    A sketchbook as serious as my username can get

    Hello, I'm Alisa, 16 years old- aaand I don't like the things I draw.

    I want to improve as much as possible.
    Critique and aid will be taken wholeheartedly.

    Edit: 17 now.

    I'm not good at drawing women- or anything anatomically correct. :|
    So, I'm going to wing it and get some references.

    Continuation of sketch.

    AUUGH. I've been really lazy lately- So much that it hurts.

    1> Someone else's character
    2> /old/ TARDIS from Dr.Who, this is the second structure I've ever drawn- and god, did it take a while, even with a reference. Hopefully, I can get some more practice.

    In progress-

    I have some questions, if anyone can answer them, please do.

    For starters, how can I make profile views not look flat?
    How does one draw muscles under a certain color of light?
    AAAND does anyone know of any good brush sets to simply draw with?

    :I

    I really don't not what to say but WOW you have a lot of talent and your just 16 O_o.

    I really think I can't help you with a lot since I'm just an amateur artist, but if you want an advice: draw more female characters or maybe draw some models and also draw some anatomy in order to get more experience, a good way to get some original ideas is playing with the anatomy and try to make some characters of your own, also you should check the anatomy tutorial from Ron Lemen in this page is pretty useful.

    As for your question I really don't know how to answer your question with words, but if its help I always draw a circle and then make some guide lines to determine the form of the face, also is good to imagine the skull in that position, the other two questions I'm afraid I cant answer them since I never colored and the last try ended in frustration.

    Btw I like the smiley guy got that disturbing psychopathic look. Keep posting I really want to see more of your work.

    Thanks bud, yeaaah, I should be drawing more anatomical things. It just gets so boring while filling out pages of faceless bodies- buut, I 'll take your advice anyway. Oh, and I'll check that tutorial out, thanks.

    Sketches- not pretty mind you. I did that 60 second for every pose thing and- WOW DOES POSE MANIACS LOVE UPSIDE DOWN FIGURES.

    I raged.

    What is armor- what is design- I don't have.
    Those eyes.. The HUD system is staring at you- oooo

    First design for the flag runner or something to that effect.
    The guy inside is pretty, uh, nonreactive so I made it so his expressions would be displayed by his helmet.

    Of course, I can't draw helmets. /Thumbs up

    No school on Monday because of snow! WOOO, that means I have time to draw even more and fix the horrible atrocities I call art!

    This is for the DSG. I didn't post it because it's so intimidating there- wait, that doesn't make sense. This whole site is intimidating.

    Animals- they are the bane of my existence- one of them at least.
    How do people make their art so sharp?

    1> Practicing something
    2> Dragon. Lower jaw too large, teeth are incorrectly placed. Foreshadowing off, and lack of directional lighting.

    Sigh.
    SKETCHBOOK HEEELLL YEAAAH.

    You have a very good start here, you are much too hard on yourself when it comes to your art. You are actually very good with digital painting and sketching. Keep up the good work and don't give up!
