your faces are pretty good already but i used to draw "faces and bodys-only" for a long time and faces and hands are the most complicated things you can learn about the human body.. try to draw more easy things like the ball or just a carton box first.. this will help improving your line quality and sense for forms.. i guess
thanks for the comment..ya..the course i'm taking called "learn to draw" so it's pretty much just the basics..hopefully it will reinforce fundamentals...as well as improving my confidence, the line quality and the shading in my drawings.
tonights work...about an hour..wanted to put a reflection of something in the eye, but i don't have the skills at the moment...i need to start drawing things other than people if i'm gonna get into industrial design...haha
edit: my scanner seems to be twisting the images a bit..

Im shure youve never heard of Pforzheim ^^
Well, there lots of car companies around here ( mercedes, porshe, vw) so my school got a very strong transportation design departmet, but else is more or less average...
thats still great..i check out your sketchbook..nice work...my family seems to be covering most of the design aspects...one cousin is in graphic design...one in interior design and i'm goin the industrial/transportation route...
ok...here's my work from tonight.....i actually like this one...i'm gonna try colouring it with photoshop (never tried any photoshop rendering...). then i'll probly try colouring it with my pastel pencils.
lemme know wut you think..

hay tweak !!!! cool your takeing the class man !
my suggestion is to really nail down basic shapes and perspective shapes in 3 d .. cube cilnder piramid ect .. and really work on perspective and then apply thease things to your figures and well every thing else after that i know it might seem like a pain in the ass dto draw endlass boxes and shti but you wont have to do it forever and thease things will really help you in the long run
and rember after you studie have fun and try and apply what you learnned with your studdieng keep up the good work mate
hello again loyal readers...(haha..no one reads this). well last night was the second night of my weekly drawing course...we basically just did basic geometric shapes and shading all night...there was only one sketch from last night worth posting so here it is....it is charcoal on cartridge paper. enjoy.
p.s. sorry about the quality...it is too big (18x24) for my scanner so i had to use my really horrible digital cam.

well after the third class this is the most postable thing...all we did last night was one point perspective...kinda boring and repetative..but i guess its good for me. everything from class will be on charcoal on 18x24 cartrige paper so i'll hafta use my digital camera to get pics (so quality will be horrible.. )...not much to say about this pic but i hope to hear some more comments anyway..
edit: oh ya...i picked up a set of cool grey prismacolour markers last night so i'm gonna start tryin some marker renderings...yay. umm, one question..photobucket deleted all my pictures so i had to re-upload them...is that normal?

haha..just found this..nissan skyline from a pen and ink pointillism project for school a few years ago. it had a really good background, but someone spilled a jar of ink on it..luckily i saved the car...beautiful isn't it?
also..this is about a month old..i was gonna try to fix it before i posted it, but i think i officially give up..so here it is.

so uh...no more suggestions for improvements?...i would appreciate anything, no matter how insulting it may sound...also i'm still wondering if its normal for photobucket to just erase your pics...i was also wondering if there are any better (more bandwith/reliability) image hosting sites out there?...thanks again.
hello again my faithful readers...drawing class last week was just simple two-point perspective..very boring, nothing interesting to post so i won't. this weeks class is starting portraits and figure drawing...i'm looking forward to that stuff. ok, i have a few sketches to post.
just a few improvements and additions to this sketch...
this is closer to a final version from an earlier idea that i posted.
and these are some new ideas..i'm starting a better version but i was hoping someone would help me decide which of them is best....when i do this it will be my first attempt with my prismacolors...so hopefully it doesn't turn out too horrible.
alright thats all for now...someone please suggest which of the four ideas (or mix and match different aspects) that i should continue to work on.
i think i like the person in the top right one....the cliff in the last one and the moon in the third one...let me know wut you think. i'm going to ottawa tomorrow morning to check out carleton university. long drive with give me lots of time to draw...should have some form of an update when i return wednesday night.
also..i was bored so i scanned my markers.

I agree with you on the top right thumbnail... although check your placement of the figure, it's smack in the center on all the thumbs, moving it around may make things more interesting. keep working, you're improving!
well i havn't posted in about a month...i've spent some time researching and buying a laptop .....but don't you worry loyal readers, one week left of my course...then post a huge dump of my progression and everything i did there...see ya then i guess....
k i need advice...i have 3-4 days a week to work on my portfolio...its not really that important for my program but i'd like it to be as good as it can be....so wut should i work on?...keep sketching or start goin more toward finished products?....try to learn to render/colour with photoshop?....try my markers (i've been afraid to try)?...lets get some suggestions please!
