    My Sketchbook

    PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE LAST PAGE FOR MORE RECENT ART

    Hi!
    My name is Henning Sanden. I'm 16 years old and live in Bergen, Norway.

    Last summer a new passion occurred to me, drawing. I had seen all this amazing art on cg-talk and deviantart by artists like Henning Ludvigsen, Linda Bergkvist, Nebezial, Neville Page, Scott Robertson and so on. As everybody else I desperately wanted to make masterpieces from the instance I touched my tablet for the first time. When I got my beloved Wacom in September 2006 every new piece was going to be the new Mona Lisa or as good as the old masters paintings done by Michelangelo, da Vinci, Rubens, Rafael and so on. This resulted in a total disaster. Now, I knew how much work there was behind those masterpieces.

    In this thread I'll show some of my progress so far and hopefully acquire some new skills in drawing and painting.

    I would really appreciate any critique and comment you might have. I don’t really think I’ll receive many comments though, but that won’t stop me from drawing

    - Henning

    in this post I'll post some old stuff from late 2006. As you can see this is sh*t. I don't like a single of these drawings :p I post them to see if I'll make progress

    Most of the propotions are wrong and they are way to sketchy.






    I'll post another version of Gollum in a later post.

    Welcome to CA. I think your biggest problem is proportion at the moment, but dont worry about that yet, I suggest to draw from life, draw from magazines, tv. Draw a page of your hands each day, along with lots of figure studies, check out mentler's sketchbook on this site, he has some of the best figure studies to work from. Heres a link to some of Kevin Chen's worx. He was a teacher in California for the stuff, and is also great to learn from.
    http://www.characterdesigns.com/inde...page=tutorials.

    Heres the Loomis Anatomy books which are free online and are the best resource when studying anatomy.http://fineart.sk/index.php?cat=1

    Heres a link to a bunch of articles by Glenn Vilppu, an animator genious.
    http://mag.awn.com/index.php?ltype=C...&column=vilppu

    Keep up your studies, your doing good for how long youve been drawing. And hope these links will help out.

    Thank you very much for you comment. I was just skanning some new drawings. Every one of the drawings I've posted are several months old. I've learned so much in those months. Thanks for the links

    Ive read some Loomis. Brilliant reading I'm currently reading "Drawing on the right side of the brain". That's one of the best books I've ever read about drawing!

    more drawings...



    As I said, another version of Gollum. These to drawing were drawn with 4-5 month in between.





















    Yesterday, I drew my first drawing where I used negative space. You can se the result above in the hand. It's actually way easier to draw when focusing on negative space

    Thank you I'm trying to draw 1 hour a day. Thats 7+ hours a week. If I draw even more than an hour I can easily reach 50 hours a month in just drawing. If I draw that much it will help me greatly I hope

    I see you are more a potrait person.Its quite impressive work for your age.I used to sketch some potraits when i was your age.Thats how i got my facial anatomy art right hahaha....its a good sketch training actually.
    I think if you wanna get more depth for your potrait,you can add some bold line on some parts of the facial such as eyes,nose etc....observe and draw is the key,mate!Wish to see more from you....

    Thank you Nanzotaro I'm not really a portrait person. I rather prefer big nasty monsters, but I find portraits to good training. I want to develop some basic drawing skill before going to the heavy stuff, like badass monsters and "real" concept art. I can assure you that you'll see more from me in the future

    Another doodle. This time its Pink Floyds Roger Waters turn to be transformed into a late evening doodle. I'll work more on this tomorrow. I found that taking a photo of the drawing give a much neater result that scanning it in my scanner. I noticed today that my drawingpencil was two inches shorter now, than it was a week ago. I have really drawn a lot lately

    Faces are getting better, but I like the hand studies the best. Need to focus more on proportion and line than on rendering tho. Doing good.

    You're quite right. My biggest concern now are proportions. If I only made simple doodles, I wouldn't get artistic joy. I have to finish some of my work from time to time. I'll upload a rendered version of Mr. Waters shortly.
    I really appreciate you taking time to comment my work. It means a lot to me

    EDIT:

    Practise, Practise, Practise...

    The kind of advice I wish i'd drummed into my head when I was younger... you got the drive, just keep drawin mate and you'll notice yourself improving in no time! Don't just give yourself an hour try and draw as much as possible!

    I would say get yourself into some life drawing classes and that way you can study the human form and develop the key skills, proportions, neg space, opposing curves etc - somethin else I wish I'd done when I was younger

    p.s thanks for your comments btw - I put some new stuff up, have a look sometime.

    Throw down some basic shapes and/or guidelines before you go straight to the detail. The proportions are off and many of the planes on the faces don't line up properly - making people look cross eyed, crooked mouthed etc.

    Correct basic shapes will create a good base, without that no matter of detail and finishing will hide the errors.

    Good start to your sketchbook and look forward to seeing the improvement.

    Thanks for the comments. I used guidelines earlier, but found it a lot faster to draw without them. I now see that you are very correct, and I will start using guides yet again. What I need to focus on is proportion. Then I think rendering.

    Thanks for the comments again I really appreciate it!

    Haven’t actually drawn anything today. A shame really. Instead I played with Zbrush and Photoshop. I’m, believe it or not, satisfied by the outcome.

    Zbrush for modeling and texturing. Photoshop for overpainting and post work. Some hours used

    Zbrush is an extreme useful tool indeed! Trying to learn Modo as well.

    Damn! haven't drawn in a long time! I've been busy learning Modo. I started modeling a guitar. After four days my computer crashed and the scene was gone! I became furious!

    anyhow... Here's a quick drawing of Bush.

    Refs used

    hm. I have to start drawing again!

    Do you think you want to do more 2d or 3d stuff professionally. As best I can tell, and i'll readily admit i'm not familiar with a lot of 3d stuff, your 3d stuff seems above average especially considering your age. The drawings are a little more rough around the edges, and while I have confidence that you will improve on them, if you want to work in 2d you'll probably want to draw your ass off, more than you've been doing and more than you think you're capable of. Draw like your life depended on it (because if thats your career, then it does!)

    Anyway, nice 3d stuff, and i'm looking forward to see how you improve in your drawings.

    Thank you McLean. I dont have any plans on becoming a professional cg-artist, so I dont think I have to draw my ass off... yet =p I havent drawn in some weeks now. Its quite hard to choose between drawing and 3d. I think I'll have a little of both.
