    SeriousMalzīs Sketchbook-My way of improving!

    Hello and welcome everybody, nice to meet you!

    I'm an 18 year old male who hasnīt touched a pencil since ..well, I registered.. I will change that now !
    I want to be a professional someday, but I know that I still have a long road ahead of me.
    My main reasons for this thread is to see my progress and to motivate me, as well as getting critiques.

    I do paint "digitally" since three days now.
    My goal is to become better than Iīm at the moment!

    Hey SeriousMalz!

    Glad to see you're working hard! I too am on a journey to be a better artist! Have you ever tried reading the book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain?" I am working through it right now and it's doing wonders for me! I think it's a great first step, as it can help you to get more out of doing figures, anatomy, or other more in-depth studies. The book is all about how to get into the right mindset to draw and ways of perceiving the world as an artist. I just thought based on your work that it could be good for where you are! Keep practicing, and don't forget to do some longer timed drawings too! Cheers!

    Hi Hendecagoner!

    Thank you for the suggestion Hendecagoner. Your seem to be also working quite hard. I actually stumbled on the book "drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" and others while looking for good art books for beginners on Amazon. I wasnīt sure if I should buy it at that time. Maybe I will buy it now, while wachting you getting better!

    Back to drawing: Iīll update my SB in the next four days. I will probably post some sketches then, and explain what I will draw and where I will start
    At the moment, I mostly draw on paper. I am also looking at online tutorials and thinking about what I want to draw and where to start, to make positive changes. I want to be able to draw vehicles, enviroments as well as characters in the future!

    Hello, everyone! Here is my contribution for today! I think I will keep on doing humans, enviroments and sometimes animals/creatures regulary.
    I have to say, that I learned quite a lot about PS, for example that blending with the smush tool is not a good idea...

    Thanks for stopping bye my SB. My advice is the same as the guy above me. Check out Ctrlpaint.com .. Instead of using lots of strokes for one line, try giving one confident stroke, it is more pleasant too look at. Keep doing them studies!
