    Saimon's Sketchbook of Practice

    Hey everybody. My name is Saimon and I like to make 3D stuff. As such my traditional drawing skills have got a wee bit rusty in recent years, so I have decided to start this Sketchbook to brush up on them. Feel free to C&C it's the only way ill learn ^_^

    Heres the first of hopefully many



    Im having problems with lips so any tips would be very helpful.

    Traditional drawing skills, or just drawing skills? (If you want to work on traditional, you'll get recommendations to head back to using a pencil and paper =D) The face looks pretty good for proportions and whatnot from what I can see. Perhaps you can learn about hatching - it does not look like you're quite shading along the contours/planes and that does flatten stuff out, like the edges of her forehead.

    Always a good idea to brush up on traditional skills. I can say that in my experience the better I'm able to draw, the better I'm able to model in 3d. You've got a good start here. The structure of the face feels a little off- you can notice that the center of the nose doesn't quite line up with the center of the lips or chin. Also, the eye that should be further back is actually a bit larger. Since you're working digitally, make another layer underneath where you just block in the basic forms out of cubes and spheres. Make sure that this part feels totally accurate before you start with the details. Hope to see more of your work.

    Good start , I would advice you to do some reference drawing, On paper!
    and really looking at what you drawing, not what you THINK you drawing.
    Study Proporations and so oN!, but yeah, Good start!

    Heya, Si, these are looking good. The last one of the dog is the strongest so far, imo, though there's something about the neck/head and the area where the back legs and torso meet which isn't reding properly. I can't tell why exactly 'cause I don't have the ref. It looks good though!

    Just a general crit: everything's looking rather rigid at the moment. Instead of blindly drawing straight lines for limbs like legs, have a good look at them and mark down the overall form rather than the outline, if that makes sense.

    Have fun~ ^_^
