    Yinari's (Beginners) Sketchbook

    Hello everyone!
    So this is my beginners sketchbook. As you will soon see I still have a very long way to go. However, I hope to be able to improve as much as possible with your help.

    Please don't hesitate to comment or post critique on my drawings The more critique the better.

    Thank you for watching!

    (Edit: I moved the first post down, so I could write a better introduction here.)

    So in an attempt to learn to draw better, I recently picked up 'Drawing on the right side of the brain'. I'm especially having problems with drawing the right anatomy, so I hope that with this book I will get better at that.

    Anyway, this is my 'Pre-instruction drawing #1: Your "Self-Portrait"'. Unfortunately my scanner messed things up a bit.

    So this is my try at the 'Pre-instruction drawing #2: A person, drawn from memory'. I tried to draw my mom, though with different hair it might as well have been my dad lol, in the drawing she looks more like a man than a woman XD.

    Heres my "Pre-instruction drawing #3: Your hand", I left out the shading this time, cos my scanner would just mess it up anyway hehe.

    Hey, sweet start. Great book you have there. When youre feeling its time for more i recommend: George B. Bridgman, Vilppu, John H. Vanderpoel,Andrew Loomis. Just to name a few.

    hey, I see you joined our study group so welcome there.
    You have some problems with anatomy but I have that too but if you work on it you will improve fast.

    This is a link to loomis books in pdf file: http://alexhays.com/loomis/
    I still study them and its a great help to improve. I hope you will enjoy it too while studying it.

    Cool you are still here and you`re doing anatomy, awesome. And as for emotions, these should wait till you study head anatomy, muscles and such.

    Now you have one day to double the pages Just keep the momentum going.

    Take care.

    Hey, look for the shapes when drawing just about anything, to break flatness you`re dealing right now.
    Altho not the best preview its should help you understand.
    I will remove it from your SB after you`ve seen it.
