    goodmanje's sketchbook of shame

    Decided to start posting my sketchbook stuff here for feedback. I've been drawing for less than a year now. It's been a slow start trying to digest all the information I've found online and in books.

    I'm going to post the good and the bad.....

    For that last one, I think the only real issue is everything is equally dark for the most part (at least on my screen) there's a little tiny tiny light scattered here and there but my eye wasn't drawn to it. There's no real focal point to rest the eye on it seems. Also composition wise the eye gets directed off the page.


    Read your other thread on frustration working from imagination. I'd suggest just popping in some music, then loosely drawing whatever you can. For me I often start with a face or figure because thats what I have the most practice in. Then just see if you can work up from that. Drawing from imagination is just a fun, free expression personally I enjoy just seeing what it becomes. Don't get too worked up about getting a masterpiece out right away lol. Some will be crap, but as you go along you'll come across some where you'll step back and think.... Hmm..... not bad.

    Hey man - yeah, saw the bugs and rock sketch - good start. Portraits are off to a decent start too. Just keep at it...that's the only real advice I can offer. You'll find your own path depending on who you like and what your goals are. Is there a junior college in your area where you could take some basic drawing classes? Might also look into a local art center or community art league. Good luck!

    I'd suggest looking up Nathan Fowkes for great illustrations showing the structure of the head. He has a blog online.
