    FourTonMantis' (USED to be BigZam's) Sketchbook Of Despair UPDATED WITH NEW JUNK!

    Eh!

    My name's Derek and I'm 16 years old. I've been prowling around here for some time and figured it's about time to start a sketchbook. I would love crits if you could spare some.

    I'll start off with some anatomy studies.

    This one was done in Conte crayon in my normal sketchbook.

    The rest of these are done on newsprint with various mediums.

    And finally, some fun stuff.

    This one's another oil pastel. I really like the vivid colors you can get from oil pastels.

    Another Conte crayon piece.

    Finally, an armored warrior, done in Prismacolor markers.

    That's all I have for now, but I'll try and update as often as I can; I try to sketch out a few figures every night before I go to bed.

    Thanks for looking!

    Here's a gouache painting I started last night. Sorry for the poor quality. My mom wants to frame it when I'm done...

    Hey! Thanks for commenting on my sketchbook, very insightful!
    I like your figures, they have a loose ethreal quality to them that could definately be worked upon!
    However, when drawing fingers, maybe you should consider the components that go into the finger and how they correspond. Just a thought. Thanks!

    Hey there! Lovin those anatomy studies, its great that you're churning them at a quick rate. I was struck by the watercolour painting of the tree though, the subtle colour changes and tones you've got going on in the tree trunk are awesome. Keep on going!

    Great start! Anatomy studies are something that every artist works on no matter what their skill level. It's good to see you using lots of reference for those. Get some more photo reference work in your figure studies. Hogarth is great for communicating concepts about figure construction, but his figures are very exaggerated. Try getting some good photos and applying the concepts he teaches to them. Looking for stuff like the "B" formation in the legs, or overlapping lines in photos of real will help you improve even faster! Drawing figures from direct reference is, of course, the best, however a lot of us young people don't have access to models unless we are actually in a class or something like it.

    Keep experementing with your art, and make it fun and keep up the good work!

    Post tons and you will improve greatly.

    GREAT Hogarth studies....1 point I'd like to mention is that don't just blindly copy his work but do read what's in the text.....it will later help you draw from imagination.....I've been given this same advice a lot of times....
    Its great that you're playing with different media.....
    keep it up
