Sketchbook Thread of Sirron

Since I wanted to join in on the CGTalk Anatomy Lesson Series - The Head I might as well start an anatomy thread here too.

I do have an old sketchbook thread at ConceptArt.org if you want to check that out too. I haven't been as diligent updating it. Probably because I've been spending more time here at CGTalk. Time to renew my efforts here.

I'll be mainly using OpenCanvas because I just love being able to playback the WIP. I just wish it's more widely used, it's mainly used in Japan. I also have openCanvas 1.1 that has the ability to network multiple people to work on the same canvas. If you're up for it send me a PM

I'll also upload clips of the playback so you can comment on my technique as well.

My art background:
Seriously started drawing senior year of high school (when I was 18 yrs old). Took all figure drawing classes at my community college instructed by Ron Brown. Great teacher, great guy. My main focus is animation (3D or Traditional). Main goal is to be involved in creating characters, from concept to animation.

Some anatomy/figure studies from my sketchbook awhile back.




I have a lot of other sketches but don't particularly contain anatomy studies. (Click on thumbnail)

I know I can do better, but I feel pretty tired of doing this one. Better get through these faster if I want to make the 50 lol.

SirRon,

Great to see all of your work here! I like the energy you've invested in your sketchbook studies, it's something I'd like to see more of!

With respect to the head studies, one recommendation I might have is to really break things down in terms of an analysis of the planes of the head. Really try to analyze the heads vs. copying them ~ there is a big difference between them, and analysis will always yield more in terms of an understanding of the forms you are endeavoring to understand by drawing them.

You might want to take a look at this Tutorial which shows some step by steps in terms of breaking down a form in terms of planes / and analyzing:

TUTORIAL - General Principles of Anatomical and Figurative Art / Cross Hatching

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Head #7 Ref#009

Thanks Rebecca! You're totally right, I am just copying rather than analyzing! I didn't realize til you just told me

Ref#009



After doing this I've realized how bad I am with colors. Which is why this one is giving one hell of a time.

I'll start from scratch again on #003 with your recommendation Rebecca. Thanks for the link. That tutorial kinda reminds me of one that Ron Lemen (aka fredflickstone) at conceptart.org did. Fortunately I saved them before the image went down, I guess I'll have a look at them too.
