    Sketch:Journey to Learn

    So I'm going to being a sketchbook starting tomorrow.


    HOWEVER I NEED YOUR HELP?
    I am willing to go through anything and everything to learn and be one of the best and life changing artist of all time, that is where you come in to play my friend.
    I need to learn as fast and as much as possible.
    I go to art school, so I have somewhat of a background. But i'm finding that everyone seems to be able to draw better than I am with less time.
    Is it possible they are doing something right that I am not?
    Is it because it takes me slower?
    I don't know!
    So tell me what to draw and I shall draw my heart out..is it from life, imagination, from anatomy studies or structures...Best way to practice color, Best way to get smooth amazing lines...I need information I need Wisdom, I need guidance, I need you!!!

    Where I am

    So i've decided it best to show my followers where I am so far, so that I may get torn apart with critiques.

    I would love to hear whats good, but only whats good when you say at least 3 or 4 more things that are bad. If I wanted praise i'd be showing these to my mother.
    So here we are, these are on 8.5x11 Sketchbook paper, Almost all are drawing I do on the bus using a Pilot Precise v5 rolling ball pen.
    I threw some pencil in there, but I like pen alot more.

    So please help me on this journey! All are welcome on this adventure. Learn with me if you will, experience failure and progression.

    I'll take on some competition, I find that it motivates me more than anything.

    Random Studies

    Most of these are studies from everywhere, in my 5.5x8.5 Sketch book.

    I have alot of problem with drawing straight up and down, I always draw a lot of things leaning to the left grrr....

    It takes a while for replies to come in. ^^; Don't get too disheartened!

    It's good that you are drawing about everything you see; there's no way else to skip out on practice for drawing. I can see that you're also working the human anatomy- keep it up.

    For the moment, I suggest sticking 2 things to focus on each week, perhaps? Like say in the first week, you focus on the human anatomy and still life drawing. And in the second week you start doing individual studies on hands/feets/limbs/etc... like in your hand studies.
    it's not the end that matters but the journey

    Color

    I colored these for my class, the other concept artist Penelope drew them.
    Color studies
    My teacher picked the green one so I decided to go with the greenish color scheme.
    Still decided on the other

    Another Concept

    Another concept for the from a different view.
    The characters will be walkin in from the right down the ramp to the crystals.
    When activated the crystals will start to glow and the ground will begin to break apart.
