Its been quite a while since i first registered here and im what they call a lurker... its about time i start getting serious and start drawing! Im far from the standard of really anyone on this website but i am determined and head strong that one day ill be able to draw with the best of you. I honestly have found so much inspiration and knowledge from this site and thank you all for everything.
So now to my artwork, this is all of last years stuff and as you can see theres not much of it or to it for that matter. As you will be able to see i wasn't very consistant but here it goes and be expecting constant updates from me

More from last year
And the last 2 days, time to start draiwng more
Take a black n white photo of a face or something, tape it to the paper and try to copy it as good as you can. First with line, then the tones. This helps a lot, because you have the reference and the drawing right next to each other. And draw lots!!
Yeah i just need to get some graphite sticks or something to render
Rendered face of girl
Thats much better!! Take an HB or B Pencil and Crosshatch the tones, try not to smudge at all. You can do this later on, but for learning to tone stuff its better not to do. This can take a lot of time but its worth it!!
In starbucks I spend around 5 to 15 minutes on each one, depending on how interesting the pose is and how long the people remain in that or a similar position.
Small update... yes ive been lazy but ive started with bridgmans book
Good stuff man, keep up the observational drawing!
I see a lot of progress in the last updates
so keep your stuff.
And dont let the laziness win
Very small update
Nice progression so far, It's really cool how you approach drawing and shows improvement. I'm gonna 'lurk' more often on this sketchblog

good start man . I can see the progress already, just keep going!
btw watch out with the proportions. 1 thing to remember ; length from head to crotch is around 4 heads.
Cheers for that. I seem to struggle with proportion. thanks for the visit
Completely disregard the drawing on the left for your own well being

Those were cool weapon designs, from post #18. I'd like to see some more of those, did you use any references?
Strings: I used reference for the first one but not the second piece
Heres a little dump as ive been inactive for a while, Also im really looking for something to motivate me, to keep going, to push the boundaries, RARGH you all dont know how much i love looking at your stuff and wishing i could be just as good but im god damn to lazy.
Update, negative space drawing and a cow:
thanks for the post, i can already see a big improvement from your first stuff. i guess just keep drawing and drawing! i think i'm at the same stage as you, so i definitely understand your frustration, use your sketchbook as your motivation. the more you draw, the more attention you get! keep it up.
Jose824: Yeah never really thought about the whole more posting means more views because never get that many views but thanks for the awesome positive
I shall now draw more
First attempt at painter and my tablet *sigh*
Started using painter and now im sort of addicted i mean its so much fun heres a WIP
Quick Still life
Painter was heck fun when I was learning it. Check the vids with Ryan Church, lots of tips. Try to look and focus on a subject matter that may interest you, it could spark the motivation. Your animal sketches I like, keep it up. and thanks for dropping by my SB btw.
hey that subject interests me also! lol
