    Thomas's Drawing challenge (update jan 26th)

    I'm quite new to drawing and I've decided to bite the bullet, and not only draw every day, but post the results here...

    There's no guarantee of quality. I'm going to post the bad and the good. Critiques, advice and comments are very much encouraged. Don't worry about hurting my feelings - I know I have a lot to learn.

    p.s. I probably won't post every day... I'll save it up, and post one/twice a week.


    Anyway, here's the first days drawing...

    Yo dude, looking good, only advice i can think of, and its something I need to do as well, is to try and make your lines cleaner. Try to use a single stroke if you can..hope that makes sense

    Oh and thanks for commenting in my sketchbook man!

    Keep at it dude!

    hey dude theres some good observation in those sketch's. I know you are trying to divy them up into shapes but like Arekkusu you should either go for a strict linear approach or you could try and draw the object ( hand foot whatever) from the inside out and break the shape down into 3D planes and not use ANY outlines and see what you can come up with. Its a fun exersize you come up with some pretty crazy drawings and its realy good for devloping your skills at observing and recording movement and expression

    Cool! Two reply's!

    Arekkusu: Thanks, man. I'll give it a try and report the results on tuesday.

    Gleeson: Interesting challenge... do you mean drawing just the outline of the planes with line, or go the whole hog and just draw tonal shapes w/out line at all?

    its hard to tell from the scans, but it seems you are using a hard pencil. you might try using a softer one too.

    only using hard pencils have been bad for me I know.

    CHR Hm... strange scans... The drawings I did last update were all Mars Marker 9b (not graphite, but a colour pencil I was trying out) which is the softest pencil grade I've ever used...

    The ones I'm uploading today are 2b graphite.

    Arekkusu Thanks for the link, man! I've quickly scanned it, and I'll read it in more detail latter...

    The last three days have been a bit "Blah" in terms of drawing... It just did not want to co-operate

    Hey, the line studies are looking good. I'm not sure if its the quality of the pictures but the your lines aren't very clear. Try to be more confident in your linework and you will see the difference in quality.

    I'm still trying to learn so I can't crit as much as the other artists on here but the best advice i can give you is draw everything and anything.

    Anyway some nice variety of work, keep it up!

    Sanest Thanks! Yeah, I guess my linework isn't as clear as I'd want it. I'm working on that area at the moment.

    Don't worry that you're still trying to learn... if you see anything I can improve please tell me! I have a lot to learn myself...
