hey everybody, I'm new to concept art and just beginning to be serious about my artistic pursuit. Below are some recent sketches, not much, but its a start. I'm sketching pretty much every day but I need some guidance. There is also an Acrylic painting which I'm in the middle. I would greatly appreciate your critiques! Thanks a lot fo lookin.
here are the rest of them, including the painting. The charcole faces are from photos as is the unfinished sketch of the guy with weird face. The rest are either from my head or from life. The from life ones are the hand, light fixture, cup, earaser and charcole, as well as the vase. The surfer is a screen printing i did over the summer. again, thanks for lookin.
ur furthere then me when i started
and the acrylic is above the level of the other stuff, any idea how come? did acrylics before?
my advice is, keep up the work, and try to do a lot of studies, sketch people u see, or people from pictures. will help u a lot with proportions!
Thanks for the input. My guess as to why the arcrylic is better is because i spent alot of time on it. The sketches were quick and I could generally tell that they were out of proportion and such. But Ive put a good amount of work into the painting. Also Ive been painting regularly for the past few monthes and haven't been sketching as much as I should until very recently. Thanks for lookin!
hey everyone, Its been awhile but I've been sketching daily as wells as painting. Here are some of the latest edition to my sketch book. The first four are observation from the subway. The rest are from my mind or out of life objects. I try to work as much out of life as I can while still focusing on the human figure and face. In addition to this I am working out of Andrew Loomis's book Sucessful Drawing. I would greatly appreciate your critiques! Thanks for lookin.
Working really hard here man, I would suggest picking up some anatomy books and doing lots of studies from the anatomy books. Using the same energy in the studies as you put into the figure studies above. I would suggest doing studies and drawing from life simultaneously, you will only improve that much faster. You should sit back and analyze areas your having problems with. Draw those areas 50 to 100 times over and over again in different perspectives, zoom out again and see what you learned by drawing the complete figure or subject matter of your choice. Now you probably won't master an area by drawing it 100 times or a 1000 times, its about understanding what your drawing, once you have the understanding by using reference or without, your drawings will flow more naturally.
Now I'm not a professional and I'm still learning and growing, this is something that I've experienced and still am experiencing as I practice. I hope this helps, keep working hard mate.
hey man, thanks alot for the critique. I've been meaning to get my hands on some anatomy books. I'll also be attending a figure drawing class at college near me soon. But yeah what you said about drawing areas a bunch of times sounds realy good I'll definitely work with that. Thanks again.
