    In a memory of a friend.. // 22 feb.. UPDATE !! seriously !! no bs!

    I've been surfing this site for some time now and i am loving every bit on it!. So i finally decided to start my own sketchbook try do something about my drawing. I tried it once before but did not stick to it. But now i got my self a scanner to make things a lot less complicated

    anyway, i'm starting art-school after xmas and i'm hoping to improve my drawing there and here! so i will be posting old and new stuff.!

    edit: I have decided to dedicate this thread and my progress to my dear friend, Jakob who died in a horrible accident, on january first, only 19 years of age.

    edit 2; been a minor change... im just trying to find out how to change the thumbnail so i moved the pictures from this post to the next one no biggie

    Regards

    Gauji

    Hi there, looks like you have a good start with the sketchbook.
    My crit is that you tend to draw a lot of tiny stuff, but I think your bigger drawings look much better. Maybe you should try to keep their size big enough to add details comfortably. Also I would say look out for the scratchy lines on some of them even though they are sketches.

    thanks for stopping by my sketchbook and keep on drawing !

    Hey again! Takk fyrir heimsóknina

    Those are some good studies and will prove useful later, just keep them coming, daily! I think you should put the comic/fantasy stuff aside for now, since you're drawing them from your imagination with no references. Just draw from references for a while. Draw from life, study other people's life drawing, paintings, sketches and see if you won't improve within several weeks. Good luck!

    Good start man, I think that you would benefit a lot from working from life or reference materials, if your looking for poses I read a post the other day where someone recommended good site to work from characterdesigns.com anyhow keep up up, and I'm looking foreword to watching your progress

    Hi sjuskadur, Thanks for your encouragement.
    I believe that you'll have a good time in Austria~a beautiful country.
    Don't forget what you told me: practice + practiceeee~~! when you back back from your holiday.

    Cheers

    It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........

    Hey!
    thanks for commenting my sketchbook!

    your self portrait is lookin good! I suggest, to get better at drawing faces, try doing a page full of just one part of the face. Like one all different kinds of eyes, referenced from the mirror, or pictures, and another of noses, mouths, etc. it really does help!

    while drawing from imagination is great, ASA's right, referencing and studying things before drawing and making them "fantastic" will help in the long run.

    also...I am sorry to hear about your friend, i think it is very touching that you dedicated your sketchbook to him.

    will visit here again..keep on drawing!
