    N1ck's Sketchbook

    Hi all

    This is my first Sketchbook and I am a total beginner. I started drawing about 5 months ago but I didn't take it really serious. But now I want to take it serious

    So here is some older stuff from about 2 to 3 months ago. Later I will post some pages of my current sketchbook. For the last one I had some reference for the water. But mostly my colors are horrible… I have to get better.

    Apologies for the bad photoquality, I only have a camera and no scanner.

    -Nick

Hey mate, sorry for not replying sooner! You must think i suck

Great sketches man, You are doing the right thing, studies! Keep doing those, they look great, and as you keep drawing you will improve a lot! Doing studies, whatever its from life, or just studying paintings by old masters etc will improve your observation sense, hopefully you'll also take notes while studying that you can use later

Keep posting man! You are going strong

    Hey, thanks for the critics. They really motivated. Unfortunately I don't have much time today so I just can show a fast warmupsketch from reference. I know, my shading and linequality is horrible but I hope practise will solve this.

    Ey man, thought I'd comment on your SB now I have the time for it. Really appreciate you commenting on mine.

    Anyway, I like the rendering you did on the first few drawings (spoon, fruit). I also like the drawing you did of your sketchbook with the pencils and all lying on it. Watch out though with the foreshortening on the reference doll (or what the hell it's called) standing there.

    As Dile said, keep doing what you're doing, it's good! And do some more anatomy studies, for the head I recommend you take a look at Drawing the Human Head by Burne Hogarth and Drawing the Head and Hands by Andrew Loomis.

    Good luck!

    Nice sketches, always great to see an artist starting out. I think you're on to the right things and it's great you have joined our sketchgroup so we can learn together. I still feel like a beginner every day after two years, so hopefully you won't make the same mistakes as I did. See you at our next sketchgroup meeting...

    Hey all, thanks a lot for the critics…they are really appreciated.
    Sorry for the long lack of updates but I was very busy with school and I had to focus on that manly. Now I finally have holidays and a lot more time to draw.

    This one I drew on my mother's birthday card. Copied from an old photo
    N1ck's Sketchbook

    And some crappy sb pages. As you can see I was in a chinese restaurant
    Btw sorry for the bad photoquality, I'm really thinking of getting a scanner.

    N1ce sketches keep it up!
    You have pretty nice perspective on the house, something I cant seem to get right
    but it looks good, keep it up and you will certainly improve
    I am looking forward to seeing more!
    Spending time on each line in shading is a very good habit, so start now and you will improve rapidly!
    Also as far as proportions go if something looks funky then remember that area and do some anatomy studies with it later, that will help too, but overall you have some really nice things
    keep it up

    oh and stop by SB sometime it would be nice to hear from you sometime

    ney n1ck thx for stopping by!! I hope i can someday join your group, brono is mailing me but i have to work most weekends. :-(
    from your posts i can see that you're doing many various things at the time. what helped me alot is the idea of learning and practising one thing at a time.

    I got that from a cheap artbook, the author didn't miss a chance to mention how important it is to practise one thing at a time, he wrote that he tells his students to draw only structure/line for a good 3-4 months. really learning to define form and texture just by simple line.
    when you think you're far enough, continue to values (light and shade) in black and white. only values. the same thing goes with colors.
    bobby chiu (imaginism) told a similar approach. it worked fine for me.

    oh my god i wrote so much... :-. maybe this can help you.
    if you want we can go sketching (unter der woche nach den ferien) sometime. just pm me.

    go on youtube and search for bobby chiu, his videos are really great.

    throtailer: thx, im just starting with anatomy. i got bridgman's "constructive anatomy"

    jedininjaman: thanks for the motivation. the perspective on the house is soo basic, you can manage that too

    dile: hehe, i would have told you on msn later anyway. But i have to update more often. i've been drawing everyday, just didnt put all crap in here. ah, and btw you are really a great help on msn, so thank you!

    kfeeras: thank you very much for the tips, i think i have to apply some of them^^ Of course i would like to going with you out sketching, we have to mail when the time is good.

    -------

    Really have nothing worthy to show which is my problem at these times. I just get frustrated by the stuff i draw and paint … and some of my crap i produce is even worser than the stuff i did at my very beginning.

    So this isn't really something to show, I just want to post something cause i think its better solving problems not alone.

    And btw. i even am not able to post some old stuff i did digital cause my hd crashed with all my stuff on it :/
