    Vaejoun - Sketchbook +++

    Hi there,
    finally, I decided to make a sketchthread too.
    I wanna try to load up some good pieces.

    No more talking, lets start.
    For today, just some black and white sketchs and drawings.
    Usually made in school when I was bored. ^^

    Nice start, Vaejoun! The sneakers make me think of a "before" and "after" pic! (Could be a foot freshener ad, one day......)

    Hey there are shoes and everything o_o Cool.

    As for the Vulcan.. Is there really that much shade left of his nose? There's highlighting smudged _his_ left cheek; maybe you've erased too much?
    I like the head studies, I'm sure you're learning a great deal from those.

    Be sure to update your sketchbook, and please post some full figures! Looking forward to see more.

    @Vigilandus

    Spock was just a first try for drawing faces.
    In that case it was more important for me, that you can recognize him Than the 100% correct shading.

    Ok, In the last days I painted a face every day and this are the results. I have to say that I am very happy with myself. ^^

    Maybe someone knows the woman.
    Its my interpretation of Major Kusanagi from "Ghost in the shell".

    Something new.
    This time I tried a riugh copy of a work from Linda Bergkvist.
    Of course her picture is a lot bigger and better. ^^
    But for my case it was a nice training for values and faces.

    By the way, has someone some hints an tips how to create the texture of the skin without using the photo-copy-past method ?

    And again a new one.
    At first I was frustrated, because it didnt look like I wanted it to look, but then I kept on working on it. Step by step it became better. And after some reworks this is what came out. Again a face painting, this time an Arabian, the light is supposed to come from below.

    So my new personal rule for painting is:
    Keep on it and dont stop when it doesnt look good. Instead look whats wrong and make it better until it looks like you want it.

    Hi folks, its been a while.
    Today I started painting again and this is what came out.

    I made a lot of drawings on figures and faces and now I try to combine it with the mother of all problems (vaelues)
    Choosing the correct values is a very tough thing to do, but when you get it it looks more realistic even if the figure is bad or deformed.

    This time an older picture i made with watercolors.
    I wanted to post an elephant too, but the scanner ruined the colors.
    Anyway, the rhino is the better sketch.

    Ey man, looks pretty nice, but got some crits though:

    In most drawings the faces aint correct, try some anatomy studies of the skull and the muscles on it.

    Good start, Loving the rhino! very creative and f-f-fresh.


    Thanks for dropping by!

    @DeJackhalz:
    youre right, some more studies would be good.
    I will try to do some.

    Here is what I started yesterday evening and finished today.
    this one was really hard to do, and I am still unhappy with the lower part of his body, but I had no photos, nor somebody who could have posed for me. So just dont look at that area. XD

    At the end I tested some water color brushes and I like it. Makes the picture a lot fresher and lively.

    So the picture:
    His royal fatness:

    i like the rhino one a lot. very nice color scheme. it shows that if your tonal value relationships are correct, you can tweak the colors around as you choose.

    i would suggest looking at a lot of black and white photographs and doing studies of eyes from them. right now, some of your drawings need to be tweaked so the eyes sit back in the skull's eye sockets. look at my pen and ink sketchbook (see link in my signature) for some ideas on getting started.

    Great faces in here. Really good, both drawings and paintings. Recognised the study after Linda Bergkvist, mainly from the color palette, which means you've done a great job on that. I hope you don't use color pick to pick colors from originals, that would be not good.
    About your question on creating the texture of the skin, I think texture brushes are what you need here. I once saw steps of a painting study after Bouguereau, which showed a really great use of texture brushes, achieving some really nice look of the skin. So just to say it's possible this way.

    cheers

    Oh my, 2 years since my last post in my sketchbook.... way too long.
    I had some time to work on my skills though I concentrated more on realistic illustrations for science books than on humans. In CA I try to get a place for creature design too. I am practicing for different animals like horses, reptiles, cows dinos and so on.

    At the moment I am in a working spree so I think there should be some new works in the next weeks.

    Ok, for now just a PS horse speedy. I am still not a pro with PS but it improved.^^

    Wonderful update, I really like the last image. The horse has a wonderful sense of movement and contrast but the front legs seem a bit broken. The head and neck are very nice but the rest of the body is a bit difficult to understand.

    Finally, my scanner is working again. But somehow I just cant get a good scan of a pencil drawing. Maybe its because the original is over A4 size...
    Dont know.

    Well here are 3 pages
