    Erilaz's Sketchiness. Alphabet sketching. 15/02/09

    Okay, this is hard. I've been viewing the sketchbook forum for quite a few months now, always awed at the amazing work people have contributed and the inspiring leaps of skill beginners and professionals have made through their time here. It's time I faced up to my fears of inadequacy and let you view my work, if only to be provoked further into making myself a better artist. So here goes:

    This here's a pencil sketch (2H) of a lady I on the tram to work this morning. I like tram sketching because i've got about 5 minutes before my subject gets off! I need to work on stronger contrasts in my sketches, if only to get them to scan well!

    A couple of pencil studies from last night. Most will recognise where the study of Norman Rockwell comes from, it's part of his famous self portrait. I love Rockwell!:

    A study of michelangelo's libyan sibyl in PS:

    Another PS study of Durer's feet:

    I'm presently ripping into Loomis and doing studies of the masters on recommendation from my upcoming tutor. I'm about to start an intensive course on anatomy drawing, so hopefully you will see improvements in the coming weeks!

    Thanks for visiting. Drill me!

    Martin,

    Great to see your work here! Though...why not on my forum? Totally kidding, I hope this will be of great help to you and I'm sure we will see great things from you!

    Cheers!

    Good start. It's nice to see someone's improvement from the beginning.

    You could get stronger contrast for the "Lady in tram" by just leaving some parts untouched (I mean white). Softer pencil then 2H would be also better

    Keep it up... of course.

    That foot drawing is awesome Erilaz. I'll leave the indepth critique to the experts. But good to see you getting into this.
    I hope I'll find the courage to start posting my sketches here soon.

    Update 20/09/05

    Just another da vinci study for today. Pencil (2h and 2b):
    Erilaz's Sketchiness.  Alphabet sketching. 15/02/09


    Rebeccak : CGTalk will always be my first love rebecca, don't worry. Thanks for your continual support! I'm sure the workshop is going to be fascinating!
    Farvus : Yes, you're right. 2H is a difficult medium to work with to get strong contrasts. I do prefer the good old 2B.
    Queensoul Queenie, you're more than ready to post a sketchbook here! Thanks for the praise on the foot. It's one of the few i've been proud of recently!
    Art2 : Thanks buddy. I'll try to please!
    That fat kid : Thanks for stopping by! I've dropped into your thread and your work is going really well! I have to comment more on people's books. Curse you dial up connection! You're right about the softer pencils. I'll work them more. I've leant away from softs because I hate getting a smudgy book. And yes, I've DEFINATELY seen Wes9000's work. Most of them are printed up on my walls for inspiration!

    try to pay attention to proportion with your figures. if the head is big, make sure that the shoulders and the rest of the body are sized accordingly. otherwise, your just making cartoons.

    good studies

    good studies, but i am with az in the realm of proportions. it is better to get everything in proportion than it is to be able to render it well in my books. if you have something that isn't proportionate but rendered well it looks like you were just in a rush, unless that is what you are trying to go for. keep up the work and practice on the proportions and construction of what you are drawing before getting too far into rendering it.

    Okay! Big update. I completed Rebecca Kimmel's workshop recently, so here's the results:
    These studies are taken from "Artistic Anatomy" by Paul Richer and "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist" by the author Stephen Rogers Peck. Great books!
