These sketches were made recently, and i am using 2 books, one is a learn book which has anatomy and studies, another is the sketchbook which i use of other drawings. Sorry for the low lighting, but once the sun appears from the clouds i can get petter pics.
I think you've got a good grasp of value, and your hatching is quite nice. Keep practicing that because that's gonna help you out later.
In regards to your other drawings, always map out the form first. Contours come later after you've correctly blocked out the form.
Check out my sketchbook.
heyyy i found youuuu~
you have a good eye for value, and you really know how to control a pen. ;D Keep those master studies and life drawings up, every bit of knowledge gained from those--invaluable.
/generic command to keep posting.
back with an update!
this painting was made a while( early in the month) ago, but i never got to post it.
My first official oil paint, i got direction on how to get it to dry, but all other oil painting i do never dry
sketches, from both the learn book and sketch book
@BadGeometry:I love using pens, and cross hatching, even do it for pencils. My problem is that i dont really outline, i make this mess of a form and shade the hell out of it. i get a bit more careful if im working on bristol or something big, ill post something once i make something.
@joseph-fb : thanks, you got a SB too?
@ A la bapsi: im trying to find a master artist who has sketches that i really like, so far Michlangelo is the only one i can find. sure they are others, but either i havent found them or their sketches didint appeal to me, btw nice poster drawing in your SB

ok, the first set of drawings are master copies, i dont have the original unfortunately. they are from the charles-barque drawing course and others. but mostly from Charles Barque. later on it gets to random sketching
Here we go:
im going to get more still life once I leave for College in a few days
You'll never look at these again because you'll be making better sketches and drawings by the end of this year.

I enjoy your master copies and that oil painting is good.
Like everyone else said you have an eye for value.
keep up the good work.

Hey sishir! i dont know if you remember me but i came with Equality45237.... to visit the ringling campus a few months ago, but anyway good sketches man keep it up! ill be at ringling next year too !
I had a funny feeling whilst viewing this sketchbook, like its two of you there in your head, one is total newb and the second one is already skilled person.
But the further i went the more that second person showed, so i guess you had bad while doing those little very bad sketches hehe, the rest is impressive keep up the good work :]
