    This is the old shitty sb, check out the new one for more! (link in my sig) - d.

    First sketchbook nya.

    Go to page 3 for recent updates!

    I joined an art academy this year and the drawing class has been phenomonal. Started drawing for the first time in charcoal and i love it. Plus I've been looking into graphite and creating motion in pictures with it. These are humble beginnings, and i'm set to improve tremendously.

    Anyways - all these have been photographed - not scanned. This resulted in some cool colour schemes with the graphite drawing when correcting contrast and adding minor effects. The charcoal drawing have remained unchanged except for contrast corrections here and there.

    Graphite. Trying to emulate some motion.

    And finally an unreferenced nude. Wierd, I know. And sorry about the hand.

    Crits and comments would be appreciated.

    Hey - you had a look in my sketchbook, figured I'd take a look at yours!

    I think your attempt at motion in that first one was pretty good - I saw motion in it before I read your statement. And the texture of the sky is cool.

    The charcoal rendering of the glass items is nice too - the marbles are especially effective. The candleholder in the stillife seemed a bit odd to me - but as you said, it's a WIP.

    The final critique would probably be that anatomy needs more practice, but I am sure you know that - and who am I to mention that anyway, with my lousy anatomical knowledge. Still, I prefer to be honest. Just keep this post in mind for when I go back to drawing from life, and bash me over the head with it

    See you around -oj

    Well
    According to me,It doesnt matter what media you use ,the priority should be first the basics then you should try the effects.
    Even I think the the sky in the first one looks good, but the the focus isnt on basics,the anatomy is a bit off and the foreshortening is not done properly and the the rocks and the ground could have also been given ths same kind of effect like the sky.
    The second one has almost the same strong and weak points.
    The life drawings from charcoal are looking very nice , no crit there.
    the nude has again the problem of anatomy and body proportions but the atmosphere created made me think of Popbot(Donno why).
    Keep posting.

    Hey,

    thanx for the crits and comments, man.

    katsgod: thnx. Checked out your sketchbook - neat stuff, man.

    OJ: thnx for the advice. I like to think that everyone is in a position to crit art, so don't feel guilty about the anatomy crit: you are perfectly right.

    bhanu: You! are so right! I never even noticed that i had strayed from the focus - i got so obsessed with the sky i completely neglected the rest.

    Much the thing with the nude, but a different effect: i took the arm for granted and didn't see it through. As for the rest of the anatomy: it does need a lot of refinement, i agree. Just hope Mentler doesn't stumble onto it(though i should actually).

    thanx again. be seein you guys around...

    - d.

    Yo, hari.

    thanx, but just because your only 14 or an inexpierenced artist doesn't mean you can't give crits (did i misunderstand?). EVERYONE is in a position to crit art, mkay?

    thnx again,

    - d.

    I don't know, I don't know that you do need crits. I really like the still lifes, especially the broken bottle and the 3 marbles, and that last page of the items is very well done. If anything, I might suggest slowing down, regarding the last image. Slow down and gently build the tones with the charcol, it looks like you are tring to get the drawing out of the way too quickly.

    nice still lifes - shadowing on your nudes seems a bit arbitrary, more like your just reinforcing the lines.

    keep it up

    Hey demented, one thing that strikes me when looking at your analytical drawings vs your figures, along the lines of what setmonkey said, is that maybe you should try rendering your forms with tone, NO LINES! (WHATsoever...) - it's especially effective on the human body (and other curvy, irregular shapes).

    I did an art foundation course some years ago and we were never allowed to use lines or crosshatching, only softsoftsoft application of tones with the pencil / charcoal. If you haven't try it out and see if it works for you.

    EDIT: Awww dude, the thing you did with the leaves - and even the stillife - that's what I was talking about. Nice one ohjay...sooo observant. Hey, it's not 0800 am yet!
