    Finally back after nearly one year

    Update: After nearly one year I'm back and starting again from the very beginning.

    Hello everybody!
    This will be my SB. I started drawing just a few weeks ago and due to my work and other hobbys I don`t have the time to draw as much as I should
    But I`m trying as much as I can.

    C&C very welcome!
    Hope to read from you

    Some of my drawings are from reference, most not.

    This week I`ll only draw womens heads for practize. I`ll post some soon.

    Try to use 100% values or at least 60% then you'll avoid having bumpy textures in your paintings like the ones in the eye sketch. Try to do some value sketches of some spheres. You'll see that shadows on them are more gradient like.

    Work freely don't get stresed if something does'l look so good (have fun when drawing that' the most important )
    Work with reference
    Do more life drawings try to do your darks more dark (a softer pencil maybe 2b and higher)
    Also like everybody says draw as much as you can and give it time.
    and keep practising
    my first post
    Looking for my pencil did you see it ?

    With pencil I was always told start light then work with a 2b or higher. I recommend drawing in pen to sharpen your eye really look at what your subject is.

    I would recommend to draw as many things from life as you can. It helps a lot and if you are tired of it grab a photo you like and draw this instead.
    Furthermore try different mediums. Maybe you can learn from that as well.
    Last but not least: Draw every day! Daily exercise makes the difference.
    With that you will most likely improve as long as you are willing to keep drawing.
    Have fun and best wishes,

    Warforce17

    maybe it's best to be honest? it's not a great start. it's better to be honest. it's a start.


    personally, i would ditch all the manga stuff. go and observe people from life first. then go back to manga if you like, later.
    my collaborative

    join to me to make beautiful drawings.

    The lines look pretty neat on some of them but this last drawing, even though its well drawn, it still looks a little flat. I would study trying to make things look more 3D. Drawing from real life, like everyone is saying helps you to get a feel for the 3D form.

    Upload some more! I'd love to see more of your stuff ^^
