    Mika's Sketchbook [[Update 12-7-12]]

    Why?
    Well, I've gotten into a habit of lurking CA and I decided a Sketchbook would be a good way to track my Progress. Please do comment as I believe whole heatedly that others advice can help one improve.

    Me
    I am currently 20 years of age a Junior in College and reside in Sunny Florida. I am attending Ringling college of Art and design and Majoring in Illustration. I currently love doing both traditional and digital art. I am always working to improve myself as a person and artist.

    If you have a Blog, please follow me! I update my blog with more finalized work!

    Hey there, I see that there are some anatomical mistakes I'd suggest doing more pencil studies.
    Good luck

    Hmm.. anatomical indeed but let me add..Search for books from bridge field, andrew loomis and other anatomy books. Draw a few people waiting or sitting down in the park. Look and draw what you see.

    Never forget though... With one step taken, even a journey of a thousend miles doesn't seem as long. So keep walking!!

    Thank you :]

    It's been difficult for me to work on Anatomy mostly because I can't afford books and my school is quite strict on studies like the nude form. However I do try in my spare time to practice >w<

    gotta love those sketches! you did a great job representing shadow, form, and measurement. In love with the woman's face via pencil and the gold fish sketch!
    Just draw your ass off. Whatever you do, don't -- stop -- drawing...

    looks like your off to a pretty good start. Anyway I saw a few things you could improve on and I did a few quick paint overs, hope you dont mind.

    Some of the noses you have drawn are a little flat, be careful to project the nose out of the face. The nose projects out along a axis perpendicular or normal to the front facial plane(see notes). you also have to make sure your drawings are not flat by overlapping forms more, especially when your drawing is foreshortened.

    Look through the high rated mentor threads and the tutorial stickies, keep at it.
