    @umbravita I agree! It just comes natural because im afraid of solid lines. I'll try my best but i do it without even trying, i just etch in the shapes I want =/

    Nusku, as someone learning this as well, the only way you will find confidence in your linework is to make those long strokes. You will find that as you keep going the routine gets better and better, and your confidence in drawing long solid lines also gets better. Try some of the silhouette drawings on posemaniacs.com. They have some stuff there to help you gain confidence and see the big shapes. Keep it up, you'll get there!

    So i tried "constructing" this Gatorade bottle, I am very happy with the outcome. It would have been disproportional if I didn't use sqaures and stuffs xD

    WOOH!

    Heya, nice bottle! The rendering came out pretty well, but the construction still needs work. The bottle feels flat due to the way you drew the ellipses around the bottle. You should take a look at this tutorial here. Try drawing cylinders in all sorts of perspective to really grasp how the bottle looks. It might help you out. Keep going! =)

    Sketchbook -- Any feedback helps!

    The lines in your latest gestures look much more confident! Keep it up, it is a big improvement on the unsteady lines.

    Hands are a good choice to study, your drawings show you are learning about some of the important curves for the arch of the palm and the big of the hand. Try to think more about the proportions and form; the finger and thumb lengths are a bit inconsistent, and some of your views look a little flat. Try drawing your own hands from life - consider where the knuckles line up in relation to each other, how wide/long the palm and finger groups are, how the thumb lines up relative to the forefinger. Another exercise that helps with form is to break down the hand you see into a gesture, and then build it out of cylinders and cubes.

    Whilst drawing the hand from life is by far the best option, Posemaniac's Hands for Drawing tool is also helpful for getting some reference of angles you can't see yourself. It isn't a perfect model, so try to observe as much as you can.

    The hands are looking good, you can see the improvement. Keep going the way that you are, drawing from life, looking at construction etc. I’m looking forward to seeing your progress!

    Your hands are really kicking up a notch! The volume of work is starting to pay off. It is good to see a mixture of theory work with the breakdown in post 41, and all these life drawings you are producing. They cover a nice mixture of different poses, as well as showing that you are thinking about the anatomy as you are working. The value studies in particular seem to be helping to get the volume across; in post 41 and 44's the shadows show nicely where the surface of the hand changes direction.

    Don't get down on yourself man you're doing well. The hands are getting better. It might be beneficial to do some drawings of skeletal hands to get an idea of the structure but idk *shrug

    Thank you! I am taking this very seriously. Even after I upload my images, I sometimes catch something that looks "off" and try to fix it in the next drawing. I am studying every day for many hours! You and everyone's feedback is VERY important to me. It truly inspires me to keep going!

    Thanks!! I'm trying. I was just feeling down because I look up and I see all these amazing artists and look around for people around my level and I'm the only one down here. Could be demotivating sometimes. But every time someone comments on my sketchbook inspires me and makes me feel better!


    Thank you all for being amazing.
