    Is ja schon mal ein guter Anfang für ein Skizzenbuch ^^
    For face proportions, construction and getting a better grip on the 3dimensional shape of the head you could take a look at Loomi's "drawing the head and the hands" which is freely available online
    I just took a break to post this.
    But sometimes I also draw stuff

    15?-verdammt gut. versuch am besten so regelmäßig wie möglich was zu uploaden, dann stellt sich der erfolg schnell ein(zumindest galub ich das, ich probiers grad aus^^)
    ich benutze auch manchmal ne kamera, mein scanner ist für n arsch^^, naja ich glaube ich bin zu dumm ihn zu bedienen.
    also ich kann mich nur dem "wi2rd" anschlließen "just keep drawing", hast ja noch ne menge zeit.

    Will sobald wie möglich was sehen! ach noch was: kannst du mir den link von loomis büchern geben?-danke schonmal

    hey man if you want to get better at anatomy i'd recomend trying to find a life study class and also i'd recomend experimenting with the way you draw etc
    Oh and one of my favourite activities to get you drawing if you have a block and also to help you improve line work and anatomy is Posemaniacs.com
    Keep Drawing !

    Hey man. You're best shot of improving quickly is to upload your work regularly and use the feedback and critique you get from other artists to improve...that is the point of the Sketchbook section. Hope you post soon.

    Thanks for your nice words Lyno .... i wish I could draw faces better .. but there is only one way... practise !!

    I am really disappointed that my scanns lost so many details which are normaly to see in my Sketchbook
    But taking photos failed cause the flash of the camera is reflected by the paper .. and shots without flash are to dark

    Good to see you are committed to improving your skills, looks like you are going about it the right way! I saw that someone recommended a Loomis book, that is good advice. Loomis and George Bridgman both have written several books on figure drawing that help simplify the human body into simple shapes and forms. You have a good grasp of form in some of your studies from life (spoon, lighter, eraser, etc.) that can be used to draw people accurately as well. Keep at it, good work!

    Self portraits are hard. You have to get used to your face being the same as everyone else's. x ) At least, I did.

    Really like the spider one. The terror looks almost real in the eyes.
    If you have the time, please stop by my sketchbook, Chock Full o'Nuts.
    I would appreciate any advice or critiques.

    You have a good grasp on the muscles. But the proportions are usually off.

    Just more practice, you'll definitely get there

    Hello!

    Ahh fresh meat!
    Thanks for the post man!
    Im glad to se your doing some studies. Its always good to doodle ofcourse but really kick yourself in gear and do teady stuff like draw chapes. Without drawing lineart, just look at stuff and draw the shadows. It gonna make you grow fast. Theres always good to draw poses and box characters in different angles and poses. Fast ones just to get the hang of basics.
    Power on soldier!

    Nice to meet you Strassenpenner08

    Looks like you are starting out nicely with your material. One main hint draw figures from life as much as you can. Draw your family members, friends, people around town like at the park. Also draw just shapes and fast gesture type figures that can help loosen you up. Anyways just keep drawing and keep a daily sketchbook. I really didn't start that till my 20's myself. Well carry on!

    Hay skippy!
    Box characters are characters out of boxes but more like figuredrawing with the use of boxes to nail proportions. hope that explains it for ya!
    And damn right you should draw from life. And without lineart! Ill pop back in when I see some!
    jetzt Arbeit. schnell!

    I'd say to start doing quick sketches of muscles/skeletons, keep up with the basic shapes from real life... but this is what I have to do myself, haha.
