Donate

FourMapleLeaf has started a donation pool!
137 / 700
:points: :points: :points: I want to collect points for the hope of getting premium membership...
BUT in the mean time, amounts of points will be contributed to my OK Go group.

I will create you an avatar if you want and it will be 2-10 points according to what I make for you. :D

Anyways, this is probably a terrible idea and no one will give me points... BUT I think it might be worth a try.

You must be logged in to donate.

Morning Coffee
This is a quick sketch I did in practice of proportions and using less reference. It's pretty small. The entire height of her is about  2.5 inches. 

Drawn on the lovely Fabriano EcoQua pocket book with a .3 drafting pencil. This notebook is smaller than my phone. I love tiny notebooks. 

Any and all constructive criticism and advice is heavily encouraged! I could use any help to improve my style. 
Let me know what you think and comment below. :)

I seem to be very good at replicating things that I see. I am best at drawing other art, pretty good at drawing from photos, and semi-good at drawing what I see in real life. But I can't seem to sit down without a reference and draw something on my own with good proportions and visual-space logic. It always looks very very weird, and not what I envisioned.

I like to think that I would get better the more I practice drawing things with reference, but I seem to still not have it down. It always feels so sloppy when I have nothing to base it off of.

I have a lot of cool ideas and designs I envision, and would like to draw them with precision and detail, but it never works out. Does anyone have any advice on this? Is there any method to help me have my own style and draw without reference?

Thank you very much!  
Rainy Day Sketch
Just a sketch I did in a few minutes. I haven't drawn something in a very long time. I decided to buy a new sketch book and find something to draw.
This is not my character. Inspired by a piece of art found on pinterest. If you recognize the character please let me know who created her!

Any critiques? I have such a hard time with face shapes.

Thank you! Please comment!

Hello! 

Is there anybody out there? 
I have been inactive for quite a while on this profile. Is anyone still watching me? Does anyone remember me? If not, that's cool.

My style has changed drastically since I was last here. So, things will look very different once I get starting again soon. I think when I'm bored, I'm going to go back and re-do a lot of my old work to see how I've improved, and such. The thing is, though, I don't really draw these types of things any more. So, it'll still be a challenge to get myself to try it again. 

I'm going to start posting anything- really. Any sketches or doodles worth a glance at. But there will probably be a few big projects in detail in the future. 

I also plan to pick up my jewelry and sculpy hobbies again. I am interested to see if any of you out there are interested in that kind of stuff. 

If you ever have any suggestions of what to draw or commissions you'd like me to do, I will gladly take up the offer. I have a few weeks this summer where I have no obligations whatsoever. So, I'll fill my time with art. <3

Thanks for being awesome!

Thanks for the compliment! You rock too! I am trying to engage in more color value but it's a tough transition from BW to color.

Oh yeah? I've been working on color too. I've been experimenting with different media, and I realize I definitely prefer just pencil and paper... haha. So I understand what you mean. In what way do you think you're going to implement color?

I've been getting into water color a bit. It's a whole new learning curve

I have tried water color too! I am pretty good at landscapes... but for objects and people, I can't seem to get the hang of it.
