    Cool Progression and Practice

    Hello, I have decided to finally create an account and make a sketchbook so I can get better. Currently, I plan to go to Ringling for Computer Animation, but that's not going to happen until I get better at art first. Feedback/tips/"noticing what i'm doing wrong and telling me" is very much appreciated. I will also start by posting some drawings from the very beginning of my sketchbook first before the current ones.
























    Oh, and sorry about using the insert image thing instead of the manage attachments. It said the file was too big and I don't know how to make an image file smaller.

    Update







    ^Tried to do "dry brushing" but I don't think I was doing it correctly though.




    By the way, does anybody happen to have a link to really good, easy to understand guide on what perspective lines are and how to use them?

    Well, to start, good choice in picking animation. ^_^ It's pretty much the best thing in the universe.
    So far I think animals are one of your biggest strengths. Your cats are cute as all get out- I like the little happy one, second from the bottom.
    Overall, your work gives the impression that your in a hurry to learn. Currently you've got lots of great quick studies.
    I think slowing down and doing some simple perspective exercises will help you a bunch. Sometimes 1 study where you take your time and think out problems can equal 12-15 quick studies.
    Draw some simple scenes using only cubes, cylinders, and cones. Take your time and work out the perspective of your scene. Practice drawing lines across the surface of cylinders and spheres.

    In your latest post your perspective lines look like you have the basics down.

    Good luck with Ringling, & happy sketching.

    I will try to slow down and work more on single sketches instead of trying to make a whole bunch of quick sketches and I will also try to draw geometric shapes from now on like you said. Thank you so much for the feedback, it is greatly appeciated.
