Another sketchbook, another journey. Lets see where this one takes me. Feel free to critique, there most welcomed.
here Ill post works from still life's. I'm Going to start simple, then slowly work my way to complex still life's. Hopefully learning about Lighting, composition, value, form, perspective etc along the way.
Each day I will pick an Object to Sketch. I will use pencil first, then off to digital. I may do some traditional Acrylic study's as well. I will try to do more pencil then digital work, I feel my pencil and observation skills there are lacking compared to my digital. I will try to tighten up my lines/rendering in the pencil as best as I can.
Thanks for taking the time to drop by and read.

Hey this looks like its going to be a very cool sketchbook. So far with what you have it appears you have a exceptional amount of skill. You have done a really great job in showing the materials through the highlights and texture. I will definatley come back here later and check out what you have done! The only gripe I have is with the digital paint of the boot the red cloth seems to draw attention away from the focus.
jimboslutstien• Thanks for dropping by and taking a look. I agree with you there about the cloth taking away from from the main Vocal. I was going to change up the cloth today but I wanted to paint a bit more with it. I might change it tomorrow to a dark blue.
Arghh, I had so much trouble with this boot. I must have re painted it at least 5 times and I am still way way off. Shows how much I need to learn Good thing I started life drawing.

Hey seth, good stuff you got goin man.
My only issue is the red is super strong in the two boots.
Just have fun.
wonderful pencilled apple on the first post!
I noticed that some of your sketched pieces look better than some
of your painted pieces, the painted ones look a bit too dark sometimes..
like the boots.
But still, you have skills!
I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!

Aveh• Thanks for drooping by.
the ANGRY filipino• Noted thanks.
I decided to put the life study's aside and whole hearty dedicate my time to the Human figure, and perspective. I want to be able to draw every muscle every angle, from memory with out reference. I am working through Bridgman Constructive anatomy right now. Let's see what I can learn from him.

I have a soft spot for abandoned buildings- so nice photography. I like the idea of posting an observation sketch in your book quite frequently. I also like to see that your mixing this book up with other pieces of artwork. Nicely done.
Dan, thanks man. I hope you are doing good, and school treating you well.
alleluia: Glad you like the shabby photography. Life study's are a good way to improve your over all drawing skills and observation. Some thing I need to learn to do better, Observe. Thank you for the comments.
Peetaer: Woot, awesome get going on those Bridgman he is great. Thanks for drooping by.
A bunch of sketches and older work. The Oc work is all under 15 minutes most of it is brain less farts.
That last one is really awesome. The woman in the cowboy hat looks like her legs are a bit too thin, as well as her arms.
Great sketches,i especially like your studies from life and fxddfsdbi6.jpg rocks too!
Fireflights, Thanks for dropping by mate. I have to agree with you a bit and disagree with you a little to, because she did have a small frame. I should of paid more attention to my rendering, I think I flattened the form in places. I will watch my proportions more.
kidult, Phhft, You are looking fine and dandy your self. Thanks mate.
Rumi, Here are some more photos just for you! I hope you like them.
Thank you so much Inkfish. Glad you could drop by.
A couple more pictures and some scribbles.
you've got some great rendering in those portraits and fruit. id love to see you develop a better flow in your people. they seem really stiff, if you can get by that you'll be progressing in no time. your photos are really interesting, an abandoned place i assume? they got some cool lighting.
that is really cool, even if you were just dicking around, i like the result.
jdeegz, Thanks again for the crits man. I 100% agree on my faces, people looking stiff. It's some thing I am really working hard to smooth out. I think Once I start figure drawing it will smooth out its self.. Gestures, gestures and more gestures.
Some photos from the storm today.
a la bapsi, I am glad you like those photos they where defiantly fun to take. I took 100 pictures that day but that is pretty easy to do when your snapping away happily. Thanks for dropping by.
Well I totally messed up the Initial sketch. Not so much proportion wise but angles. I started playing around with rendering in different areas. Playing with different hatching methods, building up values. In other parts I would try to nail the value in the first go, but it gave me a very inconsistent grain and value. I may work on it for a bit longer, having to much fun with the rendering.
Edit: A couple Gestures.

Wow, I like the faces really much
riven phoenix rulz
The OC session earlier today was great! Those gestures are looking good man. One thing you could work on is your faces, they're often quite a bit out of proportion/or the features look a bit unnatural. Nothing a couple of Loomis head studies won't fix, hehe. I'll upload that OC session we had the other week in my sketchbook later.
Silvenon: You're to kind dude. Thanks for dropping by.
Dile_: Yeah right dude. I have so far to go and so much to learn. Cheers though. Take care Will.
PieMonster: I agree dude. You fucking riped shit up dude. Lets say it again you have improved like a crazy man on fire. haha.. I always skew my drawing and faces. Vrooom, I have to study Loomis again though it has been far to long and I finally was able to get his books. Thanks for the crits they will be looked after.
Just some Scribbles scribbles with shity values yay..
