    Faytez's Sketchbook of To-Be Wondrous Art

    IF BORED, SKIP TEXT AND SCROLL, SCROLL, SCROLL. Start at last page too, while you're at it. Maybe I even improved. =O

    Hi everyone! I'm Nicole, or Faytez if you want to call me that. I'm a 14 (now 15) year old girl living in Canada who've been lurking for the past few weeks. Hopefully in the future, I'd be attending an art school in California , but I need some help getting there, as my skills aren't exactly impressive. That's where you come in, and yes, I'm looking for critiques and advice, no matter how harsh it is.

    Anyways, right now, I want to improve my human drawings, since I've always avoided those before. I'll try my best to update daily, so you better make the effort and look through my sketchbook. >D

    A sketch from a while ago that I touched up. Again with no references, but I spent more time on this.

    With no knowledge of anatomy, it doesn't look that amazing does it? ._.

    I'll make some studies today if I have the time.

    I'm sort of curious as to why you're drawing without refs, if it's simply from a lack of anything interesting check out characterdesign.com under photosets. There's a ton of great stuff and even though it's only pictures it's still more helpful than nothing and taking time with them should really help your figure drawing. The lines also look uncertain in both pieces but that's something I have trouble with myself. Best of luck.

    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

    It's basically because I can't find any pictures that'll be a good ref. That site is amazing though. I used one of the images on there for a 20 -30 minute sketch ((attached))

    Mm...Thanks for the advice! And does anyone have a good anatomy learning site? One with diagrams of skeletons and muscles? That'll be very helpful.

    XD for anatomy you probably can't do much better than some of the stuff on CA. Check out fine art and discoveries and look at the book of bones. nit only useful, beautiful too.

    Posemaniacs.com is a neat little site. You might find that interesting.
    But yeah, check out so books, or if you're in school, ask your science teacher if they have a skeleton in their closet you can look at.

    I'll browse CA some more. ^_^ Thanks!

    And Acisej, I love posemaniac now. I've drawn four figures with its help. -attached- ((It's numbered in the order it was created))

    I'll take a look at some books too, and I've seen a skeleton in the science closet before, so I shall take a closer look. Thanks!

    Some sketches of my hand. Each took around 15-20 minutes maybe?

    I think that's all I can squeeze out today. I still have math homework to do for tomorrow. -sighs- High school sucks.

    I had to stay home sick today, but at least I have time to draw?

    Not much motivation to make me pick up the tablet pen, but I did manage to sketch a little, and draw some random pictures.

    Does anyone have any advice or anything? I'm not really sure what I'm doing, since I'm just sketching random things.

    The work with your hand for reference is great, keep it up one suggestion with the figure drawing though; you might want to try to construct the figure rather than doing contour drawings. The contour is great but for me I understand more of the form if I work deconstruct the figure into the shoulder/hips/spine/hips ect as rough shapes and then flesh it out from there. Again, great work.

    Thanks Lapada, I'll try to draw daily. Hopefully I'll be as good as you one day. =)

    And thanks strange1900 for the advice. I'll try to use more shapes to make the figures. I'm just not sure where to put all the shapes to use it to construct a figure, but I'll do my best.

    I think that's all I'm going to draw for today. -tired-

    I was hooked on MLIA today, since I was home sick yet again, and have only just realized that I didn't draw anything. -shock-

    And so I whipped up a little sketch. The eyes and noses were drawn without a ref, but the rest were.

    Oh, and if you were wondering why all of the sketches are on photoshop, it's just because I don't have a scanner, and finding my camera all the time takes a long time. Yea, I'm lazy, so sue me. ._.

    I decided to not use a ref today, so...here you go.

    I think I'd probably go back to using photos and live references again, since well, I still need a lot of work.

    Sorry for all of the little posts by the way. I just never know when I'm finished for the day. I'm very tired right now, but later, I might find the inspiration to sketch something else.

    Hand bone structure.

    I swear, bones are the hardest things to draw. @_@
    I...don't know if I should add in the names of the little bones in a clump there, and decided not to, since there's no chance I'm actually going to remember them.

    Thanks strange1900! I'll just keep practising until I can get it...as perfect as I can get it.

    Update for today. I doubt I'm going to draw more, since I just had my last art class, and I'm tired.

    P.S. The giraffe in the suit is a quick doodle that one of my best friend suggested.

    Edit: Looking back at this a few hours later, I found out that the second hand looks really awkward. Oops. @_@

    Taking a break from figures, and attempting to "paint", but failing epically. We all have to start somewhere right? Any pointers? They would be very appreciated. ^_^

    Hey that is one tasty looking pear! Nice figure studies you have here, I don't know if you already seen it but the books by Andrew Loomis is just super great. Figure drawing and all the rest of the books he made have at least helped me so much.
    Keep up your hard work!

    Thanks Alexson and Bombur! I'll take a look at those books too. I need all the help I can get.

    This apple...I was have a hard time blending the colors together, so I just decided to leave it. (I also have some homework to do, so I can't use more time)

    I was just in a rendering mode today instead of figure studies again. xD

    20-30 min eye. I used a ref.

    Lips. =)

    The biggest problem that I have is tying them all together to make it look like a face though. -sighs-

    Anyways, it's midnight now, so I'm off to sleep. I'll try to draw as much as possible tomorrow, since I'm going to miss five days after that.

    x3 I woke up a few mins ago, and decided to work on anatomy things again.

    Arm muscles, used a ref. (ignore the tiny hand please.)

    Well, I'm back now, with a face full of bug bites and all. I just sketched a few things for an update here. I think I need more arm studies, since the ones attached still look rather awkward.

    I think I'm a little stiff with my lines, so I sketched 15 minutes worth of 30 second poses. (Thanks posemaniac!) It was intense.

    I drew a few of these figures (without refs) to just practice using more fluid lines and practice making the proportions right. There're more than just the two that I'm attaching, but I'm not happy with the others. If anyone has any helpful advice or critiques or just a general hint, that'll be amazing, since no one's commented for the past...8 posts.
