today i did some arm & feet studies (the feet were for figuredrawing class) and sketched around a bit. there's a selfportrait and posemaniacs mixed in there too. i attempted doing an environment study but I quickly realized that I had no idea how to approach it, so I abandoned it. uhh and I painted a tomato and an orange next to each other, but I ran out of time, and I only finished the tomato. the rest are sketches from imaginaion... they show how little I retain from study! :( gotta start thinking more when I do studies.
First, thank you for your crits on my SB
I must say I really like what i see here!! I like your faces a lot, all of them, and especially I like how you can sketch them in digital...the lines are so nice.
And I LIKE the gestures in post #3, they look alive and smooth...subscribed to your thread and waiting to see more!! ^_^
Nice going....specially as your just 16.....yeesh I wasted my time as teenager! I really like your linework very flowy and organic, just dont be afraid to tighten up some lines too. Having a variation of lines can really add to a pic!
Well I'm subscribing! keen to watch some progress. I like the dedication, that's what i need, give me some of yours
my main critique would be your figures, some of them look a little stiff and some have limbs at weird angles? the mj's look good though, I'd say practice gesture lines, try get you figures flowing. the animal sketchs are awsoem though really sweet, nice lines and gesture
look forward to more I'm watching this S#$@!!! DRAAAAWWWW!!! lol

@Oatestwder - ahh yea i know! stiffness all over i always seem to mess up center of balance/ can't think of poses/can't visualize limbs in different poses, lol. working on it >< thank you for the critique!
@Eddieee - yes I am! ooh awesome, are you applying for illustration too? if so, i sure need to catch up
@Devrak - thank you! yes i will :3
i've been keeping up better drawing habits than usual because of this sketchbook btw, really glad i finally decided to make one.
today i didn't have anything at all to bother me, i literally had the whole day to draw and i got up early just for that purpose...
but i still ended up wasting half of the day away :| sigh. i can never seem to work long in digital either (unless i'm doing studies) cause the internet distracts me, heh. i have terrible self control.
normal sketchbook stuff, 2 half-reffed faces, a stiff figure with strange buggy eyes and a peach, which i ate right after painting.
note to self - stop putting so much space between eyes
