Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
I've been lurking around here for a few months now and I figured it was about time for you guys to make fun of my art. So, here's to the beginning of a hilarious friendship.
First off, I'd like to thank everyone running this place and everyone posting here. This place is a great source of inspiration for a chump like myself, and it's gotten me to pick up the pencil again and seriously consider using it.
I've got a lot to learn. Join me, won't you? Crapfest ahoy!
I tried out Sketchbook Pro the other day. Very nice little program. Here are a few doodles from that session:
Some pencil anatomy studies. First 2 are from a Jeno Barcsay book, and then a Bridgeman leg study.
A couple head shots from a magazine and a couple Bridgeman hands.
And then, some mindless doodles. This is what I'm usually doing, brainless drawing. I've never really taken the learning side to drawing too seriously, so it feels like I haven't progressed in years (of course, there were years where I just didn't draw either). Been spinning my wheels for too long. But, that is going to change. So here's some recent stuff drawn with a ballpoint pen.
Thanks for looking.
Wow! this stuff is sweet. post more
I like where you're going with your art, looks like you have had some sort of training, keen to see more with colour in it!

Gumbies Assasin - Thanks! I will post more, right now.
Dstudio - Thanks for the comment. Yeah, I need to do more with color. I'm usually just playin around with lines in b&w. I'm self taught, other than a few classes in high school and the ever prestigious community college in my area. Can't say I learned much in those classes though. I've learned the most from the usual suspects, Hogarth, Bridgeman, and How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way.
More of the same in Sketchbook Pro
An arm doodle in Painter. I'm still trying to get a hang of it.
And a pencil sketch of the late, great Art Blakey. From a record I had lying around. It almost looks like him.
I'm liking these. You have a style or something that's comming through. Really makes it seem like you know what you are doing. Keep using the pencil!
More random garbage:
A bunch of doodles and the "finished" piece for a drawing tournament over at Sketchtavern.com. Yeah, I lost first round. Didn't quite get to where I wanted it to be, as I'm very good at procrastination and almost forgot about the deadline. The subject was a Japanese Kami (deity) from the BC era. Naturally, I chose Inari, the Kami of Rice. So, it's supposed to be some old man with a sack of rice and 2 white foxes. I think the expression and sack turned out alright.
helloo , wow love the little studys you did with the old man and the foxes everything here looks like it has alot of potential. keep it up
Love the bird in your first sketch mate - well done - looking forward to seeing more!
The bodies you draw look very good. And you have some nice flow in your pictures (example being the eagle looking bird in your first post as dimitri pointed out). Great stuff man.
Your drawings are amazing!
And I agree with Sepulverture. Your lines have a really nice flow. Also I like the fact you don't seem to have much difficulty to create different facial structures. I loved your characters!
i do love the fox sketchs. loose but not too loose that they are messy. Plus i am loving anatomy studies. keep on posting man.
Hello GHill! Interesting stuff! You seem to be looking for some sorta' guidance. Like you don't know were to go from were you are now. Or maybe you have a clue but don't know what steps to take? That is just what it seems like to me. . . I noticed you have a lot of stuff from the imagination. However, you need to feed your imagination with experience. Draw from life! I wanna' see some life drawings! It does'nt have to be figures either. Just start drawing from life more, please! Hope you will post some . . . .
I like the confidence of your lines. The first set of sketches is my favourite.
Man! It has been almost a month since your last post! Where the hell are you!
