    RunawayGerbil's Sketchbook

    Finally got around to starting a sketchbook.=]. i don't have a scanner right now so i am putting photos of my sketches and studies up.

    i am currently learning watercolor and studying anatomy for now.

    the apple is my very first try at a finished work with watercolors. before that i was did a couple of value charts and color wheels to learn how to mix and stuff.

    the studies were copied from Bridgman's constructive anatomy and Wizard's how to draw volume 1.

    Welcome to CA. Bridgeman studies turned out pretty nice, keep drawing from life and doing those anatomy studies.

    good start with the anatomy work, the bridgeman studies are coming along nicely. what program are you using to go with the tablet? if it's photoshop cs2 you can set the brush width to pen pressure which gives a nice pencil kinda look, great for sketching figure structures and basic shapes. hope to see more posts soon as you're doin great so far!

    nice value work on that pear!

    keep working on the studies from life as they are the most important and easiest thing you can do starting out. all of that life drawing will give you the basis for drawing from your imagination. sooo.. keep going
