What is a flowereater?
One might say it is a strange little animal, who hides in a cave and spends its
days drawing on the walls, throwing rocks at anyone who takes one step too
near of its lair, fearing they might take even one glance at the shameful
drawings on the walls.
As the flowereater spent his whole life in a cave, it had no way of obtaining
any sort of formation in the art of drawing-on-the-walls-of-a-cave.
Therefore, in hope of finding the secrets of drawing-well-on-the-walls-of-a-cave
the strange animal went on the internet (yes, it had internet in its cave) and
created a virtual sketchbook, where people could gaze upon his drawings, safe
from any rock throwing.
You may notice most (all?) of those paintings/drawings look somewhat
unfinished. This is due to laziness or loss of interest... or most likely lack of
skill. I pretty much don't know where i'm going or where to go when I'm
drawing, so my drawings often look unfinished even when i reach a point
where i don't know what to do about them. The last one is a work in
progress though, i intend to finish it and any tips to keep me from that
"unfinished look" would be quite welcome!

Hello again! Since those last two scans of my sketchbook came out
so bad, i tried to figure out *why*. I came to the conclusion that
(a) I drew too small, (b) not enough knowledge of light and (c) I may
not have drunk a pepsi the day I drew those.
While (c) may seems the most likely answer, i thought "what the heck!
Why not try doing a quick light study first anyways?".
I looked up a tutorial on the net, did a quick study on photoshop, then
in my sketchbook and then i tried to use my newly acquired knowledge
on some random photo of a random unnamed horse.
So, here's the result of today's light study on unnamed horse, which
took me about 4h hours to draw.
I'm still not satisfied with the quality of those scans... while it may
be much better than yesterday's, they still look kind of dirty/grainy...
Awesome work for being semi-finished, lol, that horse is awesome by the way

Here's some more stuff: The Wips of a master copy from William bouguereau
and some attempts at gesture drawing... attempts being the key word. I'm
awful when I try to draw fast and when I don't, I draw awfully slow -_- ...
u have good job keep
destinyapocalypse: thanks, I will! (drawing everyday, struggling to get
something decent )
Here's some new stuff, I'm struggling a lot with heads... gotta practice more!
Very nice start to your sketchbook. Really like the one of the lady reaching for her sandle. Keep it up. Draw draw draw!
Great stuff, only thing that really needs improvement is the hair. But keep up the good work anyways.
