    lazymember doesn't want to be lazy anymore

    Well I finally decided I'm going to start a sketchbook with the hope that I'll improve, as well as draw more. I'm a graphic design major, though I much rather mainly just draw cartoons and the like. I'd much appreciate any help and advice offered.

    Update: Edited to have a better picture show up first. I deleted my first post images, but I think my sketchbook still displays my progress well enough. Plus it was old college stuff.

    Some practice poses from posemaniacs,. That's about all I managed for now. I need a better understanding of some things, so I just need to keep practicing and study up.

    Robot thumbnail designs for a deviantart group I joined. Was suppose to create an original giant robot, but I don't really draw mechs too often. I'll try to get beefier updates rather than just uploading one thing every other day.

    Good start The figure studies look great. The only thing I'd say is work on line quality. Try and think of the start and end of the line. Like a journey. Once you can get your line quality up drawing is soo much easier and quicker (in my opinion

    Well I sketched more from posemaniacs, while trying to make better line quality as suggested from Tides. It was nerve wrecking for me because I'm so unsure of the thing I'm drawing. Main reason why everything I draw looks so sketchy. I have a strong tendency to go over a line again and again, until I pretty much destroy my paper.

    I tried drawing hands, and I knew I wasn't very good with those already. Well found out how bad I'm really at it. BBBBAAAAADDD. I drew deer as well from references.

    Well I got a lot of reading material that will hopefully stuff knowledge into my head to get a better understanding of all this.

    Oh wow! That line is much better already. It'll come, as you get better you'll notice that you'll start drawing with your whole arm instead of just your wrist.

    Hands are crazy hard. One day I'll tackle them.

    Good work The deer are very lovely.

    Thanks. I've tried, and I'll just keep trying. I'm just going to juggle reading up on things I don't have a firm grasp on yet and hands on exercises.

    More poses and hands. Working on a portrait sketch in pencil. Scanner is against me, so everything was scanned wrong.

    Still working on the portrait from reference, and that's what I have so far. Having quite a hard time with it and getting all the values. I'm going to spend one more day on it.

    I realized that I haven't drawn anything I've enjoyed or at all to my interests, so I drew the pyro as a girl. It was fun to draw something that wasn't a study of any sort. I'm still trekking.

    Well I decided I'm done with the portrait, and it looks terrible. For some reason I thought it would a good idea to smudge the graphite. Well it looks bad. I'm not going to continue working on it anymore and just continue on.

    I've come across the 100 things challenge/project/whatever and I plan to do that for the time being. I'll be taking a week to complete each 100 set of poses/feet/hands/etc.

    This was the photo I was referencing from.

    See if you can get some drawing pencils of varying hardness. It doesn't look like you're getting the contrast needed for shading. Maybe even charcoal. Then you'll be able to get a larger set of value and more tones to work with.

    I did 100 poses which was more troubling for me than I thought. Glad I managed to finish it in a week and that I'm done with it. I need better time management because just getting this done, doesn't feel like I accomplished enough. Large pic is large.

    I haven't posted in awhile. I attempted at shading and that's the result. I took a picture of the mannequin to compare with the sketch (sorry for poor phone camera quality).
