    organic mechanic - saku's sb (texture week!)

    Hello, and welcome to my sketchbook!

    A little bit about myself:
    I'm 21-year-old guy from Finland. I pretty much started to really practice drawing only less than a year ago. I'm trying to become better at art and get to study architecture in uni next year, so any and all critique is most appreciated!

    architecture, i suggest you look into perspective, buildings, industrial design maybe measurement drawings. as for your anatomy, it needs alot, but i would say consentrate on landscapes and enviroments stuff like that might help more. try speedpainting on photoshop
    I hope to be the best i can be... nothing less

    Okay here's what I'm been up to - trying to figure out how shadows work. Some orthographical and some in perspective. These are from Francis D.K Ching's "Architectural Graphics". Having some trouble, mistakes at least in fifth and sixth pic.

    Ah, nice start you have here.
    I quite like the perspective studies, and the torsos you did up there.

    I have no input when it comes to landscapes and the like but I'd say when you're doing figure studies it's good to know more about what lies under the skin, so looking up anatomy is good, I have an anatomy book myself called 'pocket anatomy' by Christopher Joseph, it's really handy to have.

    And another thing that's good for figures is self portraits (which I see you've done) and of course, Loomis. If you google loomis you're bound to come across his books which are brilliant.

    Keep up the good work!
