    You're quite right! Luckily I get bored of things quickly. xD
    I've been looking at different african tribes and I'm hoping to do some racial studies tommorow. There's this beautiful bunch of people from the (hope I'm not saying the wrong thing) hamer tribe of ethiopia.
    Will probably do a painting tommorow too.


    Edit: Woke up late today but I've still got one doodle done.

    :rainbow: MORE TO COME :rainbow:

    Edit Edit: You guys need a rainbow emote so I can make everything I say look fantasticly gay. :C

    It is addictive, though, if I had buisness studies I'd do anything to get out of doing it's work. xD

    some nice ideas and experiments here. I'd say you should do some more anatomy and facial anatomy studies as some of your faces and figures look a bit flat and unstructured.

    looking good, nice to see you keep yourself busy

    Liking the style! I think you could bump up your "level" a bit if you put some more effort in to shading. You could look up samC's thread for inspiration here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...140145&page=39
    he's style might match with your current shading pretty well, just keep watching how the hatching follows the lines and curves, it really gives that something "special" that makes everything "pop"

    anyways, keep it up girl! youre improving well!

    Hey there,

    you didn't lie when you decided to name you SB "The mad doodlings of ..." they really are mad This said in a good way offc ^^

    Allthough you've got some sweet sketches in here - some better then the other, I do seem to find that your paintings really stand out - I must confess one thing though, I haven't checked all of your pages, only the first and 4-6 last ones :s So can't really give an accurate observation here. But I do can say I like your paintings. Especially the one in the beginning on post #23, it might be a bit better without the dripping and the hearts on her hand (they tend to draw my attention away), but it still is the best one I've seen in here imho.

    Just wanted to get this out of my system before going to sleep ^^
    Also got a small question, how can you find the energy to sketch at 6am in the morning? :p It just doesn't seem to work for me :p

    Cheers and sleepwell ^^

    Hey Naidy, the sketches are looking good but don't forget to keep touching up on your anatomy and figure drawing. I'd like to see some more color too! Anyway, keep the good work up and keep posting

    hey naidy, thanks for the harmony link. lol it's so addictive I don't know if I'm gonna be able to get anything else done today.

    suggestion/advice:
    I think for the african facial studies you should try drawing the different elements of the face seperately (like a bunch of noses and then a bunch of lips and eyes) and then draw the whole face, being consious of how the elements act together to make the face (proportion should be you focus here). for example look at the distance between the eyes and compare that to caucasoids. if you make a deliberate effort to notice these things while doing studies the info will just kinda sink to the back of ur head and it'll become intuitive; you won't have to think about it anymore. btw nice tortoise.

    critique: //this is gonna be rough. might wanna take a seat//
    1)there is very little shading.
    2)the faces are flat
    3)the shading that IS there is off.

    summary prognosis //just finished watching sherlock holmes =D //: poor understanding of underlying facial structure.

    my suggestion would be doing skull studies and some Andrew Loomis.
    don't get all detailed and artsy fartsy though, the point should be accuracy not beautifulary. something like this:

    The mad doodlings of a n00b

    really focus on the lighting and just go overboard with the shading.

    Also, I've noticed that for your face studies;
    1)they tend to look the same and
    2)you just draw faces.
    Don't just draw faces. I mean, you will get eventually better that way just through brute force but it's much more effective to focus on different aspects of the face and attack them seperately. not telling you to stop drawing whole faces but you should also be doing this. a good sign is when different studies look . . different.
    for example a study on planes might look like:

    The mad doodlings of a n00b

    while a study on proportion might look like:

    The mad doodlings of a n00b

    time to wrap up. here's a link to some Loomis books. you should download the heads and hands and follow some of the exercises. but not too closely. for example the hamer tribes might have the same basic facial planes as the perfect white guy loomis draws but once u start gettin detailed you should figure out your own planes. plus don't forget theyre different for each person. these exercise should help you SEE and feel the planes not act as a blue print or something. whew, i think that's it. good night!

    ps. this is an article on 3d modeling that I think applies to your face modelling problems. you should read the introduction and foundation pages. swear that it. I'm done now.

    I'M BACK AND HERE
    HAVE AN ART SPAM!
    My two walls of pictures have finally been taken down, it was so weird taking it down because it fell on me and it was like being in a tent of my own paintings xD
    The mad doodlings of a n00b
    The mad doodlings of a n00b
    Also did some doodles at school.
    The mad doodlings of a n00b
    The mad doodlings of a n00b
    The mad doodlings of a n00b
    the clown girl had some vaigue refference for the face, but I couldn't keep the picture out so I just dotted down where the features sat and just carried on however I wanted.

