    Nomad

    Hello everyone,
    This is a drawing i did of a nomad from a National Geographic I found laying around the house. I wanted to know what I did wrong or what is not correct, basically a critic, lol.

    I'm really confused by a lot of the things because I'm not sure what they're supposed to be. This is largely due to the fact that the shading is all one shade of gray. I can make out an arm (which is too short if it is an arm) and I can make out a face. The left side of the mouth could lose a couple millimetres. Ear is too high, nose is too low. They're generally around the same line. Since the nose is too low, so is the mouth. The right side of the shirt hangs too far from the body.

    Can we see the reference?

    "Yakko...?"
    "Yes, Ms. Flameel?"
    "Multiply 47 times 83."
    "Multiplication, it's math education! Isn't this swell? Oh, let's give multiplication a standing ovation...
    so buy a calculator, study this stuff later!"

    -Animaniacs (only a few good quotes from that song. Search "The Multiplication Song - Animaniacs" on YouTube
    for this video and any other Animaniacs classic!)

    I donít recommend copying photographs as the best way to learn, but it is, at least, a good source of interesting subjects to get your imagination going.

    The areas where you havenít drawn in shadows are the stronger parts of your drawing. I suspect this is because you donít entirely understand what is going on with the light. Try this: put a simple object on your desk and shine a strong light on it. Try drawing it the same way, with outlines and then with blocked-in shadows. Then try drawing another character like this one.

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
