Here is my final version of the man. I could spend more time on it but its not worth it for something that was really me starting to get to grips with photoshop.
Um some stuff for today.
The digital one is the start of me screwing around on photoshop. I'm trying to start something from scratch rather than colouring a pencil drawing.
The others are some hands I drew in Geography in school today. We had this drama teacher covering the lesson who didn't really care about me drawing.
Thank you very much silvestri99. Yeah about the faces I always feel my characters sort of lack real character and its becuase the faces look a bit funny. An when they look bad I always end up giving them some mask or somthing that covers thefeatures I don't like drawing. I think I'm gonna do a self portrait some time soon to help with drawing faces. About the proportions, yeah on the last figure that I painted fully his left upper arm is waaay to long and his hand would probably reach his knee, which is wrong, so yeah. I'll keep drawing.
Yeah I decided to do a self portrait but it was way too late at night so it turned out kinda strange. It does look like me though so I guess that makes it a success. Oh the other three faces were quickly copied out of a biking magazine (MBUK).
Only 14? Pretty good, mate. Keep it up with the anatomy studies, those look good. If you stick with them it will pay huge dividends in the future. Plenty of life drawing while not neglecting your imagination. I would say work more traditional than digital for now though. Learn the basics of traditional drawing first, then move on. Do both and stay with it! You have massive potential. Good luck.
Watch out for Piranhas
Cheers Piranha, Im gonna do some more anatomy tonight. I'm trying to up this sketchbook to a daily update if possible. With the digital aspect of art, while I'm trying to do more traditional, I still want to use photoshop as not to waste the money spent on the software. Plus at the moment anything I colour in photoshop will probably have to be drawn first with pencils. For now though here is a quick pencil line art of some guy with a cool sword. I was trying to go with something a little less conventional with the weapon and just kept on expanding the hilt and blade of this sword and this is how it ended up...
The only thing I don't like is that some of the proportions are a tad off and that he looks a bit pixie-ish if you know what I mean.
Here is another self portrait but this one is based on a photo which is about a month old. I used it becuase I had a different expression, i.e. a smile. Also I was wearing a strange hat and my hair was slightly shorter, and all in all I looked completely different.
Maybe some anatomy later...maybe...
Hey man, thanks for visitng the studies were based on various resources. I can't remember exactly but I think that the ones on first page were partly from Loomis books, partly from photo refs. Just a combo of various refs. But the source really doesn't matter that much, you just have to use what you find the way it fits you.
keep drawing and post more ! You are young!
Wow! 14 years old and going strong... Keep it up! I suggest doing as many anatomy studies now as you possibly can so you can soak up all the information... learn as many different techniques as possible and dont be afraid to try something new!...
My internet was down yesterday so I couldn't post this anatomy study. I'll probably post more for today later. Any days without art posted are probably cuased by my unreliable internet. For now though, here are the three main states of the bicep.
