    I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...

    Notorious areem nthony arnes <---I know it's not creative,bite me...

    Whazzup people,finally after months of shameless lurking ,I'm finally starting 'ma damn sketchbook!I'm an 18 y/o male from Brooklyn,New York(w00t) and I'm obsessed with drawing & getting better,I want to be MUCH better,but wishful thinking can only get you so far.

    Warning!What your about to witness may bore you to tears:

    I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...
    I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...
    I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...
    I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...I Came,I Saw,I Faltered...
    I Came,I Saw,I Faltered... It's kinda sad the thumbnail looks better than actual image fleashed out

    Notice that none of the figures have arms(or legs for that matter),I suck at them and really need to work on that.
    Critiques welcomed and thank you for lookin'.

    heheh, first I must say I really like your avitar...just somethin' about a monkey with a gun... Good for you for starting a sketchbook, best way to improve is to jump in. Studies lookin good so far, remember to pay attention to the basic shapes of the body, it helps to give the body mass. Look into Hogarth's book for this, they are great.

    good job so far, keep postin'...

    Welcome to CA, good start thus far. Keep the anatomy stuff coming. keep the anatomy studies flowing. Draw from life, and just keep drawing what you love.

    Welcome to CA man. Great start to an SB. Your studies are right on track. Would suggest to do more figure studies. Also would like to see some self portraits or portaits of others. THe last post looks like Bridgeman studies. Great work on them as well. Keep up the good work.

    Nice studies, I like 2nd to last posting (arm construction). You might want to try to loosen up a bit, and not depend on the dark-outline-around-every-outer-shape approach 100& of the time. I working on kicking that habbit myself!

    I drew a bunch of ladies but they all looked stiff.I think it's because measure I mechanically every second(with the pencil ),so I decided to start letting my eye do the measuring and did a bunch of small figures,male & female.

    I'm gonna do a little cleanin' now but as soon as I'm done I'll do some self-potraits and maybe some stuff from my head,later...

    You've got some cool stuff going, I love the weight and form that your figures have along with the variety of poses. Keep it up!

    Oh, and if you're worried about an unoriginal name, how about the "Insidious K.A.B."? The word just popped into my head while I was looking.

    Thanks Anid.

    Okay so today wasn't very productive but I did make a self potrait,I couldn't stop laughing at it when I was done.It's so laughable it looks like I was coming down off speed or something ,but I tried,so expect many more hopefully better...

    Hey man, thanks for stopping by the sketchbook. your studies are doing well. The Self Portrait is pretty good for a 1st try. Try doing some from different angles. And try getting the contrast and shading later on, but for now try and get the overall shape proportion of the face. Keep up the good work.

    Nice arm studies man. The first neck study on your first post has to be my fave. Good job on the first self portrait by the way. Keep on working it.
