Hi, my name is Jérôme, i'm portuguese.
This is my first time posting here, well, to be honest, first time posting sketchs on net xD.
Like you can see, i'm not really good on english, i'll do my best to get my self clear xD
Well, i'm posting some sketchs to get some help so i can improve myself, i'm a litle bit lazy, i hope that this can help me. Anyway, i'm not a pro, i allways loved to draw, but like i said before im lazy thats why im not really good. i started college this year, i came from economie on highschool, to art on college, lol, its kinda diferent, but thats what i want and since i never had drawing classes i hope i will finish it xD
So pls give me your opinion so i can be better.
Sorry for my english...

good job on starting your sketchbook, the people here are very helpful!
I think your strongest drawing so far is the horse, but the drawing below that is good too.
It looks like from the man sitting at the table you are have a hard time with perspective, you might want to check out this thread. Also, you've probably heard this around the forum already but you can't go wrong getting some andrew loomis and george brigdeman books. Loomis is out of print but you can get pdfs of his books online.
Keep posting more, you're off to a good start!

a note on your hands - its worth taking a look at your hands and "figuring out" the different lengths of the fingers and joints. something I found helpful was to just draw some really simple rectangles (observing your non-drawing hand), but making sure to get the joint-distances totally right, and understand them proportionally. like, 1st and third finger are almost identical, middle finger has the same layout but each segment is longer, and little finger's nuckle starts earlier and its 2nd joint coincides with the other finger's first joint. get what i mean?
Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.

some great drawings here! i see that you have some skills in rendering but your form structure is suffering a little. have you done many planes studies? i had a similar problem then i went and studied how see planes in form and it helped my rendering so much

nice start to a sketchbook! If there is one thing that regularly visiting conceptart.org will do, its stop you being lazy! Some of the people on here are crazily dedicated and there is no end of inspiration. Looking forward to seeing this sketchbook a few pages larger.
I have no crits for you except just keep on drawing, draw draw draw all the time!

matty_mcmullen: Thank you. Sorry for asking that but what do you mean with planes? if you are talking about landscapes, well, i never did studies (sorry but i'm not really good in english )
ThomasM: Yeah, i've been visiting CA for long time before i started my sb, and like you said theres a lot of inspiration. And after watching this amazing artist i decided to make my SB to get some critiques and improve with them

Thanks for commenting my sketchbook.
You are doing fine!
I would suggest to do more studies because i think you really cant do enough studies at the beginning.
Have fun with basic shapes, copy movie scenes, study values and such things
Keep it up!
