Racasdorph's Sketchbook: Let the journey begin! (Please Crit) :)
My name is Ricky Casdorph
I'm 22 and currently attend Colorado State University studying Art, striving for a degree in both Graphic Design and Painting!
This "Sketchbook" will hold both sketches and "finished" pieces!
I will try to update this almost daily as time permits!
Any comments and feedback is greatly appreciated as I signed up to ConceptArt.org to learn from everyone
Oh and PLEASE CRIT! I want to get better!

One thing I'm noticing, looking through this. When you do (what should I call them) motion studies, you use a simple 'rig' (lines and ovals) to get your proportions and movement set, but when you do your anatomy studies, it doesn't look like you have a structure underneath, and it shows. For example, the last figure of the head and torso, the rib cage is way out of proportion with the head. A simple rig underneath would have corrected that. I heavily recommend you get a blue pencil to build the rig, then switch to regular pencil to get your details.
Life drawing is about the toughest thing you'll have to master, so just keep drawing and you'll be surprised at your progress (in retrospect at least. with me I can never see improvement until I've put stuff away for a while then gone back through it.)
P.S Have fun with the tablet. I recently got the one you are getting (or have gotten) and I'm loving it. No more sore wrist!

clayman101: Thank you, yeah in those larger pictures I have not been building them up really, I will definitely work on that! Yeah life drawing is incredibly hard and frustrating sometimes heh... but i guess that means I need to practice it the most!

hey dude, your progress is going well, just work on getting a very accurate contour line, then work with the details then. make sure you are drawing the same object in space, then you will know what i am talking about. Less talk more work
