    Randomeister's Path to Improvement [[UPDATED!! 8/21]]

    Hello, there. I've been lurking, and well, I think I have enough confidence in myself now to actually put some sketches up regularly. I'll start right here, and post some older ones.
    I'm hoping for the best advice and critiques I can possibly get, and don't be afraid to be really nitpicky. I like nitpicky, because nitpicky will make me better.
    Anywho! Here you go, some hand/eye studies:

    So........ I guess from now on I'll actually upload all sketches I draw. Even if I think they're godawful.
    Talking about godawful, have some old, old art. And unfortunately, old is only perhaps a year ago. T.T

    I decided to try one of those 'tone study' things, and although I've got a looooooong way to go, I'm pretty happy with what I've learnt this time.

    yeah do more of this studies, you'll get alot out of them i think... you couldtry one where you limit yourself to lets say three values and focus just on the shapes to get them right.

    keep it up!

    Okay. I limited myself to 15 minutes on this one for today, but here's my three tone study of a Keira Knightly pic.

    Hey

    On the figure studies quite a lot of them look out of proportion in areas. Maybe try doing quick 30 second gesture studies and then go in for some longer poses. Longer poses will give you time to really concentrate on the proportions and make sure you're happy with them.

    Another thing I would suggest is to study some anatomy books, Bridgman has some nice hand studies which you might find helpful. I noticed your hands lack sharp edges to define bones and tendons, so Bridgman will be able to give you guidance on that. For anatomy I would suggest Loomis.

    On your digital work try blocking out the picture first. Then use a mixture of the hard brush and the soft brush, because in your current studies it looks like you've only used the soft brush. The soft brush is great for the lighter areas, but when it comes to getting definition the hard brush is better

    Other than that keep on sketching

    Oh wow, CakeFACE, thank you for the advice! I'll go stick my nose in all that now. The hand studies will def benefit me, because, to be frank, I've got no idea how to draw hands yet. XD
