    Welp, hello fellow facepuncher.

    I really like your black and white drawings, you should post more of those.
    I guess you migh want to separate your blacks and whites more, like adding more contrast to the piece, and the tree in the foregrounds looks too dark in comparison to other elements in the drawing.

    Gotcha. Will pick a photo with more contrast next time.
    And yes, I will do a lot of black and white drawings because my sketchbook cant handle watercolor pencils and I still have ~100 pages left. Would you recommend using color photos for value study with graphite or turn them black and white for easier recognition of different shades?

    Quick practice today, shading, values and uncomfortable lines (like drawing a line from top left to bottom right without rotating the paper)

    Looks like all the effort went into building on the left... I rushed it a little bit after realized that the overall composition is not the best.

    Interesting stuff and you certainly are not afraid of colour, which is great. You mentioned an issue with leaves - the issue is to try and not draw every one, of course! Feng Zhu has done a couple of nice vids on mas producing leaves - but that is, of course, digital. Best thing to do is to just suggest the mass and perhaps pick out a few areas in the forefront to render in more detail to fool the eye into thinking it is all like that. If that makes sense!

    Hey there!

    You have some lovely concepts and a nice style going on here. However I would recommend you look more at form and just concentrate on line drawing for now. Try out building objects considering their perspective and from.

    Once you have a good understanding of perspective, you can draw using these construction methods every time and you should find your drawings come to life almost immediately and even before you've started shading.

    This is quite a good tutorial to really get you thinking in the right mindset.

    This might also be useful. There's lots of resources out there and a lot of them are very valuable. Do find some more of your own, these here I just found very quickly and I know there is even better tutorials out there!

    Hope this helps somewhat, I think the drawing of the ruins shows that you have some natural understandings of form already. It's a good start but always expect to have to make studies to improve

    I think I have a problem. Every time I draw something 'natural' and soft (and not bricks & stones) my drawing looks like a... pencil drawing. I want contrast and sharpness, like here: http://www.mick-armitage.staff.shef....ne/country.jpg

    I know, I know, just have more whites and blacks, but I feel like I'm missing something else, something very obvious. Help?

    Dude, love your pencil stuff! Your environments are pure eye candy. How did you learn? Just pick up a pencil and went at it?

    Also, realy dig your colored stuff at the beginning of your SB

    I just draw. My learning process is mostly:

    -Comparing my work to professional work, finding out the difference
    -Trying to figure out why my drawing A looks better than my drawing B
    -Trying to figure out why I like this professional work so much, is it the composition? the shadows? Why do I think it's very dynamic? What makes it pop out of the screen? Why is that street looks like a real street and mine looks like boxes with windows on the side of the road?
    -After every drawing I look at it, see what I don't like, do a little research and see how others did that part and try to do it right next time. You can see it on my last three works:

    http://imgur.com/1rAk4pD - Damn, too gray, I need more darks.

    http://imgur.com/CgV62cD - Damn, it's to dark... Why does this older work: http://imgur.com/MkqZMsD looks so good to me? It has darks and whites and grays, all in balance

    http://imgur.com/eThnIIj - Finally, got it right! ...But *Pointing out new stuff I find off*
