    Know1's Sketchbook

    Hi,

    I'm starting a sketchbook here to hopefully force myself to draw more instead of just looking at other peoples amazing artwork all day long.
    Graphite, charcoal, Indian Ink, Vectors, acrylics and watercolor.

    Hey fat kid (that sounds so weird )
    Thanks for the suggestions. Anatomy is something I'm going to work on. I'm waiting for two books to arrive to help me with that.
    And I see what you mean with the saturation levels, I'll keep that in mind.
    I'm not an industrial designer, those vector graphics are more of a by-product of some website designs I did in the past.

    I bought an A5 sketchbook today so no more excuses to study those things everyday...
    So here's a quick sketch just to fill page 1 plus an acrylic color study of that rat drawing in my opening post.

    Welcome to CA. I agree with The Fat Kid. Proportions are off, anatomy is a little off. But doing good. Post more please.

    Thanks for the welcome Envisor I'll keep practicing those things on a regular basis.

    Today I went for a self portrait (sitting in front of a mirror) It took me awhile to get everything kinda in the right place so that should explain my frustrated expression. Next time I'll try and smile.. hehe

    hey man. the drawings are pretty good but what really impresses me (being a graphic designer) is the buttons you made. they're really well done. simple and strong. really outstanding on that part.

    hope to see more of your imagination drawings. lats bro welcome to the forums

    Thanks ped454. I like graphics like that too (that's why I make them ) but I want to do more traditional stuff. I actually started out with vectors.
    This is a Dutch Ebook cover for a Tarot book I did awhile back. All vector except for the three images in there.

    I've started reading "Bettty Edwards - Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain".
    I already did the self-portrait 3 posts up. Here are the exercises that were done upside down + an extra one.

    The one with the horse is done on two A4's scotchtaped together. Upside down I didn't realize how big I started with the horse's feet so I had to add another piece of paper.

    Your intro sentence-- well said! Ahaha
    Anyway, your vector graphics are great! And (as said before) your technique and craftsmanship is amazing (and wow, such a neat and organized process for inking, ahaha). Maybe to concentrate on anatomy- do less inked and/or polished images, and do a cradload of sketches and studies? Of course, seems like you're doing that already anyway, but would just like to bring it up. (And if youre interested in getting some anatomy books, I learned a lot from this guy: http://marshallart.com/seminars/reso...man/index.html . Maybe that can help!)
    Keep us updated!

    Hi tytseng, I'm reading Bridgman right now and 'The human figure' book arrived too so I'm still slowly improving my overall anatomy knowledge. It's just going sooo slow I recently went to a museum again and right now I'm fascinated with drapery (trying to paint it).


    3 small acrylic paintings, 7 by 5 inch.

    Reference used is here somehwere...

    Two wolves just chillin' in acrylic.
    The second one is kind of a self portrait at 2AM. The smallest charcoal drawing I've made so far (a5). White prismacolor pencil for the highlights.

    A couple of bottles in acrylic.
    I normally start out by making a pretty accurate linedrawing but since I started with black gesso I just went for it.
    It gives me a chance to be a bit more loose than normal, I need to do that more often. it's great fun.

    Two acrylic paintings I did yesterday to get me started again.

    The second one was too big for my scanner and the camera made it a bit blurry. Photoshop auto colors added to get some of those colors back.

    My Last update was from March 7th, 2008 so it's about time I started again!!


    The first one is graphite on toned paper with a bit of charcoal and a white pencil for the highlights, just to see how much I have actually forgotten in a year.
    I should really start doing anatomy studies. And I will (this time..)

    The second and third are watercolor which I'm actually pretty pleased with.

    Anyway, I'll be sure not to wait another year before I update

    Lotsa lovely traditional stuff here, particularly love your bottles and landscapes.
    Just keep practising your anatomy and you'll be laughing hmm?
    Keep working yourself hard

    Two self portraits.
    1) too wide.. (charcoal)
    2) too tall.. (pencil + white pastel pencil)
    But I learned some new stuff so eventually I'll get it right.

    More of the same stuff I've already done before.. One is with a ballpoint pen, the other is with copic markers.

    Another hand drawing in Photoshop but with a "wooden figure", I can't remember what those things are actually called.

    Two self portraits from 22 July and 24 July to get me started drawing again before I really start looking for a life drawing class/group in the area.
    It's been over a year since my last update. I need to stop fearing white paper. Black gesso helps I suppose.

    Once again a self portrait. This time with Indian ink diluted with water and a little red watercolor to give it a hint of color.

    Wow, almost three years since I posted anything here. I guess I'll call this post tempus fugit, seems appropriate. Here are some landscapes.
