    Matrej┤s sketchbook \ need advice

    Hi guys, I am new here. I used to upload my works to deviantart, but there I┤ve never get a good advice, just comments like: "lame","nice" etc.

    I finished the computer school with art subjects, like life figure drawing, photography, design etc., so I am not totaly beginer, but sometimes it looks like that

    I would be happy if I get some helpful advices.
    Now I can upload some older drawing, because I don┤t have a scanner or camera right now, so I hope, I will update with newer sketches soon.


    Figure drawing on big brown wrapping paper. most of them made with charcoal, one with color pastels(I know that one sucks). I don┤t really like half of them, but I think it would be a good thing to see some improve.

    hi! 1st of all, deviant sucks big time..you don't any advice from there..i think at deviant art as image hosting server..
    anyways, your drawings look nice, but you should pay some more attention to details, and i'm talking about the life drawings. watch more carefully the angles of your model, if u do that, your drawings will look more realistic until you get some anatomy knowledge..
    keep it up!

    Hello

    Your works are getting better and better. In latests there is a lot of improvement. With digital works, try blending the colors more. Also with skin tones, try to use different hues. For example cold colors for lights and warm colors for shades or vice versa. Also you can use for example more red on nose and cheeks and so on. Keep drawing and posting dude!

    thx guys for posting comments Yeah I know I need to work on depth and color. DRAW! I feel kind of lazy
    Anyway, I started to read the Figure drawing for all its worth by Andrew Loomis and I think everybody could learn a lot from him.

    first, your stickmen are sometimes off balance (and i dont mean the walking ones)
    second, doing copies (especially loomis copies) is fine, but in addition to that, do some your own. andy stresses this very often in his books
    keep drawing

    Good stuff

    The concepts above are pretty cool

    I see you started doing some bridgman as well as the loomis stuff. I would suggest that you take one of the books and draw every picture in the book. By the end of one of the books you will have learned tons! Its good drawing practice and you have learned lots of anatomy!

    Help wanted

    Ok so I tried this awesome tool.
    gesture drawing
    I configure that on 30 sec, but then I figured, that is too short for me right now.(you can see on the first picture and half of the seccond-total fail) So I turned it to 60 sec and after some time I saw some little progress. Tonight I┤ll repeat this technique, because it looks that it working.

    You've got some pretty good sketches in here -- I particularly like the caricature psycho and octopus girl. Eraiasu's suggestion about re-drawing images in Bridgman's books is good advice (I myself have done that previously and posted some of them in my sketchbook).

    Another piece of advice that I've come across is that when you do rough sketches of the figures in Bridgman, Loomis, etc. you can try re-drawing them with greater detail by finding real pictures of people in the same/similar poses (this is so you can observe the musculature etc.).

    Best of luck!
