    Heya, thanks for posting on my sketchbook.

    I can't exactly critique you! But I really like your faces, especially those little charcoal ones on the previous page...

    I like the self portrait (although I was shocked to see you are a girl--for some reason I was sure you were a guy).

    I wanna see more digital paints from you! I see you complaining of being really beginner in it, but the only way to get better is to do it.

    Thanks for posting on my sketchbook ^^,
    I like your sketches, I like the features in your selfportrait, but i think the space between the nose and the chin is a little higher than it should be.
    that's it, have a nice trip ^^

    You are most welcome!
    The self portrait is looking good. I might have suggested a little subtle shading in the face, (like cheeks, more under the eyes) as you hinted at it in the eyes, nose and lips aswell. But nonetheless, it looks like a good sketch to me.
    Happy New Year!

    lol pretty good for a marker that's drying out. Just watch for proportion next time - I actually really like how you did the eyes

    My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

    Really good improvement in the latest batch - minor crit, watch your construction with the faces, a couple are a little wonky. Keep up the great work!

    Hooray! More comments, and a fifth page! I'm so excited.

    pixel cheetah: Hey there, thank you for your visit as well Try as I might, I cannot figure out what the word "pathcy" is meant to mean. Though I do agree that the fashion studies could benefit from a more coherent approach. They're a bit all over the place. Thanks!

    devastacio: Thanks! Her knee is a bit bothersome. I have a lot of trouble with bent legs. More studies are in order! I had a great New Year, did you drink your fill too?

    Pervy: You learned something? Do tell! They say that the best way to learn is to study your peers. I will do my best to keep stirring the pot.

    Spivak000: I'm not sure what you mean by "throw in more anatomy over the different forms", do you mean you want to see more construction lines? Sorry, maybe I'm not reading the sentence correctly I do agree that perspective plays a surprisingly important role with the figure! I'll have to work on this, it's apparent that I don't have a great grasp of it when I struggle to represent foreshortening. And as for my lips, I get that a lot haha!

    LtPlissken: Thanks, hope you had a great holiday!

    Lewis D: The charcoal ones eh? I'll have to do more. Maybe next time you stop by you'll see something you want to tweak I'll await your critique!

    Andrew Sonea: You thought I was a guy? Haha! It must be the manly way in which I draw And you are so right, more digital is in order!

    Gof: Hm, I think you're right. I was drawing my face from the little vanity mirror in my car, I think I may have exaggerated the perspective

    Aila: That's true, since I started shading the features, it seems a bit unfinished to leave the rest of the face untouched. I'll keep that in mind, thanks for the crit!

    My57: Yeah, the danged proportion. GAH. Thanks for calling me out! And thanks about the eyes, I was trying to find a compromise between a stylized ink and something of realism.

    monstertree: Always the wonky faces. Just means I gotta draw more! Thanks for the crit :nod:

    Parsakoira: No prob, and no kidding. You're always updating your effing sketchbook. I'll await your return

    Lang Oulk: Thanks for dropping by! I hope next time you can find something you can crit

    ...

    Turns out I had a little bit of an opportunity for some sketching over my trip. Nothing so awesome that I'm jumping for joy, but another reminder that life does not sit still for you. I sketched most of these in about 10 seconds or less. And the proportions show it. Oh and, as for the car, what an embarrassment! A rather sad attempt at perspective. I shouldn't jump into something quite as complex as a gently tapered box-type thing just yet with so many angles. Oh well, it was good practice.

    "Oh dear, now I am much too big!" cried poor Alice.

    Any crits on this at its baby stages would be super helpful! (I am attempting to do some digital stuff now...Behold the lameness!)

    I like the pigeon toe legs. I would consider having the arms/hands press more on the ceiling, and maybe ref a more surprised expression for dramatic effect.

    Dear Kiwi, I see that you are continuing to conquer the
    dark shadowed lands of Erathia, and that you are turning
    the gloomy mangled paths to a beautiful sunny roads.

    Your vigorous everlasting warrior soul has put you
    up to a mission that you should draw even on your
    camping trip, so that is the way you did. You showed once
    more to the world that you are a fearless vigilant drawing
    assassin, who never rest.

    Me, myself and I are all admiring to your courage and
    to your beautiful drawings. Say hello to sexy Alice.

    klortho: Is this a little better? She looks a bit befuddled, maybe not surprised enough?

    LtPlissken: Alice, meet Plissken. He thinks you're sexy. He also thinks that I am a fearless drawing assassin, which was meant to be a secret. I wonder what he thinks of you now that you have color? We shall see. He should know that I always appreciate every wonderful comment he takes the time to leave on my humble sketchbook.

    ...

    Here is a color splotch!

    Tada!

    Such a wonderfull sketchbook =)
    Your Alice is hot! (Sorry I have a weakness for sweet girls *blush*)
    Maybe her upperbody and head are a litte to small, while the arms are nearly ok. It looks like the headand upper body are far more behind the arms and so on. If you just (it's digital!! yay) scale it a bit bigger then you even get a slight more dramatic efect like klortho said. Cause the space will be even smaller =).

