    getting started with digital drawing!

    Hi all!
    2 weeks ago i decided to start with drawing. i like it my whole life, but i never put a lot of effort or study in it, just sketching a little during classes.
    i started by just drawing a little without purpose, which gave me the sketches i attach to this post.( and a lot of other stuff at the same level and worse some of them are by reference, most of this post are from my mind.

    i hope u guys can give me a lot of tips, since ive seen great artists on these forums, respect to all of you, i can only dream of becoming as good!

    (deleted the drawings in this post because i want a chaqnging thumbnail in this first post)

    at this point i realized i didnt have coal and other materials then a pencil, while my modeldrawing book wanted me to practise with that. so i decided it was time to learn draw a decent head. ive been roaming around on these forums a lot in the past 2 weeks, so i decided to start with a book a lot of u guys seem to like: Loomis' How to draw the head and hands. it doesnt really show of yet i think, but im really learning a lot of it, this guy is a genius in my opinion im gonna focus on practising with this book until i can draw nice heads!

    attaced to this post are some of my sketches based on the book:

    Hi, thank you for posting in my thread. I thought I would stop by to visit your page as well. First, to get a signature, go to "User CP" which is toward the top on the left side of the screen. From there you should have an option to edit your signature. Second, many times I also find that my scanner doesn't pick up the pencil lines so well, so if that happens I normally try to adjust the contrast just a bit to darken those lines, but I try not to do it too much because I don't want to change the actual drawing. You may just need to adjust the settings of your scanner a little bit.

    I am pretty new around here too, so I will keep checking back to see how you are doing and will offer any help that I can, although I am a beginner. I recommend that you continue studying those books because when you started with the figures, your drawings seemed much stronger. I think I need to check out some of those books too. Keep practicing. I would love to see more figures.

    A guy i met at my job gave me the advice of making 4 5 minute drawings of a picture, and after that make one that u put more effort in... i tried it, and i think it kinda helped me to better understand it, and draw it nicer. I wont bother u with all 5 drawings, but here are some outcomes:
    1 from james bond, pulp fiction, scarface and pirates of the carribean these are all 10 minute sketches

    Hey man, thx for stopping by at my sketchbook!
    First what I would like to say is: Thats the spirit!

    Im really terrible at crits but Ill try to say sentence of two
    First of all dont be afraid to push up contrast a bit...so the drawings dont looks so pale...tough I might be wrong, it might be the issue of your scanner. But still vary the line weight and deeper contrast in order to make your drawings more interesting.
    Also noticed you use Loomis books for references which is good, stick to if for a while. Watch out for proportions. Your heads are often too big and body a bit stubby.
    And one last thing dont smudge the pencil with your fingers to make shadows! Use only the pencil for that. You can check some books about rendering with pencil. They help alot!



    Its great that you are really into it! Just draw...!
    You are on the right track!

    ...soon you will see some serious improvements, trust me!