    AND NOW FOR THE REPLIES:
    Abnormally,hücumkedi,Whipsmart and hunter- thank you!

    Novbert: After taking a break (since I was having difficulty spotting my own faults) I realized just how right you are, and the others that have said so about my anatomy. I'm working on it!

    Equilerex: Many thanks for the link! you're right about the shading. It'd help me understand figures in general better too.

    Master Chill: Thank you! And you're right, I really need to do something new to show I've improved. It's not good something on my first page is still my best piece. :/

    Eddieee: Colour! Something I am itching to get back to. I'm planning on doing some acrylics work, and charcoal, and I'm working on a pencil colour thing of siamese twins- but I'm not happy on it. I've also done a painting somewhere but I don't much like it.

    Gamersgene: I honestly can't thank you enough! Your post made me sit down and actually think about where I'm going wrong and how I can start to get better. My faces are flat, and I slack when it comes to showing form and making things 'pop out' infact, I really have to pay attention and actually try to RETAIN what I've learnt in reading up on Loomis and what not. Anyways! Thank you for the crits and I'll definently try hard to fix up on my continual errors.

    Hnngh, you're right.
    Tommorow I have a free so I'll practice rendering faces then.
    Though, I've noticed I've slacked worse with the body. It's like block coloursand the legs are wonky and it's slightly lopsided. and the two guys are terribly un-serious.

    I neeeeeeeeed to stop slacking.

    Hey, nice updates! I agree with hücumkedi, try to do some research on volume and practice that, and then apply it, it's helped me with understand how light falls on objects, and don't be afraid to use references if you need them. i barely use ref's unless i'm doing a study, but i think that shows in my art . other than that, just keep it up, can't wait to see more!

    Nice art, I like it. Keep working on it, the progression is very eminent from page to page. Study the anatomy harder (I'm too) since I think thats much more important to create convincing human beings.

    Don't bother looking at my sketchbook. I haven't updated that thing in years. :/

    Hey everyone!
    Lang: You're right. I've barely even touched upon volume and light! Planning on doing a painting of this wee lion statue and I'm sure that'll help me understand shading/lighting a bit more. xD

    Sage Tso: Thank you! I think I've been a bit lazy since I got back home though. I'll have to change that. xD

    Gamersgene: Lol! I went through a whole phase of only watercolour paintings, must have lasted a few years. Ahh I'm still not entirely used to my blank cream walls but it's nice to not have to constantly smother over older paintings. I'm glad you like the clown girl too! I still have yet to finish + neaten her out though.

    MiladThaha: Ah, you're quite right and thank you!

    Speaking of anatomy studies...
    The mad doodlings of a n00b
    A page of Loomis/shading practice, some siamese twins...Who had some incredibly angular faces, and a painting I'm not happy with (That's the last time I pen over a sketch without checking for errors and randomly scribble a background and skulls in)
    Thanks again everyone! Going to hopefully spend today being arty and what not.

    An essential key to improvement is having absalutely no life what so ever.

    Ahaha I kid! ...Slightly, kind of.

    I think I'm going to go draw...

    I think you hit the nail on the head ... for me at least ... to have time to do art and life means I end up spending all my free time drawing ... but I dont mind ...and I hope you dont either.

    Form studies are always good ... but what you already posses is awesome and you have the love to draw and are really productive ... thats extremely important in my books! I think you are doing very well!

    Drawing from life really helped me out to understand form so I would suggest that.

    One thing I'm sure of is that hücumkedi will not be disappoint ... hehehe
    Naidy will definitely post more ;P
    Keep up the great work!

    I'm back, my friends!
    And thanks you guys, you're totally right about life studies Shambok. If the possibility of life studies comes up this year I'm most definently taking the chance. Last year I tried but I was too incredibly immature to draw a naked male model. xD
    Here's some odd stuff I drew before I went to sleep last night.

    The mad doodlings of a n00b
    The mad doodlings of a n00b

    And our psychology teacher asked us to draw a picture summing up last year...It turned into a chaotic mess due to boredom
    The mad doodlings of a n00b

    Idk, I think my stuff is getting weirder.
