View Full Version : Sketchbook Thread of Azabache
05 May 2006, 08:51 PM
Hi, my name is Carlos, I'm living in the UK but I'am actually spanish.
I draw since I can remember, but recently I began to use the computer to draw. This transition has been a little frustrating but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it! :bounce:
Well here is some of the anatomy sketches I did today.
That's it for today!!

Welcome aboard! :)
It's great to see your Anatomy Thread go up. Are you currently an art student, or have you been? :) It would also help me to know how much Photoshop experience you have, from an image editing point of view.
I like your first set of 2/5/10 minute studies especially. Definitely keep doing those!
I know I posted this link earlier, but here it is again just in case:

Definitely looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Hello Rebecca, thanks for your comments!
Yes, my A-levels were based on arts. It was oriented for architecture and fine arts, but I wanted to go to comics!! :buttrock:
Since there wasn't a course for comics back then I became a "rebel student" and didn't go further on my education. :shrug: I continued drawing, as a hobbie.
As for Photoshop, I took a small course about it but didn't help me much, I only know the basic. The sketches were done in Corel Painter. :)

Before getting back to the 2-5-10 sketches, here is some studies of my own. Maybe this method could be useful too for those who are still trying to figure out where are the muscles in the body.
From photo reference, I did quick sketches of the figures.
Then, applied the muscles where I think they are (I didn't use any anatomy book or reference for that - maybe I should have :D)
It's funny to try to figure out the muscles because in the photos they have clothes on.
I'll clean the drawings and do some lighting/shadows studies. :)

Some really nice figure drawings here, Azabache. Keep up the good work, I'd like to see more! I like the play with the perspective in the lower right corner of the last page, good going!
best of luck,

I agree with razz, there's a lot of good stuff happening here. :) Feel free to use as much Reference from the 15 Min. Sketch Ref thread and as many other sources as you can. Apart from Master Copies (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=354836), I also encourage you to draw from Life as well as from Reference.
Great reference and resources can be found here:

This is not an anatomy sketch but it started as one! I was making the face of an ork, and ended like this. Hope you enjoy it. :)

Hope you don't mind, I did a bit of a paintover for your orc piece, hope it helps! Mainly I think you might try to use less saturated colors and to give him a bit more menace:

Thanks a lot for the reply Rebecca!! :)
About the face I kind of liked the neutral face of the ork... because he has a history a little diferent of the other orks (I'am doing a fantasy story).
I'll do another painting showing him more menacing. :twisted:
