i scanned it into my computer...and then i clicked the thing that says insert image and copied the url thingy....lol, how do you do it then?
So you are trying to upload from your computer? If so, don't copy any url into the attachment manager. You need to hit the browse button and find the picture on your computer.
You only use the url if the image is stored on a site somewhere.
im trying that now...but it keeps saying its too big and im cropping it to nothing..im so frustrated lol
Hey welcome to the sb zooone!
in the first one I see some pretty eyes and nice shading,,
just, keep posting and youll see progress
Clodioz - Thanks, but the first pic i used all reference on =/
These are a bit older...But I feel they are good enough to show =] (except the Geisha in the first pic, im planning on painting her)
Comments/critiques please =/
hey man nice to see you're doing studies
right now some of your lines are looking a little scratchy to me, i say this alot of people, you use a lot of little lines to describe something that could be described with one, its mostly in your portraits
looks like you are still developing nicely though, that lime is pretty tight
anyways keep practicing and updating man!
Comment please =D
Hmmm...There's a blind contour SP, semi-blind contour SP, normal SP, value study of my deodorant, and a random sketch page...Critiques and comments are welcome!
Here's some self portraits that I did tonight...all different kinds...Some kind of boost in ego or critques or anything would be nice, i know my stuff isnt amazing...but something would be nice =] .........One of the self portraits is in red and it sucks hahaha, but i am just going to show you the bad ones too...I tried to do it at a weird angle in front of the mirror...and it didnt work out that well haha.
Good stuff. Try to stay away from cartooning at this stage of the game, all it does is ruin your sense of proportion. I'm learning this the hard way! Keep it up man and you'll improve immensely.
Shading, You need to work on. The eyes give it depth and alot less like marbles. from the first pair of eyes, to the last one posted, your getting there by adding lines inside the iris.
I Would Have to Agree With Pax, Focus On You Realism And Attention to Detail, Personally Iím Stuck With Lots Of Detail And Just About No Sense Of Proportion Or Anatomy Which Is Hard Rut To Overcome. Stick With It, And Very Nice Work
If I don't do any of the cartoony stuff I will get bored...it's just stuff in between to keep me going...i'm not focusing on that or anything...but thanks for commenting =D
Sorry for the delay, I try to post at least one a day....C and C much appreciated =]
Any comments/critiques or some tips on what I should work on? Somethin?
Something I just finished...Done in colored pencils...Comments/Critiques/tips are all welcome, anything that will help me improve =]
If you want more comments you have to say thanks when you get them and give comments back on their threads. Try posting comments on some of your favorite artists threads. They may take a peek in and give you feedback.
Try participating in the Daily Sketchbook or check out the Mentoring area.
Focusing primarily on one thing at a time will help you see more improvement.

You like hands? Try drawing these hands. Great reference for anatomy.
"What if there is no tomorrow? There wasn't one today."
Thanks Uncle G =P Yeah, i'll try to draw some stuff from that site and post on other peoples
I really like your selfportraits, you can really see the progress you make. When you make a portrait spend first some time looking to all shapes in the face. And then try to get it on the paper, never guess but try always to get the shape right. And watch for the proportions of the head. The distance between your eyes and your nose has to be right otherwise it won't look as yourself. Take your time for it and you soon will see a lot of progress
Yesh, what they say Thanks for commenting btw xD
So critique! Can't ever go without that! Take more time for the portraits. The cartoon stuff looks awesome, but learn all the basics first, boring or not xD
So I noticed you do some of the mistakes I often do which is making the eyes different to one another. In most cases the eyes don't look very identical. You get close though, so you'll get it xD The lips seem a bit big, but that may just be you, I don't know how you look except for the portraits xD
You might want to draw a line to align your facial features. It's what I do to make sure that eyes, nose, and lips are all pointing in the same direction. Otherwise, nice start and by the time you're my age you'll be hella far advanced
OK, here's some more stuffy..The portrait is of my best friend.
Weavel - Thanks for the comment. =]
Soul - Thanks for the comment. My best friend just told me that today-that I don't draw the eyes the same. Yeah, my lips are kinda big..You think I should upload a picture of me so people can critique better on my facial features?
i like the cartoons and don't stop making them if you don't want to, but spend more time on your realism. Good luck
real good that you're doing studies....do some more. Always have your sketchbook with you and knock out some sketches of all the people around you....with clean non-scratchy lines. At this point of the game for you it is hard to do stuff from out of your head, until you get the anatomy knowledge to do so. So draw as much from life, and as you get more confident from that your imaginative drawings will improve.
best of luck!

dude! u have a lot of dedication! good studying, ur trying various things, very good! and ure only 15! keep sketching every day
one thing u really shouldnt do is those Thick lines in your faces, loook very close at a face and ull see there are no such lines its just a change in value. Faces are planes, not lines keep it up!
