    The entrée sketchbook - March 28th update

    Well, after drifting arround this site for at least a year and a half and not posting much at all, I decided it was time for me to create a sketchbook thread. Posted a few bits and pieces last year, but its time to face my fears and do this thing. I've been inspiried again and again by all the wonderful art posted here, but also by the people who's art has developed during the course of thier sketchbook thread.

    and a little man in my head was jumping up and down "me too, me too"

    so here is some work I've been doing over the past week or two:yayca:

    these all are quite quick, not very refined, but i usually am to impatient to detail....
    reply would be great....:x

    Well damn, you've been busy. :p

    Those horse studies are pretty nifty, I could never get horses down pat. I really like some of the more interesting poses you've done, in particular the dude with the huge ruck, and the collection of sketches of the guy getting up (sitting down?) off the swivel chair. You've got some nice value studies, too.

    Hey man, nice filled up pages you got here. Glad you're experimenting with ink and enjoying it, keep it going! The charcoal portrait with white highlights is nice too; using just the right amounts of white. Only crit is that the eye seems flat and unrealistic. You might want to round it out a little, notice the way it fits into the socket with the folds of the eye and what not. And just a small note, some of the images are a little big, making it difficult to see the work as a whole. Maybe resizing them to be just a liiitle bit smaller would help us in seeing it without scrolling up and down. Either way dude, keep it up! And post post post. Cheers.

    What a day
    Zord - thanks buddi, great to hear from ya. yep lookin at it now, i can see the eye has little depth.Btw, thats graphite not charcol, me and charcol never got along so well.maybe I'll try it sometime

    Anyway, here are some pages from my sketchbook. They are heavily based on work from my fav artists here, Sinix and Wes2000, those guys are inspiring.
    If im not supposed to put um this kinda work, so jus tell me and i'll take em down.

    Hey dooood, cool to see you jumping head first into acrylics. Don't worry about the outcome, as success only comes with lots of time and lots of practice. Your lines are coming along, they're more confident than before. If I can offer just one crit, the guy you colored [digitally i'm guessing] his body is a little too big. The body doesn't shrink down in size, but you can work out anatomy issues with studies and more drawing. So just keep it up man, draw draw draw, studies studies studies. Cheers.

    hey thanks for the comment! you've made lots of progress yourself. likin the pen doodles all i have to say is proportions and it seem you're already on that. oh and eyes, although i'm sure you like cartoon style eyes and it fits well sith your style. it always helps to have a better understanding of real eyes. it'd be nice to see some gestures of eyes from the mirror or something. later

    Hello my oceanic friend, wonderful to see your progress so far, your studies are excellent and show good improvement from the first post.

    One thing I will say is try to make your lines more efficient, try not to use 2 lines if one will suffice, there is a tendency for people who are still finding their drawing legs to do that. Use long clean strokes and make sure you pay attention to line weight.

    Cheers, Darren.

    I think your studies studies are the best peices here.Seriously.I would recommed you do more doodling of life drawing.Start dong more life drawings.One more thing, application ,apply your studies to your renders and other works.
    They help a lot.
    Take care and keep posting.

    My god...

    I myself cannot say very much, save to say that even these are quite impressive.

    It appears that I will have to go and have a good looksee at your other works.

    Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey"
    died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the
    coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the
    trouble started.

    Hey si its jace,felt guilty for neglecting this site after we had a chat the other day so yeah.heh..your work is comin along good just keep at it things will start to click the more you hack away at it.dont be afraid to use reference or even copy an image you like to an exactness (is that even a word?) we only ever learn to imitate life in art by copying it first,personal style comes after..

    sweet,see you in class mate ..
