    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!

    Hey, cool start, got anything started you'd want to push forward? Would love to see a WIP. You have really good anatomy and value studies, keep it up.

    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 was stalking through sketchbooks on here and saw advice saying try 100% opa and no help w/ pressure sensitivity to help see better color.

    So I'm taking the advice aimed at someone else for me too! It's good advice I think.
    Also I LOVE ADVICE SO FEEL FREE TO SHOOT THAT AT ME.

    I wrote on the drawing too so I wouldn't forget..

    Apples are very difficult wow.

    Boohoohoo
    I was so busy these past couple of days.
    But no solid excuses worth it so I'll think of some kind of punishment for not practicing/ uploading.

    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.

    hi there Pou

    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)

    cheers

    I'm really enjoying this sketchbook. Love your gestures and how messy your pages get(whether it's intentional or not xD)! I comment on something recent, I still have trouble with my contour to be honest. I think it's best to go slow and use one line as my art teacher told me once. But Vilppu said "there are no rules, only tools." Experiment with what works for you, in my opinion, to achieve the results you desire.

    Draw on.

    Zou: Oh oh thank you! It's comments like this even if there isn't much critique,
    it is still very helpful.Very motivational
    I was feeling down because I always forget,
    but I will KEEP IT UPPP YEEEAUUUWUH

    P.S. Also nice username, you have an involuntary connection with me teehee.

    SolitariusScriptor:
    Oh gosh it is completely unintentional.
    I'm just a very messy person ahhah. Needa get that under control.
    Also I was trying the poses without lifting my pen
    Thank you for the advice! I was actually becoming quite discouraged by that.

    Was about to go to sleep but I think I'll stay up instead and try longer timed contour drawings and really think about the lines.

    Okay it looks like I didn't do much today

    Well was super busy today so I'll work much harder tomorrow.
    Also wanted to note that I will not be doing much color anything for the next month.
    Besides studies from life it will be all B&W and anatomy
    .... submitting portfolio in two months.

    So yeah, heads up boring things coming your way for a month.
    Then it will be crazy fun color time

    It would be interesting to see you get into a more comprehensive and focused study, pushing it to the most finished state you possibly can.

    Spurting out 200 gazillion quick gesture studies could be good to gain momentum, but you obviously already got that going for you. And while I think it's great to set up achievable goals for yourself, I also consider it equally important to repeatedly question what it is you hope to acquire from it. Especially if it is a goal that will hog a lot of your time and energy. Halfway through you may have achieved what you first set out for. And then perhaps you could spend the remaining time more effectively?

    Prefer quality before quantity.

    And keep it up!

    Ragnarsson: Haha you're completely right! Not going to even defend myself,
    I have a huge problem with finishing things .
    I will definitely push for total/more completion in the future.

    Also I'm sorry I guess I wasn't quite clear, but I'll give explanation now.
    I'm doing the quick gesture studies to improve my lines ( because they SUCK SO MUCHHHH AHHHH ),
    also theyre blind! So blind contour too.
    But I was trying to do multiple things at once: get a feel for form, improve lines, and speed.
    Though I'll try to keep them cleaner. I've been narrowing down the quantity I'm doing day by day now too.
    I had no idea how bodies moved and they are always so stiff.
    And that is why I was doing so many of them.

    I'll try to have a balance of both quality and quantity
    I've only 26 more days left for me to study anatomy and how the body is.

    Thanks for your comment, I really do appreciate your advice so sosososo much. I'll be heeding it.

    ---

    Some studies of face, hands and other things. An unref'd girl is included somewhere too.
    I wish my scanner wasn't broken...so blurry

    Does anyone know how to make more 3D-ness appearance in a drawing,
    if the photo doesn't naturally have dark values?
    Without messing with contrast or darkening it ( to where it doesn't appear same as photo )

    Kind of bugging me that it appears so flat. Guess I just suck at that right now

    Hi Pou

    srry for long absence

    i'm very happy to see you're updating ! even if you feel down, this will make you better.

    when i think of it, i had always negative feelings wich vanished after i kept working on progressing.

    as a crit:
    some of your non reffed girls has small heads and off neck connections (not the last one)
    u can use oreilly 's structure mostly (the lines harmony) to harmonize your figures

    http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/4305/wbux.jpg

    there is also for the head and the male figure (wich are great when you're drawing from mind)

    actually i don't see problem with your shading exercices, you only have to continue. think of light sources and those things. between your dark brushes strokes and pales grays you must find lay down more mid values
    think of working hard and soft edges, look at master paintings

    personally, i had to tweak a bit my brushes when shading( after begin frustrated by what i see.)


    keep updating mate

    Zou: Oh Zou you are the best!! Thanks so much for your advices and critiques
    Yes I get discouraged so easily, but I'll try to keep what you've said in mind.
    Thanks for the share too! I have such troubles with proportions. I'll give it a try

    Happy Holidays (Thanksgiving) Guys!!!
    I'm thankful for food.
    Spent all day cooking and then gained 4lbs Ahhh.
    I am also thankful for my mother though. hehe ^ ___ ^

    ---

    A nonref'd girl. I think one thing clicked with me for this one...but then everything else didn't,
    I realize her face is pretty but everything else becomes lacking.
    Is it always going to be like this, where one area is better than the rest?

    Okay so I do this traditional sketch then quick greyscale...
    AND IM SO MAD.
    This sketch+Greyscale(total = 20mins) looks so much better than the demon girl (above)
    which I spent 2 whole hours on.

    Why do I have such a huge disconnect when it comes to digital art? :I
    I'll work on art traditionally first and then digitally in the future. Gosh.

    Hey. Nice sketchbook, love the volume of work you are putting. Your drawing is improving fairly quickly which is great. My piece of advice is; try to focus more on rendering. Your edges are slopy, your values need more work as well. If I were you I'd focus for couple weeks purely on still life paintings. Spent many hours to render it properly. Always when you push something as far as possible you get better at it. Keep that in mind. Keep pushing!
