    The Sugar-Coated Moleskine

    update : May 16th, 2009

    i'm off school for the summer, next year i have a co-op placement during the summer before my final year of school... so this is my last summer as a student before i need to take my work seriously (the majority of the time).. i want to grow as much as possible between now and september, and any advice or tips or crits or anything at all that you have to add would be so incredibly appreciated.

    [heart]

    -----------------------------

    i've had this sketchbook up for 3 years now.. instead of starting new ones all the time like some people are doing here.. i figure it's more honest to just keep it all in one place.. and then when i grow we can all see how much.. i'm attempting to post SOMETHING at least once a week.. that's my goal until the new year, and then.. we'll see.

    Couldn't view?

    I saw two...the keys were neat and the building one wasn't bad but I would say you need to work on your line quality.

    Keep at it! And good luck with Sheridan. If you live in Toronto...there is a group of illustrators that meet up every sunday to do life drawing on the subway. Check out www.imaginism.com and you'll find out more info about it.

    like the first one, tho her eyes seem a bit wacky
    and definately the building one is nice

    and furthermore
    I would say you need to work on your line quality.

    the eyes looked kinda messed if it was a drawing from life.. but i intentionally gave her larger eyes... completely from my head, that one is

    as far as line quality.. any suggestions? i've been told that before but i don't know exactly what is being referred to, and how can i correct it?

    Heya! Love this stuff, especially the glass's and the trippy image with the girl right undfer it. For line quality, blind contours really helped me, you should try doing some of your hands or a SP. Also, don't go over the mistakes...I STILL do this. And try to FEEL the surface that you're drawing.

    The crosshatching on that last one is a big improvement from some of your early portraits. Nice to see the progress.
    Are your sketchbook drawings done in pencil or ink?

    wahoo.. comments!

    thanks man, i've been browsing alot of sketchbooks on here and am getting a better idea of what works and what doesn't.. i've discovered i just have a really messy way of crosshatching, so i'm trying to work with it for now.. it's amazing how much your ability changes when you make a point to draw everyday.. and i've never done so much drawing from life as i have in the last few months.. most of the things i've drawn have been out of my head..

    thanks again.

    EDIT: oh, and the sketchbook stuff is almost all ink.. i think the only pencil drawings are the very first one on this page, the building, and the glass... i try not to do too much pencil in the sketchbook anymore.. i find it smudges when the pages rub against eachother.. and i'm trying to get into watercolour so when i get the urge to colour up a drawing, the pen is waterproof so i won't be able to procrastinate it any longer.. heh

    I love your stuff, really nice drawings.
    Perhaps the line quality has to do with the paper...which kind of paper are you using?
