Then Practice I shall!Originally Posted by Odayga
Drawing random objects is a cool practice cause it helps you to learn about the basic shapes in space (cube, cylinder, sphere and cone). I think you should establish those basic shapes in wich to inscribe your objects before actually drawing them. I.e. sketch lightly a cylinder with the correct proportions and placement in space, and then start to draw the deodorant(?) using that sketch. Right now some lines are getting wonky, like the deodorant being skewed and his concave right side. Try to get the construction right before starting to render your drawings.
Hope it helps.
odayga: grow up.
thanks fedezz for the advice
how old r u u dude gud start i was so like thth u should now go into basic figure work look at poses and body posture!!!!!!!!! get it on !!!!!!!!!!!! practice like mad and draw when ur bored cos 4 me it sseems to get better then when ur confident use new media best to try colour pencil then watercolour followed then by whtever u wnt i did the and my work is still improvung ur great keept it up!!!!!!!!and PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE!!!!!!

Yeah ok, I didn't quite understand a word you just said. But thanks anywayOriginally Posted by wahabs art
Not too bad, keep doing those still lifes. The pics could be a tad bigger, btw.
It seems like you're thinking in lines very much. Yes, it's handy to draw an outline of your project, but since light hits the object in question, it turns into something without lines and into something with edges. You might wanna check this thread to understand better what i'm talking about. This site is also very fun and full of information. Try to apply the info from those links into your work.
Keep it up!
its my drum-kit!
I don't know why when it scanned it turned an off-white colour
Hehe about that homework (needs to do maths homework)Originally Posted by BlueMech

I might recommend starting with line only.. Try to draw things as accuratley as possible with no shading. Try not to scribble the lines, really look, look 3 times at what you are drawng before you make a line. And try to no "pet" the lines (go back over them several times.) Just make a line that goes in one direction.. do this alot, and then move on to value scales, and then start shading.
But while you are shading, you gotta take into account;
Where is the lightsource? How intense is it? How far is it? etc.
A good thing to do when working with value is to smear pencil ALL over a page.. just ALL over it. Then draw something with lines, and use the eraser to show highlights, and then you can slowly shade deeper to make the darker areas.
other random hints;
Render (Shade) like a SLUG. DO NOT RUSH IT.
When you hatch, pick up your pencil each time. Draggin your pencil disrupts the 'flow' of the form.
Always shade across the form. Imagine the object as a 3d model, then imagine the wireframes that wrap around it... try, when hatching, to make the lines go paralell/perpendicular to that imaginary wireframe. This is called "Shading across the forms."
Good luck, I'll be back. Keep DRAWING!
Also, search for the sketchbook of MindCandyMan. (ON the sketchbook forum where you see all the sketchbooks listed, click on the underlined "Replies" column. His thread should be in the top 3, you can't miss it.)
ditto what pixel said...try to become a little more confident with your linework...force yourself to draw less lines, if it doesn't look right the first time, erase it, and start it again...etc...
drawing eggs for practice.
Pretty good lol. We kinda are at the same level.

I got frustrated with the face on the right and left it unfinished. Still doesn't looks right.
You know. Feel free to comment...
