    Here's a sketch using the wacom, im really starting to get used to it... after a while it feels more natural. Also does anyone know what the best settings are for an Intuos2?

    its probably a bit early to offer any specific crits - the most important thing is to keep doing what youre doing. Drawing as much as you can as often as you can. Thats the hard part, but eventually you'll get where you want to go.

    good luck

    Haven't posted anything in a while, ive been busy alot lately... but anyways here are my latest sketches, im starting to play around with the shadows and reflections, the top scetch being a new mini mixed with a horrible looking bodykit that went wrong lol, second a Skyline R34 and the last an S13 Silvia drift machine and a few more scetches under that.

    I wasn't confident enough to add reflections and shadows on the body of the S13 so I left it as is until I get better....(ive lost too many good scetches trying to add more detail)

    Sorry for the quality of the scetches... I had to use my digital camera coz my scanner doesn't want to work.

    c&c welcome :chug:

    A few sketches I did tonight, im starting to practice more because I really enjoy drawing/sketching stuff. The only problem I see is that my lack of understanding of the mechanics behind drawing such as anatomy, perspective, shading and all that stuff makes it hard for me to express my ideas on paper. But anyway im going forwards not backwards right?

    use reference for drawing cars - particularly the wheels - until you get good at it. When drawing wheels in profile you seem to have a huge problem with using childhood symbols to draw them at the moment. This results in wheels which are about 2-3x too big and would be pushing through the car shell in quite a big way in real life. Remember that a wheel is a circle, and that if you only draw the bottom half of the circle, the top half does still exist.

    Use reference photos!

    Heres something I just did a few mins ago, im practicing some perspective (I never learnt any of that stuff), i'll be purchasing "Perspective Made Easy by Ernest Norling pretty soon because ive heard some good reviews about it... and hopefully I can learn something from it and learn to control my drawings and refine them.

    Thanks for the tips sixBlade :chug: I will do more practice on the circles... and wheels

    My drawings suck I know... thats why im trying to get better, as of last night I started to play around with basic shapes etc instead of starting the drawing without any basic structure etc. But anyway here are some sketches, you might recognise the house and the girl hanging on the tree. Guys I know my drawing are far from great but im still learning and trying to develop my skill, so if you have any comments/crits, good or bad it doesn't matter I wanna hear them im all ears

    Apart from everything else I need to work on faces/heads because I have no clue how to draw them properly.

    I coloured my sketch of the gasmask guy, it was a quick rushed job so nothing too flashy.

    A few more sketches I just sketched... Im having a go at anatomy as you can see, the proportions are wrong.. but thats why they are called sketches

    I went for a more realistic look with the shadows and stuff on the second one.

    aaah. it seems loads of people have trouble drawing hands and feet, I've got a lot better at drawing hands, my feet ain't bad but I could improve in certain stances. Lip's and eyes-well you can get away with making these features really simplictic, it usually helps, what I did was to practice drawing my own features using a mirror, or even try drawing your own hands in different positions-that helps.

    Sorry I couldn't be of much use...

    I've just started a sketch book on here the other day, its a good way to keep me drawing everyday!

    Happy Easter everyone, here is a small update.

    I have ordered Perspective Made Easy by Ernest Norling and How to Draw the Human Figure (Watson-Guptill Artist's Library) by Jose Maria Parramon from amazon. Has anyone here read these two books?

    Just having a bit of practice with a felt-tip pen, are felt-tips ok to use or is there something else that artist's use?

    I used a reference for the aliens and the eyes/lips, the eyes and lips from the manga techniques book.

    It's been a while since I last updated, so here it is.

    These are just some quick sketches, it took about 30mins to do the page. The finger on that middle girl is'nt looking that great.

    Ok so I had a bad drawing day today I was just getting frustrated with trying to design stuff from my head, So I started sketching from references which pretty much stopped the frustration. I guess drawing chicks calms me down

    Comments + Crits welcome.

    Perspective made easy and How to draw the human figure arrived a few days ago.. so ive been reading through them both. I highly recommend them both, they are very helpful.

    Anyway here are a few sketches, the last two are drawing exercises from the how to draw the human figure book. Does anyone use the 8 cannon technique to draw figures?

    I really should be sleeping since I have classes tomorrow, but right now im trying to learn how to paint properly... this piece isnt finished..

    I was just trying to learn how to correctly pick colours. I did cheat a little and used the eyedropper tool to see how accurately I picked the colour... stay tuned because I want to finish thise one

    I would have tried to finish it tonight but its getting late so enjoy.

    P.S.. how do you guys pick out the correct colours? Do you sometimes use the eyedropper to check if your selections are accurate?
