Subject title: Cherno's Sketchbook

I finally found out what prevented my images from being attached so I thought I would make this.

A little background on me, I'm from Southern California, I'm 19, I started drawing seriously roughly two years ago. I mainly work traditionally although I sometimes try things digitally.

Here's some things I made recently, any critique/direction/advice would be appreciated.

Loomis sketches

Really great stuff. You're already at a pretty good level! I'd love to see what some of your more finished work looks like!

Only useful suggestion that comes to mind is to do larger still lives for those studies. Doing one object is all well and good, but you get more out of a still life with 2 or 3 objects in it than you would just doing one. Still lives are a great way to train your eye to see relative proportions, and to teach you to knit all the proportions, shading, foreshortening, perspective, etc... into a cohesive whole.

Hard to give too much more advice from just what's here, but keep at it! And make sure your pictures make the drawings visible, really hard to see the figure studies.

Aside from what Felime mentioned, i would say (looking at your Loomis sketches as well as still lifes) that you could use some development in the areas of form drawing/solidity and perspective. I can tell looking at the still lives that they don't feel as a cup or sharpener or whatever but rather as a drawing of them, which is not what you want for a study.

Check out Ernest R. Norling's "Perspective made Easy", solidity of form is closely linked to perspective and that book is the best possible start/introduction to that fundamental in my opinion.
What is nature, but a miserable little pile of forms!?

I don't really have much in the way of finished drawings because I lost the conviction to spend hours on a single drawing a while back but I did do a couple for a figure drawing class.

It's been a weird month, got sick for a week, had multiple holiday parties, bunch of university work to do, and finals. Hopefully, I can update more regularly now that it's all out of the way now.\\

I freehanded a bunch of boxes on an old handout for one of my classes and did more with a ruler on a different page

And actually to add on to the answer of old work I did, this is the only thing I digitally painted and I've done nothing near it since. If I remember right I did this after seeing a picture from James Gurney's Light and color.

Do studies have to be 100% accurate to the reference?

I mean, it's been bothering me a lot because my sketch of the reference usually are way off when I compare them. It's gotten so bad that for this sword study I gave up with my sketch and just drew parallel lines from the features of the reference and then copied the study over the reference to patch up painting errors.

This one I actually went through with the sketch and came out with this line drawing. It took somewhere over an hour.

It depends on what do you want the final result to be. If you want photorealism, then probably the answer is yes. But generally speaking, I don't think that you should bother too much (unless you're drawing a face which is supposed to look like the original), the reference should be just a help. And it's important to know which elements of the painting are important ;) For example, if you're drawing a metal sword, you should pay attention to the values, the way it reflects light etc. - and it doesn't matter if the blade is a little bit longer or shorter than in the photo.

God I was gone for a while,

I didn't do that much for two weeks so I decided to take a bit longer to update this so I could have more then just a page or two of studies then I got depressed because school was coming around then school came and I found out my schedule was hellish and so forth.

There is a lot of pictures here though.

Worked on some perspective, trying out two vanishing points

You have nice studies, I think you're doing them a bit too fast. I recognize the shape is/proportion is off on some of them, and doing this you're going to burn the wrong shapes into your memory which is the opposite of what you want. Take your time, do them right, and you'll improve faster even if less studies have been done.
