Ok it seems like you are already paying attention to alot of the fundamentals such as negative space (contrast), values, line qualities. That's awesome! How you will advance in no time. I also like the fact that you are paying attention to the general shapes of the subject you are drawing.
When it comes to faces (I am guessing that's what you want to focus on), just do references at least as often as you piss. Do it until you think you have memorized all facial features. Do you sometimes listen to a song so much you are so tired of it that you just want to die the next time you hear it because you have it imprinted into your brain? Yea, draw references until you feel like that.
hey nice to see you are up... how long does it typically take for you to finish a sketch? I only ask because i learned a lot from just focusing on ONE sketch for an hour... it does things to your frame of reference when you draw... Holla back.
Through a torrent of tears,
and a sea of pain,
fools made wise,
from their folly refrain.
Love the last ones face but perhaps but a little more variation in the tones... same goes with the 1st picture the shadows are a little weird especially under the eyes... Other than that... I think I almost cried in fear when i saw the clown ^_^ good stuff! keep it up!
Actually I wasn't drunk when i drew this, i just had no idea what to call my thread ;-) . Yeah, I have tried it (who didn't? ;-) )by well, drawing drunk doesn't really help you to come up with something good.
Thanks for the kind replys anyways. Threeeyesworm Thanks, yes heads is what i'm most concentrating on at the moment, right now I'm feeling that I slowly get to know what it looks like (sounds silly ) aeoxo Well, it depends. the bottom pic was 5 to 10 minutes i think, but the top page could be an hour, i think... I think it's hard to concentrate a full hour on the same pic. ZebzFree hehe, no Styler Thanks blkn Lol, your comment really made me laugh. Yeah, of course it can be funny, but i doubt that great pieces of art are created that way ;-) Erilaz Thank you! I'll do my best*g* (vacations are coming up ) Jworion Glad you like it Yes, i see your point on the shadow, i dunno how it happed to get there, i don't think it was on the photo (unnatural...) ZebzFree Yes, I'm a tragic character, sooooooo sad hehe, don't worry about me...
PS: SSG-mates, I'll post in your sketchbooks later, gotta go - get something to eat now --- embee hates hunger! ugaaaa!
Great start here, like the faces. At the moment, i dont really feel like i can crit anything. But, when your draw more and post more, i will. I really like your sytle(by the way, can u make my name, in your signature like this---->Qxzi's) Very picky
I felt like I could post some of today's scribbling in here. For some reason the Scans look fucked up as hell, but i don't know why...
Left side out of my head, hands from real life (my left one)
All from reference
I gotta find out why the scanned images look that shitty...
Edit: Ok, I just found out, that I didn't push the tones hard enough... I compared these to some others that scanned well, and I see now, that the prblem is in the pics themselves... Maybe I'll go back to them and correct that, but not now - time to go to bed
