    *********** My Sketchbook attempt *************

    Hi people! I am new here, and since I was so impressed and inspired by y'all I decided to post my work. At the moment I do it as a hobby, but I will definitely like to improve, and with the help of CA I think I will succeed!

    About myself, well, I have been drawing since very little, but I did it because I liked it . I didn t do any studies or anything. But now I have started doing so, and I want to show what Im up to.

    Please, crits n crits n more crits, any kind , are welcome. For starters, some sketches with pen.

    Hey man. You've got a lot of good stuff going on here. I don't know whether you take measurements of your heads, but if you don't you'll save yourself a lot of time and keep yourself away from frustration if you measure. In my opinion nowadays (used to hate studying anatomy) proportions and anatomy is the key to being able to produce quality drawings in the future. I'm myself just starting to understand the importance of studying these things. It also reduces the amount of time you have to spend on one drawing. Keep posting and I will be following your progress. Btw... Thanks for visiting my sketchbook.

    Good start here. I agree with Placeboast about the measurements for the heads. Pat attention to structure and form. On some of the profiles, the eyes are way off, they look almost as if viewed from the front. If you can, draw from life. I'd like to see some more, so post often.

    Hi jtheanswer! What I´ve noted is that your heads have very sharp chins. And sometimes they are a bit too long. I´m thinking at the moment of buying a skull replica (besides using proper books for studying face anatomy) Maybe it would help you as well. I think that you would profit from it, as you´d get a feeling for the proportions.
    Keep up!

    Thkx people! Many thkx to all of you for spending your time and your words on my thread and giving some feedback.

    You are all right, I will try to get down with some books asap.

    Fat Kid - You got it damn right! Thats Angelina, I am surprised you recognised it. Also, I got some Anime influences, maybe thats why I got those proportions on the faces.


    Here are some studies and some more sketches:

    Hey there. Good studies here, I especially like that little dancer woman who's grabbing her foot. Really nice form on the legs and hips. I also like the rendering on your muscle studies...very readable.

    Someone may have mentioned this already, but you might wanna take more time making sure your basic head structures are right before you start adding facial details. I have the same trouble a lot.

    Thanks for your comments in my book.

    nice studies and drawings!
    it's really good to know how the body works, but as i can see, your main problem should be, that the lines dont look correctly positioned, right?
    if so, i'd propose to start with geometrical figures like cylinders and cubes to construct the thing you want to draw.

    for example my attempt to draw the human body (i dont know every muscle, so sideshowbob [<-- also from conceptart <-- he's my tutor] told me that there are still a lot of mistakes!):

    http://mitglied.lycos.de/panda89/figure.JPG

    as you can see, i started with those simple figures to draw that body
    I hope, this helped you a bit.
    Keep it up.

    jtheanswer: Nice start to your sketchbook (good decision made that you joined us)

    If I can give some hint (me is a noob but you wanted to hear crits etc. I would follow Panda´s advice:

    see figure in a pure geometric manner dont bother with anatomy now! Build figures from reference using only cylinders boxes and ball for head. Look for balance of chest and pelvis - they are always in ballance (check some photos with interesting pose), look for stretch / compress in the body and weight (good for knowing where the weight is this rule: "The nose knows where the weight is." Check this rule by making a vertical line directly from nose to the ground, you will see that there will be the weight supported by foot.

    Just my 2 cents! Keep up the work!!

    Cheers!

    It's great to see you doing all these studies, dude!!!
    Well one main problem that I noticed in your studies, is that you do not really seam to have an idea about the skeleton or bones in general. It doesn't make any sense to study muscles, that are attached to the bones, without any knowledge about the skeleton itself. Study the constructive forms of the knee, pelvis, and torso, and then start to add muscles and after that start to add skin. In my opinion this is the most efficient way to learn : Bone -> Muscles ->skin. In addition to that the learning will become easier the more you learn, because when you know how all the joints work, it just needs a bit of logical thinking to find out and keep in mind, where the muscles are.
    Just keep at it mate, don't give up and you'll be fine

    Fat Kid - Thanks for your comments man! I just have couple of images of that book? Can you tell me the name of that book? I think you can download it from the internet? Not so sure.

    max1975 - Thanks for your advice. Ive doing some head studies, Ill post it later some time, (the studies are harder than I thought).

    johnny78 - Thx, I will try to keep up.

    panda89 - Thx for your suggestion. I will try to work that out.

    libor - Thx man!! Appreciate that.

    gloominati - Thats cool! For a beginner, is better to start practicing with the skeleton and bones, or maybe the shapes, cylinders and boxes method?

    A big thanks to all of you guys to pop up in my SB and show some appreciation and willing to help. Here are some more pics to show what I am up to.

    you're on the right track, jtheanswer, keep with those anatomy studies and you will be doing some great figures in no time. I already see some very nice ones.

    try working on larger sheets of paper. too many of your studies are cramped. also, don't neglect working from life. it really makes a world of difference.
