Hi you all! I've been lurking here for some while, and I have to say, you all are very talented, hence why I have joined, to communicate with such a great community.
For starters, you can call me madelly, and I'm a freshman in high school. I have been trying to improve my skills. My favorite subject matter are backgrounds/creation of worlds. Constructive criticism and comments are always welcome.
A study I did recently:
An original piece I did for fun today:

I did some facial plane thingymajig studies from Loomis today. Didn't work out too well, but good practice, anyway. Using pen really forces you to think about it a bit more.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to capture the likeliness of someone better? I'm not very good at that.
More sketching today...I did some random 30 second poses and I figure if you can do quick sketching to capture features for poses better, you can also do it for heads. I would have scanned these, but I'm too lazy. lol
Also, here's a random study I did today.
Comments/critiques are welcome. You know these do not look very good. xD
another skilled young'n that drapery study is solid.
30 sec drawings can be so brutal... keep at 'em!
I did some airplane/aircraft studies today. I've done a few before, but I can't say I'm good at them at all. There's also a ton of traditional stuff I've been doing that I'm too lazy to scan...
Well lookie here. Do I see another rock star in the making? Don't you ever, ever stop, young lady You will go far. You keep this up and you'll be able to get into whatever art school you want.
SpiralHorn: Thanks. But for those of you who don't know/don't care (xD) I'm not going to an art school. I'm not aiming for a career in art. It's just a hobby I hope to get good at.
More updates for today. Some landscape and castle rooms thingymajigs I drew for practice. Also some random stuff as well. My tablet pen broke, still waiting for one to get shipped here.
Some lovely work in here.
I especially like your cloth study and the car and interior study further down. Really well observed and drawn.
And I hear you about drawing in pen. I don't do it often because it's so unforgiving, but it really does make you think about everything little thing because once the marks are down, thats it and there's no going back.
Good stuff, and keep posting!
Thanks Candra. I like drawing with pen, too. It's indeed fun.
Anyway, this is sort of a "spammy" post, since I wanted to know something. But I thought I should put some art too. lol
Some various studies:
...And nutella. I haven't eaten nutella, but I hear everyone likes it. Does it taste good? xD
Ok, and now for my question...I am perfectly comfortable drawing all of the "complicated" stuff, but just a while back, I realized that I am having surprising difficulty doing things like drawing cubes and spheres with slight variations and markings. I also sort of fail at consistency. lol So I wanted to draw some cubes and stuff for practice, and I saw this picture on an architecture website: Can someone explain the perspective involved in drawing these stacked boxes? All and any explanations are welcome. Even a red line where you draw in perspective and some lines will help.

Good start, nice sketches, the drapery study stands out, amazing job on that one.
Slight critic on the nutella study, the letters kinda ruin it a bit, they don't curve with the jar and a drop shadow would putt it on the floor, other than that good job.
Keep them coming.
Wow, it's been like 2 weeks. I haven't done much, just a lot of traditional drawing nonsense. lol
Topcross- You're right about the nutella text not being slanted enough. Did you know Photoshop Elements does not have the warp tool? Too useless, I tell you. xD And this picture was referenced. Not sure you can see it that well, but the shadow is slanted towards the back of the room...The shot was blurred. lol
Anyway, here's some of my sketchbook pages. These pages are like ginormous and take 10+ hours to fill. lol
And here's what a typical enviro study from me looks like. I know, pretty pathetic. xD
I haven't been here in forever. lol But I probably will be frequenting my sketchbook more often, because I have to prepare a portfolio by the summer's end for an art program I want to apply for. Anyway, here's some random stuff I drew today.
I like the studies! You got high potential!
