Welcome to my humble sketchbook. Ive been doing some basic sketching in the past but had to stop for a long time. However now i have spare time to do some sketching so here i am
After posting couple of artworks i figured out i have issues with anatomy/proportions in my drawings. I hope to practice and get my sketching into a good standard by maintaining a sketchbook here. Im a self learner so please provide feedback whenever you feel like, since it'll help me to improve a lot. It doesn't matter your critiques are harsh, so feel free.
I have started referring some books (especially Andrew Loomis, many thanks to 'Star Eater' ) and im hoping to post my new sketches daily. I believe you people will provide a helping hand for a newbie artist by providing feedback.
I have included some of my old drawings at the beginning of this thread (couple of years old) and will update daily. Please refer to the last page for most recent work.
Thanks for your time, Hope you enjoy.

good start keep drawing and practising
and like you said practise makes perfect
I have included some of the sketches i've done yday while i was going trough a book by Andrew Loomis. If you have any suggestions/critiques please do mention them.
Kudos for opeining the sketchbook. I'd like to see you try drawing something real, a household object, a pet or a family member.
@Star Eater - Thanks for the suggestion and i just started sketching some figurines i have at home as you mentioned. So i started with a basic one here and kept to minimum detail. Will do some detailing as i get use to this. (i quickly applied some colors in corel painter so i can learn about painting a little as well)
@SadMonster - Thanks man. As you mentioned ill be moving into perspective drawings soon. I got some books that so hopefully will get better at this eventually. (Andrew Loomis)
Thanks a lot for your feedback guys and please let me know if there are more suggestions/critiques.
I added some more still life drawings. These are of some figurines i have at home. Hoping to draw/study human figures by using some fashion mags as references. Ill update once i have done few of em. If theres any suggestions/Critiques please feel free to let me know.
This is a piece i did lately. Im using reference images for my study of human figure. I used 2H-6B pencils for the original sketch (1st image). In addition, I did a bit of value adjustment Photoshop(2nd image).
I have included the reference image as well. Please feel free to let me know what you think, since it'll help my study immensely.
Thanks and hope you enjoy.
Just some idea came into my head. Quick sketch & paint. ofc critiques are more than welcome
Thanks a lot mate. Will do. Got some fashion mags today for more reference work.I Will update whenever i do some new work.
I just wanted to try out painting some mountains and figure out how grayscale values can be used effectively. I didn't use any direct reference for this one but shoul use from next onwards i guess. I started off with 3 values and later applied colors.
Any suggestions/critiques are more than welcome, as usual.
hello. i think you should lay of the digital painting for a while. You will improve faster if you realy learn how to draw with pencil before doing digital.
Draw from life! and do it alot.
selfportraits is good training !
Thanks mate. Its just i got some spare time so wanted to paint a little to see some colors. Anyways i wont be moving into digital painting till i get my sketching into a good level. Currently im using some fashion mags as references.
Here goes another piece of my study, using photo references. (used 2H-6B pencils for the sketch and applied some colors using photoshop)
(photo ref: Gary Russel at the chapel, Tunbridge Wells)
If theres anything you wanna mention please feel free to do so.
Thanks a lot and you are right about the nose libellchen. Also, i have messed up the proportions between nose and the mouth a bit too.
Anyways i need much more practice so hoping to do at least 50 more drawings from references. Hopefully that knowledge will help me when i start to draw from my imagination.
These are some sketches from of my anatomy studies (Structure of Man) regarding side view of the skull/head. I thought sharing this with you guys will be useful, so here you go. In the last sketch i was trying out the acquired knowledge in few different ways.
If theres anything you wanna mention please feel free.
I was just up to suggest that you should start
some head studies, viewing your first few posts,
but now looking at your latest updates, I can see
that you are doing the right things.
Train a lot and keep posting.
Here goes more pieces from my study regarding human head. In the last piece i was just messing around
Thats it! enough head studies for today. Gonna do a photo ref sketch now.
Looks like you're onto a good start, and studies already!
I think it's brilliant that you're taking what studies you've done with Loomis and immediately tried to apply them to your imaginitive work, it's a good way to soak up what you're being taught.
So anyways, keep up the good work!
@ Naidy - Hey thanks a lot for visiting my sketchbook mate. Its good to have your opinion about my work. Im getting more spare time next week so will finish going through your sketchbook.
Now back to work....
Im gonna share more pieces from my study with you guys. Maybe they'll be helpful for beginners like me
started working on a photo ref sketch, will post it tmrw hopefully. see ya people later. enjoy!!.
@Snake - Those skeletons escaped from your SB !!( due to extreme violence i guess), i just hanged em here so i can study em Anyways man tnx for visiting my SB. Always good to have some encouragement.
@Ramalooke - Thnx mate and will reduce the fancy background stuff in the future studies.
Now for the new stuff...

Ahh i completely messed up the perspective aspect in this ref drawing as well as the width of the face *sigh*...Grrrr...ill do a new one! Anyways i've attached it..if guys have anything to say please feel free.
okay,see ya guys later. Have a nice day.
@ Silwynar - Thanks a lot mate. You're correct about the nose im working on those anatomical errors mate. Still have so much lessons to finish off so working extra hours till i get em right
I support the idea of backrounding your drawings,
it just gives them a nice touch,
but I also agree with Ramalooke,
you just need a bit to fade the back
layer, or make the opacity lower. Otherwise
keep catching the subjects running away from
my sketchbook, cause there will be more of them
This last drawing is great, maybe with lesser
anatomy mistakes, but your shading is ace mate.
"Tome of Violence" -man I love that idea.
Maybe I should change my sketchbook name to that?
Thank you very much for including my link in your signature.
I am with you now, I mean on the same team, so if the
ship sinks, we are going down together. Just jokin.
@Lt.Plissken - Love to be in the same team mate ! Also, thanks a lot for the support and ideas of yours mate, as always. If you like it change it to "Tome of Violence" or "Snake's Tome of Violence". I like it
Now for the latest stuff....
I've added some brush strokes and colors to my previous photo ref study (despite the anatomical errors) and im moving into more studies regarding the chest cavity,ribs and sacrum area. Hopefully someone here may find em useful so here you go.
Hoping to use this knowledge and draw something from my imagination now. Will post it as soon as its done.
Have a nice day people. Peace out.
Eeeeexcellent background combination
here on your latest ribcage studies.
I think that we are learning from the same
video tutorials. Maybe you do not realize it
but your improvements are already showing greatly
since you registered here.
