    lol super late update, had a busy but fun day,
    its so hard to balance social life and drawing.
    i feel like i should draw to have a better future,
    but what the point of having a better future without friends and fun?
    oh well...
    idont know if this one makes sense, used only 2 colors, pretty boring i guess, im halfassleep

    There's a good start with the life drawings. But try to care more about the proportions. The legs are getting very small compared to the upper body. But you have some nice forms there. I hope you can do some more lifedrawings, they will help you.

    Some words about digital stuff: try to use bigger brushes, make not so many small strokes. That will look more confident and stick to the shapes.
    And how about blending? Are you using pen pressure? It would be nice to see how you blend colours

    Hey! Your studies look great. Try not to lose the character of the lines in the archer (post #43) as you paint. But, keep up the great work!

    Nice figures and anatomy studies
    About your digital stuff (that doesn't suck that much as you say IMO but I know the feeling when you look at your own work for long and see flaws everywhere, because, if you're perfectionist, there are they): as Valyavande said, use bigger brushes. And higher opacity at the beginning. You should lower it when at the blending phase. And you might experiment with pressure sensitive opacity one day. I used fix opacity brushes for years but now I change. You will walk your own path regarding brush settings, the main thing you doesn't use soft brushes and other unhealthy tools beginners tend to
    I talk too much, sorry.

    Maybe you should render in grayscale sometimes. I know the feeling when you need colors to make your life nicer but if you need to think about skin coloring (a quite hard topic), it might goes into your way. If you just focus on values, things are easier.

    graaaaahh,
    im pissed at the world right now, im doubting myself so much in art and life

    and very ashemed vor the lack of continuity in this stckechbook.

    Conniekat8 - thanks man, even tho i dont think they capture a lot.

    shiNIN - thanks man, ill try to keep that in mind, but about the soft brushes, sometimes i like to keep them hard-edged because of the texture and style, but i know nothing about art so....

    Hey Aragah, Thanks for visiting my sketch book.

    You really really should not be discouraged. you're doing damn well for being 17. Anyway, concerning color, I'd say nothing would help more than painting from life. you've done a few already and they look great. photo reference would be a good alternative though.

    I would suggest doing daily speed paintings along with your anatomy studies. Keep them short, 30min - 1hr. (stay away from character costume design for now, If you can draw the human figure well, you can draw anything) for speed paintings I would paint from life and photo. Also, studying from the masters would be a great way to learn color. Masters like Sargent, Gerome and Velazquez would be good places to start. and 2 modern artists come to mind for light and color: Craig Mullins, and Nathan Fowkes. I highly encourage you to check them out.

    Try to paint small. Keep the canvas no larger than half your screen size when you paint. it will keep you from worrying about details

    and most importantly I'd stress 2 things:
    1) Mileage - Paint and draw every single day. Who cares about a bad drawing or painting today when you know you'll learn from it and improve tomorrow?

    2) Draw and paint from life! - If possible, grab and easel, some paint and brushes and paint outside. Find local life drawing sessions. Nothing beats a live model for learning how to draw the human figure, or drawing in general.

    Good luck I really hope you don't let discouragement get the best of you. You're at a great spot already and you can only go up!

    Hello!

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook. I see you've got some fine work in the cooking here. Be more confident! You're doing all the right things. Just keep your mind on things to make sure you're improving. Ask yourself a lot of questions and try to answer them. Where is the form turning to? How wide is the arm here and here? What causes the contours to look like this, underlying muscle, bone, a dip? What color is the light and what happens when it hits an object of this colour?

    Stay sharp! Practice right, and every moment you do, will yield good results!

    I'm the same. But I really do crap (or nothing at all, it's hard to start drawing again to me), not just being too self-critical... Seriously, you are worse than me. It's worrying to see a more brutal self critic than mine.

    I liked your sketchbook pages. The digital stuff in the same update has a nice feel but an obvious anatomy flaw as well. You have some body drawing skills, don't do such trivial proportion problems, they are easy to learn. Wrists are around crotch level when arms are along the torso.

    Hi man , you got awesome sketches here , anyway you should'nt care about how slowly u draw ( Slow is Faster )
    slow down , and try to analyse what you drawing
    ( Don't Copy the model , but analyse it - Vilppu )

    and i see you got some mistakes in your drawings , so try to draw slowly and meausre by you eye ( everybody makes mistakes )

    wassim


    Change is such hard work

    Heya! Great start on your sketchbook, those muscle studies are fantastic. Your figures look really anatomically solid, but there's some tiny proportional problems. I think perhaps you make the legs and feet too small.

    But, overall, I'm really impressed! You're doing much better than I was at seventeen.

    Also congratulations on that scholarship!
