heya, been looking around here a lot and decided i need to draw more. so i'm gonna try to keep up with a sketchbook on here and see if that helps to give me motivation. i do digital work in my illustrations, but i'm pretty sure i'm gonna keep all my studies in traditional media, mostly graphite.

wow cool skull
Hi there, nice sense of taste, like the skulls. So much buty in these things, what could make them even better is to studie them closer and find more of that crispy variation that excists in the form.
And a suggestion whenit comes the studies, think about what you want to studie and observ, for example the hands, if it was the form you wanted to get to read, make an adventure to discover the planes that makes up the form.
And your doing the right, to keep to drawing, it's the hardest thing to master I believe. And it'll amke all the work so much easier when you start painting. Bacuse then you can focus on the colors and those relationsships and you don't have to juggle to many balls at once.
One question, do you like the work of Odd Nerdrum?
Good luck, cheers.
thanks yoonate, that was a fun one to draw. =)
Pencilator, Nerdrum is one of my favorite artists. he's one of the few artists when i see their work in person i feel something. ya know? but yeah, trying to improve with the drawings, thanks for the kind words. =)
all the skull stuff is old. i did some hand studies the other day, and the only thing i did today was a single hand study from life- been a busy couple of days, haven't had a chance to draw as much as i'd like.
thanks a la bapsi and Bill =)
couldn't sleep so i found myself roaming the forums. here's the first page from my sketchbook- a 3hr skull study. goin home for a week or so, so no updates for a while, but i should have some nice stuff to show when i'm back from new york. i plan on hitting up the Met. should be fun =)
My my, I can see some admirable modelling with the cross-hatching.
Lovely skull, the details gives it a punch.
Fitzin - thanks man =) that skull was a lot of fun to work on
Pencilator - lol, i'd love to study with him, but i doubt that'll ever happen =) hope your holiday season went well
been busy doing layouts for a short story comic job i got, but i did take a trip to the met, and i got one good/decent drawing outta that. heh... i'll do more soon.
Very nice Mate! Outstanding lines!
Mmmm. Skulls. I'm obsessed with them.
I like the ones with a splash of red. Nice pencil work.
The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.
Wow, man...really diligent work! I want to see more! The skull and hand studies are all really gorgeous...nice use of color too...love those washes...the anatomy stuff looks good as well, though it seems like you're generalizing some of the forms, think about doing some muscle studies, it helps to really know what's under the surface! I'm sure you've done those before though, it looks like you've got a pretty good handle on it.
Also, thanks a bunch for those comments you keep dropping on my self portrait thread, it keeps me going! Thank you!
RandAlThor - thanks =)
sketcheth - hey man, thanks for the kind words. the reason i didn't do muscle studies in those drawings is because the muscles weren't really defined enough to give me confidence that they're the right ones in the right place. and i'd rather not draw it, than draw it wrong. ya know? i should do a few of those however, never hurts to refresh your memory. keep up the awesome work man.
some minor updates: been busy working on design/code of a website for the gallery i show in. just finished it tonight, should be up and running in a month with full artwork and such... but it's kept me from drawing as much as i'd like to...
worked more on the drawing today, hope to get a lot done tomorrow on it...
and i put in an older drawing i did based off of a sketch by ingres.
had a down day today, didn't feel like doing much. so i put in a movie and found myself pausing it and drawing the people i was seeing. also a blue seashell. (part of one anyways).
worked more on the paintings, i'll post a shot or two after the next few layers.
I like dark and disturbing stuff... therefore I like what's in this sketchbook so far
I find the one with the key holes on their faces most disturbing.
I also don't want to offer nitpick critique because you're clearly aware of your mistakes and you're doing some studies which are going to help correct your issues. Keep up!
thanks for the kind words voraz, those posts were the studies, where as the other work is just graphite stuff that's planned to be taken further. like the angel of death that i just finished playin around with. =)
been workin on the key hole people paintings, i hope to have them done by the first tuesday in feb. we'll see.
thanks kuroart, yeah, i seem to do a lot better when i'm drawing from life. =)
here's a materials test i did tonight. i have my figure class tomorrow, and it's the first time in a month that i'm gonna get to use a model from life, so i wanted to test out colors/materials/techniques so i can just get down to the drawing. =)
Wow that's a beautiful color. You've done a lot of nice stuff since I stopped by last! I think that pausing movies thing is a good idea...I should do that more...not that I need an excuse to watch movies...
The graphite illustration looks really nice, I just wish it was a little sharper in certain areas of the figure...those gash things are really powerful in how sharp they are and I wish that was continued throughtout.
Keep up the real nice work and thanks for the comments, dude!
Nice work on the skull
I really like the portrait of the woman, it's quite lovely the contrasting warm and cool tones you've laid on top of one another....fantastico. Also the man right above her...excellent lighting...wow...that really just glows. Keep it up! I'm hoping I can get into a figure drawing class this semester...looks so fun!
I really really really like that silentwinweb skull thing
