Hey, my names Brad, and i'm a first year art student. Basically i've loved drawing since i could hold a pencil, and seeing as how i've chosen it as my future career i decided it'd probably be a good thing to do to actually learn how to draw I hope to update this daily, or at least every other day and i would appreciate any crits/comments.
Heres some of the stuff i've done in the past week. Thanks!
hey good start off for a sb, i like some of the conceptual stuff u have there.
careful with the facial anatomy, use something from the image as a point to gauge the proportion , like what i do is i use the eye as a landmark and use that as a size relation with the other structure on the face, like the lips or the width and height of the forehead.
anyway good start, keep going at it. (=
The only real failure is the failure to try
Zalxemptyx - Thanks man, faces have always been something i've struggled with, i'll keep that in mind next time.
This is just one quick silly monster i did for fun, a quick pose i found by googling UFC fight, and 2 studies of a plaster cast of teeth we had in class the other day.
Shalite - Hey thanks a lot man, i love the ocasional ass pat and ya your right about the bottom guy
2 new sketches for today, some figures and what happens when cousins get married. Enjoy!
Studying for my finals has really been kicking my ass for time recently, this is all i've gotten done today. About shading techniques, i've always cross hatched for my sketches like in the above image, but i tried a much smoother technique on the one lizard head, i personally think it came out much cleaner looking but lacks something... Im not really sure, i'd just like to hear some thoughts.
The lizard heads are very nice. Crosshatching your shading gives your work a very traditional look, and perhaps you feel it's "lacking something" because it doesn't convey a lot of personality?
As for your human faces, I think you have a tendency to recede the mouth/jaw too much based on some of the sketches here. It's fairly common for the lips and/or chin to be equal to or passed the brow ridge in side profile.
Once again, no time thanks to exams, quick one, looking through the reference forums.
Aphotic Phoenix - Forgot to thank you in my last post, but ya, i guess we'll just see as i sketch more, thanks for posting
