Im 15 years old, live in Dublin, Ireland. Im more or less a complete begginer and im not very skilled but im planning on improving from now on .
Critique's are appreciated and any constructive criticism would be great thanks.
just some study on form and lighting.
Its a metal teapot encase you didnt notice
update to the last study, added a dark outline to right side just to define it more
I dont know what to do with this now, I think i have a decent enough grasp on values. It could be laughable but meh . Art instruction from a wise old artist would be greatly appreciated
Id like to klnow where to go from the value study part of this.
Go darker . Add blacks and darks, they add to the image, not take away
Alex.Zelenski - yeah I try to dodge using more darker and brighter tones as I can never blend them properly , they always end up like black directly against white.
Il have to do more values studies and do it.
Kawauchi - Ill attempt A skull study next time and use it as reference thanks
I'll try using blacks today on some other still life.
Thanks for all the advice guys!
I also tend to fear the darks. It helps me if I make one of these
on the side of my paper so I can see what values I'm falling short of.
You might also want to do some studies with traditional media, where you can manipulate values somewhat more immediately instead of fussing with dodge and blend and whatnot.
More still life studies..
I think the first one looks better but i dunno if its too much shadow?
Its a bike horn.
Its been a while since I posted but im back and going to post as often as i can and hope to get lots of feedback !
This is a quick doodle i did in photoshop just to get the ball rolling, i cant seem to get my lines as straight on the tablet as i can when im drawing on paper, hopefully its just a matter of adjusting
Some scraps from the sketchbook, not very good content but its better than not posting i suppose!
they go in order of old to new but it seems to me that im going backwards.

I can't quite tell what form the squiggly one in here is:
But it's a cool exercise!
Keep experimenting with those forms.
If I may suggest, check out this book, it may give you a hand with your perspective drawing http://www.alexhays.com/loomis/Andre...%20Drawing.pdf

I have been uploading in small chunks of what i have done so far but im just going to upload all i have done so that im not uploading the stuff i did a few days ago. I feel like i have learned alot in the past few days since i got back into it and i think im going on the right track C&C is appreciated!
Did these pages today on my new sketchbook.
Hopefully these will show up better than the Moleskine one that i have been using prior.
The dogs were drawn from life and the heads drawn from memory...which is pretty obvious considering how crappy they are.
I cant seem to capture character in my drawings, i can get down the very basic head structure but when i sketch someone it never ends up looking like them, maybe if there age was doubled and hit with a brick. a very hard brick at that.
Drapery studies, considering ive never done them before im not too dissapointed
