    My Illustration

    Hi everyone, I have been drawing for a few years. Recently my mentor Neondevil suggest to create a sketchbook to improve my drawing, so here some of my drawing (I'm using reference from picture found in magazine and internet). Critique and comments are always welcome. You can suggest some advice too.

    Hi! Nice start for your sketchbook.

    The 1st pic looks a bit like 2D to me. It lacks depth and what should be invisible behind/on top of the head is visible. The head seems to be unnaturally long and the hair looks like it lays on the (too long) forehead instead on top of it. On the other hand I think it could be easily fixed by making the character look down.

    The 2nd picture lacks form. Especially in the back. I haven't seen the reference material so I don't know if she really had that straight back, but as a drawing it needs more anatomy.

    The faces look very good! Something is a bit off like the woman in the 2nd pic having his eyes going slightly in line like this / and lips like this \. But it's barely noticeable (at least for me) so it's fine.

    You'll get it. Keep 'em coming.

    Your drawings look pretty good, you only need to darken everything , don't be afraid to use dark pencils and don't be afraid to mess up a drawing.
    Keep it up !

    agreeing with everyone at the minute, but ill still add my thoughts [like it or not XD]
    take a look at values, everything has that same shade at the minute, darken some areas more
    also, the cross hatching thing, try doing it with the skin/contours, rather than just across everything thats in shadow
    [ridiculous example but youll get the picture]-

    now to take my own advice and try some of this myself XD lul
    keep uploading

    Sky_Eagle thanks for the advice. I'm always afraid to use darker color because I'm afraid to make the person I draw look to have a darker skin. Any advice??

    iheartmyself my contour drawing always bad. But this time I try your advice. I think it still bad.

    I agree with the people above - go for it with the dark pencil!!! It's a black and white drawings so nobody can really tell what a skin colour is. Some anatomy drawings would help you design as well.
    keep at it !! =)

    this is better!
    but, for improvment purposes, perhaps try to limit yourself to the amount
    it looks like youre doing it for the sake of showing form. notice how in the example i gave you, there is ALOT of white
    you kinda started doing it with the chin in yours, but then on the cheeks etc you went wild haha

    your digis coming along nice too, keep going
