    The Sketchbook of Yacob

    My name is Jake, and I am 17 years old. I like to draw, and have drawn and doodled ever since I can remember. I mostly just draw when I am bored (all the time in school) or just when I feel like drawing (and am not too busy). I have never taken an art class until this year in high school. Its a pretty lame General Art course. Anyways, here are some of my drawings and a few Loomis studies. Comments are appreciated.

    I reposted the sketches that were here originally, they were too big.

    The more you draw, using what you've learned, the further you'll go, Yacob!
    Welcome to ca, by the way...

    Sorry that the scans are so big, trying to work that out so they're easier to view.

    Haven't been able to do much outside today, too rainy. Here is a warrior sketch.

    Just trying to get a hang of this scanning and downloading thing. I know the quality for these scans aren't great but I'll keep trying.

    Here are some more sketches I did. One of a slipper, some Loomis head studies, some heads w/ no ref., a sketch of my brother in the car, and some more Loomis studies.

    Redo

    Okay, the first time I tried to post these sketches they were way too big so here goes round 2. Hopefully this will work better so you don't have to scroll a mile just to see the pictures.

    Some eyes, a baseball player from ref., some life drawings, some heads, Loomis study, and a self portrait that I realize now is quite skewed.

    Nice start, man! These anatomy exercises are essential. And Loomis is a bery good beginning.
    Do some perspective studies as well. It will improve your figure drawing: you will get a better sence of depth.
    Keep going!
    (By the way :the link to your sketchbook doesn't seem to work)

    Today I tried to do some Loomis perspective studies, but it didn't turn out too well. I defenitely need to work harder on perspective.

    The next one is an unfinished sketch of a Spartan warrior I thought up.

    Nice studies! Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get the hang of perspective soon (I'm learning as well). One thing I would try to do is draw from life once you get comfortable with anatomy; if there's a park nearby, or a cafe or restaurant you can go to (or even in class), bring your sketchbook and do quick sketches of the people around you. Oh, and taking a figure drawing class really helps. Keep up the good work. ^^

    Loomis is good good stuff. your notes are real good, and those hands are lookin pretty good.
    the angle on the shoe looks a bit off though

    Linguini- Perspective is tough, but I'll keep trying. Yeah, I need to get a smaller sketchbook so I can take it with me places, right now the one I have is too big to be carrying around all the time.

    28chelseaslater- Thanks! I've been working on hands. Yeah I see what you mean about the shoe, thanks for pointing that out.

    Gspot- Thanks for the advice and encouragement. I agree that Loomis is great.

    Well I've been out of town for the weekend but here's what I did at my grandparents house. Still life drawings and my finished Spartan.

    Nice studies. Try to be more loose, it looks like you are afraid to make mistakes. All I can say is make mistake, you will learn alot from it. Just relax and dont try to render every single detail.

    Ow and do many more perspective studies, it will give you a much better insight on things.

    keep it up and welcome to ca!
