    Arnaldo's Sketchbook [Update 11.12.07(today lol) 8 drawings]

    Hey everyone my name is Arnaldo Jose Rivera, I'm 17 years old and I come from Puerto Rico. I been wanting to do a sketchbook for quite a long time, but never had the courage to do so until now which I sometimes I feel it is a mistake, but it is better late than never, right?

    Most of my sketches are done with ballpoint, there are very few done with pencils or other media, but you'll see them around hehe. Im here with the purpose of improving my actual drawing skills by listening to the poeple of this forums, that have great knowledge unlike me, Im looking foward to see comments and crits, or whatever you feel to say about my work, wheter is a helpful crit, or tips for getting a better scan outcome('cause my scanner sux)... I don't know whatever you feel to say, say it. I don't know much about digital art, in fact I have very few digital pieces...most of them are done with a program that my tablet(now broken)brought...I think it is called Corel Painter Essentials 2...I guess it is a simplified version of the widely famous Corel Painter(duh). The few times I used it, all I did was improvised since I didn't know much how to create certain effect and stuff digitally...and I really enjoy more when I work on paper or other traditional media. Well, I don't really have much more to say, the words will come as I get the comments with crits, question...or whatever you feel to say hehe...I hope you enjoy my humble sketchbook.

    Good job, your conceptions are very unique and imaginative, and your skill level is not only high for a 17 year old, but also your discipline and your aesthetic judgment, with the former reflected in your bringing work to a satisfying finish, and the latter your selective use of detail. Most young artists use too little detail, or too much.
    The only crits I have are with what look to be life studies, the shading on the hands are not completely successful in conveying the form, and with some of the eyes you want to avoid rendering individual lashes, start first with the mass, then tickle the edges with a few stray lines to suggest the character of individual lashes. Alternatively, many artists will omit the lashes entirely, depending on the scale of the head being rendered.
    Post more soon, I really enjoy your work!
    O Hell, forget what I said about the lashes, a second look after posting revealed to me your rendering of the lashes shows a very sensitive understanding of how they act in space, of their form and the perspective containing them.

    ah, glad you started a sketchbook, really liked your yellow bloodsucker entry. Your creature designs are fantastic, as well as those facial feature studies. Nothing to crit right now, I want to see more! Teen artists FTW!!!!!!

    Cory Hinman- Thanks alot for the crits, I agree on what you say about young artist! I used to think a while back that making everything extra detailed was the important thing, now I learned it's not. I agree that the life drawings(hands, right?)don't have very conveing form, that is something I have to do more often...life drawing, that's like a great learn of learning about...everything hehe...I'll try to do more! Thanks for passing by and for the kind words!

    Goog- Hey, thanks for the kind words! Gald you liked everything and I'll try to update very often! hehe teen artists rock! xD

    You just attach a small thumbnail in your first post, the one you use will work I just think it has to be another format. Like .jpg for example.

    Nice stuff here, I'll comment more about it when I get time.

    Gorromog- Thanks for the comment, I try to do my creatures mostly from improvisation on this days, there was a time where I putted more thought on them...but on this days I'm thinking too much in other things, so I improvise. Thanks! Nice creatures from you too! xD

    InvertedChalupa- Thanks, I try my best to improve myself, and I know doing a sketchbook on this site will be helpful! Cheers!

    Cool stuff man! If I can offer a crit I'd say do more of those thumbnail gestures. Crank out a couple pages of maybe 100-200 of 30 sec poses and you'll be amazed at the progress. A good site for that is: http://www.posemaniacs.com/blog/ Best of luck, -francis
