Rob,

I think it would be more interesting if you did drawings of organic things like trees, plants, etc...why not visit the Botanical Gardens, or sketch on the mall itself? Frankly, you yourself can model these inorganic objects far better than render them...so it would be interesting to see you approach organic subject matter (trees, people) in your traditional work.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Lyneran,

I think anyone should do Master Copies ~ to my mind, it's one of the best ways to learn. I think doing a combination of Master Copies, Life Studies / Sketches, and Anatomy Drawings is the best formula for learning how to draw.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hiya!

Here's my first participation in this anatomy forum. To get started I tried to copy Durer's Praying Hands.
Unfortunately, due to my cheap digital camera most of the detail are lost.
Next time I'll try to do a pure cross-hatching copy . I have trouble cross-hatching; It always get messy when I try to.

(bic pen, white sketchbook)



Here's Durer's original sketch:

Now I notice that the hands aren't as slender as it should've been.

batavia,

Glad to see you here! Do you use Photoshop very much? You can tweak the levels of your image by going into Image > Adjustments > Levels and clicking "Auto". This sometimes helps the light / dark quality of your image. But no worries, we can see what's going on in your image.

This is quite a nice drawing! Would you like to tell us something about your training / background?

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Yes, I did use photoshop to adjust the level. To think of it, I should've sharpened it because it looks too blurry.
About my background:
I just graduated from high school; I've had no formal training or anything, only classes in middle and high school. I did have a chance to go to an art program thing in high school but didn't end up doing it. I had fabulous art teachers in middle school. But in high school, my art and drawing teacher weren't really "artists".
I started drawing at an early age; I'm more of a doodler than a drawer, though. I haven't done much traditional medium other than pencil and pen. For some reason starting a real painting is much too intimidating...
I also do a bit of 3d modeling and some photoshop digi painting.
In recent years my doodling and practice have declined, so right now I'm planning to practice more and get into art again.
Oh yeah, thanks much to you RK and other artists here who's putting the little spare time they have into helping newbs like me.
