    mah drawrings

    hi all, so here is the obligatory first post where i say, "well im not really sure what to put here... etc, so on, etc". Anyway, i am 29yo and have spent my entire life admiring the art of others. i have always loved art, especially graphic stuff like comics, cartoons etc. and have always wanted to create my own but didn't think that i had the ability. well i have finally had enough, this is me conquering my self doubt and just putting it out there. I have lurked quite a few art forums and have found this place to be full of people who work hard and love what they do. i admire you all. well i love this stuff too, and i've got a "crap-ton" of work ahead of me, so i think this is the place i need to be. so here i go...
    tldr: mah drawrings...


    First up, some stuff from loomis' "fun with a pencil". this is a composite from work done in November, that is when i started.

    Nice cartoon drawing. It's a good practice on facial structure, head perspective, and facial expressions.

    so looking at this i realize that the first few things i posted were kinda huge. I have scaled the following images down a bit, hopefully ive scaled them enough. anyway, here are some hands that i've done. been working on hands quite a bit lately. a large majority of them come from bridgman. also, negative space drawing of a chair. These are all from january.

    The hands in the last post are pretty good, especially that grey one.

    One problem is that you seem to be drawing then as if the knuckles are all level, which they're not and it's making the hands look a bit off.

    thanks scimok, i know what you mean about the hands. they are still to, smooth? if that's the right word. the fingers are still too much like cylinders. here are some more recent ones, they are all from this month.

    so here is what i've been working on last night and this afternoon. I know that it still needs work, but honestly i think i need to take a break from this one for a little while. i've already got a few hours into it. i really stink at values...

    The hands improved a lot, one thing though, i think what PermaNoob meant was that the knuckles are all in one line. Where in a hand they are placed in a arc, when you look right on top of you're own hand you will see that the knuckle of the pinkey is lower than the ringfingers knuckle and the middlefinger knuckle is the highest placed. If you can follow me XD

    Like the last portrait anatomy looks really good, fear and loathing or maybe not ?

    Grts!
