Kyethn: Glad you like my current work.
One of a series of the cloth studies i'm going to do. I'm collecting various cloth advertisements as reference. Here's some boots.
Great idea with the cloth studies, Good luck with that , looks good sofar.
I like your progress. Many artists are afraid to draw different things, I think your on the right track. I like your anatomy studies, that is the best way to learn the human form next to lifedrawing, keep it up
Lawnboy: Thanks, I agree about drawing many different things. It's not always the most fun to draw, but I think a good illustrator should be able to draw everything. At least decent and believable.
Arm study and some thumbnail sketches for a illustration I want to work serious on.
Incredible studies! Everything looks so well rendered.
I think you have a great grasp of rendering! Your cloth studies are going exceptionally well. As well as your anatomy studies.
About the only critique I can offer, and this is completely from my opinion and personal, but I could get into anime, just never really liked drawing it personally. But like I said, it's your personal style and there is nothing wrong with that at all. <hides!>
Anyway, all-in-all great sketchbook and I can't wait to see more!
Malakai: Thanks, though I don't get your critique about anime.
Gavobe: Thank you for the reply, I should use my acrylics some time as well...
Some environment studies, I used an animation book from Preston Blaire as reference. Those environments are always bothering to do and get right, but I think I get the hang of it some more now I did this one. Colours done with colour ink and are not accurate, just fooled around with it for fun. Scanning A3 can be bothersome...
And a life drawing from a couple of days ago. Did'nt know to post it here or not. Oh well.
That drawing of the corner in your house is REALLY GOOD.
It's very important too, because on of the largest things I'm seeing is a lack of understanding of perspective, and nothing can defeat that better than doing enviro studies with objects that are mostly geometric. It's also great practice to draw the ground planes and objects when figure drawing, because you will decvelop a sense of how to place the figure correctly in perspective.
Keep doing anatomy studies, they are helping immensely, but you still have a long way to go! You are showing good dedication as well, even just doing a few hands studies a day is good work.
About the illo; get some reference. Even in the thumbnail stage, I am seeing alot of anatomy errors and perspective issues. Get friends to pose or something, using reference, even if it isn't going to be in a realistic "style", will help the process go ALOT smoother. That town drawing is alright, but it still is suffering from alot of perspective errors. If you are doing 2 point perspective, make sure you are always aware of where both VP's are at all times. Even very minute errors can make entire other parts of a picture look off.
Keep at it, you are doing a good job!
