Nice man! Those study feels really strong and that's a positive thing, just keep working and working, sometimes could be boring but it's totally worth it, so keep doing it and feel free to do things that you like too, not only studies
Here's some stuff I did today. some digital drawings this time. It's been awhile since I used the tablet and I havent even used my tablet much anyway so theyre pretty sloppy but yeah. I need feedback on the last one btw. I feel like I could make it look decent but the coloring on it is bad. Any tips?
Here's todays stuff. I really liked the sketch of the astronaut type guy and was eager to color him with the crayola pencils my mom bought me but as it turns out, crayola sucks. Can anyone suggest some good coloring pencils to me? Unless i'm not using the crayola kind right...
Stuff I did today. Did some females finally since I'm bad at them I felt I needed to practice with them more.
Nice sketchbook. Keep up the good work and those studies!
I can't wait for summer.
I'm so hungry...
Hey, great studies! I wish I had your determination to work anatomy I find value exercises very gratifying though, great for establishing quick depth and spacial orientation.
And Thank you for looking at my Sketchbook. I'll be checking back to see how you are progressing!
Mostly just doodles today, nothing big. The king doodle says "I'm too old for this shit, man." In case you're curious.
Oh yeah, thanks Wretched! I'll be keeping a eye on your sketchbook as well for more awesome sketches.
Did some sketches of various objects to try and get better at making stuff look more 3d-ish. Also downloaded the trial of photoshop cs6. Attempted to paint a warrior guy. Turned out better than expected even though i'm terrible at digital drawing/painting and new to photoshop. Will keep practicing of course.
The warrior from imagination is looking good, however it would be even better if you studied and applied more anatomy, added used more "realistic" propotions. However I do understand the proportions were stylized, it is just personally I don't think it is good to force a style until you have gotten a good grip of anatomy and structure, but you are doing well just keep up the studies and hard work
Hello! Your sketchbook is looking good, you clearly have an active imagination that would be helped immensely by studying basic forms/anatomy/gesture a little bit more. I find it helpful to always keep perspective in mind...it applies to literally every aspect of a drawing. A human body for example can be broken down into various cubes and spheres and cones which are all affected by perspective.
I was told that a good way to form the basis of your art studies is to learn, in order (because they all build upon eachother): Perspective, Proportion, Gestuure, Form, Overlaps of Forms (foreshortening), Planes of the Form, Construction (how the forms fit together), and lighting (how to reinforce the forms you drew to make them read as clearly as possible). If you think about it, this list really makes sense...you need to know how shapes behave in space (perspective) before you can learn correct proportions of those shapes at different angles.
I hope this wasn't too confusing! You're on the right track though, keep it up.

Thanks guys, good advice. Haven't been drawing due to getting out of school and playing Dragon's Dogma all week nonstop. Here's some stuff from last night.
