    I love to draw and try to get better!

    Hello everyone!
    This is my sketchbook welcome!
    I'm 16 now 17 years old and I always liked to draw but I got "serious" about art one year ago. Since then I try to improve my artwork and get better at what I love.
    I like animation, Illustration and comics!

    Please take a look and feel free to critique me I'll appreciate it.
    Thank you for looking!


    PS: Recent stuff is on the last page
    I started this sketchbook when I was 15 but didn't post much, you can see some of the stuff on the first page.
    Most of the posts are from this year.

    ok, here are some "old" Character studies for something I'm work on right now
    I love to draw and try to get better!

    I guess my scanner hates me

    Alright, this one is something I did today because I had no ideas and since I can't draw feet to save my life I decided to learn that today (I drew this from my anatomy book)

    (I don't think anyone will read this but whatever)

    Okay, this idea was for 3-4 days in my head and now I decided to draw it, it was a little challenge for me, I think I'm going to color it digital later

    Not bad stuff so far, very cartoony and stylized. Ive seen the style in your imagery quite often, you've obviously took something from invader zim, maybe edd ed and eddy along with a few older cartoons. Its good that you're mixing them together. Im guessing youre into animation?
    However these all have roughly the same body type, try exaggerating characters features. Like give one of them huge arms and torso, or a odd nose.

    Hello,
    thank you very much for looking and commenting and for the critique.
    Yes, it's very "catoony", lol. But no I didn't take anything from Invader Zim or edd ed and eddy because I never watched them (okay I watched 3 episodes of IZ aaa).

    It's more from Spongebob and Flapjack, and then I evolved it into something of my own, and yea I took also something from the old cartoons.
    Yes, I love animation, ahaha.

    Thank you for the critique, I'm gonna try to do that! :-D

    I found in this Thread:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=191482
    a cool list:

    Draw the following noses into your notebooks from google images reference: Jackie Chan, Owen Wilson, Julia Roberts, Vigo Morgenstern, Alan Rickman, Telly Savalas, David Niven, Maria Bartiroma, Marilyn Monroe, and Dean Martin.

    Post them in your sketchbook.
    And even when I'm not the OP I decided to do that because it sounded like fun:

    Also I tried to do what Nonobot told me, but it didn't really work, here are some sketches:

    But I think I found something...

    Okay, I was playing a little with shapes(body and face)and thinking a lot about it and drawing (but I'm not gonna post everything here because most of it is shitty) and I came up with this... thing... uh...
    http://i936.photobucket.com/albums/a...Quail/derp.jpg

    Keep it up, you have the right idea playing with shapes like that, shape design is very important =)

    Check out this podcast that Steven Silver did. He's talking about a lot of things that helped him invent people from his head and manipulate shapes more.



    Also when using color I suggest you push the values more. The one you posted is looking very grey. I don't think you will mind I did a quick paint ova to show what I mean. Generally have either a lighter background and a darker character, or a darker background and a lighter character. My shadow shapes look bad but I think my point came across...

    Cheers!

    Hello,
    first: Thank you for looking and commenting. Thank you a lot.
    The video was very interesting to watch (or better to say, listen to). I'm gonna check his channel out!

    Of cours I don't mind!
    I'll keep it in mind and try to do it like you did, it looks really good, I want my coloring to look like this! °U°
    I'll try it out in my next digital practise drawing. Digital art is for me like a big mountain and I'm still at the beginning, aaaa. But I really want to learn how to do that (and also different traditional coloring!).
    Thank you!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Alright, some new stuff, lol.

    This one is because I wanted to draw and color something with colored pencils (), was fun. Those are two different drawings trown together.
    I love to draw and try to get better!
    Also: The girl in the pink dress is a redesign of my old character (one year), the character was baaad. BAD. But now I like how she looks (she is a villain 8D)

    And I found this blog (thanks to CA ):
    http://theartcenter.blogspot.com/201...of-shapes.html
    and I really wanted to try that out, so here:
    I love to draw and try to get better!
    It helped me to "lose" and get a little away from the faces shapes I always do, great practise! I'll do that a lot in the future + it helped me to find some new designs and stuff for what I am working on.
