    A cat's sketchbook

    Hi there! I decided to open an Sketchbook here on CA because I want to grow more on my drawing skillz. I've seen many impressive Sketchbooks over here, but mostly great help and critique. I desperately need that from you, so please comment! I'll appreciate honest help.

    Please critique!

    I really like the last study.

    How long did it take to draw such a face study? And what media is it, pencils?

    Spats: Thanks! I'll appreciate your help to improve.

    TTL: Thanks. Can't remember the exact time, 3h or more. I'm very slow. It's all Photoshop.

    I'm now practicing my "feel," trying to feel the form of real people. I'm picking movie stills from IMDB since I don't have much chance to draw people outside.

    Here are some scribbles ref'ed from Iron Man movie:

    I'm intrigued... why can't you draw people outside?

    The SB is coming along nicely. When sketching be aware of values as much as line. Sometimes it looks like you're too much emphasizing line over value like when you draw lips. When doing hair, focus more on massing the shapes. Best of luck!

    MarkWinters: Not that I can't, just I don't have much opportunity due to work and other activities. I have this defect/virtue of wanting to excel in my hobbies and failing due to competing time.
    Thanks for your critique! I didn't notice that of my lips. I'll keep that in mind. Hair is difficult to me.

    Now, some Indiana Jones. First Indy was too small to see details. I totally missed proportions on the last, rightmost one.

    "Aliens" + a bit from "The Prestige." I didn't remember Aliens having such great photography.

    Thanks for your feedback on my SB. My suggestions would be to try and keep your lines loose and fluid. Like most things in life, this comes w/ practice. Another important factor to remember when drawing the figure is to block out the major shapes and proportions first and then add smaller details. Keep at it!

    Heya jgwong, wanted to really thank you for dropping by. So I immediatly went to your SB and youre doing really really wel yourself!

    I really like the quick pose sketches, already they are looking very solid.
    But what I like the most is the portrait from a foto or movie screen grab,
    its very very good the lighting and color is excellent! Really love that one!

    Good luck with everything, and again many thanks and keep up the good work!

    Pen back in hand. No refs this time.

    A disciplined student:

    A cheerful girl:

    Hands are as complicated as the whole body. I cheated with the student, hid a hand on his pocket, made the other one invisible, so I tried to render both hands of the girl, unsuccessfully.
