    More random crap I think i'll try putting more colour into my sketchbook soon i'm beggining to notice how bland it looks.

    Havent been able to draw much as ive been weirdly unable to do barely anything the last 2 days is not that ive been tired or depressed but I havent been able to draw or play games and enjoy myself as ive just been feeling incredibly bored I think im starting to get out of that though now so I can start to get back on track.

    What happens when you try to draw fanart of a character from an obscure ps2 game who just happens to also be see through and you decide to draw him in charcoal.
    this horrendous thing happens

    well fuck it trying and failing is better than not trying at all.

    Little life drawing of a snes ive done a lot better i drew this when I was feeling down though so I wasnt concentrating much.

    Tried doing a bit of an eyes study and drew one from imagination on the right

    And finally more loomis work don't know why but I never feel like I get his mannequins right to the point where it just frustrates me.

    Few more things
    I can draw loomis's mannequins decently but ive found when I try to apply them to my imagination drawings or use them for people im drawing I just can't seem to get them to work.
    Attachment 1438258

    Been wanting to get a bit better at perspective third point one turned out horrible though.

    I think you might want to help yourself out with more detailed sketching to capture the proportions of things before moving on to the details. Remember that skulls have the same proportions as faces. Center the eye halfway between the top of the head and the bottom of the the nose halfway between the eyes and chin and the mouth (where the teeth come together) halfway between the nose and chin.

    Good luck
    While I may not be much of an artist, I am more than happy to help with MATHEMATICS! I have over 3 years of tutoring experience, and would love to help you out with anything up to and including calculus Also, as a mechanical engineer, if you want feedback on realist sci-fi or other technical critique, let me know, I'm happy to help!

    Hey, nice start! Keep working on those studies. It'll pay off big time.

    Quixotic: Hey thanks that was a lot of help I need to stop focusing so much on the details over proportions and I keep forgetting that.
    Ive done a few more focusing mainly on the proportions and I think theyve turned out a lot better.
    Attachment 1439811
    I used the pen lines to mark out the shape of the base circle and the construction lines as if I was building a face.
    I might do 50 more of these after I get to 100 because I feel like the other 50 are crap in comparison.

    elgwghee: Hello person whos username I find incredibly hard to pronounce
    yeah im already seeing slight improvements with my imagination work feel like I need to do more still lifes though havent done many recently.

    I actually did 3 colour studies in pastel yesterday but I only got one done that actually looked good.
    the first one was in black and white and it looked so bad that im not even going to post it I only really have one gray one black and white so I couldent really get any of the tones right.
    This is the second one
    Attachment 1439814
    Its alright but again I couldent get many of the tones right what was convenient about the cliff landscape I did was that most of the tones I already had ready that and I really had problems trying to get the sky to look right and I lost concentration halfway through so I did it again.
    Attachment 1439812
    It looks better but I still don't think I got the sky right I think I should probably find a good guide on mixing pastels as im finding it really hard to mix them right.

    Well thats all for now ill upload more later.

    More stuff
    Couple of still life drawings I really hate the way that book turned out as I was actually drawing it from the side not above and it just came out looking like this.
    Attachment 1443409
    Just a few random face drawings one of rambo and the other two from a laurel and hardy boxset. I apolagise for rapeface hardy though.
    Attachment 1443412
    Couple of pen gesture drawings
    Attachment 1443411
    I actually went through about 4 pages trying to get this right and im still not sure if I have.
    Attachment 1443410
    Really proud of these I think there the best skulls ive done so ar except for 74
    I think I should retry that one.

    Some definite improvement showing as I skim through here -- the skulls (being that you've done so many studies of them that it's easy to compare) especially show progress!

    Looks like you're getting better control of your line work, too..

    Always try to keep sketchy-looking lines to a minimum.. they look less confident. (i.e. your last gesture drawings vs your skulls -- one you're definitely more confident with and look how much cleaner your lines are!) If you draw with sure marks (even if the only thing you're sure of is that they're wrong XD), you look like you're doing things on purpose rather than being afraid to do them because you don't know how. You always have an eraser (or some whiteout) - don't be afraid to be bold! (And then you use your eraser/whiteout to fix everything you just did totally wrong and chalk it up to getting more experience. XD) Can't fix mistakes that you never make, right? That's how we all learn.. Making.. many.. many.. mistakes.

    I love that you're drawing from life so much. Make sure you're paying attention to the values and showing the darkest darks and the lightest lights -- push your values as much as you can. For an added challenge, try to spot how objects that are near other objects bounce light around.. For instance, an apple in a bowl -- the apple won't have a flat shadow all the way down to the bowl where they meet, the bowl will bounce a little light back onto the apple and lighten the form from that direction slightly, giving the form a rounded appearance. Subtle changes like that will help you describe your forms on the next level - see if you can spot it in the objects you're studying.

    Keep up the great work! ^_^

    Hey mate. Like it's already said, it's great to see you drawing so much. now for advice, i'd say what you should focus on first is on form. To me, form is one of the very basis of drawing, an the first kind of "proportion" we can use to make sure my drawing looks right. Right now, yo uare tackling a quite a few subjects in these studies, and I do that from time to time but try to devote more time to one specific theme, like the skulls. What make your skull drawings stand out to the rest of the drawings here, is taht yo ugot the form right, even if most are nto rendered or specially detailed, so try to focus on doing simple things as perfectly as you can manage; measure things, take your time to make sure stuff is as perfect as you can get it to be eg. if drawing a pot and noticing one side is bigger than the other, don't proceed to render or do anything else but correcting the form and thn only then go for it. Keep un updating man can't wait to see some more progress!

    Hey hey, it looks like what would benefit you best for sure would be to do many more Loomis and Bridgeman studies. These would help you immensely to see how the form breaks down. Remember when drawing skulls and every shape in the human body for that matter, that they are all derived from basic shapes. When doing your skulls (especially if from reference) remember to measure, measure, measure. It will benefit you greatly to see how the skull breaks down in terms of proportion before really jumping in and trying to shade it. Focus more on getting the form down first.

    Anyway... more as comments as I see more posts...

    Oh hey, someone closer to my own skill level (though still ahead of me, looks like! ).

    It may just be the scanner, but it looks like some of the images are a bit squished in their proportions? The latest ones look better than they did, and the scan quality is a bit higher, so again it might be the scanner. I know mine does weird stuff with my images sometimes.

    I'll be stopping by again soon.
    Let's do this.

    Agreeing with what was said about the chicken scratch lines -- incorrect, confident lines look much better than accurate, scratchy lines. Sweep your lines from the shoulder, not scratchy lines with the wrist. At first it's really intimidating to draw like that, because you're going to get a lot of lines wrong, but stick with it and you'll see the difference very soon.

    Also, look closer at your references. Measure with your eyes. It's tedious at first, yes, and it's very easy to miss detail you haven't yet trained your eyes to see, but it's a skill just like art and gets easier every time until it becomes second nature.

    To help with your gestures, take a look at this: http://www.awn.com/mag/issue3.3/3.3p...pudrawing.html

    The trick is to capture movement more than the shape, although it's much easier said than done. Gesture will also teach you to learn to see basic shapes in a very short time, and is the perfect place to practice your sweeping/confident lines. Try it out!
