First post here on 06 - 29 - 2006
Welcome to my anatomy and general sketchbook thread.

Thanks to Rebecca Kimmel who kindly created this space, CG talk / CG Society team.
Rebecca has being so supportive to me as well to all members of this awesome forum.

I intend to study drawing for all my existence, it’s something that never ends for a human life.

This is not a portfolio, it is intended to be a general sketchbook where I share of everything specially my mistakes, difficulties and doubts, to learn and grow up here along with this community, and I hope it can be useful to others in someway.

Now I am doing a lot of drawings, paintings and studies almost everyday and will post whenever my busy time allows me to scan or post here.

Thanks for passing by and don’t hesitate to make critics and commentaries.

Djampa,

Welcome! :) Nice to see your thread up, and I look forward to seeing a lot of work here! :thumbsup:

The character design is lovely ~ the main thing I would recommend is to give a broader range of values, from nearly pure black to nearly pure white (being sparing in each, but nevertheless representing the full range).

Great to see you in the Portrait thread!

Cheers, :)

Hi there Rebbeca,

:) Glad you posted.

the main thing I would recommend is to give a broader range of values, from nearly pure black to nearly pure white (being sparing in each, but nevertheless representing the full range).

That´s true... almost all artists around me say the same, I have to pay more attention to that, now that you said it keeps banging my mind onto it *lol* :banghead:
I need to find the right ´hand´, seems I´m afraid to high contrasts.
I love doing lights and shadows with pastels against black paper, they look better, now I realize why *lol*.


Finished my first head now, will post in a min, rushing here. ;)

Cya, thanks !

Here is my first head for the '50 head in a month'.
Done with Alias Sketchbook Pro, tools - Pencil and Airbrush.
Took 3 hours on that, more than I imagined, was hard to get there, I still feel something is out of proportion.
I changed the clothes folding to play around with it a bit, as well the cap.

Djampa - I really like how you paint cloth - esp. on the first guy! the only thing that's bothering me is how 'smudged' they feel.. I think too much so other than that they're great.

I shouldn't actually be criticizing other people's 2d work because I am sooooo bad at painting LOL

Keep it up:thumbsup:

Hi Magdalena,


Thanks for posting :)
Thanks for the smudge comment, it´s true, and you don´t need to be a painter to make crits on how you feel about paintings, same way we don´t need to be 3D experts to feel something is wrong with 3D and make a crit, specially anatomy crits. And I´m here to hear and learn.
It´s getting too smudged really, basically I use the airbrush and pencil tools, maybe if I get a try on paint tools it get less smudged.

:) It´s good to have have great and nice people like you around us here !

The original painting was done at a time that they used to paint the same way as they sculpt, they try to make the painting similar to the sculpts in presentation.
So I tried a 'convertion' to a sculpt-like. This guy was a Vennice regent, extraordinary clothes, will try a full color render one of it one day.
And yes, I changed his sight direction.

Again Sketchbook Pro, 2B and Airbrush. Photoshop C2 for the fine tunning.

I missed the eye proportions, oops, no Ctrl-Z.
Rebecca did a great paint over to show it up. (see on the next post here)
I decided to leave this wrong version here so it may help others not make the same mistake, but will post, after the Head 50, corrected versions of my wrong heads.

Djampa,

I did a paintover which I hope helps. :) I think mainly a thing to try is to block in the contour of the form using straight lines, to just establish the major planes of the face and head. Also be aware of the axes of the major features of the eyes, nose, lips, chin, and ears. These horizontal axes will all be parallel to one another, no matter what the view or perspective:

Reference 096: (http://anatomy.cgnetworks.com/00_Anatomy%20Lesson%20Series/Web%20Gallery%20of%20Art%20Images/096.jpg)



http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b380/rebeccak5/00_Anatomy%20Lesson%20Series/Djampa_Rev-01.gif

Also look at the negative shapes of the major features. This can be a highly useful double~check when blocking in the contour. :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak





Thank you a lot Rebecca ! :D

The one below I was missing doing some digital work, I enjoyed it a lot and did some play around with the original, thicker lips, slight smaller chin, gave him a fur coat and so on.
That changes made him look more feminine, specially raising the cheeckbones.

