    Roosketch-Sketchbook

    Hello, I'm new!

    I've been out of action for years... was good at drawing as a kid then got a computer and that meant something else to pass the time with, so the drawing slipped aside. I've just gotten back into it within the last few months with a view to going to uni, studying illustration, and actually having a career I'll be happy in. Meanwhile, here's a few sketches.
    Comments, critique, and straight forward abuse (if you can justify it) very welcome!

    Cheers

    - Roo

    Do you mean use more of the greyscale spectrum as my shading seems a little light? My scanners contrast isn't set up the best, they are a bit darker in life, but this is a new style for me. I always used to shade too much and the piece would end up looking very blurry. I'm trying to be able to sketch without lifting my pencil from the paper as much as I'm used to, as in keep as many continous lines going rather than scratchy sketches, to give nice, solid line quality. I realise only half of this post is relevant to what you were saying but I thought if people were going to see my process they should see what I'm trying to achieve

    looks quite cool, but id say perhaps do a few more studies of hands coz the thumb looks a little off ( says the girl who is the worst person at hands ever)

    Hey UK guy huh!? Cool!

    Your nature studies are really nice. Try doing some anatomy studies as well, I've recently started doing some myself, they are actually pretty fun to do! Hands are always the hardest thing to draw...Well I think so anyway!

    Keep posting,

    Laterz!

    the hand looks a lot better =]
    as for theband design i think the lettering would look better bolder and more uniformed in size and weight, and straighter edges
