    Sketchy Sketches Of Doom

    Hey there!

    I'm actually 16 years old, from Germany, started drawing like 2 and a half years ago (mostly cartoonish and manga-styled) and finally think that I'm going to post some of my sketches to probably get a few helpful critiques


    Here some first tries with more realstic stuff (dramatically failed though)

    I don't want to write about your figure studies, keep doing them. But heads... They are closest to me. So you want to learn to draw them realistically. You already have some face drawing skills, it shouldn't be that hard to level up... But right now it's very apparent you are used to stylized drawing. Too wide or big eyes, pseudo shading (and always the same. it makes your faces more appealing and doesn't so much to do with showing real form)... You don't handle hair as a 3d object either yet. The "lighting" is always the same, play with it more Especially when the head is front viewed, it's good to have assymmetrically lit half faces. I like dramatic lighting, it's interesting and tend to reveal the form of the head, "aesthetical" photo portraits with light everywhere are the worst.

    Try not to "render" so much. Value isn't as important as cementing the foundations into your brain. As shiNIN said, try avoiding the stylized eyes and shading and focus more on the anatomy. Keep it up! :]

    Your line quality is already pretty solid. I can tell that you just need to practice practice practice!

    Draw figures from life a lot, it will really help.

    I like posemaniacs but I like http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php

    too because it really starts giving you a vocabulary of how real people can actually stand. Plus you can draw faces if you want which is good practice

    cool sketchbook!

    As already said, focus on getting anatomy and proprotions right like you have been doing. I wouldn't say never draw stylized or render untill you get anatomy right cause wheres the fun in that? but it is important that at this stage, you learn to draw what you see so yo ucan then apply style to it. Try doing a portrait or self portrait fairly frequently, that helped me a lot with face proportions and to get less cartoony results.

    Keep up those studies. They're looking good. You are warping bones here and there, though. To fit the outer anatomy, it looks like. (In the march 16 sketch, you have the arm bones bending at the wrist, for example.)

    Also, watch your ellipses when you're drawing objects with round bases, etc. They don't look like they're wrapping around. That is, their 'roundness' doesn't match the angle they're being viewed at. Try drawing through.
