    mentalSherpa_sketchBook

    Hello all. I'm gonna do my best to update this everyday or so, if even just a small quick sketch here or there. I really lost the time to draw much during the last year of school, but now that it's done, I intend on picking it back up. Hope you enjoy the images and any c&c is greatly appreciated.

    thank ya

    Good start to your sketchbook. Have to say that the monotone armour sketches are my favourite.

    The last one is sweet, as is the ones that looks like they've been painted to masonite. This one is really sweet too!

    Thanks for the praise guys. I really dig the monotone ones too. It's really fun to do, but I'm trying to add more and more color to things. Slowly but surely. I'm gonna try and hit up the Met for a drawing trip tommorow, so if things go as planned, I'll have a nice update after I get back.

    thanks again!

    I really like the armors. Great skill in designing them, as every part fits nicely with the other. I love your work, more please..

    Very nice stuff! Like everyone else, I love the armors. The life study of the woman is really nice as well. Welcome to the 44th! I look forward to working with you.

    ketchook!

    hey bvuddy ... how are you?

    nice start for the sketchbook ... I personally like the armors

    now some crits =D
    I would like to see some of those "floating armors" in action ... sometimes is not "that hard" (for me it is, even easy poses I wouldn't draw as good as you =D) to do when they are facing us in such a normal pose ... try to do one with some action going on, like the dude sitting on #2 (is his head too small? dunno)... I bet you will come out with something good

    Hands: your hands I think are the weak point. They are usually just closed or just open, without a good expression to them

    post #9 is nice, but I think you are way better with the pencil then wacom =D hehe

    post #11 is a little strange ... it seens there is so much stuff going on, but at the same time nothing really showing hehe ... I believe you could work some more on that ... That dude with the glass seens to got potential

    the "ladies" on #13 are really good ... although the drapery doesn't "feel" really well ... like they don't seen a real cloth ... I have a bad time with drapery as well =(

    but all in all I think you got a lot of talent and you are on the right track... it is just mileage that you need =)

    well, hope that helps and if I had been too harsh just let me know =D ... I prefer when people just say what they really think in my SB so I can improve much more ,)

    best regards

    hey, you said the value of the eyes was bothering you- but I'm thinkin its really the temperature. they don't need to be the same warmth of the skin, but they are almost blue in comparison, warm them up, show us that there's some blood in there. Even just working the skintone in as reflected light would work to put those eyes back in place.

    thanks for comments guys!

    Bruno: (mind if i call you bruno??) Your absolutely right! I had the same kind of experience with dropping my drawing(and almost everything 2D) when i was school. I got crazy caught up in 3D. And after i was done I realized I'd had the same sketchbook for 3 years, and I saw all the gaps in what I knew. I also realized that I had pussed out on almost every attempt to learn to paint (or at least use color) in the past. Both of these things are severely limiting my 3d work, so these posts are my baby steps back into 2D.

    The armours actually are that static for a reason. They were never meant to be finished, but the point was to design the pieces for modeling and work out the interlocking and connectivity of the pieces. And, you are right, it is always easier to draw those kinda of things in simple poses.

    you're right the drapery on the woman is weak.

    I'm workin' on the human parts as we speak

    Mclean: Thanks man, I'll try that.

    Hiya!! Very nice studies you have going!! I can't really critique tonight, running out of steam.

    Though, one thing I recall about tilted male heads was that the adam's apple will kind of "hide" more as the head tilts forward.

    great work. i really like your line work and use of values particularly in your sketches. it would be awsome to see some of your more abstract pieces like in the first post.

    Heya, great studies you got there. The heads are looking cool, don't overdo the neck muscles tho. Also, almost all of these heads are men, try to get in some ladies as well !

    Your head studies look good. That's a tough angle, I have trouble with it as well. Neck anatomy is a big hole in my knowledge, too. The only crit I have is that it looks like you're kinda overcompensating, and making the necks too short.

    Do you do much underdrawing?

    ketchook!
