    The "Band Wagon"

    Hey, I'm Conner H. I'm 17 waiting to attend college where I'll be doing Art & Design. I hope to find a career in Art/Design, I find it hard to progress I'm losing face.


    This is just an unfinished batman piece, I wont be finishing it.
    The "Band Wagon"

    The second is a failed CHOW piece.

    Hay man! you should post more often The batman is looking good, only his face needs more reds, now the skin looks rather dead to me. You should also start drawing from life or ref, and studying anatomy. Keep it coming!

    cheers mate!

    Erm, first update in too long. This is the beginning of me posting more often.

    Excuse the quality I don't have a scanner. And the damn phone is 2Megapixels so it's pretty crappy.

    Just some crap... I want to improve but, I find it hard to draw just to draw. I need reason. And drawing like this isn't within reason.

    I understand what you mean. But drawing just to improve is really hard. I need a reason for that actual drawing. To be honest I don't know what to draw. Or what type of effort to dedicate to that piece:

    Should I Draw real objects at full quality with every single drawing?
    Should I draw Real objects at sketch quality?
    Draw fictional characters at full quality?

    I have no idea, just kind of lost. I don't know

    don't get discouraged...
    i totally understand what you mean when you say drawing is so much harder when it's just to improve. it almost seems like a waste of time. but as we know, it isn't. i find, and i know everyone's different, that as soon as i lay the pencil/stylus down and make my first marks, it brings me in immediately. the tough part is actually sitting down and deciding what to draw. i like to watch tv until i get excited about something, like i was watching a WWII documentary and all of a sudden wanted to draw a sniper...

    find what works for you, you have the ability. if you find long drawings more satisfying, do those. if you get impatient and want to start something over/new, do that.

    whatever route you take, it's going to take time. do fan art of metal gear solid if you have to, but do something. it keeps your motivation going and your mind fresh to constantly be producing SOMETHING. good luck, hope this ridiculously and unnecessarily long post helps.

    KonnA,
    you signed up to ConceptArt and started a sketchbook - thats a start! Use it as a reason to draw! Give yourself the challenge of posting 3 times a week (or more). You don't work? That gives you even more time to draw.

    I promise you, practise practise, practise - it is the only way to become the best. And even when you have got your career, you will still want to improve.

    My suggestion, is start by taking a subject, say Batman, and break him down into all of his anatomical forms. Spend a week learning the proportions of the body, another for the head, another for the hands. Understand the anatomy. Draw him in different poses. Learn how clothes drape over the body. Throughout the process, you will have a plethora of small sketches which will all help you in creating a bigger, more detailed image. With time, you won't need to rely on source material as much.
    I love Tea and Toast!!

    Thanks for the motivation guys ai REALLY do appreciate it. I mean I know almost 99% of other artists and such are like me. They just get lost sometimes. I mean at this point in my life im thinking about the rest of it. Not about now, it's hard to focus on something and stick with it, your scared that you'll waste your time. And then it'd be to late. It's all fear really.
