Hello this is my sketchbook im still learning. Ive been drawing for quite a while traditional media I havent tried digital yet mainly becuase my computer not that great. Im 15 and I attend school in Florida. My friends say I draw really well but truly I dont think so because half of them have no clue what theyre talking about. Anyways C and C welcome

i like ur approach and ur perspective studies *do more of them.. iv done alot and it helped me to boost up my improvements up to 350%.. made cubes only for 3 month or so... good way to understand drawing basics * vanishing point - perspective - symmetrie - dynamic - foreshortening*
i see u using burnehogarth ? i love him ! his books are awesome.. one reason for that is .. he draw muscles and no skin.. which shows u how to draw them,... its fukin hard to know where and how my muscles are placed when i see skin... this why i DONT USE loomis or any others.. who draws skin and some other stuff .. when i wanna know how to draw skin.. ill use loomis *hey mister loomis .. greetings 2 ya *
think about perspective and vanishing points.. how to indicate distance and depth on 2d flat papr sheets..and try to understand how to measure proportions.. they have a special relationsihp.. .. draw stuff simplified .. bodys made out of cubes adn cylinders... it helped me to understand this really quickly
also shading always depends on its surface below... diffrent surface diffrent shading.. because the light flow is diffrent .. take lil lamp and move it around ur head while watch in a mirror or something
put somekinda cloth or handkerchief over ur hand.. the cloth will simulate ur skin which is equal to ur surface and volume
when u : 1 change ur light direction .. the shadow and light flow changes...
or 2: when u move ur fingers the skin will bulg and bend and flex which causes diffrent light flow too
the glases guy... reminds me in johnny depp in secret window
if u need some more tips n stuff.-. just ask or pm !

I'm going to expand on light and shading (from what sideshowbob wrote)
To learn light, shading and getting stuff 3d a great basic exercise is to get some cubes (you know just get some boxes) cylinders (take e.g toilet rolls paint them white will and they work better) balls (tennis ball whatever), cones, eggs. then just draw them put focus on how the shade shifts, use a single lightsource if possible, draw then change the direction of the light draw again. You will learn a lot from this exercise (not only shading) since when you draw e.g the human figure you think in simplified ways (as sideshowboob mentioned) like the arms as cylinders the head sometimes as box somtimes as an egg depending on what works best with the current lighting.
keep going... you got good stuff and as you practice you will be better.
My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
Ps:Hope you understand my English.
Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

Some oil pastels, and Barcsay, Vanderpoel, and Nicolaides.
Here's some recent stuff I've been working on. Just ten pictures I'll explain some of them.
Some oil pastels with hands, they turned out ok I don't really like them but I think oil pastels are kind of cool.
I love sphere kind of dark they came out to be withg my scanner.
More spheres a play on colors.
A hand in oil pastels, I don't like again.
My friend Lane I love his facial expressions, no I'm not gay.
My sister said this seemed sinister I just like it kind of but I wish I rendered the shading better.
Barcsay anatomy studies (I need to continue lol)
Barcsay muscle studies.
Im trying to get better at getting the form and doing faces from my head but so far I;ve just been drawing each persons face in TIME magazine. Hopefully, Im hoping this will help. Also using Vanderpoels to get thoose eyes to look corrrectly like deep and meaningful.
Thats all /
