    Cas makes a mess.(I love big crits and I cannot lie)

    After lurking for a number of years here I decided it was time to pull my pants up and try to actually improve on what I've been trying to do for a while now. Or at least emulate.

    I'm aware that a lot of what I'm doing lacks depth and a great deal of basic knowledge about things. I intend to work on that here. I've been trying to improve by myself for about a year then I realised that hey, anatomy seems kind of important. So I fumbled about inexpertly for a bit then realised I had no idea what I was doing.

    Enter the idea that I should make a sketchbook here after scuttling about watching everyone elses for a while. Currently I only have digital work as because of a recent move to another country, I have no scanner.

    People motivate me to draw. I'm one of those creepy people that likes people watching. I think people are interesting. I enjoy drawing them, or at least attempting to.

    Waffle over.

    The images here are over the course of said year and the WIP is the most recent.

    More heads tomorrow. More minute sketches if I can grab someone who will stay still for that length of time.

    K well. It's clear to me that you know what you're doing in Photoshop. I especially like that last WIP, it's so striking! Its left eye (viewer's right) is too far out to the side, nothing a quick liquify can't fix.

    Good start on your figures! Can't say a lot since you haven't much yet, but try to use bolder lines instead of petting them all the time.

    Eager to see more work from you!

    Huray for being a creeper! sketching people is great practice and lots of fun (even if moderately creepy. )
    Seems like you have a good starting point as to what to work on. I found Bridgman books really good for figure drawing/anatomy so I definitely recommend them!

    @DairyProduct: I'm painting it using OpenCanvas 1.1 but you're quite right, it's a bit too far off. I'll sort that. Thank you for pointing it out, I'm awful at spotting these things.

    I'm quite scared of sketching tbh but I'll try the bolder lines and cuddle them less. Cuddle, pet? No? Hm.

    @Rhubix. Thank you, Bridgman books shall be added to the reading list when money appears. I'm a natural creeper. Most people over here don't tend to mind if I scribble and stare at them. Wrong weather for it at the moment.

    Fish. I hate fish. Do you like fish? I don't. Still, must learn to draw things I hate so that I'm better at things I enjoy? Is that how it works? Perhaps just a better appreciation when I draw something fun.

    More skulls and perspective boxes and heads.

    More work on WIP. Moved her eye and fiddled with her chin. Not much progress.

    Been sort of busy and concentrating too much on digital media. Going to try to spend April working through ink and watercolour again.

    Small update featuring a self portrait. Everything as usual made in opencanvas 1.1

    I like the colouring, but go gentle on the black outlining to mark shapes. :] ( In your first post )

    Otherwise great sketchbook. Keep up the work :]

    But I do love my outlining *clings*

    Thanks very much, I'm trying ease away from heavy outlines but I guess I find them...reassuring? Something like that.

    Sketches and silly bollocks because I don't have a scanner to post the rest of what I've done so far.

    30 second poses. Going to try doing more of these because quite frankly, I suck at drawing quickly.

    A weeks worth of 30 second figure drawings and a facial study that took me about 6-7 hours.
