    CArbonBased Sketchbook.

    Hello everyone.
    My name is Dmitry. I hail from NS, Canada and I like to draw a bit in my spare time.
    Half the time I have no idea what I'm doing. Hence any critiques/advice/comments will be greatly appreciated.
    Apologies for occasional uncleanness of the sketches. Still messing with the scanner trying to figure it out fully.
    Thank you for your time.

    good start, very interesting to look through, your pencil work is cleaner than you think, also good muscle studies.

    One thing I would say is experiment with different mediums eg. pen, ink, pastel etc. You can get surprising results.

    Hi there, you got some nice stuff here. For figure drawing I suggest trying capturing skeletal structure underneath muscles. Try not to decide outline too soon, and start from feet, really focus defining gravity and sense of weight balance. Sort of like...drawing from inside, not with outlines.

    On the other side I love your contour drawings. Especially the long haired girl (sitting on the floor looking down) and the guy with helmet above. I like how your lines are subtle and not overpowering in these two drawings. It looks like you are searching the form freely with lines, and that's very nice. The opposite is the horned muscle man with ninja sword. Looks like you defined the outline without studying skeleton too soon, and losing the sense of what you are doing with lines.

    sorry for the freaking long crit. hope this helps.

    Your rendering skills are amazing. Really like your studies. Just recommend you to keep doing studies. Also wanna see paintings! If you didnt do any, doing it will broaden your skills enormous.

    Falchion - Thanks. More coming up.
    Hunin - Thanks. You are right. I virtually have no experience with any other media. Will work on that once I get through with my no good paper sketchbook. Will try some watercolors on my new heavier paper sketchbook.
    Deepinonespersona - Haha I don't think I am, but what a great thought! Thank you.
    bobtail - I will try to deliver. Thanks for a visit.
    raqmo - Thank you! I love long crits! Interesting how you took notice of two sketches I myself didn't think much of.I had some good refs for them though. Probably why they look *correct*. But that's great! I do exactly opposite of what you suggested, worrying more about details. All the freaking time.. Gesture drawings are especially a pain in that regard. I will try to slow down and look at the form.
    PontusEuxinus - I will try to get more studies done on different subjects. As to paintings, I did maybe 3 watercolor *paintings* way back, I liked it and it was such a different thing to do. I will try to resume on that. Thank you for a visit.

    Here is something else. Some studies even.
