    Annie's book of sketches

    Hay guys!

    Been lurking for a few days and decided to show y'all some of my drawings - I really want to improve so if you spot any mistakes, major or minor, please inform me

    In the past I've done a lot of sketches from photos and from life, but I don't think I really learnt that much except how to copy. Then a few weeks ago I started anatomy and recently I've been trying to learn drapery... so I can clothe my people so they don't get cold I'm also trying to go back to basics.

    Attached are a sample of the things I've done over the past few weeks (or older). Perhaps you've noticed a running error or have some advice for the future. This would be awesome as I really don't know where I'm going with my 'art'. Any suggestions on what to focus on or try would be incredibly useful!

    Sorry about the photos. The scanner works but it's not very good...hope you enjoy these for now. First few are still life, next few are from photos (yeah the felt tip one has problems), next few are humans (been doing lots of posemaniacs loose sketches), and the last few are from my imagination. If you want to know more about anything just ask

    Welcome to CA.

    Looks like you're on the right track, you've got a good handle of the basics. Those hands are looking nice and proportionate too, which is a tricky thing to do! I'd recommend working on your lines a little bit, make them less scratchy. Try doing a drawing using as few passes with the pencil as possible, making long smooth lines.

    Keep it up, and you'll be flying in no time!

    Thanks for the encouragement, guys! I'll try that now, Clur, but what do I do if (when) the lines come out wrong? xD Cheers!

    You got a nice feelings to your drawings!
    The best advice I can give you is just to keep drawing from life, and sometimes from photographs.

    sorry for the boring

    Thanks for dropping by, everyone
    Jerry, I hope we do kick butt one day ;D
    So I'm back to drawing humans, and I'm really trying to see the form and use longer lines instead of scratchy ones. It made me slow down quite a bit. Oh and I actually picked up a rubber once or twice! I also picked up some willow charcoal, which was too much fun (don't know if I used it right and it's smudged now oh well).
    First is a before and after type thing. Last is from imagination - something seems VERY WRONG about it, the hip and legs particularly....but I guess I should do these to test what I've learnt?
    Also does anyone have any suggestions for drawing books, general or anatomy?? I wanna improve loads before a-levels start

    I decided to spice up my sketchbook with some exciting perspective studies! Working through this wonderful thread. More to come I think. Also I've filled my real life sketchbook, yaay, now to buy a second one :| Hopefully one without bible-thin pages....
