    Akali Singh's Sketchbook

    So ive finally gotten back into drawing and yes i suck, but i dont care...
    Ive started to sketch everyday even though i work full time.

    im waking up everyday at 4 am to draw for 3 hours before heading off to work and at least 12 hours on weekends.

    Please critique the hell out of my work !

    Thank You

    Wow!

    I see improvement already on these bad boys!

    Just keep up the (extremely) good work, and I'll be checking back. For now, I would suggest you try and make things as true to the observations as possbile, as it will make your progress that murch quicker.

    Good job mate!

    Welcome to your new sketchbook! You're drawing a lot, which is a great habit to nourish. :]
    allow me to suggest a warmup exercise for your mornings: http://www.pixelovely.com/tools/gesture.html
    give yourself a minute or a bit more to study gesture in figures.erik gist offers a good process to help you see that line of action, as well as build forms on that.

    And here are some links for your head drawing needs.

    http://www.fineart.sk/?cat=14

    i'm linking a number of head instruction books and demos because i'm not sure how you learn best.
    pick one that clicks with you and study diligently.

    Hey there! You're working hard on those faces.

    I recommend abandoning the circle/line thing. You're getting the classic "skull too small, face too long and thin" problem that comes with that approach. Instead, roughly draw the organic shape of the face first, then refine it. Everybody has a differently shaped head for different reasons, so when you approach them all from the same way, they look the same, and they all have the same mistakes!

    Good luck
