    ▬►WELCOME!
    [09-Present]



    Hello, I'm Alex.
    I'm a junior in high school and have been trying to draw every now and then for the last six months.
    Hopefully, over time I'll get better. I really want to get serious so I'll improve.

    So, Please feel free to comment on anything I post.
    Suggestions for stuff/drawing exercises would be great too.

    Quick face for you all.

    Ignore the random mouth on her forehead and the random nose in her hair.

    Just another sketched face. Proportions are off a bit.

    The faces above look flat to me some how. I can't seem to pin down exactly why but I think it might have something to do with your tendency to work very lightly. Your lines are a rich black and in comparison to that the shading looks very close to white. I'm not sure but I think that might be an issue. Anyway, I really like the last piece, it seems very strong. That said it seems like it might have been even more interesting as a line drawing. Good luck and keep going

    I have nothing interesting to say but here's my sketchbook, perhaps you'll think I've drawn something interesting XD http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=167964

    Thank you a lot Strange. It did look a lot more interesting as a line drawing.

    Yeah, I really need to work on the form of the face.

    Here it is: [Lineart]
