Lots done this week!

After my drawing class on Wednesday, I've been practicing a whole lot on bone structure and trying my hand at anatomy. I'm surprised i'm actually thoroughly enjoying having to think about what it beneath what i am viewing of a person. I still need to get my muscles and joints and stuff sorted out have a go at all those parts and do full anatomy studies but i'm definitely improving in this area.

I'd never really paid much attention to drawing hair before as I've always thought of it as more a laborious process that would take a long time, having to draw every single piece of hair but i've been practicing done some hair styles here and there.

I did some general portraiture along side my anatomy studies, which included my studies on the hair. This week i need to go more in depth with those hair and portrait studies. Or more work on anatomy! What to do!

I've been doing lots of work within UDK and Maya at the moment, which will probably come up in my next blog post so keep a look out! :)

More Portraits

Not been drawing as much lately. As i've been working on some levels in UDK getting used to the engine the dev kit again after a couple of months away from it. But here's a few portraits I've done in the past few days.

Zooey Deschanel, and i tried to draw my friend from an extremely angle using the griding method but it didn't go very well! Will have to keep practicing.
Also a Digital painting of Steven Fry, the initial sketch of him was good but my colouring skills on skin and definitely not up to par!

Small update this week will make sure i do lots of work for my next one though!

More insects, doodles and anatomy!


I've been drawing with my tablet tons the past few weeks seeing a definite improvement, which is very heartening! Still need to get used to giving objects a more convincing 3d look but that's an improvement that i need to do both on paper and on my tablet.

Doodles and Anatomy

 I'm still trying to improve my portraiture so I've been doing plenty of eyes noses and other facial features but i have still yet to successfully combine them together producing something that is recognizably the person whom it was attempting to portray.

Been doing still more and more insects practicing there features and even trying to come up with some insects of my own that look believable.

Also after last weeks drawing classes we've been tasked with doing hands and feet. I've practiced drawing hands many times before because they are a part of the body that can be difficult to draw but they are often on show. Feet however i have struggled with so I've done some studying of the muscle and bone structures and i'm trying to improve on this aspect of the anatomy.

I've been trying to produce more detailed portrait drawing i seem to be able to produce the individual details with decent quality but when putting it all together i doesn't look real or i can only produce from certain angles and views. Such as side on or front on.

I've gotten access some more books, specifically by Andrew Loomis, that apparently will guide me through methods for drawing features from any angle. That's my task this week! Hopefully i can pull it off.

Here's some of the work I've been doing today on my day off anyway. Looking forward to another drawing class tomorrow!