    Have fun!

    I can do so little in so much time!

    Hey there,

    Now you're into some serious work in this New year eh? Awesome!

    Oh dear, now I am much too big!" cried poor Alice.
    and i was wondering...."who the fish is Alice?" lol just kidding mate. I love it. Nice facial expression. face is kinda cute. interesting pose! :p Hair looks great but i would like to see more curvy hair stands.but its a minor thing. Her arms n legs; be more gentle on those. i would like to see more smooth curves as it adds to the feminine side. every straight line you draw adds to the masculine quality. so watch it. the perspective of the left arm and the hand looks odd to me. i thinks its because it isnt shaded yet.

    The colored 'Alice' looks really cool. hoping to see it finished. i like the skin tones and the cool colors on her cloths. its great because her face and her hair gets the first attention due to the color temperature. Then the user notices her expression. nice thinking!

    great job overall. will visit later to see the progress.

    Spivak000: I'm not sure what you mean by "throw in more anatomy over the different forms", do you mean you want to see more construction lines? Sorry, maybe I'm not reading the sentence correctly"

    Hey Kiwi,
    Sorry for not explaining myself better. I drew up an example to illustrate. So you could do a really loose gesture of a figure, put it aside, and then come back to it later and add little bits of structure to clarify the forms more. I'll sometimes do this with one of my artist anatomy books as reference. Its a way of seeing the different parts of the body better in 3 dimensional space. Now of course, any final art you do doesn't have to have these things if a more simplistic form is the goal. Here is a quickie and I am by NO MEANS an expert at this:

    Hi everyone! As always, thank you all sooooo much for taking the time to comment here! I try to return the favor every time It keeps me motivated and excited about art. That's what this is all about right? I hope I leave valuable comments for you guys too, it's a give and take -a friendship!

    OmertA: Thanks! I love them too, it's so wonderful that Carrol did his own illustrations in the beginning

    Joe777k7: HOWDY! Aw thanks so much! It took a lot of heckling from a beloved professor before I started letting go. Once I did, my drawing really started to kick off! I think I need to do some more careful stuff though, maybe I'm getting a little too loose

    Klaus Reinbach III: Thank you! Haha, I was surprised when people thought she was sexy and hot, but then, she is Alice I thought the girl from the newest movie was pretty cute too, strangely plain but beautiful. I was trying to draw her in perspective a bit, maybe I didn't quite exaggerate enough! And you're right, the arms are almost there. Too big I think. Hooray for the lasso tool!

    devastacio: Hee hee, you and your feminine ladies. Some of us are more muscular than others you know Though you're right, she's a bit young to have some of those angles. The hand is odd I've been in a bad habit of breezing over hands lately in the hopes that people won't notice how crappy they are! Obviously I've gotta face my fears. Thanks for callin' me out!

    qlotzan:

    Spivak000: Ohhh! I see now! That's actually a great idea And with the advent of digital technology, I can just use one of my crazy sketches in ps and not ruin it. hrmmm....I foresee some wonderful things to come from this suggestion. And thanks for showing me examples! I'm off to try this now...

    silvestri99: Thank you!

    catukas: really? is it because the corner lines are too big? Maybe I need more "housey" things like windows and shelves.

    ...

    And a strictly 20 min warmup from this morning. Does anyone have an astigmatism? I've been struggling sooo hard to see straight lines, and I can swear that things stretch and warp as I look at them. I almost have to pretend my way to an accurate-looking sketch because I see things weird. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I still suck at digital. Had to start over like...a lot. But here it is!

    Love your sketchies and alice is lookin good. Try to use biiiig brushes when working digitally! just throw in the big forms and blend Also the perspective on the cup seems a bit odd, i think its the lower part that is a bit off.
    Keep up the good work! you're improving loads

    Hey! You're sketchbook is so lively, a fun place to be! Like someone said before, you sketches have a really "free" feeling to them. Keep drawing and improving! Oh, and work on Alice a bit more, I like it! Good luck!

    Hey Kiwi,

    As someone mentioned the base of the cup might be a little bit off. It should be a rounder oval than at the top. The scratchy effect is neat. You might throw in a changeup and do one area with slower more orderly lines and another in the quicker looser style. See if they can work together.

    As far as seeing things in an odd manner, I think its safe to say that we all have our achilles heel when it comes to artmaking. For myself, my proportions and values are often off.

    Vodus: Thank you! Biiiiig brushes....I will do that! funky perspective as usual >_< practice practice practice! And thanks! It's so heart warming to hear that I am improving

    whisper_wm: Glad you enjoy it! I'll put some more work into Alice today, I'm happy she's getting some positive reviews! I need to get over my tendency to abandon stuff before it's finished...

    Spivak000: Ah! It is the base. I couldn't figure out where the weirdness was. Thanks for that! I think I exaggerated the perspective a bit, and shrunk the bottom. I'd like to try the style of line you suggested as well, I don't think the looseness is quite there in this piece. We'll practice together! And overcome our horrid Achilles heel!
