    2.17.09

    Hey everyone I just turned 16 and thought I would create a new sketchbook. Partly because I havent updated the old one in a while and I felt it was a good time to start over. I really like to draw and just recently I have gotten very serious into it, in specific, lately I have been focusing more on lighting and using contrats,detail, and texture to provide an emphasis on the subject as well as simulate the way a human eye would focus. I mainly use monochromatic mediums like pencil ink and charcol although I own a wacom tablet and have flirted with digital. So ya crit and enjoy

    I look forward to hearing the criticizm and maturing as an artist

    Great work from someone your age. I dig the bunny Draw from life as much as possible and balance that out with drawing from imagination. Go to some nude life drawing sessions - you're a local so I know they're available! Most of all keep at it!

    New sb! Hi there jedininjaman.
    Thanks for stopping by mine.
    You've got an interesting style going in your dragon piece and the bunny picture. Nice variation, and a nice job on pushing some of those details. I personally like the guy with the 'rebel' cap in post #4 a lot. Although perhaps some of facial features have gone lost in the rendering. Eyes and nose seem a little flat there. I think the clothing just looks great. Jacket looks great although his shoulders are perhaps a bit small. The 'rebel' logo is superb though. I dunno, it just looks lifelike to me. Sorry for just hammering on one drawing.
    You're doing a nice job on the detailing and you don't seem to lack inspiration and aspirations. I have no idea if you're taking classes or anything. I'd recommend Bridgman anyhow. Or some sketching focused on getting the right shapes and structure.
    Or join the weekly spartan trainings under community activities ^_^ !

    Best of luck to you!

    hey dude, thanks for camping in my thread So you're only 16 eh? Well you're obviously talented so what my fellow colleague said: Get some anatomy books and do life drawing and you'll get there. I started way too late on it (I'm 27) so I'm catching up right now.

    Tuner people, not Turner.

    I also just turned 16,but its sad to say ive been ignoring drawing for some time and your work is amazing at our age;a critique though,it just seems to me like the chin on your human drawings are a bit sunken into the neck
    but only on a few
    Other than that your drawings pretty much put mine to shame

    This is so cool 8)... well done. Keep workin' on the faces; you're getting there, but still got some structural issues -- watch for sliding mouths, especially.

    Keep goin' strong!

    Oh cool man, I didn't know you made a new sketchbook! This one is definitely starting out higher quality; I remember the sketches you had on the first page of your last one, super messy, but these are nice and clean.

    Your shading is tons better now. I wonder what it'd look like if you did some of those action sketches of like superheroes and the Hulk and stuff with this new style?

    Cheers

    thanks for dropping by my thread. I hope I will keep posting you a good read and view

    I looked trough your sketches. Nice crosshatching you got there. I like the shadings except for that dracula person - those felt pens didnt really give me a creepy night feel. But the character was well done!

    I feel you have a great sense for shading and values - I would say you should work more on anatomy studies. They look like an inbetween caricature and realistic portrait style. Both direction should have great help with more knowledge of bony and muscular features.

    keep it up!

    nice stuff, its cool seeing other people here my age. It looks like your newer works have improved anatomy, but the creatures pose looks a little off, the legs go a little far off to the left.

    Like others have said, studying anatomy will improve your drawings a lot. just keep at it. Another thing to help with keeping your drawings in perspective is deal with it in larger shapes. If it looks ok in the simplified shapes, then it will look good when you refine it.

    I'd hate to say "that's good for 16" here, but then again I just did.

    Trying my best to look past the fact that you are 16 I think you've got a lot of good stuff going on. It all seems to be brought down by your anatomy... your rendering is good and your compositions feel sound, but your humans and such look like well rendered drawings without a proper foundation. No amount of good rendering can cover up things that appear incorrect and I think it's always just a good idea to start earlier than later on studies like this.

    It seems like you've made good progress with your reference studies, now check out what's underneath so you can do it anytime.

    Keep going.

    Dude that is promising stuff you have. Keep drawing and you'll kep improving! I like the amount of attention you spend on your images, shows you really care about them. And as said, try to do more from life (stills, people, the cat, whatever) - since that develops your ability to see and that is the most important thing. Keep it up! And don;t worry about your speed of improvement too much, you've got plenty of time, just have fun drawing and it will all play itself out.

    Power is nothing without intelligence.

    wow this stuff is really good, great pencil work. nothing much to crit, but i must say that i admire your skill to put in those really bright values, i still have trouble with that, i usually end up with something really dark with lighter grays

    hey, thanks for the kind words.
    i like your pencil style but you have to work alittle more on the line weight and the line's safety. Let it flow freely and find its own shapes. in time and after alot of practice, you'll see that it ussually finds the right shapes as you're drawing them.
    I like that newspaper piece mostly..but remember this: a good piece is just a good piece and we would never evolve if we hanged on to great works in the past. Just keep goin and goin and goin..
    Lookin forward to hearin from you man, cheers and keep it up.
