    Zergaloth Sketchbook

    Never hurts to share your sketches with others, I guess. Inspiriation for others, advice from others, etc. So let's get started. Here are some hand studies I did last night - I'm going to focus on anatomy.
    Crits pls.

    Some of the pencil lines have dissappeared with the scan, anyone has a solution - I tried Levels in Photoshop already, no result.

    I miss volume in all these sketches. For example the one with the open palm - There's no volume in that, but when I draw every line my hand has, it's just a mess.

    I like your studies Zergaloth really guid.

    Btw, uhhh, you might want to smoothe you shading a bit. and in the last two studies, the fingers look too small.

    but I do zat all ze time

    and thanks for your really good replies on my "finished" piece.

    Shading. I really should work on that indeed. I always go totally when I see pieces with real fine crosshatching. How do they do that without turning it into a mess? And if it takes hours to do it, is it still a sketch?

    Yes it is still, a sketch, if thats what you think it is. It's only really a finished piece if you say it is.

    I stick to smudging. shade in lightly then smudge it.

    Oh no, I hate that. Now thát makes it look messy.
    Besides, I'm a pen and ink guy, so I really need to do proper crosshatch-shading.

    the hands are lookin good, and i do agree about the shading needing work
    the 2nd one from the bottom, the fingers look kind of long in comparison with the other fingers...the bottom hand is lookin great

    hi

    good studies, I am shocking at drawing so can't comment on the quality, but maybe it will be good if you started from the basics, like the bone structure if you have time. It's a hassle I think but seems to work. Also I think the trick to drawing the hand is getting the proportion absolutely right. Your last one seems to be the best out of the lot.

    I am not a smudge man myself, I did a fair bit of cross hatching but now only hatch, try hatching in pen, that sort of helps. But you should concentrate on form and getting it right before getting into techniques though, techniques come naturally after a while.

    Hope to see more.

    all i can say is keep drawing,look at drawing styles you like and even copy them, especially masters. one really good thing about them is you have a boldness in your line. you are not afraid of mistakes and once you "get it" I see you using that same boldness accurately. good job so far. and this is your bible http://www.saveloomis.orgSave Loomis

    Good start to your sketchbook. Slight proportion problems but you are already orking them out by the looks of it. Have to agree on loomis that man will get you there.

    Hi! Nice start, I'm always digging studies crits would be that the fingers you drew are having some issues with several things. In the first drawing, the thumb is looking weird, and the second finger (you know, the pointing one) is overal too flat. Remember that the finger is thicker at the base than at the tip. The hand in the last drawing (upper pencil-hand) has some serious proportion-problems. I'd suggest that you do some bone-studies of the hand in order to get a right feeling for the proportions and struckture of it. But I think you'll master this in no-time!

    Amazing - thanks for the site!
    Will post more of these soon, I'm drawing like hell.

    PS: I don't suppose anyone has done the work of putting all those pages together in one printable file?

    You need to post more images!! And another thing I forgot to add, was that I like the movement your getting in the drawings so far lookin goood!

    You want to improve in the croshatching you say, well I'd say that the second last hand there, is pretty good crosshatching just practice in a fine tip pen, then you be forced to use crosshatching. and yeah, Loomis is great. I learned a lot from loomis about hands.
