    Oh please not yet another sketchbook

    I expect you to critique me.
    I expect you to gangbang me with critique so hard that I'll be crying tears out of my NOSE.
    If I'm not lying in a corner sobbing after the first post, you're not doing your job well enough.
    I need some serious progress, it's only about a year or so until I start college, and... I really want to get into one. >>

    More to come!

    A quick study of value I did with a mechanical pencil.

    You have some very good drawings there, you drew the skeleton very well. All your drawings are well shaded.

    Thanks a lot, Icedearth15876! You think you could tell me what to do better?

    Here are some pen sketches from the local library... a month or so old, and filled with splotches. Goddamn piece of crap pen.

    Some of my older works. Please don't kill me because of the horrible Photoshop filters, lack of light source/proper background and the manga style. I'm... working on that.

    The three girls belongs to twinklecrystalx and Kuchinawa over at deviantART.
    Don't kill me for that either.

    Exams over

    School's out and the hard times of exams are finally past tense.
    I've hardly had time to draw at all, and I've been through some kind of artist's block... I hope it will disappear now when it's vacation.
    Expect some paintings soon, as I've bought paint. I need to get down some hue and value studies, as well as anatomy studies.
    But that's what vacation's for, isn't it?

    Some crappyass head doodles... drawing heads is soothing.

    Great start there! You seem to be good with figures, hands and overall proportions look right as well as faces (apart from the big eyes and pointy chins, heh). The skeleton drawing looks great too. I think the main problem in general I'm seeing is wonky perspective. It's clearest on the shadows of your item sketches but shows easily on the figures too - the sitting girl's feet seem to be on a different plane than her butt (the foot on our left is too high). I saw an excercise on the mentoring forums about filling a sheet with loads of 3d boxes, first in 1-point perspective, then 2-point and then bird or frog. It's boring but I tried it and seemed to give result pretty fast. Keep drawing those items from life too, good value practice.

    Thanks a lot, smuli! You have NO IDEA how motivated I was after I read your post!
    And of course, you're right. I'll practice loads!


    Because of work I haven't been able to do as much practice as I would lately, but I've managed to fill a GAZILLION sheets of squares. Most of them got thrown away, and some are lost on the mess that is my room, but I grabbed a few to annoy all of you people who sees this.
    Next week, draw shadows using perspective and real life objects using perspective! Hooray!
    Also throwing in two watercolours I did. I wanted to try out watercolours, because... well... yeah. Because.

    You're doing the right thing by drawing from life. :]
    If you feel you need to practice/learn to draw body parts or whatever it is you're lacking in, spend your time drawing them and learning instead of being "bored". It'll help lots. ;D

    Thanks, A La Bapsi! I will! *heart*
    My biggest weakness is that I get demotivated fast... luckily, I have a goal to work towards!

    I drew a cereal box and a matchbox today. I didn't add details or anything, just wanted you all to see the faulty lines. >>
    I'll practice more tomorrow!
    Also, in one of my 'bored' periods, I decided to take up on Bapsi's advise and practiced skeletal structure. I'll try to draw some big, detailed skeleton hands soon to get a better understanding of them, because I need to practice them.
    And legs... hmm... sounds like a schedule.

    try doing that perspective stuff freehand..
    and get more confident with your lines.. try to get away from the sketchy thick lines.. your lines don't have to be perfect, but when you only give yourself one chance to do each line, you'll begin to improve with the few lines you get to use, and you'll learn to look better the first time.. i find i'm suggesting to everyone to do blind contours, they work wonders.
