    Go to page 7 for latest images. Welcome!

    Short introduction: I starded this sketchbook when I where 18 years old. I have always liked art and drawing but I wanted to begin in earnest, and thought it would be a great idea to post my images here, where I could get some feedback on my work.
    Now I'm 21 and as far as I know I have tried to be serious about this. Ofcourse there is days when you're not in the mood of drawing but I did my best, and I'll continue that way. Im very thanksfull for all the help I can get, and I hope you will enjoy my journey thru the lovely way of art. And one more thing: A womans anatomy is the most adoreble thing in the world. Thanks.

    Looks like a nice start

    I would say the lips of the first girl need a little work on the shadow.

    Hi again.
    Hope you guys had have a good vacation and a happy new year!
    My promise for this year is too draw more. much much more
    Here are some samples from my sketchpad. usually done with a HB-B2 pencil.
    not too satisfied with them, but good practise.

    more sketches.
    Practicing some rendering options. the first girl needs more overall shadow and her lips look odd, like she's "sniffing".
    reference used. and 10-20min isn't correct. it's more like 30-40 minutes i have spended on her. pencil used: 4B

    Hey Motives,
    You have some nice sketches here. It is good that you are doing anatomy studies. Keep those up. It looks like you need some work on hands. Use your own and try drawing them in different positions. The navel on the last girl is a bit high. It should be approximately 1 head height below the level of her nipples. When shading, don't be afraid to push the values farther. The rear view of the girl has mostly midtones. Try expanding that to farther ends of the range. Keep drawing and posting. There is lots of promise here. One good thing to do is to try to crit your own stuff. When you post it, tell us what you think you did correct and what you think you did wrong. It will help you to learn to crit yourself better and how to crit other works effectively.

    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    Thanks for the long comment hyland.
    It's very informative and i really appreciate it!
    oh, i didn't know that about the head. thanks for the tip!
    when I study my pictures I notice that you are all right about the shadows.
    what it needs is more contrast..
    I think i will draw some hands today, and add some critics =)

    Todays lesson: hands! 10 minutes each, maybe.
    i think that the last one went out pretty good..except the ring finger on the left hand..and the thumb on the right, they are just too big. darn it! hehe =)
    next time i will try some rendering too.

    Looks promising mate! You're doing great progress. some crits on the hands.

    On the first sheet, the fingers seems to start a bit high, and seem alittle to thin, but overall nice! Also think of the flow of the curves, so you avoid the straight lines that appear just slightly on the fingers, more "organic" feeling would be good, if you loosened up a bit more maybe

    The thumbs do look great overall, no big crit there. On the second piece the top of the fingers seems to have some odd shape, i cant tell what the error is, maybe just the size or proportion, but overall great work for the time you spent! Keep it up!

    Erik

    Thanks erik!

    I indeed on the organic feeling. it just isn't there. maybe it will appears next time=)

    when you mention it, i think i have done a minor wrong at my fingertips. they are not that pointed as i have drawed them. and i just notices that my ring finger looks VERY odd on the left hand at the last piece

    hey motives just wanted to come check out your sketchbook, you have some nice studies going on. Just keep studing anatomy and practicing as much as you can their's alot of online resources like Loomis let me know if their's anything I can help you with. Oh and definately check out Gaboartpage's sketchbook it has some great GREAT studies it'll give you and idea of how to go about or rather another way to go about doing study's (and its pages and pages loooong) Keep posting !

    Thanks vctr for the politess reply :]
    yes, loomis is very good to study! i have some of his books on my pc but havent checked them out really but i certainly will!
    I took a fast prewiev in Gaboart's sketchbook. It looks very promising!

    and yes, i took some pictures of my clay-heads i have worked with in school. I will say that i have done some progress since the first one (2005).
    used my classmates to get the right proportions and reference pictures to the ears (haved some struggle with them)
    maybe the nose is too "uppy" and pointed but there is probably people with those kind of noses too..
    the latest(2006) head isn't burned yet. (hope it will not shattering in the oven)

    I like the pencil sketches. I would say try to do some dark shadows and some not this dark. I mean try to do some soft transition in the shadow but try to get really dark. Try to define dark and bright areas a little more

    I cannot tell you something to your heads because I have no idea on sculpting.

    Thank you thomasK . hmm i think i know what you mean..i will try some shadowing later. and we will see how it will be (we, rhyme!)
    its okay, thank you anyway!

    Here is a face i found in school when i was cleaning up.
    I think i drawed it in the middle of 2005. anyways, here are som crits:
    the nose and the lips are far to low, as showed on the right pic. (or as hylandr2 said: the forhead is too big. which is true)
    it's as simple as that =)
    but i must say that im pretty pleased with the picture overall for not having any ref when i drawed it.

    one more from school. it's a charcoal drawing of a stormy ocean, no ref used.
    it looks really good from distance but when you are close you can easily see errors.

    Ok second time I have to rewrite the posting seems to be a little grumpy

    Nice studies

    Beware of the eyes though....In your eye studies you show the sphere of the eye (the eyeball) but in your other drawings you tend to take a step back and loose the volume by drawing the eyes in a 2d almond shape.

    Keep going.

    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    As far as proportions go, I have also seen the following as a guide. The eyes should be at or a bout a line 1/2 the distance from the top of the head to the chin. The bottom of the nose is then 1/2 the distance between the eye line and the chin. The lips are then at or about 1/2 the distance between the bottom of the nose and the chin. In your drawing, those proportions hold up except that the top of the head is too big. Keep up those studies!

    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    Mindflaw: thank you. yes, when you mention it I realized it too. have to think more threedimentional when I'm drawing, that goes for all(!)

    Hylandr2: yes that is true! I saw that i have done a major mistake when i desided to move the nose and the lips, when the forhead was the part making the face unproportionate. thanks for the correction tip!

    Today we starded our individual task in school. I chose to draw a still life (a classic, "fruits in bowl").
    first off is charcoal. worked with it 1-1,5 h maybe. i couldn't get all the greyscales right but I'm pretty pleased with it anyway. oh, and I happen to spray it little to much.. Next time I will draw it in graphite and after that maybe I'll go on with oilpaint or acrylic (btw, I have made the bowl and it is that skew)

    The still life looks good. You seem to be missing the shadow from the bowl. You light source is coming from the right side, so there should be a shadow on the table to the left.

    Just as a happy friendly note. I presume English is a second language for you? The past tense of draw is "drew" or "have drawn" and not drawed. The past tense of choose is "chose" or "have chosen".

    Keep up the good work man.

    Thank you hylandr2. yes you are totally right, english is a second language for me
    I guess your right about the shadow. I finish it too fast:/

    Got my "drawing of the right side on the brain"-book today and I decided to draw a self portrait. I have tried it once and it was pain in the a''. Anyways I did one and I really liked it!
    It took about 2,5-3 h whitch I think is too much but you gonna start somewhere. There is some minor wrongs like too little mouth and eyes but people who has seen it says it's alike..and i got to trust them
    It's not finish yet and I was to tired to do it.

    Motives, this is a really nice sketch. Good compostion. Couple little things. You indicate that her heas is turned slightly, but her nose does appear turned as much as the rest of her head. There is a stray shadow around her armpit that is difficult to determine what it is. And this one is alway told to me, keep in mind that the eyes are spheres underneath and try to make sure that it comes across that way. Right now, they look a bit oblong without indication of the anatomy beneath. In this sketch, it isn't really a big deal, but tjust keep that in mind for more rendered one.
