    Art_Addict :: """"""""""""" PRAHA DROP """"""""""""

    Hi,

    Finally , finally started my own personal CA sketchbook ! Whooa, i'm all excited All crits , suggestions are much appreciated . I want to improve !

    i'll start with a funky self portrait as way to introduce myself . It has anatomical issues, doesn't really look like me, ...... he, but i still kinda like it

    Art_Addict :: """"""""""""" PRAHA DROP """"""""""""

    Sometimes , i like to doodle at work (bartender at a restaurant) a bit when its quiet :
    Art_Addict :: """"""""""""" PRAHA DROP """"""""""""

    This was from a movie screenshot, but i don't remember wich one. Note to myself !! : don't think rendering a bad drawing is gonna make it better !!!

    Art_Addict :: """"""""""""" PRAHA DROP """"""""""""

    Two doodles, unfinished, they're just details of a bigger page. No ref. well actually , sometimes i start drawing from life and the person stands up and leaves after a minute and then i try to finish the drawing outa my head or play with it a little bit :

    Art_Addict :: """"""""""""" PRAHA DROP """"""""""""

    Art_Addict :: """"""""""""" PRAHA DROP """"""""""""

    Cheers
    Tom

    Hi man - this is a really cool start. Strong self portrait and really nice pencil work. I only see some small anatomical issues - the prime evil - mostly around the ears. But it looks like that should be easy for you to get under control.
    Keep it up and keep posting!

    yeah these are great. Very expressive line work. You do a great job of leaving some areas looser than others. Keep em coming

    ahah nice update man, your pencil work is really great.

    What i was trying to say is about your faces. Is in some cases (possibly the non ref ones??) you tend to squish the faces a bit.

    ie. the distance between the bottom of the lips and the eyebrows comes squashed on the whole size of the head. so it looks like they have a big forhead..

    I think its most obvious in you last update- on the picture of the side on view of the girls head -0 with the eyes closed. Here face looks a little squashed. Maybe make them a little longer - compared tofeature sizes and width etc.

    Good work though, theres really great stuff here.

    Hi,

    Fellah : Thanks again man. it's always joy looking trough your pages

    PhatAndy : I understand what your saying but i'm having difficulty seeing what you see. In most of the drawings the foreheads look fine to me the squashing of the faces is clearer to me now. i'll work on that , thanks mate

    Here's the finished version of the drawing i posted earlier.
    Hope you like :

    extremely nice!!
    I don't have to say, it's about time (especially since I haven't updated mine in almost as long....I'm gonna get on it, I swear!)

    I love your style... my only crit is on this last finished face. I think it might be there's not enough contrast in the face... but something is throwing me off. Also, his teeth seem completely blown out. Otherwise.... gorgeous updates!
