    Carro's sketchbook :3

    Hi, you can call me Carro. I'm 19 years old and I have been drawing for my whole life, but I got more serious about my art when I was around 16.
    I joined Deviantart and started to improve a lot faster. But nowadays, it feels like I'm stuck and it's not so easy for me to get new ideas anymore. I think it's because I can't draw from my imagination. I can spend hours on drawings, because I have to correct mistakes all the time.
    Anyway, I want to practice pretty much everything and I really want to improve so I can feel more happy and confident with my art.
    I want to be able to create things from my mind without having to look at references all the time.

    Right now, I'm focusing on anatomy and still life drawings. I don't want to practice many things at the same time, so when I get "good" I will move on to something new, like backgrounds, animals etc.
    I will also only use pencils, markers or pens, since I want to understand values better.

    Rule: I will try to update on every Sunday.

    I hope I won't get lazy...

    Hey Carro,

    Thanks for the comment & critique in my SB. You made a good point, and I'm keeping it in mind while I draw now.

    Anyway, I'm really glad to see that you started your own sketchbook. It sounds like you are motivated and have a good plan--I'm looking forward to seeing your art!

    Gesture drawings and life models (I'm in art school and my teacher wanted me to draw the model with my "wrong hand", so this explains why some of them are really messy)

    Wow it really takes time to scan and upload these. But I guess it's worth it. Thanks for looking!
    (I really have to shrink them next time)

    Hi man!

    First of all why wouldn't you be confident of your drawing?
    There always gonna be people who are better than you, so don't even worry about it.

    I really like your 15sec gesture drawing. When i go under one minute well there is no such thing as proportion anymore :/

    So know to your self portrait. I mean i don't know what you look like but in general the mouth is wider as the nose.
    If you move upwards from the alar wing of the nose this is there the eye starts.
    And for the lighting i would recomend look and this because at most pictures/photos the lighning is not as clear.

    Hope this helps. Since i just starded out don't take my critic too seriouse

    Greetings Knork

    I know that but I still look down on my stuff. I always want to become better.
    Really? They are so messy! Some of them doesn't even look like bodies.

    Thank you, I already know this but I wasn't serious with it. I would have corrected it more if I had spent more time on it.
    Thank you for the video!

    It's okay, really ^^

    Wow, you are prolific! You're going to improve quickly working this much. The gestures are good--keep it up! (And like Knork said, you really have no reason to look down on your stuff.)

    I'm such a novice, but I will try to offer a small critique anyway, because I think they help more than praise. This is my first critique ever, so feel free to ignore it. I think your shapes, and one or two of your still lifes, could be improved with a little more time spent on perspective. A user here wrote a really, really great "Perspective 101" thread: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho....php?p=1485584 I've been working through it this week, and it has helped immensely already. I hope you find it useful too.

    Keep on rockin'!

    I'm trying to practice everyday ^^ I hope I will improve quickly!
    Yeah you're right. I haven't actually studied perspective at all. I think I'm avoiding it because it looks hard. But I will have to try because it's very important to know perspective. I will check it out

    Thank you!

    Bra jobbat! Jag gillar't! Det är bara att köra, just nu är det för tidigt för att säga vad du ska träna mer på specifikt, så det är bara att köra. I denna takten kommer du improvas riktigt snabbt! Tuta och kör!

    Dont be so hard on yourself . We are all at diffrent level and learn at diffrent rates.So dont compare yourself to others...The more you draw the better you will get. The only way to improve is to keep drawing alot ... So far your off to a good start.

    I would spend more time on gestures ...pixielovely has an hour study tool that warms you up by starting with 30 second poses and fradualy gets into longer poses. also quick pose is another great resource for gesture drawing . My gestures improved alot when I started to draw longer poses .It also helps to think as torso as a bean .Proko has alot of good videos on figure drawing on youtube.. Here is his bean video http://youtu.be/0660Fuih7qo . Also studying vilppu has helped me alot with simple shapes .. Just keep drawing and I hope this helps!

    That's true. I will try to think like that ^^
    I use both pixielovely and quickposes but I have never tried to study a pose for one hour. I will try to give myself more time.
    Yes, I have watched that bean video too. I will try to do some beans someday! Thank you so much!
