    The mad doodlings of a n00b

    I hope I'm doing this right
    I've been lurking around this website for ages and finally I gained the gall to actually make my own account.

    Good morning everyone. I have the habit of waking up at four am during the summer-time so I decided to do a self portrait at like five in the morning after I was done revising xD



    I didn't spend any time on the hair since I was more focused on the face (pluss I have crazy morning hair), hope you don't mind.

    And I'm back again! (Perhaps I shouldn't be updating so often :s)

    But anyways, I'm working on a wee paintin' I did when I was 15. You can see the original in the corner. xD
    I think I might have went a bit off on the faces so I'll rework it later...

    hi! welcome on CA! you have to learn face proportions, check out loomis books
    for instance, on the profil view, the face is too long and not enough large
    keep it up!

    Gthm/Death: Thank you very much!

    Thanks Trutze, Yeah, I think I over did the colouring on the younger one, at first I planned to keep him more simple and pale but I got carried away~

    Thought you were rid of me?
    Think again. IT'S SPAM TIME!

    Oh god, I'm sorry, I had to do it okay? It's my tribute to the ex-PM. I felt an affinity to him due to his habit of eating 9 bananas a day. xD


    A little more serious, I was practicing zombies.


    Urgh, the serious has quickly dissapaited again xD Uhm, I know the Anatomy on Link is Horrific but I like the horse?



    Some doodles between revising last night

    And finally;

    Animals/creatures I doodled this morning during a revision break. xD

    Deciding to do a wee painting, Here's the sketch so far (apologies for the mark on it, I have a cut on my finger and I was silly enough not to put a plaster on before drawing xD)

    I REALLY LIKE YOUR PENCIL strokes. BUT WHAT I LIKE BEST IS HOW U draw the EYES. Theyre so beautiful and big!! ) no critic so far but it seems like ur avoiding to draw the whole body.. i think .... Bad! I do that to but because of space.. I draw huge. I like ur style keep up the good work

    To Dave: Yes, I definently need to doodle more exciting poses, I think I've been playing it safe for now but after I finish my painting I'm going to do LOADS. And about the sketchbook, You're completely welcome and I'm rather excited about the subscription! you're my first one And I wish I knew how to link my sketchbook in my signature, I'll have to try later :/

    To Puffy nose: Many thanks! Since I was 14 I've been trying to draw eyes more interestingly, I used to do them horribly xD and you've caught me red handed! I have been avoiding full body drawings. I need to do more anatomy studies asap, especialy around hips xD

    Right! The painting I've been doing is almost finished, just have to neaten it up so see you all

    Woah! I've been getting so many comments today, I can hardly believe it!
    To Tom: Ahh, Every time I go to Ireland I do that. I've started bringing the odd sketchbook to school too. You're totally right, it's really fun, especialy since the people I hang around with are always pulling silly faces and doing funny things. xD

    To Pookie: Many thanks! I'm flattered. xD Especialy since you have such an awesome sketchbook

    Well, since Puffynose noticed I've not put on any full bodied pics I thought I'd practice a bit.

    Sorry if it's a wee bit off, I didn't use any refference.
    Annnd
    Incase you're interested, this is how far I've gotten so far with the painting.

    I'm thinking I need to neaten, add more contrast and define the hair more?

    I would like to say that all you guys on Concept art are an amazing bunch, since I've been on here I've really been inspired to keep trying.

    That painting is coming along really nicely. Are you familiar with Alphonse Mucha? The way you've drawn the hair reminds me of his work.

    Pay attention to where your light source is coming from. On the lips, especially, it looks like your light is coming from the bottom and top, which conflicts with the light on the nose/chin. Give this a look: http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/search/label/Lighting The fourth post down is probably most relevant but they're all worth a read.

    Many thanks Mdbauman, yeah I must admit I didn't pay much attention to light so that tutorial will definently be a help :3
    And no, I haven't heard Alphonse, I'll have to look him up.
    thanks again~

    And I've not come back empty handed, I have a few doodles as well.


    Done quickly with a thick felttip, no details, each one took like a minute xD

    And

    This is just a horrible little colour practice, I'll fix it up, I swear. Next time I'm going to actually do thumbnails of possible landscapes. xD

    I like your watercolor. Sometimes the rougher a watercolor sketch is the more energy it has. I think the loose strokes, bleed backs and so forth are what give watercolor its character.

    Many thanks Brain, I think with a bit of work I might make that colour experiment work. It's just a bit too loose for now, I'll get to work on it tommorow

    Had my music exam today, glad that's out of the way.
    And here are some things I doodled waiting in the common room:

    Two of the hands are observation, then I noticed I must of been looking really glum so I tried to try what I thought I might look like from the front. xD

    Earlier in the morning I was doing some more doodles, yes, the guy is Sheik. I was kind of doing this 'pic and mix' characters and scenario thing.

    That's all for now ~ I wasn't feeling too arty today.

    You have the potential of becoming quite a fine artist, i see a lot talent and imagination here, you only need the time, guidance and a little hard work to harvest those skills, that being said i think one day you will be quite an amazing artist.

    To Mike: Thankyou very much! Comments like that brighten up my day- and give me reason to keep on working at it xD. I must say I was just looking through your sketchbook, amazing stuff, truly.
    Thanks again and like I've said before, I can't believe how helpful everyone is on here, it really spurs me on.
