    Second attempt at jump starting myself

    I'm a 20 year old art student, currently on my gap year before heading to uni in september

    I started a sketchbook here about a year ago~ At the time I was on a foundation degree and I was lost as to where I was heading. But now after a year of deciding I'd study illustration, and then randomly going back on myself and applying for a brand new Drawing honours degree at Falmouth, I'm here again.

    Free from being assessed, I can get back to learning (hopefully!)

    First off, some digital still lifes, trying to train my eye to colours~

    Bit more, random scribble from my head followed by two reffed ones... She's so-so, but I've always stuck to greyscale when doing portraits... thus it's my first real attempt at any skintones D:

    Realised that I desperately need to practice lips and jawlines, and skintones for that matter!

    whoa that's a very good start !
    I would just add that, like the others, I want to see some rough sketches from you !

    (And the apple is IMO the best of the 3 studies ^_^)

    Ehehe, alright! I'll post something a little 'rougher'! Though I don't typically do very much... Idk, I seem to be affraid of messing up. Something I desperately need escape from!

    Thankyou for the support already~ And Shad, I must agree, I prefer the apple too, quite pleased with the textures :3

    So here we go... lips studies, most from ref, and several from my head. I'm starting to get an idea of the form atleast. Some random scibbly people, most of them from imagination(, and some better than others!). And finally a quick sketch of a glass candle holder~

    Got around to giving him a pair of hands! ;D

    Crown~ Thankyou, hoped to make a good impression! I'll keep trying to post daily

    Alrighty, todays studies! Necks. Did some Bridgeman necks beforehand and went onto Vanderpoel. Getting to grips with the anatomy a bit better... I don't feel I learn much from Bridgeman studies, until I work on form and can have a sense of the underlying structures. I'll get on with doing more peoples from imagination now.

    And secondly~ A charcoal and chalk study I've been doing of little metalic pharaoh bust. He's made of a weird material, almost like dull pewter. Its my first reall attempt at using the two properly together, and as such, I did this on mount board. Not the toothiest of materials to be working on! Ohwell, ordered myself some proper pastel paper now.

    He's about... 70x50cm

    You have a great sens of lightning. For the portrait above from your head, the colors seems good but maybe the light is too present everywhere. That's just my opinion. Really love your studies, pharao, lips charcoals by the way..

    Kiwee: I must agree. Putting it into greyscale shows just how much it is (even though it's fairly obvious without altering!)

    And Rhubix~ I've never really done any fanart before, but hell... heimerdinger is just too unique not to draw! Yellow afroed cat, I mean really.

    As for today, I've been scribbing people into my sketchbook, but I'll fill the pages up before scanning them! Also went back over some of the environment studies I've done recently... going to continue on with them. I need to refine my use of brushes though. Some of them took longer than others, and its generally those which dont work so well. Perhaps that says something~

    And finally, some thumbs, did several more, but I quite liked these three... I dont do any character design or clothing, so it was a nice breather! Shamelessly borrowed the format from Reedux's sketchbook~
