    You're 13 and have the maturity to know that practice is important. Your contour and negative space drawings as well as your perspective show that you're quite adept. Keep it up

    @Bakari G: Thanks for the encouragement! I was thinking I might be alone here. About practice -- if there is anything I have learned in the beginning of my artistic journey, it is that practice is CRUCIAL! I would definitely like to be practicing more though.

    Anyway, here are some basic form manipulations, hands, and a linear still life.

    More forms and line art still lifes. By the way, the writing in the upper left corner is a list of SOME (not nessacarily all) of the mistakes I noticed about the drawing(incorrect proportions, placement, etc.) to train me to anaylze my drawing.

    Unfortunately, it's been another rather unproductive day for me. But hey, at least I drew something.

    I've noticed that I seem to have trouble with the cross contours for the spherical/round shapes in these form doodles I've been doing (not sure which way they should bend, how they should follow the form, etc.). Hopefully I'll sort them out eventually.

    Some linear still lifes, served with a side of steaming mistakes.

    I like how you analyze your work, it shows that you're trying to understand. Have you ever tried using charcoal for your still lifes? It can block in values quite easily for the amount of pressure you put on it. Also for drawing verticals and horizontals, a T-square would help if you're having trouble judging angles.

    @ Bakari G: Thanks! Sometimes, I feel like listing out the errors is arduous, but hopefully it is worth it!

    Regarding charcoal, I have used it in the past, but that was a long time ago and unrelated to still lifes. I am currently working on potraying the shapes and forms with line, but when I get to value, I will definitely have to try charcoal.

    The suggestion about the T-square is interesting as well. I've considered getting them for perspective, but not nessacarily for still life drawing.

    Anyway, here are some spherical form manipulations, since I seem to struggle with those. The fact that this is all I have to post today really shows I NEED TO DRAW MORE!

    I really like your form manipulation thingies, it shows a conceptual understanding of line and form that can be applied to a lot of different things. It actually kind of reminds me of things I'm trying to achieve with my figure drawings. Keep it up!

    Edit: Wait 13 years old?! Its amazing you're already decided on your aspirations and and practicing hard. Good stuff. I'm 24 btw :p

    @ felix_bambaboy: Thank you so much for your reply! Now that I think about it, I can see the similarities between the form manipulations and some of your figure drawings that I have seen, although clearly you've spent a considerable amount of time refining your approach!

    Regarding my age and practicing hard towards my aspirations, I've definitely decided on my aspirations, but I haven't been practicing nearly as hard as I should be. But hey, that's one reason I joined this place.

    Anyway, more spherical form manipulations. (You probably could have predicted that. )

    More spherical forms. For some reason the scanner is working as well as it has been. Hopefully this isn't permanent.

    Unfortunately, I tried to watch the next video in the perspective thread I've been working through and it wouldn't work, even after I spent a while troubleshooting. As a result, I'm not sure that I will continue with the class (I probably won't), but I will persist in my study of perspective of course!

    Here's some form doodling and more linear still lifes. I really need to get cooking if I'm going to reach 100 of these anytime soon. The scanner was acting up again. Ugh!
