Dennis is a student currently enrolled in my foundation drawing class at the School of Visual Arts. Dennis is certainly a quiet student who goes about his learning in a methodical way.
You can really see the progress Dennis makes in his sketchbook. Towards the end his drawings just take on a whole different feel. They becomes much more relaxed. Dennis’s drawings look much more refined.
It really is amazing what can happen when you push yourself to finish two sketchbooks in fifteen weeks. If you want to improve your artwork you just have to draw more. It’s really that simple. I’d like to say it’s about quality and not quantity, but it’s really about more versus less.
Specifically when learning how to draw. When it comes to creating pieces for a portfolio, then it’s quality over quantity, less is best.
Thank you for taking the time to take a look at Dennis’s sketchbook. I trust you will see his progress.
Check out Dennis’s Instagram. Thanks again Dennis for sharing your art.
Here we go again with another sketchbook video. Sean is an intense guy. His life drawings are pretty incredible. They have so much form and movement. His life drawings in his big 18 x 24 pad are even more impressive.
Sean has a definitive style. He likes to push and pull his characters exaggerating certain character traits. Sean is very creative working mainly from life as well as his imagination. It’s certainly safe to say that he hates drawing from photographs. Sean dislikes anything that involves copying. He thrives on bringing diverse characters to life all from his mind.
I love having Sean in class. He goes big with every page in his 18 x 24 pad. He draws big creating very interesting compositions through overlap. He provides the other students with lot’s a great ideas.
Plus he has a great sense of humor. I hope you enjoy his sketchbook video.
Always seek out and refine what makes your art unique. Be different and draw what you love.
