A resurrected sketchboooook.
Here be a sketchbook, yay.
My drawing skills are lacking so here is an attempt at not being lazy and doing everything else instead.
must have... thumbnail... picture.

so slow at drawing...
self portrait sans glasses, trying to use more organized shading insted of the scribbling I usually do
noses, nose-owl and lions mane jellyfish
...and attention span gone.
please excuse the scan quaility, it dosen't know any better.
spent toooo much time on this, hence why it is better than everything else here.

Finals are now over so now for some more really boring sketches woo! go left hand go!
I reallly need to get into the habit of drawing moooore. prehaps in the future I shall look back at these measly begginings and chortle....
this is a random idea drawn on the bus, I will eventually expand on it.
must start working on figures, it's a real weak point. Any information anyone wants to throw at me would be very welcome.

I love the guy on the second picture in the second post! Funkay hair! and that birds killer cool!
With figures i'm not the best placed for giving advice but the ladys head on the second to last piece is slightly too big for the body i think and your hand work is great! keep at it! It makes me want to do my hand drawing practise!

hinky doodle - thanks, and you know you want to do hand studies, all the cool kids are doing it.
some sketches for the teen thunderdrome. I probably will not get to finish (or start) it before deadline but the idea was this zombie cowboy realized that the common folk ran away from him because he was quite obviously a zombie, he decided to try to trick them by looking like a normal person. He did this by chopping off a live person's head and pretending it was his own. For some strange reason this was not enough to fool the common person. He still wanders around looking for spare brains.
quick sketches of a bird skeleton, same bird from the work up above in the other post
and two random stiffly posed human-like man creatures.
going to try to develop my drawings more..

The best advise i can give you right now (if you whish to progress), is to expand upon your knowledge base. That basically means: Study study study. Go here, download all the books, read them, study and try out different aproaches. Theese are the basics and they are fundamental for sucsessful drawing.

Hey, nice start. Your paintings reveal a good intuition about composition and tone. Your drawings are revealing that you have a lesser understanding of volume and form. The Loomis books posted by n0fish are highly recommended. BTW, what are you hoping to improve your drawing skills for? Is there a particular field you're interested in? That would help us to give meaningful critiques. Keep posting.My Sketchbook

Hey Ocotpus! You've got a nice sketchbook going on here, Make sure to keep it updated!
Listen to n0fish, he's got some great advice right there for ya. But most importantly keep the pencil burning. Bring it all over, where ever you are, and draw!
all the best,

A general note on the proportions: many of your characters look like they'd been stretched vertically so you could draw the shoulders and hips broader. As others have said, you should read Loomis. Filling A4s with tiny figures has also helped me to learn the proportions. Looking forward to see you develope.

Hi octopus. I'm liking some of your gesture drawing ( thread of may 7th), they seems to be natural and not bad proportions. I don't know how much time u practice everyday, but If you are the first to say that you need the habit to draw more, then draw more! Anyway, I'm lazy as well, and I give u this suggestion. I realized that I got to be in the right concentration to start drawing. But when I get this concentration, I could keep on drawing for a week without sleeping. The point is : don't frustate yourself thinking " I have to draw for 2 hours today!" ...Just sit in and start scribbling when u have some free time, and see if you get the right mood after a while.
Keep working mate, see u
