    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.''

    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!

    Ok, it's been WAY too long since my last post in here, from now on at least a post every week, I promise! Also, thanks for the crits Justin, I'm finally starting to get into the habit of doing at least some hand studies every day, and on occassion a self portrait, which I'd like to do more of. Well, with that said, more sketches (I have done more than just these, most in Moai's tutoring in Animal Anatomy, will probably post those when I've some more time) First one, well, a lot of just stuff- a couple of had studies, some random shapes and little figures, a bit of a cliff in the background on the top along with a horse head, plus an eye and some random shapes.

    If you want more training, take a look at the summer classes at Max the Mutt in Toronto. This year in addition to the "Learn To Draw" intensive, we'll offer a painting intensive. The web site is www.maxthemutt.com. I'm not sure if summer courses are posted yet, but if they aren't give Carla Drmay a call at 1-877-486-MUTT.

    Thanks Maxine I really do need to look into taking extra art courses, the tricky thing with summer vacation though is me getting a job over summer vacation, so I can get a Wacom tablet and maybe a laptop....

    Well, as far as an art update, only a few pieces, a few Bridgeman studies (I just got his book for Christmas) and a painting assignment for my art class, which took somewhere around 12 hours I think (sorry about the crappy photo!)

    Alright, more quick stuff. These are just sketchbook assignments for art class. Tomorrow I'll post pics of some in progress paintings I'm working on.
    edit: Damn, knew I forgot something. Last one is a sketch for the god of leaves challenge.

    Ok, some PS stuff that I fiddled with this week in school, more in the next few days hopefully.
    First, crappy still life of some chalk in a box had about 30 minutes to do it.
    Sketches, doodles, etc. [realitychek]
    Then a character idea I was fiddling with, might ditch it for a while, might not...
    Sketches, doodles, etc. [realitychek]
    And a robotic angel of sorts I started yesterday, I know pretty much all of the body is too big right now, but that was just the original quick sketch.

    Nice study, Realitychek. I remember the cow skull from my old college drawing class. It was a very challenging and fun subject to tackle.
    Your portfolio looks pretty cool too.
    I'd critique you, but I need to save my breath for the mentoring thread.

    Thanks Cory It definitely took a while to do the skull, but I really enjoyed doing it.
    I can't wait to really get going in the animal anatomy again
