    Cranix' Sketchbook of sketchiness

    Hi everyone. I've been lurking here for a few weeks now and I like what I see.

    As I have somewhat neglected my drawing over the past two years I need to get back in the game (thats if I was in the game in the first place ) so all help in future will be much appreciated

    Well I thought I'd get the ball rolling with a few posts of some work I did when I was 17 and go from there. Apologises for the bad scan quality on some I had a fragged scanner back then lol)

    So here we go:

    @Icedearth15876 : Thank you for the comment

    Right here are a few old eye studies and a random hand study. Once again I blame my old scanner for the brightness and high contrast.

    Thank you, I will start to produce some more portrait work soon once my university work is done and dusted. I really need to get back into the swing of things.

    Hi all, its been awhile since I have posted. Reason why is that I've been running around like a headless chicken for my degreewhich am happy to say I passed. As a reward i bought myself a new graphics tablet as the one I had before was ageing to say the least.

    So over the next few months I will be practicing quite abit. As I am a totally newbie to this kind of thing expect the worst ;P

    Well I gave my new graphics tablet a whirl before, still got to get used to the hand eye co-ordination, should take long though (seeing as I play guitar)

    Heres my first little doodles each only took 40mins sounds alot for the quality of them but Iam a beginner after all.

    Obviously I have much to learn so hit me (not literally) with those crits so I can start learning!

    You sure your in the right sketchbook lol. Thank you very much but may I ask which piece is near top-notch?

    I'll have an updated version of the pear on a string on soon hopefully it will look abit more refined.

    I like it, powerful stuff, both the sketches and the digitals.

    I guess I should dig up my pen and paper, because at the moment my skills in traditional don't give much reason to brag about, been too lazy I guess

    Another quick sketch.


    Am having some trouble deciding what brushes I use, I usually default back to a circle any recommendations of brushes to sketch and shade with?
