I've decided to devote some more time to art. So, I'm going to post daily (hopefully), and we'll see where that takes me!
I'd like to thank MindCandyMan, who is an amazing inspiration for me!
I've had no formal schooling or tutoring, but I love to draw! Please give me constructive feedback! Thank you!
Did some shading, figure drawing.
Drawing is great!
Here's day 3! Perspective! I'm working out of "Drawing Comics the Marvel Way." I think I'll work on anatomy with Loomis tomorrow. Faces are hard!
I got an art gum, kneaded eraser, and a factis 18 black eraser yesterday! They're all awesome!
Today, I did some Loomis stick figure drawings.
I like how you used perspective in day 2 first post. One of my first how to draw books I bought was "Drawing Comics the Marvel Way" Not bad but of course it completely lacks anatomy, so it is a good idea to complement it with Loomis or Bridgman. When drawing the face try to deconstruct it into shapes just like a car can be deconstructed into shapes. So, for example when drawing the nose don't just draw a big bump but try to find the shapes that build up the nose. Good start keep it up!
Thank you so much for your praise! You don't know how good that made me feel! You made my day. Thank you!
I drew some more hands, and another page of Loomis stick figures.
Hands! They're the hardest bloody things to get right. Good place to start then. Nice studies so far, but don't forget to just draw stuff for the hell of it. Too many studies and you'll get bored, or make drawing regularly into another chore, then it's hard to maintain your motivation. I know I've fallen into that trap before, and probably will again. So keep an eye on that, and good luck!
Bring out your crits, asspats, and assorted comments
I got me a sketchbook...
Slow, yet hopefully steady, improvement. This way
Today, I played with my Wacom a bit. I also bought a new sketchbook to carry around everywhere I go.
The Sceptical Saint:
thank you so much for your kind words! Although I didn't draw too many fun things to day (barely drew at all), I'll be sure to post them tomorrow. Thank you for the heads up! By the way, about your signature thingy that you are wonder about, you do this:
-->replace the @ with a "u" (without the quotes). I can't do that in this post, or else I'll make a link!
Replace the URL and the text, and you're good to go! Sorry if those instructions are confusing. I can clarify if need be.
Hey, thanks for posting in my sketchbook!
Keep the basic studies up, consistency is key. The more you are practicing the better! Im at the same point as well. Its not easy, but keep those drawings coming.

I got a new sketch book! (a physical one) It's awesome! I love it. I'm gonna carry it everywhere I go.
I haven't been drawing too much these days, but I'll post a bunch sometime (hopefully tomorrow).
AliceA: Thank you! My stick figures are improving, bit by bit. I'll make them jump around soon too.
SageTso: You're welcome! I'll keep drawing. Thank you for your kind words.
