Subject title: Grass' Sketchbook

Hello everyone,

Well, I've been lurking in this forums for quiet some time and got
really motivated to make my own sketchbook here. So here it is!

I've been doing gestures for almost a week.
I don't know if I'm doing it right. Just saw people here doing
things like this. :lol: Still practicing gestures because
sometimes I look into the contours not in the flow.

Damn dude thats a lot of gestures! Very loose, and well done. Keep it up and welcome to the forums! Just draw lots and stay determined to keep improving. I can see thats youve already started to get better at gestures just from comparing the day 1 stuff to the day 6 stuff. Keep up the good work and im looking forward to seeing your art on here :D

Thank you Xiphor! Really appreciate it! :D
Drawing too many really gets boring sometimes but worth it.

Forgot to upload Day 7 gestures because too sleepy. :lol:
I'm using pixelovely's site for gesture references and
I tried class mode which is pretty nice.

This is an hour of class mode.
Need to practice anatomy and values because still suck at it :(
Might do that this week but for the mean time, I should sleep. :lol:

Hey man! It's so cool that you're doing so many gesture drawings!
I'd recommend you to check Michael Hampton's way of drawing gestures if you haven't yet:
https://issuu.com/leidianellady/docs/mi ... rawing_-_d
There's also some good anatomy knowledge in this book :D

Keep on posting more, and you'll see your progress soon!
I like to draw girls. If you like girls too, you should check my Sketchbook ^^
There's stuff on my Twitter and Instagram too.
I do streams sometimes, mostly weekends on my Picarto channel.

This is really helpful Koz! Thanks for this!
I just copy other sketchbooks here so there's that. :lol:
I'm not a book person but I'm going to read this for the sake of improving. :D
Thanks again.

Pretty hard when I started these, especially those boxes,
but quiet used to some bones now. Still needs more grinding. :lol:

I watched this video about master studies by Noah Bradley
and its really good. So I made a value study with a limit of 5 values.
4 is kind of hard for me so I stick to 5. Hopefully 4 to 3 values in the future.

Also I researched about value studies and stumble upon an online course in CGMA,
The Art of Color and Light, which is so expensive and can't afford it. So I just search
about people who studied it and just copy their homework. :twisted:

So here are the studies. Aaannd yeah, I just made an Assassin Gandalf. Requiescat in Pace :|

Man, looking at you deconstructing the face and body like this makes me really think I should do the same! It looks really helpful! Did you get to read any from that Michael Hampton book yet? I'm considering purchasing it!

Thanks Nuba! Yes. Hampton's book is really helpful, thanks to Koz for introducing it to me. :D But you can maximize it by having a good anatomy book like Goldfinger's which the one I'm currently using.
It's really a good book because you can view different skeletal and muscular structures in every angle. But it's your choice on whatever anatomy book will be perfect in your studies. :D

Also Koz gave me a link on it but having a physical book is much better than pdfs IMO. Really easy to study. :D

Thanks a lot, Grass!! I'll start reading it right now! As for anatomy books, I've heard an abundance of good things about Valerie Winslow's "Classic Human Anatomy" but I might check out Goldfinger's one too!

Still in lesson 1 because these drawings are really hard! :lol:

I really like the way these ones look! Did you know bluish shadows are really common out in nature? You should really consider using a warm light and cool shadows if you try to do some environment painting some time! As for the homework.. I really wanna do some CGMA courses myself but I'm too poor, just like you Y_Y

Yeah, I read or heard it somewhere. It is because of our bluish atmosphere. So In perspective, the more distant the more bluish it will be. Also, in environment paintings, solid black should be avoided at all cost and in some circumstances. Because a solid black is the cause of the absence of light. :lol: But the thing is, I'm too lazy to apply those knowledge. Stuck between trying harder or why bother. :| Oh well, I need to catch up. :lol: Also its not bad to be poor, let just be resourceful! :lol: :D :) :| :( :cry: I can cri now.

Been struggling in human anatomy. Dem muscle names so hard to pronounce and memorize.

Looking nice! Do you feel like you'll be able to apply these material studies to later work? Also, I'd worry more about learning the function and location of the muscles rather than their names. Sure, knowing the name of extensor digitorum longus and flexor carpi radialis (I know the names so allow me to show off, ok!? I feel like I have no other use for them....) could be useful from time to time but like I said, it's probably more important to know the function and shapes of the muscles!

Thanks nuba! :D Well I learned a lot of things in making those spheres specially using colors to make textures, subsurface scattering, how light affects the materials and so on. Hopefully I'll be able to apply it in some more studies in the future. As for the anatomy, I do study the functions and shape of the muscles. (The hardest for me are the arm muscles.) :| It helps me for some reasons. Maybe because I'm still studying anatomy. Memorizing the names helps me to be organize. Also I might forgot the names in the future because I'm bad at it. :lol:
