Dan Tang's Sketchbook
I've reached a point in my life where I want dedicate more time to draw as I'm passionate about drawing! Now I want to see what I can really accomplish. I've started this sketchbook and will try to show all drawings/paintings, I welcome your comments and would really appreciate any constructive feedback. So let's begin!
So a little about me: I've drawn figures and products casually since 2009. As I was studying product design I became accustomed to basic perspective, and understanding of forms in 3D but didn't take this further. Then I attended some life drawing classes. I'm inspired by Syd Mead, Feng Zhu, Scott Robertson, films, novels, and my younger brother Matt. His work is great have seen his artwork come a long way. You can check out his work here http://www.getyourtangout.blogspot.co.uk/

Earlier this week I sketched two guys in fashion and uniforms, dating back to the 1940s as a little project.
The first is an American born oriental guy in 1940s US Police Uniform. The second is an obese fella in a waistcoat and full suit.

Good so far. One think I would like to see you do is take a mirror, a pencil, and some paper. Draw yourself as detailed as possible. Or draw someone else. Or drawing something with a lot going on. Just try and render it as best as possible.
From what I've seen so far you just need more studies. So study study study. I know its lame. Also don't forget to draw things that you like. If you draw things you don't care for all the time you'll get sick of drawing!

Today I was travelling back from Manchester so I decided to do some environment comps, imagining places I've been before and trying to put them onto paper. I did a quick gesture of a lady sitting opposite me, then doodled heads, man they look strange. More practice needed!
