    It does look like you are improving...keep up the life drawings...I would almost say stop doing blind contours all together...personally i dont think they serve any real good purpose in general. Concentrate on understanding structure, proportions, and anatomy. Most of your work is looking very flat...it doesn't seem like you understand the structure and planes of the human face. You are also getting a lot of "chicken scratch" to define your forms...which isn't good..learn to drop a line in confidence...don't make scratchy lines and hope for the best. When you do studies, try to be as accurate as possible...doesn't have to be perfect, but they should look believable. You have posted a lot of work here and seem very serious...if art is what you want to do, look for some ateliers and private schools in NYC, i see you are from brooklyn. Go to artrenewal.org and look for some schools and get some good training. Don't go to college for art, especially since all of your work is figurative. Keep up the studies.

    the hand studies and portraits are really showing some really good improvement, blind contours are quite interesting also. Keep doing those studies, my favorite is this drawing. How much time did you put into it. turned out good.

    Hey guys, I'm back after a tough couple of weeks. I was not in the drawing mood because my mom had open heart surgery about 2 weeks ago. She is doing much better now so I'm slowly getting back to normal.

    1.Here are some fun sketches I did to get the rust out.
    2.Practicing with circles.
    3.Drawing stuff laying around my living room.
    4.And finally, some basic shapes.

    Will be back soon with more for you guys. Stay tuned.

    wow, nice improvement already
    i like the skateboarder, and the rendering on Rogue, but the overall shape looks wrong.
    BTW, where did you learn about blind contour drawing and uspide down drawing? i never did anyhing like that, was it in some book?
    keep on drawing, you can only improve

    ciao

    You seem to be going about everything the right way! And I think it shows great improvement in just 2 pages of your sketchbook! Well done, and keep at it!

    Just went through your thread... I was going to say that you have to be more daring when it comes to putting down lines with more weight, but now I see that you've already started doing that... hehe.. You've made a lot of progress already! Keep doing the studies, and keep having fun!

    I'll check back

    What an improvement over this sketchbook. Your studies are really coming along, those portraits in particular. I wouldn't rush them, take your time when you can, i think you'll learn more from 1 patient piece than 20 quick sketches. Awesome work with the felt pen, you're laying down your lines very confidently.

    Come get your fix.

    Nice sketchbook you have here Gmag! I can definitally see improvements from when you started. I like the skull studies with marker you did. And that tiger and the rendered portraits you've done are awsome too.

    Keep up the good work!

    Hey Gmags, pretty decent stuff lately. That Rob Zombie portrait´s awesome, isn´t he a comic book artist himself? Anyway, nice loose lines. Maybe the faces you draw could need a bit more structure, like indicating the cheekbones or stressing the planes a bit more. But don´t worry, they´re already lookin´ pretty solid, just keep going.

    the rob zombie sketch is great, and i like the Da vinci studys..
    i think you should do some studys of hair, suggest areas of light and dark tone instead of trying to draw every hair, it should make a big improvement to your portraits.
    keep up the good work..
