    Miscellaneous Sketches

    Hi ,everybody!

    I'm new here, but have been posting on Deviant art for sometime. I'm a an amateur art lover, who sketches a drawing, or an illustration using whatever tool is on hand, whenever i feel like it.

    I have been advised by a DA member to checkout this great community, and so i stumbled upon you guys, and WOW do i feel like home here!

    Looking at the level of skill and talent showcased here, i feel humbled.. yet, i look forward to learn more, be inspired, and hopefully hone my skills and raw talent.

    Here are some of my sketches:

    Hi there, and welcome!

    I especially like the last two drawings in your most recent entry, the pen mountains and the pastel landscape. Are these from life or photographs?

    Thanks, Xnatje! I, too, prefer those sketches.. I believe that you tend to appreciate sketches more than other types of art, as being a skilful sketcher yourself.

    The hatching and pen really stand out here. Perhaps try to put that style into the digital aspects. Colouring under the lineart and such

    Thank you, Kevin. I've yet to buy my first tablet. What you see is painted using a mouse. You are right, i have to work on my digital art studies.

    These are few studies in graphite pencil. I'm trying to grasp the structure of human anatomy.

    Thanks, Xamllew! I've seen your "neck of the woods", and i was impressed. My profession isn't related to art, and i've been sketching on and off for many years, which shows in some of my poor studies. I have some major catch up to do! I'm almost 34 yrs now
    Thanks for commenting, and all the best to you.

    Hey dude, cool pen studies, I also like that oil pastel drawing, do more of those. As far as your figures and tree studies go, I would suggest 'loosening up' a little...dont be afraid to draw through. They come off as being stiff because it seems like you're trying to make it perfect on the first stroke. Now theres something to be said about strong line economy but in my opinion if it comes at the loss of life (gesture) and structure in the drawing then its not worth it. Try giving the trees a personality based on the kind of mood or energy they are giving off, or how they make you feel. Take a look at sketches by Luc Desmarchelier for examples. Anyway I hope that makes sense. Keep at it and good luck.

    Thanks for the advice, sprogis7, much appreciated. I'll try to let loose my pen while sketching, and be bolder with lines.
    You have such a beautiful sketchbook btw!
