    JLC's Sketchbook-o-rama - 07/06/06

    Hi there CA,

    I've been awed by art and creativity my whole life. It has come out in different ways over the years - drawing, music, and recently drawing again. Just recently I've decided to really put some effort into improving my artistic ability.

    I took a couple community college night classes (drawing 1 & 2) to get into the swing of things. I've been working on a journal of sorts to help with creativity. I have a few sketchbooks floating around that I am going to work on filling up. I've been hanging out on CA and taking inspiration from all the extremely talented folks here.

    Decided to start a SB as encouragement to myself to keep going, to learn from the rest of you, and to look back at some point and see real progress. The first couple posts will be stuff from over the last six months or so. Thanks for taking a look!

    Not bad. Just keep practicing, especially stuff from life like those salt and pepper shakers.

    Small update. Scans are a little light.

    First two are referenced from an artists anatomy book I have. They were started last month and I just finished tonight. I know, I'm on fire and better slow down huh? Last one I drew tonight in about 20 minutes from a photo ref. Comments, crits, and suggestions are all welcomed!

    Loomis study from today. Been meaning to work through his books. Looking at this now, they seem either lopsided or leaning. I think it has to do with pushing or pulling a line. I'll have to work at that.

    Hey, dude thanks for checking my SB. Really nice works here, i really love the one with a mug and a shoe. It's great how u managed to give it a sense of transparency to that glass. And the folds on that piece of cloth look really cool. Nice and please keep as tuned with more posts. Cheers!!

    Hey, nice contrast of styles! I like the focus you take on individual elements. Thanks for stopping by my book also!

    The feet in this one are very well done indeed!

    Ooh, nice studies you've got there. I'm liking the life studies, and the various anatomy studies are looking good. That leaf really stood out to me, though. Very nice values and form. From another relative newcomer, welcome to CA!

    Thanks for the complements and encouragement folks!

    Couple new ones all loosely from photo refs. These make me want to practice more and more. Specifically, hands, eyes, and line quality.

    Thanks for the word in my sb, thought I´d return the favour.
    You´ve got some well executed still lifes here as well as good figure drawings. Advice, critique, suggestions? Hmm, I´m only a beginner myself, but I think you´re doing all the right things to improve quickly. Maybe throw some perspective studies in the mix and always remember that perspective is not only about drawing buildings, but about representing 3D objects on a 2D surface.
    Nice work so far, keep going!

    Taxman Thanks for the kind words. I'll try to work some perspective studies in. Drawing people in perspective always appears pretty tough - I'll try to target that when I get a chance.

    Couple quickies. Toy was maybe an hour and the letter J was about 5 minutes. Had life reference for both. Man, I need more time for this stuff!!
