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

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!
Your auto portrait is really cool, but why you have put that green strokes, I just don't like them. On the second picture I can see some letters through the paper. Just a tip, put a black paper on the paper when you scan in order to get rid of the junk on the other side! Try to finish the drawing of the old man it is very nice.
fellah : Thanks man, i see what you mean with the ears, i'll keep that in mind;
Mentler : thanks! means a lot coming from you
Stokes : Thank you, love your sketchbook btw
Glikster : Thanks
bumskee : Thanks, altough next time i'll try to actually make it look like me
PHATandy : yeah, i sketched the underline with green pencil and then rendered
it with a normal mechanical pencil. seems not such a good choice
But thanks anyway Unit18 Nate : I know. but it still is an excellent way to learn.
Ivan R : Thanks for the tip man , and i'll definately loose the green pencil, haha
jacobsteel : Thanks
Now some new sketches, not really happy with this new batch, but hey what the heck, it"s just a sketchbook right ? :
This drawing was to illustrate the grandmother- grandchild relationship and it was meant as a gift to someone dear to me it's still a WIP tough. And It sucks that it such a bad scan. Drawing too big to fit on scanner so don't mind the terrible composition for now . I'll post the finished version properly, i promise :
Did these 2 while watching a film earlier, can't remember wich one :
2 portrets: one of my dad, quickly from life, has lots of errors but strangely still has a good resemblance and one that's still a WIP for a friend , from a picture :
Both done in a bar, was bored and waiting for someone, second one from life :
