Well, I am giving this a whirl, lets see where it takes me.
These are just some quick(ish) sketches I did today and yesterday using my newly acquired software (OpenCanvas)

I love the face picture, i bet it would look even more awesome with some colors and flaming eyes, remindes me of naruto
Here is a quick sketch I did
here are some more.
The pencil sketches are a bit old.
The side view of the mans head is a WIP - can't get the lips the way I want them, so they're left out in this image post.
I'll get to posting more soon!
hmmm... stylized portrait sketch thing...ugh
Great sketches. Work on your anatomy- study the human figure and you'll be awesome!
@LauraD: thank you, that's where my focus will be until I feel more confident

Small update..took a break from art for a while and now getting back into the swing of things.
I suppose you are rather new to drawing.
If you are it seems you are doing stuff rightly. i like how you try out figures, it will take lots of hours of work but youll do well if you keep with it.
God' told me to relax...
Digging the face pic, can see some decent studies happening. Watch the large head proportions that most of your pics have - makes all the characters look like 13 year olds.
Just keep at it.

Just a quick study in photoshop...
Here are some studies I did today, while ignoring my ex at starbucks
updates ishnesseseses? I set up a daily art checklist to get myself motivated to continue on.
Heylo pixel! Czesc, jak sie masz? Dis is Borat ...wait, something went wrong there. >.> Anyhoo...
Main thing, stop worrying about features and details for now! Just try and concentrate on major forms and contours in your studies. Break things down mentally into basic shapes or even do that on paper if you want. At the moment you're losing the forest for the trees. Force youself! Try some negative image studies, those are great at making your mind see the negative space around what you're drawing. There are some great tutorials in the CA tips and tricks section of the forum. They'll help you out plenty.
Keep it up! *touches ur face*
First of all... think in big lumps, the small ones come later. That means, basic figure drawing. Get bridgemans book (PDF.. Hell.. google it...) Hogarts is also very swell for human physiology. And never EVER forget to have fun while drawing dude . Now here's the secret to drawintg Exellent..... PRACTICE. You'll get there...
Greetz and cookies,
Writerof: Thanks for spending a moment to look over what I have posted here. I'm definitely going to work harder on my studies. Thanks again.
Just a quick sketch that I did the other morning before class.
I like the lady's ass like I said before. Her overall shape is also quite good.
The little girl's face on the contrary is a bit too masculine to me... I think it could be perhaps a bit more roundy and softer. I also don't really understand how her legs are, but you haven't really but that much effort to them I think. But at least her nose is lovely.
But I actually love that cute green robot you have there. I think I can't myself draw anything tecnical or anything that should look like metal. Also the little blue creature is well done. Its legs' shadows are especially nicely done.
Keep them coming.
With many hugs

Post 20 and on seem to have taken a serious leap forward. Time stretch in between?
I'd suggest to continue on this path you have, studies studies and guess what... more stuides
I'll be watching you
Sadetar: I really appreciate you sitting on mogulus watching me sketch that chick - it was nice to have some 'live critiques'.
Matte_Art: Yeah, I think that I started this a year after I graduated from highschool after lurking for a while. Then fell out of drawing, preoccupied with my first year of college, and my addiction to WoW (ugh). But I've put myself on the right path now. Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Eh, some quick stuff of recent days. (I NEED TO DRAW MORE IN A DAY!!!)
I think I have saw those faces before. I don't know did I mention back then, but it seems that the man's eyes are a bit odd - the one which is closer to us seems to be closed and the other one is open... or at least I see them so.
Those handies are actually quite good. I especially like the one that is illustrated from above. Did you get model from your own hand?
And then there is a man and some manly tools. Those you probably googled?

Hi, just wanted to wish you welcome to the SSG. Definitely a nice start you've got here. If you're looking for a structured approach to studying basics you could always take a peek in my "Drawing basics" thread (based mostly on using Vilppu's DM) - jump right in if you feel like taking that path as well. Otherwise mybe some of the link recommendations I've been given there could be useful.
I think what's most important is probably to make daily drawing a habit (if serious about improving quickly), that should be goal one: Draw SOMETHING every day. When that's a routine you could start thinking about "drawing for X hours every day" - and don't forget to have fun with your drawing. After all: If it's not fun - why do it?
Looking forward to following your progress. Keep drawing (preferably from life - I'm also learning loads from copydrawing from masters) and enjoy yourself.
/M, the "granddad" of the SSG (30+) :-D
Nice stuff you've got here, I think the quick sketches in #23 are particularly strong.
If I could advise you on anything, it would be to work on facial features and how they fit on the head. Loomis's book on Drawing the Head and Hands has a bunch of good advice regarding this, I recommend it.
Otherwise, welcome to the group and keep the drawings coming!
