    Improvement Sketchbook - Digital and Traditional

    So, i've been exploring the site for a few days. As many others here, i want to bring the work to a professional level, and nothing better than a sketchbook to help one's improvement. I'm not sure if i will keep posting studies here, because there are many other threads to help in specific issues, but i will try to make it simple and get right to the point, which is artwork.

    As i am a student with no more than 1 year of drawing, i will focus on line work and value studies, and eventually, get to the colored and final pieces.

    Hope you guys give some feedback and criticism (hardcore criticism). I will constantly update this thread to keep practicing.

    And nice to meet you.

    Hey man, thanks for commenting on my sketchbook.

    Seeing your current level of work after only 1 year of drawing is pretty inspirational and makes me want to keep working on my own drawings. How many hours/day did you average in that first year?

    Hello! Nice to meet you too and welcome to CA! (seeing you're relatively new here )

    You're rendering skills are really awesome, I especially like the first knight painting. Although I feel there are some fundamentals lacking, you might want to read up on some figure drawing lessons. I encourage you to check out Villpu, he teaches some really good principals on figure drawing.

    Thank you, it is awesome to see someone being inspired by my efforts, hope we can improve even more. And about hours/day, i probably did 7~8 h per week, because i spent more time researching about the science behind drawing and paint. i had to make sure to know what i needed to optimize my practice routine, even though i had little time to practice.

    Thank you for the feedback, but i hate to say that the best work you see here is not from imagination, i combined it with observation... I still have some trouble to believe that doing this will make me better... bu anyway, i already checked some vilppu stuff, it is really great. I will try to do some more studies to master those approaches in "retangular forms" and "spherical forms" for the figure.

    So, i just forgot to post the line work i did for the base of the knight. And some more studies.

    Thank you Kaihartj, it is really good to practice with animals because they have many diferent textures and structures to render, and also, i feel that they are one of my weaknesses, so... gotta do a lot of it. Here goes another one.
