    Yakov Hopes You Will Help Him Learn How To Be A Great Artist

    Hi everyone. I've decided that I'm only going to live once so I'd better start a CA sketchbook right now!

    Part that you skip over because it's boring:
    I'm sixteen, I live in Pennsylvania, I'm a sophomore, I like drawing a lot, I have a pet dog, my favorite color is green, and I'm a Leo.
    /part that you skip over because it's boring

    Please critique me, teach me, tell me how much I suck, etc.

    Without further ado: art.

    These are a bunch of drawings from the beginning of summer up until now. They're in roughly chronological order.

    Sketch of my school from a photo. Took a few hours.

    My first ever charcoal drawing. Lopsided because it's one square yard in size, and I wasn't used to working that large.

    Charcoal life drawing. Took an hour.

    Life drawing of a lamp. Massive amount of graphite wasted getting this effect.

    Life drawings of a skull. I bought a skeleton to keep at home so I could do this.

    From now on I'll be posting what I do on a day-to-day basis. Just wanted to get these out there.

    If you post in this thread, you're my hero.

    So far no one is my hero. Post something - there's still time before the position is taken.

    Below is a study of a 3D model in the art room this morning. The next two are unblurry versions of the skull drawings.

    For a second I mistook the school drawing for a photo. Nice shit man, love the portrait of your friend, though the hair looks a little tacked on.

    Thanks kiksq. Hair is sometimes a weakness of mine.

    I'm not yet fully adjusted to having to actually do stuff for school, but I've gotten a few small things done in my sketchbook.

    Work in progress - life drawing of a skeleton. I took the photo with my phone - please forgive the quality.

    Quick color study in Photoshop. That's what it looks like out the window behind my computer.

    Oooh that last skeleton looks -so- pretty...! The skull and spine look especially nice with all their little details, and they really pop out from the dark background - great work. It's gonna look awesome when it's finished. The marker/pen work you've done looks great as well, I'm in such awe of the patience you must have to draw all those itty bitty little pen lines you can't erase... Argh, haha. Anyhow, crack on and post more :>

    Thank you for the kind words, Andrea.

    Charcoal and pencil drawings today.

    Here's what my friend would look like if he happened to be a zombie. He was moving around, so I wasn't very accurate in the drawing.

    Good times in Latin class. This one's actually my favorite for its neatness.
    Attachment 468642

    Sitting outside, I spied a tree. I drew the tree. On a piece of paper. I would like you to see it.
    Attachment 468643

    And a quick charcoal sketch of what I saw as I sat on my lawn.

    Bunch of papers to write, but I got a drawing done for English class.

    I went crazy with this one. Pigma pens, ink washes, prismacolor markers, and brushes dipped in india ink.

    Picture taken with my phone again. Sorry about the quality. Don't know why I have to talk in fragments. Gotta go now.
