thanks for helping me post my pics, your sketchbook looks great, you can already see improvement, which is really cool, keep doing the life studies because that will be the foundation that all of your other art will be based on.
I think your last couple of portraits are really awesome, keep it up!

What DANKA means by mass and volume/geometry:
Volume: Is a term we use when we want to talk about a shape, and the space that shape occupies. When someone says, "I'm having difficulty reading the volumes of your drawing", what they're basically saying it, "I'm having difficulty reading your drawings as representing 3-dimensional shapes or volumes". The bigger question is, how do we interpret objects as being 3-dimensional, and how can we as artist represent 3-dimensional objects on a 2-dimensional surface? There are plenty of ways to show volume, all of them interrelated in some way. We can use: Light vs. shadow, perspective, contour, color, and value (there are more, I'm sure). Part of being an artist is figuring out some of this one your own.
Mass is basically anything that occupies empty space.
Geometry is concerned with the shape size and relative positions of objects within space.
My crit, for example: in some of your sketchbook pages you have this habit of leaving a ton of space around your objects. For instance, in "03-02-2008001", or the second to last image from the bottom, your pretty much have this unfinished object occupying 1/4 of your drawing surface. The result is, the space overwhelms the character, and the character looks awkward and out of place. Your space, therefore, is not organized. We organize space with mass, and show that there is a hierarchy of space by containing it or defining it with mass. People don't often think of the shape of space which is between two of more objects of mass. Being an artist, then, is about controlling the use of space for the placement of mass. Do you want to overwhelm the space with mass, or do you want to create almost an equilibrium between your mass and space?
Remember, space doesn't have to be presented as white on your drawing surface. Space is just the absence of mass.
I hope that helps.
wouuhu! I really apreciate your comment! and Im not gonna wait until my next upload to say it!
Dan Valkar, buucha que mala, para cuando vuelvas yo cacho que no voy a poder entrar tan seguido... ojalá que igual me quede un tiempito pa subir.. emm pa pasarme por aquí. El personaje hahaha es que no tenía mucha imaginación, no me cruje el cerebro cuando pienso en accesorios, asique opté por hacerle una sombra bien oscura adentro xD, lo único que se me ocurre son cinturones con bolsos nada más...
Uhm the upload from today.
Some drawins from a movie first inked ones sucks!! hahahah the ball point drawings are better..
and some quick self portraits standing in front of a mirror
Hey man you have some good progress since your first post. The portrait of the short-haired woman and the blue pen drawings of the astronauts in the last post turned out really good. Look out for the lines to go over the form you want to express when you apply tone and not in a random direction. Thanks for visiting my sb. Oh and yes I am 20 now
