Sketchbook Thread of bumskee (22/06)

oo, hello everyone. I am starting this sketchbook to dig more into my figure skills!. This will be dedicated to figures/character design and won't bother with other little things I get upto in the dark. Crits and Comments are always welcome.

Will kick off with some scribbles from past week

What a coup! As you know, I am a big admirer of your artwork.

One thing I notice with respect to your figures is the ethereal elongation which you lend them. In some cases I think it works, and in other cases, for my personal taste, it goes just slightly too far for the figures to be totally believable. Having said that, your gestural experimentation is in some cases sublime, and I would love to see your further explorations of the sense of brushwork in your figures.

As well, you know I'd always be happy to see a Tutorial from you.

You call them "scribbles"? You should see my scribbles
Nice work!

How much time did you spend on each of them?
And how long have you been drawing?

Rebeccak, THanks!! yeah I do tend to stretch things out a little too far.. i think that's what u meant right? well still studying heaps and trying to get my figures right.. of course more dynamic poses.. body types...... bleh.. tooo much to study up. heh cheers, Min

erilaz, haha martin!! i bet you are doing ur 100 like crazy now. hehe cheers man

Cyanid, thanks!

razz, thanks mate

trainee, heh, well they are pretty sketchy..
about 1 hrish.. but some took longer like the last two.. a little more worked up I guess.
been drawing for sometime now.. cheers,

me, martine and knoxie decided to do 100 gestures.. yeah it was alright, I had a head start.. martin is still doing it now..hehe knoxie went to bed.. ha!
but's my 100.. took between 2~10 mins.. depending on poses.. some were harder and some were easy.. No refs just wanted to play around I guess. Tried some dynamic poses too, mixed up some male ones.. I usually do females.. heh.

saved at around 60% of the size I drew them in PS..

ooop sorry for the image size, cheers, Min

Wooah, that's the stuff I should do myself! A great practise. Lots and lots of gestures. Amazing poses, Bumskee. Inspired me a lot with these.

Glad to see you back with this new work. Would love to see more from you.

razz, there's gesture thunderdome happening in in thunderdome section if you want to jump in for weekly gestures. anyone that doesn't complete the task gets ugly avatar.. haha. cheers mate.

Small..update, I kinda feel like I been a moo moo land.. maybe it's coz I just woke up. haha.. ok.. some gestures.... well this was a little different..

I realised I wasn't pushing it enough.... this body type really had be bogged down... kinda annoyed at not being able to freely draw them, I decided to do some hogarth studies... still treating them as gestures, stick figures or whatever you want to call it... keeping it pretty simple..

Old 10 October 2006   #11
(too many images for one post?? bah...)

It's time to put them to use.. or I guess i was little bored with these studies... some character quickies... didn't feel like fantasy stuff.. more chicks!!
