Hi everyone my names Cole, I'm 17 years old and in my senior year of highschool. I've been lurking here for a few years now, finally manned up and got the nerve to start a topic.
I've been drawing since I was very young, its really my passion and I want to get better, and get a job in art!
The first one is a portrait I did last year, I also threw in two sketchbook pages of mine, and a picture of a women i think from a loomis book.
The last 3 are ones I did this weekend, inked and then water colored all from my head.
And the last ones a pastel I did about the same time as the portrait of the old man.
Hey man, nice to see someone the same age around here (but you're a grade ahead). I see some nice work and I think your hands are your best, but your work is kinda outliney. Try working less with line and more on tone. And let's see some anatomy studies! Keep it up dude
nice ideas, but you need broader range of subject matter like environment to characters and so on
Need more shadows, observation sketches always are a pro in my book
keep drawing everyday and write down any thing that goes through your head
it helps the flow of ideas as u progress in skill and age
Eddieee: Hey man, thanks for stopping by. 17 too that's cool, yeah I do more line stuff in my work on here so far, those hands were all for contours because I might have put them on another paper and make a collage. I did some more studies since I do need to do that more!
teddy007kong: Thanks for the tips man, yeah I'll keep drawing everyday! got to get better some how!
So here is some studies, and a quick 10min ink and color and a finished ink/watercolor of that hand one.
Ok here is some new ones
A few sketches and some little inks. Also a big watercolor of some vans shoes, and a few acrylic tests and 3 pages I put together of the paper I keep under my keyboard when I'm on the computer I doodle.
