    Looks like a good foundation especially for 16. Can't really say much besides keep doing all the things your doing. Good to try a bunch of things to learn. I see still lifes, studies on specific body parts, gestures, some perspective stuff.... etc.... good to learn it all lol.


    As for your digitals I always suggest this tutorial.

    http://www.floobynooby.com/ICG/artvalues.html


    Basically try to not to be scribbly with it. Flatten and simplify. If I'm looking right it looks like your using opacity with a small brush and drawing a lot with that. From some amazing digital painters I've seen they'll create like a gesture or basic construction for a figure or the general idea in a layer (not permanent so separate it to delete later) then block in the values first basically then focus on things like blending later.

    Kuddlekins' Sketchbook- Updated 7/13

    Thanks, guys, for your supportive comments! I feel so welcome here. I would very much like to stay


    @Sporus: aaaaa thank you! I am flattered to have you watching me ; 3; I will do as you say and continue my studies! I hope to be able to feed myself with my artwork.

    As far as Stephen King goes, his books are on a very long and impossible reading list of mine. I will read them soon, though!

    @Nyoron: Thank you so much! I am happy to know that you like my work.


    --
    I also confess that I was intimidated by the prospect of going back to work and to school next week, and that weighed on my mind and dampened my attitude all day. This holiday vacation has been so fantastic because all I had to do was draw, sleep, and eat, and I could do them whenever I wanted. I can't do anything about it now, but it is on the back of my mind. Where will I fit studying into my life when school comes back into the mix? Sadly, I'm not superhuman enough to sacrifice too much sleep without everything crashing and burning around me.

    Oh well, I want this a lot, so I'll make it work!

    --

    I don't have much to show today, just some vanderpoel studies. I am in shame;;;;

    Nice pencils! I really like the arm and leg studies -- makes me want to do some myself! Don't forget to attach some torsos to those though

    Hello Kuddle,

    Thanks for dropping by. For 16 you're off to a good start. I see some good studies, keep those up, they are necessary to forge a good base.

    Just as Fierce said, there is a ton of info in the tutorial he linked you.

    Not much to say here a part from things that were already pointed out by others..

    Keep going!

    Thank you for your kind words and support.



    The following is an art free post aaaand instead there is a rant. Gosh, I hope you don't mind too, too much. I just needed to get it out somewhere.

    As of late I have been thinking some ugly thoughts. I can't even get them out into words, it's like they're swirling together and can't sort themselves out.



    My art. I feel so low on the scale. Like I want to get better but it doesn't come fast enough and I feel stupid. I don't feel good enough. I never feel good enough. I feel impatient to get better and the frustration that ensues makes me want to throw the pencil across the room. But that does nothing!

    Arting gives me headaches lately. It gives me headaches because I know I am not good and when I study I feel like I do so much and yet learn so little. That damn learning curve! Instead of a few ice picks I wish I had a jet pack. Getting to the top would be so much nicer. Sure, the notion of blood, sweat and tears is romantic, but I hate it, hate it, hate it.


    And next, what do I do when school comes around? School sucks. It sucks away my time. All that great time that could be spent on studies is spent on busy work.

    Everybody seems to think that school is so important, but I don't. Art is my life. It is my future. Art is important.

    School is just. What I do.

    Teachers, parents, and even my sisters would tell me that's messed up, but there we go.

    So now, the question is.

    How do I fit school, my job, and my life into one day? I need to sleep, you know. Or else everything just goes down the toilet.

    In the end just look at this situation and there is only one word I have for it.

    "Fuck."



    So that's it! I appreciate input, but I understand if you don't feel like commenting xD;; Such heavy stuff in here!

    Hello everyone.

    It's kind of amazing how fast time goes by when you're not thinking about it.

    I think I burned out after submitting that last post and I was feeling down in the dumps for a while. I was feeling intimidated because my art wasn't where I wanted it to be.

    Then I acquired Glenn Vilppu's tutorials and it helped me remember something that I had forgotten: Art should definitely take effort, but you need to look forward to doing it. It has to be fun!

    Trixtar Aaah, now I'm blushing. Look at what you've done.
    Thank you so much abooboobo

    tempest-haze Thank'ya missy! I will do!

    ven- u 3u I will do my best~~

    Tea of Doom I shall continue! Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Aragah I am happy to hear that. C: Let's progress together!

    Sean McClain Thanks! I think I learned a lot from that snowscape piece. I'll have to do some more.

    Sporus I was deeply touched by your reply to my rant. I didn't know what to say, but I want you to know that it cheered me up. Thank you so, so much.

    --


    So to briefly sum up what happened these past three weeks, I rearranged my room, sketched and doodled, and bought myself painter 12 and a large intuos 4. This tablet is a thing of beauty. I don't miss my old one. When it arrived on Wednesday I disappeared into my room to play with it.

    The first picture is what I've been working with on and off for the past week or so. I might never finish it, because it keeps evolving through the stuff I learn about painting and faces.

    The last pic is a screenshot from my next project: 100 silhouette gestures from observation. Proportions are one of my weak points, and I figure that if I just focus on that without any of the other stuff my work will definitely improve. My time limit is about 2-3 minutes. Right now I'm just sort of dying on the inside.

    Until later!

    Wow it's been a while.

    Celebrated my 17th on the 30th. Took a long ridiculous break from drawing seriously because I was burning out and focused on doing things I like. I still don't know what I want this drawing thing to be, but it's therapeutic.
