    Martut's Pages of Sketching

    Hi, I'm Martut, I'm 18, American,, and I'm terribly afraid to be doing this. All of the amazing art in here is really intimidating, you have no idea... or maybe you do. Either way, I'm scared to do this. I feel like I should be posting like... 50 images so that you can all see all of my work, but alas, I lost my sketchbook. I can't find it anywhere.

    I had tons of stuff in there with figure drawing, cloth studies, the studies of different parts of faces and junk. A foot our teacher had us draw that she was very proud of me for, and a drawing of a girl's face that people liked.

    Like I said, it's all missing.

    So, I'm going to give you guys a few pictures that I sketched on my tablet. Nothing special, but... yeah. I'd really like criticism and tips as well, I've improved on my own criticism for a long long time and I'd really like some outside criticism now... Be harsh, I can take it! (I promise!)

    I only have these, for now, but I promise to upload more!

    Nice start so far. Those eye studies are definitely my fave out of the batch.

    My only crit is I think you need to work on bodies, the man in the first post has strange shoulders. If you're anything like me, I bet you find it much easier to focus on faces, but it's good to get out of your comfort zone and start practicing the figure.

    So, hope to see some more pictures too, bonus points if I see a full bodied figure amongst them.

    I took your advice, psychically, obviously. Because I did this before I went to my graduation ceremony!

    This is my first time working with values with bodies and stuff. Also, I changed the model's face to look more surprised and... well, different. I know the head's a bit off angle or w/e, but I started without the head and decided to add it in later so it's a bit... wonky. The original pic is... here.

    Does this make it NSFW?

    (I'll do a full body one some time. Just for you!)

    Okay, did more for you 'cause I really want to improve on bodies. Thank you so much, I'm gonna keep working on them.

    All of the reference images are from DA.

    I decided to work with values on faces a bit... I still can't hope to use colors when painting for the life of me (I'd really like some advice on that! I mainly worked with pencils for the past 7 years!). The guy's a picture of a person I found on DA.

    Great start! I know that feeling of being afraid but it's absolutely vital that you put your work out in the open and cherish the feedback, no matter how hard it may be at times. If you feel like you need encouragement, I strongly recommend reading The War of Art, it helped me tons to overcome my fears of doing art, let alone publishing it (which I am in the process since my SB hasn't shown up yet ).

    Ah, that was quick!

    I'm really liking the torsos, I have to admit they're better than what I expected. Glad you're using reffs too.

    Also, that last portrait is looking good so far, it'd be nice to see finished up.

    Ah, no crits from me this time. You're going in a good direction, just keep it up really.

    Thanks! I checked out your sketchbook, too, left a post. I'm mostly self-motivated to do art, but I'll be sure to check out those books if I ever get into a slump. Thank you!

    Aw, thanks!

    I'll try to finish up that portrait some time soon. But, right now I want to try to paint using colors instead of shades only... This is gonna be scary.

    What I'm gonna try to do is use certain images for references for 2 reasons.

    1. I'm going to use them so I can know what color to choose.
    2. If they're images I love it'll make me do even better!

    P.S. Your artwork? Awesome!

    I drew this from reference, with some obvious big changes/additions.

    I feel like reviving this old thing. Criticism would be great!

    Here's the reference I used for the Jake Gyllenhaal Photostudy, the torsos are also from observation and the rest is imagination.

    I've noticed that the girl's neck is too long, and since I've done that I've done tons of studying on bones and muscles, and general anatomy.

    Thank you so much for clicking!
