niia's supermagical sketchbook of durp-durp-yness~~
id be lying if i said i wasnt kind of terrified to post my stuff here... everything is so amazing, so i feel like some spacey kid drooling on herself in the corner while she scribbles on the wall in crayola comparatively. durp. i'm kind of shy about this whole deal.
i stopped drawing entirely for a really long time, which was kind of sad of me. but i started again..and hopefully i can learn to not suck with enough practice. :3
i have a horrible habit of beginning something, throwing myself into it, then losing focus halfway through, never to touch it again. my life is a neverending pile of half finished nonsense. i kindasorta need to work on not doing that.
but yeeea, i like comments, critiques, etc.. anything helps. :3 i am not cool enough for a scanner yet and using my tablet at the moment produces results that may lead one to think i was partially blind, so please forgive the icky quality.
i write alot of angry notes to myself while im drawing.. so uh, sorry about those too.

separately the head and torso look very nice. But be careful about fitting the 2 together. Right now the head/face comes through a little too big.
But I like it, looks confident and the lines are nice. Time to draw more!!

various.. things i have done. unsurprisingly, i never finish anything.
mouths are also the bane of my existance.. as you can see, particularly in the last one. all sorts of wrong.

Now that you posted some more;
I really do like these. You get shapes down with values, which again adds to the 3d effect. The first lady in your last post does not seem to suffer of this syndrome you talk of

charcoal.. i always had a truly horrible aversion to them.. theyre messy, they're smudgy, i look at it the wrong way and theres a huge black blob on my page. but im trying.
her mouth really made me want to stab things. its definately still not right, but there is WAYYY too much charcoal down to fix it, and attempts to refine it seem to only make things worse. oh well.
she looks rather like a floating head.. in an ideal world i will finish her shoulders and draw in her neck/arms properly.

was playing with the sphere exercise over in the peer project thread. i am really clueless when it comes to my tablet.. feels like im drawing with my left hand or something.
i havent the slightest idea where the shadow would be cast, so hes kinda.. floating on a badly drawn shadow that makes no logical sense. :l

a purple hand and some eyes from a few months ago... will probably do something similar with mouths soon.. cuz i really, really need the practice. i find my tablet.. frustrating to say the least. left side of the hand looks completely unfinished compared to the rest... i dont quite know what i was thinking with that.

Hey - awesome start to a sketchbook! For someone who sounds so unconfident about their drawing ability and their finishing of pieces you are seriously good!
No idea about how much art tuition you've had but Id definitely recommend anything by hogarth or Loomis for portraiture. As well as having big heads they often seem to have big eyes (which is characteristic of "sexy" females but too big and they can end up looking like a bush baby!). Keep up the good work and hopefully comments like this will help you to keep on drawing!

Yeah, I really like what you did with that ball - should push the values a bit more, and try using a hard edge brush.
Keep up the good work - sacks

vertical: thank you, and yes i definately do. ive been doing alot of mouth studies lately and i think im improving, maybe a little, hah.
thomasm: thank you, that means alot! ive learned about them, but it was at a time in my life when i was more concerned with "get the assignment done and go take a nap" vs actually absorbing anything if it didnt automatically pique my interest. bad me. i need to revisit it. the big eyes are partially on purpose - i tend to exaggerate them because i think theyre the most interesting feature.. sometimes i can go a little overboard though, lol.
pixelflux: my ball says thank you. and thank you for showing me all those brushes. :3
