    Marlee does art ~ now including tuberpiller action!

    Hey everyone! Well, I've been lurking around here for a while and I've figured its high time I start a sketchbook, hopefully people will be willing to help me improve. I'm sixteen years old, and have big dreams. Yeah.. I have a long way to go, I know.

    ok, less words and more art! (And please forgive me; I have no idea how to work my scanner or attach images. this might take a few tries.......)

    Behold some crappy anatomy studies from Bridgman and Peck's "Atlas", some studies of an ugly yam, self portraits, and doodles. More to come.

    these are nice, i have a few comments.
    One thing to remember when you're drawing the way you're drawing, the lines on the face are more for the description , and not the actual shading from light. does that make sense? when you're looking with your eyes, imagine you're actually feeling it with your eyes, so you know the surface of what you're drawing. also loosen your line, practice some "s" curves. good luck!

    looking nice man! Really dig the amount of studies you do. and now go on and do MORE of it
    There's just one think I'd like to mention. It's something that I reaaaaally don't get and what I see all around, and of which I think (and thats most important) it really really slowens down your improvement.
    I am talking about all that wonky strange lines which are meant to look really loose I think.
    Some people might completely disagree with me there but I am totally against that "loose-doodling" attitude when it comes to serious drawing.
    Sure getting mad with the pencil can be real fun but it DEFINITELY will not improve your skills as far as technique is concerned. To be concrete, I especially see that in #2.
    Really try to hardest to be focused and concentrated all the time when you draw, put down every line conciously even if you are hatching. Be FOCUSED and INTENSE with everything you do!
    To make this clear: I DO NOT say that your lines have to be looking superawesome now, that would be ridiculous. I am talking about a mindset you need to have to be able to improve FAST and to be able to push yourself beyond your limits with every line you draw, with every brushstroke you paint. try to make things really TIGHT in order to be able to judge where you may be really loose

    Keep at it man, you're doing great!!

    Man, thanks for the comments guys I feel like a bum now for not getting anything done today.

    jrr: That's really helpful - I've been trying to start "feeling the form" with my pencil more, but I guess I've gotten into the bad habit of describing planes with inaccurate, straight-line shading. I'll try to work on that.

    gloominati: all that positive energy, I love it! you remind me of bobby chiu, especially in your sketchbook. Thanks so much, I needed a kick in the bum today. I know what you're talking about, and I need to work WAAYYY harder!

    Only poop today. I don't even want to show it, but maybe I can make tomorrow's stuff look better if i post the crap now.

    Lala. Posemaniacs' 60 second gestures; I feel like maybe I'm doing these wrong because they're not very clean, but I'm really just trying to feel the movement, different forms..etc... I think they're helping me. More stuff in a bit~!

    Hm..weird day today. Discovered that i know NOTHING about hands, so tomorrow I will draw loads more. Also the few studies seem crap and flat but they were really, really helpful.

    LMAO at the handwritten comments on the studies! And the little shoes on that hand!

    The studies look good, as far as I can tell; you're kindof beyond me there. I'm wondering where the non-studies are, though. Are you waiting for a certain level of knowledge before you start doing other things? Finished drawings?

    Hey dude, your poses are looking a little sloppy, try and make the most of the drawing in the fewest lines. trust me sloppy lines are a bad habit!

    Long day!

    furiana: You caught me Well.. i do have non-study stuff, but I tend to just consider it as poop and thusly don't really post it. Mostly doodles..sloppy, bad lines..etc.. You're right though, I seriously need to work on more finished stuff, and forget feeling embarrassed.

    Diarum: Yeah.. you're right, I know. Its an issue I've been wondering about, I don't really know what to do with the posemaniacs stuff... on one hand I thought its best to get the form down by feeling it with my pen instead of just using lines, but cleaning them up is what I really need to do. I tried today, and it was really hard..

    Okay, some stuff today... Lots of hand studies.. :/ The ones from life are mostly just outlines to get basics down. Need more ugh

    .. an example of stuff from my head to show how poop i am at imagination drawings....

    ..and a really fun study from life. Yes, it proves exactly why people study perspective instead of just freehanding ellipses without knowing ANYTHING, but hey I had a good time

    I didn't even realize that some of those drawings were from imagination until I read your post. o.o The wagon is my favorite in this batch, though!

    ... Well, would you be up for a dare? You post one finished drawing, and I'll post one too! (I haven't posted any to my CA sketchbook, either!) Something small. What do you say?

    What have I got myself into?! :lol:

    ETA: It sounds like I have family coming over today. I'll try to have a finished drawing by tomorrow as well, but I might need an extra day.
