I DON'T WANT COMPLIMENTS I WANT CRITIQUE PLEASE!!! I NEED IT ;D
BLAH BLAH BLAH ABOUT ME BLAH BLAH ( beneath )
Let's get to drawing...
Hello there... I created this sketchbook because I am a 22 year old that isn't that great at art, but is going to improve.
I began drawing awhile ago...However I didn't begin studying anything until this year forrrrr stupid reasons
( meaning references/studies, pretty much all imagination up until this point) so I'm new to even the basics and am lacking fundamentals
I am self-taught, with the exception of you guys here now
My aim is to be at concept artist or illustrator level in 2 more years.
I don't know for sure what I want to do...but wish to build the fundamental skills necessary for one of the two fields
I am really slow at learning I think, but I will work harder to compensate,
putting much into this sketchbook to improve improve improve improve. However I am quite busy, but I will try :"(.
I hope to be part of the community here and will always appreciate feedback/ critiques.
Don't be soft with me because I can take harsh criticism( as long as it has helpful intentions ). I need as much help as I can possibly get. Thanks for taking the time to look at my sketchbook!
Mindinart: Thanks for compliment! I want to push towards bettering myself at art overall ( color, value, depth, anatomy, composition, structure, etc ). I think I'm not good enough as is and I am completely clueless about art. So I will practice hard to...past "professional" level. I'll post a WIP tomorrow. For sure
Here's some stuff. Fast fast gesture postures, planar charcoal, pastal + inkwash
Much to improve
I try color studies from life for first time. SO much better than photo!
Still suck at this though
( banana was my first one! It's worse than the others )
Hey, thank you very much for the comment. And cool to see the WIPs, the second banana in post #6, definetly the 100% opacity worked on that one. Can't say much more than I'm very happy to see your progress.
Update, worked more on the imagined environment... I'm not liking it :I
I'm planning on fixing the composition.
This was unref'd. I actually am very proud of myself because I was able to draw a nose that didn't look completely like a weiner. But also sad, this made me realize how much errors I have and need to improve on.
Some gesture and tried contour today. Reached 77
Did arm practices... and then I forgot everything I learned...yayyy
Some block in values

lot of energy here ! may good things here !
actually nothing to crit since you're doing good
for the anatomy learning, doesn't matter if you forget some parts. be sure do many studies of each part to stick the most important things in your mind, then you can always get back to refs when illustrating
MOST IMPORTANT: keep up ! (even if you have some breaks)
