    Striving to get better!

    Well I told myself that when the semster is over ill start a sketchbook and here it is now. I live in Houston, TX and so far I only know a handful of artist and even so they dont have same goals I do as an artist, dont draw together frequently, give critiques about my work, etc.... But I found this site and there are so many amazing artist on this site its uncanny. So I plan to update frequently, so advice and such on how I can become a better artist is gladly welcomed. I got Bridgeman's anatomy book along with some Hogarth books. I draw from my imagination most of the time and the only time I really draw from life is at the mall, but its like quick 30 seconds skeches, rest of the time is photographs which I hear is bad.

    Well let the journey begin ...Here are sketches from the last month or so.

    Been in a slump these past few days, dont know what it is, juat cant seem to draw shit. Perhaps it's because I really dont know alot of artist where I live with the same passion and goals I have for art. But o well, gotta work with what ive got. I was looking at Android's (who is fucking amazing) art and his background, which like blew my socks off and got me out of my slump. Guess its just the thought that if I can bust my ass hard enuff that in time, I can reach that level that hes on. But o well, enuff of my babblings, any crits or comments about my stuff would be mighty helpful.

    Nice start, Andrew. I especially like the outdoor-piece - it has something in it that I can't put into words. It just caught my eye and I had to stare at it for a while.

    I also like the latest 'mug-shot' that you have sketched.

    Your line-art is a bit 'fuzzy' in some of your sketches, though, but if that is your intention then it is a-ok. In quick sketches the lines tend to be more unfocused in general anyhow.

    I'd love to hear what you think about my SB too, so come and take a look.

    Need to update more, have no reason for slacking updating this more often.

    Arthe: Yeah I know my lines are messy, I was looking through the loomis book and he said one of the most common problem of the artist he taught were "petting the lines" which is something I do often. Think its due to my lack of confidence whenever I decide to draw something, need to get that out of my head and enjoy art for what it is.

    Arch: Thanks, I hope im going down the right direction cause it sure doesnt feel like it

    Random sketches over the last couple of days. Need to really get through these anatomy books and videos.

    Drawing alot of self portraits since its hard to find a place and time for me to draw people form life. Starting to see alot of mistakes in my artwork, all I have to do is correct them...which is easier said than done.

    ok,well you have motivation and wish to draw hard - that's good and important, for a constructive crits is early, if you want crit stay away from these sketches you doing right now,just for a moment,or when you sketchy regular with that try to do some anatomy practice, don't understand me wrong - just you have to understand the human form,constructions and proportions well,just start to scribbling gestures,take a loomis book or other anatomy book,take some magazines or photos for ref. and start drawing and drawing,if you really want to get better practice is your decision,make some of these practice that I've already told and post them here and you will take some constructive crits for sure
    Draw more and have fun !!!
    I hope my post didn't hurt you,just you have to push yourself hard and improvement gone find you
    Best wishes

    Atlantik: Hope I dont misunderstand you, but I do anatomy studies and such but I suppose they arent straight up textbook style from like from Bridgeman or Loomis. But im gonna start studying it alot more now. Im also not mad at your post, if anything im thankful that you even decided to give me some advice. In general if its something negative or postive comment, it will fuel more to draw even harder than before. So with that said, thanks.

    Came across that site posemaniacs and havent had that much fun drawing in awhile. Its an exciting feeling when you have to like race against the clock . But I think this may be my new drawing outlet...But here goes some artwork from today.

    Not that productive today, just had a chill day. The first one is a SP, and the rest are imagination.

    Hey man, we can already see some improvement from the first pieces to here. Nice to see that you're studying anatomy, you got some pretty nice studies there.

    My only advice would be: try to focus yourself more, chose something and practice it till it looks good, not that you should draw the same thing for a week waiting till it turns ok, but i see that you try to learn too much things at the same time, faces, hands, poses, fullbody, etc... So, try to focus a little more, you'll see improvement faster!

    Keep it up!

    Carbono: Thanks alot for the advice, im gonna start doing that.

    Since ive started doin SP's and such, ive come to see lots of mistakes in my drawings that I never noticed before. Now all I have to do is correct them which is easier said than done because I still tend to make mistakes. But o well, practice makes perfect right?
    First ones a Sp. Second is some Arm studies, and rest is stuff from imagination.
    Need to draw more.

    School just started and im taking some art classes (finally) so hopefully I will learn alot and make progress becoming a better artist.
    First 2 are sp's (which were done kinda in a hurry due to my poor time management, but o well, every artist is as good as their worst piece of work), then I started doin 3 poses a day, and finally some arm studies.
    Need to make out a schedule so I can get back to drawing alot more.

But I have now come up with schedule that has designated days for paintings and my studies.Hopefully this works out well and I can get back to updating on a regular basis. GOTTA IMRPOVE!

