    cool beans- nice forms. As far as the shading issue, hard to tell as the digital pix are a bit flat and need a bit of contrast. Setting up an area to shoot artwork depends on local light. Extra lighting can be used you just have to mess around with what works without glare.

    One issue with scanning, photocopying, and digital photos is that graphite reflects back and gives some fuzzy.

    Nice work-

    Heya Recursive_End, i'm glad you decided to start a Sketchbook. The drawings you've shown so far are good studies of life forms. Yeah as Gnome said, the pics are a bit fuzzy so try to get that sorted out. But so far so good. Just keep going and you'll do fine

    Nice start
    I like your anatomy and the one with the flexing muscles, nice shading but you should try to get hold of a scanner
    btw, why do you include your pen in the snapshots?

    Ok, here's some new stuff. I decided to restart everything from zero, cause i realised my lack in anatomy
    anyway here it is (sorry for the bad quality, i'll have my own scanner in a few months)
    Still not done with this one, was inspired by Daniel Long's scene "Iniquity insert 1", have to put something on the top left corner, but i dont know what...

    my main crit would be that I find the presence of the mechanical pencil in your scans/photographs a lil distracting....

    Crits on your work? for me its too early to say. Just draw more; especially from life with regards to the human form. Much of what you must do you probably already know....draw more from life, of families, friends, experiment more with composition, color etc...keep-at-it!

    Nice work... perfect to begin, of course is still early to judge everything, but there is some anatomycal problems to be solve, specially on the hands and faces, just a few recommendations, go out and draw in a coffee place or park, use different kind of pencil hardeness to get a variable range of tones, and keep practicing anatomy, but overall don´t stop drawing!!! is the only way to get better, by the way I really like the drawing in your avatar... Keep going don´t stop...

    great improvement here, mate. keep em coming and imo you should resize some of these down so they fit on smaller monitors.

    http://pix.nofrag.com/4e/9a/365d2a5a...1d3e29dee5.jpg - i like where this one is going compositionally, but feel like there needs to be a little something to dominate the bottomish foreground area. just a thought. other than that, i think that http://pix.nofrag.com/1c/8b/a78ef80c...402165f207.jpg definitely could use some detail on the hands, maybe some stronger values under the butt cheeky cheeky cheeks.

    here's hoping you had a merry scanner-receiving christmas

    hehe thanks for the comments
    About the colors, first im kinda broke these days, and second im trying to concentrate as much as possible with my pencil. Not that i dont want to color them, i'd appreciate to give more depth to those drawings, buti prefer wait till i live at my dads ( next june or july). Till then, imjust working with my pencil.
    Thanks again for the suggestion
