    AFgal's sketchbook!!! [Back to Basics]

    This is the second sketchbook I'm starting here. This is my more serious sketchbook. I'm going to take more time on each sketch and really focus on what I'm doing. My influences are archeology, anthropology, natural history, ancient history, nature, animals, aviation and the military. I really like Bridgman and I'm currently studying him. Basically I am self-teaching myself so any help is greatly appreciated.

    These hand studies were really hard and all of them are off in one way or another. I need to do these again and again until I get them right.

    frog and *BAM*: I love that frog too!!

    stine: Thanks for the comments. I like Bridgman's style so that makes a huge difference though the hands are really hard.

    17 March 2006 - Thought I'd try to do something a little different today.

    What's up? Those eyes, are rendered quite nicely, and those bridgeman hand studies are looking good. My only suggestion is to make sure to keep drawing a lot from life as well.

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I definitly need to draw more from real life. Which I am now making it a point to do that. I've notice that I can draw already drawn stuff fairly well or at least I've improved in that a lot but real life, while much better from a couple months ago still has a long long way to go.

    18 March 2006 - Not my characters. Was trying to replicate from a cartooning book.

    Thanks! Nope the frog is charcoal.

    Did some more life drawing but my subject was easily distracted so I couldn't spend as much time on it as I wanted. I have a long ways to go on this stuff. I also did a contour one where I only looked at the cat. I can tell a huge difference between that one and the attempts where I looked at the cat and the paper. Need to turn off the draw what you think you know part of the brain!

    I've been under the weather today so in between naps I've played with oil pastel and blind contour. I also hope to get some Bridgman and a something else done today.

    Decided to render a butterfly. Referencing a photo. This is just the beginning. The proportions are off a little.