Thank you Rebecca, I´m posting now all my work there is currently at the Anatomy Lessons Thread, as you asked us to do.
Great to have a Master like you and Master Michaelis Mentler around as well Master Siju Thomas, masters at such level are not found easy, even more online and disposed to help others to improve. Reason is they usually are too busy all the time, so I will all times bow here to you and I´m interested in keeping a commitment with this forum and not loose such rare opportunity.

moving ahead here :)

Durer is just great... more I study his art more I like it.

Now Head 09
I thought I would become faster now, so I decided doing only fast sketches... but I just can´t... *lol*.
This time I tried copying the background from the original.
So I used the Clone Stamp Tool and the Healing Tool from the original, then used a little bit of Dodge Tool. (background only)
Started doing a very fast sketch on paper, actually two, then went to the Wacom, btw I use an Intuos 3 - 9x12, using the Sketchbook Pro.
Took me 10 minutes in each paper sketches and 15 minutes at sketchbook pro(using there the pencil and airbrush tools).
Background I did in 5 minutes. (photoshop)
After that added the background I made on Photoshop CS2 on layer bellow, and started highlighting it and working with contrasts with the airbrush, to finish I just got back to photoshop to crop and re-size since I work the originals at 1280 pixels w.(at least)
That stage took me 40 minutes, so I consider this an hour and 20 minutes work.

In resume - Wacom Intuos 3 A4 - Sketchbookpro - Photoshop CS2 - 1h 20min.

Number 11 - very fast sketch around 20 minutes 4B pencil only, white A4 paper.
Same goes for heads 12 & 13 - around 10 minutes on head 12 and 15 min on head 13.
All scanned into Photoshop CS2 for quick crop, some contrast adjust trying to reach my ´real´ pencil ranges, I noticed sometimes I scan it never come up with the exact ranges as the original.

These I did using 4B pencil on white paper, and gave a 0.3 mm finish using a Vario tk fine.
Tried to go fast as possible, heads 14 & 15 took about 20 minutes each, took into Photoshop and added a background in gray-scale, and head 16 took about 45 minutes, unfortunately the scanner didn´t grab all the mid-tones I did to it, and the Photoshop contrast correction went out that way, I didn´t like this way.

hey,
you did a lot of heads for today hehe.
i especially like your sketchbook pro work(head 007) is great because it has some really great values.

i tried doing the same thing in sketchbook(pencil and airbrush) before seeing your thread, but mine came out all crappy and flat, i cant get forming shapes with values properly. but this is only my 5th day drawing or so. especially that i got my Wacom last week.

im gonna keep an eye on this thread.
take care.
Stan.

Djampa
07-21-2006, 06:31 PM
Hi Stan, thanks :)


I should edit the posts here with the date I made them, I just copied them and edited the texts a little, from the Anatomy Lessons Thread, so I made the heads in different days, actually I am very much back from the point where I should be.
I took long to get used to that values on Sketchbook, if you look at my first post here, Atsong, you see it has poor values.
The trick is set the Wacom pen sensibility at a higher level and control the airbrush flow in Sketchbook, then I change the color from white to pure black to block the values also controlling the pressure strokes, takes some time but when you get it ... it´s fun. :D
Enjoy !

Best wishes.

Awwww, I don't think I'm a master by any means, but thank you very much for the compliment. :) It is great, however, to see more and more artists joining in and the quality of everyone's work, including my own, I hope, is getting higher. That's great to see! :)

Hi Djampa :)


Popped in to see your thread, and say hi... seen your work on the 50 heads and being a new memeber I am having a ball browsing through this great forum... Like you, I work mainly in 2D and totally traditional at this stage (meaning my digital skills are non-existant :D) it's awesome though and I love looking at everyone's work :) Durer was great to tackle and you did a great job esp with the "Apostle looking Upward" :thumbsup:

I had my 6 year-old involved in "AhhBrekt Doorer" ;) too, doing about 20 drawings of the "Self Portrait in Fur collared Robe" Heaps fun :)

Keep up the great work and looking forward to see more :)
cheers a. :)

Updated news:

