    Sketchbook-Quick Doodles

    Okay, this is a sketch that I did both to pass the time and to practice drawing one character's face from different angles and making sure that it looks like the same character. For that purpose I admit that she is a rather generic character, but this was only for practice purposes. I would really appreciate some feedback on aspects of this sketch that I could improve on.

    Enlarged Locket Sketch

    Okay, this is a locket that I drew as a break from drawing manga (hehe, yeah, I focused a lot on that). It was quite refreshing. Also the background on this was rushed and this is not drawn in actual size (obviously).

    Hi there, welcome to CA and I like manga too! Though I'm learning how to draw it. The character sketches are great.
    Keep going, keep drawing!

    This is another sketch I did. I drew my brother (well I tried, he doesn't like to sit still for long). I started with his eye, then yeah. Also the thing that looks like a bad ghost (according to my brother) is a towel that I draped over a door knob. Also the round thing in the left hand corner is a caricature of myself...yeah my face is not that round.

    yet another sketch of my brother from behind. the main problem i encountered was, again, getting him to stay still.

    Hi, how are you? I'm not very familiar with manga, as it's not my style- do hope to get into it one day tho!

    In terms of your character, I think it's good. I don't see anything really wrong with it. I would suggest studying anatomy-- a lot of anatomy. But wait, scratch that...

    I don't know how many people suggest this, but what I personally found help me out was drawing box rotations, ellipse rotations, and just general shape rotations, start with 2d shapes, 2d letters, and 2d number rotations... I know that sounds really wierd. But trust me, do this for a week or a month and you'll see yourself jump to a higher level. It's like eating vegetables, because you get bored really quick- like "what Am I doing?? AAARRGH!"... But It's simply understanding form and perspective. Do that, and you'll improve quicker in no time!

    well, peace. keep it coming!
