    mostly in order of when they were done.

    sorry for the lack of finished/ rendered pieces. With the city, skatepark and wooden workshop i took so long with perspective and rulers that i lost interest and missed out on the fun parts. I will go back over them i think. I know the skatepark is complete poo btw. also i learnt that if a circle is horizontal then the elipse must have a vertical minor axis. so i have learnt why the cup and other drawings are wrong now! there are some scanning issues also, sorry. there are lots of doodles and stuff ive missed out but i think you get the picture. thanks

    Perspective is an important thing to learn, and it seems you've got it down pretty good so far.
    I actually like how the skatepark turned out.
    Some of the other sketches are indeed a bit of with the perspective as you mentioned.
    But they are good practice, and you've been able to pin down the problem so that's great.

    Keep on sketching mate !

    ps:
    Don't worry about posting finished renders.
    This is a "sketch"book forum, afterall. :-)

    cheers

    thats all ive managed to do since i started
    im not studying any artistic subjects, except going over some coursework to re-submit, and alot of my free time is taken up by other things atm. but im trying my best to do something everyday

    i think its about time to dabble in some over mediums, and maybe even......
    ... colour! - not because im any good with a pencil/grayscale just because i need something to refresh me

    cheers

    Great start with the perspective focus, I've heard in said many times that the key to this who concepting and drawing malaki lies with good perspective.

    And I can see your "having fun with a pencil" loomis style. Make sure you double read all his Introducing talks/ending talks in all his books

    You shading is very nice and soft, and you lines very controlled, keep up the organised approach

    Not a bad stgart for just jumping into things. You really have some good subjects so far, I really like the coffee mug study, along with some of the persepctive sketches.

    You seem to be a bit overwhelemed with the white space though. Don't be afraid to really get in and use a lot of pencil. In fact, why not try filling a page in a soft graphite and using an eraser to get the details of an object?

    Try out some new tools too, ball point pen (One of my favorites for sketching), ink washes, crayons. Just keep at it, and keep experimenting.

    wow, thanks man. never thought about that, great crit, thats definatly something thats missing from mine compared to other peoples stuff. i will try that out (filling the page then erasing) soon. any ideas on how to make sketching less of an effort? some things i really enjoy but im finding it hard to be creative and let loose right now, dont know why. i feel canned, restricted. really really need to let loose!

    really didnt think the verticals were that bad ah well

    got some felt tips and some watercolour pencils for christmas and trying to experiment with them but ive got no time at the minute because ive got exams and am finding it difficult to dedicate any time to my drawing, which is tres annoying

    ill be back soon!

    im starting to question each line i make more because i seem to rub out so many that are wrong. but i sort of need the to show general form which i cant get right first time so i do a bad line then see how it really is, then correct and rub out initial line. im guessing this is sort a training my eye and line quality. with the figures i definately have an associated image in my brain of a body which i would draw if it was 2d and straight on, but when i tilt and turn the body im not sure of the form as much. i know what would happen to cube or sphere just not human body, guess thats the whole point of studies
    thanks
