Inspired by MindCandyMan's thread and really, inspired by this site, I decided to take my 'Art' or at least my attempts at art a step further.
I've been drawing for a long time, but I hardly ever practised, I only just... drew. More importantly, I hardly ever did any serious works or attempts, since I was always too lazy to put a lot of effort into it.
Leaving this behind now, I will start making serious attempts at creating art and more imporantly, to improve my skills. I only have a very poor Tablet, so I'm mostly gonna post pencil sketches for now. I very much dislike how people I know and communities like DA just... don't give proper critics, so please tell me that it sucks and then point out why.
The first one here is a study of a drawing of Max Slevogt by Emil Orlik. The original drawing is found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Max_Slevogt.jpg
The other is figure drawing practise off a photograph.
Both were done this weekend and I slightly enhanced the contrast on both pictures, since my camera didn't feel like taking good pictures of them. Thanks for taking the time to look at my sketchbook!
