    Menjah's plethora of crappy drawings :D

    Hello all! I'm menjah, AKA Liam Smyth, a 17-year old (I am now 18 ) living in Canada

    Seeing all the massive talent on this website has recently put me into serious business mode, and I've realized that if I want to keep up with all the amazing artists on this website I better draw all the time. I hope to follow in the footsteps of Miles, a 16-year-old prodigy, and Defiledvisions, another awesome young artist, and to look back after a few years of daily work, and say - Wow! I sucked XD

    Also, thanks to you both for keeping a record of your progress, not just deleting your old work when you don't like it anymore. You've really inspired me to work to get better!

    (Miles - http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...=97046&page=18)
    (DefiledVisions - http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=123016)

    So, assuming that I'm not just a talentless dope with aspirations of greatness and and an unrealistic vision, I present to you my crappy drawings ^__^
    Criticism is welcomed with open arms

    These are many of my older drawings, in order of age. I did the first ones when I was about 13-15. Unfortunately until recently I haven't drawn hardly at all for about 3 years, so I'm kind of at a disadvantage when I see some of the artists on this site D:
    Also, keep in mind that this is basically everything I did during that time (if It seems like I'm uploading all of my crap sketches lol)


    Looks like I'm going to have to multi-post, sorry!

    Skull Study.
    Far right ref: http://www.daviddarling.info/images/...skull_side.jpg
    Middle ref: http://poorreds.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/skull.jpg

    Left one I tried to do using the front and side views, it's a good way to get 3d things into your head. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out that well. Maybe I should have used reference lawl

    It took me like an hour to do these crappy little drawings. Boy do I need practice...

    Another today

    Man, this study took forever. Believe it or not, the crappy drawing on the left (stoned guy) took way longer than the girl on the right. There were so many more muscles shown in the diagram I used for him D:. I eventually gave up on shading him XD it was getting ridiculous. I should have focused on the directions of the muscles and not so much the shape, I really jumbled up all the lines >.<

    Btw, I'm not even going to TRY to do a 3/4 view, that would just be insane lolll

    but I learned a bit about faces lalalaaaaa

    I will do a side view later but for now I need to rest my arm, I have a cramp XD.

    Also, I think before I do it I will do something fun, like a monster or something

    Ps yes I know left guy is lop sided, can't fix it now lol

    Quick sketches of the day

    Done on the same day as my muscle studies...

    Doom monsters are copyright doom of course

    AND THEN JOHN FREEMAN DREW THESE AT SPEED OF LIGHT

    I drew them very quickly
    I was trying to get my 'strong confident lines' going, trying new style

    so they're not that good but o well

    Notice that I basically never drew any feet or hands... I should do a study

    Awesome. Dude, all of them are probably a lot better then I can do, and I'm 17 now.
    I just never have the time do draw anymore it seems. I'm busy all day with schoolwork because of my new classes etc. I hope I get the balls to start a sketchbook soon
    Great work

    Thank you! If you really want to see a good young artist look at Miles lol, he's leagues better than me. Yeah, I find the time to draw, but only because I do it during class XD I used to have really high standards for grades but now I'm just like lol whatever

    But, I think almost anyone can get really good at art, you really just have to be dedicated =)

    CANADA?!



    17?!



    One more weird thing like that, and I'll click right out of here

    Good studies of the muscles and anatomy and whatnot. The one of the head needs some work (the musculature of the neck--side view, etc)... The ear is too large, and the eye is set too far back into the skull there.

    More study will make those things pop out to you.

    You're working well here... just take it easy on sluffing maths If you're going into 3D graphics in college, it is pretty math intensive.

    Nah. Just the programming side.

    Anyway... keep this thing going. Canadian

    Thanks so much for your advice! I'm surprised you would bother with a crap artist like me XD

    Also, points taken. I will try and do more studies from now on, I really want to follow in the footsteps of Miles (If you didn't read that already), do stuff EVERY DAYYYYYY
    As for right now, my anatomy is really lacking. But it is mostly because A- I used to think that drawing with reference was cheating and B- I have never really tried to draw realistically, mostly I used to draw anime-type bodies, not really faces, but the simplified body shapes.
    Drawing all these different muscles are completely new to me D: I have a lot to master ^_^

    Math and physics come easily to me, all I really have to do is pay attention in class and I can get at least a B, I am lucky that way.

    I am amused by your canadian smiley

    Thank you! I know they're really bad but I need to get drawing faster! I wind up spending way too long sketching intricate details in things whilst not looking at the big picture, and I like the way the sort of gestural lines direct my drawings, even if my anatomy is currently completely crap (in 90 seconds anyways XP) But these are the kind of things I could do pages and pages of and not get tired

    You certainly have impressive 'crap' XD the quick sketches look particularly good.

    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
