    SprayZ SketchZ

    Well, I'm not really new to CA. I'm constantly viewing peoples work on this site for inspiration, and I love the feedback people get from professionals here at CA. I have plenty of old work to post, but my plan is to only post new work. I've attended CCAD (Columbus College of Art & Design) for two years and I'll be a junior in the fall. Well here's some of the sketches from my sketchbook. I've kind of dubbed it my from-the-mind-sketchbook, since I almost always work from life or photographs. CC most certainly welcome.

    Great stuff! Lotsa nice rendering!

    Work more on the shapes as in anatmoy (which is more or less the basic rule here), but this promise good works to come!

    What pencils and paper are you using?

    Yeah, I've been pretty frustrated with how I've been drawing figures lately. What can I do to improve them. I do pretty well whenever I have a model or photo in front of me. To be honest, I rarely work straight from the mind. I'll just keep practicing and post whenever I see improvement.
    I'm using a basic strathmore sketchbook, but I colorized the first sketch in photoshop. Thought it needed a little color. Pencils, I used an HB, B, and 2B.

    Primarily, I do portraits. Here's a couple I did back at school. All of them are in my sketchbook, except the guy on the bench. That one was done on bristol board with an HB, B, and a 2B. Rendering comes pretty naturally to me; however, I envy those that can paint and draw loosely. Whenever I draw loosely I tend to lose form.

    thanks for the post in my thread
    the first post is shaded so smoothly
    drawing loosely is just to get the basic shapes in
    you can always fix the proportions when rendering
    the one with the guy on the bench is amazing too

    nice stuff, your sense of refinement is nice on the more finished pieces!

    work on getting the base form right early on though (i've got the same problem).. you did it well in that small page with the hands, those are great!

    keep it up, and welcome to ca.org!!!

    dashi: thanks for lookin'! Need lots of feedback from other artists. Sometimes when I spend too much time in my hole I lose direction. Need people to guide me out.

    blankslatejoe: You are correct sir. I usually don't work out the gesture enough and all of my figures, beasts, and aliens come out looking way too static. Drawing hands gives me something simple to practice on. They came out with energy, but not the other sketches.

    Alright, I'm going to post today's sketches, but I don't have a scanner. So I'll spend the next hour taking digital photo's of them. That means check back tomorrow, they'll be more sketches then.

    Wow - great renderings. Drawing the figure will come with time and a shitload of hard work. You're at the right place...draw from the live model as much as you can, and study your anatomy.
    I think with some more experience and anatomical knowledge your work is going to be tops. You already render beautifully...looking forward to seeing more!
