    algebra's FREE MONEY! WHEEEE! Updated often again :)

    Hey everyone, I'm new here to CA.org. My name's Kevin, but you can call me algebra if you want. I'm 15 years old and live near Chicago, Illinois. I've been drawing for a while and I've recently been trying to learn anatomy and all that fancy stuff for the past few months. These are just a couple of my latest things, and I plan to keep this thread updated as often as I can.

    I have a good 3 or 4 pages of just hands from tonight, but I thought this one was decent enough to post. (And plus my scanner likes to not work).

    I'm almost done with this one. I was messing around with colors considering I've never digitally colored something on my own all the way through. No reference on this one, it just started out as a pencil sketch in class.


    Critiques, comments, and advice are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Algebra, nice start on your sketchbook, and welcome to CA!! The first sketch in color has a lot of character and good design elements in it. The hands are looking good too, do more of those, we need to see them! And don't be afraid to post, even if you think the sketches you've done aren't good enough. You're never as good or as bad as you think you are. Cheers.

    Some random, badly done sketch that I inked with some fat sharpie I found on the floor and colored in under 10 minutes. I actually really like the colors in this one, I'm pretty satisfied. (The belt and sword sheath never got colored I guess). I hate the color choices (all the bright clothes) but I really never color things in bright colors, and I needed practice on it.

    I'm working on some drawings from life and photo ref right now, I should have those up later tonight.

    Ref used, from the nude reference thread.

    More hands, not as good as the last batch I don't think. (my scanner messed this scan up a bit, not sure why).


    I'm hoping to keep this updated as frequently as possible.

    i like the woman with the purple tentacles. everything else seems like steady progress for you. when youre doing the human skull, always pay attention to the curves and shapes of everything, especially with the spinal cord, as well as the teeth arrangements.

    Thanks, both of you.

    Heroic - I know what you mean. I really don't like how I go over my lines so much, it's a bad habit. In the first page of hand sketches I was really practicing breaking that habit. Thanks for the advice.

    Azeira - Thanks, and I'll pay close attention next time I do studies like that (should be tonight or tomorrow, haha).

    Since I don't have any live models to draw from at my house right now (I don't like drawing in the mirror, I move too much). I drew from a photo ref from the nude reference thread.

    Reference used.

    Don't know how much I like this one. Took me exactly one hour (timed).

    I practically never draw anything besides humans, so I figured I'd try my hand at some creature. Original sketch in pencil took about 20 minutes, and the colors took 40-50 because I work really slow. Haha. I really wanted to push contrast and saturation in this one (and try having a second, colored light source).

    I was just screwing around earlier today and realized why a lot of my faces are skewed. (Eyes too far to one side, not set back far enough, and nose too far to one side). This is kind of a before and after, the two on the left were before I knew what I was doing wrong and the two on the right were after. And the one in the bottom right was me combining some anatomy studies for the day with a sketch.

    Speaking of which, does anyone have a large picture of a full skeleton? Googling yields little to no results.

    And this one is just studies from Loomis' Figure Drawing For All It's Worth.
