Sketchbook: Bryan Crow's Sketchbook (Sergeant) - Page 3
Trying to figure out the female face measurements and such.
female face 001 from imagination
Hi Everyone! It's been awhile since I last posted anything. I've been really busy with school and been doing many many still life and anatomy studies. I've filled 2
sketchbooks in the last 2 months maybe.
The following is a photo reference study of a female face after countless hours of doing planes and skull studies.
The rest are still life studies done in charcoal on 18x24 inch drawing paper followed by some anatomy (done from memory) and a planes and skull still life.
Here is a
Master Study followed by my other studies.
My study week breakdown:
M= Figure and Anatomy
T= Head Planes, Skull, & Muscles
W= Perspective, Form, light, etc...
Sun= Master Study
Thanks for looking and have a good weekend everyone.
Here's another week of studies. Nothing digital this time.
I've started studying perspective using 'Vanishing Point' by Jason Meyer. I found the Loomis stuff hard to start off with.
I'm trying to do a lot of gesture and life drawings.
It may not be high quality right now but I'm not spending much time on rendering, just trying to understand the fundamentals a bit better, and anatomy of course.
Here is some more work from this week. A lot of gesture studies, some really bad drawings and some perspective with reference from the book 'Vanishing Point'.
Here's a painting I did the other day. Almost forgot about it. It's far from refined but I got bored with it.
A slow week of studies. I missed my perspective day due to the holiday but the fun I had makes up for it.
I think I'm going to incorporate a landscape day into my routine. Backgrounds need lovin' too.
The top painting was referenced for the emotion. (I'll be doing more with expressed emotions.)
The Lighthouse Keeper
It's been a few since I've posted but I've been really busy working on this short Graphic Novel in a collaboration with a friend of mine who wrote it (Matthew Meyers). This has been a great study on composition and dramatic lighting and many other things. I had to fight not to actually paint scenes every time.

Page 3. This is alot different than I'm used to.
Page 4. Still figuring this out.
Page 5. Having some fun with tension and panels.
Page 6. Working on actions for easy use of the pen tool.
Page 7. Getting more comfortable with the pen tool. In this scene the guy snaps and hacks up his wife.
Page 8. Pen tool techniques are getting more interesting and easier to use. I'll upload the 9th and final page soon.
The last page of this short graphic novel. No captions added, the guy who wrote it said he wants to do those.
Playing around with Adobe Illustrator.
Working on some color and style stuff. I always find myself drawing dark stuff so every now and again I like to lighten it up.
Forgot to upload this previously.
