i'm new to this site, I saw some awesome art, so I started sketching too, i can draw decent when I have a reference , but I need Help with the technical drawing skills needed when I don't have any references to look at, so I can create some nice original pieces.
the two charcoal sketches are are drawings I did off of some art I saw on the web, the others, are some stuff I made up. I want to get a drawing tablet too, for some digital art, any suggestions on what kind to get? and what programs to use, I got mostly adobe programs.But my main concern is
having solid drawing skills first.
Good. The way to get there is to draw from life and reference (from life is better). Draw lots, draw a wide variety of objects, study human anatomy. All this will build up a visual vocabulary in your head which you can then use to draw from imagination.But my main concern is having solid drawing skills first.
thanx for the comment,i bought A Wacom intuos tablet, 4x6 ... is this a pretty decent one?
It is a decent tablet to have. Its the kind my school had kept for a while. They worked well for me.
In terms of your work, you have the right approach. Draw alot from life. But dont be afraid to put your ideas down too. The best way to improve is to draw. Build your knowledge of what things look like and never be afraid to put your thoughts to the paper.
i like your art. i've got the graphite wacom..i hear the intuous is better...as for programs i'd go with photoshop or painter...painter is really hard for me cause i dont know how to blend with it...yet..... lol
can't wait to see more mate
My favorites are the pen drawings of the candy monster and of the monster itself. They are so lively and loose. They're really great. Good luck with mastering the basics (I'm trying to do that too), and I look forward to your new stuff.

The faces you have drawn don't look like they are from life but I could be wrong, as others stated just keep on drawin from life to help you get a good sense of proportion and such.
Your first piece is really nice and you have some pretty interesting ideas.
it's a sketchbook....
