I have been lurking here for a long time. The quality of artwork is truly amazing and inspiring. I hope to attain that level someday.
I am a complete beginner. Just have been drawing here and there sometimes. But I really like Concept art and hope to be an artist. I know PRACTICE is the right way, and I hope this sketchbook thread will somehow motivate me to just draw and post. I hope to see some progress. I would be grateful if you guys would comment on my work and give me advice... I NEED IT
Anyways... here goes.
Visit last page for new updates !!

Reason: Sketchbook Update
So here is my first post. A few pages from my sketchbook. I sketched these a few days back...
I know that my lines are a little(?) too sketchy. Hope to improve my line quality. They are just simple figure study, using references. I hope to attain more detail after I learn more of anatomy and values as time goes.
Just a simple character sketch that I tried out. A female assassin's face. I took me a lot of time to draw this, and sadly everything is wrong with it. Proportions, detailing... Have to learn more of head anatomy.
Hey, those figures are looking pretty good.
For the portrait you did though, you should move all your details like the eyes, nose, and mouth down the face. Right now they are way too high, especially the eyes so it seems like she has no forehead. The chin is not aligned to the mouth, and I don't know about this one, but the jawlines too long, making the cheekbone unusually high up the face.
Try drawing a vertical line and horizontal line on your portraits before you draw any details so that you'll have a good sense of where the eyes and nose will be. Hope it helps, I'm not entirely qualified to be helping others though, lol.
Guess I'm back after a very long time. Been busy with shifting houses and then moving into a hostel. I joined a college for a degree course in animation. So had been busy adjusting to the hostel life. Although i did draw, I haven't draw as much as i felt I should have. I will post those works later on. Now that I am on a break, I was able to give myself time to set things straight and get to drawing a few sketches.
Interested in car design. Need lot of work I know. But thought I would just follow some tutorials... use some references and just draw what I can to warm up and get the feel of car shapes. Here are some sketches.
Since i am finding it really hard to draw the human head from different angles, I thought i would make some efforts to sketch some skulls from random angles using references (I downloaded a series of images of skulls in different angles)
I love to draw faces.. but I am not that good at it. So had to start the study. hope this will help me. Please comment and give me guidance on how to improve on the whole getting the form thing straight.
This work shows promise You seem to be scratching or 'chicken pecking' your lines, try and use one long swooping line, it's feels uncomfortable at first, but as you grow confident it will take you further than the scratching method. Keep it up
SamC : Thanks for commenting. I will try that. Been through your sketchbook, and only makes me want to sketch more. So here i go
Did two unfinished portraits. Since I felt I should at least see how I go at it. Came fairly nice. Compared to the one i had made last time. Please comment on it and tell me if there is any mistake, and what I should work on.
More car sketches... it looks kiddish. But some I like.
Was so bored that I would just make simple forms and then got on to experimenting some combination. They are pretty small... next time I will make more effort, since they can help me draw better figures as well as technical stuff.
