    :::pissant's sketchbook: updated Mar 26th:::

    Well, I've finally done it, and you all get another beginner's thread to enjoy. Hopefully this sketchbook will mean that I'm motivated to draw daily, and maybe even improve a little. For the record, I'm 23, and the last time I took drawing classes was when I was 16, so please C&C me senseless.

    I'll start with eyes, because they're easier than hands. Half an hour, mechanical HB/2B pencil, and a mirror.

    Just trying to get a feel for the structure and proportions of the eye and the expressions it can make. Tomorrow I'll find some female brows to draw and do some ultra close-ups to further explore the eye's anatomy...

    Those eye came out nice. I am a begginer too, and what really helped me was drawing from life, mostly drawing my friends and family, and trying to get proportion. Anyways keep on going...

    Yesterday's sketches. Still need to work on my proportions, which you'd realise if I had the bandwidth to put the references up:

    I still feel that I need to be a bit looser with my sketching, but I'll keep at it. As ever, more to follow, hopefully tonight.

    You're definitely getting better pissant. Keep at it. Oh, and try some studies of other parts like noses and ears.

    Sincerely,
    Chris

    I agree; your larger studies are far more lifelike and expressive than you smaller, tighter drawings. Draw larger, that'll help with the tighness. Sometimes I draw in ballpoint pen to help myself loosen up; you just can't be as anal about things when you sketch in pen, because it'll get too dark to work on pretty quick. In that way, pen is also a good trainer for sketching quickly and moving on.

    Nice job: keep up the good work!

    I'm going through the same process you are, and you're kicking ass at it. Definitely improving as far as eyes go.

    Good luck to you!

    Oops. Been a little too long since I last posted. I'm not going to make any excuses, just try to draw at least an hour a day. Just a couple of little ones from the last week, trying to simplify anatomy down a bit, and do some different head angles.

    Decided to just pick up a magazine (Tatler in this instance)and draw, trying to make sure I get into the habit. You can see where I got tired on these ones...
