Okay, this is hard. I've been viewing the sketchbook forum for quite a few months now, always awed at the amazing work people have contributed and the inspiring leaps of skill beginners and professionals have made through their time here. It's time I faced up to my fears of inadequacy and let you view my work, if only to be provoked further into making myself a better artist. So here goes:
This here's a pencil sketch (2H) of a lady I on the tram to work this morning. I like tram sketching because i've got about 5 minutes before my subject gets off! I need to work on stronger contrasts in my sketches, if only to get them to scan well!
A couple of pencil studies from last night. Most will recognise where the study of Norman Rockwell comes from, it's part of his famous self portrait. I love Rockwell!:
A study of michelangelo's libyan sibyl in PS:
Another PS study of Durer's feet:
I'm presently ripping into Loomis and doing studies of the masters on recommendation from my upcoming tutor. I'm about to start an intensive course on anatomy drawing, so hopefully you will see improvements in the coming weeks!
Thanks for visiting. Drill me!
