    lol, wut!? Muscari's SB -Architecture!!-

    Sooooooo, Architecture, yeah!!

    .................................................. ............................
    Update: Started entering CHOW
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Update: Decided to start using my tablet, specially since i have to return the one i have now by end of year (since it isn't actually mine) and i thought it would be good to be a bit more expirienced when i get a new one.

    oh yeah, i'm also a 3rd year architecture student now XP

    n00b! lol, wut? a new guy's sketchbook

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hello everybody, i'm new here at CA.org, even though i've been lurking for a couple of months now. i thought that it would be a good idea to finally start my sketchbook here, even if it's not at the level of some of the people around here... but who cares, i'm here to get some C & C so i can start getting better n_n



    i'm 20, and i'm currently studying to be an architect. i'm on my third year, and i'm quite unhappy with the level of education we're given in my University, at least drawing/painting-wise. I decided to start to learn on my own, since i want to get to a level in which i can get to help my classmates... plus, it's always good to improve your skills

    Edit: lately i'm into watercolors, so i'm just focusing on that leately

    so, here's some things i've been doing
    just did this last night, i'm happy with the overall design. as soon as i get a tablet and some skills at digital painting, i'm redoing it with color

    I'm not one to give you a lot of help, but I will say this: The work you've posted thus far, mainly the anatomy studies, are very, very blocky and sharp. Take the pictures from your 12:41 post today; all the arms have way too many lumps that don't exist, as well as much too extreme curves. The first picture in that post is supposed to be arms, but I never would have guessed what they were if you hadn't told me. Google pictures of bodybuilders (if you want to focus on the more extreme musculature) and try drawing them. One thing you'll notice is that there are hardly any sharp angles; everything flows smoothly. This site has a lot of pictures and videos of male bodybuilders, you might gain something from sketching some of them.

    As for female faces, I'm not good at them either, but I did notice there's almost no facial features other than the eyes, nose, and mouth. Take a look at yourself in the mirror; do you see simply these three features and nothing else, or these three, and shadows and highlights everywhere? I know of a website that has tips for this kind of problem, but I can't find it right now. If I do, I'll post it. An alternative is to go to Youtube.com and find videos of female bloggers. Sketching their faces will give you practice in the composition and expressions of the face, a big bonus if you're looking to get into the professional gig.

    Now to go practice what I preach...

    thanks for the tips =3, though i'd like to say that i never said those were arms, so you did understand it ;D (though, once i draw hands on them it will be easier to understand)
    some, if not every sharp/block thingie you mentioned is on purpose. i'll try to not do them that way once i start drawing from life (no time at the moment).

    once again, thanks for the crits

    Like Silvestri said, just keep working on anatomy... I use Burne Hogarth as many others do. If you have a chance pick up one of his anatomy books it might help you out... Keep drawing and keep posting

    work on your line work but thats all i can say, you seem to be on the right track on the anatomy part, although i think you need to do more studies in that section. best of luck
