    OnkelJoe's Sketchbook

    First of all hello everybody!

    I`ve been following CA for quite a while now, especially the "Sketchbook
    -section" to find Tips'n Tricks to improve my skills and after realizing that
    Deviantart is not the right place to look for critique and "professional help"
    I decided to register here.

    Until now I learned everything from books and visiting nude drawing lessons.
    (if anyone is interested in which books i am/was using I`ll upload a list)

    Goals I want to reach:

    - better knowledge about human anatomy
    - drawing in perspective, drawing movement and action
    - basic skills in drawing/painting digital
    - learning different types of shading
    - reaching a decent skill-level in drawing landscapes and sceneries

    I really hope you guys give me the chance to improve my skills, leave some critique
    and advices to make it easier for me.

    Thanks alot already, for everyone willed to give me a chance.
    (ps. I'm drawing/painting digital for about 7 months now)

    but lets stop talking, here are the first works of mine.
    (the latest are at the end)

    Uhhh I don't know where everyone else is, but you have some good work in here.
    Post #1 pics: 6,7,8,9 look way too simple. I don't know if that is intended or not, but try adding more objects to foreground or background, to keep an eye moving.
    I can only give critique on what I see and how it feels. My bad if it's not constructive enough.

    It's constructive critique, and thank you for telling me.

    Your completely right with adding more things in those drawings.
    I'll do my best to keep the eye moving in my next sketches and paintings.

    thank you for the reply and the feedback

    there are indeed some nice pieces in here. I think you can push your values more in some of them.

    Hi dude,

    Cool stuff, keep taking it to the max.
    If you want my opinion, at this stage you can really benefit from studying some good artists that you like, try studying a frazetta (or whoever it is you like) piece for instance, see what colors he uses, brush strokes, how he treats edges, I feel like a lot of your personal stuff lack some of that knowledge

    I know it might not be as fun as inventing your own concepts, but that's real practice for practice sake

    keep it up

    Hey! You're definetely improving,man!I really like the background mountains in your last environment!Continue doing them!

    I'd recommend studying head structure.I can notice some construction mistakes in the guy in post #20.Loomis is great for that , but I'm sure you already know that.Just draw , draw and keep drawing Loomis construction sketches , so that your hand and eyes would memorize the process and the basic elements in a head.Bridgman is also good , but his approach is more mechanical and a lot more confusing( at least for me).
    Keep going,man , the book looks great!

    Hi man, good start. Saw your head in sick's stream, you need to really push those values on the environments to show depth, that's why I think the two cave one looking out to mountains is the most successful one so far.

    I see a lot of original stuff in here but no studies from life or photo - I would recommend studying to improve your grass and anatomy next

    @rastaray
    I'll definitely do this in the future nick
    @tehmeh
    thank you for the advice, I'll try my best on pushing values
    and your right, I barely do studies from life / photo and if im doing them, then only the traditional way. But I'm going to work on more studys in the future

    Thanks to both of you replying

    here is the result of a 1 hour speedpaint with rastaray aka Othrandir
    (didn't read tehme's crit before painting this one)

    Lovely sketchbook - you have a very nice way to paint the environments, very solid and secure - I like that!
    Maybe try to work a bit more with contrasting colors, and remember to combine cool and warm ones (depending on light/shadow situation. Might help to add even more interest to them.

    Take care
