    Hey Dan, good studies ! I think you should be carreful about the edges, some are weird ! Anyway, keep studying values, try to feel the form, and to think about the shapes when you paint, some areas are still flat ! Btw, when you're using a reference photo, you should post the photo too, it'll be easier to give you critisms ! More more more !

    Wow, I never knew the ssg was still alive?!?!
    As Φ phil says, it is very useful to think in planes, but more importantly 3d. If you think and paint in 3d, then the finished piece will look more 3d. But I think the most important point is that you need to spend longer on pieces!

    Hi there, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

    I'd like to recommend a couple good books to you, Vilppu Drawing Manual by Glenn Vilppu and The It Book by Sheldon Borenstein. These books go through the fundamentals of drawing with the utmost simplicity for ease of understanding and I think that they can really help you out if you give them a chance. The main issue that I'm seeing with a lot of these drawings is the lack of these fundamentals. Here is also a link to Sheldon Borenstein's Youtube channel with some two minute videos which might help you out a little (at least they're free). http://www.youtube.com/user/sheldonsartacademy

    I'm sorry that I couldn't be of much help, there is nothing I could advise that would help you out if you are unfamiliar with the fundamentals. If you are serious about improving, make every effort to discover and familiarize yourself with them. Use the internet.

    Good luck with your work.

    Sir Cam's advice is really important, take note.
    I take BA fine arts as well, and even if they don't offer stuff like fundamental drawing classes, it's up to ya to utilise the internet for self-improvement, self initiative mate

    Look at the resources recommended by the CA posters as potential resources for your skillset- colour/drawing fundamentals really are crucial, even if you do graphic design and non-representative arts even. That said, keep up the studies, and consider the recommendations given to you!

    It's been a while since you updated man. Come on!
    I think you would benefit a lot from being more confident with values, and taking more time on things.

    Oki so it's been ages, longer than i realised and i have more stuff to add than i thought. first up

    a portrait fo my friends, one is tessa and the other diosa. Diosa is a stoner tessa canters everywere...

    rawr

    For a project i had to make a model that represented myself. Seen as i've been on quite a journey of self improvment i wanted to show how i've had to make do with whatever parts i could find.

    the head is what we call a 'rebin ball' were i work, the story behind it is i was put on rebin and had never seen a rebin before, i didnt really know what happend and so fucked it up royally. They kicked me off rebin and brought another guy in, he worked so fuckin hard it was crazy, really he was the kind of guy that busts his balls of every fucking day for any reason. When he left to go to uni he gave me the ball, and ever since then i've kept it to remind me to always work as hard as i can
    everything is worthy of effort.

    All my friends at college are brilliant at drawing figures from mind, so i have set on my journey of figure drawing, here is a quick catch up session.

    i begin, i suck

    rawr

    rawr

    i go and do some drawing from paintings in the local art gallery

    rawr

    and some from life

    rawr

    and then im a little better, a little!

    rawr

    Then i went to Berlin, when i came home i drew some of the things i saw

    rawr rawr
    rawr rawr

    Then my tutor said, maybe pencils holding you back try pen... so i did

    then i tried to pastel my sketch of the buskers, but alas! failure bites again

    Yo yo yo. Nice to see you are alive!
    Anyway, good update(s). Finally got round to doing them, so well done on that.
    I like the sketch you gave to the girl in berlin. It looks like it has nice lines, and you have gotten a better value range than most of your work.
    Which brings me onto the first image:
    rawr
    For this image, I reckon you should have spent longer in general, especially cleaning stuff up.
    Try using clipping masks onto silhouettes. This will mean your shape stays as you want, and you can concentrate on getting clean and correct values.

    The sculpture is way cool. Awesome idea, and it has a great story to it. I wish I could think like that, and tape random stuff together to make something like that!

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/5893240b.jpg
    Nice lines on this! I think you could have made some better choices though, such as leaving out a lot of the line (sleeve and hair). This would have made it work a lot better in my opinion.

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/c0db2902.jpg
    Looks promising, just not a large enough value range again. Check the histogram:
    rawr
    The shapes you are making seem great, and you seem to be using the right value steps, just with the wrong values (if that makes sense)

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...b038f1fc-1.jpg
    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/5d42d1dd.jpg
    I think for these you should spend a lot longer looking for proportions. Check verticals, horizontals and angles. I find it easier to look for the large outer shape, then work inwards. This helps me keep things the correct size in relation to each other. I'm not better than you at this, but I find my drawings come out a lot better when I do this.
    Again, nice lines though. Looks really confident.

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/f42384ff.jpg
    Just on a whole other level in my opinion. Really nice. Great lines, proportion and shapes. Great job.

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/b788a4d0.jpg
    This looks pretty good. I like how you have managed to simplify everything into simple 3d shapes. I think this helps you get proportion, perspective and eventually forms a lot better. Nice

    -overall - Nice lines in all of these.

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/9c377937.jpg
    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/228d656f.jpg
    Pen is better to use when learning, keep at it and I think you will see large improvement.

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/1ed90961.jpg
    I can't use or stand pastel to save my life, so no comment haha

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/5cb939ff.jpg
    Very nice! Is this from imagination?!? This is great. If you made the rock a dark value, it would be a really successful composition. Needs a larger value range again in my opinion, but it is still much better.

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/478a7fed.jpg
    Nice, I'm not a lover of abstracts, but this is good as there is a face. Abstract, but looks more planal (planes plane - al. I dunno how you spell it, but it looks like it is planes, and not just shapes, haha)

    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d7...9/d382fcd3.jpg
    Same comment about this as your other pastel painting. Although I like this one a lot more. Nice use of colour, it reads well.

    Sorry if I came across harsh, trying to help. Some nice progression in this whole sb, and you are improving a lot. Would love to see you update more frequently, and spend more time on each piece. Try doing a really finished piece!
    I love you, SSG 4 lyfe.

    ha! Look at these figure drawings!

    it is good to see that as soon as you start to focus on one topic, the figure, you improve immediately. very nice, especially the last two.

    full speed ahead, captain!

    Very expressive. Nice use of colour too.
    I would suggest thinking more before drawing, especially of which lines to put down.
    example:
    rawr
    Look at how I just took your lines and simplified them. I then put in hatching to show what overlapped what.

    I hope that helps.

    Digging your sketches. Might I recommend doing some longer studies? The sketches will only work out some of your drawing muscles, gotta work em all or you'll end up like one of those dudes from Jersey Shore with tiny legs.

    Improving really quick man, See what happens when you try hard and practice?

    Keep going you're on the right track, remember to apply what you learn so you dont do the same mistakes that I did.

    I'll make sure to give some more love in your sketchbook.
