Sketchbook Thread of JM-art

Hi everybody.

This will be my thread of anatomy.

I want to improve my skills in human anatomy-proportions-expresivity, and i want to use this year to do so. I hope to be constant and organized and make a huge step in this area betwen january 2008 and january 2009.

One of my goals is to show what i do and learn about how other people see it, so ill realy appreciate all the coments and critics you may give me, even the hardest words are
very welcome.

I know ill have a great time showing and sharing with you my draws and with the feedback, and hope you too.

Please forget my english!

....see you soon.

So ill begin from the beginning.

This are some exercises from the book of Andrew Loomis, "Fun with a pencil".

I know this is not 100% human anatomy, but this procedure and excercise is just the basis of the basis for the building of a head i think. For now all the heads looks cartoonish style, but since i like to make concepts characters with wicked proporcions and caricatures, i find this exercise very usefull....and yes fun, but with the tablet.

so, the six heads:

and the process:

Well i wanted to share this with you, in this case maybe more for the fun than for anything else.

more to come...

Hey there Jmart, welcome in the sketchbook area. Nice start, i was recently going to the same books and im still reading and learning from them, sometime its hard to memorize all that stuff and realise it on paper when you draw a sketch ^^ ... but i think Loomis books are a really big help, also check out the books of "Burne Hogarth" and "Glenn Villpu".

And use a traditional medias as often as possible, specially in the beginning

Here are some advances.

Hi Rebeccak, i was waiting for your advise (and from the others users too of course), so thanks for posting and for the welcome. Ill try to do at least 10 heads and 10 torsos in the next weeks, and continue with the gestures scketches and figures from boxes and circles too(they are so interesting and funny to do!). My main concern for the moment is to learn the proportions of the human body, and have the ability to draw from imagination this proportions in any pose, and in any perspective. I found that learning the human anatomy is a must in the 2d/3d area, and a very very stimulating and interesting task by the way.

Im very happy for participate in this forum and in this threads. This is a great place for learn......and for get inspiration!

See you soon.

Nice going. Here's a few tip from me, when you shade, try to imagine sculpting the surface. For pencils, of course you start from light to dark, so it's like as you "sculpt" your way to the dark, the surface gets deeper.

It'll be fine to use a mid tone paper too so that you can push highlights easily.

Keep it up!

Hi there, i made this based on the concept "medieval battle" and i would like to hear your opinion about the composition and the perspective/proportions of the warriors and the environment. Do you find this image interesting or boring? do you think thas is dinamic or static?....Ill appreciate any sugestion and critic not only about the technical issues....your most subjectives thoughts about the image are what im interested too.

See you.
