    Drawing is IMPOSSIBRU!!

    Hi I am Kylie, I am not necessarily new to CA and I am generally considered more a lurker than a poster.

    Most of the work that I will post in here will be digital, though I may post a picture here and there which is done by oils or pencils. My general preference is using my motion le 1700 as my sketch book.


    My goals for this sketchbook is of course to learn and improve, as each day I create work, I hope to post it here and receive some form of criticism to guide me into the right direction. I only wish to improve and develop my style and gain an understanding of the fundamentals of art so I may be able to express my imagination in a believable way. Currently my art lacks this, colour, vibrancy, believability, possibility; my art is quite flat in colour, it lacks perspective and ends up quite dull and uninteresting, I hope that I can change this and have stepped back from making illustrations to doing practice drawing and reading books to help me understand what my art lacks and to combat it with full force.

    So I welcome those who venture here and I hope that some of you may be able to assist me in my journey to further my abilities.

    hey good start. don't forget to use reflected light. its missing in a number of your creature concepts. reflected light is most useful for showing off form. If you look in your colored pencil photo-real work, you will see it there. Keep it up.

    I Really like the dogs. Many of your digitals have a plastic or overly-smooth look. I suggest using more textures and/or custom (rough) brushes in future. Another quick and easy thing is to just add a small amount of noise at the end of the painting.

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for that, I can see what you mean, I will really need to work on that.

    I agree my stuff is very plastic, it frustrates me as I tend to go overboard with blending and in the end the result is what you see. I have been trying to avoid over blending but its a horrible habit.

    I did a human practice (with photo ref) today, and also a speed paint of something that popped into my head.

    I am still pretty slow at drawing so even my speed paint took 2 and a half hrs.. I think I will need to sit down and do a bunch of 10min pictures.

    Did a 10 min challenge today, each picture in 10 mins.. Its obvious people and landscapes are my weakest points. Things I plan to focus on improving..

    some more human practices today, gosh I am really no good at people, I make the body weird and the legs are always too short, anyone able to give a few pointers on making the legs not too short?

    I have also been wondering, is it wrong to prefer drawing a particular subject and be bad at another? People are just another animal, but other people seem to have a strict mind that if you don't draw people you wont be able to increase your ability, yet those same people cant draw a horse or an okapi or elephants. I get the feeling like its a biased comment, or maybe I am just resentful because I do not enjoy drawing humans as i do drawing animals?

    I will still try to increase my understanding of human anatomy, but I get the feeling like I am studying a subject that I have no enthusiasm over.

    Thanks oren90, I know my human stuff is bad compared to the rest, humans are very much my weak point, give me a random animal and I will draw it great, humans are just hard to me.

    Another sketch study, I seriously think humans are just something I cannot draw. Sure I can work from a photo ref great, but trying to draw them without looking at refs etc I cant even make a believable form.

    I did get lucky and found using a flesh base before doing lines helped a bit, but I still cannot draw entire bodies, in fact I am still running into the same problems even though I am reading everything I can about drawing people.

    and one which I used a photo reference for the body.
