Dile - thanks man.... glad you like the sketches!
i hope to have a lot more head and general anatomy sketches(with reference this time!) posted in the coming weeks - I recently bought a good anatomy book and plan on really practicing.... I have been really inspired lately by all the great stuff posted on this website!
haha skipping meals won't happen I still live with my parrents! but still they are expencieve and I also need to save money for girlfriend gifts and vacation and stuff..
ok I will try the next environment/robot something DSG and if I like the outcome I will make a photo of it
If I pass my exams I will go and study Industrial Design my self next year! I am really exitted about it! but first I need to get those exams done!
About the tank study do you use refferences or just out of your head?
Thanks for your awnsers they will help me I hope!
great stuff here, I really like your vehical concepts =)
Kei-th - I look forward to seeing your DSG!
regarding the tank study - typically i will not use reference for the first few studies...sometimes when trying to design something "new" reference material only hampers the creative flow - but later on I will absolutley use refrence to figure out the details once I get close to the form and proportion that I like.
Kasama - thanks!
ok thanks for explaining!
will speak to you soon probably, if something isn't working for me
another round of male head studies -
1 hour - black prisma color pencil and green marker
this time I somewhat used reference - I looked at my last male head study and picked the ones I thought looked the best, then I tried to derive what they had in common.... then I cracked open my new anatomy book and did some cross referencing and tried to note what i was doing incorrectly.....then lastly I closed up the anatomy book, eat dinner, then drew this page!
I think it's coming along, but I still feel like there are some real gaps in my knowledge of the male head.... practice, practice!!
setmonkey - huge thanks!
That's awesome you're also working on your anatomy! I have seen your perspective stuff really improve over just the last week or two.... I can't wait to see you jump into doing some figure drawings!! you also keep me inspired!
Kei-th - no worries, I will help you were I can....the most important thing though is just practice!
nice study! when I try sketching or drawing a head it always end un as a comic head
but maybe try to make your faces more solid. they look abit bloked. maybe it will help

Kei-th - thanks for the thought, "try to make your faces more solid. they look a bit bloked" - I am sure what you mean....could you explain a little further??
I mean some parts have really angels in stead of curves
I just cirkeled a few things with red that are really bloked and the greens are nice solid!
hope you don't feel offended by this
and yeah I know I wouldn't do it anny beter but I hope you don't mind that
Oh and don't forget they are really good but just sharing my thoughts
Kei-th - thanks for the expination!
I am definately not offended...I appriciate your thoughts!
now that i better understand what you meant - I agree the heads are very angular, but my current focus is on proportions, not concerned about portraying realistic or stylistic heads right now - hopefully that will come later!!

Rob-ot I am glad to hear that!
And I understand what you mean with the proportions. I think if you keep practicing it will be good in the near future!
nice again rob-ot, but this time, compare the heads to the body size, and you will
see that they are a bit to big, you know generaly it should be 4 heads down to where the legs started, at the crunch point, at your newest sketches there are
about 3 heads down.. but I shouldnt complain, its great anyways
keep it up!
yeah.... i wanna see something i havent seen before. nice tank tho.
Kie-th - thanks, I hope your right...just gtta keep up the practice!
Dile - good call on the head/torso ration! I have to admit I knew they seemed big, but wasn't sure how to fix it....I will try to incorporate the 4 heads you mention in my next study!
Orozc0 - thanks I guess..... not sure, I could draw something you haven't seen before - I stopped by your sketch book and you look quite good, and quite prolific.....Love the way your images bleed into each other!
hey rob-ot I was just trying a precious DSG the loader and truck one
but I really found that I have a huge problem I can't catch an angle my drawings always turn in to 2d like just a front view or something.. So if you make a vechicle do you use vp's? because I didn't and my loader looks like a broken loader :p realy not in a normaly shape..
I also tried to make a few cubes with vp's and I think it's going beter but still I have some troubles on my mind.. I tried to make a photo of the skecthes and the kubes but that wasn't going to work out.
So I decided to get a scanner asap and maybe I can buy one from a firend for a litle amout of money! So maybe I have one tomorrow!
Kei-th - I hope this help you its a very rough visual explination of how i typically build vehicles in perspective.... I really would recommend books on the subject which will undoubtly better explain persective to you....

thanks! what you explained I found out myself when I was trying to draw my cubes!
But the wheels I don't really understand I mean how do you get that side view acctually in the perspective drawing.. Also the wheel placement I can't see it in the close-up
The truck see pritty understand able. But how do you say I make the pink box that way and not in another... Do you use vp's for that?
When I get home from school I will study this an other time may be I understand beter!
sharpie and green marker - 2hrs
Kei-th - sorry its a little confusing.... I think a book on perspective might really be able to help you better, it can get complicated to do it all 100% accurately....and to scale.
The easiest way to do wheeles is start with a big box then place 4 boxes inside of that for the wheels - if the boxes look correct when you place you wheel within them they should aslo look correct.
the pink box - I also used VPs for that...they are just so far off of the page that the lines going to them almost seem parralel...
DSG 1034 -
5 minutes - pen, whiteout, and marker
wow man that stuff is sick
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
rob-ot nice female heads! It really looks like GTA vice city style, hope you are not offended.. The mid right face is a bit out os proportions I think it's a bit fat. I like the colored body alot!
When I have some more time I will go to a libarrary (spelling?) and get some perspective books if they have them.
And for the pink box when you draw them do you really use a VP or do you say some where around there would be the vp so these lines would go almost parralel?
As I said in the DSG 1034, I like it
kei-th - thanks! and as always, i'm not offended!
for something like the pink box - i typically estimate where the VP would be!
ah ok I see so you just draw with the knowlege of your experience?
tomorrow I will have my scanner so I can show you my perspective try's!
glad you aren't offened
Kei-th - when i am sketching, yes I just use my experience... when I need to do a very finished piece I will take the time to really measure everything out in perspective using rulers and VPs - this can be very time consuming, but well worth it in the end!
Glad to hear your getting a scanner - I look forward to seeing your perspective sketches!
Ah ok so the rough sketches will be with experience and the final piece with rulers and VP's? I think I get it
don't expect to much of the sketches first time doing them..
