Hello my dear fellow artists,
First off: Iíve been lurking this forum for a few months, and Iíve got to say: youíre all so talented, like WOW. Now I thought it was time to display some of my own, well ahum, drawings (canít call them art lol), and hopefully learn a bunch on my stay here. Erhm, first allow me to introduce myself hehe: my name is Milou (20 years old and new here) and as a kid I fell in love with drawing. Ever since Iíve kept drawing and eventually moved over to digital art. Right now I feel like I really want to raise the bar higher and I might even apply for some artschools or rather: I really want to get into some great artschool. Iím determined to draw everyday (traditional and digital) and get better, loads better!! And I really would like for you to join me on this journey to find my path as an artist. I could really use the support! Iíll start with the basics first, and Iím curious as to what you think about my progress, so please be harsh in your critics; because after all: you can only learn it the hard way. But guys let me warn you: Iím an absolute rookie, and Iím very insecure about my drawing skills, so that probably shows.
Ok, enough excuses, Iíll start by showing some sketches I did in the past two days, so be brutally honest with me, because yeah at the moment I kinda suck compared to you awesome guys xD! Iíll (try to) post new stuff everyday!
When I look at these sketches I think my proportions are very off, as are the values. I always struggle with the Zygomatic bone and jaw area, it just always ends up being weird. I also think my shading technique is very bad and my sense of 3d for the skull is dreadful. But I would love to hear what you think I should work on first :-). Thanks a lot!
