    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.

    So today I decided to try something a bit different with my linear still life. For the majority of my previous ones, I have done a quick gestural underdrawing in colored pencil that I then basically ignore as I perform a contour drawing--following the outline of the objects and hoping my drawing won't become too far off. I wanted to try expirementing with the linear block-in technique, which I've pretty much neglected so far, so I used it to essentially draw the majority of the scene in normal graphite, then made it faint with my kneaded eraser and used it as a guideline for my actual, finished (we'll call it that) drawing. The result is an extremely misproportioned depiction of life. Woo hoo! But really, I hope to work with this technique a bit more and see if I can't find a decent way to involve it in my work flow for these linear still lifes. Sorry for the rambling!

    Here is the piece with some (or maybe alot) of notes:

    Great work ethic. You're going to be improving very quickly at this rate, especially since you are willing to look at your work with a critical eye. I would suggest varying your subject matter a bit; try some figures and landscapes from reference. That way, you can apply what you are learning in order to solve different sets of problems. It will really help solidify those concepts and skills.

    I'll definitely keep an eye on your progress, I'm looking forward to seeing more. Keep up the good work!

    This sketchbook is amazing considering you are only 13! I'm talking about your self criticism and keeping notes about your drawings. Also the way you are working professionally on improving. Reminds me when I was already working as a programmer when I was also 13 (of course since programming requires only analytical/logical skills it is faster to grasp, while drawing requires analytical/logical/manual/and more?).

    To be really honest, I'm 27 and I'm jealous about how you can already provide self criticism on your art, and when you draw next you improved your previous piexe.. I still don't have the knowledge/eyes/technic for that on my drawings.

    Keep going like this and you surely will be a professional when you reach 18-19!

    @ The Colorado Kid: Thanks! I do admit that it is rather mundane to mainly do these linear still lifes, and I definitely plan to branch out in the not too distant future. However, I set myself the goal of drawing 100 of these some time ago (haha, nice going ), and I am stubbornly determined to accomplish it at the moment. I totally agree with your suggestion though!

    @ Maquiavelli: Thank you so much for your encouragement! I've dabbled with programming in the past too, but I never really got off the ground with it, but apparently you did, so you've one-upped me in that respect. Anyway, don't beat yourself up! The very fact that you joined this site and started a sketchbook is a step in the right direction! Keep drawing! I would love to see your progress as well!

    So here's my work for today, for which I utilized the same technique described in my last post involving the linear block-in:

    @ Kaioken20XGokuA: Haha! Bring it on!

    Today I finished another still life with the aforementioned technique as well as some form doodling, this time involving the draw-through technique. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a very good scan of the latter.

    You are drawing forms like crazy x)
    You're already developing a huge library of shapes by altering forms and stuff I guess.
    I did some still lifes too but the linear block in technique is giving me some issues. Usually plain contour drawings give me the ease along with vertical measuring but I guess you're pulling it off pretty well

    dragning, good to see you're trying new techniques! About block-in: it was only after starting my journey here at CA that I realized how helpful it is (for me at least). I notice that I'm getting to the "finished" sketch faster than when I used to jump direct into the final lines. Also I'm able to draw a better, confident line.
    Keep going and never stops!!
