Hey moroi! Lovley pensketches, I really dig the creatures! You've also got a good grasp of lines and form. I think you should continue study the human figure though, draw lots from life and complement it with pure anatomy studies. For instance you seem to not fully grasp the bonestructure in faces, study the planes, and draw alot of self portraits, that usually does the trick.
Some really intriguing stuff here. You have a great 'blocky' sort of style of shading that's a cross between Brett Helquist, for example, and regular curvy lines.
Dunno if your'e familiar with the guy, but he just came to mind. Does the illustrations for A Series of Unfortunate Events. Can't find any actual images online, but basically he uses small groups of straight strokes facing the same direction, but each group faces a slightly different way, until you get a sort of 'jittered but flowing' effect. It's hard to describe.. check out the books though.
Looking forward to more.
Pixie Bergman- Thank you! And I'll pm you. Oranje Joe- Thanks! Yep, its a sketchbook moleskine, i loooove them. Wish they sold bigger sizes with the thick paper is my only complaint. drewfarr- Thank ya', I can't wait until I have time too. For the next week all these sketches are for school related work. Oh well just one more week. ninjacat11-Thank you! I always have to scribble alot before i'm happy with the proportions. xD blenditall- Yeah, I'm vaguely familiar with the book covers. I remember thinking they always looked cool. Thanks for the compliment, he has some awesome work.
Okay, worked on my term paper all day today (its on motorcycles, tho' i can't complain). So here's yesterday's sketches. Most of this is master's studies or some were on-site sketches. I'm having to finish up a sketchbook/journal for class, and so that's where this is all coming from. (took a class in Germany, and this journal's based on the trip...)
First is a dead rabbit from a Dutch master, then a Katherine-Kollwitz study, Charlottenberg palace, Eames' chairs, and a snail & fish carvings supporting a reliquary.
Hey there. Might want to study some skulls and faces, judging from that last picture of the woman holding her baby. You'll definitely see the change with practice. The lines of the chairs are super-clean. They look really solid. Nice job.
Thanks guys! I really, really want to just sit down and do some studies. But school comes first, and for the next week my ass is getting kicked by a term paper and finishing up this "journal" thing.
So, some stuff I finished in the journal today:
Altar of Zeus, German country side, and a Berlin cathedral.
I think ninjacat11 really nailed it -- a loose, but structured look to them. I really like the cathedral/church.
Self portrait looks pretty good, same with the second image (and third for that matter) but a little more detail on that motorcycle would be good
thanks guys, yeah, there could have been a lot more to that motorcycle sketch.
was too sleepy to scan the couple of things i did yesterday, but here they are: a study of a friend and then monster with an old man's head. i've been fixated lately on the idea of monsters with human heads. i want to try and sketch some more soon....
