    The sketchbook of a newbie

    Hey CA

    My name's Renée, and right now I'm in my second year at college, studying Communication & Multimedia Design.

    And this is my sketchbook. Hopefully it will help me suck less

    The more one studies and practices, the less they'll suck. It's just the law of nature. Keep it up!

    Nice sketches Keep drawing everyday and store those drawings deep in a drawer (or in the early pages of this page)... when 2 or 3 months have gone by, get them back and you'll see by yourself
    When my daughter was about seven years old, she asked me one day what I did at work. I told her I worked at the college - that my job was to teach people how to draw.
    She stared back at me, incredulous, and said, "You mean they forget?"

    Oh yeah you see the posemaniac drawings you did, just a lil advice its best to loosen it up a bit! you'll get better results! I used to draw the exact way, but when you loosen up you will get better results trust me!

    Keep going!

    ok good start.
    to improve your posemaniacs I advice you to don't draw the contour but try to understand the volume.
    keep it up

    lhazar: Thanks, and I was planning on doing exactly that . I think I'll keep the earlies sketches online in this sketchbook, it always kinda bugs me when I look at other people's sketchbooks and find out they (or their image host) has removed most of their earlier works.

    Diarum: Yeah, I was pretty happy about the birds as well. And I'm not usually happy with my work

    Twan: Thanks for the tip, I'll try to keep that in mind next time

    mpdpsy: Thank you ^^

    kthcore: Heh, and I already thought I was loosened up quite a bit considering it was a 1 minute drawing every time. But I'll try. Thanks for stopping by

    good and work man
    I wish I could have a sculpture to study it
    you try to make lot of views, it's good
    The problem is that the head is not always on the same view than the torso
    I try to correct and show you mistakes

    also you should improve your rendering, shadows and lights, there are too much white on your drawings
    and get rid when you finish your drawings of the contour and just render light and shadows
    this is a good sculture draw by dorian iten, the rendering is really good, you understand now what I mean ?
