    Newbies sketchbook

    Hey everyone. I've been a lurker here for a little while now and I thought id jump in. The sketchbook support groups sounded like fun, so hopefully I'll learn alot while here and maybe meet some cool people.

    Nice start, I like the back muscles on the last pages figure. The shoe is also good, but there is something wrong with it. Post more.

    Hey dude, looks like we're in the same SSG together.

    Like your figure drawings, I need to improve on those. Do you use references when you draw the figures, or just play around until the proportions look right?

    nice still life, love that shoe, very clean and technical. the plane (spitfire?) could use a little more gradation in the tones, looks rather flat now.

    the figures have interesting poses, you look like you're able to spot your own anatomy mistakes so i'll skip those. if you don't have confidence working on facial features and hands, might want to work them on a seperate piece of paper?

    Welcome to the sketchbook forum
    Yarr, the loomis books. That's a great starting point.
    Just remember to sketch outside of Loomis aswell.
    Even though you'll learn alot from the loomis books it's important to sketch without them and creating your own style.

    Good job so far, just remember to keep sketching and posting.

    Eksay: All of the reference in this sketchbook so far is from those loomis books you've been hearing so much about. Except for the sleepy pose below

    Hypronost: Thanks for the advice, i'll be sure to mix it up.

    an.heng: Thanks for the crits, I think i'll start working faces now.

    Arg, pretty awful faces I know but here they are anyway : ) And ignore the disproportionate eye

    it's a good start.

    try working on the shape of the entire head and basic placement of features, and draw big. when i started out i used to draw small too to hide all the little details. drawing big will force you to admit your mistakes.

    thanks for the advice, I think my main problem is feature placement on the axis’s. I’ll dumb it down to the basics next time and make sure I get that down.

    I wanted to do more then this, but Id like to get some 3d max in tonight also.

    More tomorrow

    The shoe, wrench, and plane are really awesome. They're super-smooth and have a strong sense of depth. Have any more like 'em?

    Loomis stuff looks like it's coming along nicely... I'm starting Loomis now too!
