Subject title: Etykool's Sketchbook

So Ive started for about a month to sketch a certain amount of time each day to sketch traditionally, but I realised my sketches in digital are not as good as the ones I have in my sketchbook. So, I've created a folder for all my sketches and Ill take a certain time to sketch digitally as well every day, and i'll upload them here. May content really poor drawings, exercises and nsfw. Heres what I have done, today, bunch of sketches and circles, then I tried doing faces with some of them. So, if you have any comment or advices, please let me know.

Holy heads o:
It's good to see you're motivated, I suggest studying Andrew Loomis' head book, you can find it online somewhere, because it seems your shapes are very flat and angled oddly in some.

Day two

I am not satisfied with those. I had much better sketches on my other sketchbooks, and I would like my digital sketches to be as good as my traditionnal ones. It's kinda annoying :/

Welcome to the forums, Etykool! Nice meeting you in the hangout, as well!
You've certainly got the dedication to get the mileage and improvement! I'm not sure if this is completely true, but from what I see from you sketches it looks like you're putting lines down incredibly quickly. Try slowing your arm down a bit! One controlled, misplaced line is better than a thousand hairy lines in the right place. Take your time drawing, speed comes with mileage.
Hope to see more from you, Etykool!

thx, sorry I didnt upload yesterday. Those are gesture practice with coach costa and gevoian. It was about taking some figures and drawing the line of action and redrawing the basic figure as a stickman on top of it. It was really helpful.

Pausing the video every time I saw something cool, then would sketch the pose.

Im thinking of uploading other gestures I did from my personal sketchbooks, I did a bunch in the last few days. Let me know if you have any advice.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this for you but, looking some of the images you posted, the circles you're drawing for your heads look way to large for the jaws you're putting on.
Some of them are also more of an oval, giving the head an uncanny alien sort of look. This is also displacing the features and making them look too far down the face.

Your head sizes are looking better in your gesture work though so maybe you've started to correct this.
In any case I thought I would bring it up since there's no mention of it here.

Please refer to me with They/Them pronouns. Thank you.

Sorry guys, I havent posted in awhile, but Ive been working a lot on faces and trying to get my digital stuff to a level close to my traditionnal skills, and worked on faces and other stuff. So, here are some faces, following some advices by you guys, sorry if I dont thank you all personnally, but I am super grateful for every single critique or comment, and I put some environment thumbnails there, but they are mehh... But I wanted to put them there because I like doing environment concept. So, let me know what you think, and Ill listen to your advices and critiques! Ive started reading Andrew Loomis How to draw head and hands and I like it so far, I think its super useful, so thank you for that too. Ive been in kind of an art block in the past couple days, because my hand skills are worse than my eye's and I wasnt satisfy with my work in digital, especially my sketches. But, I keep going :D

(Need to work more on values and brushstrokes)

P.s Probably gonna open some hangouts this weekend after 4pm, you guys are all welcome, theres always people better than you to help you if you need help with something!

Im so sorry!!! Havent shared anything in a while, ive been doing a lot of line practice and traditional sketches, but deleted most of my digital sketches or just forgot to upload them. Just gonna upload some of the things ive been working on recently, including some traditional sketches, even if I dont like them. Also, idk if any of you guys read the Naruto Gaiden scans, but I love the charatcher, so I wanted to copy it, try to sketch it. Gonna keep working on it when ill get my intuos, because my bamboo is killing me Q_Q. Gonna keep uploading more asap.
