Thread: Toates will level up

Toates will level up
Call me Toates. I'm a 19 year old student from New Zealand. After a year of doing literally nothing (literally) I've taken up a course in 3d animation, but my passion remains with 2d art.
I was never that good though, never practiced and only sporadically put out a picture. I've studied design and photography before and I'm seriously tempted to do some sort of arts course. But before I have a chance i reckon I'll need to be 100 times better, so with no one to really ask about how to improve i turn to my only hope, The good folks of conceptart.org! a little dramatic but there you have it
I present my sketch book, I'd really love to learn figures as I'm terrible at them if you know of any resources point me in that direction!
Sketch's will be uploaded later when i can scan, for now photoshop.

Hey these look good! You're definitely off to a good start!
I'd probably recommend trying to bring out the 3D shape in your drawings a bit more, i.e. think about the way surface curve and bend towards the camera. drawing in contour or construction lines would definitely help, and they're very important for being able to understand the shape. You got a start in 3D already anyway

what is 'drawing in contour or construction lines'? sorry i dont understand the lingo im basicly trying to teach myself and have no idea what that means, thanks for the help though!

start of portrait i did tonight, getting more of a feel for it, still to many lines and not enough form. I was drawing from my head rather than the refrence, i need to stop that! nose is off a cant seem to get them right.
and still trying to find a way to draw anatomy!
Edit: went back over this trying bigger brushes as you guys said, and trying to get more form into it , tell me what you think

Use big brushes to block things in, then go smaller for details. It seems as though you've been going a bit too small too quickly. I'd also recommend you make your lines long and sweeping, try not to feather them too much. Really observe your subject and where your lines are going before you put them down.
As for the construction bit, think of drawing like 3d modeling and the different polies. A 3d model is made up of many planes, right? Well that's how you construct in drawing too. It's the same concept.

Enydimon : Thanks, I'm finishing of this picture with a bigger brush and im finding it easyer to block things out though it might not show. sorry for my ignorance but what is feathering my lines?
wip cloud again
