So after nearly two years of lurking at conceptart.org, I decided it was time to get off my lazy ass and start drawing - although that took me almost 2 years too long, I've decided to correct that with this sketchbook. That I'm planning to update daily.
I'm so dead.
Anyway, I'm 15, and live in the Netherlands. I haven't been drawing seriously for all that long, maybe a month or two, though I doodled quite a lot before that. As far as I know, I've got a few big problems - my worst being that I'm bad at shading, mainly because I'm afraid to push value.
With that said, here are some pages - I hope I don't end up like this guy here... Thanks in advance for any critiscm - I greatly appreciate it!
15 minutes or so - we were in a museum with school, and we had to move on.
Some hand studies I've done: (First one is nearly over a year old)
What I can see is that the thumb muscle on the second hand is wrong - it's supposed to circle around the hand, not connect to it.
The last one is a bit flat, I think, but I didn't attempt any shading - for reasons mentioned above.
Some environments - first two are rock studies I did while on a trip.
And some perspective that went horribly wrong. Sitting on the beach bent over with a slanted sketchbook makes for one hell of a bad perspective study... I didn't even get the title straight!
Pencil sharpener and a MP3 Player:
I saw a page from someone elses sketchbook, and was motivated to do the same study. These are from Loomis, and I think I'm going to do a few more tomorrow or so:
I had some Bridgeman studies as well, but they were drawn way too light for the scanner - and in some cases, I wrecked some of them by drawing random stuff on the pages.
Anyway, last one - This is a portrait which I need some help with. I set this up following a tutorial from Ron Lemen which was posted on this site, mainly because I wanted to practise shading and values. However, I've finished the first two stages, and there's a lot wrong here.

And my sketch:
That was my workload. Again, thanks in advance for any critiscm you can give me - it's grealy appreciated!
