Ling's Boring Sketchbook (updated four years later)
ATTN: CHECK LAST PAGE FOR NEWER DRAWING.
1 I did this a week or two ago... It's a picture of my sis. Personally I think she looks too old. She's only 7. O_o; I think it might be something to do with her head shape. And it's not round enough. ;_;
2 Bubble gum!
3 I did that a day after the above picture. I think there's some wrong the the lips... I'm not sure how to make it look like a lip. o_o
4 Character concept. Name's Eclair and she's 13 years old.
5 Another character concept! o_O Doka! Yay for my fire breathing lizard! yay for more inking practice!
Click. Blah. Took to much space. =[
more later. -.-' photo bucket's hating me!

6 Printing? O_o Lithagraphy. o_O I'm not sure what's it's called. D:! It has something to do with craving out something and then puting ink on it...The letter's are my friends.... The character's mine! I created the character sometime like a couple of years ago. ^^; 100% traditional.
7 Me! Slightly better shading. P=
8 No reference with this. I had the art teacher to fix it. -.-' I'm not sure it's quite right. ^^;

welcome to the forums
#1 doesn't look quite right like you said, you already covered it though.
#2 The eyes are a bit high and his neck is too narrow for his head...it almost looks like a bobblehead. His pupils and eye lids could be darker also. His lips are off like you said and the bubble gum ...I dunno...it just doesn't look right.
#3 That's not a bad drawing i just think it's hilarious that you drew yourself with that kind of expression
#7. I guess the picture that you drew of yourself is best thing you've posted so far.
that's all I could think of. Keep posting!

sister's portrait- I like this picture a lot she has a subtle smile and the cross hatching on the face is really interesting and nice. I don't know what your sister looks like but I would assume that the chin you drew is too broad, it's very chiseled, kind of heroic looking. You have the same chin in your next pic, but it looks more appropriate on a guy. Her neck may be a bit too wide as well.
Bubble Gum - The eyes and nose seem too high on the face in this one. Also the eyes look like they are aiming outward and they may be a bit too far apart. Eye's are usually one length apart, there are of course exceptions, but mostly it's true. Bubble Gum is a challenging thing to tackle in a pencil drawing without color, personally I would push it further if I was going to draw that. Making his cheeks puffed out in a blowing manner, making the bubble twice as big and maybe make him corss-eyed, focusing on the gum. The shirt collar is nicely rendered.
Portrait #3 - Once again, the neck seems a little too wide. The shading on the nose is awesome though. The problem with the mouth is the hard edge around the lips, that line should be softer, and then a little harder at the edges of the mouth. Also the top lip in this lighting situation might look better if it was a shade or two darker overall compared to the bottom lip. I might also make the shadows on the left side of the image darker, right now it is a little too even across the face and it sort of flattens it out a bit. One trick to try is to look at your subject and squint, or defocus your eyes so the look blurry. When you do this you can see the difference in shadow value more obviously. Do the same at your picture to see if you've matched the drama. When lighting the people you are drawing the more dramatic the light, the easier it is to capture often.
Overall comments on portraits - You are doing a really great job capturing differences and personality in your portraits, one thing to try to add more depth and interest is to try and draw some people from a 3/4 view, it's much easier to make them look 3D and shadows look much more interesting. Look up "portrait photography" on google to see how professional photographers layout their shots to see what I mean.
Love the concept pic! Super cute. The dragon is even better. Is there a story behind them?
Dead Bunny - Very cool, good layout, nice textural quality. It doesn't need it but it might be fun to add some color in photoshop, mayeb some dark red.
Self-portrait - very nice, good angle, I love the rough box around it too. Your hair on the right of the pic could be darker especially around the ear, and my comments earlier about lips could apply here.
The boxer - I like the feeling of this one. His punching hand might be tilted towards him a bit too much though It should more be the same angle as his forearm. A background would be cool for this one.
The pastel drawings - very cool, great style and colors. Very cute pics.
The underwear studdies - These are cool and a great thing to practice. Do tons of these! Look up the book "Drawing comics the Marvel way" for some fun figure drawing info.
The BF - really nice shading, but I still think that the eyes are a bit too far apart.
The monster - This is your coolest cartoon pic so far.I love how the eyes look in different directions.
The fashion pics - great costume studies, your line weight on these is really nice as well.
This is a great start to your sketchbook! I really look forward to watching it grow. Keep up the fantastic work.--------------------------------