Hi there, it's April 2007.
Doing some tv ads as 3D and VFX director now, as well some other freelance jobs in CG this time. So I'm quite busy. (this is no news *lol* And since I'm not yet a superman in CG like the super Rebecca K. I'm slow in posting and uploading artwork here)

-- My short movie Tapp & Tupp : had to be postponed, I'll take it back in September only due to my load of work and studies at the moment. It's a complex short with a lot of hair, water, VFX, hundreds of props and it's over 5 Min's, so it seems a never-ending work, but I know it will pay off ! --

Also doing 1 year Sketch and Concept Design at Melies (http://www.melies.com.br/cursos/curso_sketch.php) with Diego Maia (http://diegomaia.cgsociety.org/gallery/480398) (or click here for his website (http://maia3d.blogspot.com/)). Where I'm studying a lot of anatomy, and all times I come back to make heads, necks, torso, and so on, more I know that I don't know nothing... I'll be putting some of this work here from now on to share.

As well I'm getting back now to digital sculpture (http://www.melies.com.br/cursos/curso_fontainedigital.php) in Zbrush 3.0 with Alex Oliver (http://alexoliver.blogspot.com/) (Alexandre Oliveira (http://www.melies.com.br/professores/alex_oliver.php) - nice gallery here), part of Fontaine course (http://www.melies.com.br/cursos/curso_fontainecompleto.php), lots of Artistic Anatomy there too... and from this one you can wait for my next posts on CGTalk ;)

From the older official Anatomy threads I had to change FTP servers few times and there's still lot to upload and fix from the 50 heads and 50 torsos. I have to find them out here on paper and some HDs.. *lol*

Down here is the old "Atsong" concept sketch, done almost one year ago. My wish is to accomplish my Concept Design studies and remake it, taking it to a finished illustration fully painted by the end of this year. Then I will leave this here with the final version when done so you can check out some (possible) progress in my skills, or point out where I can still improve.

Thanks for looking at, please post your comments and critics.

Oh, was almost forgetting, my current major study books on Anatomy are mostly Burne Hogarth (all of his books) and Sarah Simblet's Anatomy for the Artist, I always check on other books but these are the most important for me at this moment.

______________________________________
First post here in 6/29/2006:

I´m in. :)

Hi people !

Best wishes to all !

Will be slow in updates here while finishing my CG Short now. Be patient. ;)

http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e259/SculpMan/Atsong/Atsong_108_medsize.jpg

This is a concept design actually, will be posting in 2D Wip soon.
Here I had to study a lot of anatomy to get the right mood and the right posture to fulfill the concept requests. Will add here a link later to this post when WIP in 2D forum, there will add more details about the concept itself.
Done in sketchbook pro - 2 hours straight.
3 days of research for the concept.
Sketchbook Pro tools - 2B pencil and airbrush only.

Ok, I got into the 50 heads 1 in month now... rsrr full of work... no time at all but took the challenge :) and I´m happy, will sleep less, eat less, but learn more, much more.
and thanks Rebecca for that ! :)

My last studies on anatomy I´ve been using the Anatomy for the Artist from Sarah Simblet and working with all it´s references trying to make my best in the shortest time.
Also doing twice a week live model classes of 2 hours, doing fast drawing from 10 secs to 10 minutes poses. Some of them are light and shadows study drawing white on black paper A4 size.
This last one I love most, I generally perceive form better from light and my work comes out better with that.

Please guys and girls kick me here, punch me on my ego, and let me learn ! all C&C very welcome.
Thnks once more !

Fast Sketches...

All done with 6B and or 8B pencils over white paper. Most of them on A4 few on A3.
Midtones are not too much clear on my scans, if someone has a nice tip about it I thank you very much.
I had to correct some levels, and work a bit on contrast.

I made tons of structure drawings, not much time to scan them out now. I will try to make regular week scans so I can make more posts.

Intervain, Magdalena - Oh dear ! :) Thanks for passing by.
Now I will keep this updated :) It's been so cool to follow up your sketchbook, keep it up.

