Nichsweet's Sketchbook (noobity at it's finest!)
Hello there! Welcome to my sketchbook. I wanted to start a sketchbook so i could get help from people out there and it would also get me into a habit of sketching regularly. I need to get into a habit of sketching so I can improve my drawing and painting before I graduate HS. I will take all the comments I can get. Don't hold back on criticism please. Most of the images from the first 3 or 4 posts are from a year back or 3 months but I will try to keep it so the later posts are the newer sketches. Thanks for your help and advice!
PS. I will get better pictures in the future... sorry

Great studies so far! I remember doing a pepper and other stuff for one of my early drawing classes. The salt shaker reminds me of an exercise we did where we had to draw the reflections in chrome, like on the spout for the sink. It was difficult and I don't care for my picture (which I still have somewhere), but the exercise was a good one.
Post more so we can get a better feel for your style!

I love the tree sketch the most out of the group. I would suggest going across the whole form with some of your cross-hatching (lightly), and erase or build up areas, so your transitions (curves, etc..) read better, they're a little abrupt.
just a suggestion though
keep it up, and i hope to see more from you, reminds me i need to do more pen work.
stop by my book sometime

Thank you everyone for your comments! They make me happy
Here's some more old sketches that I want to get up before I show the recent stuff.
OKAY HUGE EDIT HERE. SO this sketchbook has been totally messed up so right now I'm just gonna post most of the stuff I had up here without any sort of subtitle because its boring and I don't think anyone who sees this cares... :/ SO Here we go AGAIN

One more old sketch update, and then some RECENT STUFF!!WOO! Since I don't have much more I'm gonna put in some finished stuff from school later on...
1-3) FIRST figure drawing session ever! I went after school and it was really awkward and I left early :/ but i still learned a lot and I plan to go back eventually. RECENT Stuff now! 4)I started to look at different concept artists and their style and then just figure drawing in general and I practiced in notebooks during school so i got a lil better! 5)more figure stuff 6)I went crazy and drew a fun page with a FISH ! But this showed me that I need to develop a definite style.

Another update! These drawings are all from the past week and I've basically looked at life and then from imagination. I'm super happy with how they turned out, but I should probably start doing full drawings, ah well. In due time.
I realized everything drawn doesn't need a description... its pretty self explanatory haha (plus I'm lazy and I don't think people care lol)

@Namae- Thank you I'm gonna try to do more pen illustrations in the future, they tend to be very dramatic.
One update for today, I tried to blend painting abstractly with pencil illustrations. The little story behind this piece is that I had an art assignment that I didn't complete so I drew my friend during lunch and threw it on a crazy background I painted in acrylic done in 2 minutes what do you think?

Okay so i let up now for a month on this whole sketching thing. But I have to get back to it. I get really frustrated when things don't turn out how I like and I just stop but I'm gonna try to get past it. So let me present the next huge post of random, crappy sketches and studies!
Here I finally figured that I should start looking up Posemaniacs, and Bridgman's anatomy, and I found a few things online and they really really help, especially with the help of other sketchbooks on here. When I got bored of that I decided to go crazy and sketch whatever, and I'm not going to be afraid of posting the the crappiest and most random drawings that I do. I can feel the progress at my fingertips .
At the end here is the start of a painting done a while back that I never finished but hopefully will grow the balls to complete. Its supposed to be a realistically rendered person experiencing fear of a past that is experimentally painted. Hopefully that makes sense.

I have not been updating this stuff in forever because I have been busy with sports and my AP Art portfolio complete with 24 pieces (2 of which are in this post and more are yet to come). Also, I have one more day left of high school, and then I'm done! I can honestly say that I just got scared s***less, while I was typing this message. To think that four years ago I never even dreamed to be where I am now, in every aspect of my life !!!! But in other news, I have improved so much over the past few months with my periodic inactivity. I'm thinking about taking an art class at the community college over the summer before going into my double major next year. So hopefully I can make it easy on myself! .
SO onto the pictures, heres just a small post of the select few presentable sketches (some of which I copied from other people) since my last post, and then two paintings from my concentration (one that you saw me working on earlier) . I even added a picture of a doodle I was doing in physics class haha.

These are two paintings I did during Highschool
