    :)

    This is a character i have been playing around with. Named Piku.
    Completely random. But somewhat amusing.

    Piku changes his look depending on his mood. This costume is inspired by Twiggy.

    Today

    Today i went and talked to the Dean of Media Arts and Animation.

    He gave me some pointers on how i can improve my drawings. He told me i need to draw with more of a sense of construction and form.

    So with that said he pointed out some books that could help me improve the quality and consistency of my work.

    I am deeply grateful for this critique because i didnt realize before that i was missing this piece of the puzzle.

    Through proper constructive technique i hope to one day have the ability to transpose a character into any perspective just by rotating its base components on various axis.

    Anyways. I need serious help with perspective, so I'm going to get some tutoring.

    If anyone has tips please let me know.

    I want to be the best, and i will just have to keep working hard. One day i will get there.

    -Jakeh

    He started kind of similar to you.. and he completely transformed his art into an amazing level... very inspirational for anyone that's willing to push it hard enough...

    Definately need to get working on anatomy. I highly recommend the books of Andrew Loomis, due to internet availability and the clarity of his teachings. Try Google his name, or better still, I'm pretty sure there is a site called saveloomis.org where you can download his books. Some others include George Bridgman, Burne Hogarth and Vanderpoel. Get studying from some of that material and you should be off to a great start. I also second rossipoo's suggestion, check out algenpfleger's productivity throughout his thread, a true example of what dedication can do (in fact I'm trying to copy his method [his productivity that is, not necessarily his style, though it is excellent]).

    Anywho, keep that mindset and keep up the good work! You're off to a nice start!

    more posemaniacs

    I did some posemaniac....again

    The pencil ones (vertical) are all 45seconds.

    The pen ones (horizontal) are all 30 seconds.

    I was more confident this time around.

    Hello lolbbq good start for your sketchbook man! Its really awsome to see the progression you make throught out your sketchbook life haha. Keep drawing man and keep visiting concept art you can learn and meet many amazing people that can help you on your art journey. As for your figures i suggest starting out at the key point of the figure (head) (torso) and (pelvis).

    Until next time -Omerta

    That last set of pose maniacs shows some major improvements, for one you lost those non-reassuring sketchy lines. I can also tell the gesture of each figure which is great. Keep it up man.

    You should try saving up all of the drawings you do in the day and then upload them on a night or something, you need to give people time to comment Be patient when drawing, posemaniacs are helpful at the start for form but remember not to rush other works, and also be patient when thinking about becoming successful; it takes years and years to become a good artist. It'll take hard work and patience

    Thanks for the insight guys! I have Life Drawing 1 coming up this next quarter, as well as color fundamentals. So it should be interesting.

    Here's some advice, instead of sitting around waiting for someone to say something or crit. Take a look at your own work, your mistakes are noticeable I am sure you know yourself what's wrong with your drawings. I am also sure you can find a solution on how to improve and fix your drawing. I know you're just beginning but you can't expect someone to solve your problems for you all the time, and with that good luck don't let something small like this stop you from drawing.

    OK here are my 3 words of wisdom ;>

    It is great that you want and probably will in the future, show that determination and hard work can have amazing results and talent has nothing to do with it. Those talented guys just see thing different from the start they have the ability to quickly adapt improving themselves faster than normal people do, but thats not an obstacle for you as far as i can see and thats GREAT!

    You will probably hear this alot and all over CA or any other sites like this, to improve you must simply must do alot of sketching, color studies, perpsective studies etc.
    The thing is you must start from basics, draw as many things from life as you can and whenever you can, and try to define thing you are drawing by least strokes as possible, just keep it recognazible. Your sketches can be as roufgh as you want them to be, you don't have to show them to anyone just keep them for yourself. Then Observe and think what can you done better, the skill of observation is also very important here, you must realize what you did wrong and try to fix it or do it right next time. Ofcourse this will come with time, not a single person was born ultra wise knowing everything, learning is a natural process with just one rule, some do it faster some do it slower.
    By any means do not give up! I'm also quite a beginner myself and trust me i had moments of me being proud of myself just to turn "Oh my i suck so hard" next day. As i said do not stop by any means. I can suggest leaving the digital stuff for a while and focusing on pencil/charcoal/ink sketches for now (like few months) If it's possible go to lifedrawing lessons, anatomy study whie observing it from life will make you a better artitst, trust me with that. Also fing all your weaknesses and fight them, for example if you know you suck at drawing hands draw 1000 of them until you feel them look right.

    So quickly reasuming what i said above:
    - Do daily sketches it can be everything, your hands feet, dishes etc.
    - Go to lifedrawing lessons,
    - Draw Draw Draw! all the time
    - Go have icecream :>

    Hope that was usefull, keep yourself motivated to work and one day you will reach your goal, you can be sure it wont be quick nor it wont be easy to achieve but trust me it is freaking worth it!

    Best wishes, Ice
