    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
