Serp's occasionally updated Sketchbook!
Ok, so I've finally decided to start a scetchbook! I'm a newbie when it comes to art (actually, when it comes to anything), and I hope this will help me as much at it seems to help many others on this site!
I didn't go as far as to think I could manage a daily scetchbook, so I'm making it "biweekly". With the quotationmarks. I will not have strict uploading days, but try to post AT LEAST twice a week. Please reply!
So... Okay I will start with some older things I've already posted elsewhere on this forum, but since the threads are long dead, I'll repost them. New stuff later.
I hate my scanner - good thing I've started to photograph my drawings.
Faces, faces, faces...
And for those who have already seen those above:
More later! Leave a comment!

considering you are, as you have said, a newbie, i think the first picture is pritty good. In fact all of them look good for a newbie. I think you are on the right track so far, so all you've really got to do is keep drawing! Maybe get some books on human anatomy as that will really help progress your drawings further! But so far not bad!

Good start, man. You've got a good handle on value and shading. Hold onto that as much as you can. Make "less is more" your mantra for shading. It's always easier to darken an image some more than it is to lighten it up. Sure you can erase, but why backtrack when you don't have to.
http://www.saveloomis.org has some great anatomy techniques. There are a few golden rules that you can get down that once you learn, you'll never forget them.
Anyway, keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing more.

Well, this is off to a good start! Two updates and I forget the thread for a week! Not much scribbling the last days, due to school ending, tests, and that stuff. No classes to draw during.
Thanks for your replies folks! Shading is a thing I've been thinking on too, seems like I subconciously try to avoid it... Mostly because of me using a mechanical pencil I suppose.
So, here's the update!
First up is some more doodling-gesturing-fun!
With the new GW Wood Elves release, I just had to make a Wardancer... I see now how screwed up that leg is though...
I like this one.
Colour pencil fun.
Keep Commenting, please!

Hokay. Enough of this Cristmas brake crap. Back to school, back to my scetchbook. No more lazy-ass-ing. Probably.
I've left this book lying too long, and it's about bloody time for an update!
First up, some skulls. None are referenced, though all should be. Oh, well...
A portrait scetch. I didn't get the likeness, but the practice...
Templar stuff... There's nothing cooler than templars. And ninjas. And pirates and mummies, batman, godzilla and samurai and dragons!
More coming soon! Promise!

These are a good start. You've def got potential if u keep up the practice. Rememvber to not neglect studies and life drawng though. Get loomis from the net and practice some anataomy. Keep it up
