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 :
Great drawings man! You're sp just kicks ass. The grandmas rendering is very nice. My only suggestion is to give your drawings more contrast, for example i think if you make the eye region of you father's portrait darker, it would look much better. Once again I ask the question : have you tried using ink mediums? i think it would suit your drawing well.
Wow, I am stunned! The first picture in the new post is really great! I also like a lot the second and the drawing of your father. The nostril of the horse is quite big and the legs of the men on the horse are very short. The hair of the boy is very well drawn but the lower lip seems big to me. Great work I am impatient to see more!
I have seen that you are Belgian. So do you speak French? Si c'est le cas je préfère t'écrire en français.

Bravo..You got a great sense of depth and proportion, shading is excelent, even the ugly people you drew look fantastic! The woman and the baby is my favorite..beautiful. I have nothing to crit on! I demand much more! ~Sio
Great stuff goin on in here! The grandmother and grandchild is coming out nicely. Do you have a digital camera? You could try it for large sketches, and you wont run the risk of smudging your drawing. Keep em' coming!
Hey! Returning the favor...really nice rendering, I'm envious!
Nice to see the drawing of the horse: more please! Animals are always good. That was Gandalf, wasn't it? The rendering of the old man? Looks like him anyway...Nice work, look forward to seeing more!
Wow! Really good stuff here! Very realistic! And I like realistic! Shading, features, expressions: all really great! Keep up the good work (and don't say something like "oh I plan to, why would I stop" cause then that makes me feel like I put something obvious and stupid)!
