Hello , I'm Frank , 21, from Germany and decided to make a sketchbook to show people and myself the process of becoming a good artist.
I've had my first proper art lesson in September 2011 , but only got the proper motivation early this year when I got my tablet. So I haven't really been drawing for all that long. Ever since then I try to work as hard as possible though most of the times I slack off and watch a movie , try to get inspired by my fellow peers here on CA or just take random naps that mess up my sleep schedule...
I wake up , draw , go to school , draw during classes , go home , draw more , go to bed reading a Digital Masters Vol. 6 and fall asleep.
Such is my life right now.
Critique , comments and such would be nice.
Hope you enjoy my sketchbook ^^

Good start to your SB!
Only thing I'd offer off the bat would be to keep exploring line and it's integrity/fluidity.
This can be done by working up values too, and pushing a sense light/shadow in your forms.
I sometimes have tendency to get a little 'brush happy' in digital work, meaning I loose things to textures being a bit overworked...try a couple brushes only for a few environments and see how it goes...
just my two cents, not really a crit but a hopefully a few tips, there's plenty of wonderful eyes and minds here to help you.
Thanks for the tip MikeL , I'll keep that in mind , I noticed it myself that sometimes I just get too brush-happy because I want a certain detailed look although I haven't really understood how to properly detail something yet.
The portrait is from last Friday and the sketchbook from today , the things i draw into the sketchbook are mostly from what I remember or from imagination.. Not very confident on paper yet.
I had to make the pictures darker otherwise nothing could be seen.
