    Smile A night in my neighborhood

    Nighttime scene of my neighborhood last night. Was too cold so I only took a glance of the neighborhood for 5-10 seconds then went inside and did it by memory. Just finished shading it today, sent to my college representative I am dedicating this picture to my friend Laura, who if it wasn't for her I would still have a very loose understanding of perspective. She is my mentor and Art teacher, Thank you love! ♥ ^_^

    Any tips/advice any of you can give for future references? (Yes the lines aren't straight, wasn't really being delicate when I quickly sketched out bits of it.)

    Oh, and the sketch paper is bigger than my scanner, hence the weird edges (couldn't fit all of it on there!) tried my best to get the best parts of it.

    But you still do have a very loose understanding of perspective, at least according to this image. And this image lacks in pretty much everything, to the point it's very hard to critique it (at least in a way that's not done more effectively in the books I'm going to link), so I'd suggest that you download and read all the Loomis books: http://alexhays.com/loomis/ as well as give a good heartfelt read to "Perspective for Comic Book Artists!" http://www.scribd.com/doc/29299861/D...c-Book-Artists

    Not gonna lie It's still a bit loose, but I did multiple VP's I am proud of in the picture, and I'll look into the Andrew Loomis book ^^; gotta get ready for animation college anyway. How is it hard to critique by the way? there are many suggestions that could be proposed, like was my lighting and darkening in the right places? that's an example.

    No, sorry. It's bad. The only thing that's actually in perspective is the tiny one vanishing point road in the right side of the image, and nothing else in the image relates to that vanishing point. It's bad.

    As for the critique, sure, I could come up with some, but overall it wouldn't help. You clearly have no proper understanding of the basics and foundations of drawing, so it's likely it would go over your head or like I said, anything I could say has already been said better in the books I linked (as you probably noticed with the perspective book) and any amount of critique wouldn't make your picture any better. You'd have to redraw it completely, preferably after you've read the books.

    EDIT:Also if someone else isn't seeing the pic (hosted by Blogspot), and the attachment thing is made of butts and doesn't seem to know whether to be visible or not, just in case here it is Photobucketed:
