    Sketchbook of NoŽ

    Hey there! I have a new sketchbook: --> Click Here <--

    Hi all!

    So.. This is my first post,
    My name is Marleen Renders, 15 years of age (EDIT; turned 19, the 16th of february 2009 damn I'm getting old! Been here for 4 years already) , and live in the Netherlands.
    I've been browsing the conceptart forum since a long time ago and I guess I thought it was time for me to register now .

    I'll post some sketches I've been doing lately.
    (Most of the time during boring casses in school)
    I don't have much time to really finish a drawing or to get better with my photoshop skills, but very soon there's the vacation..
    You can see some more of my stuff here

    Hi there
    Good thing starting a sb. Keep hitting the paper. If you draw doing boring classes ( which i always did too ), it might be a good idea making life drawings of your classmates. And its free You will learn a lot of things very fast drawing from life like that.

    good start.. when shading use more variation so you can tell the darkest areas from the lighter shadows. and when drawing hair don't try and draw every strand, just give a suggestion of it.

    totally agree about doing the sketches in class (i'm not saying not to pay attention...) but high school classes get real borin sometimes. i just posted one thing i did during italian, on some of your faces, the mouth looks a bit small

    yep, it's true, I need to do faces from more angles.
    will print some references soon so I can work on that better.
    I made a face (front view again) a few days ago, but I'm afraid to place shadows in the face for I think it will ruin it. But well, the sketch isn't exactly finished this way so I guess I'll try it soon.

    Thanks for the comments!

    Long live drawing on the borders of notebook paper at the same time of taking notes in an Ap Art History class in High School!

    Anyway, what these guys are suggesting is a great idea, but it might also behoove you to delve into the scientific aspect of anatomy. Knowing where muscles are, even if its with a book, can be a great help. I took an anatomy course in high school just to learn the musculature. I mean come on... what am I gonna do with learning what an action potential is and what it has to do with the central nervous system?

    Great start and keep going! You have all the time in the world.

    look what I've become

    Hey great start I really like the ink one of "you" (I assume that's taken from your display picture) and your photo shop one is really turned out great. Draw as much as you can, in boring classes (as someone stated before) when waiting for busses or trains, anytime. I find drawing unsuspecting people is best, as you rush your self into doing it before they notice or walk away so your left hemisphere of your brain wont take over and tell you whats right and whats wrong and you will be surprised with your results (the right hemisphere of your brain is the drawing part, you should not let the left hemisphere interfere if you didn't know) I also suggest reading betty edwards drawing on the right side of the brain, interesting book and turns out AMAZING results. Keep posting more

    there is no ink version of "me" there, these faces were all without reference I think. I also like the 'look at what i've become', but well, the nose needs more shading and stuff. Too bad I gave that one away

    I really want to draw more but right now I can't find the time.. I am sooooo busy, damn school . It's surprising how much work needs to be done, even when you're going to repeat a class. But well. Whatever.
    In two weeks I'll have plenty of time
    Please don't expect much sketches from me untill then

    Marleen.

    (btw. thanks for the kind comments)

    back :P

    Hi
    Here I am again.. I brought a few sketches, some of them I did in class. It actually is kinda hard to draw somebody before the person moves again.
    But well, I tried.

    the eye is well done, already better than mine.
    in your profile views the ears are to small
    the length from eye level to chin usually equals the distance from back of eye to the back of the ear.
    in your quick sketches, don't worry about shading, just try and get the general shape and add details after if you have time.
    you only need maybe 20 minutes a day to draw, better than a few hours once a week, you make better progress that way.

    Hey again,
    it's been a while huh? And it will be a while for I'm kinda very busy this vacation (stupid me , I planned way too many things..)
    Anyways.. I bought a great anatomy drawing book, I decided to draw some arms first. Well.. I did just one, but soon I will do some more.

    My faces aren't good.. I tried to dray my boyfriend yesterday in the train and got stuck on the lips. I think the proportions are not good. He said he liked it and it looks a lot like him but I don't like it. Also the hair and shadowing is stupid . By the way, he was reading a book so that explains the "expression".

    I also tried to draw a worried girl's face. I know the eye should be more to the right and should be moved down a bit. But I was too lazy to do that.

    I like the arm most.
