This is my first serious attempt on shading/lighting
not much more to say other than: is it any good?
It's very blurry, sorry. don't have a scanner avaliable...
Oh and it's my first attempt on drawing guitars aswell.
(no referance used )
Is the neck too long?

well you kinda were getin there with the lower pant leg, showed a good cast shadow there. But mostly you just kind of smudged the lines to as you reach the edge of any form it get dradualy darker.
even the underside of the guitar is in bright light. theres big anatomy issues going on. I'd sugest you focust on proportion first. even if you suddenly mastered light and shadow, it doesnt mean anything if they are on a wonky looking person.
if you want to practice value and light go copy a master study, or better yet, go draw a marble statue. There are globs of them on google.
Ok thx. I was trying to make the light come stright upon him from the right.
Could you please specify my anotomy problems?
Is it the feets? The hands?
I did some changes on the lighting and the right elbow (the one to the left)
I'll scan it in tmoz
(looked over the drawing and i think i know what you mean about anatomy issues now. the whole lower body is kinda wrong, right? just had too look away for a sec and then back )
It takes a lot of practice drawing from life to be able to draw figures and objects from your head like this. And it takes research – such as finding pictures of guitars, or a real guitar.
There’s a link in my sig called “Concept Art 101” that can help you.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.
Perspective 101, Concept Art 101, Games Industry info,Oil Paint info, Acrylic Paint info, my sketchbook.
I did some work on the arms, feet and the guitar. I'll upload it as soon as i get to a scanner
