Sketchbook Thread of Jack Shannon

Well, I live in the Unitied Kingdom and I am fourteen years old. I really enjoy drawing and my grandpa is giving me some oils in two weeks time! I am so excited! Anyway, I started properly drawing at around christmas, sketching celebrities and portraits, but my interest has grown to the human figure.

Here are a few sketches I did a few weeks ago. Most are unfinished.




Studies from Loomis.




Drew these ones tonight. Just some figures out of my imagination, very quick.

Jack,

What a lot of talent you have, particularly for one so young! It's great to see your Anatomy Thread here, and I look forward to seeing your first oil studies! You already seem to have a great foundation, and it will be exciting to see your progress here on the forum!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Wow, what a fast reply!

Thankyou Rebecca, its really nice what you said, I am definatly going to the Michelangelo exibition in two weeks with my Grandad, can't wait! Do you have any ideas what could keep me busy drawing wise, I hate looking at blank paper

Oils should be good, my grandad is going to show me how to mix colours and about all the brushes!

I'll post photographs of my work as often as posible, hopefully every day.

Thanks Rebecca your words always boost my confidence,
Jack

Hi Jack,

I recommend purchasing either:

"Anatomy Lessons From The Great Masters", by Robert Beverly Hale and Terence Coyle - Watson Guptill, publisher

Or a few books from this inexpensive series:

Master Draughtsman Series of Paperback Books:
Great books because they are cheap, light, and great for copying from, as you will not be concerned about destroying the book ~ they are really instructional devices, more than anything else.

And doing Master Copies.

Check out Erich's Anatomy Thread:

Anatomy Thread of Erich Schreiner
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=297560

Where he did a number (I believe around 100) Master Studies over a set period of time. Some really nice results there!

For free Reference, check out artrenewal.org's website:

www.artrenewal.org

Which has a lot of images, most of which are hi~resolution. Bear in mind that the site is a bit slow to load and also has a poor navigation system, but the images are worth it.

Here is their search page:

http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/datab...au&fromform=yes

Looking forward to seeing more work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I have been thinking and thinking about what you could possibly mean by this and have come to the conclusion that you mean Dr. Bone's method which I rather clumsily tried to follow. Which leads me to believe you don't know his outstanding tutorial thread yet!

Check it out here by any means!

Jack,

I think this is a great start to the Harry Potter piece ~ perhaps later you can do the whole cast. As I mentioned earlier it might make it easier to start from a toned background, but I actually really like the way this looks, as it looks like a traditional watercolor, gouache, or lightly washed oil painting, which is really nice.

One artist you might enjoy checking out is Andrew Wyeth ~ just google him, and you will come up with his work, but this image, Christina's World, is one of his most famous pictures:



His model was one of his longtime neighbors, and his biography is pretty fascinating:

Andrew Wyeth : A Secret Life (Paperback) by Richard Meryman

It's not light reading, but enjoyable and interesting ~ Wyeth was not exactly a 'nice' person, in fact, he was incredibly eccentric and a bit off his rocker (I think he's still alive, in fact) but his artwork is amazing.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thanks a lot for dropping by lyneran. Your work is amazing and you keep improving. Keep it up.

Thanks a lot Rebecca I'll check that out. Lol! I doubt I will do whole cast, it was a bit tedius just doing harry rofl.

I have already failed my last nights resolution - to do at least one 15 minute sketchathon per day - because I didn't feel like rushing so i made this instead:


I am really pleased with it, learnt a lot and the strokes are smoother, its just a wip and im hoping to spend a long time on it.