    It surely has been awhile since ive posted anything, need to get back into the habit of doing it, it felt as though as was making progess when I updated frequently.Not even sure if people look at this, but none the less, it makes me feel im progressing with my artwork. I Enrolled at a painting class in school and all I can say is wow....like its cool and all, but the instructor hasnt taught me anything yet. Our first painting he was like you all have the paints so now paint and then he leaves the room and when he comes back he just looks around and leaves again. When I or anyone else asked him for help he just sayskeep working on it and went on about his day. But yeh, no teaching how to blend or anything of the sort. But luckily there is someone in the class who is really good and he told me he doesnt mind if I come to him whenever I need help with something. As always, crits and comments are always welcome.

    But this my first painting...ever really. We had to use 2 colors plus black and white. But he didnt teach us how to how to blend or talk about color values before hand, just said start painting. I know they are not good, but yet I post them because I want to improve.

    This is my second painting that is still in progress. But I got a feeling for the brushes and paints from the 1st one, so I just did this one to see how much I really learned. Did a crappy monochrome underpainting first and now trying to go over it. Its not for a grade or anything but just trying to understand how to paint.

    There is this insturctor that has taken intrest in me because Im constantly trying to get better and whenever he sees me im always drawing so he gave me permission to join his life drawing classes for free. I mean...who would be foolish enough to turn down free life drawing? So these are from the first day, 15 min each using colored pencil....that wouldnt let me erase. But need to build up accuracy anyways, my lines are too scratchy.

    i like your figure drawing very much,it's a fast way to learn.don't rush at shading stage,it needs patience and practice and of course,a good knowledge from the form that you are shading.I'm sure you will improve very fast,just draw everyday.
    keep it up man

    Need your critique

    Wasnt really churning out spectacular stuff today, was just looking around CA and saw Mindcandyman's sketchbook which was more than inspiration than anyone could of asked for. But here is some stuff that I salvaged that looks somewhat presentable.

    Current Sp that was just started for the hell of it but gonna work on it more to see how far I can push it.

    Hey Andrew,

    I started on page one of your sketchbook and I could see a lot of improvement by the time I got to the top page. Everyone's right, studying anatomy is the way to go, especially if you're interested in character/creature design--and it looks like you are. What are your goals in art? Once you know that, it helps you figure out the best way to go about achieving them. My goal is to be a kick ass concept artist. I've got a fine arts degree, and I'm glad--but it turns out that doesn't really prepare you to be a concept artist. So, I'm teaching myself to be one.
    When you're ready, there's a few threads on this forum by Seedling; she's in the game design industry and she's posted a lot of awesome tutorial threads:
    Concept Art 101
    Perspective 101
    etc...
    You can copy and paste all the lessons and save them on your computer--that's what I did. Check out my sketchbook sometime and let me know what you think, ok? I'm studying anatomy myself. I've taken a couple of years worth of life drawing, so I have a decent grasp of it. I'm studying each individual building block, and then the parts in relation to the whole right now. I just finished studying the spinal cord--so complicated, but so awesome to draw--and now I'm working on finishing up a character/SP inspired by my studies.

    Let me know what you think. I've got a bunch of ideas for practicing drawing the figure that I've come up with if you ever need some help.
    Oh, and who told you drawing from pictures is bad? It's not. It does make a difference what type of pictures you're using. For example, drawing from sports illustrated--which I do--is good practice for gestures/action poses; and things like vogue are good for practice with the figure in general but it's a certain "type" of figure...very polished and not like everyday, "real" people. It is best to draw from life, but in the interim--which is most of the time when you're busy (I work a day job 40 hrs a week and only have an hour or two a night to work on my stuff, for instance) you can use pictures you've taken yourself of real people out in daily life to use as reference. The only time I believe drawing from pictures is bad is if you're using the image exactly as you find it without any creative twist/change--otherwise known as copying/plagarism.

    I have what I call a "field day" once a month. I go out to a public place--downtown streets, tourist sites, malls, etc..--and take pictures of people without them being aware...I have a 12X Optical zoom digital camera, so that allows me to photograph people without them being uncomfortable. That was a lil birthday present to myself this year. I'll be using those pictures for reference when I finish up with my book study of the bone structure.

    Keep drawing, you're doing great ^_^ Work on having more confidence in your lines. It doesn't matter what it looks like, it just matters that you're drawing, you're loving it, and you're giving it all you've got.

    Cecely: Wow, thanks for all the kind words and information. Ill check out your stuff and see if I have anything to offer

    Been kinda hectic for me these past days for me but still here are some drawings that I salvaged out of the bunch.
    I swear learning to portray the figure with all the anatomys and proportions seems almost impossible, I ponder if I will even fully understand it one day....

    but enuff babble.

    Been doin some stuff in pen to work on confidence and such.
