    Another rushed attempt at measuring proportions before drawing:

    Since the proportional version of visual measuring that Proko taught was giving me trouble, I decided to try implementing the sight-size method for my underdrawing, only I used a one-to-two ratio instead of a one-to-one, meaning I doubled my measurements each time so that my drawing would turn out double the size of what I saw, at least in theory. Anyway, I absolutely messed up the proportions even worse than before. Also, at some point during the drawing, I knocked over the items, and couldn't get the exact position that they started in. (Note to self: Do not put objects you intend to draw in precarious positions.) Ah well, I guess this is just one of my off days.

    So here is the unfortunate result result: *cringes*

    The result's not that bad you know. You shouldn't be overcritical when you're learning or else you're cringe every minute thinking how to avoid mistakes than actually drawing. After all, mistakes help us learn, right?

    And regarding the proportion blow-up, it works best with the visual measuring technique. Eyeballing it and doubling the measurements might not be enough I think. And do you draw in rough forms and then cleanup or do you directly do the observational sketches just via contour drawings and proportion mapping?

    Hey, don't put yourself down so much, it's not that bad at all!

    On that note, have you tried plumb line drawing? It's quite similar to sycra's technique, except you use a string with a weight attached to it instead of a pencil to measure. It might be worth a try!
    My CA sketchbook- Please help with some critique!

    @ minifong: Thanks! The stuff in your sketchbook is awesome!

    @ Kaioken20XGoku: You're right...I should ease up on myself some. As for your question, I'm not quite sure what you mean by "proportion measuring", but it sounds more like what I begin with. Basically, for these last couple, I've been using proportions and measurements to establish "landmarks" of the still life drawing, that I then use for a light, rough block-in of the basic shapes. I end with a contour line drawing. However, I'm interested as to your opinions about the ideal process for these type of pieces as well.

    @Waze: I actually have heard of plumb line drawing in the aforementioned video by Proko, but I didn't feel like finding a string and attaching a weight. Thinking about it now though, I should try it out! Thanks for the tip!

    Some form doodling I finished today:

    For this one, I sort of combined the linear block-in with the drawing measuring techniques Proko describes in his video for the underdrawing, and then used the contour drawing technique for the final lines.

    Good job! Your perseverance is great, and it will pay off. I'm excited to see your work once you've finished all these still life studies. Keep on truckin'.

    Dang, you've been doing a lot of still lifes! I can already see an improvement in the way you render detail,I really like the way you draw forks too. The grittiness definitely works. Like others have already mentioned, you might wanna try some other stuff too, just to keep it fun for yourself. Keep up the good work!

    @ The Colorado Kid: Thanks! I am excited to see my work when this is finished as well!

    @ felix_bambaboy: You too(pertaining to the "keeping up the good work" part)! That's cool to hear that you can see improvement! Hopefully that will extend to other areas of the drawing, not just the details. Thanks so much!

    The proportions on this one were pretty far off from reality, but I sort of ignored that fact and rushed into the final lines instead of correcting the problem areas. From now on (or at least for now), I want to work more on getting a fairly correct underdrawing with these drawing measuring techniques before transitioning into the details.

    I feel like I'm just echoing what's already been said, but it's fantastic that you've been so consistent in your practice and gotten this good at thirteen. Keep going with this, you're doing great. Again, like others have already said, you might want to try drawing something else just to keep yourself from getting bored (anatomy, figure drawing, pets, cartoons, etc.) But if you're happy with what you're doing, then ignore this.

    @ Pignog: Thanks for the compliment and advice! Actually, I'm 14 now (my birthday was last month). Nonetheless, thanks again and welcome to CA!

    My underdrawing still wasn't great for this one, but hopefully it was a step in the direction of more accurate proportions and placement.
