    A youngster's sketchbook.

    Hello, my name is Marth I recently became serious about art and came on the recommendation of Ragemario/Rage28(I don't know which name he goes by here). I'm only 15 so my work isn't so great due to a lack of experince. But I hope to improve all the same.

    Now on to the pictures, there aren't that many because most are in a large 18 by 24 size pad which is to large for my scanner, so I will take pictures of my sketches and upload them later.

    This is a drawing from I did from a virtual model.

    The younger you start, the better you'll get.

    Anyway, so far, you've got great gesture lines and your anatomy ain't half-bad either. I'd like to see more! Especially more figure drawings.


    Here is my sketchbook: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=166026 Check it out, yah?

    Hey, for a first post this is pretty good. Draw draw draw! That's the only way to improve. The late great Chuck Jones said that all artist have about 100,000 crappy drawings in them before they get to the good ones. Keep practicing and using those virtual models or real models. Good work, keep it up!

    Well hello everyone. Long time no see, well I see we have a new upload system an each time I try to upload my pictures it makes my internet close out of its self. So I had to upload using imageshack I apologize and I'd like to fix this problem as soon as possible so can some one tell me who to contact about fixing this problem? Now onto the drawings, their not so great as you can see I'm sorta in an art funk currently and it's not fun at all.

    Nice stuff, you're showing that you know how to draw in planes in some of those (i.e. the nose), which is good! Keep up the studies

    You're in a lucky position mate. You're 15 you know what you want to do, and you have a great resource to benefit from.
    IF you don't have them already I can't recommend enough to get Loomis' books, as well as hogarth and bridgeman. Peck's anatomy is also good and if you can find vilpu's stuff it's also good. It seems like alot but just pace yourself and try and pick out what really helps you understand anatomy from these great teachers.
    Thinking back to when I was your age, I think my biggest problem was not thinking about volumes and forms, therefore my drawings always appeared flat. Thinking of the human body as spheres, cylinders, and boxes can really help with this.
    Not sure if you've heard of http://www.posemaniacs.com it will really help train your hand eye coordination while learning human form. It's a great way to warmup or study.
    I shall give more advice later, perhaps we can keep each other in check
    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook.

    Ha great start! i wish i got my shit together at 15! Just remember Marko D started about then! Draw a little everyday!

    Watch out for your drawings leaning over. Make sure your page is propped up facing directly your line of site, not on a flat horizontal plane. Also get a hand mirror and loko at your drawing in a reflection every now and again, the lenaing will be come more aparent to you, so you can fix it.

    Hey man you're doing good! Personally I hate sketching from imagination because it is so horribly difficult!!! These are from imagination right?

    Like the other guy said - study perspective and construction. Vilppu is great with the construction but if you wanna get really good you need a strong doze of perspective as well. You don't need this mathematical perspective(yet), just the basic rules, they will get you FAR!!
    Always think about perspective, CONSTRUCT the perspective. (If you're drawing from observation you sometimes have to trust your mind(and your contructed perspective) rather than your eyes!)

    Always remember - YOU'RE the master! Really - in your own drawings, YOU'RE GOD!!!

    Hopes this helps... Keep drawing...

    Well folks I'm back, and With some conte sketches, my women still look like men so that's why I've turned to studying the female figure more now. I still can't get the upload system to work so these are attached with IMG tags again. Still asking does anyone know who I am to contact about the upload system not working? Well comments and criticism are appreciated as always folks. Also my scanner butchered these please forgive me for that. Also the female is from the "them bones" topic(well thename is something like that) So credit goes to the creator of that topic for the originial sketch(this was done purely from memory, I have a rather acurate memory).

    Great work here! You'll progress even faster if you try doing lots of simple form studies....spheres, cones, cylinders. Grab an egg and a lamp and really study how light falls across the form. You'll find that when you go back to drawing people, all of those simple forms are present and that it's a lot easier to convey a sense of depth and volume. I wish I could help you with your image attachment problem, but it's working fine for me. What browser do you use? I use Firefox...

    Well I forgot to update here, well here we go(also my scanner butcher's everything so you can't see the shading on my portrait).

    Also I can't use the upload system again, maybe it's because I'm using that dinosaur IE6

    You have a serious advantage, starting this stuff at 15. Just keep going, don't stop, and within a few years you will see large improvement. Don't bother getting discouraged, just work harder.

    fantastic - just keep working out those figures. i didn't barely touch figures when i was in highschool - also start to practice line quality specifically. it'll make your strokes more confident. look up 'contour drawings' etc - cheers bro ))

    A youngster's sketchbook. I really need to get myself down to barnes and nobles, or borders and pick up a copy of Hultgren's book.

    Keep it up! You're getting into that age where you are easily distracted by a million other things in life. Make sure to always leave a little room for artwork, or you'll find yourself looking at this site one day thinking "I wonder how good I would be if I had kept drawing."

    Edgar Allen Poe portrait attempt. focused mainly on blocking the main features, no other geometric solds were used. Also it was mainly drawn so that I could practice drawing someone other than me. Oh also like I said I focused on blocking the features, not the clothing, so they are just there not really drawn though.

    A youngster's sketchbook. Just some Bridgman inspired heads this time, drawn in charcoal, although I would've prefered a conte. I'm working on being less heavy handed.
    Oh and I dunno if this counts, but that pixelart in my avatar I made few months ago, if anyone's interested I can link you to my pixeljoint gallery aswell.