Alexander - Hey man... take care, I had to meditate more today to kick my ego away... *lol* Glad you liked my studies here, I think I'm on the right path and I have toooo much to learn and practice before my pieces get really 'great'. But anyway you made me happy today, thanks!
I'm looking forward to see your new paintings :) and new 3D pieces, it's very exciting to follow up your insane artworks productions :scream:

Here are 2 pieces from march. (just to mention, I'm producing a lot of drawings, just scanning a few to share here, I'm increasing the amount and speed of drawing every week, and hope to fill pages and pages of drawings every week that's the only way to get somewhere on this field...)

May 19 2007 - Two days ago I got my Zbrush 3.0 :scream: It's really much better than version 2.5
Now just exploring a lot it's possibilities, as soon as possible I will be posting some anatomy studies done with it.

Still doing a lot of business around here and trying to understand some artistic anatomy.

Some fast sketches done this month:

I did this study from a Hening Ludvigsen (http://www.henningludvigsen.com/) illustration, he's a very inspiring artist.
Didn't pay much attention to the head and it came out flat, Diego Maia's corrected lines are shown at the right side.

I believe it was Loomis who said that if we don't learn the proportions before the musculature , we are carrying water to the sea (or something alike)

these exercises are a great thing to see for me at this very moment, where I'm making my first steps in drawing the figure (iso the head).

Great to see all your hard work Djampa. It's really motivating.
Thanks for sharing

Hi :)

Good to see your updates! These body studies are coming along nicely :thumbsup: I like the charcoal ones (assuming that they are charcoal...? ) nice play with both shading and some distortion.

I like your work on the heads (but you know that already :) )

Just one small comment... in some of the face studies you seem to be shortening the chin area, making the lower part of the head seem a little out of proportion.

The multitude of studies you're doing is paying off & I wish you luck with your continued work :)

Take care and cheers

Hey Eduardo. Nice studies all around. Do get to know those bones and muscles well, it does help. No guessing when drawing, feels great :D
About filling pages and pages of stuff, remember that it's not the quantity, but quality that matters. Don't rush on anything just fill 5 or so pages a day. For example, today I didn't fill even one page, but I have learned lots of muscles of the leg. It wouldn't have helped better if I had filled many pages of leg drawing without understanding the bones and muscles. At least for me.
Keep up the good work :thumbsup:

Razz Thanks for the wise advice here, you are totally right, I was just in a time to train on speed, but I find out that with a weak base won't help much to rush, now I'm dedicating more time on muscle studies. The course here already moved up here to another level and we are practicing line of actions and poses but we still keep going all the year with body anatomy studies, actually I will get that forever to my life I think *lol* (I got in love with that). Thanks once more and keep in touch

Roja :

Draw well? No, I just knew how to COPY well, this is something lots of people mistakes, I can look at you or a masterpiece and try my best to copy it, it really improved my skills by doing so, specially on digital painting since I have an oil painting background.
( I will post some of my oil paintings one day around here )

When I used to deliver an original drawing I had to search hundreds of references and at the end it was nothing more than a blend of such references into a new creation, lots of 'copies' inside something new.
It is very different when you KNOW HOW to draw effectively, I stopped 'eye' copying this year and went into the foundations of drawing, now my lines seems poor to me but I depend less on reference to create something new. Reference are becoming only references *lol* not copy sources if you understand me.

And its a great pleasure to be more free to draw, if I have to do a copy now, I start with the foundations not only my eye/hands coordination, you can see here on my posts one masterpiece copy I did last year and Rebecca's animated gif correction, it shows perfectly how few of foundation I knew at that time. I always scan some of my known mistakes here, after all how can I help around just showing what's right ? Also other 'unknown' mistakes are always pointed out by someone and get improvements there.
My new heads are still off and maybe.... hopefully will be better with time.

The coolest thing on this forum is that we can share such things and people who are starting, or those who are just afraid to start to draw, can just read it and be motivated and jump ahead on the process by looking at our experiences and also learning from it.

Frejasphere:

Hi there! Nice to have your feedback
Yep... my heads are off... :hmm:
I continue my work everyday, although not much time to stop and scan lately.
Thanks. Good luck to you too ! :) Your artwork studies are also paying off as I see on your thread.

gahpe... Pereira !! *lol* Hey buddy ! Thanks for your words, welcome to the threads. :)
Wish we could bring all the guys from Melies here with us. Nice to see your drawings all together on a place. Much easier to follow up.

