    You don't use it you lose it, gonna try to get it back.

    I've had this sketchbook for awhile. I'm not the most dedicated person trying to be a pro illustrator or artist. Just someone who considers art a big hobby. I figure I'll slowly fill the pages of this thread and I'll improve over time. Cheers.
    You don't use it you lose it, gonna try to get it back.

    Leaving the original text from when I started years ago. Not an art or design major anymore just learning for fun.


    I just realized I've given no background on me or my sketchbook

    I'm 19, a Graphic Design student and I love to draw
    I dont have a tablet so I havent gotten into serious digi art and such
    Mostly pencils and some charcoal or other random materials
    This is my first sketchbook I've made on CA.org
    I feel I've already improved a lot since I started it not too long ago]
    I update when I can, but this thing called "life" gets in my way occasionally



    ================================================== =========

    Ok first one, this is my first image using "Gimpshop"
    (I dont even have photoshop, need to save up for it and other programs)
    You don't use it you lose it, gonna try to get it back.


    Project for my 2-D design class
    I didnt have a ruler so I didnt make all the perspective the same
    So some buildings may look like they tilt and such but I like it still
    You don't use it you lose it, gonna try to get it back.


    This started as a sketch I did when at Lunch
    I just experimented and it became what it is
    You don't use it you lose it, gonna try to get it back.


    Another 2-D design project
    tried to make the image get smaller into the horizon
    You don't use it you lose it, gonna try to get it back.



    Ok and to at least do SOMETHING productive
    Here's a quick hand study I did
    You don't use it you lose it, gonna try to get it back.



    That concludes my set of random images that have nothing to do with studies




    My next posts will be some studies and something that will actually help build my sketchbook and give people something to actually help me with

    But finals are next week so it'll probably be after that during my break



    Gaah kinda hesitant to push submit haha

    hey,
    i just introduced my sketchobook not too long ago aswell but its nice to see even newer ones lol.
    u have a unique style there.
    - seeing ur hands, ur still gonna need more practise on those.
    - i like ur first pic though, but u shoulda coloured in the character in photoshop or something.
    - some anatomy, face practise goes a long way (as i found for my profile pics)

    but keep it up and post some more!

    Check out my SKETCHBOOK ...looking for helpful advice!

    hey welcome and this place is a real good place to get better, you can see it in some of the threads that span over a long time, its pretty crazy
    anyways i agree with gkrit, just a knowledge of form and proportions can help you a lot, i would say just keep on drawing and drawing...practice!
    keep on updating too!

    Great work on the hand studies. There's already a remarkable improvement there...just shows that practicing things simply works...

    I like the image with the tree in the background, but i think that swirling vortex thing in the background is too distracting...the styles dont fit there.

    Promising start tho, keep at it and practice those basics more....I should too...

    zeroe - Thanks alot after doing all these studies I realize how I viewed the human body so simplisticly and had everything all wrong


    I was about to do something different from studies for once
    but the moment I started to draw a figure I just couldnt continue because it felt I was doing it all wrong now haha

    So I'm kinda doing studies everywhere right now, hands, head, body etc....

    zeroe - Oh yeah almost forgot also that drawing with the tree
    I filled in the background because I had to use some random drawing techniques for the project, the drawing was one of about 6

    So I tried taking out the vortex on my computerr

    Finished my first final of the week, wasnt too bad

    Here's a quick self portrait I tried
    I havent done any studies on the face yet so I know its not perfect but I tried

    And the lighting on my reference sucked alot... so I couldnt get very defined areas of light and dark if you know what I mean, but I tried to give it at least some sort of shading

    im happy to see ur hands have gotten better... see ... it does pay off (dunno how many times ive said that b4...).
    but about ur self portrait, imo, dont think u have to rely on wat ur reference looks like, makes some artistic decisions as in, complementing darker areas even more or creating a light source thats even stronger than in ur reference. thats if ur unhappy with the light source anyway.
    hope this all makes sense. try it if u want.
    other than that good job with all ur work.

    Thanks, after being away from my drawing for awhile and looking back at it
    I notice that the eyes are a little too close together....

    Eh whatever I'm not going to fix it. I'll just draw something else later haha

    i see that ur blaming a lot on your references... id say draw from life rather than pictures. that way you cant say "my reference sucked"
    right now its seems like ur using reference as a crutch and when you cant copy the reference you blame the reference.
    set up still life scenes
    have a friend sit for you.
    draw stuff. a lot.
    everyone can get better. there isnt a person on this earth that was born able to render a perfect picture without practicing. great anatomy studies though. keep doing that! the more you know the better

    looking for work! pm me
