Subject title: Spaghetts' strive for pretty girls (NSFW)

edit
Hiya, I'm Spaghetts (17 years old at this point). Drew spiders and shit as a kid, everyone told me I should be an artist. Art taught me to hate myself so I stopped when I was about 12 - I picked it up last year (December). I'm that intro-extroverted kid who dresses nice and occasionally sends nudes to my friends. Fuck my art up fam, tell me what you think.
/edit

Also, instead of telling me to just read a book to fix a very specific and narrow problem (e.g. lips, jaws) just give me an example of what I am doing wrong (if it isn't any trouble).

So to start off, here's my last week of drawings! 8-)

Hi and welcome! These already look pretty good to me! if you do read and keep practising I'm sure you'll nail it in no time. Some things that I can critisise is that some of the face drawings still look a bit flat, the ones seen from above or below, there should be more cheeks. Not that I can do it any better, I'm struggling with those perspecives too... For the hair, try out a bit more shading, if the light is coming from above, on the side or something. I like to treat it like tree crowns, where light is shining through but you still have shadows... if that makes sense :D Anyway, I only wrote so much because you really asked for it, I think our stuff looks cool so far! Eyes are awesome!

Thanks for replying and the crit! Thanks for the hair tips as well ^^

Still trying to understand the head, I'm thinking exploring other methods will improve my understanding. Also, need to get into gesture drawing if I really want to draw cute girls doing cute things, so I'm going to start gesture drawings.

Here are today's sketches:

Welcome!
Nice start, keep practicing and draw draw draw... do it every day, even if you don't want to, even if you don't like what you're drawing, draw anything, that will keep actives, both, your brain, and your hand.
Our learning path never ends... Keep practicing.

Beanies hide shame!!
Although they are few, I really liked my drawings from today. I got distracted watching art videos and spoiling myself on jetpens.com lmao
What are your guys opinions? That up-tilted head is still destroying me!

I wish I was good enough to give critique on other sketchbook threads. Oh well, my day will eventually come. I'm considering buying "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain", do you guys reckon I'll need it much? Is it worth the buy?

Thanks again!

Also, what are your suggestions for learning the female figure? I needa get that shit down.

Studying anatomy helps a lot, also live drawing lessons (you can find the online "sessions" in Sycra's resources section) is very helpful... even with not a lot of anatomy knowledge! :)

More faces, more fun, way too tired tonight to really study. Maybe tomorrow, I'll check out some figure things! I think I'm going to buy Cubebrush's female figure tutorial, seems effective!

Chuck me your opinions!

I still couldn't bring myself to practice or learn figure, I don't know why it's so painful to me. It's not even advanced anatomy, it's the simplest form! Life is hard lmao, so instead, I drew butts and scribbled a lot. I really wasn't into it this morning, but I had fun anyway!

Drawing lude pictures is going to add an additional benefit to watching porn, and that's the real bonus. :P

I'm thinking there should be a 'add more than one file' option.

Thanks for lookin' guys!

More scribbles to psyche me up to actually do something, and then... remarkably, learning the figure. :o
Let me know what you guys think. I'm so glad to finally getting to it, now that I've started I can actually practice.

looking good! however, i suggest to go with "easy" poses first. just standing poses, later you can go for twisted, bended and foreshortened poses. next sitting and reclining. keep at it!

I've still been drawing (it was hard over christmas with events and whatnot). I just composed my secondary sketchbook. I'm focusing on figures, trying to get that shit down so I can draw pretty girls.

Thanks for the feedback everyone!

How should I go about doing this pose? I'm coming to digital for a bit while I have the opportunity to! (Tablet is at home, I work away from home).

Thanks for any help!!

Took one of the poses and painted over it. I didn't really learn much, I really need to do some studies -- i just don't know where to start. Trying not to get frustrated with a lack of improvement, I need to buckle down and read, do some studies, and practice.

Started some gesture drawings, they're really fun. Hopefully they'll increase the believability of my proportions and overall figure. I think I'm going to strive for 30 a day (2 minutes each), then focus and refine one. I want to draw a naked figure for every day of 2016! I started reading Uldis' "Anatomy for Sculptors" as well as "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain", I may start skimming over "Figure Drawing for all it's Worth" as well.

It helps being an avid reader and having access to heaps of art books :D

My process for gesture drawing is:
1. finding the line of actions (typically the spine, followed or started by any limbs that follow it)
2. finding the masses of the body (rib cage and pelvis, sometimes I will start with the head)
3. meating out the figure/finding the projection of the action line
4. simple anatomy to block out the figure

It's a fun time.

Tips and critique would be great ^^

Woke up this morning and something was different, these little doodles and sketches were super fun, all from imagination -- other than the hand.

just a suggestion for your figure drawing: finding the line of action first is a super good idea. something i try to do as well. however, next i try to find how the shoulder and the hip are oriented in space (a simple line will do here). depending where i wanna take the drawing, i measure out the proportions in heads next. only then i try to add the volumes by adding simple forms.

hope this'll help you on your strive :D

I typically do! Thanks for the suggestions though, I think i need to integrate it more into the actual figure.

More faces and refining old ones!

Long time, no see! Drawing every day - doesn't translate to my digital art, tablets are hard. D:
Anyway, I tried to start colouring something, I'm completely lost.

Gonna start this shit up again!!
I've drawn pretty much every day and filled two sketchbooks since my last post, been drawing many faces and figures.
I've awoken some crazy love for the female figure, and I haven't stopped drawing women since!

Been experimenting with colour since I started using my tablet as well.

Honestly, it's crazy how I went from no motivation a few years ago to now, where I force myself to be motivated (works pretty well). Anyway, here are some things I've done since I've been gone!

Wow, thats a lot of progress, you`re improving fast.

For your WIP, i think you might want to double-check her shoulders, specially her left one.

Had my closest friends over for some drinks the other night, all slept in the same bed and it created and it inspired me to draw a woman ready for bed with an old, raggedy t-shirt on. It has obviously not translated into this yet, but I eventually want to get there!

Primarily, I want to capture the hair and t-shirt (obviously, hence the portrait). Something about the no-make up, messy hair, and pj look that girls have when they wake up is so appealing.

It'd be nice to get critiques on this as well though, specifically the hair and nose!
