Good stuff here. Your figures seem a little flat. I recommend looking at some of Vilppu or Bridgemans stuff.
Sketch freely and true, and when you're loose and limp and ready, give a drawing-structure a chance. Alot of your faces have perspective issues, and while I know that boxes REALLY SUCK, they friggin work.
Break everything down into blueprints first and then freestyle the shit out of every cool pose you can think of.
nice sketchbook you've got here. Why the brake after march 19? Keep it up my friend. Especially the anatomy studies! I think anatomy is one of the things one can practice most. I will have to do a lot of human-anatomy-studies during the next mounths too. So I guess we will be parallel-suffering The good thing dealing with the human anatomy is: one can improve a lot in a small amount of time (if done right). So cya around All the best to you!
btw: I like your pen-drawings. One is not as free to erase stuff as with the pencil, but that's not always a bad thing!
Feel free to visit my sketchbook and give me some advice!
Your sketchbook is very nice. And thanks for the comment you left on my own'I appreciate it!
My sketchbook thread:
Someone already suggested Villpu. Which he has some nice exercises that just deal with getting the feel of form and such which is really the first big step of drawing. Once you can start to see and grasp form things open up in many ways. Best way to do this is exercises like in Villpu and just life drawing (the dreaded words many hate but they're fun if you just actively think about thinks as you do them, observation is key).
Nice sketches. I like your architectural drawings and vehicles are very interesting to look at. And , yeah, your figures are stiff, but anyway they have some zest in it, I hope you'll keep it
yeah i got some Dvd's from vilpu now going to watch it when i get some time but thx for the tip
I'm not really on a break just been bussy a lott a i have like half a sketch book that needs to scanned in will do that soon when i finish my last pages
Sure will do i'm watching bridgemann right now for construction and i'm going to watch a Dvd of glenn vilpu soon
It's been long Time But i'm back I'm going to try to paint everyday now and update the sketchbook everyday it's not a promise cause i still got shitloads of work for school but i need to improve i'm only going to post my latest paints for now drawing will be scanned in later
These really suck but i've tried painting without color picking and i'm still struggeling with anatomy
But i hope i will get better if i manage to paint every day
Not Really That proud of the first off many to come but i'll one each day without collor picking and i hope i'll get better at this i have to Ride everyday about 45 min to school on the train so i can as well use that time to train my painting skillz
Any tips and Tricks are welcome
Tommorow another day another study
Really great mech work and perspective studies! I really love your figure studies as well, I certainly see some improvements. Anatomy can be tough, but take it slow and really study what you see. You'll learn a lot if you start thinking "why" forms interact with each other the way they do instead of just drawing an arm where there is an arm. Keep it up!
You have some really nice work, and the progress you are making is very apparent.
My advice, Since I see you do some really good work with straight lines, mechanical objects, and perspective, is to try and think of the figure as first a series of simple shapes (spheres, cubes, cones, etc). Then think of the human a a machine. You like to make robots, so thinking of muscles as pulley's or hydraulics may help.
Your fore arm studies at the bottom of i think was page 2, I thought were really nice, but It seems that you still have certain problem areas with anatomy.
These more recent studies though show a great improvement from where you were starting from.
Also, try to watch your proportions and angles. If you refer to your photo reference in the B&W smoking woman, you should be able to see that you have made her eyes slightly too lard, and her mouth has the wrong angles. try and measure more before you get too engaged with the piece. you know, the the saying goes, "measure twice, cut once".
I really do think you have a knack for perspective though. I'm a bit envious honestly.
Fudge this AWESOME place!!!
My SKETCHBOOK: please critique! i can take it!
To limit one's maximum knowledge is to maximize one's limits.
Sanity is wasted on the boring.
So i didn't posted a painting today i'm a bit bussy with school trying to Catch things up So i Pasted One Of my works for school instead Have to shade and colour this by the end of this month but first adjusted some things on the design i hope you'll like it
And BTW does anyone know how to change your Sketchbook Thumbnail
.i've looked it up on the forums and found if you attach new images they will become your new thumb.
But mine didn't change at all.
Pfff really not to happy about this paint either gotta watch some paint tuts anyone Has some good Ref for looking at Master Painters or something I need to get Better This one took me about 40 min
New Wip Assignement needs to finished on Tuesday
New wip final hours till assignement finish
And this willl be the final it still needs improvement but i'm out of time for this one mayby i'll rework her in my freetime mayby after the exams
My impression with your most recent figure drawings is that you are jumping into lots of detail work before the basic forms are worked out. In my opinion, it's easier to study figure drawing from the live model rather than from photos, because you can translate from the 3D to the 2D in your own mind, rather than guessing what's going on in the photo, which has already done all the interpretation for you. You might try doing a ton of studies where you ignore all detail and just get really fanatical about getting the overall proportions nailed down. For instance, I applied the stamp filter to one of your reference photos, just to wipe out all of the detail, and show nothing but the rudimentary light and form information. This can be a helpful way to eliminate much of the distracting noise, and make the underlying structure easier to grasp.
Just another old dog learning new tricks.
My environment concepts thread in the entertainment design section
artwork for "the guard", a webcomic that I am illustrating
Two things with fundamentals one with anatomy and the other with line
1. If you like doing heads then draw skulls like outlines not painted to get the proportions of a head it really helps a lot in general anatomy studies help alot like taking a photograph of a head then on a different layer drawing a skull. I am being really serious though it helps a lot.
3 a video for face drawing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDG9TUHD1Cw
2. It is a bit apparent that some things are drawn from the wrist which is ok but using the elbow and shoulder can give longer straighter lines and neater hatching or shading.which brings sophistication in terms of knowing the fundamentals and achieving a good line quality.
here are some videos on both are good.one is more for artists the other is for designers and
other than keep on keeping on you have gotten better from the first page which is always good to improve and put in alot of hours like alot but I am also kinda bad about studing so yea
