    Sirithduriel's sketchbook

    For a start, I'll post some stuff I've done the last few months. I have quite a bit more in my sketchbook, but being scannerless, those will have to wait for a while..
    First ones are newest, it gets older to the bottom

    So far I feel I have a problem with sensing form, how something feels in 3D.. And I think that's pretty much what's been holding back any other progress (like practising anatomy for example)

    Sorry about the watermarks on some.. I try to keep that to a minimum lately, but these are still from the beginning of the year to approx. a month ago.

    Drawn her very long ago. Still sorta happy with it, so that's why I show it.

    Love your color keys, they remind me of the ones I just posted in my SB. You have a pretty nice view from the window there. Can you show us some anatomy studies?

    greetings!

    Okay, your random girl is awesome. The quality of the linework really gives her character and makes her interesting. I think your sunset drawings, however, are much too simple. Granted, I can't see what you see outside your window, so I wouldn't be able to tell you how it should look.

    I think those bananas are a good example of understanding 3D shapes. The detailing is very subtle, which fleshes it out more. If you use pen, normally what I do is I crosshatch by following the shape I'm shading. So, if I'm shading a balll, my crosshatching lines are more round. And it seems like you're doing a bit of that, so just keep at it and work on giving it the same subtlety as your pencil drawings. Keep posting!

    Thanks for the comments people, I really appreciate it


    Isair > Thanks! I'm wondering, why do you think my colour selection is interesting?

    Gringo > Aye, I'm living on the 15th floor of an 18 floors flat and I'm looking out over a part of another destrict of the town I live in, but mostly I see acres, and groups of trees, little forests. It's not bad living here, I tell you.
    When I've scanned stuff from my sketchbook, I'll show you the anatomy stuff in there.

    Stylus > Thanks for the crits! I agree on the simplicity of the sunset drawings, that was one thing that bothers me about those. I'll perhaps do a few more, and put more detail in there.
    I'll certainly keep at it! Inspiration comes flowing again

    well, i mean the sunset sets. although not very accurate colors (i don't think accuracy is that necessary), when putting together you created a scene of surreal feeling which i found very interesting.

    Today I am visiting my parents, so I was able to scan some stuff from my sketchbook. I scanned quite a bit, so I'm not going to post everything at once. To start with some anatomy studies done in July. Some Mentler things, some Loomis (fun with a pencil ), some other guy.

    Anyway, I don't like em, I need to do a lot more studies really.

    darkchild > Thanks!

    (c) > Aye, hard work indeed. And I'll work on my lines, thanks for your comment.

    So after that (still July) I decided to do some perspective studies . I have this Dutch book that explains how you can construct stuff, so now and then I contruct some simple stuff (I have yet to construct real 3D forms like cubes etc using the method described there, but I can easily guess how those will work).
    After that, I did some light-shadow things. I am SO happy with those three balls in the 7th one. (These are done at the beginning of this month)

    I fear btw that at this rate of posting I'll be through my scanned stuff within a few days, so sorry if I fall quiet after that ;P

    The casts are good. You rendered the sphere very well. Pay attention to the bottom of the bowl, it should be consistant with the top. Inks are nice Keep up with it.

    Hey Sirithduriel!

    You have a great start! You're doing everything you need to do on the road to becoming a great artist!

    So, all I have to say is to keep it up and draw! Draw! Draw!
    Draw everyday! Especially work on hands, faces, and feet. They are keys to making convincing and great figures (along with all of the anatomy) and once you have those you'll be solid. You have the linework! The color is good!

    Keep up the artwork!

    Isair > Thanks for the comment!

    Beonarri > Thanks man, you really sort of encouraged me with that comment. I'm really inclined to think that what I do looks more like crap than that it benefits or actually looks nice (that 'crap' in one of the renderings isn't there for nothing). So thanks for getting my focus right again

    darkchild > Thanks!


    Well here goes the last batch of sketchbook pages (which means, I might go silent for quite a while, though I hope not..). Also tomorrow university starts again though, and I'll have days from 8.30 to 17.00 (oh joy).

    I've recently bought Constructive Anatomy by Bridgman and Atlas of Human Anatomy by Peck, and I've drooling over them and doing a few studies.

    Also I've been drawing from life a little, with a brushtip pen (which is nice, but needs some getting used to) and a simple micron (which is a little nicer, because it's easier to use). I had so much fun doing this, I felt amazed.

    No problem. One of the things that I never, ever do is get down on myself. You may not notice it, but that gets registered in your subconscious and it does add up.

    Unless you use the word 'crap', like I do. Just as a general term for a whole lotta stuff.

    Like "I have so much crap in my room!" or "You got a lotta crap in that bag."

    Also, school starts for my brother and alot of my friends on Tuesday. Good luck. Being graduated is so nice, lots of free time to sit around and do nothin'.

    That guy in the newest sketch kinda looks like me. Only, he's a bit heavier and doesn't have a mustache.

    Very nice studies! Keep it up!

    Brushes pens are my nemisis.

    nice! You are jumping all over the place with your studies, doing everything from anatomy, value and perspective, Its nice to see but try focusing on one thing for a while, as long as a week even, for example, spending a week studying perspective will get your brain to think about it and dive deeper, otherwise you are just jabbing the surface...
    keep it up anyway

    Beonarri > Yeah well, I use 'crap' for mucho stuffs aswell, and when drawing mostly when it simply doesn't look good. But perhaps I should take a few steps back, and not dismiss anything that 'deserves' the 'crap'-label just for the way it looks. Thansk for the comment on that!
    And oh yeah, forgot to mention that guy is my husband (A)


    archipelago > Thanks for the comment! I'll try keeping an eye on what I'm doing

    Bought it at Bol.com. Couldn't find it anywhere here, but bol.com has about all of his books and they're VERY well priced! (Constructive Anatomy was about 9 euros, but there are even cheaper ones)
    Look here.

    Beonarri > whoa, so there are two other guys looking like my husband out there

    You should see an American comicbook convention.
    Guys like me, your hubby, and my friends fiancee, are a dime a dozen.
    In the really world though, its hard to find Viking/nerd/art guys.

    oma > You're welcome

    Spats > Thanks for dropping by!

    Beonarri > Hmm, that would be scary . Here there aren't many guys looking like this though. Or I usually don't notice 'em..


    Yesterday I scanned some stuff at university, and all of a sudden the (VERY OLD) scanner was able to pick up pencil lines. Unfortunately the files would be 20 Mb, but it was cool that I would not be dependent on going to my parents to scan some stuff. Yay!

    Anyway, some week-old Peck studies, random flowers and some figures from the head (because I needed the creative-ness flowing again). And uploading a drawing i also uploaded previously, but now a slightly bigger version (the smaller one was for DeviantArt ). Used ref from a dA stock artist for that one.

    I also went to art school, scruffy people just sort of coagulate around where I hang out.

    The flowers are cool! On the the figure, I would flesh out her hands a bit more, and work on her feet a little bit. Maybe work on the boots a little more, they seem spongy. I would draw the foot, then put the shoe over it.

    Peck owns! That's the best all around anatomy book!
