I really got inspired by a lot of the sketchbooks here, especially the ones who have improved a hell of a lot over time. I'm pretty poor in drawing and painting (hmm i guess that's just about all there is...crap.), but I mostly want to improve:
1) faces and skintones...I've never really liked drawing anything as much as faces...unfortunately I suck at them, especially because I can't use my own face as a guide to draw "typical" faces, especially as my profile is pretty flat, lack eyelid folds, eyebrow bridge etc.
2) drawing from life, very quickly.
3) men. mine all look like really ugly girls. I actually lean toward wanting to draw girly ones, but at least they should look sort of normal.
4) more movement in my compositions.
I doubt any ppl will respond to this sketchbook since I'm not that great, but critiques are appreciated as always!
A quick self-portrait done with a mirror, and a face practice (supposed to be a guy?), and just some pics to compare to my painting.
I have other doodles in my sig, but I'll post my other self portrait and ex. of my children's book style (but not necessarily part of it).