Kitami - Thanks, the last ones are studies I did from Al Rio drawings, he is a big name at Marvel and taught a lot of good teachers like Diego Maia and Alex Oliver. He is living in Brazil but still working for US comic books. I always liked to show expressions on characters, it's fun. Nice to see your thread too ;)

Diego - Oh... don't blame my teacher for such poor drawings... *lol*
I should work harder on that. :rolleyes:
Hey teacher :D, thanks for passing by.
Thanks for your dedication and patience (and Walfrido's) in teaching.
You should have a thread here, I know you are with your time worst than mine
but even then... just to have a few of your studies around would be great.
Specially to share with Rebecca and other anatomy teachers.
You, Alex O. and Walfrido are very welcome and would be of great inspiration to
a lot of people here. :arteest:

I'm back...

2008 was the year of business for me, meetings, meetings and more meetings, few nice contracts and that's it.
More and more I am moving to my artist soul, my passion, I will definitively will look for developing higher skills next year and try to work directly with it somehow.

I am persistent and keep drawing, at least trying to do so, so here it goes some of the few selected sketches I did this year, and some news... paintings... yeah... I'm putting my wacom, some ink, watercolors, pastels, oils to work again...

Will start here posting some cartoons, all this are studies guided by Diego Maya at Melies School of Animation and Film, most of them were made from August to November 2008

This two were done as an exercise without any reference at all, in class, just a check.
The girl is elongated on purpose, I'm playing a bit with styles.

I will make it more ´fluid´someday, I think it needs a larger neck and smaller shoulders to form a ´drop shape´ with the body. Suggestions are very welcome.

Alex Ross study

from wonder woman, her mother.

An important thing to me since I got here and decided to deepen my studies on drawing, is that I can draw now in a different way than before, now I can ´read´ the figure as before but execute the work with some choices on how to do it, almost everything here after the 50 heads in a month till now was done by first ´structuring´ the drawing, thinking of structure, anatomy, light and shadows, and so on.

Before I didn't use structure to draw or paint by observation, although I liked the results it was completely limiting for me since I wanted to create my own artwork out from my imagination, but I wanted to make it from solid academic base, I have a lot to study and practice yet but I'm happy to be on this path now.

Here you can see a thumbnail along with the sketch, basically I'm copying but keeping the same structure principles.

Alex Ross study

Superman´s ´earth father´.

This one I took much more care to execute.

I did using graphite - B (0,3mm - TK Fine Vario (http://www.cultpens.com/acatalog/Faber-Castell_TK_Fine_Vario_Pencil.html) Pencil - it has special feature to work in a ´hard´ and ´soft´ modes), 4B,6B,9B Cretacolor pencils, monolith and 5,6 mm lead, and for the darkest tones I used the ´ Nero ´ extrasoft from Cretacolor, this is nice to know about, it is a charcoal, but compressed and mixed with natural oils and wax, what makes it waterproof, nice to stick on paper, not reflective as graphite (it is charcoal) and doesn't blur easily, it is like having a superblack graphite, a charcoal that doesn't messes when in contact with other materials.

If I had more time when I did this one I'd better ´sculpt´ the skin with a broad range of light and shadows values as well using a blending tool, that would make a lot of difference.

Digital Painting Study - Davvy Jones.

References directly from the movie and from the Disney's book - The Art of Pirates of Caribbean.

This piece was produced when doing the Crayon, digital painting course at Melies School of Film and Animation, Andre Pereira (andreilustra) (http://andreilustra.cgsociety.org/gallery/695495/) teachings and tips really made a difference for me in digital painting, I can bring up my traditional school of painting to the digital now without much complication.

I allowed myself to explore a lot on this piece, I loved doing the Cirripedia Thoracica (Crustacea: Thecostraca) (link) (http://tolweb.org/Cirripedia/8127) all over his hat. Did that by using only the burn and dodge tool over the painted surface.

For the general piece the reference was straight from the movie, for the eyes I based on the reference from the mentioned book and followed a little bit of the Linda Bergkvist way to paint eyes.

