    BlueMech's Sketch Tome :: Book II, page110507

    I'm starting a new sketchbook because my old one was way image heavy (200+) and had way old art, years old. Most peopel rumaged through the older stuff and neglected to comment and crit on my more recent stuff. With the advent of me joining an SSG I've decided it best to start anew. My old sketchbook thread can be found here. Also, ElvisMcVegas and I have a comic that is still early in it's life. It's not much but it's there.

    Kind of old, but it was fun ro draw.

    I drew the initial sketch a looong while back when I was spending the week at SOE before they came to get us for the day.

    Drawn from ref, scan quality makes it worse than it really is. I'm getting back into the groove of drawing, even moreso of drawing on real paper.

    Also from ref. I'm still pretty rusty and I need to fix this scanner, all these scans are crappy. It's an old scanner and it doesn't like my new computer much I guess.

    Nice reference poses. Use your arm a little more and your wrist a little less, so the lines are longer. Looks like you sketch with short little strokes. Try laying down more confident strokes and then darkening only the accurate ones. (Of course, I should talk, though; everybody's on me about my own line work!)

    Yeah I was really noticing that today. I kept trying to do bigger strokes but these were prett ybad lines. My hand was being real shaky. I'm looking forward to my new moniter and I guess the set up I'll have in my dorm, I'll be facign the monitor more head on. Now it;'s crooked so it's hard for me to find a nice groove.

    yay.. i think il'l be making a new sb someday soon... but until then - you have good lines - just practice is the key.... like practice whenever you're waiting for loading times on games and stuff like that. it always helps me... i drew TONS of stuff while playing QUAKE 4... because the loading times were like 2-3 minutes a pieces and i could chug out an image in between them. hehe

    keep up the good work and i'm excited to see more stuff from you! be inventive and use the stuff you learn into stuff you'd like to see. that's what i try to do... haha try. keep it up and never give up!

    It's been a while and I don't feel like scanning in my physical SB pages.

    Here's some figga studies we did today. I say we because Elvis and I both were doing them at the same time. I don't know if he's going ot post his.

    Time to stop avoiding those faces, now that you're getting bodies down. Girl's fashion mags have great photos to practice from. Pick one up at the grocery market and punch anybody who calls you a f a g

    Man, I wish I had all the cables to my SB. I've done a good smattering of life sketches and I wanna post 'em. Oh well.

    Elvis and I did an SP contest to use only two colours. I win but either way the experiemnt didn't work out. Two bad colours together = bad colours together. Who knew?

    the reason why those to colors dont work well together in you portrait is because they are of the same value. value reads better than colors. with only color left to make out the form you will get confused.... but you get an interesting effect.

    but maybe you already knew that
