    Shad's CRAZY weeks : 2/15 week 2 = FAIL

    Hi guys ! I'm Shad, 17 years old, drawing since I can hold a pencil !
    I wasted years and years drawing crappy dbz-like stuff, but I now want to improve, so I'll try my best !
    Also, I'm french, so I apologize about my bad english...

    Here we go ! I'll try to keep this thread as daily as I can, I guess it's a great source of motivation !

    Some random scraps and studies I did in the past three weeks ( didn't had much time for drawing so there are only a few )
    And at the end, studies from Kchen I did today

    thanks for replying my sketchbook, and about yours, well you made a good start .
    Good shading and you got some understanding from anatomy, only the left part of the chest is a bit off I think but anyway you did a good work. Keep it up.

    shading in the last one was done nice,, you rly made the darks 'dark' and the lights 'light'
    Just proportion wise its quite off..
    But that can be fixed with a little more studying

    If you have or have not heard of it,, Loomis figure drawing book is awsome for learning the proportions!
    The DL link can be found here on CA or google

    Good luck!

    deadlyhamster > thanks for stopping by ! Yeah I totally messed the torso of the last, I'll have to fix this for next ones ^^

    RBeek > I try to draw thinking "push values, do not shade with only one pencil" because I really have difficulties for shading ^^
    I plan to do a ton of studies next weeks, but for now I'm working on the book I do to try an art school
    I have heard of Loomis books ages ago but never really took the time to read em with attention. Yesterday I downloaded the complete collection at "save loomis" and I will sure work with them !
    Thanks =)

    Here is a little tiger I did this morning. It's photo based but not strict study... And I totally screwed up the black parts ><
    (But I'm still in love with pentel pen ! )
    Also I'll work alot tonight and tomorrow, so prepare for a massive update =)

    I hope you keep up with the goodwork too .

    That tiger piece is an awesome illustration . You can also definitely tell you're improving with all of your shapes as well. I also like the shading in the second to last one, I have such difficulty with it x_x.

    Can't wait to see more from you .

    Hey Butterknife thanks for alot the kind words, really motivates me !

    Well the "massive update" I wanted to do didn't turned out very well as I'm feeling weird today, so I just drew 4 quicks sketches. Those are a girl from characterdesigns.com, and Leonard, Sheldon and Raj ( OMG I just killed him in that picture ) from The Big Bang Theory (which is absolutely awesome by the way).
    Plus I think the shading on those are way too light, just used a HB pencil today :/
    I hope I'll be much more motivated tomorrow, I need to finish my book (that means about 10 papers) for next Thursday. I don't understand why I took so much pleasure drawing yesterday and did it without even wanting to today ><

    Your tiger is awesome and you didn't screw up the black parts imo. And the last post is a good drawing too but only one crit, the head of the woman is too small so watch out with that (I have problems with that too).
    And about your lack of motivation to draw today, well I think everybody has some days they really don't want to draw but the important thing is that you draw anyway. Because you need to hold your rhythm to draw each day.
    But your drawing good and I will wait for your next work.

    Thanks for replying again !
    Well I think when I get thetime I'll try some tigers again, I just love drawing them !
    And about motivation it oftens happens to me but while I'm through it I am kind of scared and desapointed of myself xD
    Anyway yesterday and today are two "full of motivation" days, so here's a little more about what I'm doing for my book... I'm definitely late for it ><

    Can't wait until friday to finally be free about what to work on, want to do some serious anatomy studies !
    And watercolour ! And practice pentel pencil ! And ! And !
    Comments and critics are more than welcome

    Great updates! You're moving right along. Don't get too heavy on your lines! Work your way down in value, I notice a couple of lines look particularly dark. Try using a lighter pencil first to get down your basic values, and then darken gradually.
    I think now might be a good time to practice your observation skills. What I mean is, use your pencil to measure and mark the places where things meet, how much negative space they're taking up, and body parts in relative place to one another. I know sometimes I get caught up in just drawing it, and then when I look back and something is off... its because i didn't take the time to measure.
    Keep it up! Artist power!

    Hey Arenyth thanks for stopping by my SB
    For values, I tried to proceed like you said, in the drawings below !
    But, I do not know anything about "negative space", what is this ? The "2D space" a figure takes in the paper ?
    And, what do you mean by "body parts in relative place to one another" ? I read Loomis figure's drawing yesterday ( at least, I read a good half of it ) , do you mean being carefull to the weight repartition in function of the position of members ? Or somethign else ?
    Sorry for all those questions ^^'
    Also, I'm planning on doing loooots of sketching from life observation as soon as I'll be finished with my book ( so I'll begin next Friday )

    Here are the things I did tonight !

    The values look better already!
    Negative space is the white space around your figure or object. It's just as important as the figure you are drawing. You should teach yourself to look at your picture inversely, seeing a black mass of figure in white space. Next time you draw from reference, pay attention to how big the space is between the arm and the waist (in your #10 post with the last figures has a lot of good examples) Is the triangle between the bent arm and his body correct? Is it too big or too small? This will help you with your proportions as well, though I think they're pretty good this will only strengthen you.
    Body parts in relative space: What I mean is something like this. Take your pencil and hold it up to your reference. Say from the shoulder to the elbow takes up about an inch. Use your thumb to measure on the pencil, and then take that pencil and place it on other parts of the body. Which parts are the same size? The other arm should be the same, perhaps it's also the same distance from the top of the head to the bottom of the neck. or the length of the foot is the same length as the shin (for example). If you can remember to do this, you can check your work for errors constantly and improve your drawing as you go.
    I hope this makes sense, I'm trying to find a website with the information but I can't seem to...
