I'm going to study Digitals Arts and Entertainment (DAE) next year. Therefore I have to learn how to draw.
Here are my very first sketches. My references are the video's from Riven Phoenix. There are still mistakes in it, they've already been corrected by a friend ('Lospescados' on conceptart)
Critics are still welcome though!
More uploads coming soon!

Keep 'm coming
Hope you find the Riven Phoenix videos helpful. I found that after a while there was just too mathematical technique to remember. Copying George Bridgman drawings was much more helpful and intuitive. My hands could learn more from repetition than my brain could remember from study. But if it works for you...
Post some more work.
Some new uploads, due to the exams, I don't upload so often. But wednesday they're over, so I'll be able to upload some more!
Here I am again with some new sketches critics are welcome!
Here you go
hey, i started anatomy with riven phoenix his structure of man videos too!
I really like it, hope you'll learn from it as well.
One remark about your latest sketch tho, your nipple is a bit off, and i think your neck should have started more to the left.
Whenever your drawing it's good to keep real references as well, a good addition to those videos your using would be "anatomie voor kunstenaars" van sarah simblet. Die vind je in de standaard boekhandel
Ok, tnx. I work in 'Standaard Boekhandel', so I will look for the book.
That last drawing I made in Italy on schooltrip. The reference is 'David' from Michelangelo
I've got your mail.
I think it's good to work on your skills now if you want to follow our classes next year.
I think the main feedback I can give you now is this;
-try to really concentrate on your work! These sketches are merely napkin sketches and you will need to make much, much more and try to look better and be more perfectionist when drawing.
You will make the best improvement when working 3 or 4 hours in a row. Only then, you will start to get into the work you make.
-use a lot of different books and reference. There is not only one way of drawing.
-Try to make a lot of drawings from LIFE!!! people on the train, a piece of your room, animals...real stuff. It helps you OBSERVE. And that's all that matters!
-Work on your lines. (lijnvoering: schetsen ipv schaatsen - gekartelde lijnen wegwerken) and try to draw a lot of perspective! Go outside and draw houses. Or imagine a level and try to draw it out.
-And finally; its exercise, exercise, exercise!!! So buy a sketschbook (boekenvoordeel - winkels) and draw, draw, draw!
I will be checking this tread now and a while, so try to update it as much as you can! Good luck!
Thanks for the answer!
It are superb tips. I'll try to take them into account and sketch as much as I can without neglecting my schoolwork now.
Updates coming soon though!
My first shading exercise.
Very simple, drawn without sketching pad, I've worked with a mouse.
