Thread: My first SketchBook arts.
April 7th, 2010 #1
My first SketchBook arts.
Ive never really pursued art seriously till know and rarely drew anything so advise and criticizing will help.
In my sketch books is what i started with two weeks ago you can see Ive grown in leaps and bounds though still much to do.
These aren't all iv done just the ones that came out okay. Their not my best just where i was practicing various points of my drawing. All i have to go on is others pictures to learn from so tips i need.
I have more in my album on my profile but this is the jist of what Ive got
i'm just trying out many different poses and such.
The wings I'm adding because i want to draw from my imagination rather than what their, so im trying to draw souly from that.
As for why my thread is listed for nudity is because I'll be drawing them without clothes from this point on so that i can better learn how the clothes would lye on the them

Along with working on anatomy, you should practice mark making. When I look at your drawings I don't see much confidence with your drawing tool. As a starting point I would suggest sketching some gradients or working on shaded shapes. Think about how hard you're pressing with your tool and remember that drawing isn't like writing letters.

I'm a beginner too so it's a case of the blind leading the blind, but you can practice making a gradient by drawing some squares on a piece of paper. Leave one white, and practice making each box next to it darker and darker. Use different pencils. The H pencils are harder and make lighter marks. B pencils are softer and darker.
