    Nicole's sketchbook. Now Updated Daily!

    Since I plan on having an art career, it would be super awesome to show my work now and get some critiques. I've been drawing for most of my life but a few years ago I decided to crack down and actually learn to draw. Unfortunately, I was still stagnate for a long time because I was still misguided. Just for reference, I've taken a few art classes so I'm no longer "self taught."

    Starting April 10th, 2015 (page 7), I will update everyday. I've been getting slack so to keep myself accountable, I'll upload daily, no excuses. I'll probably kick myself later.

    More sketches. I've been working on mass conception, it's amazing how much more solid things look now. I tried it on the hands and the couple. The kids in the family started out as skull studies. And I had issues with the pelvis so I'll have to get back to that one. The pelvis is brutal.

    More sketches. In the hatching excercises and the still life, I took the advice of a cross hatching tutorial somewhere here on CA. I don't remember the exact thread.

    A few skulls were copied out of an anatomy book and a few I tried to draw based on what I remembered.

    The people at the bottom I drew while watching Bourne Identity (great movie btw) and Pitt Boss.

    Yesterday I did some eyes. A few were from observation, but I also did some from my imagination. I wanted to put eyes on a face so I drew the guy.

    Hi!

    Cool progress! Keep that up, you're doing great! I noticed the adult faces (and body proportions in the top picture look more young than you may have intended. The bodies of the couple seem a little scrunched together, makes them appear shorter. I think some heads look young because they're more rounded, mainly at the cheeks and jaw. Might just be something to look at for later on. The kids look adorable!

    Very nice work on the eyes!

    Thanks for your input. I can see what you mean about the skull space. They look like little kid heads and they're supposed to be adults (except that one skull with just a line for a mouth). I'll keep your crit in mind.

    I like how you draw your strokes (especially on the hand drawing). The crisp quality looks confident and is pleasing to the eye.

    I love how you drew the guy on your last post! The nose is well done (the proportions are great too!).

    Thursday I started my life drawing class. My teacher wants to make sure we really get gestures and understand why we're doing them so we did 1 minute gestures the whole class. That was extremely useful. Apparently in gestures, I concentrate too much on outlines. so here are the fruits of my labor.

    More gestures. Also, all these are done in 4B charcoal pencil. The last one was interesting. We had 5 minutes to do a gesture, he made us erase it and change the composition, and made us erase and redraw it 2 more times. The composition we liked the most got fleshed out.

    I did more gestures. This time from my imagination on PS. Also another face. I promise I'll draw something different.

    Hi there,

    Congrats on starting the classes, they should help you no end! I would suggest looking at some classical academic drawing, such as that by Bammes ('Dynamis anatomy') or Bridgman to get an idea of where you may want to head with quick life sketches (which can be amazing).

    Keep going with the practice, it's great,

    Best wishes,

    Ana

    I drew some random gestures. Aaaaand... perspective! See, I said I'd do something different. I was trying out multiple view points and am fairly certain it's wrong. I have some more rectangle drawings laying around from Labor day weekend, I should dig those up.
