    hey man welcome to CA!

    thx dadushin, appreciate it

    ill keep that in mind for my next creations (values). i can see it also in my work but at that time i was mainly looking for form and shadows to be present

    these following pics of faces (mood for faces that week) were drawn straight from my imagination...
    last pic was an experimentation - creat form just from shadows, no solid lines used.

    hey thanks for post in my sb!

    from what I can see here,,, you don't have serious problems in drawings or techniques... but I see some problems in face proportions (eyes mainly) in front view,, "perfil?" (the side view) of the head is fine,,, just a bit problems with eyes,,,,
    try to draw from reference.. it will help a lot,,, drawing portraits and so on..
    amm! and another advice,,, try to link your sketchbook in your signature

    cheers!

    ----edit---

    Now we are three in the same boat xD 17 yo finishing high school... actually I finished it...

    Hey thanks for the comment on my first attempt at a sketchbook
    Your stuff looks good so far


    As far as critics go on your last pic I think the ear is a little too small

    hey man good start
    just checkin back
    as for the rock
    i don't know much about ps but i know some techniques
    you can use textures and overlay them using photos or just texture frames
    a good person to look at would probably be....sparth and mr blonde come to mind, you can just search em here on the forums

    dadushin - thx for making me aware of others that could help me with my work.

    Osau - well now that i actually looked up how profile shots looked like i got better results from memorising and practising diff face shapes and thx for the complements. and the bold guy (#3) to me looks a bit like Xavier from x-men lol

    as for now ill be posting my newer version of the floating rock .. couldnt wait for a response on wat to do with it, so i experimented a lil and this is how it turned out... (i think its better now BUT PLZ tell me wat u think)

    That face looks much better now that you've blended it out more. Although I think that the ear might be a bit to small still. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think ear usually starts at eye level. Yours is a bit under it

    The other thing I saw on the profile is the temple is quite far back.

    I like that chick though, her hat...headdress thing looks tight.That armored dude up in post 8 is a sweet idea. You should work on him some more

    retardedmonkey - i agree with the blending AND with wat u said about the other features ... thx for letting me no about the temple (just measured with my hand now and it shouldve been just after the eye instead of 1cm lol)
    ... and with the armoured dude, im thinking of working on him some more (photoshop or something) and i think a lil bit of fixing up is needed too lol.
    thx for the comment.

    now, as a solution to some of my head problems ive gone to the basics... here they r

    he there.. thanks for postin in my thread.. like your creature ideas.. think you have to make a little more contrast in your drawings.. when you´r working with photosho you just have to make some corections at levels.. or you have to work with some darker (smoother) pens.. ..would write more but my english sucks

    The7Artist7 -yay for CA some more!! .. thx to this, ive been art obsessed!!! ... and thats all im trying to do now, is improve.

    ajvenema - art-busy for sure and thx for the motivation. ive done life drawing (nude lol) b4 , but was only 2 sessions so it wasnt enough, now its just for the basics. then stuff like photos observation and them will come in but thx a lot for commenting. each one is more motivation.

    FAST ART - for one, dont be self conscious about ur english, i like to read ppl comments, and even if its not fully grammatically correct, ill make sense of it anyway. and as for contrast, ive noticed it also when i compare my work with others'. but its good to no wat others think rather than self judging them. we'll also have to talk more about photoshop stuff but in more detail this time lol

    keep in touch guys

    ill post my 'eye' drawing tomorrow. but by then ill prob have more work too!
    geez long post.......

    Thanks for stopping my my sketchbook. 17, huh? Well, you're doing a lot better than I was at your age. Just keep hitting the basics for now. Have fun with it, draw monsters and aliens and whatnot, but keep hitting the figure drawing books and drawing from life (including still life) as much as you can. Fill sketchbooks! You'll see the massive improvement that you are looking for in a hurry.
