I read your note and visited your sketchbook.
Your effort reminds me of my effort.
Remember the 10,000 hour rule.
Your line quality looks good. It's obvious that you've been working hard.
Now try and build accuracy.
To do that, slow way down. Waaay dooown.
Don't work more than an hour at a time, but do put in many hours on a drawing to achieve perfect accuracy.
Put it away for a couple of days, then check it again.
Check it in a mirror too.
It is always good to scan it and see how it looks on your computer screen. Funny, but sometimes that give you fresh insight - like looking at someone else's drawing.
Follow your feelings, and if you love what you're doing, that is a good sign.
here is a fast study i did after this im going to try and start working on accuracy
one last arm study
here is a quick sketch for anatomy
here are some concept drawings
sketch of marines
my dad used to be one so it gave me the idea
ok here is the portrait after alot more time working on the rendiring i was pretty satisfied with it not sure if i want to leave it as is or finish it
There is a limit to what you can do to a drawing, and all the limits depend on you. As artist, we leave a paper trail leading up to our best work. The more we do, the faster we improve, because each one has a challenge. If you think this is done, then the challenge is done, and that means the drawing finished. It don't matter what anyone else thinks.
Art was my personal goal, and I burned all my art so nobody would see it, because my family told me to stop drawing. When my pencil drawing looked like black and white photos I could see what shade of gray would be for each color, and I didn't burn them as fast. My father found my drawings, and wanted to show everyone. So, improving on art has nothing to do with what people think, it is what you think. I only see what you are doing at the moment, and I miss and will over look what you have accomplished, because I don't know you as well as you do. I know every artist likes to be famous.
I guess that is why my art might look different. I drew the opening of a Yin Yang and my idea was used in the Jessica Simpson music video "Irresistable". Today I am sure I am back to being an unknown artist, just trying to be happy doing art. I have been told I can't draw, but I am happy with my art, and that helped me get through when I hated a doing art so much I didn't want to hear anyone talking about it. I feel great just because I like drawing again.
AChipps has written words of wisdom in his first paragraph above. I suggest you do another. Then do many more.
By the way, I think you did a fine job.
here is a fast study of my hand
this is a little experiment i did wit watercolor and ink i kinda like think ill do some more like it
here is the next drawing im starting i did an ink sketch of it in an earlier post now im going to do a drawing of it and take my time
here is more work i did on the portrait
started blocking in the tones and values
started doing studies of the female
Hey good to see your keeping up with drawing, the latest finished rendering is very nice...also those latest figure drawings are those from Hogarth? I suggest avoiding some of Hogarths stuff, he is a bit to stylized...maybe try bridgeman or loomis. I am also curious, where are you doing your portrait studies from?
