    Hi!

    I'm looking for constructive crits because I'm always looking to improve. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to look and comment.

    I'm new at CA but I think it's a great site with a lot to offer!

    I don't want to post too much stuff at once but these are all done in the past few months.

    Hello there, welcome to CA!
    Figures and ideas behind them are good, but you´ll need to watch out for proportions. That guy with a stick, you had reference for that one?

    Nice start, post up some more!

    I didn't catch that my proportions were off. The first drawing especially. I did have a reference for the guy with the stick. He's a few months old but I do seem to remember struggling with the pose... That's why his one foot got cut off the page.

    Here's a few more:

    These are the 2 I posted in the "Draw from what everyone looks like thread". I've noticed that taking pictures of my drawings makes them look a lot sloppier than they do on paper. I'm wondering if it's an issue with my technique. I've never really been able to notice a difference when using different leads and generally I use a soft lead and blending stick (or my finger) but honestly I don't pay much attention to whether I pick up a 9B or 4B. Or maybe it's something else? Any advice???

    The upper torso needs to be more defined, the right shoulder looks rather bad, and the left side of her face is a bit misshapen. However, you did a good job on the values.

    Hi FightingSeraph! Thanks for the crit! I'll actually have to start over and redraw from scratch because I applied fixative (I thought I might have to but it was better than overworking it).

    The torso-more definition-I hate to sound stupid but do you mean the overall shape or the detail?

    The right shoulder-Too far forward maybe?

    Left side of the face-Yeah it's just... bad. I tried to find a reference but I couldn't find anything that was the right angle and I'm not sure I can define exactly what wrong... Is there too much there?

    I really tried to fix this stuff first before posting but even though I knew it was somewhat off I couldn't quite pinpoint why. Thanks again for taking he time to leave a comment!!!

    Hi there!

    So far the main crit I can do to your work is that your figures are lacking a well defined sense of form and structure. I would recommend you studying some Vilppu to improve on that, specially the pages where he teaches how to simplify the human figure using simple volumes (cubes, spheres, etc).

    Keep going!

    Thanks for the comments everyone!!!

    I was in a bit of a slump this week so I didn't get a lot done but I have been trying to finish 50 gestures for the Spartan Camp activity so hopefully I'll have that up tomorrow.

    And this is my Newborn entry if I get the guts to send it in (I know, I know, I better do it fast).

    I wasn't posting for crits before because, honestly it's my first painting in 15 years (and that was an intro class) so it was all I could do to try to figure it out as I went along. All things considered... I'm relatively happy with it, if for no other reason than that I learned a lot.

    A thumbnail:

    Feel free to crit. It's too late to fix much for Newborn but never too late to learn from it.

    Ok. I didn't go to bed early or go out drinking. I just started drawing again. 2 new WIPs, one from a photo reference and one from imagination.

    Hey there,

    great work in here

    Though, i think u would benefit a bit from doing some more studies (anatomy and colour and form etc). Don't give up and keep at it

    rock' on

    I think your Newborn is charming.

    Draw more from life to develop form, even still lives are fine if you can't get to life classes.

    One thing I see you doing that I need to say don't, is outlining the lips. Creepy, hard-faced women outline their lips so dark. You've handled the lips on the pic of your grandmother and mother much better. Suggest the shadows and the rest will fall in place.

    Draw from ref as much as you can, because I can see you're getting a handle on it, even with as few posts as you've done.

    Keep going......

    Granny-Thanks for your support... I haven't been here long but you've made a point to post here repeatedly and I appreciate it.

    Brun-Thanks for the comment. Ugh! Anatomy! I've drawn nothing but naked people and portraits for the last few years and thought I had it down but something new always comes along to challenge me. Someone suggested the Villpu book and I just got it in the mail last week so I'm going to read through it carefully and see if I can figure out my mistakes. Color is another matter... I haven't figured that out yet.

    Black Spot-Good advice! I have neglected that a bit. Life drawing has been difficult to get to but a still life is possible.

    Alesoun-I can't believe I missed that!!!! Thanks for pointing it out.

    I did some more work on this today:

    Honestly, I'm a bit frustrated. I had a bad day for a lot of reasons so I hope this won't sound too petty but... my Newborn pic sucks! I actually considered not entering it but I had worked so hard on it and I was hoping at the very least it was a chance for some constructive crits but I thought the peoples choice would be more of a poll (I was hoping for anonymity) but posting in a thread with everyone's awesome artwork is, quite frankly, a little embarassing. And the whole rating thing... I tried not to look but I'm at 1.3. Ouch! I mean, I don't think the piece deserves a higher rating by any means, in fact 1.3 might be generous but like I said-I'm having a bad day.

    Anyway, it was hard to find the motivation to draw today but I did. If anyone got this far in reading this post... thanks, I just needed to rant. Now I'll go draw and get better so I can not completely humiliate myself in the next contest.

    Whoa, some sexy themes you got there lady.

    I don't like the idea of criticising others arts, because I'm not much of an artist myself. But, I'll try.

    I don't know how you usualy practice your drawings, You draw prom live models, from pictures or you draw from your imagination? I guess your colors are cool, and your studies were fine as well. The problem that I see are the characters anatomy, but I can't speak much because mine ain't good either.

    I can only sugest that you get magazines, download pictures over the web and try to reproduce it on paper. Like I do. But artists a lot more experienced than me can disagree.

    Like I read everywhere, the important thing about drawing is that you can't stop. You must draw always to improve. Keep it up girl!

    I like your latest drawing very much. Don't be down hearted about the rating - I haven't rated anyone and don't think I'll bother. Your picture is naive and should be rated accordingly, just because it's expected that everything should be highly polished doesn't mean they are great art. Charm can be a big factor, but some people are too close to what they consider ideal, that they can't think any other way.

    Bombachado-Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.

    Black Spot-I can't thank you enough for saying that. It's been a rough week. Thanks for cheering me up and I'm really happy you came back!!

    This is now finished-not so much because I'm happy with it but because it has little black spots all over it. It was like my eraser exploded and when I tried to pick the pieces off they melted into the paper. Someday I'll atttempt to redraw this (this isn't my first attempt with this particular picture-but last time it was skill holding me back) but for now... it's back-burner.

    I'm torn between doing some Vilppu studies, finishing the other drawing I started last week and possibly trying this weeks very interesting CHOW. I'll probably work on all three at some point...
