    Sketchbook of a Novice-*6/23/12*

    Hey everyone ,

    People call me Dom, 20 y.o, living in Philly. I taught myself how to draw and never attended art school. Been lurking around this site for a while looking at everyone's sketchbooks and I thought its about time I give it a shot and make one (After seeing everyone's good work I've been too nervous to make one all this time -_-). From the time I started elementary school to my final days in high school I would draw my little manga doodles but after graduating i got a bamboo tablet, some anatomy books, and decided to take this seriously and now here we are.

    Everything in this sketchbook will be 100% digital since i don't have a scanner or a camera and the program I will mainly be using is SAI (Photoshop is laggy o.o)
    Btw, i have no experience in painting but I'll try to learn, Thought you should know.

    Any advice to help me "level-up" will be appreciated.

    ENJOY!!!

    Those shoulders need some work. Drawing arms upwards like that can be difficult -- there's a lot of musculature and overlapping/underlapping going on that, if not rendered properly or at all, can make the position look very off. At the moment, the arms just look like straight, muscle-less cylinders coming out of her shoulder joint. Maybe try the same pose with a reference to get a sense of what actual muscles are there and how they look?

    Welcome to the forums Rom, you have some nice anatomical studies there. Bridgman's is a good source too. Stiff here and there but you're on target.
