    Carla's sketch book - Feedback is welcomed

    - Just updating thumbnail

    Hi All

    Just making a sketch to track my life drawing progress and hopefully join in some discussions about life drawing and drawing. I really hope I can get better at this.

    I studied 2d animation at Sheridan College way back in the day. Life drawing was part of the course. I loved it and after starting work within the 3d games industry I still went to life drawing after work several times a week. Then I moved to Europe and I stopped. It's been about 7 years since I last went to a life drawing class. Just started again this year in April. Trying to fix my messy line syndrome.
    Anyway enough talk here are some drawings.

    a selection of tonights drawings. Didn't have a class so they are from photos and video. Started off with some crappy 1 minute gestures and then some longer ones. Really trying to work on the line quality but can't seem to keep the drawings tidy. Name:  gestures1.jpg

    Hello Carlaprada,

    Had a look at your drawings. As someone starting out, I must say I really do like your drawing from 3 days ago (the man with the stick or spear).
    I think the line quality in that one is what you should be trying to achieve more. I'm not experienced enough to tell you that all the better defined lines are in the correct place, but I do like the interaction between different segments of the same line.
    In the last sketches you are doing this once again, but the line is not that well defined and the segments are not as clear.

    Well, just my impressions as a relative newcomer. Hope it helps you.

    Hi Christof simons

    Thanks so much for your comment. Yes I agree I need to work on my line quality a lot. I'm trying to adopt the theory of containing volumes and showing how forms fit into one another. Mostly techniques from my Vilppu class. Thanks again for your comment.

    I have some tips for you that helped and still help me a lot:

    First, I think some more focused studies, such as the anatomy of the torso or face, for example, can help achieve more satisfactory results.

    Second, I would say your lines are compatible with someone who is learning, they demonstrate insecurity, which is something that you will lose with time. My lines were terrible, much worse than you can imagine, but over time they have improved a lot and I think will be the same thing with you. I suggest you to draw light and then make the outline, always remembering to use the shoulder to the longest lines. You are free to erase the sketch lines if you want a cleaner look to the drawing, this is generally done when you want finish the piece, but it's all up to you.

    Third, keep practicing and never give up! I see much potential in your drawings!
    Sorry for the bad english
