    Talking What do you think of some of my drawings?

    Hi,
    I'm new here, so I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong, then in that case, I'm sorry. Anyway I just wanted to get some feedback on some of my ''artworks''. I want to know more about the quality of my sketches and how I could improve drawing and painting!Sometimes I feel insecure about my creativity and I really want to develop an art style that can be called mine.. Thank you so much for your attention!

    If you want to post a bunch of stuff, you're probably better off posting it in the sketchbooks section. As for the drawings themselves, they are nice. Some of the noses look a bit weird and you should probably focus a bit on getting them right. Also lips might be a bit over defined.

    I know this isn't exactly what you want to hear, but, hey, it' still a helpful critique, I guess.

    Shrink the images a bit before posting, in a manner that each picture would fit in a screen, without the need for scrolling. It's a bit uncomfortable to look at.

    I also don't know in which aspect you're looking for critique. I can say some of the faces are very iconographic on some pictures. I'm almost certain you're not looking for realism here, though. So, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .
    "There're no lines in real life" / Is this a sketchbook? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Hi there, I can see that you have nice mark making skills Some attractive inking and pencil designs on your portraits.

    Your work will definitely benefit from doing studies from life, masters, and photos. Really try to break down the proportions of the face, until you can whip it out confidently like a recipe you know back to front. In the future, it will be easier for us to give you specific critiques if you choose one image to work with, that we can break down in a more condensed way.
    Good luck!

    Thank you so much for your kind words! I truly appreciate what you are saying! I had the idea too, before I used to draw in a realistic way and I wanted to try a style that felt more “mine”.. even though I will try and use reference pics. Thank you again for your tips,they will be very useful!

    Thank you so much! I’m sorry, as said, it’s my first time here but I wasn’t sure where to post it, next time I will! About the lips do you mean the line art or the way they are drawn?

    No problem! Thank you for saying this and for making me notice,I will try next time.. as I wrote it’s my first time here so I don’t know perfectly how it works. Nope, I used to draw in a realistic way but I wanted to change a bit my style!

    Your linework is awesome! Just need to work structurally, your features are off center/out of proportion on most of these, be sure to double check the facial proportions and perspective on the sketch before inking

    You are drawing symbols and not the actual structure. Get the Loomis books or watch the Proko videos on youtube.

    About the lips do you mean the line art or the way they are drawn?
    What I mean is that currently the way you draw lips currently looks like they have overly harsh make up on. And that's because of the thick outlines surrounding them. The faces you draw are quite soft so this feels very unintentional. What you want to be doing is using your line work sparingly, and showing the transition between the rest of the face and the lips with colour.

    Thank you so much for the advice,I’ll try to do softer lines!
