    @ springofsea: Thanks! Line quality definitely seems to add a 3D effect to the drawings. I'll have to expirement with it more. Comic studies should be fun!

    @ Paladis: Thank you for the compliment, although I am really not that mature (what can I say, I am 13), but I now know hardwork is vital--now I need to work on applying that knowledge.

    @ Aya-kun: The perspective grid doesn't seem to show. Perhaps it is a broken link? Anyway, these life drawings were supposed to be an exercise in observational drawing, as described in Ctrl+Paint's Simple Still Life video, although apparently I can't even manage that. Perhaps I should simply scrap the idea to do 100 and work on perspective more. I'm not sure. About ellipses, I'm aware of how to construct them. I've actually worked through Norling's Perspective Made Easy before and I have How to Draw by Scott Robertson lying around, which I plan to study this summer.


    A workseet from Ctrl+Paint on the Horizon Line. Either Matt Kohr was rather off in his drawing, or I am absolutely unable to locate the horizon line and/or vanishing points accurately.

    A linear still life, with verticals printed on rather than drawn with colored pencil.

    Hey dragning, good stuff here, keep practicing, you're only 13 yo, surely has a great future ahead. I have to check this CTRL+PAINT website you all talk about, looks like a good one for beginners, which is my case

    @ elvistking: Thanks! We're both in the same boat as far as being beginners, but hopefully someday we'll progress to become more than that. Keep practicing as well!

    Some form manipulations.

    I decided to construct a checkerboard in 2 point perspective reminiscent of the one in Norling's Perspective Made Easy.

    Finally, here are the linear still lifes for the day. I chose not to mess with line quality on the second one for the sake of time.

    Curious, what is all the writing, I can't read it, are they notes or thoughts? I can't wait to see your work at 19-20, you're going to be spectacular if you keep this up!

    At 13 years old I could barely do semi straight lines. Impressive. Like your sense of perspective and form.

    Yeah, with correct verticals your studies look much much better, good work!

    Btw, if you don't mind me asking, what is your goal? And what do you like to draw the most? What kind of artist you want to be?

    @ Paladis: Oh, sorry! The cloud of mangled handwriting is a list of differences (issues) I notice when I hold my finished drawing up to the real scene. The goal is to train myself to anaylze my work and look at it with a more objective lens, but perhaps I go a bit overboard? Thanks for the encouragement as well!

    @ PT Abram: Thanks...although, I struggle to do those things still. If you saw the full size image of these drawings, you'd see all the little dips and bends in what are supposed to be straight lines, but why else would I be practicing? Your stuff is great too! I love your understanding of form!

    @ Aya-kun: I'll have to continue to work on those verticals. Your advice has really helped in that respect already though. As for my goal, favorite subject (to draw of course), desired specialization, etc., I don't particulary know. The main thing I desire is to eventually create concept art full-time, whether in an in-house position or as freelancer. However, I'm not quite sure about the other stuff. For so long, I've been focused on doing these exercises and working on the fundamentals, but haven't quite pondered what I am going to apply them to. The real reason, or at least one of them, that brought me to art was the ability to tell stories and build worlds. Whether this includes vehicles, environments, characters, or a mix of all 3 for me, I will have to find out. But for now, I intend to just buckle down and study the fundamentals!

    On to the drawings! Here are two more linear still lifes not including line quality.

    I haven't been able to post for the past week or so due to the CA server being moved, upgraded, etc., so here is what I have been doing, organized by date.

    Today, I watched Sycra's "How to Draw Form" video and took notes, then drew my attempt at flour sacks in addition to the linear still lifes.

    This was the only day I really varied the line thickness on purpose in the linear still lifes.
