    Thumbs up

    Great to see that you started an SB, Diarum.

    If you're new to drawing, it's best to put human anatomy and figure drawing on hold till you've gotten comfortable with the basics (that's just my opinion, though).

    You're brave, however!
    When I first started, I don't even dare to draw a car!

    Keep reading CA, keep reading art books, art videos, draw and draw, and you'll improve!

    Hope to see more posts from you soon!

    hey thanks for posting in my sketchbook. I'll try to look in here as often as I can. It's nice to find someone that's also kind of new here. You have done some great work with the anathomy practice, keep that up. What pens are you using?

    Hey Diarum, thanks for the drop-by to my SB!

    Drawing common household stuff is a great way to train your hand and eye. The basic crit I can give you: push your darks. That way, your values will cause your work to jump out and look more solid.

    That's because they dunno how to appreciate drawings and think every drawing and every sketch must be a frameable picture or else it's trash.

    Well I am not sure about becoming a texture artist but it is something that I will most likly dable(spelling?) in but I think that that would get kinda of boring just doing textures, I'm sure that they cant be limited to texture but still lol. I tryed doing rocks and I kinda suck at them even though it is not still life. I just got this new mech pencil (I don't like normal pencils cause they break to much and get dull) and it was $4.44 for two pencils. If you want an can give you the name Paint lol.

    Well, I like anatomy studies and all this stuff so kee on posting something like that.


    You draw cars? Are you serious? Drawing cars is hard stuff, because of their dynamique structure....I hope you know what I mean...

    If you draw I wanna draw cars, too.
    So take a look in my SB anytime.

    Not bad my friend. Keep doing those still lifes! Those will be the most helpful.

    Also, depending on what you want to do, find good artists and copy them if you like illustration stuff. At least that's what I did for a very long time. Plus it keeps things interesting.

    CyGear - yea I understand lol I didn't really think the cars was all that hard. but thanks
    UmpaArt - Yea even from the few I've down they have helped a lot, I think the still lifes that I am doing right now are better then the ones I did. I don't have a computer that I can get enough time on to copy master works of art.

    Hey Diarum! Thanks for visiting my sketchbook!! I see you're a fellow newcomer, welcome! I like what you've posted so far, great stuff! I think just like your still lifes you should perhaps consider copying the human figure as well? Also perhaps the next step is looking at values? Hope this helps, keep it up!

    Not a bad start DiaRum, keep cranking out drawings. Those contour gestures are nice and they're excellent practice. And that wood came out nice.

    I think you need to slow down a bit on some of your life studies though, you seem to rush into drawing when you ought to spend a lil' more time observing. Those bricks for example, if you spent more time just looking it over, measuring, and checking your progress, you wouldn't have drawn them too far apart.

    So yeah, when you sit down to do a still-life don't hurry it. Good observation always precedes a good drawing.

    All in all though, good work. Keep it up.

    good work so far, I think the area that needs most attention is drawing/constructing masses, not just outlines. Reading Bridgman, Loomis or Hogarth will definitely help there. It looks like you're drawing just the outside in most of your life drawing stuff, those books will teach you to construct properly and draw from the inside out, i.e. base your figures on where the spine, pelvis, shoulders, etc are in space. it gets much much easier once you get your head around that

    THank you for your kind words. I agree with Neon on building structures. I come from a background of LOVING comics. When I did a P.O.W. challenge about a year ago, a guy told me to focus on my figures more, so I have since then. I bought Hogarth's "Dynamic Anatomy" and "Dynamic Figure Drawing."

    When it comes to drawing though... I'm relatively untrained and I just have a lust for it. So do what you do... we're all trying to reach "enlightenment"

    All of those Loomis and some of Bridgeman's books can be downloaded from www.scribd.com

    And cut down on all un-necessary life's luxuries (brothels, cigars, Starbucks coffee, McDonald's, video games and everything else that doesn't compromise your survival) will free up lots of $$$ to buy art books.

    DueceRok - lol yes we are all trying to reach enlightnement.
    Xeon OND - You know the irony is that I don't buy anything with my money, its more because of what I don't earn rather then what I spend it on. lol see I don't ahve a job so there for I don't have a steady income and money seems to randomly earned at random point in time.

    Also would like to say that I its kinda lame that I can't post any drawings, cuz I got a lot of them now to upload but my mom won't scan them, she says she will but has yet to do it.

    Hey bud, thanks for checking out my stuff.

    Those bones are looking good. You're being way too hard on yourself with all this "failed" stuff. As long as you're learning from what you do nothing you draw is a failure.
