    Wake's book, Switching to a new book

    The newer stuff is in the back.

    Day 1,
    Hello, my name is Taylor. I am 16 (when this started), and have recently decided to focus more on my drawing, and painting skills. So I started this sketchbook to hopefully help me improve my skills. My goal for the sketchbook is to do a little sketching, and a little painting every day; and hopefully recieve helpful advice along the way. well...here goes

    First drawings for my sketchbook.

    sketch:

    painting:

    Notes: Need to work on basic shapes more, painting needs refining. Also more study into hands is needed.

    let me know what you think.

    Practicing still life

    well, I still need more practice with basic shapes I've decided so today's theme was also still life. Just found some stuff laying around my room, and gathered them up. I still need alot more pactice in blending colors in photoshop with hard edge brushes; but today was good practice.

    Keep drawing from life Taylor, nice apple you got there, I think the bottom shadows should be some darker so the apple is less floating around.
    Not much more to say, just keep going

    more still life

    Well, today I think I got alot better at blending colors in photoshop. I watched a really helpful tutorial about it, and I think it really help me to understand what I was doing wrong before. Today's theme is also still life taken from things I found around the house. I decided not to try and shade the sketches too much sense I get plenty of shading practice from my paintings. The sketches are meant primarily to tune up my sense of shape. Aslo, I didn't finish the painting today because it got a little too detailed so I'll try to finish it tommorow. I know, I know I said one painting everyday but I figure as long as I get significant work done on a painting each day it'll be fine. Here's the pics.

    Today I gathered up some vases for the sketch. The shading is a little rough because I started to get impatient. For the painting I found a piggy bank we had in our kitchen. I'm not done with the painting but hopefully it will be finished by tommorow. here's the pics, comment away!

    It was skull practice for me today. I did a couple with reference, and a few without (you'll be able to tell which used ref). I still gotta couple of really wonkey lines and evenness to fix. Tommorow I want to try full skeletons.

    I am posting for August 10th (its 12:30 am my time). I didn't get to drawing until about 11:30 today. It has been a week sense I started this sketchbook, and I'm proud to say i think I improved a little. so far I have been able to maintain the sketching goal just not the painting goal. I sort of figured that the painting would be difficult. Anyway today I decided to do a more in depth study of the human skull before I move on. I still have alot to learn so eventually I will practice it more. Ill decide what I want to study tommorow.
