    A beginner's sketchbook

    I have been hesitating to post here, but after I've been told that my drawings have no life in them and my performance being below average in my class, I figured that this is the best place for me to see where I went wrong and to correct them.

    Please do criticize. Thanks in advance.

    good studies, you have a very good trace, perhaps is time give some shadows, give a light-dark contrast

    Study structure more, it will help. Preferably get Michael Hampton book, it will help you more than any art school. Good line though.

    You've got nice lines indeed but you seem to overuse those curvy lines. Like Ellinov said, you need to work more on structure to give a sense of solidity to your figures. Also pay more attention to proportions. Keep it up!

    These are a few other attempts that I managed through today...

    Oh, I wished I have seen the comments before my exercise! I've never expected replies in this very crowded place, maybe 1 or 2, you have no idea how much your comments mean to me. I thank you all so so much. I thought my drawings look rather flimsy too, thanks for pointing it out. Would try to look for Micheal Hampton book that EllionV mentioned about.

    Thank you guys!
