    Update: 03/11/07 ---- LEWIS

    Hi there
    I honestly dont know why i opened this thread, while being surrounded by artworld most gifted and experienced people, but here it goes:
    Im Lewis, 17 years old and living in the tiny and grey country of the Netherlands.
    I recently signed in to an arteducation. Made some admissionassignments, and now im awaiting the response. When its positive i get invited for a conversation where i show off my portfolio.
    And there we come to my main reason to open this thread. I hope u guys can help me improve my portfolio.

    So here we go:

    Cute dog, draw more of him. In general just do more from life. From what I hear life drawings are what most art schools are interested. Also drawing alot from life is arguably the best way to learn how to draw representationally plus it's alot of fun. So if you want my advice, draw as much as you can from life and use your best stuff in your folio.

    Thank you for visiting my SB
    You work with a wacom? Try to make more exactly lines, use smaller brushes and try to improve your coloration skills. Have a look at some tutorials.
    But before: Try to practice anatomy and figures. It's hard to learn and it needs much time but I think you'll get it.
    The dog sketches look good, lifedrawing is a great practice
    Keep it up

    Pugs! Boogieman is dead on, draw from life. Anything and everything around you. I lived in Holland when I was in junior high and high school and I took a lot of after school lessons in oil painting and life drawing and um, ceramics too. It was a ton of fun.

    Tnx for the comments ^^

    Boogieman > Tnx, ill definately do some more from life drawings (and some more pugs ). Kinda weird u like drawing from life so much, because i prefer drawing from my mind. But i have to admit drawing from life/reference can help a man improve a lot.

    Guntrouver > Hey, np, i really loved watching ur sb. Be sure to update it! And yes i use a wacom (graphire 3 or somthing) and ive heard ur crit by some other people aswell, so i will try to change my wacombehaviour

    Wetterschneider > Especially for you, a selfportrait in this update And btw where do u live now? Im guessing some kind of englishspeaking country, seeing ur sentences.

    Here the selfportrait and some other doodles
    Update: 03/11/07 ---- LEWIS

    And my updated WiP, im kind of liking it

    Lewis - thanks for the comments in my SB!

    I like what you have going on here - I think you are doing very well for your age.... I didn't start to draw until I went to college!

    can't wait to see more - keep up the posts!

    Yep, I am an American, and I moved to Holland in 1979 and back to the US in 1984. It was a lot of fun, living there, and travelling around Europe. One of the things I like so much about CA is that so many people are from so many countries.

    Hi!
    I live in the netherlands my self!

    Cool sb! The Drawing with a pencil look great but you should work on your digitals a bit more. DO you use a tablet? if not you should It improves most of the guys who can draw with a pencil a lot!

    Hey there. Thanks for popping by my sketchbook and please come again if you will. The last sp of yours is definately your best one so far and that is the way you should be going. On yesterdays sp the features seem a bit distorted to me. I'm myself practising proportions, taking measurements and building the construction lines everyday and it's a very slow process and even more slow progress (at least it is for me). I hope you have access to a loomis book 'cause it has helped me a lot. See you again.

    So.... i didnt got invited to the arteducation i aplied for. Sad, but true.
    Ive not lost my hope, tho. Another arteducation has caught my eye, so we'll see if i can get my hands on that.
    This site also gives many hope, its great to see how people get into the artworld in many different ways, so an education is certainly not the only way.

    Anyway, worked a bit more on my COWentry
