    CrystalART

    Hello Everyone - I thought I'd just try to keep a sketchbook on here for myself so I could keep sketching and practicing new things everyday. Any C/C for me would be fantastic because I'm still learning in areas and learning to kick other habits.

    thanks

    This is something I did yesterday while waiting for my bf at lunch time. Originally I wanted the focus to be on the FF8 Homage, but I got to working on the wings and other tid-bits and it just went from there...

    Another little drawing I kicked out last night. I think there is something off with her face, I think it's either her chin is too large or her forehead is too small. I thought I'd try to work with this in PS for a bit to see how my skills are.

    Sorry for the bad camera work as well....

    Again, Thanks!!

    Hey there. I'm not all that great of a pencil artist, but those looks very nice. I'm practicing how to draw faces at a side angle and you pulled it off very well.

    aliencraft: thanks! I appreciate it. I think profiles and angles are what i am getting better at. full frontal views are harder for me for some reason.

    some anatomy

    the scanner did something kind of funky with the picture, but you can see the basis of it. I think I still need to work on muscle definition more... getting those lights and darks working together..

    i like your foot studies. the only things i can see so far is that you are afraid to use blacks where you see black. try this

    when you draw only focus on 3 things when shading. highlight, midtone, and shadow. leave your highlights white. your midtone 50% gray and make your shadow pure black. it tends to make the image stand out more

    hope to see more soon. later

    Ped454: Thanks for the Advice! That's a great tip for me. I'll definately keep that in mind when focusing on shading.

    Your drawings are really good! Keep them coming, I love what your doing! Your good at the legs and feet. No your hands aren't bad! Just keep practicing and you'll get better.

    I see you are drawing with the chopped off head. You see, the eyes on your faces should be right in the middle, so the head looks like the top has been chopped off. By sliding the hair up and giving her a bigger forhead, she looks a little more normal :

    Hello there LePompadoriousFohawk

    Good to see you've started a sketchbook.

    Keep up on your anatomy/figure studies and also work on your facial anatomy. Draw every day! I wish you luck on your progress!

    I like your anatomy sketches. Keep working on it and it will improve your stylistic drawings.

    As far as your faces...like KtC 57 demo'd above, adding more forehead evens out your proportions more. I would also say that your faces have a little more chin than normal- but I think that looks kinda cool that way.

    I can see great potential brewing about here....


    try this... when you warm up before you start drawing, fil a whole page up with straight lines... keep doing it and making them closer and closer together, that way your hatching will become more believable...

    keep it up!

    Omg Everyone is So Fantastic! Thanks so much for the help.
    KtCruit57: I can see what you are saying. The proportions look a lot more normal. Thanks for that tip..I always think something is a little off and that's probably it.
    KSama: Thanks for the welcome I'm definately trying everyday... hopefully you see my progress
    LateNiteHype: Ya! Chin also Maybe I just like more chin? lol... thanks tho.
    Looped_Warrior: I've taken your advice and started doing the hatching on the new daily sketches... I think it looks a lot more believable. Thanks!

    A good start, so just keep drawing from life and reference (mostly) and have fun.

    Some basic shapes and guidelines might help you on the 3/4 faces too, so that the features wrap around the face more naturally.
