    Miri's Sketchbook - Pursuit of Radness

    ...because one day I want to have rad drawing skills.

    I love comments and feedback, and any observations and advice that will help me in my Pursuit of Radness will be loved, cherished, and pored over so I can make better works.

    Thank you guys!

    Your lines in your figures are getting more confident with each post! Not to much to critique at the moment, but maybe work on some value studies/shading/hatching? Looks fine actually, on those faces, but they are pretty small. Oh, and facial structure, I'd work on that a little, some of the features are a little wonky. (good word usage?)

    Kinda generic critique, sorry, but I look forward to seeing more!!
    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    @ Dope Fiend: Thanks so much! From those yellow-paged gestures, I got some feedback about not being so scratchy, and working in long, loose lines - it really helped me!

    I definitely need to get some value studies in there, and some colour studies; thanks for reiterating that! Definitely gonna get on it

    And hahaha, yes wonky is a technical term...

    Thank you, man!

    Self portrait from life - about 2 hours.

    Did this about a month ago, and I thought the nose looked fine. Now it looks funny. Hah.

    This is awesome work. How long have you been drawing for?

    I agree with everyone that it's hard to critique this level of work, maybe add some still life study, perspective and color...

    Just for my curiosity, are these drawing from life or based on photos?

    Yo i'm loving your observational skecthes, there just awesome. I don't know what advice that I can give you but just keep sketching away and use a lot of dynamic drawing books aswell if you know people like George Bridgman and Burne Hogarth. Wil definitely love to see more of you

    @ Dracken: Thanks, man! I still feel like my figures need so much work lololol. I definitely need to kick it into high-gear with colour and still lives. Once my commissions are done, haha... I've been drawing with the intention of becoming a professional for about 6 years now? I've always drawn though Most of these are based on photos, as I am still looking for a local lifedrawing class.

    @ Silent-Samurai: Thanks! Been working at those a bunch. Thanks for the names - I'm not familiar (shameful, I'm sure), but I'll look 'em up. I appreciate the comments and support
