fjskmdl's beginner work
I'm currenty 28 living in Belgium.
At the age of 10 i did some drawing lessons for about 1 year, but apart from that i have no experience.
I started drawing beginning december 2009 and here is some of my beginner work so far, it's far from perfect but please critique

Welcome to Ca.org
Well I think you should work on gesture, as Glenn Vilppu said it's the first step, the most difficult, and the most important, try to scratch fearless, "don't simply draw the gesture FEEL IT"

The last 3 are drawn from copied cgarena magazines.
Las picture should be vega from the street fighter video game.

hummm... you have some goods drawing here, but some of them can use more proportion, I recommend you to practice by grabbing (or download) a ye oldie good book of anatomy. If you need the name of some authors try Andrew Loomis or George Bridgman. Btw keep practicing and drawing

Nice drawings, keep up. I can see, that you are reading "drawing from the ride side of the brain" that's good .. also i suggest to view those other Vilppus lessons, i have viewed most of them my self and i think they were quite helpful. He builds up a logical method.. first the gesture, then basic shapes, to get the foreshortening etc. down and then build up from there.. try some time with different sources, and see what click the most.. "natural way of drawing" is a book that lots of people say that they couldn't understand shit, while others say it taught them much.. if you have done studies for a while, and you realize that one guys instructions aren't really helpful compared to others, than dump that other guy.. though it might take some time to realize that in the beggining, at first lot's of things seem like wtf. keep posting.

its obvious your really into drawing and i think you've even developed since your first post which is great. One criticism though is your pencil...it might seem obvious or patronising but try using a 0.7 or 0.5 mechanical pencil, i never used one up and till recently and i find them so much better for sharper marks and shading.
January 17th, 2010 #19
nice to hear that, i think i have such a pencil laying around somewhere.
I will give it a try, thanks!

updates for 17/01/2010
I'm using a mechanical pencil as suggested and i like it better because of the finer tip.
