    Acu journal

    Hi, I'm 29 years old and never did any serious drawing .
    Now I want to improve, because I really like drawing so I just started with the basic. Betty Edwards and Loomis books.

    comments are welcome.

    Thank you

    I used a photo reference from a movie and then posterize it to reduce the levels. (original on the right, my drawing in the left)

    Really awesome start!

    I would suggest taking a sketchbook with you where ever you go, and anytime you have to wait, take it out and draw everything around you!

    Keep drawing your own hands, it's a really great exercise. If you can, grab a mirror and draw yourself too! (You don't have to show it here, of course, but it helps establish forms.)

    Good work! Keep it up!

    Thank you for the kind words and the suggestions. I did some drawings from life I'll upload some new one soon.

    Here are birds from photo reference (google). I'm happy with the results but I find the shading a little hard to do with the pencil

    Here is my first try doing a digital painting from lineart. I used a character from the Media coloring book, it's an awesome thread so check it out.
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...-Vol-2*/page29
    The lineart is from DavidCousens

    Here is the image and the process, comments are welcome. I'm happy with the overall result (it was my first try) but I'm not sure about the light and shadows in his face.

    Thank you, I surprised myself in how well it turned out.

    Here are some new drawings, I keep reading Loomis I tried some head construction but not very well, also I did some drawing from life: fireplace, furniture and boxes with papers.
    At the end I draw some animals from photo ref, my favourite is the horned beetle

    crits and comments are welcome.

    A skull study from photo ref. Bad proportions, I started with the outline and then was hard to integrate the features. I think I should start with the base structure (big circle, square, etc) and build from it.

    The first row is trying to construct the head with loomis method. The heads looks weird so I need more practice.
    Second and third row is an exercise where you draw any shape and then try to fit a face into it, it's fun..

    Then some loomis body proportions.

    Thanks I try each day to draw from life, an exercise from loomis book, and something fun to keep it interesting.
    Here are a couple of still life, a wood log and a little bell

    I draw 21 heads following the loomis method. I can see improvements in each head, I like n9, 19 and 21.
    I learn that watching a real pic from reference while drawing the structure is better, I did this in 19 and 21 and I can see a really good result.