Here goes the WIP - This is a Gif file, a large one, so if it is not showing up wait a lil or reload this page.

As you may notice I didn't follow a nice work-flow as it could be, at least not for me, I really wasn't much worried about the work-flow on this piece but just enjoyed the process of painting.

Time - 6hrs (not continuous)

Hi Djampa :)

Great to see you back posting - and with the determination to focus on your art soul
I think you are on a great path! Keep drawing and enjoying and posting.

Enjoyed seeing your painting WIP - thanks for posting that

With your character studies, I like the ones where you've added contrast to emphasize
a particular part of the drawing. The eyes in your martian manhunter add life to a subtle sketch. In terms of adding a sense of volume and movement to your characters, you might find it helpful to play around with variations in line-thickness.

keep them coming and welcome back :)

Ok, here it goes something else,

This is the final project I chose at last year Sketch & Concept course along with Diego Maya.

I chose to make a character concept based on Lo Pan from the movie Big Trouble Little China.

For such project I've went for some references into an old 'Manga cartoon' movie I liked so much at my teen age called " Kujaku ", the first movie of the series bring a sorcerer demon which uses the tantric systems in a perverted way.

I crossed real Tibetan Buddhist references with real japanese Buddhism, many shaman sources, Japanese Shinto, and a lot of diverse references, a lot of demons and vampires make part of these references.

The image below is my first sketch, after doing the thumbnail silhouette (still looking for where I left if *lol*).

To realize the final concept I chose to use a heavy A3 size paper (300g) suitable for wet techniques and at the same time with an ultra soft and very white texture.
Unfortunately the scanner can't show all the effects I got by result, but I ensure I got what I was expecting.

The materials - pencils - from 2h to 9b, graphite powder, water, brushes , blending
http://www.cretacolor.com/kuenstler/pics/null.gif
sticks, charcoal, Nero (Cretacolor special charcoal pencil with oils and wax)

By this moment the final piece is being 'fixed', so I consider I took it back to WIP, after some anatomy and figurative art teachers comments I decided to fix it and make deeper details, the hands are unfinished at the following posts.
The following posts are fragment scans of the final piece which I'll post when finished. I intend to take it to digital painting someday soon, where I'll be able to explore it even deeper.

I got a nice concept storyline and profile but no title for the creature yet.

Please make any C&C, since it's a WIP I still can improve it.

Thanks everybody,

Here it goes the first sketch: (A4 - regular 75g paper)

Hey Djampa!
Nice concept :)

If you want the main focal point to be the face (or the hands), I would suggest increasing the contrast in that area.

Hi Djampa :)

Look forward to see where you take this one. I'd agree with Johan that you
may find more contrast in his face and hands will guide the eye and tell the story :)
Find the lightest point & the darkest point (is the light coming from behind or
in front...) Where will the light fall on his clothes, face & shiny? helmet...
I find that sometimes asking myself those sorts of questions (especially when working
from imagination or mixed refs) can help decide where to emphasize certain values. Don't be afraid to use the 9B :)
I know it's still early days, so keep posting :wip: ;)

hope all is well & happy your end

cheers

Thanks Annette,

I'll be posting the update, I think I'll increase the darkness of the background around his head and increase the lightning effect over his face, this may work hopefully. :)

thanks for the support,

see you,

Rough Sketch for CGSociety CGWorkshop Modern Game Character Development with Jonathan Rush :)
This is a recreation of Captain Goodnight, and old Apple ][ game hero, references I´m working on are from Jay Leno :D He has a pretty big chin that resembles original Goodnight Concept.

I'm still around here, now I'm directing marketing department at Zupi International Art Magazine. Pretty cool company, nice job.
Also running Dr. Sketchy live model sessions in São Paulo and neighbor cities.

Altough I never stop to sketch, draw, paint both trad and digital, as well sometimes a little Zbrush and other 3D modeling, I take some long gaps between my posts, so I'm sorry if I'm not posting much lately here or commenting everyone else's works as usual, you all guys doing great around here, I love to see progresses as well learn with flaws and weeknesses as well, but mostly I find the posts here at the personal threads to be the most encouraging and inspiring sources.

I wish everyone a happy new year and the best in 2010.

Cheers all,
