    Sketchtastic!

    Hey guys, So im jumping in hehe yea i haven't been drawing long but its a lot of fun and i hope one day i can get paid for it heh. Ive been drawing about 2 years now, reading a lot of books and drawing whenever i can. the only thing i wish i could do more of is life drawing, ive only ever had 1 life drawing session and that was just a 1 time thing, there pretty hard to find around here.

    PLZ SKIP TO THE LAST PAGE FOR THE MY LATEST STUFF

    All my troubles are in my latest posts this page is irrelevant, help me by skipping it.

    When you add a comment there's a bunch of icons above the text box. The ones that's a Globe and what looks like a little chain link gets you there.

    Nice start. Your from imagination heads are nearing conehead status there, though.

    thumbnail is the first attached pic : )
    keep sharing man,
    and the back muscles you didnt like so much are not so bad,
    And with the heads you have been doing, there seems to be a recurring problem of making the fore heads too big, and just having the eyes too low on the nose in general
    keep it up man

    Tried to do the coolest of all dinosaurs, the velociraptor. I drew from a picture but i didn't want to just copy the picture, im sick of trying to draw photos exact and not learning anything but how to copy, so i just layed down some shapes and tried to understand a little about what i was drawing, turned out being way off from the pic and pretty bad in general but i think i learned more about how to construct it then if i spend 3 hours trying to just copy it from the photo.

    This was my first time trying to draw any lizard type creatures and i ran into a big problem that i knew i would have to face one day...The scales. man there so hard. Anyone got any advice on doing scales so they look good but can be done pretty quickly?

    This took around 20 mins.

    More to come.

    Working from photographs can be beneficial if the lighting is good. Try to use photographs with a good value scheme. nice rich darks and distinct highlights.

    Making good art is neither quick or easy, at least for most of us anyway, lol. Just keep drawing, because you seem to be on the right track with the work shown so far. And I'm guessing you're still fairly young, so there's plenty of time to improve if you continue the studies you're currently doing and learn from them.

    Might I suggest that at this early stage, study anatomy and perspective as much as you can, since those will be the major building blocks for any drawing done from imagination. Once you have a solid grasp on them, then you can move on to the other fundamentals like value, color, composition, etc.

    Looking forward to seeing more, so keep up the good work!

    What i ment to say was is there a better way to draw scales then just trying to draw every one of them, there must be a faster way to get the effect?

    Btw ty for your comments, and i really agree, ive been thinking about it a lot and i know at some point im going to have to know my anatomy very very well. Every bone and every muscle. I am planning on getting into that very soon lol

    Wow such a crappy day, i spend like 5 hours or so doing stuff studies on paper, and went to scan and i remembered i forgot to install my scanner, so i try to install the drivers and i get some weird cannot find INF file error. So i say fine i will take a picture and put it on my PC, and i plug my camera in and my computer doesn't detect it, so i figure ive got some problem with my PC using some usb devices... i will have to figure it out somehow.

    Anyway i did a apple, this is all for today because of the devices errors .

    More later.

    love the studies keep it up and great sketchbook.
    for your necks, watch the thickness of those muscles and tendons and such. look in the mirror and flex one of your own and you'll notice they're much thinner

    Focus more on gesture and structure, before rendering, in fact you should do that even before studying anatomy
