    SCad Grad Progress Thread

    Hello, everyone. I have been lurking here for a while now, and I finally decided to post some of my work. I just graduated from SCAD (3D major) and I feel like I've neglected my 2d skills way too much. I've been drawing every day for a few weeks now, off and on before that. Mostly I'm trying to learn anatomy, and to try to draw more volumetrically. Most of the time I end up drawing front and profile faces, very flat looking. Here are some of the better sketches I've done lately. I will post more as I draw it in hopes of finding some guidance here.

    I think I do pretty well when drawing from life or with other reference, but when I try to draw from imagination I get very frustrated.

    Oh, and it almost goes without saying, but I was inspired to do this my the amazing feats of MindcandyMan and Android, proving that there really IS time enough in every day to draw.

    thanks for the encouragement endregan.

    here is a SP I just did from a picture. I sketched it out first and then painted by grabbing colors from the photo in PS. Is that cheating?

    Well here is what I drew today. Man, I have to start using pen more because the ones in pencil don't show up well in the digital pictures. maybe I just need better lighting. Anyway, I wanted to start concentrating on actually putting clothing on my figures... and details and accessories. I always just draw nudes and musclemen. Anyway:

    Here's another self portrait I did. I tried to emulate Androids rushed-looking, odd colored style on some of his SPODs. I think maybe I should have sketched it first, but this time I tried just painting from the beginning and picking all my own colors.

    Your stuff is looking good, keep it up.
    And for the SP, it generally isnt reccomended to "grab colors"..next time try it from life!

    hey, thanks a lot for commenting amphex. Ya, I figured as much... that portrait came out too good, too easily. And I don't think I learned much from it. Today I did one with no reference, and only one color (basically greyscale but more fun).

    here's the DSG I did today. It's the first one I've done because I'm usually afraid mine will suck. So I was right. Maybe more thought in the design would help. I tried to make it look like you're lookin up at him from below and the light is coming from above.

    9. fell apart here. my proportions are off. she turned out looking old but she was young and very skinny. I think the legs are too long and the tummy to wide.



    I would love to hear suggestions on what to concentrate on next time. Thanks for looking and reading.

    welcome to the club!

    As for your life drawings - check out my sketchbook (in the Daily Sketchbbok section) and see how even a short amount of lessons can lead to progress: just carry on!

    Thanks for the encouragement, Jester! You have really improved since the beginning of your thread.

    Here is my DSG for today: "Arrival". wow look at me I did an environment. I think the sense of space works OK, but I don't like the colors that much...too saturated maybe. It took about 40 minutes.
