Subject title: Camnel's Sketchbook

NEW CHALLENGER ARRIVES!!!

Hey everyone, I'm Camnel, from Santiago de Chile. Think this forum is awesome so I finally decided to start a sketchbook :D My final goal is being able to draw manga/comics for fun, got to learn everything so I'm starting with characters, heads specifically. First I'll try getting the general structure and then moving into each feature until I get it right. Also send me a message if you want to draw with me. I'm really friendly and will be grinding this stuff the time it's necessary xd

Did these skulls a while ago, this is the spirit of the kind of practice I'm looking forward to *.*

Image

These are from loomis, reading his book about heads right now:

Some head sketches I did today after studying loomis, having a hard time getting stuff done without ref, not particularly happy with them but it's a start:

Image

Giving the fist steps into cool heads, infinite practice incoming, wish me luck xD All comments are welcome, feel free to say whatever you like.

Thanks for welcoming Hybridcity and Fergato ^^ Hope to get along with everyone :D Pretty awesome people.

Today I kept with Loomis drawings, full eyes training! Also had help from a Proko video, informative stuff.

its totally unforgibable that i skipped this sketchbook ._.
nice works with your studies...
id recommend to simplify things a bit more, an excesive ammount of guidelines might be confusing sometimes...

z4m97, I was hoping senpai would notice me xD About the excessive guidelines, yeah I think it's a pain but is helping me understand the forms in more depth/3d. For studying purposes I think is worth it :p

Did some mouth and lips stuff today, these studies are bringing light to my ignorance, pretty shocking actually :roll: Should stick to this to get dem skills.

I really like where these are going. Also really like the way you're presenting these, gives a real sense of direction in terms of what your practicing and trying to achieve. That top one would be an awesome exercise to do again after you're done with studying the rest of the facial features.

Thanks for commenting sanguine and Jpcorpuz ^^ Your words are really encouraging, you two have sick sketchbooks, love them :) I'll do the heads exercise as well post some creative stuff in the future, now I'm building muscle!

Today I went into noses, another difficult topic to me xd got some sense of what are they about. Trying to solve the mysteries of the head, detective Camnel is on the case, here is the report.

I won't be able to use my computer and have limited access to internet for some days xd Will be doing traditional until then, after my head studies I find way easier trying to understand others artists styles. Did some manga Bakuman drawings, my ink is messy, got to practice it a lot, also got to buy new pens :c

Thx mate ^^ About the heads, think Im gonna relearn everything by atacking the issue by different angles, it's been a week since I started and have to solidify every topic. Here is a to do list:
-Hair
-Different ages
-Expressions
-Extreme angles

Here are some random head doodles just to show something until I continue with my studies xd

Hey, thanks for checking out my sketchbook. I thought id give yours a peak. You're certainly a lot more vigilant with your studies than I am. I'm loving your work so far. Can't wait to see more and watch you unravel the mysteries of drawing the face.

Also, if you have any tips for making studies more fun, I'm all ears. I'm so damn lazy P:

Good luck man!

Something I noticed that might be helpful; it seems like you're drawing the eyes too far up on the head and slightly too large. I'm certain you already know this, but the eyes are ~ half way down the head. It gelps to ve concious about the proportions and placement while you draw. Sounds weird, but what helps me is touching and feeling my own face.

Yeah I'm aware of that proportion info, being told is a great reminder to internalize it though. Also touching and using a mirror(webcam really xd) is something I started doing recently, inspired by sycra's last vid where he references himself to draw expressions. Your comment is indeed helpful, thx :D

I'm grateful you are liking my stuff(they aren't that fun lol), about making studies more enjoyable, sharing to other people is already a great deal. Other thing that helps me is to be very specific on what I'm focusing each session so I don't enter to a "dafuq am I doing" mode, so the improvement and knowledge are obvious. Be proactive on that matter, think what would be better for you to learn something. Also is not bad to mess around from time to time, one of the faces I drew on my last update is a friend of mine and had some laughs when I showed him the drawing. Oh and music, can't draw without good music as background.

I'm a bit sick of pure heads training so I'll move into figure drawing, also need to know how to connect it to the torso in order to get into the next step xd. My plan now is to learn as much as I can from the proko videos, researched a bit and it seems the best at least for me. Did some gesture and beans, I must say that drawing with timer isn't really comfortable since I work better when relaxed and panic a little with the limited time xD Some figures are broken and out of proportion, hope I get something for doing this kind of practice.

Thx mate you are always so nice T_T

Did some 1 min gesture and 30 sec beans, feeling that I need more practice doing this kind of stuff. Also tried doing some design, felt like doing some masks, may be material for character design in the future. Colored some with the little knowledge I have about colors xD