Wow. Very in-dept and helpful too. ^_^;
*One thing I didn't notice was the the whole BIG broad chin things. It's not like I didn't have problems with it. o_O; I just didn't notice the whole chin being very alike on each of them. And now to fix them.... And adding varation to them. o.o Blah.
*Ya. There's a huge story behind the two characters that I put up. (They're the characters from that children's comic. that I wrote about in the pm. =/) I'm just vaguely putting in it in words. I know where they're born, their past, their pesent and the furture. ^_^ I know how they act like and etc. I created them, I should know. XD For the girl, I'll be drawing her in another style. I don't like her circle eyes as eyes and she just doesn't fit in the world as the human race. =/ Blah.
* as for getting some areas more darker. I'm using a 6b pencill for shading in the dark spot. >_< And it's not getting any darker. O_O; If I pressed any harder... it'll rip the page. o.o; That would be bad. I'll find a way to get it darker one of these days.
* I'm forcusing one thing at a time. The frontal view and the side view. =/ I know I'm having trouble with where the eyes are supposed to be and aligning them so it's straight on the paper. >.<
Yep. That's what I have to say. End of comment. O_o

Probably off topic and totally unrelated to my sketch book.... but it's ART!
Anyways for the last few days, I have been busy with painting on fabric. I'm actually very proud of my self with these.
20 It has glitter and it's shiney. Strapless dress
21 So I painted my backpack to match my dress.
22 I hate fruit baskets with passion. I hate it! I dispise it. I dislike it! I unlike it. I UNlove it. Is there anymore ways I can say I hate Fruitbaskets. My shirt says so. It's a zombie kyo... (I hope he gets runover by the billion and trillions of fangirl.)

this is all coming along nicely, i really like you printing/lothography stuff! cool, simple, effective designs!
you life drawing and such are lookin cool, keep at it, one thing i could suggest is that you have a go with a less forgiving broad medium, like charcoal. i get the feeling you are maybe overworking some of these drawings.... you seem to be filling in some of you "canvas" just because you feel the need to....
other than that, things are looking great!
you pastel stuff is cool, i can tell you have a good controll of that medium!
looking forward to the SSG thing..."the tenacious ten"

I hate charcoal. (period.) It gets all over the place, I got it over my hands, my shirt, my pants, my socks! OMG. EVIL.
And it smudges over my other drawings as well. =_=;
Meh. I'll post up my charcoal drawings later that I did last night. (They really suck.)
I'll stop whining about the charcoal now. I haven't gotten the hang of it yet. *disappers*
CRITCS PLEASE, PEOPLE!

Heh, nice glittery dress. I need one of those for myself. lol
You're doing a lot fo really great things! Just keep it up!! Draw as much from life as you can and do some anatomy structures. The keys to drawing convicning real life objects can be found in an understanding of understructure and knowing how to go about rendering those things. Just try to see the forms! Keep it up!

Hi SillyLing ^^, got a good sb going here. Im liking your figure studies, but feel you could make improvements quick if you really concentrate on drawing those figures.
Have a look at anatomy and forms. Try to really remember what you are seeing and don't be afraid to draw all over your studies; such as drawing reference lines that show the position of features along it etc.
Shadows are really important, focus on their values, shapes and position and let them guide you. Lastly- don't forget negative spaces.
Hope this has been helpful ^^. Keep posting.

zebzfree: I'll sell it you for $1,545,457,862,155,654,021,545,024! HAH! Even Bill Gates can't buy it! Besides I'll need it for starting my own.... "business." (I wouldn't need to study art. I'll stay at home and play video games all day.) I'll be working on those under structures for the next few days.
Tullie: ^___^; One thing at a time. I'll be looking at anatomy..... ^_^; The problem is.... I get bored of looking at anatomy structure easily. *nods* But I'll be definely working on them during break! D: I have loads of free time! Wh0t for being a loser. I don't have any friends to distracts me from doing work. ='[ HAHA. Guess that's a good thing. O_o
I'll go and be friends with Mr. Loomis, over there.

^^ do things at any pace you want, your work shows potential, what I said was guidance and only that.
The important thing is to stay focused, but to not get bored ^^. Studying anatomy can be a drag at first, but the more practice = it gets easier and more fun ^^.
Happy xmas XD.
