    wow, your dedication is awesome.

    im looking thru and im thinking... your drawings could be more sensitive to what it feels like to be looking at something. like not just drawing a line for the edge of an object, and scribbling in a shadow where it is darker, more like... making a mark that is weak if the top edge of an object doesnt jut out at you, or making marks that convey how the edges of 2 walls intersect... it's a difficult thing to imagine without being shown what i mean. but basically drawing what it feels like to see something, not just drawing something.

    Great to see all the effort and with all this practice you'll get better very fast. Nice to see the work on the facial structure. Keep practicing and draw from life, too. The scratchboard is very nice, you created a mood with the background technique.

    Hey, nice life drawings! I was going to give you the link to the loomis books but I see I got beat to it.

    Seriously, those are among the best possible books you can get. You could start with "Figure Drawing For All its Worth". Just reading the opening letter should get you on a major inspiration high. Start with human proportions, move on to anatomy, etc, its all there.

    If you can join a figure drawing class that would be really good too.

    Really, you're doing great, and its great to see such motivation. One thing you could do is push the values more on some of your drawings, make the darks darker, and the lights, lighter. Chapter 3 of Figure Drawing for All its Worth introduces you to the subject of Lighting : ) (I think it was chapter 3...)

    Cheers, and just keep drawing. Post your loomis studies when you do them!

    Thanks, yea I do need to push deeper values...I will try to do that...I started goin through the head drawing book from loomis, but I guess I should read that one too. I think eventually i'll go through all of them.



    I still haven't figured out how i'm going to deal with this...it's for an enviromental design class...this is what it looks like so far.

    Keep up the good work, like what I have heard so many times before. Draw from life and if you haven't gotten any of those loomis books.Get them, they will teach you lot about drawing the human body.

    Pay attention to how thing look and visualize there shapes and forms. Study from the classical master is another great why to learn.

    P.S. Don't give up, there will be times that it seems you are not improving. Keep this in mind, all artist started from somewhere. But those whose haven't given up gotten better and better. Keep drawing everyday and every chance you get.The more you draw, the better going to get.

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook. Looking at your work reminds me of my highschool years. When I used to doodle all over my books and nootebooks. You seem very serious and progressive.I wish I were as determinate as you are. Maybe I m not experienced enough to make suggestions but I believe I have a few things to add;

    First of all since you were talking about an enviromental design class I get that you have some knowledge of design. Every thing you learn as basic design principles can be applied to concept art aswell. Such as figure ground relations, continiuty etc. A well planned composition adds a great value to your work.

    Then focus on improving how to use your drawing equipment. How you use your pencil is very careless. Try to imagine that your lines are wrapping the object you are shading and change the direction you move your pencil acordingly.

    And one last thing; man you'll be a great artist if you go this way! Take care

    All ready seeing great progress... Just kick kicking your self in the ass, and drawing like a mad man... Read what andrew loomis has wrote, dont just jump to the drawing part... He has some information in there that you do not want to miss and is really important..


    Orginally from http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=226083

    A Note about Loomis (from Lunatique)

    Andrew Loomis was a respected and prolific illustrator and teacher. His instructional books have become some of the most sought after art books in the last decades. Most of his books have been out-of-print for decades, and command prices of hundreds of American dollars for a second-hand copy.

    In recent years, various people managed to locate most of his instructional books, and made them public online. This is an amazing gift - one that shouldn't be overlooked or ignored.

    To the youngest generation of aspiring artists the Loomis books are perhaps taken for granted, not regarded nearly as seriously as they should be. This is unfortunate - it's as if people are passing up the chance to be taught by one of the best art teachers that ever lived - FOR FREE. Loomis books like "Creative Illustration", "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth", "Successful Drawing", "Eye of the Painter"..etc are equivalent of years of the best art school education money can buy. Even the most advanced professional artists study the teachings of Loomis.

    If you are a beginner, you need Loomis. Don't go searching for some kind of magical tutorial that will miraculously turn you into a better artist overnight - such a thing does not exist. Your best chance at improving and growing is to read the Loomis books from cover to cover, to do all the exercises provided in them. If you can master the contents, you will become a master artist yourself. That is not an exaggeration - that's a promise.

    Good improvements so far, you're on the right track. Keep up those life studies!
    My favorite so far is the last page of sketches, and the sketch of glasses you did a while ago. In both of these you simplified the work a bit, which made it more effective I think.
    Just keep up the good work, looks like you're having fun drawing.

    TJping: I like to draw characters mainly but I found that I struggled alot with anatomy so i'm striving to imrove on that. I like to draw alot of things though. Sometimes I just throw lead around to see what happens...kinda fun. Thanks

    SirGreenSock: Thanks, yea i'm having a blast, I think this is like 5 or 6 weeks so far that i've been really unloading lead and ink. The glasses sketch, i'm assuming that's the one with alot of bottles and the computer desk? Yea I just roughed it the best I could in about 5 or 10 minutes after seeing someone else simplify part of their room, it was pretty cool since I didn't know I could do it...even though it wasn't like an awesome drawing.

    If i were you i wouldn´t be working digitally yet. Just focus on paper and pen.
    You´re making great progress! Keep it up!

    This is my favourite so far:

    your faces have improved a lot since you started.
    make sure you work with a sharp pencil and take your time, drawing is as much about observing correctly as about making marks on paper.

    one book that's helped me a lot is "Drawing on the rightside of the brain"

    keep up the practice and you will improve

    only used a reference on the top left one, was just screwing around on the rest.


    #141

    I drew this one in the dark in a moving car.


    #142

    sketch this one out while I was standing in a line for a buffet


    #143

    I started this chain of sketches after I sat down with my parents and realized that other than the waitresses, my family, and myself, everyone was "large". So I took the challenge and just unloaded...these were difficult since these people kept walking around to get more food, I had to go fast.
