Hey guys,
Hope you're all having a great summer! im gonna be posting up some SPs really soon :p but i was just wondering, I wanted to study anatomy this summer, and I just saw Michal's awesome sketches :) i was going to buy Bridgman's Constructive Anatomy, do you guys have any suggestions for anatomy books?
Thanks, Parina.
It's me again :)

Here are my doodles

Concept for SP super vilain:

SP caricature:
SP as a crazy vampire. I thought it would be good for a previous task :)
And some random characters:

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it guys and please post your doodles :)

Ps. Thanks Magnus for the first move!

Hey you guys!

Here are some of my anatomy studies and doodles. Me and Erik decided to do some studies of torso so most of my studies concern this part

Studies from Bridgman:

And here I was combining Bridgman with Louise Gordon:

here I'm trying out my knowledge:

And some full figure studies:

Some sketches

Michael has been pushing us to post something, anything on the blog, so I thought I'd add some of my sketches. 

I've been working on rendering. Finding it really dificult. Really good tutorials from Scott Reobertson though. 

Also I'm haveing a hard time with heads so I was following my dad around in a store trying to draw him. Not great, but ok sketch.

These ones I think I did in around a minutte, pretty happy with them considering the time.

Hate the hair!

Working on hands. God there is a lot I'm struggeling with :P

My sister while driving. Sorry about the bad quality on the photo.

OK, so that's some of mine, Michael I want to see you stuff (and the rest of you) ;)

Self Portrait Challenge #6: Anthropomorphisation

Sorry for not posting a new topic yesterday, didn't have internet.. but then again noone took the opportunity to post some late submissions any way >_<

Took Francis suggestion for the topic, hopefully it will be more popular with the rest of you than the once I picked :D Bring forth the entries!

Topic: Anthropomorphisation

the ultimate shield.

Superpower was going to be the ultimate shield, but I didn't spend enough time getting the idea across and focused more on the portrait.. im not sure if it worked tbh.. too tired to think properly.. Ill look tomorrow :P

Oh yea, guys stop slacking this isn't fine art! you don't have to post fully rendered pieces. Post your sketches over summer! Have you been travelling? what did you draw there? Shaaare! I'll get some more stuff going soon as I got my scanner finally :)

Why pick sides when the true conflict is within...?

Saw the new theme tonight and wanted to take part before I left for Ireland tomorrow.
It's late so I kinda had to speed through this sketch, but the idea's there. Shame I couldn't convey more narrative/perspective/background. Drawing hands from memory by raising them up and down = oh dear... :]. Needs more flames/birds referencing...

Ah well... least it's a double spread - sketchbook takes a critical hit!

Have a good week everyone!

How about 'Anthropomorphisation' as a theme for next week Erik? 'Weird and Geeky''s all good :)

Self Portrait Challenge #5: Super Powers

If you were in a world were people had superpowers, which would you have? Would you use them for good and be a hero, or evil and be a villain. Try convey in the design what your intentions are, and have fun!

Oh yea, send me suggestions for topics or I'll keep putting my weird geeky once up :D

This one should end on the 11th, and I'll post up the next one then.

I wish I had the time to get this done on time, but I have been moving houses and finally today at 9pm I got settled.. and we still don't have internet in the new house or a mirror I can place near my computer. So this one is entirely from my head.. so likeness is none existant.. supercheap motionblur on the rest of the image.. but wrah. I do need help coming up with the next challenge :o feedback, did people like this topic? want something similiar?


A ninja need not always conceal his face, especially not if his blade is guaranteed the final strike ¬_¬
Anyway, some silly sketches for this one, then was pretty happy with one.
Disappointed I didn't get to paint on it though :[, sorry ninjas.

And some strange photos to show the mirror setup and what some sellotape and serviettes will do for you ^_^


Maybe I'll take next week's assignment more seriously!
I figure I might as well make it cartoony as only my eyes and nose bridge are visible in ninja garb.
