    Silvenon's SB - Criticism appreciated, possible nuditiy, but not likely

    Well, I'm kinda new here, I don't know how everything works. Looking at all your cool sketchbooks makes me feel depressed, but I will continue drawing. I didn't go to any drawing school, but I took some video lessons from riven phoenix. I tried to develop my drawing skills, but all my drawings are from the 3/4 view and all the characters have the same facial expression..... yeah, still learning

    I'm trying to draw looking at photographies to study facial expressions, the first two drawings are from photos.

    I hope you like these, I hope to make more soon.

    Btw, I never figured the neck area completely, I mean, I know the muscles, but the shading's killing me, should do some studies probably....

    Hey! Not bad! You're doing pretty well right now. The only picture (Which I'm sure you see too, so hopefully I don't sound naggy ) is the third one, with the chick with the pure black eye on the left. Her head and neck definitely need some work. But these are what doing studies help with. Even if you dont have your drawing supplies with you, just observe the life around you, and try to keep a 'snapshot' in your head, if that makes any sense, on how the head and neck relate.

    Keep it up! Hope to see more.

    Hey there, and welcome to concept art.

    Don't be intimidated by all the good stuff here (often difficult!), take them as something to aspire to. I know it's a bit cliched, but we all have to start from somewhere.

    Your first piece is the strongest. Best shading and most realistic. Last two are off in proportions. Looks as if you've drawn the head and neck first, and then added the torso. It might be better to start with torso, then move to everything else; helps you keep things in proportion.

    You should look into some anatomy books to build up a strong foundation.
    here is a helpful link someone else has provided:

    Hope to see some more posts.

    Thanks for replies!

    @SkyTheArtist
    Thanks for the head and neck advice, I'll try to do more studies so I understand those better.

    @Leramettev
    Thanks for the welcome. Oh, yeah, I won't stop drawing..... Making a sketchbook will make me draw all the time and that's what I want.

    Yeah I like the first one the most too, but it was from a photo so that doesn't count, because I didn't quite understand what I was drawing (well I did most of it). Yeah, I did exactly like that, added the torso after...... ok, tnx for the advice, I will start of the torso from now on, I never tried before, might be interesting.

    Thanks for those links! I didn't know there were such things, I'm getting on them!


    I will post my studies soon (well, not mine, the ones from the video lessons).

    You need to push the value contrast further. Especially in the pieces in the first post, almost everything is a neutral gray, with only subtle variation. Get some shadows and highlights in there.

    Your anatomy sketches are better in that regard.

    Good studies, keep them up and be aware of your tonal values and light source, try to maintain a nice range of lights and darks

    This is an awesome start! Just make sure when you're posting stuff, don't just post the good stuff, try to put up some of your crap drawings. You can get some good advice from people when they can analyze the full quality range of your drawings.

    These are really good though!

    Take a gander (Sketchbook!!)! If you don't have one, a goose will do. <-- Lame Joke.

    Your first face picture is really good and your doing well in trying to figure out the anatomy!
    keep at it, i'd like to see some coloured/finished pictures of yours!

    Some more drawings.... hope you like 'em

    First: More of a study, I copied it from a photo (my photo, no worries, bwahahaha)
    Second: Well, I'm not too happy about it, especially the hair, but the bricks turned out ok . I got the inspiration from Indiana Jones
    Third: Something I drew a while ago in school, I'm really happy with the result, especially the drapery
    Fourth: I don't like it so much, but it has something I like
    Fifth: Something I drew when I was thinking about fights and how scary they can be (I'm not a pussy, I just don't like getting beat up)
    Sixth: Hehe, four fingers....

    I was wondering weather I should leave the eyes out or to put them... I decided to leave them out, I love a little creepiness
