Since you're one of my active commentators I decided to go through your gallery and find some more illustrations that I like. That is a really difficult task to accomplish because there is so much in your gallery that I like.
I really like this illustration a lot because you did such a wonderful job showing fabric folds. Plus the subject is so nicely drawn as well. Beautiful lips and eyes.
constructive hints are most important, right? I try my best to follow your progress! thanks again for your comment! I'm happy you like it, although that drawing is very old now I can now do much better
thanks for your comment well it's a damn old work and when I started working on it, I changed few details compared to the reference. as you can see, she wears more clothes and I've had issues with the angle of her back, it turned out to be a total mess. I focused more on the shape of her body, and when it comes to draw her back I decided to leave it out. It would have kinda crashed my drawing, although it looks beautiful on her "real" back. btw you're the first one who ever asked me!
hmmm thx for the props, but i have to disagree, my hand adapts to the relationship between light and dark, i wish i had a style, but my parents didnt let me do art school to evolve one.. there are alot of things i dont "see" yet when i'm drawing.. so if its anything great about it, its pure coincidence.
i'm not ready to do tattooed skin yet.. but like i said, u could try..
ohh don't be to impatient, you DO have a style. believe me, it just takes a while untill you can see your own style in your work. mmhh going to art school isn't always worthwhile. I've been to different art school in my free time for about 10 years. at first it really benefits, you're quickly improving your style. but after a while you meet teachers who want to tell you something about how to handle a pencils, trying to influence your work or just tell you it looks good without any useful hints.
I found out drawing with people who also love arts benefits most. it doesn't matter how experienced they are, as long as they're interested in helping each other. the biggest advantage is saving money, and you can meet at each other's home so you don't have to travel. when you're living in a bigger town I'm sure there are few private drawing groups around
