    A Fish's Sketchbook

    I don't really have a lot of sketches scanned nor around at the moment, so I guess ya'll just have to suffer with some slighty-older ones. Kinda going from older to...less old.

    I started coloring this...then stopped. Yeah, I know, it got cut off.

    This is my strigid design. A strigid is the creation of a friend of mine; a hooved mammal plus a bird. Mine is a Pronghorn and a Regal Sunbird.

    Used a ref. Never finished, probably still won't.

    Someday I'll have more up here. Someday.

    Did this just now. Used a ref photo of a bass player at my old high school.

    these look alright except the face, I think you need to learn how the features go

    Hello! I like the portrait of the bass player, it looks like a good likeness, and the unfinished rhino is pretty cool, you've got nice texture there. I think for the big-toothed fish (DSG) you might have wanted to put even lighter colors in for more contrast, but I'm not quite sure on that one -- I think it is pretty close to faint lighting in a dark environment.

    I like your animals, they're really interesting. Nice use of colour too. The bass player guy isn't bad, lots of potential, but some anatomy work and some more understanding of how the features go might help. Try drawing it upside down, you might be too caught up in trying to make the eyes look like how you think eyes should look, etc.

    I really like the colouring you did with the rhino, other then that just keep practicing.

    Mrr. Somehow, instead of being filled with time to draw, I had time to do everything -but- draw this weekend...and Monday. SO. Starting now, I'm drawing at least one thing a day.

    So why the wimpy Pelican now? Because I haven't the time -now-. I'm starting tomorrow, remember? ;P

    Stroke economy man, you could've got a single beautiful curving stroke for that neck for example. It's harder than making all those scratchy lines, but it will definately look better. Keep it up!

    Some muscle anatomy sketches...for the Ides of March? eh. I worked at the arm, then lazed with the chest. Figures.

    These...aren't from an anatomy book. I'm in this program where I go to a site for a field of research that I'm interested in every Wednesday, and I work at a Immunology lab. Unfortunately, there actually -isn't- much work for me to do because I'm only there once a week. So I've started sketching things from the anatomy flash cards that are on my desk.

    Immunology, woot! And what luck, anatomy cards. At least you'll know what you're supposed to be drawing, if not exactly how to draw it. The study looks good, I'm just going to agree with Tenelaus' comment: stroke economy. It's tough, I'm still mucking around with it, but try for less lines or use bigger brushes, that kind of stuff. =]

    What a good use of time. If you need to start sketchy, go ahead, but pick the lines you think are strongest and keep those. Working with a lighter pencil initally and going over the ones you got "right" with a darker one, then erasing the rest might help, I've done that. Works until you get a little more confidance in your work. Don't worry about making it look nice, focus on making an accurate representation of the subject you're looking at. And draw anything and everything, anatomy is great, but so are birds and tables and oranges and the window across the street.

    Everyone: Yup yup. working on line economy at this very moment. I think I'm going to post up some less-sketchy and more-refined things eventually. Maybe the week after next, since it'll be my Spring Break. -shrug-
