cool dude, nice start with the new. glad to see your having fun drawing, and thats always the best way. don't stress yourself about it too hard, but always try to get better. the best person to critique your stuff will be you, so make sure to keep a keen eye out (preferably somewhere where you won't step on it). we're just here to assist. as per crits, i won't say much yet; i think your individual features are your best work, at least in terms of being anatomically correct (i am an anatomy fiend! ), good to see you tackling perspective and having fun with it...itll help you a lot later on. but yeah, keep drawing, keep having fun, and enjoy the rest of summer. ill be around; see you next time, Gadget...NEXT TIME!!!!!!
Hey, on the perspective stuff, all lines either go toward the point of perspective or either straight up and down or sideways. Unless of course, you have more than one point. BTW, nice stuff so far, just draw a ton, it helps.
Yeah exactly what Goog said
1 point. vert/ horiz lines are either straight up or down, only diag's go to the vanishing point...
2 point. Only vert lines are straight up and down everything else goes to vp's
3 point all lines are pointed at a vp
Keep on drawing Asoir! Drawing everyday will help u loads, like me
P.S. Im the same age as you woohoo(1991!)
yo dude, i went to the bookstore today and i found the bridgman books. i took a look through them, and found that the heads and faces book is very thin, has very few drawings, and mostly those of older, famous people (eg. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Santa Claus, etc.). i decided not to get it. i DID pick up The Human Machine, the Hundred Hands, Drapery and Folds, and Constructive Anatomy. i think those ones are very good, and i didnt really look at the Life Drawing one much, but what i saw of it seemed ok. hope they come soon; good luck when they do.
Mmmmm Im gettin jealous of those books you ordered . 8)
Sweet, shame about the faces book, it was just included in the package. Apparently the Human Machine was quite disappointing for some... Just a small 'warning'. But you never know, enjoy em! Mine should come tomorrow.Originally Posted by purb36
Goog, all of those were a measly Ł20, including delivery, you should consider them. They're on Amazon.co.uk
Asoir, when you get these books could you maybe tell me if their worth getting?
not a bad start, the only thing i can suggest is drawing from life as much as u can, while still drawing from imagination and trying to apply what u have learned. o and have fun! also not one book will teach u everything so its good to get many great books from various authors, when u get bored of bridgeman studies check out "atlas of human anatomy for the artist" by stephen rogers peck
Hey man, when u get those bridgeman's post your studies.
As been said before, draw from life, anything, a chair, a brom, a glass, your family. Keep yourself drawing as much as you can.
Good luck man.
Keep it up.
Thanks, i've been trying that as much as possible, along with shadow tests, perspectives and trying to get the shapes right. I've just got news that the book 'Life drawing''s been sent, so i'll read that as soon as it gets here. (Also my iPod nano's coming around that date too )Originally Posted by Diego
Will put the last update before the bridgman studies tomorrow or so.
nice start, as we all say, have fun with art, until you get to anatomy.. then get the stress toys ready. and then after you aced that, have fun again! .. i'm still with the stress toys.. but there ya go, and draw draw draw, fill the whole damn page and don't waste an inch!
and some advice, get that funny avatar of the cat bitting the finger back! i spend ages just looking at it.. classic..
Crit for a crit!
So, is it a good book to get or what ? ( Bridgman's life drawing )
nice to see your putting the effort in and improving,
The burne hogarth books are pretty good imo.
lots of stuff man, keep the motivation.
Make some detailed studies and learn from it. Draw more from life.
My 2 cents, try putting more time into some of your pictures. Simple or not try tinkering with it until you like it. And the perspective stuff is nice. Keep on keepn on.

you got the bridgmans and are workin them. good. when you do them, make sure to watch your proportions. observation is one of the most important parts to drawing, so as you develop your hand skills, make sure you develop your eyes as well. anyway, keep having fun, good luck in school, and ill see you around here dude. peace.
