You should definitely keep this up! I might suggest taking a figure drawing class to help you get those proportions more accurate! I'm guessing you also have an anatomy book. Definitely keep studying those muscles until you have a name to each muscle shape! That's when studying becomes more of a review!
V3T Will do! And thanks for the reply, means alot Eyrich Thanks! Im planning on getting more books as bridgman and perhaps the Michael Hampton one. And thanks for the reply
Just something for the sake of the reply
Two sketches loosely from a plate by bridgman also trying his method in construction and the other one is a some random character from my head.
Sorry for the crappy update, will post more in the coming days!
Soo, My sister was visiting from Iceland this week, didnt get that much time to draw but I feel I could have done more.
Some pencil sketches, a WIP of a painting that I plan on doing but haven't really painted much in photoshop before so this will hopefully be educational aand my try at painting a forearm Anyone got links to good painting tutorials for example skin and basic values?
All help and tips of any kind gladly accepted
(no refs on any of these btw)
man 14 really!!! YOur doing great starting so young!! Just keep pushing and pushing!! The greatest thing to start with to do stuff like im doing is the Scott Roberston Dvd's from gnomon workshop, then his books! They help out alot after the Dvds Keep going!!
JoeThanks! Means alot I will check out those out! V3TThank you My goal is to get out there as soon as Im capable, better work harder haha
So this enormous update gap
Felt like I was never getting things to look 3 Dimensional or values to look even acceptable and feeling really frustrated when painting added to me fighting the software everytime I painted, so I sketched alot without shading
Also during this time I learned the valuable lesson of consistency over intensity so my goal is to draw something every day and keep this sketchbook more updated than it has been the past months/weeks
I forget sometimes the core purpose of starting a sketchbook here being the chance of getting crits and advice instead of holding back until you finally can get something right, but I guess I will have to start posting some paintings and maybe someone can tell me what Im doing so horribly wrong
So the first is a ballpoint sketch I did a while ago and the rest is mostly anatomy practice and some recent sketches where I really took my time and tried to shade it properly
No ref as usual

So my scanner decided that it hates me for a few days, but it seems to be fine now
Two ballpoint sketches, Skeleton one got a tad bigger head than intended other one is a thief sketch
More on the way soon
Edit: The skeleton figure file wont upload now, will check again tomorrow
So been taking some time to learn how to properly paint in Photoshop without it looking like crap.
Some shading exercises and my first try on environments(still loose)
All crits are gladly accepted and if someone knows a good resource for learning painting or just some exercises please comment
Will be painting alot more now that I got something to build on
Great start to a sketchbook : ) Like others have said, if you keep this up and really practise constantly, you'll be amazing by the time you hit 21. So, please do keep it up, cuz I really want to see you get better : )
