    --[[taves' sketchbook ((update: Oct, 5th)) ]]--

    Hey guys. I've been doing WAY too much reading and writting lately (that's not a BAD thing, I know. haha.) but in an effort to kickstart my desire to draw just as much as I want to write or read, I decided that making a sketchbook (all these threads are crazy inspirational by the way. awesome stuff guys) might help. Ah, and please forgive my affinity for the 2H pencil. Makes for light scans. So, without further adue:

    Just a few more quick things. I've been so busy with studies, I haven't really had time for anything fun, but I got all that in the works. A few examples are at the bottom:

    Found some old character designs that I think I'm going to eventually rework:

    Digitals on the evening (I'd also like to thank everyone else here who's been posting stuff like mad. Each time I touch a computer, I log on for maybe 5 second before I just need to find a pencil and pad and just draw.)

    Hey, taves!

    Your artwork remind sme of a friend of mine. If I remember right, her old sketchbook drawings a like your's right now.
    Check out her website:
    http://www.jadedsketch.com

    You're definitely going down the right path. I think you just need to practice getting the figures that you are drawing out of your head correct. Well, more correct.

    Remember what you learned from drawing from life, and work that into your characters. Also, if you have taken an anatomy class (if you haven't I suggest you take one), to work that into your characters as well. Usually that's the next step after encorperating general figure work.

    Keep it up!

    PS
    If you email her, either don't mention me at all or tell her I pointed to your website. Don't mention me as some weirdo in the ConceptArt.org forums.

    Very good studies m8! The small thumbnails is what's looking best IMO. Keep 'em up! I'm looking forward to seeing your progress.

    No pain, no gain.

    Nice figure thumbnails. I'm going through a figure drawing class with Mike Mattesi. If you're interested in some awesome gesture type drawing you should check out drawingforce.com. It's a slightly different take on traditional figure drawing technique, but it lends itself to dynamic motion and animation.
    Keep posting!

    Cheers

    Beonarri: Thanks for the kind words. I checked out that sight you mentioned, and there is some very nice stuff in there. I'm glad you brought it up. I agree, that I need to work on getting figures from my head to the page - atleast, in a more crips fashion. Actually, thanks to your post, I've thrown myself into an anatomy frenzy.

    kaktuzlime: Thanks. I gotta say- I'm partial to gestures from day 1. I'm an organic artist at heart, through fighting it profusely.

    Thaelys: Checked that sight, and I was really gooving on his technique. If I had some cash, I'd drop it for a video or 2. Maybe I'll check the library's database this weekend...

    Well then, on to the updates. As I said before, I've thrown myself into a mini frenzy of anatomical studies. I'm starting with a deeper concentration on the upper body, working from front to back, then working down to the lower half, with legs, lower back, bottcks, feet, etc. I have also, for some strange reason, been whipped into a frenzy of drawing ninja turtles (I liked those 4 green mutants more then any little should have - ever. OH, and for some musical goodness, check this out.) Right then - on to the update:

    rmore: Thanks. I've been working real hard on the studies. Still got a ways to go though.

    Just a quick update on some Maya studies I've been playing with. The last one is going to be a combination Forest Gump scene and Bosch painting:

    The anatomy studies look great. My favorites are the larger two at the top of this page: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1160537312

    I also really like the darkest hand here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1159970939 All of them look really good though.

    Not really much I can crit. The only thing I notice (which I really really struggle with too) is that you seem to be stroking the same line multiple times - mostly in your life drawing stuff, but in some of the others as well. It makes your outlines fuzzy and the lines look less confident. You got it down way better than I do though. Thanks for stopping by my sb!

    Finally, a nice little moment to stop and catch my breath.

    Beonarri: It's been relatively nice to see that my own studies are progressing my work. Plus, I've been taking a lot of my free time to just imerse myself into others artwork, for studies and creative purposes.

    morningbloom915: Every time I pick up a pencil now, I think of you. heh. Weird sounding, but what I mean is that I try to limit my strokes more then I normally use. It's like holding my breath, but very slowly, the more confident lines are coming. Thanks for crit.

    tekdj: Thanks a ton. I'm glad you like. I'll keep em coming. No worries.

    I'm up to my ears in stuff that needs doing, but it's all slowly getting sorted and seperated. There's even some stuff to show for my efforts:
