    You're off to a good start! Some of those heads are pretty good. Now for the next step: 3/4 views! One thing I'm seeing in your art is that it's all pretty flat. You've got front views and side views, but nothing with any foreshortening or depth. Start thinking in terms of 3-dimensional masses. Practice drawing 3d cubes, spheres, cylinders, cones, etc. These are the basic shapes that everything's made from.

    Your stick figures are another example of this. They have cylindrical limbs, but they're basically just 2d -- flat against the page. You're missing an opportunity to give yourself some depth to work with. Make them 3-dimensional cylinders, like a toilet-paper roll or something, and put a "rubber band" around the middle of each limb to show how it's turned. I made you a quick example.

    And keep it up.

    Hey man, glad to see that your starting early in your life, just have to keep drawing and you'll get better.

    For my 2 cents, I'll just say that for the most part you know what to do, everyones already said it. Get some anatomy books, I recommend Dynamic Figure Drawing, and Dynamic Anatomy, to start out. really think about proportions. Draw more from life (I need to do the same!) It reallllly helps ive found out. And try to have fun above all else. IF youre not having fun, youre doing something wrong!

    My only criticism right now would be to NOT use cylinders at all when you draw. My art teacher in high school always told me not to, he told me to use contours and at the time i was like "NO! I LIKE CYLINDERS! THATS HOW THEY DO IT IN THE COMIC BOOKS!" But only now have i found out that he was right. Using lines like contours, and blind countours really helps A LOT. Just try it, I'm not saying that my way is right and cylinders are wrong, only that i've found more success not using them. But you should always do what you feel is right.

    looking forward to see more work man, keep it up.

    Heya Costas!
    Nice work on the last one, I like how you made the wood look.
    But on this stuff really watch the perspective. Just look up some two point perspective tutorials and make a few basic lines by using that, before you start rendering those details. I think that would help stuff like this a lot.

    Keep it up! And do some more studies ^^ yay
    Love
    Marleen

    Heya Costas

    Nice studies
    You could try to shade a bit larger areas the same value, so you don't have a lot of details. Just try to watch where the areas are darker than the other areas and go from there.

    Well keep it up! ^^
    How did the exams go?
    Love
    Marleen

    You have some very good emotional ideas for the pictures here. Your proportions are good, but you are placing things (especially the eyes) incorrectly in the non-cartoonie ones.

    My advice would be to concentrate on seeing (in your minds eye) where things are more precisely before you draw it. And don't be afraid to use an eraser! Draw light so you can remove the fine set-up lines without damaging the paper. Once you're happy with the layout and composition only then start on tones and hardening up the lines.

    Keep it up.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for visiting my sketchbook, I'm glad you like my work.
    I can see you are improving with each piece you post up. It's great to see that you are making the effort to study anatomy etc, especially at such a young age. I will visit again sometime soon! Keep up good work!!

    Cx

    Hello costas,

    As Dile said on page one, it would realy benefit you to pick up loomis's book on the net, it gives you some of the best lessons from a fantastic teacher, and its free.

    I think this is where I got my copy, it was bookmarked.

    Keep us updated !

    Hiya
    I see you've been drawing a lot. I like some of the manga stuff quite much
    Though I think you could benefit from doing some more realistic studies because all manga is based on 'the real thing', so knowing the real proportions will only help you exaggerating them

    Love
    Marleen.
