    andrew ken ~ slow hand

    Hey everyone! I've realised I really don't know how to draw and I'm determined to start learning seriously.

    All crits and observations are extremely appreciated!


    Thank you

    more sketches, there is a little outdoor/indoor stuff and I started Andrew Loomis's Head drawing book and his Figure drawing book.

    the animals are done from photo ref, the hands are my left

    this is all I managed today:

    The ball was done from imagination, trying to do some "value". I'd never really tried it before. I tried to do the same with the mouse, just noticing the bigger "blocks" of darkness and lightness and distinguish them properly.

    the little bits on my desk helped me see how hard i find it to draw simple smooth lines and things with proper perspective

    could anybody give me some pointers? anything is helpful, thanks

    i got deflated and demotivated the past few days but today I was back on my hands.

    I did some more loomis heads, and then some figure poses while watching Appleseed (Which I didn't like and I soon realised wasn't any good for poses because they make the legs ultra long and the torso extra short; but I noticed the nose-eye to ear proportions were still right).

    I then did some from Jackie Chan's Legend of Drunken Master movie

    I realised that when drawing from life I have the tendency to try and quickly scribble and bang something out without really looking at it. I guess this comes from a strange idea that you have to draw real subjects in real-time (and since they move so quickly you have to kinda bang out the lines). But I guess the real trick is to observe well, and then just carefully put a few lines right where they need to go? I'll practice that.

    Nice start! Some of those hands look very good and the pencil work on the animal sketches compliments the hair and form nicely! For learning perspective, I think there's some very good exercises at the first lesson of environmentoring. Keep the Loomis studies coming, they'll do you lots of good.

    Great start to your sketchbook here! I would give some advice but I'm fairly inexperienced. I say, keep going!

    its only been 5 days since my last update yet it feels like two weeks.
    I've done loads of figure sketches, so I'll just upload the "better" ones.

    I've noticed that after some time, I start to understand the shapes better and get a sort of intuitive grasp on how the body is shaped, each drawing session it gets slightly easier for me to "get" this.
