    crappy drawings??? oh you're lucky i don't post any of my drawings and out-crap you!

    they're not crappy, they're just a start. don't think of them as crappy but as practice. after all, practice makes perfect.

    i like the first one with the plant, looks very edgy (which isn't bad)
    the proportions on the figures also seem off, the male's arms and head as well as the first woman's nipple and navel.

    another note
    when you take pictures, try not to move the camera around, what i would do is lean the sketchbook against a wall or something and put the cam on some books and just press the button, so that you do not move the camera too much.

    CA.org isn't about how good you are, it's about improving
    your off to a good start. But I would like it if you post your drawings up straight instead of sideways.

    keep drawing.

    I thought that Color should be used AFTER learning how to draw good.

    Nice start but you should post your work so that we can see it from the right angle.
    Also I think you should give more attention to drawing what you actually see. Specially you last picture lacks good abservation.

    DOn't limit yourself to just learning to draw, go ahead and learn other forms of art as well. If you focus on one art form and think you pick up another later, then you will never get to the others because all your time is spent on one form. Art is something that is a continuous process, you will never reach the level of master until you die! Leonardo was not seen as a master until he died and only then did people realize his skills and abilities! Same went for Michelangelo, Raphael, Rembrandt, and so on. So again, don't be afraid to learn other art forms as well, maybe even combining the 2 together! Keep up the good work! If you meet an art master, chances are that the only "art" he mastered is being lying 'con-artist'!

    Well, its a good start, but it seems like you need to dive a lot more into your drawings. There is a huge difference between practicing, or drawing, in a mechanical way, and thinking about it when you are at it. Thinking about your work as you go through it will help you become aware of your issues faster, allowing you to overcome them in a better way. For example, in loomis' head studies, you should try to repeat what you just did, but now pay more attention to the measures. the first balls are fine, but when you start constructing the face, everything seems out of place. like if his jaw had been punched. So as everybody says, keep practicing, but think about what you are drawing, not jus copy what you see. Put some logic and life experience to it. A good excercise is to use your self as a reference to compare with your work. I don't mean to sound rude, but i really think this would help you to improve. If you are already putting some thought to it, put some more!

    I hope this is of any help. Please feel more than welcome to come by my SB and share some thoughts. Keep drawing, that's the answer!
