    Noah's Sketchbook

    Edit
    I'm an 18 year old college student looking to make it as an illustrator. Got about 4 years drawing experience, so I probably got about a good 20 years before I can become professional . At first I planned on becoming an engineer, but now I decided to pursue my passion. Feedback is always welcomed and excuses are never tolerated. Cheers.

    Here's a couple of value studies. I'm new to using colors so I'm trying to get the hang of the different tones and colors

    Still struggling on my digital painting skills so I did a value study to try and get a cleaner transition of values without the airbrush.

    Here's a couple face drawing. The face is probably my weakest point on the body so I probably should do a lot more sketches

    Hi Noah,

    This might be a tired and much repeated suggestion, but I always refer beginning artists to Andrew Loomis books (drawing the head and hands & figure drawing). Both books are really helpful to get you started on sketching, especially if you struggle with faces and the human figure overall. The other suggestion is to draw as much as you can from life. If your taking drawing classes, perhaps there's a life drawing session you can join, even if you're not in school, there are many groups in various cities that participate in planned life drawing sessions. Otherwise draw in cafes, at home, at a park, etc. It's cool that you are exploring digital art as well. You're on the right track with the sketchbook here and keep posting and more feedback you'll get. Good luck!

    Hey yeticatcher, thanks for the advice. I don't draw nearly enough from life and it shows in my drawings. So I'll try and get a couple of still life drawings before the end of the day. But until then I got a couple of quick sketches of me messing around with some texture brushes on sketchbook pro.

    It's a little late for me to upload my still life, but I just got off of work and dammit I promised a still life so here it is. I'm actually really proud how this came out which is saying a lot(low self-esteem). I was supposed to render the camera but the metalic surface reflected my table making a nasty combination of color and grey tones that I just couldn't understand. But the apple was pretty simple to figure out. So cheers

    When you do still life studies, do not neglect the background ! It's very important ! And try to draw heads and human figures on a larger scale.
    Good luck !

    Hey, it's been a while since my last post. Work hasn't left me that much time to upload. Since I have less time I'm going to have to get a lot more serious about drawing so I'm going to upload everyday and I'm creating a new drawing schedule.
    Monday:Figure/gesture drawing
    Tuesday: Still life drawings
    Wednesday: Perspective
    Thursday: Design/studies
    Friday: Finished pieceS
    Saturday: Watercolors
    Sunday: Anatomy
    Hopefully with this schedule I will see some improvements with my drawings. And since today's Monday here's a couple of gesture drawings. First 2 are 2 minute sketches and last 2 are 30 second sketches. And as always critiques and advice is appreciated.

    Here's a quick still life, a little late but at least it's done. I was doing another still life and lost track of time. Hopefully I can finish that still life before the end of the day.

    Attachment 1813487I may have made a mistake thinking that uploading everyday would help me improve. It seems that now I'm more worried about getting a drawing done so it can be uploaded instead of actually understanding the concepts. Also not all my drawings are worth an upload; some are just me experimenting and others are just too personal. So I'm just going to upload what I can when I can.
    Here's my progress on the still life I was working on. There was a banana in it but for some reason I was having troubles with the yellow colors and it's shadows. So I may need to dedicate some time on drawing yellow things. But until then here's my half-assed still life. Cheers

    Been about a year since my last update. Hopefully it shows in my drawings. Here are some recent face and leg sketches. Also I included a construction exercise. Cups aren't the hardest thing to draw
