    r-uoi's Sketchbook Scribblings (Amateur)

    Hello, I hope I don't get this horribly wrong, I am a wannabe artist trying to force myself to improve and critiques would be very much appreciated. : )

    I have some doodles and a pencil drawing to offer:

    Awww yeah!

    Good drawings, they're lively and rather varied in poses and perspective.
    Keep on experimenting!
    Hope to see moar soon.

    Nice work! I agree with Naidy that the poses are a strong point. Maybe try working one of those figures into a more finished composition.

    (aha I feel like a right doofus)

    I agree with the others, your strong point is definitely your ability to experiment with poses and perspectives, and I'd like to see a finished piece using these unusual perspectives and poses- Sometimes you seem to be a lot more experimental in your sketches than your finished pieces.

    Here's a little self-portrait thing I coughed up digitally not long ago, although my tablet gave up the ghost this morning so therein lies a problem...

    Oh here are some more doodley scraps too, the first of which being the result of spying on people from a balcony.

    The self-portrait's the best picture I've seen of you so far, the skin colouring and shading is excellent. It seems to put a little less depth into shading the clothes compared to the skin though, especially the tshirt.

    The little figure drawings are cool too, I'm sure they'll help you speed-draw. : D

    I forgot to post yesterday D| oops

    Either way here's a half sketch I did earlier today (I have no idea who it is, he was on some magazine cover) - I'd like to know if there are any more effective ways of shading that could be suggested...

    His face isn't quite right but hopefully it's not too far off xD

    I love that your showing some cartoonish styles and also some realistic images as well.

    (Concept art really hates me today so sorry for any double posting)
    Ah! Shading ideas aye? My Mum always tells me not to smudge because it makes things seem messy when they're in pencils.
    I myself so a kind of small circular pattern or just scribbles. xD
    Remember that thing we always had to do every year in art with the different marks you can make? if you fish that out and try shading people in those sorts of ways you might find a technique you love the look of.

    Anyways, I really like how you've drawn that man, he looks really realistic.

    I do like how you drew his eyes, there's a lot of expression in them.

    As for shading, I'm learning pretty much the basics at the moment so I'm not of much help, but perhaps try experimenting with using heavier shading to create more contrast?

    @jellyswirl Thanks xD It's mostly because I don't have a constant style at all :')

    @Naidy Haha thanks - I tend to do that smudgy thing (out of laziness usually) I forgot about that mark making stuff too, tar : D

    @RoisterDoister Yeh you're right, that's been suggested a few times to me, I need to take notice

    This is an experiment I did with colour, I'm far more used to black and white so colour is kind of intimidating for me |D
    It's Paul McCartney if you couldn't tell hurr

    This is really making me aware of my own inconsistency, I have no style and dabble in random mediums =A=

    Watercolour WIP - any advice?

    Dabbling in different mediums is good - and many will point out style will come to you in time by itself. So dont force it.
    Keep up all the experimenting!

    @RedSquirrel Thank you - I do hope you're right : )

    This is the partly done lineart of a Beatles drawing that I'm having a problem with, but I'm not sure how to fix said problem... Something is wrong with the arm positioning, anyone care to correct me? <: D

    HEY YOU, YES.
    YOU!

    I am bloody loving that watercolour you're working on.
    And to be honest, at our age, style is more of a hinderance than a help.
    Keep on exploring, keep on studying, chances are as you go on you naturally start showing signs of a style. If people focus on styles too early they can end up being 'locked' into it.
    Which has happened to me. xD But I'll get out of it.

    So anyways, keep up the good work!
