    Operation "Sketchbook"

    Old introductory post is below.
    From it, one sentence rings as true as ever:

    Any comments, crits, tips, tricks and shortcuts to perfection (ha.ha...) are welcome =D

    Hi,
    I've been dropping by from time to time in recent years to look through all the amazing stuff posted here. This time i figured i can try and participate in the general awesomness of this place and registered.
    Here's my sketchbook.

    I hope to improve (sooner or later). Much needs to be done though- basics refreshed (mr. Loomis, here i come!), errors realized and unlearned, and things i never really started learning tackled at last.

    I decided to take it easy at first and just drew faces from photos/screencaps; and some exercises based on posemaniacs.

    Any comments, crits, tips, tricks and shortcuts to perfection (ha.ha...) are welcome =D

    Can't give you any critique because you're skill level is above mine, so I'll just settle for saying that those are awesome!

    Hope you keep at it!

    [ Hopefully it's not impolite of me, but what comes now is a double post. I simply can't abide putting two updates into one post]

    Long overdue july update:

    Thanks for nice comments, guys! (and sorry it took so long to properly acknowledge their super positive effect on me)

    And yeah, july wasn't too productive for me. But i did manage to draw something before the heatwave hit and rendered me braindead.

    September update :]

    So far it's been a golden era of screenshots.
    I started trying to capture the likeness, but than moved on (uh.. back?) to practice more basic stuff: color schemes, shapes, lighting, narration and mood.
    Sometimes it worked.. sometimes it was just.. practice :T

    Well, i tried drawing from imagination. Mostly to check if i might have learned something while drawing from references.
    I think i got better with shoulders :]

    johnny24:Thanks for kind words! =D Although frankly, i don't think that a skill level is something that validates (or invalidates) a critique. No need to push oneself though. I'm sure one day someone will come by and yell in dismay: "My dear god!!! What are you doing to those people's eyes/ears/nostrils?!?"
    (Yeah, for now, i'm just trying to put exactly two of those on each face... 0___o )
    (or less than that amount, come to think of it...)

    Gpozzo: Yup. I also think, that referenced stuff is better (i did read it right, right?). Still, i guess it's to be expected. Thanks for fueling my motivation! ^^


    And as for today's practice:
    it made me grin! =D

    Greenhouse: Hello! Thanks! =D Drop by from time to time and you most certainly will ^^


    Today's practice:

    the bad:
    I can't draw fast, i can't draw loose and i couldn't draw a strong, decisive line to save my life ;__;
    Believe it or not, but i actually set out to make those gesture thingies nearly everybody around here is doing..
    i have no idea how anybody manages to draw anything in thirty seconds...

    the good:
    some of them turned out nice : ]


    Here they are: small, naked people for your enjoyment.
