    First sketchbook(attempt) UPDATED APRIL 2ND

    Hey everyone, I'm Kevin 19 years old (left handed) and I just love drawing, I just suck at it...
    That's why i'm starting a sketchbook , so i can get C&C from people who are actually good at it.
    I posted them in chronological order.

    First sketchbook(attempt) UPDATED APRIL 2ND

    This one is inspired by a fellow sketchbooker here on this forum, i hope he/she doesn't mind.(if so, PM and i will put it offline)

    I know i'm way off with the hips (it's supposed to be a female)

    Welcome to CA, or the sketchbook section, anyway.
    Anatomy studies are good, I like the arm muscle and bone studies. Just watch the proportions of what you draw a little closer. The hands look very short. Keep studying planes like you're doing in the 2nd sheet from the bottom, they will help you get a better understanding of form and how light falls on it. Keep it up!

    You seem to be just drawing part by part (that one lady just keeps getting smaller and smaller when looking her from head-to-toe)... Watch out for that. Sketch the whole figure first, then go on into details.

    Hey, good start!

    I see you got some loomis and Hogarth in there...good job!
    Some points -

    -draw from life as much as possible...even if it seems boring
    -try to feel the edge of the object you are drawing or image its a road on which you are driving your car...this is just a way to fully "see" the edge
    -draw everyday...
    -do it now or never
    -compare one aspect of your object to another to get the proportions right
    -compare angles to each other

    Hope that helps!

    Hey just another commenter here, looking good on the studies, keep it up! Chandan's got some good advice to follow, too. For proportions, check out what they have in any anatomy book - they'll probably give a lot of tips: ears/nose line-ups, eye widths, general facial stuff - and after the basics it's going to take a lot of practice on faces (and specific features) from life and reference and at all sorts of angles. Practice! Practice! Practice!

    You're already off to a great start, this part of the process is pretty tedious, but that's why we have the support group Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain has been an enormous help, it's a book I suggest you pick up. If you're having a hard time with faces, get a good picture of someone (National Geographic is great), turn the book upside down, and draw it that way. Force your mind away from thinking about drawing a mouth or an eye, just think about this line in relation to this line, and how far away is it from that line? It saves you from the nasty habit of drawing things the way you think they should be and making them the way they are.
    Some nice eyes up there, and keep drawing your hands! Don't forget to date your drawings, so you can go back and see the difference.

    Nice going. Pick up a good book or two and practice - not much more to say, really

    Madfishmonger, I really like that idea. I'll try it out later today.

    The best thing I can say is keep practicing but the work I’ve seen show that you have potential.

    not bad, not bad at all. the only advice I can give you is to draw each day and every time you can. you have a 30 minutes break to eat ? take your lunch , a pencil and your book. try to see why something is made in this way and not in an other. look people around you. If you are in a particular state of emotion, try to draw it. if you are frustrated or relaxe, you will see it. the mind is mysterious and emotions are misunderstood most of the time.

    keep like this, you are on the good way.

    ( I almost forgot: I hope you take a look at mentler's work, it is hallucinating and very instructive )
