Hey, trying to get better, don't be kind to me.

Todays poor effort on pose maniacs 30 seconds.

its nice to see your studies, and traditional work. I myself have been doing human studies like a warrior for the last week. It is a lot of discipline, keep it up and results will come with time. ;)

a few more, the skeleton 1 looks a bit skewed cos i took the photo wrong, thats y it looks wider than it should. The other one was for a mock GCSE exam at school.

Probably what would help your figures most would be to study anatomy
You'll probably hear this alot, most people trying to get better have the same problem (I did and still do)
Your faces arent bad though
They have most of the major proportions and such
Just keep workin at it, practice is one of the most important things for getting better

Anatomy studies are always helpful, take some references and draw.

Hey you have a nice SB here. Don't give up on art at school if its something you wanna do. I remember hating my GCSE art lessons, but enjoying my A level ones. But ofc if you wanna do something else then ignore me lol.
Your portraits are really nice, dont really feel qualified to give CC lol, maybe try using a softer pencil for shading with, like 3B pencils, they could give them more tone.
I like the latest piece you've submitted too. I like his stance and the flow of the cloak behind him. You've put a lot of detail into it but the photo is too small to see it clearly.
Your pics make me wanna do more portraiture now haha.
Keep up the good work :D

Did this yesterday, sorry for the quality, a only have a webcam, the scanner isnt big enough.
October 8th, 2008, 12:46 PM
Did abit of anatomy an stuff. Im starting a life drawing class after school too, in an effort to improve.

Thanks for stopping by!
I like the portraits, they look pretty good.
I'd like to see some more anatomy studies. You've probably already been told about this, but look up Loomis, Bridgman and Hogarth. Just reading through them gives you a lot of pointers.
Keep it up! Hope you enjoy the life drawing class, it will probably teach you a lot.

Hey, did this today. Working on a big pastel (A1) portrait at school too, first pastel ive ever done! (p.s. Sorry about the terrible quality of the uploads-i dont have a scanner)

your showing some amazing improvement, you must be working very hard. it doesn't even look like the same artist form just back to your posts in febuary. conceptual stuff is interesting, to me it a good style. your life darwing classes should help quite a bit with anatomy and stuff, but overall a nice start
hard to critique those newer drawings, just keep at it, and draw any opportunity you get.

It's nice to see massive improvement just in the first page of a sketchbook. Keep at it.
November 29th, 2008, 07:46 PM
those anatomy studies seemed to really hit home with you. the style has a comic book like touch to it. good stuff keep improving man.
November 29th, 2008, 08:18 PM
