Sketchbook Thread of Johan Derycke

Stimulated by seeing the first thread on the anatomy series I've decided to finally start my own thread. I've no drawing background at all since I did my first drawing only in december 2005. However, I'm seriously concidering to go to the local art academy and start the 4 year drawing course in september (as it is now, only practical issues could stop me, being a father and all), but why should I wait until september right?

My spare time (read time to draw and paint) is extremely limited (a couple of hours per week max). and since I'm a real noob at this I'm very slow, so bear with me
Oh... and don't expect to see anything outstanding here please hehe
I'm hoping to learn from your crits.
Thanks,
43

edit: Due to limited webspace I will have to make a choice, namely resizing images or deleting some.

Images from post 1 up to post 122 have been deleted already
Images start to show from here

NR43,

Welcome! I look forward to seeing your work. Don't worry about not having a lot of drawing experience ~ after 50 heads, you won't be able to say that anymore!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Head 001 WIP

Thanks Rebeccak,

So I've started on the 100heads workshop.
Here's head nr1 after 30min.

First thing that comes to mind is I have to get this stage on the canvas a lot faster ^^
I'll update asap

ok, had an icecream with the kids and worked a bit more on nr1

spending more time on it than I intended (I thought I would have gotten further with this much timespending) but I guess it's not the main issue

NR43,

These will definitely go faster as you do more of them, which is completely the point of the exercise. It's really helping me as well just to get past the details and simplify. Looking forward to your progress.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Well, I think I've spend a good 3.5hrs on this one in total. As I'm writing here I notice I forgot the eyebrows but other than that I'm pretty satisfied with it...

I use a custom airbrush (one where I've made the edges harder) and I blend with the "Just add water" blender brush. Blending by just painting over the same areas doesn't seem to work all that well for me


thanks for the support

NR43,

Really liking these simplifications and analyzed head drawings better than the rendered version ~ definitely think doing Loomis is a great idea, and look forward to your studies.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I really wish my lines weren't so shaky and scribbled.
I'm watching the work on the heads workshop thread and I see all these nice and fluid lines so I try this to but the more I try... argh. Now i can't even make a straight line lol. I hope no one will tell me that this is where the talent comes in

edit: head nr48:

I strong believe these are learnt! These are achievable through efforts and practises!

I can see effort in you! You can do it too! =D

A suggestion for better lines, Draw from the shoulder down, and not with the fingers only!
short strokes with fingers are only for detailing! get most of the stuff done using the shoulder also.Hope it helps.

rest assured 95% of drawing well is a result of systematic study over a period of time !.

I think u have to just free up your lines and your proportions are good as it is, so thats a big plus!

cheers
