    Seleens Sketchbook

    Hopefully this is what sketchbooks also are used for. Hehe!
    I'm currently drawing on a rather difficult head pose and I ... stuck, so to speak...

    Looking at the picture it looks kind of wrong around the chin area. I used a reference and changed and compaired and changed again but somehow it just looks... "wrong"?

    Greatful for any help! Thank you! ^^

    It actually looks okay to me. It might just be the thick lines which make it look out of place compared to the original sources you used.

    Hmmm... first: thank you for the quick answer!
    second: nevertheless I think there is something wrong... but I can't say what.

    Hi Seleen, is that a female elf? If she's a female elf, maybe the chin can be a little pointier. Nice drawing and welcome to CA =)

    Keep going, keep drawing!

    Hehe, thank you for the nice welcome.
    No, he's a male. I tend to draw males with (very) female faces.
    So you also would say there is nothing... "suspicious"? x)

    Oh and, I've seen your sketchbook. Andrew Loomis, right?

    Hi, I went to take try a pose in the mirror and did an edit of your drawing, hope you don't mind.

    I think maybe the weird part is the bulge coming out below the chin, the muscle maybe should be pulled tight and straight.

    And yup, I'm doing studies on Andrew Loomis' book. I'm currently studying the figure drawings =)

    ... ... ... Hell, I love you! XD
    Thank you for "borrowing" your male chin! Haha! That's it! Now it looks good! I've tried a little bit around with the chin myself, correcting the neck and tried another perspective on the colarbone area, but oh well. Thanx a bunch!! *hug*

    That's some really great drawings you have in your SB! =)
    Keep it! I've read his book myself some years ago and did studies based on them! The more you draw his guidlines the more you burn them in your head! Haha! Good luck! Thank you again for help!! ^^

    You're welcome Seleen =)
    Yup, using ownself as a reference is good too, I've seen some good artist use their hands for references in their character drawings, like those grasping a spear.

    Thank you, Andrew Loomis' book is good for proportion studies. Haha I hope to really burn them into my head by practising more. It helps. Good luck to you too and hope to see your new drawings!

    Keep going, keep drawing!

    Whenever I need a hand pose I always use myself as a reference.

    Not so much for the face mind you, because my face is rather unique and odd.

    @pisces_painter: oh, when it comes to hands or other parts female and male body "share" in proportions I always use myself! : )
    Unfortunately the male and female face is wayyyy too different. Haha. xP
    Thank you! You too! : D

    @Ultarant: same as I said before: I always use my own hands and feet for any picture but faces and the body shape itself I rather use my boyfriend (when it comes to males) when he's around. Haha. xP

    Again thank you very much! Both of you!
    It really helped me! Hope to hear more great help again! ^^

    "Completed" this sketch of Avorias two days ago. I don't think I'm going to finish it the next time.
    For the body I used a reference. Critiques and thoughts are always welcome.

    I'm currently working on this portrait of Sebastian Michaelis but something seems a little off here. I don't know if it's because he's engulfed in darkness on one side of his body or if it's something else (too).

    What else would help me is a good critique on my colour palette. I know I still have little problems in choosing a wide range of "different" colours. So what do you think?

    I'm greatful for any help. Thank you!
