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.

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 ^^

More sketches for the day xD
More Sketches Again.
I don't post here regularly even though I draw everyday but yeah.
Gonna try posting everyday here from now on ^___^
Please do comment if you pass by my thread
I just realized I was practicing stupid lol.
Anyway, having a ton of fun learning bit by bit. Gonna make my practice more concentrated from now.
The following sketches are quite hay wired though. I'll work on every subject bit by bit.

Did a couple studies by playing around with the cubes.
Can't wait to apply it with real life observational drawings

Great stuff, I feel that the faces are getting better! Nice idea to use some Loomis for manga btw, I have a friend who draws similar things and I plan to lend him my copy xD
And I can't wait to see those observational drawings!
Will post the still life stuff soon. (working on it)
And here are some skull studies (drawn without refs)
And finally, here are 2 sketches I ended up cleaning up partially by playing around with the pen tool in Photoshop for fun
Here's my first still life drawing for real this time
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.
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
