Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Finally I got around to making a sketchbook. Shame on me for taking so long.
Here goes nothing! A few pencil drawings and one color study of my juggling ball. The bird was referenced from a photo, the doll was drawn from life. I think everyone here knows that sphere.
The avatar caught my attention.
The best thing about your sketches: you don't rely on lines, but use shapes and shades to draw. Which is fantastic and the way to realism.
I don't know you, so tell me: how long have you been drawing ?
Keep going !
Thank you for the kind words!
It depends on how you define "drawing", I guess I have been doodling since I could hold a crayon, but I only recently got into "serious" drawing. You could say the serious phase started when I joined CA one year ago. I don't think deviantART counts, really.
Edit: Ah, forgot to mention that I'm 19 xD
Hey Hi you! really nice studies so far ^^!
As an answer to your question on my sketchbook, I thaught I might tell you here :p
So, there are many website I particulary like as reference! (BE careful, some may contain nudity and thnigs some people may be offended with!)
First of al, there is :http://www.posemaniacs.com/ A really good site for anatomy, muscle, position and movement of the body!
For anatomy reference, I use: http://inspirationalartworks.blogspot.ca/p/anatomy-images.html?zx=6d95d282fd203d1b really great!
For normal posing, almost as nude session, you should see those 2 websites : http://www.lovecastle.org/draw/ and http://www.artsyposes.com/
Finally, for concrete, sexy and nice poses I use for reference (viewer discretion may be advised) are:
1: http://x-art.com/models/ (girls reference) (really great for various pose, great lighting and amazing photo quality! ha models are also freakin cute (may contain a little bit of porn but mostly artistic nude, it's up to you) you can download most of their set free here: http://www.filecrop.com/search.php?w...r=1&engine_h=1
2: http://yellowasian.tumblr.com/ (men references) (really great for nice and sexy anatomy, the kind of body every guy would like to have! (may contain very little of homosexual men x men content, once again it's up to you) photo are less good quality than x-art but still, it's really good!
I thinks this just wrap it up, hope it might help you! keep on working hard girl! i'll be back!
PS: you should take a search on google about "Andrew loomis" book, they're free and really good for education and reference!

@Wavenwater: Thank you very, very much I would never have found those sites on my own! Now I guess I'm gonna take up anatomy again after not drawing a single human for... Half a year... Urks.
I have already downloaded Loomis Amazing books. Thanks again!
@doris: Thank you!
@RandAlThor: Thanks a lot, more is coming!
Edit: Some nail polish. That bottle has a very... odd shape, which made it an interesting challenge. I had trouble with... Umm, just about every aspect of it, but that's what makes it a challenge worth accepting!

I hope it's ok to make a new post for every new sketch...
Dang, this one was awful. I see quite a few lines that could be better, but I'm going to quit before I get too frustrated. Still, I quite enjoy doing color studies.
A weird hairclip with a even weirder cast shadow and odd perspective. Whatever. Next object!
