    Chr's sketchbook | 16th February

    hello everybody!

    Welcome to my sketchbook. Feel free to critique or leave comments, or just have a look. I dont have much drawing and painting experience, but have taken some life drawing classes. Lately i have been reading a lot and made some studies. I have also taken a sketching course recently.

    Better things at the bottom, of course.

    Hey, I stole your sketchbook virginity!
    Anyway, this thing's off to a nice start. There's a good variety of stuff in here. I like that giraffe/beetle, and the face on the first image is excellent. I actually prefer the falling razor idea to your current CoW. It's a strange idea, and a pretty cool image, and with a good description behind it, it would be very interesting. Your newer entry is good, anyway. However, the color saturation in the shadows is too high. Shift it over to the grayer side of the spectrum (not too gray!), and it'll be good.
    My main crit at the moment is to clean up your style a bit. Try some softer, more subtle strokes on your next pencil sketch, and make the edges a bit harder and clearer in your digital work.
    You're off to a pretty good start! I'll be checking back.

    Wow! These drawings are quite strong. Very nice.
    Some crits: That red guy that became your avatar is not positioned clearly in space. He looks to be about the same distance from us as the "Dr. Mek" sign, yet he's standing right on the horizon line. The chair painting is dark and moody, and I like that feeling, but I still think that there should be a bit more contrast between the chair and the background.
    You need some more comments in your sketchbook! My advice would be to just visit as many other sketchbooks as possible, and hopefully they'll return the favor.
    Nice update!

    an orthographic I thought I would use for the character of the week activity, but it took another direction.

    Liking the bust study and the animals. Great stuff with the ortho too. He looks a little plain to me though. But consitant none the less. Keep it up.
