Some lovely figure studies!
Good to see more fellow English posters on here.
Can see your working hard, keep it up.
Looking for Feedback! Please visit my sketchbook..
Kambei ShimadaĖ Thank you! Iím definitely going to keep going.
Ooh, second page!
Didnít get round to updating for a couple of days. Iíve been doing some imagination doodles and such but nothing worth posting. So here are some figures with some 30 second sketches I did more but there isnít really any point posting them. And I did a bunch of quick Photoshop studies, just trying to get into it. Nothing good but itís all progress! Hopefully
Hello! Have some of the not so good Photoshop stuff from today I did some colour blending stuff as well which helped a bit. I also did some anatomy studies but theyíre not too interesting.
you are doing well with your studies just work a little more on proportions I can't wait to see what else you post in your sketchbook
Everything is permitted
Udonhead Ė Thanks Yeah, proportions something Iím struggling with quite a bit, hopefully itíll come with more practice. Iím definitely going to look at it more
Some studies and imagination from todayÖ
Does anybody know of any good websites for landscape references? Thanks
Some of the things from today, tried to focus more on proportion but everything looked terrible. Iím hoping itís just one of those days Also, started a Photoshop study that Iím going to really try and push in order to get a better understanding of skin tones. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Quick post. Did a bit more of the study above and a quick screencap study. Iíve realised that I cannot properly paint shadows. So Iím definitely going to work on thatÖ Itís all feeling a bit one step forward two steps back but at least Iím enjoying it. Haha. I also did a bunch of imagination sketches as well in an attempt to stop worrying so much about the final outcome but the scanner is playing up.
Hey, thanks for commenting in my sketchbook. You've got some very good studies here, very clean lines.
If you want to improve your drawings from imagination, try doing some memory drawings. Go to a site like Quickposes.com, look at a pose for a minute or half a minute and then turn the monitor off and try to draw what you can remember about the pose.
Also, if you want to improve how you see values and how you paint, draw still lives or interiors from life. That's the only thing that is really lacking from your sketchbook. If you practice drawing from life a lot, it will improve your anatomy studies, your general approach, composition skills etc.
You're really promising, I hope you keep drawing, all the best

Hey, Sophie! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, I appreciate it.
I see you're doing solid work here, if I was doing half the anatomy studies you are I'd be very satisfied! Also, take black-swan up on her advice, especially the part about drawing from life, I think it's very helpful for everything.
Keep it up!
black-swan Ė Thank you so much for the advice! Iím going to start doing the drawings from imagination straight away And youíre right about doing still-lives; I think I have a tendency to avoid them. Thanks again!
Nouge Ė Thanks Iím definitely going to try and draw more frequently from life.
Hello! Iíve been in Spain on a trip for a few days and spent a lot of my time focusing on drawing people So here are some of the things that I did, thereís a mixture of drawings from life and ones copied from photographs that I took. Theyíre all mainly very quick sketches. I have a lot more but theyíre not too much different. It was nice to draw in a different environment and itís helped me to feel a lot more motivated so Iím going to go draw!
nice updates! still liking the pencils but your digital work seems to fall back a bit. i see a lot of unsaturated colors so try and play around with that as well as contrast.
I agree with kevins post. I like what i see! More color though! Don't be afraid to turn up the contrast and saturation a bit.
kevin_ - I totally agree, I really need to work on the digital side of things. Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it
Colour CodedĖ Thanks Yeah, Iím really trying to not be so afraid of using more colours; I have to stop worrying about things looking terrible because thatís the only way to learn.
I did some quick, pretty messy sketches today that I had to do for college. I also did some quick Photoshop studies trying to look at colour; I think they helped a bit. I tried one from imagination but it doesnít look too great Iím hoping tomorrow Iíll have time to start a still-life that I can put some time into
I did some of those imagination anatomy studies where you look at a figure and try to copy it form imagination. And I started a bust study but it looks so terrible so I may post it if it starts to look a bit more presentable. Iím feeling a bit lost art-wise at the moment so I think Iím just going to reassess my goals etc. all I know is that Iím still really passionate about it. I can see this becoming a recurring theme in my sketchbook, me constantly being confused about which direction to take. Maybe Iím just thinking too much into it?
Hello! Just some quick 30 second sketches, I did a page from reference and a page from imagination there are more but I didnít see much point in scanning them. Same poses drawn from memory and a page from imagination. I need to start tackling my major weaknesses some of which are hands and feet; I have a tendency to roughly sketch them in instead of actually thinking about them. So I did a couple studies but Iím going to try and look at them more later on todayÖ Speaking of weaknesses, my necks are still looking pretty bad. Iím going to try and start focusing on colour a lot more as well.
Did some pencil stuff today, not as much as Iíd like but Iím feeling a tiny bit more confident drawing figures. I did a photo study but Iím still struggling with colours and tried a self-portrait, I wanted to focus on lighting but it didnít really work and I donít think thereís much likeness either. I did try some imagination stuff in Photoshop along with a couple more studies and as a result Iím thinking that for the rest of the week Iím going to try focusing solely on painting, looking at colours, light etc. and see where that goes because all of those things are such massive weaknesses.
Not much so far todayÖ Did some crappy studies trying to go right back to the basics, looking at things like light. Iím hopefully going to have time to start a little still-life later; I need to stop putting it off if I want to actually get better.
nice you really see that the construction studies for the head really paid off
Every critique helps me to get on step closer towards my dream so feel free to
Grey_RiftĖ Thanks Itís nice to know that thereís some improvement, I thinks itís easier sometimes to just focus on all that I need to improve so I donít notice actual improvement. Haha. Thanks again
A study of a spoon, itís pretty bad but already looking at it I can see what I should have done differently so Iím definitely going to attempt another one tomorrow to see if Iíve really learnt anything.
Karl SchulschenkĖ Thank you!
Hello again! Not that good of an update. An unfinished, pretty embarrassing sketch and then a study that I started to try and work on skin tones since the sketch really showed me how bad I am at it. Iím hoping to do a bit more to it and hopefully bring it close to finish as it should help. And then a study I did of a knife I did some pencil stuff of clothing studies but Iím too lazy to scan. Very small steps but Iím looking forward to looking back on this when Iím hopefully better
Some studies and stuff from todayÖ
Thanks for stopping by my SB. Your work is really awesome. So detailed and seemingly effortless.
Hey, thanks for the comment I see a lot of hard working and frequent posting, so definitely keep it up. The lines and skin tones are looking good too, but I would suggest looking more into some basic head construction and placement of features etc. I see you already studied some head structure from Loomis, but it pays to be consistently revisiting all that stuff. Good progress so far!
Odd Berry CreationsĖ Thank you
JoeSĖ Thanks. I completely know what you mean! My faces often end up a bit wonky etc. I need to remember to keep taking it back to the basics to try and make things a bit more solid. Thanks again
Couldnít focus todayÖ everything looked rather terrible. As mentioned above, basic construction is something I need to look at so much moreÖ
Hello! I currently have no access to a scanner so here are some quick, messy studies done before bed.
Zauselbart Ė Thank you very much Iíll definitely check him out!
Hereís some of the stuff from today and yesterday, Iíve been primarily looking at the head at the moment. Thereís more but the scanner takes too long
Hello! Some of the stuff from todayÖ Still looking at the head a bit as Iím currently looking at it for college. And some other things including really bad Photoshop studies. Sorry for the photos itís just Iím too lazy to scan Thanks for looking
Just a tiny update, no time to scan things unfortunately. Iím still really uncomfortable with Photoshop but hopefully thatíll change over time.
