Scribblings of a madman
The names James, I'm 23 and I'm from the UK. I work as a flash animator, and while it's fun/awesome job it doesn't allow for much opportunity to draw and as a result I feel I need to get myself into gear and really push my drawing skills if I ever want to be able to draw for a living...
For the past few years I have used Tumblr as a sketchbook, on here are a few paintings and such, but I've been lacking feedback and a sense of commitment to it. So I'm making the switch to here to bump up my skills!
Ill kick this sketchbook off with a few of studies. Any critiques are welcome, don't hold back! haha
I shall return!

Keep going with the imaginitive ones, I prefer those, but other people are different.

here's a few from yesterday and today!
i also went to a life drawing class in Manchester last night with some guys from work, but ill upload them tonight
With these quickposes i was trying to use more confident lines, but i now realise how much i rely on undo so im gonna try think before a draw next time haha
Thanks man, I much prefer doing stuff from my head... put on some music and go wild haha
but i guess you just gotta grind out the studies to get good at them
I love the studies and progress so far! That pinkish girl looks really cute and I can see her easily simplified into shapes. Keep it up!
