    NSFW- Swenglish sketchbook

    Critique, tips, thoughts etc more than welcome! I want to improve!
    - added thumbnail

    Hello everyone.
    I am not going to bore all of you with my boring story about how I've ALWAYS wanted to be an artist but lacked the confidence and belief in myself.
    Finally, after turning 20 and the only experience of art being stick figures from when I was like twelve, and I do really mean ONLY. ( It seems like I am not alone when it comes to starting out '' late '' ) I decided that heck, I've made too many wrong turns already in my life because of other people and my disbelief in myself and my ability. I am going to do something for myself for once, and give it my all.

    My dream is to one day become a concept artists for video games, movies, tv-series, books heck you name it! I want to create characters and environments that makes you feel and go *Wow, I wonder who came up with that!*. There are so many people that I look up to and follow and I want a place in this world of wonder and awesome damn it! I truly hate myself for NOT doing what I wanted to do from the get go...

    Anyways, I started out about 1 - 1½ months ago and it's difficult. I have NO idea what to focus on in the beginning. All that I've been doing up to this point is do some work from my imagination which in some cases, turns out ok ( Or so I want to believe... I suck and I know it xD, but hell... At least it doesn't make your eyes bleed )and 30 - 60 seconds gesture sketches. I don't really know where to go and what to do. From what I've heard, the most important thing is to UNDERSTAND how things work, and the science behind it. And NOT to just copy, and build muscle memory... Being restricted because of inexperience and NOT being able to properly draw stuff from imagination sucks xP /sad face.

    :: Includes first try in photoshop which was..... Difficult. Damn tablet feels horribly inaccurate ::

    First attempt on skeleton for the head, hand and foot. I don't want to spend too much time on shading yet.
    Moving over to digital now to make an attempt of drawing the skull again and then paint it , sorry for using my cellphone. I am not at home atm, and our scanner makes lines disappear <.<....

    Btw... I am aware of my horrible hand writing lol, I have gotten soooo much crap from teachers for my hand writing throughout the years. I can't really do anything about it, it's just how I write ( very quickly ). And I don't want to spend time on trying to write properly on my sketches hehe....

    I have had a horrid headache the entire day :/, don't feel like I can concentrate so I am going to go and rest a little before I try to continue.
    I want to do this properly right from the get go, so I decided that I am going to be focusing on more basic stuff like perspective and trying to break down anatomy into shapes etc.

    All I could take for today on the computer... Being sick sucks >.<. Want to build up some accuracy on my tablet.
    Will continue to draw on paper in bed tho, but I don't want to spam too much with gesture drawings hehe.

    Did 9 pages of ellipses, waves, arcs and lines today lol. Seems to be a great exercise to build hand-eye coordination . Been watching videos from FZDschool and CGworkshop on youtube too.

    hello there, thanks for dropping by and your helpfull comment.

    I also believe it`s true that fundamentals and constructiob will definately give your drawing skills a more solid look. Even though sometimes it can become a boring drill, once you got this toolset imprinted in your mind i think it`s some real crazy stuff! Keep practicing this kind of stuff alot and you will see that your lines will become more solid. Maybe try to use less strokes and keep drawing trough the form.

    Cheers

    Conceptart.org is a double edge sword. Sometimes you go '' O.o.... How is it even humanly possibly to be that good!? '', and other times you get inspired by all of the amazing artists on here.
    All in due time I guess ^^.

    If you feel lost, keep going! You're doing the right stuff. I wish I was this on track when I first took up drawing regularly.
