    Calis' sketchbook *update 7/18*

    Whats up all
    I'm new here. I've been drawing since... well, as long as I can remember.
    I don't know how I found this place but I did and so I thought I'd post some stuff here.

    Enjoy!

    those cards are sick mate. nice bold posterised images, good use. However, judging from your other drawings, i would say you could work on smoother transition from dark to midtone to highlight, and so on and so forth. seems like your spotting general areas of light and dark, which is great, but then struggling developing tone from that point onwards. unfortunately my minds drawn a blank as to where you can find stuff to read or look at to help you in that department, but its out there somewhere.

    anywho, welcome etc, this is a great place, far too many talented peeps more than willing to help others out, and of course a great deal of ridiculously good art to get inspired by, but im sure you already knew that.

    Here I'm practicing some skeletal structure. I took some photos and sketched out the pose, went over the lines with ink and the drew in the skeleton with red marker. On the second one I tool a green marker and drew in what I thought should be fixed in it according to the sketch and the photograph.
    crits appreciated

    Very nice work! Only one thing I'd like to point out- you seem to only have worked from photos and a bit of imagination in that last one. You should try working from life! Photos are a bit of a crutch in that everythings already put there in two dimensional form. You should get used to converting 3D to 2D yourself.

    moon: yeah i know, i should be drawing more from life lol, but i have no model around and i have no big enough mirror in comfortable drawing distance lol i'm lazy as hell
    but, i'll have all that plus plenty of models once i go back to school so i'll be working on that

    amontillado: thanx dude, appreciate it, i tried to incorporate as many things from the movie as i could in this lol

    so yeah, i haven't posted in a while and thought "hey, i got a few minutes free, so lets post"
    i haven't gotten much work done because of my new job, i work in a lowe's distribution center now, 10 hour days of walking and lifting, killer stuff, plus i have to be up at 430 am every day
    anyways, here's some new stuff
