    The Arty Smarty - UPDATED

    Go to the last page for the newest pics!

    Hello Ca!

    Although the time of year for this kind of thing is a bit predictable, I've decided to start a fresh, I need a new sketchbook (the old one is found dead in the depths of CA for those who know where to look).

    So the names Kyle Tobias Smart (Smarty), I'm 20 and to get to the point where I am now artistically has took little or no effort. Sounds great right!? no... I've grown lazy, my peers are starting to overtake me and I've realised through some specific threads and meeting a couple of specific people since my move to Bristol that to take it to the next level I need to step it up a couple of gears and just fucking do it! No more dreams of potential and broken promises of becoming a better artist, Its now on the intertube for all to see.

    Back to basics then.

    way to go! hope you keep it up, theres nothing worse than wasted potential. Im in pretty much the exact same situation youre in now, and ive been spending at least 2 hours each day doing some kind of excercise, be it drawing or painting on my wacom, hope you can keep it up, and if u havent, check out algenplflegers sketchbook for an extra fire up that ass! =)

    Great first post, keep it going and dont stop for nothing! =)
    Do a good deed, help me develop as an artist, give me a backbreaking crit in my sketchbook!

    nice gestures. If you're in that situation, try experimenting. be it colors, style, genre of characters or environments, etc. might help to get to the next level. Just a thought.
    Keep it up.

    good smarty, have a cookie.

    As ever man the quick drawings are a really good idea, but balance it up with some long ass studies!I'm talking a good couple of hours, bare minimum, on one single study. It may be worth it to concentrate on cleaning your lines up as well, like you were talking about the Chan Man being able to do. Try drawing in ink and getting the exact right line the first time.

    This is gonna be an awesome book dude, i can feel it in my bones.

    Looks good what you posted here.

    Personally I think you should go through some Sb if you need motivation.
    The fact that someone is always better and is able to make such great things really motivates me to do something. (AND SOMETMES I´M REALLY LAZY)

    Hope you reach your aims and that you´r able to level up.

    Nice work, I really like your pencil drawings. The fast figure drawings are good to do, but I agree that you should try to use more pen and/or colors. The wolf is good, but definitely not up to par with your other sketches. The arm study is pretty good though. Keep it up, and try out some more new things!
