Sketches, doodles, etc. [realitychek]
I'm sort of newer to CA, more of a lurker, but I want to start changing that and draw more and get come critiques, so that equals a sketchbook for me I guess
About me: I live in western new york, I'm 16 years old, and taking any and all art classes available (which is now less than I'd like, thanks to my school which doesn't believe in the importance of art )
I don't have a whole lot of experience in digital arts, my art teacher has photoshop on the art room computers, so any extra time goes there, and I'm currently saving up for photoshop or painter.....
alrighty then, to the sketches! Right now just exercises and, well, sketches. I'll have to get some pics of my finished stuff asap.
The scanner isn't the greatest, so some of the pics have blurrier areas where there aren't and and the hand one is rather grainy, which it isn't.
any and all critiques greatly appreciated!

More stuff, some of it older, some of it new:
get painter with student price. I got mine for 99usd instead of the full 400usd retail price. Good luck
Wow! I'll definitely have to look into that a bit more
hey man i like your style, especially the flag with the newspaper clipings. It makes you think a bit.
Nice stuff man , you got a little flow in your stuff.
cool stuff! keep pushing the range of your grayscale values. make sure you hit the dark darks and the lighter lights. this will give your drawings much more believability and depth. if you're working from a reference in color, it helps to bring it into photoshop and desaturate it (aka make it grayscale). keep drawing!
Alright, here's some skeleton studies for Moai's animal anatomy mentoring course:
If you're still in highschool, you might try creating your own 'independent study' or something like that. I think I ended up taking extra night classes at a college when I figured out I wanted to go to college for art. The mentoring thing should help you out a ton. Keep up the good work.
You're an artist, not a meat camera. -Elwell
hey man don't worry about your drawings looking bad or not turning out the way you want it to be. Just do the best you possibly can and enjoy the process-someday you'll look back at these drawings and say ''oh my that sucks I definitely can draw better than that old me.''
Thanks Blue Severin and Nigh7shad3
did this up yesterday, an assignment for art class, one of those drawing upside down things, it took forever! and the hooves aren't that smooth looking...*shakes fist at scanner*
Most recent teen challenge- Gothic Angel
Alrighty, here're all the COW creatures I was able to come up with (all done in acrylics)
Starting off with Plague Dragons:
Then, Ice-cold Lava Divers:
A few Furry Pink Predators I managed to paint:
Some Furry Pink Predator Sketches:
And an updated Gothic Angel:
I know you did those studies from Maoi's thread, but I really want to see alot more life drawing in here. Draw at least a few hand studies every single day, even if it's a few minutes before bed. At least!!! Do as much as you possibly can every day, during school and while you are bored and stuff.. A great way to learn things about creatures is also to draw real ones- everything from Aardvarks to Zebra. Make sure you hit the weird ones- Whales, Rhinos, Gazelles, and the like. Things with very unique features.
and again, more life drawing!
