    Iain's little shelf

    Hello, I'm an ameteur artist from Malta. With little inexperience next to most of you here.

    I work with flash, Photoshop, Paint shop pro and sketching by hand.

    I'm 13 years old (14 this year) and I've started drawing well (sortof) since about...6 months ago?

    Here's my eye bunring stuff.
    Sorry for bad quiality scans.

    Good start mate.

    I'd recommend you start with some decent anatomy studies and figure drawing, since your figures need some attention. Work on you linework as as well, start thinking about EVERY SINGLE line you draw and why you are drawing it. If it does not add to the drawing, don't draw it. Also try to draw one solid line instead of millions of tiny ones.

    As for painting, Carnifex introduced me to this lil page. It has a lot on painting - not everything, but a great deal of basics. Read it and apply!

    Hope that was helpful, big thanks for stopping by my book!
    ciao!

    Hey man, thanks for commenting on my SB. You got a pretty good design aesthetic, composition and such. Your forms, proportions, linework all need development tho.

    You are abstracting your shapes and figures too much (oversimplifying). I recommend practicing drawing from life, and trying to draw only the 'negative space' (the forms of where things aren't, not where they are, like the hole in a donut).

    see?

    the imagination is taxed to its utmost – and will
    produce its richest ideas. Given total freedom,
    the work is likely to sprawl.”

    Thanks for your comment in my SB, Iain. Your latest animations are rather funny and ingenious, and I like the pictures on post #6. Keep up drawing anatomy too! Cheers!

    Hey this is a good start for your age. You've grasped proportions and sizes of the human body well. You would do well to slow down your drawing hand a bit and lighten up on the pencil pressure (two tips I was given last week that have really helped).

    Try and concentrate really hard on drawing what you see in front of you (when you're not drawing from your imagination). Look at one bit and draw just that bit, don't let your imagination add in stuff that's not there. Take it slow and steady and you'll see great improvements come on very quickly.

    Nice stuff.
