Sketch dump by makangeni Sketch dump by makangeni
Various sketches done for fun and practice.

Photos used as references for the majority of these sketches.
The human figures are based on artworks by Burne Hogarth.
For one sketch I've used this sannas.deviantart.com/art/The-… as reference

oh, and where did you find your references?

makangeni Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013   General Artist
the birds where done during an art class and our references were stuffed birds, for the dogs and the wolves I've used some photos I found on google, the human figures are based on drawings by Burne Hogarth and the two sketches in the upper right corner and in the bottom where done without references.

I never seem to be able to find decent refs from google... How do you manage it X(

I simply write what I need xD you can try writing the name in your language and also the scietific name of the animal (if you're searching for an animal), sometimes I also search here, on deviantart, but I usually find quite good refs on google.
however, when I have to do a complete work I try to be careful with the copyrights of the photos

Yeah i find google is better than DA, I just find it hard to find interesting poses to reference. I also am very careful when it comes to copyright, my tutor has told me the most dramatic stories he's experienced as an illustrator. I don't want to get involve in anything like that!

You can tell how far out of league you are to an artist,when their sketches look better than any of your final pieces ever will.
...I'm absolutely drowning in envy right now.

These sketches are gorgeous!
The perspectives and details of your canines are so natural and the detail is so clear and clean.(that's horribly hard for me).
I must say,the human model sketches...are simply divine,I feel so inspired just looking at them.
As an anthro artist,I use both human and animal subjects simultaneously,so when I see this,it is like a treasure trove: sketches in their raw state of art(especially of both subjects I admire so much.

your comment makes me happy, because I know a lot of artist that are A LOT better than me! I think it's only a question of constant practice, moreover I usually use references (in this sketch dump I made without references only the sketches in the bottom and in the upper right corner).
references help a lot, especially if you want to reach realism.
I love watching other artists raw sketches and sometimes I prefer them to the finished artwork :)
thank you again!

I have many artists I aspire after...all of them leagues away in ability.I'm glad it made your day.
Hmmm...okay!I'll certainly try more references.
Sketches are always the base of a drawing.As long as your sketch is good,it is almost guaranteed that you can make the picture beautiful.
