    .:: It's not good - there's just a lot of it :: Beast's page of self hating ::.

    Yo yo. Welcome to the ghetto. I'm an 18 year old guy and this is my

    All criticism is welcome and relished, I aim to do 3 sketches a day for the entire year so I can see how good I am by the end. This will either result in a moment of satisfaction or my untimely death, so it should be fun to see the way the year progresses.

    This is after about 1 week of practice so here we go!
    I know I'm sharpening my knives!

    Numero Uno criticise away. I've been using George Bridgman's uber guide to 19th century drawing (or at least that's what it feels like). I'm not sure if it's doing me any good but I'll continue. Anatomy is the best place to start for sure, I just have no idea with what part or where or how. Or anything.

    Good start man, great to see you diving into anatomy straight away. Bridgeman is a great resource and copying him is a great thing to do, keep it up!

    Also, in addition to these studies, I'd recommend you draw some objects from life, focusing on accuracy of the shape, and, less importantly at first, accuracy of tone and shading.

    keep going mate

    good start man. you should try to refine your lineart before moving into the values. and also with the human form you can put down very simple shapes (blocks/squares/circles) to define the overall shape of the person. its very easy instead of simply trying to nail the figure spot on first try. this way will let you start off simple and refine as you go along. just start off w/ very light lines then refine on top of that and bring out the character more and more, once the line work is done thats when you should move onto the shading, because if you move into the values too soon, you tend to lose the life of the character by rushing. keep it up and keep studying. (bridgeman's is definitely a good resource) just keep practicing. maybe look into going to a life drawing class at a school, because you will be able to get a lot more out of that then what you can get from a book. but it is great to see you starting off w/ anatomy right off the bat, as it is one of the hardest things to master. so keep posting and follow what the unicorn of encouragement says.

    Nethus: Thanks a lot!
    I've continued the studies. I think I'll cover the whole body with Bridgeman to get a feel for it, then work on some musculature to nail that, then start to have fun and innovate on different body types - see if i can fit it all together!

    Thesadpencil: Thanks for the really helpful criticism! I'm going to buy some lighter leads. I've been sketching in big books with black leads and wearing them down. Although it feels nice to define characters in a sweeping set of lines I can understand that my eyes might be playing tricks on me - selecting one of my multiple lines and tricking my brain into believing I nailed it. I thought I'd just skip the whole "you need to study anatomy" and get straight into it. It's also the most logical place to start...

    Anyway, more updates!

    Arms, torsos, and bodies ahoy.

    First body done without reference. I gotta get hips and side musculature down I reckon.
    Attachment 296319
    Nethus suggested that I try out learning the skeleton. So I am. I made a poor start on the right leg because I was tired. Doing the pelvis and rib cage is gonna suck.

    Also a leg study. I gotta figure out the masses and shapes...

    Any C & C most welcome.

    ADDITIONALLY: This stuff is huge - how can i scale it down?

    Hey there. Thanks for the comments and visit to my SB. I like your start! I'm excited to see you using basic shapes for the dimensions of the human form, something that i have yet to progress in

    Keep it up, i'm glad to hear that you're trying to sketch everyday.
    Take a gander (Sketchbook!!)! If you don't have one, a goose will do. <-- Lame Joke.

    aha!
    i figured out how to make them fit into my moniter.
    v. clever alex. this whole thing has kind of exposed me for the techno-phobe i really am.
    so much progress in so little time maximillian. honestly, you could accomplish anything you really set yourself to.
    the forms look fluid and natural already. not stilted. you have the ethos of an artist inside you. now use the gift to realign the detritus and chaos of the world.

    Did some leg studies - and started the dreaded heads. Noses as well. Oh the fun.

    Arrgh dude, Your out pouring of work makes me look baaad. Any way, All I can say is to just do some stuff out of your head as well, to apply what you've learned, (your getting good fast).
    my sketchbook is a work of art.
    sorry that joke WAS horrible

    Thanks for stopping by my book! Your anatomy lessons are paying off, i think. And Bridgman is a great teacher (you probably saw my own studies of his work in my sb). The faces in your very first post were pretty horific compared to the ones in your last post! Great job at paying attention and changing how you see - now do the same and try to draw entire figures from head to toe. Begin to understand the dimensions of the ENTIRE figure and you'll really be on your way.

    ahh nose studies....fun stuff....well i gotta say though its coming along nicely i also like how you are able to notice some of the mistakes w/ the anatomy yourself. thats always good because you can only learn and get better from every mistake. it also looks like in the newest leg studies you lightened up your line which is good. keep at it i wanna see some more.
