    Franks FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFU sketchbook.

    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 ^^

    Thanks.

    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.
    Good Luck

    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.

    I like your environments. I think you should increase the contrast in some mountains. Keep working. Great job you have!

    I'll come back to this picture at some point I guess , I kinda like the composition but I really don't know how to detail this picture right at this moment.

    Have you looked up Loomis and Bridgmann yet? I'd recommend it. I think it would help to do some facial anatomy studies in particular. It looks like you're using reference, but not truly looking at the subject. You're using symbols -- eyes as a symbol look much different to how they actually are. Also have a look at facial structure to help you get everything proportioned correctly.

    One last tip -- try not using the chicken scratch lines. A confident, sweeping but badly placed line looks much better than a scratchy line that's in the right spot. It looks neater, and it trains your mind to get it right sooner. It also gives your lines character.

    Looking forward to more. Those are some gorgeous landscapes, you're brave to take them on, they always leave me confused and discouraged, lol. How'd you get started on those? Your landscapes look like you've put far more time into them.
