    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

    Sketches;

    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.

    Hug; NoŽ

    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.

    Sketchbook of NoŽ

    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".
    Sketchbook of NoŽ

    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.

    Hugs!

    Cool teddybear I love your eyes

    I think you should keep those anatomical studies for later. You should concentrate on the basics like proportion.

    Welcome to CA NoŽ (that's a cool name by the way).

    I second what Pes said! Good advice. Studies are always good but keep it simple for now. You've come to the right place to learn! Welcome aboard!

    As you can see i've been drawing a lot at school (i had a lot lot lot of free time today: 3,5 hours of being at school not knowing what to do) i've been practicing the hands, they still need lots of practice because i can draw a hand, but it takes a lot of time to get it right (example).

    Well I would like you to tell me what you think about it

    Love,
    Marleen / NoŽ

    i say more full body studies and the girl gives me some hands. are you deaf!

    anyway, your faces are improving! and your proportions too. heres a tip, try not to feather your lines. practise drawing long, nice strokes, not small repeated ones. and the drawing of the face under the to-do list is reall really good!

    and a cat! draw more

    Hello, good sketches, progressing well, just don't think too much about quality now, try and draw as much as possible. If you do quality control that's good too but don't let that get in the way of drawing things you are uncomfortable with or scared to draw. You are doing awsome, good to see you drawing your class mates.. it's an awsome practice, drawing from life is good.

    I was trying to read the "things to do list" I got the "CD" bit. but that's about it. hehe..

    @ Tie; i wanted to do hands first , and yes master.. i'll draw more cats some day

    @ Bumskee; thank you i try to draw a lot but when i think about other stuff a lot it slips my mind often. But i'll try, especially in school.

    @ 1-thought; well when i have something else than lined paper in front of me the teacher will take it away from me much sooner than if i don't.

    not a big update today, only two little things

    Keep it up! You've got the right attitude and will learn heaps!
    Perhaps try getting some foundations in first when you sketch, such as blocking out your subject before jumping into details.

    your new av is scary. just kidding, i love it. the girl in it is soo pretty. can i have her number?

    i like your recent post, the eye is good and the faces are definately getting better. it seems you have.. dark tastes, hmm? slightly gothic? with all the strange trees and people.

    your hands are good too, but also when drawing them try to think not only about the hand in front of you but the construction of it... how the bones fit together and think of it as a solid 3d object not 2d. sorry i cant help much, i'm no pro art teacher. but please draw more :o or i'll die. and you don't want that right?
