Hello, I finally decided to start sketchbook thread. I'm 24years old female. Like many others I started drawing at early age, but had a lot of breaks.
This sketchbook might be quite boring, cause I'm trying concentrate on studies and won't be uploading any of my doodles. But I hope I'll get some feedback and I won't loose motivation on the way :>
I'll start with showing my "50 Boxes Challenge" which I did from imagination after seeing Scott Robertson dvd about shading. You can see a little improvement. This challenge took me about 1week.

The second challenge I started "1000 Hands Challenge". It's currently in progress.

thanks, I use photo references. I find it difficult to draw with one hand, cause I use my left hand to hold a board on which I draw.
As someone who struggles with hands, I appreciate your hand studies, but I also like your shading studies. I'd like to see you apply the skills you gain from your studies in a more artistic drawing (by that I mean drawings that aren't studies).
Everything is better with dinosaurs.
Your studies are amazing and inspiring! Hands look very very nice! Waiting for more!
Brandon I've always avoided drawing hands as much as possible, so that's why I started doing this challenge to prove myself I can learn to draw hands from imagination (I hope I will :>). I have ideas, but usually I draw them "stickman style" with some notes so I won't forget, but nothing more developed as I can't draw as I imagine.
Seili I know what you mean, cause I spend lots of time in other people sketchbooks ;> Don't know if I should show my old doodles...
Ulver I'll try to update as much as possible, I draw everyday, but usually scan once a week.
For those who are interested in doodles (these are quite old, but haven't doodled recently)

Hey, I have three words for you.. A-MA-ZING! ()
Very nice style, love your characters, and your buildings, I even like the studies on your first page, with the 3d boxes.., they inspired me to try my hand at them..., didn't quite do as well as you, but I'll get there
Keep posting, this looks great!
My sketchbook - help me get better!
Nice! Great characters! I'm very impressed with your architectural sketches - strong skills! Cheerz)
I love your style. the building drawings are amazing
Amazing studies. The values are mind blowing, I can never achieve them. It must be annoying to put your hand in those 1000 positions for some time. I can only wish to be as good as you.

I don't wonder what you are

I know that you are hydrogen - Ian D.
Bunny Dragon thank you
Vay Thanks. I use photo references I found all over the internet :> It would be hard to find 1000 different poses, so I think later on some might duplicate or I'll take some photos myself (that's a better idea >:>). Anyways, as my bf says "You can achieve anything if you want, if you can't it means you didn't want it badly enough".
"I can only wish to be as good as you"
that's what i think when i see artist like Seung Eun Kim [URL="http://kse332.deviantart.com[/URL] or others who draw better than me and even if you learn to draw like them you still won't be satisfied (cause nobody can seek perfection). Do your best and keep thinking positive You'll get better as long as you practice.
how long did it take for you to draw like that.
I LOVE YOUR LINE WORK!
Really fantastic studies! I ought to try that 1000 hands challenge. You're so good at them already you'll be a master when you're done!
"This is a paint and pixel-splattered furnace that forges the swords of artistic mastery. This is a place where swarthy and belligerent dwarves drink turpentine mead, berate their apprentices and slap the trade into their skulls. It's where the anvils are made of graphite, the hammers are as true as rectangular marquee selections and the fires burn with the light of a thousand lensflares." --Jason Rainville
when you draw you get stuck in. Some scary pics there you drew. I would guess them. Sorry drunk do not know if the above made sense. Great work.
Wonderful hands! I also like the boxes. You might find helpful reference photographs for upcoming geometrical drawings/studies in my sketchbook (see page 10). I shot many photographs of cubes, cylinders and pyramids today and will upload them step by step. I wish my hand drawings would have more of your constructive style. Keep on posting studies, please!
u grounded yourself with the fundamentals and its showing throughout your sketches
dont leave the colour studies til last tho theyr hella fun
moar scanz pl0x
Those cube and hand studies are great! Awesome work! You inspire me!

Superb! The shading on those boxes really stands out! I'm also impressed by how intricate that last drawing is, I can never do patterns like that. Very, very good stuff so far!
My only constructive criticism would be to be pay more attention to proportions when you draw without reference, especially head size. Sorry that I'm not qualified to give better advice, but I hope that it helps some!
Whoa, I love your hand and architectural studies. I really should practise hands throughoutly like you do. But wow "1000 hands challenge" sounds tough! Lovely character sketches as well (but it would be nice to see some males and varying body types among them too)!
The values on the boxes are crazy to me 8) I wish I could draw figures like this. All the other stuff of yours looks super nice. I'm interested in seeing more painting from you, this could be really great.
Your studies rock, they look great. Did you use any particular method to learn how to construct the hands/legs? Keep up the good work, they rock.
