Sketchbook: mrdigs' sketchbook - Page 5
Thanks for the feedback CastorFiber - I've been trying to change the way I approach the digital stuff, it's making me notice all the gaps in my knowledge though !
I'll pop over and post a link to the Bumskee thread in your sketchbook.
A couple more perspective studies before I crash out, and a quick sketch from the train.
couple of wonky sketches from today.
more perspective and a quick sketch on the train.
Yet more perspective stuff, trying to get my head around where to place vanishing points and eye level.
playing with angles and cropping/zooming in, might stick to these thumbnails for a bit to get a feel for things.
and another sketch from commuter hell.
carrying on with perspective, trying different eye levels and vanishing points at different elevations.
yet more perspective ! trying shadows and projecting from a plan and elevation into a perspective view...the second house took forever because i got mad confused with the roof...gah.
trying to combine some of it...
badly coloured commuter sketch...
and a few more environment thumbs...gonna stop mucking about with these and try something a bit more finished soon...ish.
couple more, trying to dispense with the lineart.
i'm reworking the bathroom one because floor to ceiling urinals doesn't seem quite right...plus the shape is out and a tonne of other stuff, not to mention the lack of stains ! hah.
gonna start using ref for these, i tend to just use ref to paint from for standalone studies...so i'm gonna start bringing it in here and see if i can get some more believeable stuff going.
need to work zoomed in a bit more so things look ok without scaling down so much. hmph.
cardboard spraycan i made for a friends birthday, couple of commuter sketches and some skulls i tried to do from memory...
damn that's a nice ear you sculpted on page 4.
i really dig those perspective studies!
keep it up, you're going somewhere. :]
thanks for the encouragment a la bapsi, that ear took forever !
haven't had the most productive week this week but managed to get a few random bits done, and i started a new sketchbook too so that was cool.
more skull studies, last couple unreffed. trying some freehand perspective too.
couple of sketchs from this week, and some noses from ref.
sketches on the train...
and another skull.
life drawings from last night, i was struggling to whole time - gotta work on that stuff.
some sketches from today.
couple of quick studies, inspired by bumskee's environment studies...but sadly nowhere near as nice
trying to work zoomed out and speedy.
a few bits from this week.
Couple more on the train and some random faces.
I need to start drawing faster, or taking longer train journeys.
small update...sketch exploring a derelict building the other day, and another one from the train.
more perspective stuff, the first four are loosely ref'd, last one from imagination...damn i hate window frames.
some stuff from this afternoon...i'm slowly working my way through draw 50 cats ! by lee j ames. they're all coming out a bit wonky but i've had the book sitting around for ages and thought it was about time i worked through it.
a few faces too.
quicky of a hotel room, had to do it on tiny bits of paper so it's a bit of a mess...and another train journey.
Some quick skull studies from this morning, a wonky life drawing and something that was inspired by dsg1493 - satan's hamster, not sure if I'll colour it.
bits from today. i need to practice more of everything !
more random bits and bobs...the train sketches probably don't look like anything much but i can assure you they're bits of trains...honest.
