    I bring you mien scribbles!!!

    It's been some time and I did not update last week, fortunately I update today.here are things from ether the imagination or observation with some shame....oh yeah I decided to finally try to attempt an interior(need critique). Also the last two sketches were something meant for a competition that I had given up on even though now I get the feeling that I should just "Throw my hat into the ring".

    Looking good, I can already see a little improvement from your first post to the latest. It's good to see that you're tackling busy compositions this early into your work; keep up the observational drawings.

    If you haven't already taken a look at it, I'd suggest picking up a copy of Betty Edward's "The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain." I sling this book around here a lot, but I can't speak highly enough about it's ability to take beginners to another level. It also gives a great list of exercises and how to do them (contour drawings, negative space, etc.).

    A lot of your drawings and lines are looking rather skewed, I'm not sure if that's just because of how the pictures were taken or if you're drawing them that way, but keep an eye out for that (and use a mirror to help you see). Make sure that your right angles are actually right angles and not leaning one way or another.

    Keep up the work, looking forward to seeing you grow.

    The last set of figure drawings are really nice.
    Try to maintain a simular level of subtlety with your digital work.

    Keep posting.

    Well I'm late for the upload, but better late than never! The sketchs of animals was done at The Natural History Mueseum...
    don't know what else to say other than me playing with the way things are scanned than edited in photoshop.

    There is a big difference in level between some of your figure studies. I think some were done after bridgman, as i recognise some of his sketches. So it makes me point out the fact that you must not forget to understand what you are drawing and why. Don't just copy the lines, but understand as well. Try drawing a pose several times, the same pose from different angles, construct with cubes and spheres, etc.

    And most importantly keep posting, progress is just a matter of time

    Hello mate!
    You´re doing well! For anatomy try Loomis´ books and Brigdman´s either! It will help you a lot with shapes and anatomy in general! I´ve been using these books and made a great progress so far. After all, anatomy is 3D shapes! If you master that, everything is going being fine.
    Don´t be in a hurry to study digital painting. It´s great, I know, but focus on traditional skills first: perspective, values, shapes, etc. After you master that, you can use any media without problems!
    Keep it up!
