    n00b to Super Saiyan Training

    Hey there guys.
    I'm a student artist from India, just turned 18 and am going to graduate from highschool really soon.
    I started drawing very recently, haha.
    Truth be told, my school didn't offer Arts courses of any sort, from childhood to teenagehood, and as such I had never been exposed to the reality of the Art World.


    I did know people made videogames but never knew 'Artists' were behind those awesome pieces. Never even knew things such as a career in Art was even a reality.

    Secondly, Sinix (youtube.com/SinixDesign) is the reason I picked up the pencil and went back to drawing again and again.

    But unlike him, I don't intend to be a hobbyist, I intend to become a full fledged pro who is making a living off of art. I don't have any responsibilities such as maintaining a family nor any engagements (no plans of marrying - Bachelor4Life) so no worries.

    I'll be attending Art School soon as soon as I finish 12th grade here in India (my finals are in November 2014)
    There's also one good Art School in India which has a well blended mix of Fine Art and Commercial Art courses. They stress on traditional Art and then transition to Digital. Most Art Schools in the country just teach software instead of Traditional Art so yeah. These guys do a good job of having a well balanced curriculum. (Opened up 4 years ago and they're really good!) [ www.aanda.co.in ]


    Alright, enough talk, time to show my sketches
    Please do tell me if I'm going the right way. (Hope you read what I wrote so far instead of ignoring and scrolling down xD)
    I'll be posting as much as I can, possibly few times a week or on weekends. So bear with me a bit.
    I know the title of the sketchbook sounds a bit too cocky but it's just something that'll motivate me to keep having fun and keep pushing my lines to better limits and venture more in the art world.

    hey dude good job so far i'm a beginner too so i cant offer much advice but i would suggest picking up a book on anatomy it has helped me a lot so far just from reading and copying muscle structure. Keep drawing and posting man can't wait to see more of your work.

    Howsit man

    I to am a beginner in art, and even though I may not have much to give perhaps this small piece of advise will help...

    So far I have found that it is better to draw still lifes and from reference photos... This helps you learn the Light and form, as well as makes it easier to progress, as you are not drawing off of mind the object is right infront of you.

    Well yea I may be wrong but this is how I have found helps... Good luck mate and I hope that you have fun while learning ^^

    Can't wait to apply it with real life observational drawings

    I don't know why my perspective pages went poof when I used the attachment manager but I'll post em pretty soon. Guess I'll work on still lifes and figures and observational drawing for sometime since skipping the basics is very very bad lol. Thanks for checking out my sketchbook thread.

    Alrighty
    Here's my first still life drawing for real this time
    20 Phones

    Seems boring I know, but I'll start spicing up my stuff soon as I get better and keep pushing farther

    Adjusted the contrast a bit and grayed out the image a bit since the lines were pretty light and the scanner made them look almost invisible lol.
    Really had fun doing this. I love the feels we get when doing observational drawing, that sense where you can grab and eat up the form. lol XD

    Anyway, time for more still lifes.

    30 Spoons
    Still Life yet again but this time, it's gesture drawing
    I think I'm getting the grip of this. Just need to consciously draw fewer lines and add in more flow without making a mess next time. Oh well, will get it with regular practice hopefully

    That's looking great! ^^
    The shapes look good, so maybe you can try shading them in?

    Trying out Linear Block-In technique on some still life stuff
    I guess I'm miserably failing at it
    Won't be satisfied until I get it right

    Advice please, anyone?

    I love playing around with tone for some reason!
    It's like whoosh, whee, dokan and then some special effect and blur and whoa! lol

    *ahem*
    Anyway, *continues study*

    Nice stuff! i really like the fun you're having with learning how to draw, i could use some of that
    The Negative Space Study looks like a nice study to do, came out nicely!
    Maybe some more live drawing, and focus some on shading. And maybe not to much from imagination, but you already know that
    Keep at it! its going great!

    The pencil holders and the ball are the drawings where you are showing volume the best, and that is because you are working on your shading. Take a few things from around the house and put them on a table by a window and draw them as you see them.

    Yup, will do it pretty soon.
    Right now I'm trying to get used to negative space from still life. Will post them pretty soon
    Will move into volume and shading bit by bit one step at a time
    As for the glass holder thing. (I was extra careful with that since I was doing it on A3 paper)

    Sadly I don't have a lamp or something to cast shadows really well at home. So the lighting looks very uniform on most objects in my room (Which makes the shading harder but I'll still keep trying)

    The Negative Space Study looks like a nice study to do, came out nicely!
    Maybe some more live drawing, and focus some on shading. And maybe not to much from imagination, but you already know that
    Keep at it! its going great!

    Thanks
    Yeah lol. I draw too much from imagination. Should put a little bit of tab on it and focus more on life drawing. I'll start doing more still lifes from now on
    Never thought observational drawing could be this fun once you slowly start getting used to it bit by bit

    I like the last one the most. Are you studying perspective books too or mostly loomis books? Which loomis books?

    @Littlebit:
    For Perspective, I studied from Alphonso Dunn's videos at first to be able to understand freehand perspective. (From his Youtube Channel. There are 2-3 videos on perspective in his Fundamentals/Basics playlist in his channel)

    From there I moved onto the Perspective 101 exercises in the CA Forums

    Alright here's another Negative Space Study
    But this one is a still life from real life.

    It's basically an 'All-Out' (some mosquito exterminator lol), 2 action figures of Spongebob Squarepants which I got from a Dominos Kids Joy box meal (lol) and a Nintendo DS all set up in front of a bedsheet/cover. I sleep on the floor so yeah. xD

    Cool, how much time per day / week are you spending drawing now? I now you were interested in forming study groups. Feel free to drop by my sketchbook to see my early level, but I am dedicated to learn.
