    Burri's Sketches

    First thing I've ever put up. Let's see how this goes. These are all from the past, and believe it or not, the guy at the bottom was drawn first. Maybe a year before the other two. This is mostly due to my time on Deviantart (please, PLEASE don't look it up, I'll explain later), but I'll just cover that in an introduction and a plea for help from better artists. For now, I still have no clue about all this formatting stuff, and I need to collect my thoughts. Just for the basics, I came here through an article on the infamous "Snapesnogger", and was genuinely shocked by the change in atmosphere from deviantart. People gave criticism. People were professional. I realized how much I let my drawing ability deteriorate to pander to fandoms, and that I've given up on drawing any more professionally. I make it sound like rehab, and I guess it is in a way. XD I hope I'm still welcomed in this community. The first one's just a personal creature I've made that I want to learn how to draw more realistically.

    I guess maybe I'll just put my thoughts here, and now instead. I don't know anywhere
    So, all you have now is the guy, the first thing I put on DA. It wasn't taken very well. Very slowly, I turned more and more to match DA's tastes, in search of praise and "favorites". This is basically what happened.

    Sorry I'm bad with the sizing stuff.
    But yeah. I hope I can get better, and keep posting, and learn to draw the realistic mythological drawings I've always wanted to, and maybe someday become an inspirational success story. I might be thinking too big on the last one, though!

    Well, bye for now!

    P.S. I know you can't critique something that's not even satisfactory level, so can people suggest somethings to begin drawing again? I'm practicing faces again, like Winston Churchill.

    Practising faces is certainly not a bad idea, I'd also recommend practising figure drawing.

    Cont. Etc.

    Oh, thanks for the suggestion, though I'm not sure what you mean by figures? I guessed people, so drew a few! Really though, thank you!
    Ack, It's been two years, and need to scan each one in, and need to invest in either a camera or a sketchbook or some charcoal, but enough excuses.

    A bit of a collaboration with my friend though. Probably should show it BEFORE she put the eyes.

    Should post more often. Maybe during summer.

    Might be jumping too far. Tried some digital.

    I've neglected this far too long.

    Progress so far on the sketch and an attempt to recreate a cartoony environment with proper perspective and framing.
    Any glaring issues so far?
