nice work with those last few. As kiwigarbage says it is good to get the general shapes down first to see any obvious differences in proportion. The Biraffe is awesome, although one thing I've noticed is that the back legs are different lengths. The "knee" of both is the same height from the ground but one is at an angle, so when straightened would be a fair amount longer.
I try to draw and then when I'm almost finished I compare things that should be approximately the same length in the same position.
Its all looking great apart from that little thing though. The fruitrate is great too - very original
lol @ that giraffe, epic.
I think you might want to go darker in shading on some of those, though I'm not sure since I don't have whatever you're drawing from.
And I think I'm going to have nightmares from the vegetable guy. Honestly the scariest villain anyone has ever painted/drawn on this forum. I think I'm going to go hide ;(.
Rebecka- haha thanks oh I hope so too, will do my best as always! more ideas for animal splits?
Thomas- yea oh thanks, didn't see that until now. good that I have a couple of other eyes here to look too. you get blind in ur own work. I will try to do that too, compare. take care
Deadly- haha. your probably right, or most likely. I tend to not push my darks so much. But Im aware of this and will work with it as time goes. hahaha yea he does look scary ^^ I agree. cheers m8, thanks for stopping by always.
Bethany- thanks. good critique and good tips. Will absolutely think about this. I can see how it would look better.
A quick sketch from a photo of Marilyn M. And I know you shouldnt start off like this, but I will not finish this just because of the start. Just wanted to scribble something yesterday when I had some minuets over for art. Will draw the mouth too but thats it probably.
Its hard cause I know all these things I should practice on but alot of those things I dont feel like doing. To this point Ive almost only drawn things that I have wanted to draw not that I should have. But now when I start artteacher class I will most likely need to draw things that I need to. Maybe this is good, we'll see.
I saw the last airbender yesterday, will draw something from that movie and something from the series too. its a good way to get inspirtation by watching movies
Well, deciding not to practice what will help you to improve, just because it's not what you want to do, is your prerogative. Just means it's gonna take you that much longer to get where you want to be
Biraffe is fun!
Aye buddy, gotta practice things you hate in order to improve. I say just grit your teeth and go through some of those things...but do more drawing of things you particularly enjoy. I'm getting to the point where I enjoy drawing a character as much as I do a pipe in an industrial landscape. O_O
you have to practice things you don't really feel like doing sometimes. For example I used to draw eggs at one point, and still would consider doing it today. So mind-numbingly boring but you can learn a lot about light from doing tedious studies like that.
Oh and WHAT THE Sh%T! that marily monroe drawing was looking really strong man - off to a great start. There is evidence of a definite pencil level up from that piece so just keep on working away
Kiwi- yea m8 I know, just saying Im having trouble sitting down drawing things I need but that I dont want to draw. But this is something Im gonna have to do! Will try to get my ass into this alot more this year.
Deadly- haha I will try to draw these things more, so fun to watch your progress m8 and fun that u keep on pushing me.
Thomas- haha only eggs? I know ur right, everybody tell me the same thing. But now when I will study art in school I hope to start learning to study, and not only to study things I like haha thank you very much very kind.
okey so all u ppl telling me I need to study things that I dont wanna draw, here is some skulls that I didnt want to draw haha. But I know bones and skulls are good to study. Maybe I will start studying Loomis for realz soon.
the other one is just a bit off a sketch, only liked the mouth so posting this haha.
peace out fellow ca memebers and friends
Allright i've got an idea!
I need to improve and study certain things that I never come around doing.
Most of you that have followed me so far know what some of these things are.
So! I want to ask you please, can everyone of you make at least one suggestion (more if you can) of something that I need to practice on/something I should improve on right now and what kind of study that would improve this skill?
If you do, I promise to do at least one study session of at least one of your own suggestions. You got my word on this.
I really wanna improve, I want to show that I am willing to work hard to do so.
So please help me out, I know you can.
Thank you friends for making me get better!

I will be doing ur requests I just have to do some stuf for school first otherwise my teacher will be mad
Diarum- I will do this I promiss!!! Just need to finish stuf for school first.
Deadly- I can do that, but only if u give me a good reason why just that piece? I am, just been so busy with other stuf.
Parsa- thanks m8

haha sorry, will get it going more after the move!
Qlotzan- thanks I will, love animals!
Crooked- thanks, yea please do
Well u are getting a small update now, a piece I did for school that is due on monday with a red chalk lid in a mech pen, hope u know what this is, I hate these terms in english ^^ Its style is inspired by Il Guercino and I have used a photo and mixed it with memory to get to this point. I am nor sure if it is totally finished but here it is so far.
And Some of u might see stuf that look a bit off but I had to use his style more or less for this assignment so u know, and I know her face has some issues but well it cant be perfect.
Will upload more stuf next week after the move have been trying to use some other mediums too so stay tuned.
thanks for ur always support
Awesome. Is that done in pastel?
And the reason I chose that image is because it looked really hard, lol.
motherhood how it's powerful
that great subject
keep it up
my sketch book
FACEBOOK rafid falah
Poooost damn you!
Deadly- I will try that man I promise! it is done with a red crayon lid in a mech pen sorry for being so lazy haha but I have worked alot with art though.
Ramin- thank you, how is art going for you?
Qlot- thanks m8!
Bethany- thank you for that m8. About the white, I agree with you. But the artist that I have looked at used alot of white and the assignment was to try and copy his style so that is why
sorry boys n girls, Ive been really busy with moving and school. Im glad u still remember me
Right now I am working on getting better at drawing hands, will have two weeks off from school to do this, so here forth there will be alot of hands but youll have to wait until tomorrow to see the first ones cause the light are to bad this time of day.
Here are some stuf Ive done lately:
1: still life drawing
2: still life drawing
3: ref photo from the above
4: the front of my portfolio at school
5: clay play
6: part of a sculpture done with regular clay

8: coal play
9 and forth: croquie study
here are some handstudies and whatnot, will upload these everyday now haha and some croqie stuf will also come up from time to time.

Diarum- yes they are
Parsa- thanks friend!
Bethany- thanks, Im trying haha.
Some more hands and nude model quickies!
1: play with water based (her chin look a bit large i think, will try to make it smaller but dont know how, cant erase haha)
i am jealous to you as you already now because you are fantastic artist , i enjoyed watching your previous art pieces , well done bro .
YAY! GJ PMB! I started uploading stuff to my SB again, first time I've posted traditional work since I started it. Unfortunately my camera isn't as good as yours, so my colors and value were even more blown out. But I see what you're saying -- IRL I bet the colors look great on your work. I feel your pain with that .
BEAUTIFUL HANDS BTW!
Hello again, long time no see- but I see some great improvements in your sketchbook.
Those hand studies are bloody brilliant, and I liked the sculptures.
Try to neaten the linework on your other things, it looks like you took loads of care and time into the hands, why not translate that new found understanding of form onto your figures/faces now?
Anyways, you're a hard worker and already it's reaping benefits. Just keep at it.
