Natalie’s sketchbooks totally rock! I totally appreciate you sharing your sketchbooks Natalie. They are really inspiring.
My favorite line of the sketchbook video – I love drawing with cheap bank pens. The cheaper the better I guess.
Nefer is one of the many gifted students who has agreed to share her sketchbook with us all. Of course I get to review it each week in class. But sharing it with the World on Youtube is another story.
In an ever polarized internet where people feel very isolated something very different is happening at members.drawing-tutorials-online.com. People are not only connecting but they are learning how to improve their art in a consistent way.
If you are into fun, cute and cartoony looking characters you are going to be into Kaelin’s sketchbook.
Do you find yourself struggling with painting even looking skin tones? Do the skin tones that you paint look blotchy? Yea sounds awful. I used to struggle with this.
Ellis’s characters are drawn with such super descriptive line, it makes you want to just sit and admire them . Ellis’s characters are totally drawn out of her imagination and are absolutely authentic.
Eunice’s sketchbook will definitely make you giggle today. Her work is really fun to look at and her laugh is contagious.
Her sense of color is really cool. I really like how she gives pages in her sketchbook a color theme. Sabrina draws some really interesting shaped characters which is another attribute about her work that I enjoy.
Having Hyoin as a student is pretty special. She powers in her life drawings with so much energy and passion. As Hyoin draws she fills most of the 18 x 24 pad which is what I love. There is nothing timid about her work.
Understand and utilize surface planes when working on your portrait drawing to create more more dimension.
I ask my students to fill two sketchbooks in a fifteen week semester, Madeleine completed her two in eight weeks. You definitely have to take note of that.
Rex is from Shanghai China. Her story is pretty unbelievable. She was a physics major in hight school, not an art major. Considering how good she is at drawing it’s pretty incredible to witness her raw talent.
What I’ve discovered over the years is that being able to match values plays such an important role in capturing a likeness. Even if you are able to draw all of the measurements of the models head correctly, if the values are off, the likeness won’t be there.
It’s really a pleasure to have Natalie as a student in class. Not only does she dive into each assignment with tons of passion but she also inspires the entire class.
Natalie’s life drawings are big and bold. As you walk by her drawing pad her work just jumps out at you.
After going back home to China, then taking a Summer class at Cal-Arts she came back to visit. I’ve been seeing Pheobe’s work all Summer on Facebook so when she came back to visit I had to look in her sketchbook. Wow did she improve!
His work is so graphic. Mike’s work can be used just about anywhere. Tattoo studios, graphic design, cartooning, on skateboards, the list goes on and on.
School starts once again in three weeks. I look forward to meeting a whole new group of students. At the same time I thank my lucky stars that Emily joined my class last year half way through the semester.
As you can see in her sketchbook she’s a natural with watercolors. I consider myself a pretty neat person, however I’m really drawn to messy sketchbooks. I would say that Bari has one of the most messy sketchbooks and it’s awesome.
Definitely check out this video critique if your portrait drawings look a little flat. Also if you are having a hard time being able to draw a likeness this video will teach you how.
