Sknawt learns to draw!
Hi people of CA! My name is Alex and I'm new to drawing. I have a huge list of books I want to read so I'll be going through them and posting studies here.

Second to last is supposed to be a master study of Kathe Kollwitz's self portrait; I've never learned about her in my high school art history class, but I really liked her sp; unfortunately, my copy came out horrible... T~T Last one is a sketch of my little brother watching a movie.

I never knew cross hatching smoothly is so hard! I definitely have more appreciation for it now!

Photo study, followed by tone bars and some Loomis. The photo study took me a long ass time; I'm learning how to blend with a q-tip lol :3 Oh yeah, the edges got ripped when I took the tape off.

I love how meticulous you are with your proportion studies.

Fist pic. is a photo study. Next are anatomy studies; I never would've thought that backsides would be so hard ... ! I think I'll need to refer to the previous portion of the book where they do the full 8 head back-shot instead of going straight to the quick set-up in 3/4th.

Wow, welcome to CA! Those are great studies, like the other said, keep it up! : D The photo study in the last set (lady in the suit)- I see that on her cheek you smudged, which is definitely an easy way out to make a gradient. Try to achieve that without smudging! I see that your photo studies show a lot of light and shadow but as for the midtones, it's less varied, or barely there. If you're doing a photo study again soon, try including a larger range of values! That's all I can think of for critique (I don't think I'm really qualified to give it either) but I hope that helps, you are doing great. I look forward to seeing more.

Thank you so much for the critique, I definitely appreciate it! I tried putting it to good use on today's photo-study, even though I wasn't able to finish it I did get a bit lost with all those folds in the cloth on the lower half, so I tried to make some of it up to the best of my ability lol!!! I stopped smudging, but I had some moments where I just had to use a kneaded eraser to pick up some excessive graphite.

Haven't posted in a bajillion years; haven't given up though! Quick selfportrait before going to sleep. I'm really trying to be able to draw using only a 6B charcoal pencil. Anyways, good night.
