    Long road, oh well.

    I've been drawing for quite a while, but I didn't take it seriously. So, I usually just throw away many of my sketching.

    You're maybe wondering the x's at the bottom of the first image. Can't help it. I got a degree in electronic engineering and discovering pattern is essential in mathematics.

    The one done in sketchbook is, well, just for playing around.
    The photos are all from 4chan. Don't know if that's important.

    I have to ask though, is it really essential to keep your sketches?
    And I wonder if it's okay to use A4 printer papers instead of 'real sketchbook'. I admit the real one feels much better but I can get A4 papers for free from my lab, hence, save money.

    hey .
    u shud keep all your drawings (or most of them) because one day you will be excited to see how far you have come....and looking back at all your drawings/sketchbooks will be worth it. it will reinforce all the effort you go through over the years....i recomend using a sketchbook so u don't lose individual pages.
    Great start, your proportions are pretty good =D. I guess you need to pump out a fair few drawings so the ca. members can help you out with crits, goodluck!

    doesn't matter what you draw on, just do it. I like those studies on the first page, be sure to also slow down and do more accurate ones; focus on the angles of what you're drawing.

    To be honest, I thought I was gonna get lashed for my previous sketches.

    @FourTonMantis
    Will do.

    Sure is tough to draw in a hectic schedule.

    Still, I made it a rule to draw at least one page per day. That doesn't include the 30 second figure drawing. Don't upload those mainly because they are horrendous.

    Did I mentioned I work from 9am-8pm?

    I didn't really focus on ears in the past. So yeah, kind of bad at those. But enough with portraits, I think I want to draw something else tonight.

    The graphic tablet arrived like 5 days ago. Very hard to find one of these in my area. A very modest tablet but get the job done, I think.

    It turns out to be much harder to use than I thought. Spent like a whole day just to get used to the stylus.

    Can't scan anything from physical sketchbook because my lab is closed for one whole week. Doesn't matter much really, since I'm trying to use more of this amazing technology.

    Fooling around with colour.

    I never really liked doing colours in traditional medium mainly because they are messy. And I hate mess. Never done any colours for... years, I think.

    With digital medium, I can work many kind of things. It makes me wonder why I never went digital before. Though some details are lost when we work in digital. But, meh, I don't think it will be noticeable unless you're a connoisseur.

    My first time doing colouring in digital.
