    Sketchbook. The start of a long journey.

    Hello to all members, I'm 19 and I start this sketchbook seeking critique of my works and tips to improve it.
    By the moment i have read learning to draw on the right side of the brain and I have a few books of Loomis.
    Here is the work that I have done today by the moment:

    I cant see any of your work..?

    "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."
    Matthew 7:3-5

    Great start here at Conceptart, try digging some more in Loomis books for anatomy studies, they really help.

    While drawing from life try some longer poses, keep challenging yourself.

    looks good, keep doing those still lifes, they will help you the most. Try doing some basics and stuff like drawing cubes and stuff they will help you a lot too. Nothing more really to say other then that!

    Great start, those life studies in particular are very solid. Glad you're starting off with the 'Right Side of the Brain', great way to start if you're serious about improving your technique. I also recommend 'The Natural Way to Draw' by Nicolaides. He has some great exercises that will really help you improve your draftsmanship .

    Keep on going, looking forward to seeing how you progress.

    More stuff. I think that my worst weakness are proportions, correct anatomy and think in 3D. I'm trying to work harder on it but it costs a lot to me to do it some good.
