    Just beginning drawing, Noob Alert!

    After screwing around for a long time, I want to get more serious about art and I am beginning to invest more time into it. I've been trying to draw on and off since 2002, but I haven't gotten anywhere. Here’s What I have been working on, even though it is not good at all it is a start.

    Latest stuff at the end of the thread!

    Woah, that's allot of studies you have there. Definently shows you're dedicated.
    What I'd say though is I've seen a couple of Anime influenced faces/poses, for now I'd steer clear of them. Most anime pays *very* little attention to the rules of anatomy and they'll just confuse you which'll make the road to improvement longer. Believe me, I know (Was swept into it since 9, took ages to shake off) xD

    But, Anime aside I see much promise in you so keep up the good work!

    Good to see you're working so much on the basics; you can never practice that stuff too much.

    Looks like most of the anatomy stuff you're doing is from imagination. Working from imagination is a great way to see where your knowledge is lacking at this point, but if all you do is practice drawing something the wrong way it'll just be harder for you to break those bad habits. So if you're trying to improve your anatomy knowledge (well, your knowledge of anything) draw from reference.

    Thanks for the advice guys! Yeah its true alot the stuff is manga influenced, I used to draw in that style alot before. But I'm looking at more Loomis and Jack Hamm, I'll begin too study them more carefully. I also just ordered a book on Drawing What You See by Rudy de Reyna, so I can work on perspective and shapes. I did these drawings today, and I'll try working on some more proper studies after this.

    Hey man, I like the effort so far. Your figures could use a lot of work so I suggest not only studying figure drawing books (ie. loomis/bridgman) but also draw from life. Try your best to get into some life drawing sessions or even just draw people outside (subways are great for this). Also your perspective blocks look a little off, remember that all parallel lines will converge at the same vanishing point. Try to line them up/visualize where they go before you draw them. Also when sketching I find it best to start light and then make the important lines with one nice clean stroke. Good lucky buddy and keep it up!

    Hey guys, I'm back with more basic box sketches, its not that easy though. I'm trying to understand basic shapes and perspectives by drawing boxes alot to understand it better. I have a long way to go though..

    Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook
    Thought I'd pop by and see how you're going-
    I love the perspective and eye practices, keep up the good work
    (I would love to see you try and shade some of the cubes too, that would also help you)

    To Naidy: Thanks for the encouragement, and I'll try some shading soon! This time I focused alot on boxes, eyes and some spheres, but the spheres came out kinda bad, it's something I still need to practice on alot.

    hello there
    thanks for stopping by my SB

    great dedication on getting the basics !


    here a very good tutorial about ellipse by scott robertson (all his stuff will teach you THE basics) get his training videos

    http://hi.baidu.com/i_am_c/blog/item...30bd1872a.html

    one advice: try to not redraw over lines too much. two, three times is the limit (one time is the best)

    try also to exercice simples straight lines: place two points and connect them
    then try curved lines: place three points and connect them with a smooth clean lines (one pass)

    keep the good work mate

    Hey guys, its been a while, but I have been drawing quite a bit, so I have new studies to post!
    Zou: Thanks for the link, it explains what I need to practice perfectly!

    Here are some new things I've been trying to draw for the past few weeks. Its kinda all over the place tho, so its a bit random..
