Long time Lurker, first time poster. I was a little skeptical about posting my stuff on here but decided to take a chance, probably will help me achieve my goals in becoming a better artist. Ive always been drawing but never really took it seriously, I took a 4 year break and just recently started up again. So It feels like Im starting all over again,I'll be updating 3 times a week or maybe more. Feel free to critique!
Hey, welcome to the forum! If you are looking for some books to start out with may I suggest Bridgman's a Complete Guide to Drawing From Life and Betty Edward's Drawing on The Right Side of The Brain. Aside from that, draw as much from life as you can and don't be afraid to push the darks when rendering. For instance, in your drawing of the eggs that shadow could have been a tad bit darker. Experiment and have fun, good luck!
You've got a great start for a sketchbook so far. One thing you can work on is line quality. It's something I struggle with too and there are lots of great exercises such as blind contour drawings and connecting dots with straight lines that you can do as a warmups.
Thank you for the feedback! haha yeah I tend to get messy when it comes to lines, I'll practice what you told me to do, I hope it will help, I'll post more as soon as I can though, Thanks for stopping by
Good work so far. I notice that you have far more confidence in your line work than I do...that said look around for others' gesture drawings and see how they use construction lines as a guide. I just started doing that in my gestures and in two days it has helped a ton!
