    My Sketchbook. Critique wanted and needed!

    Hello! This is my second sketchbook now. The first was too cluttered with crap. Heh.

    Anyways, I'm starting afresh in hopes of getting more critique on my imaginative and study works.

    Also, I am 17(Now 18 as of July 2011), female, from New England and it's been almost a year since I started seriously drawing/digitally and traditionally painting.

    Anyways, hope to improve!

    another 17! Well, I'm not one yet but anyway

    I think you can afford to use larger brushes or else the small strokes start to bog things down. like the purple alien's cloak.

    It seems like nobody (not on this site, others) is interested in my stuff very much.

    What should I be drawing? I mean, what would be good to practice for the non existant potential I have?

    You will benefit a lot from both still lifes and anatomy practice (human and animal). You've got some good creativity goin on with your drawings, I'm sure if you just start you're studies you will make some pretty cool things

    i agree, some human and animal anatomy practise, still life is very good aswell helps you see the colours you wouldn't normaly think are there, if you compare it to a photo, also mabye give a shot at a speed painting, just go nuts with the brush strokes but try to make them useful in a way, look at these two speed paintings
    http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&se...nting#/d12ok2w
    http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&se...nting#/d168e2b

    mabye start the art session by doing a quick one in similar style to just losen up
    then again all just a personal opinion

    Hi thanks for visiting my sketchbook. You have really nice ideas and composition, I think your great strength is with colors. I agree with the people above, anatomy and still life study is a great start. Figure drawing books are good too, I personally like those of Loomis, they're great. Study values, lighting and shapes it'll spice up your colors even more. These are just my suggestions, I'm still learning too. Keep it up, you're doing great!

    Oh oh! Long time no see, really love the ideas you're coming up with! The colourings getting better too, though I think you need to fill this one up with more studies.

    hey thanks for dropping by my sketchbook

    have you got pressure sensitivity enabled on your tablet? in the last piece especially you are using flat tones of 100% opacity so they dont seem to blend very well. definitely start using this option of your tablet if you're not.

    you've probably heard it a million times but definitely check out some anatomy books, loomis, hogarth, bridgman et al. after a while studying those and drawing from life with what you've read in mind you will begin to improve no end.
    keep it uppp!

    Raffix- Thanks! I'll try. Cheers!

    Jiri92- Haha. Yeah, Chinese dragons are my favourite, hence why I draw them alot. And, certainly!



    Well, I have nothing to show today, but I made this...it's a comparison, same characters, different dates. I thought it was funny.

    Good work. Without restating what Raffix said to much. We want to see some life studies. looking into the authors that Raffix mentioned is a good start. The Loomis books are available free as PDF's. They shouldn't be to hard to find. I suggest looking at Loomis and Bridgman first before Hogarth. I would recommend taking some life drawing courses or simply take a sketch pad and start drawing people at a coffee shop or library.

    Liking the skull! Think you could get away with a touch more contrast though, anyways, keep up the good work as always.

    Thanks. And noted.

    For this next study, I upped the contrast by shutting of the lights save for one far off lamp. Tried to copy the intense contrast in the skull...but failed. Oh well. Next time.

    I really appreciate and want crits, as usual.

    Your doing great. I really love these last few images. When you are constructing a body, break the parts into simple geometric shapes first, then bulk out the figure. Keep up the good work.

    Hi, the best advice I can give you is to take your time with your studies. You have an eraser for a reason. If something doesn't look right you can EASILY erase it, I erase ALL the time when I'm planning a picture.

    Tacomeat- Thanks for the crit! I'll keep that in mind for tomorrow.

    Kennethhunter- Thanks! I'll do two big studies tomorrow, and take my time with them rather than many small ones.

    Cheers!

    In the mean time, here's a WIP redo of that older dragon picture. And A Wip Sea monster picture.
