Welcome to my sketchbook.
My most sincere thanks to the CA community for your support and guidance during my time here.
I wouldn't be where I am without you guys.
Sorry for bad quality pics, as some were done on A3 and taken with a digi-cam.
This is improved version of the demon in entry 1.
Photo reference study.
Some gestures from my 3rd life drawing class (yay).
... And here's the 15 minute sketch from the same session.
Otter study from my photo taken at the zoo. Part of an animal character design assignment. 40 minutes approx.
EDIT: Transfered an image to attachment so i can get a little display pic for the thread. ^.^

Definitely more like the babe in the hat. If it takes five hours to crank out something like that, then damnit, do it! You've got a lot of promise - invest some time into the rest of your stuff and you'll have a really fantastic sketchbook. Watch the whites of those eyes - people don't really, you know. Have whites, unless you happen to be shining floodlights into their face. Shade those suckers in so they sink back a bit.
Thanks Myxomatosis. I've been meaning to do more pieces like that but... i'm just so lazy . Holiday break is coming up soon, though, i'll definitely do another then.
Really digging the photo study. Your figures have promise, i would just reccomend working on line confidence, and not so many scratchy lines. Learn to just strike the line you want in one stroke. A good excersize for developing line control is to make a dot on a page and draw a line to the dot, in one stroke. Make the motion over the page a few times and then bam, strike it. Best of luck, and keep it up!
Great tip, HellTaxi. Thanks.
I did realize i need to practice line control, but not quite sure how to go about it. I'll be trying your trick.
Post some new stuff!
Don't let your sketchbook die
hey there! nice drawings! the female study at the top is really nice. the form feels very dementional. the gestures are nice too! keep em coming. the secret to drawing people is to draw them....all the time. keep a little sketchbook with you at all times, draw people as much as you can. there is nothing better then seeing them with your own eyes and getting what you see onto paper. dont get into the habit of using photos too much untill you can do it with your own eyes first. even gosu artist use photos but they all learned to paint/draw from life. keep pushing. ill stop in when you have more.
I've decided to put some effort into my work, instead of insulting your eyes with crap.
My first year at animation school is almost over. Drawn alot of cartoons, done some life drawing. Had a great time and learned heaps.
I've decided i need to step it up another notch to improve my skills. This time, i'm really serious about anatomy. I've been learning about human anatomy from books and videos, e.g. Andrew Loomis and Riven Pheonix's "Drawing the human figure from the mind" series. The video series i found especially helpful, just like having a teacher. These have also been keeping me motivated to draw everyday, because i can just sit down and draw along with it.
So without further adue, here're some stuff i've done for the past half year.
You'll notice the lastest couple of entries are in pen. This was when i discovered i had attained enough line control that i could use a pen without making a mess. I was quite happy with this, and now enjoy drawing with a pen. This is also the start my journey of learning to drawing the human figure without reference.
C&C would be much appreciated. Thanks for all the encouragement, and thanks for viewing!
hey bro, im glad you updated! this is all looking very nice. improvements for sure. the eye studies are great as well as the proportional studies below. I recognize the guy from silent hill. very nice use of mark making there. very good update, you are on a roll. keep posting bro.
draw till your fingers hurt
I have some concerns about the skull construction.
On the last page, you can see i've constructed a skull using the method i learned from the Riven Pheonix videos. I compared it to a real skull and the differences are suggnificant.
Is the Pheonix's method incorrect? Did i construct it badly? Is this real skull just retarded?
try using less lines, it helps, line confidence and all that. It looks like you are correcting your proportions as you do more work, which is good. Keep it up, the whole learning and growing thing.
And since you are taking a life drawing class I will be expecting more out of you
I suggest that for at least a little while, you just work with line, and no value. See how far you can push it. This might also push you to improve you line quality. This will also allow you to focus on proprtions etc.
Strange coincidence that every man whose skull has been opened had a brain.
