    Guardian G.I.'s Sketchbook

    Hello everyone.
    My name is Alex, I live in Belarus.
    I have been drawing since April 2011.
    After reading this topic, I've finally got some courage to start a sketchbook here and post my somewhat crappy doodles.
    Any critique or advice, or just a comment will be greatly appreciated.

    NOTE: Unless you really want to look through pages of old bad sketches and my whining, skip to the last page. What the hell was I thinking back then?

    Good start ^.^ i would suggest learning abit of anatomy for the hands, like the skeleton and stuff, so you understand it better and you should put some more effort on the shadings or dont do it at all, cause it looks a little mediocre when you just loosely filling in the lines just for the hell of it. keep it up.

    Tanks are one of the most frequent things I usually draw (besides anatomy related stuff).

    Here's a few sketches. First one is drawn from observation (the shading is quite crappy, I shall put more effort into it next time), the second one is from my imagination.

    Messing around with Scott Robertson's shape-building techniques.

    You're doing great with those Scott Robertson studies!
    Perhaps try varying the stroke strength to give it more depth and more styled up look.
    And about your observation studies, try constructing with those as well. Like with the barrel, start with your cube and spheres, and try staying as faithful to those as possible.
    You'll get the hang of them if you keep practising, so don't stop

    @ BlackDelphin: Thanks for the kind words and all the advice!
    Concerning the varied stroke strength, once I get rid of the lack of confidence in my lines, I'll try something with it, that's for sure.

    Here's some Burne Hogarth studies.

    Also, I'd like to post things more regularly, but that stupid procrastination severely hinders my drawing efforts.

    I've finally managed to overcome my fear, get outdoors and draw something.
    Here's the results.
