    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


    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!

    Hello Carro =)
    First of all: it's really cool that you do so many studies! But don't forget the fun stuff! Show us some works you do just for the fun of drawing and creating. That's very important too. Sometimes it even happens that you forget how to do your own stuff if you do to many studies, because doing them is easier in some ways. Try to get a nice balance and don't fear to learn less because you missed some study time. Sometimes we even need to calm to down to get in out head what the practiced before =)
    Someone already linked you to Proko. That's good. If you haven't seen it already watch this one too where he is together with Marshal Vandruff http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVxvFTYz210
    I think this vid has some points that are crucial for you. It's about your lines. The lines in your very fast drawings are better than in the other ones. Really listen to the video and follow the explanations to improve your linework. Work with ghostlines, think some seconds before putting your pencil down. I'm sure that can help you a lot =) Keept it up!

    I know what you mean. But hmm I think I'm afraid. I don't do my own stuff because I don't have enough knowledge. I usually end up with doing fanart if I don't do studies. Yeah, sometimes I think to myself that I missed one day to do studies, that's not good... I should maybe take breaks every now and then.
    Thanks for the video! I will take a look at it

    Jävlar vad många studier! You go girl! Ser bra ut, fortsätt så. Jag håller dock med föregående talare, gör du för många studier och inte så mycket från imagination kan man glömma bort hur det är att göra egna saker. Släpp rädslan och bara kör! Det är lika viktigt att man försöker applicera det man studerar, på sina egna saker, för att se vad man lärt sig och har tagit in. (dålig metafor inc) Om du läser många sidor i en bok till ett prov, men inte pluggar in det eller vad man ska säga, tappar du massor på grund av det. Som sagt, försök repetera det du studerar på egna verk, det kommer göra underverk. Jämför du sedan ditt eget med dina studier, kommer du få reda på exakt vad du behöver träna mer på/vad du kom ihåg!

    Jag beundrar dig som postar så mycket, riktigt riktigt inspirerande!! You go girl!

    Hey Carro!
    Your gesture drawings are amazing and your values are good too! I agree with what Valyavande said and I do understand why you're afraid, because I'm like that too. Try new stuff and even if you end up with a bad drawing don't put yourself down because of it. It'll be easier to see your mistakes this way so you won't make them next time. Keep up the good work and you'll get even better in no time!

    Murderotic: Jag förstår vad ni menar. Men asså, när jag målar förhand kan jag oftast inte få ut något. Det blir bara abstrakt, för att jag inte vill tänka igenom varenda liten sak jag gör. Därför gör jag studier, för att jag lättare ska kunna skapa det jag vill. Jag har heller inte hittat min originalitet än, jag kör mest bara på fanart.
    Men jag undrar då, hur ska jag göra dessa upprepningar ifrån det jag har lärt mig? Ska jag försöka komma ihåg en speciell pose som jag gjorde? Jag förstår grejen, men jag vet inte hur jag ska genomföra det.

    Tack så mycket, jag blir glad nu ^^ Det är motiverande att komma hit och få feedback! Men du ska veta att jag har inte gjort alla dessa på egen hand, jag går på en konstskola just nu. Fast nu när jag tänker på det, så gör jag faktiskt mera studier hemma.

    Savyer: Thank you so much! I will try to show you my own sketches/drawings. They won't be awesome since I'm not good at drawing from my imagination xD
    Thank you again! I can't wait to post some more.

    Jag förstår vad du menar med att du inte "får ut något på papperet". Frustrationen som uppstår när man så vill skapa något på egen hand, men saknar kunskapen. Det gör inget att det bara blir abstrakta saker, bara du skapar på egen hand också och inte bara studier. Also, originalitet är något som tar jättelång tid att hitta hos sig själv, jag tror inte jag har hittat min än precis. Folk säger till mig att det jag gör är "typiskt mig", men jag kan själv inte sätta fingret på vad de menar egentligen. Oroa dig inte över det än originalitet jobbas fram indirekt med studierna.

    Även om ansvaret för att bli grym konstnär ligger hos en själv, så är just konstskola ett sjukt bra verktyg för att hjälpa en på traven! Går också på konstskola, och det är awesome. Bra att du gör studier på egen hand också! Win-Win! Det är bara att köra Carro!

    Exakt. Så jag vill verkligen göra något åt det. För det är inte så kul när man är bara helt beroende av referenser.
    Och jag gör väl inte bara abstrakta saker, även ansikten... men ja, det är ändå inte så varierat. Men jag ska pröva att ta det lugnt ifrån studierna och bara rita något. Ja, jag kan förstå vad de menar. Vi har alla egentligen en stil redan från början, det är hur vi får till allting. Men samtidigt så letar vi fortfarande.
    Eller hur. Jag stör mig bara på hur lite jag får saker gjort där. Och ändå studerar jag på heltid.
    Vilken går du på? :3

    Hey thanks for visiting my SB! So thought I'd swing by and have a look.

    I don't know what you're talking about. You look awfully motivated already to me! So many awesome studies. Perspective, gestures, skulls. I especially like the skulls you've got going on. I feel I lack heavily there in my understanding so I may follow suit.

    Anyways. I hiighly agree with Valya. Give yourself some slack! I know how you feel when you want to improve really badly and any missed day of study feels like your wasting valuable time. But rest is essential for the brain's optimum performance. And that rest includes taking a break from studies and doing something fun. Do the types of drawings that you enjoy the most and I can bet you almost anything, if you're doing those studies right, you'll see that newly acquired knowledge flow into your imagination stuff effortlessly.

    Good luck to you! You are already going full steam ahead! Keep going!

    Hey, good stuff! I think your drawings are progressively, slowly but surely, getting a little less unsure and scribbly-lined. That is the key! Keep up the great practice!!

    Niquey: Yes but I still think that these aren't enough xD Thank you, I'm going through the skeleton very slowly
    Yeah, I have actually been missing drawing more freely. So I took things more easily last week. And when I drew the things I wanted to, I felt so satisfied.
    But that's the thing I'm worried about. I don't know if I'm studying right. So I'm not sure if I will see this improvement in my drawings.
    How can I practice the things I have learned? The gestures for example, should I try to repeat the poses I have done?
    Thank you so much! Good luck to you too!

    the-muddy: That sounds good ^^ I would love to have more confident and clean lines. I think it looks so pretty. Thank you so much!

    I know what you mean. But hmm I think I'm afraid. I don't do my own stuff because I don't have enough knowledge. I usually end up with doing fanart if I don't do studies. Yeah, sometimes I think to myself that I missed one day to do studies, that's not good... I should maybe take breaks every now and then.
    I know exactly how you feel, but you should just do it anyway. Targeted studying/improvement is extremely important of course, but I'd say that having fun with art is just as important. Doing something fun doesn't mean you can't learn from it either, so don't worry too much about it

    also

    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.
    It's good that you are focusing and know what you want to do but I think it might be important to point out that even when you get a lot better you will still never be completely satisfied with your work. I'm a lot better now than I was 5 years ago, but I still mostly just see flaws in my own work :p it's kind of a curse artists just have to deal with
