    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.

    Illustration Friday's topic was 'fat'. Inks: Painter, colors: ArtRage. Unhappy with it...

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

    love the expressions on these portraits. And your color selection is very interesting. Keep up the good works.

    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
