    Re-learning to draw...

    Attachment 977354

    Hi there. I'm starting my sketchbook here.

    I've been drawing since I was little, but never took classes till last year.
    I took an express (introductory, yet serious) course on sc. illustration, which
    I found to be actually fun and really useful; those were the first drawings I
    made truly from the natural (I normally just did by memory, used photos or
    even trace things down). Latter, I found this community; I began to realize
    then, how shitty of a draughtsman I am. So now I'm gonna start dumping
    some of those and other sketches I may do, hopping for some of you guys
    to help by giving suggestions. I wanna do real better.

    Thanks for your concern, from the very beginning. See you around.

    I'll dump some more.

    These two are in big format, so I could just take pictures of them (with my cellphone...); those were the first (and last, till now) drawings from live nudes I ever made.

    The next are from these days. The last one was made the kind of way I normally do: from imagination, without models... and it shows :-( As you may see, up to now, I've developped a sort of stylization that was fine at the beginning, but now is just turned formulaic and limitating. So I'd really like you guys to give me some advice in order to clean my style and developping truly academic realistic skills, like those many of you display.

    Some kids' skteches, from photos, for a commission.
    Traced shamelessly.

    Yo, you got a great shading style and sense for three-dimensionality, but I think you have to draw more gestures of the human, because the things you made out of imagine seems to be overhasted and not clearly thought about the anatomy and perspective

    All your studies are wonderful. However, the study of the moth and leaves/trees is really elegant. Reminds me of old plates from naturalist texts from 100 years ago. It illustrates something useful about the organisms, but is also really beautifully composed.
