Subject title: Patrick's Sketches (NSFW)

Welcome to my sketchbook!

I would really like to expose all of my shortcomings and establish and understand my strengths in order to grow as an artist. So please feel free to criticise or commend my drawings/artworks on ALL fronts!

I will try my best to update this as much as I can. Updates will be inconsistent.

I've only really marked my sketchbook as NSFW for the sake of convenience, but I won't necessarily be frequently posting explicitly NSFW drawings, I just prefer having that liberty.

I'll start this off with some face drawings.

I started these sketches with no motive in mind, then I aimed to create convincing expressions, then I just did whatever.

Nice looking expressions you got going on here! Keep it up!

Also don't be afraid to play around with outfits/clothing to emphasis character. Drawing collar-up heads is good fun, but rarely do we walk around quite so naked all the time. Just a 2 cents worth. ^^

Looking forward to seeing more!

Good idea! I'm very unfamiliar with clothing in relation to character, that should make for some good exploration, Thanks!

Thing of a woman from imagination, not entirely sure what I wanted to do with this.

I probably wanted to do something with anatomy in perspective. That's my best theory.

I should have more clear cut goals I think, instead of ambling around aimlessly.

Some cloth stuff. I tried to do some form relative stuff on the top left but I think it flopped (not 100% sure to be honest).

Sort of no ref, I looked at some images of cloth beforehand and drew these from what I remember/what I think would happen.

A quasi-concept of a skeleton witch, mainly just testing my visual library and thinking about omission and design.

I agree.

I see you have potential but how are you going about learning what you need to learn?

Overall, great sketchbook, keep up the good work!

Yea, I will try to focus on what I am aiming to achieve with I do. I think it would be good to delineate concepts to focus on before drawing so I can be sure to look out for slip ups or opportunity for experimentation in those specific areas (it would probably help to write it down on the page to have that reminder).
Thanks for the encouragement too, I will post as often as I can!

Thanks! I think I'll do more stuff on cloth and fabric, I don't think I've got it fully yet.

Thanks! I will probably try similar stuff with fleshing out concepts/ideas.

Here is a painting of a disembodied head, I came back to this periodically over a few weeks (I think it took a little under 2 hours all together).
I do want advice on painting/painting skin specifically and painting without lines. Because I am unfamiliar with it and because I have no ideas other than doing it blind until it works.
Screen Shot 2017-07-23 at 4.18.30 pm.png
I think it looks ok, but that's what I thought every time I left it for a week. No reference as usual.

Also, thanks to everyone who has given me feedback. I very much appreciate it!

Another painting example, playing around with a made up skin tone.

Similar time frame, if not longer.

you say it's 2hr+, but it looks effortless! By painting without lines, do you mean without an underdrawing, or without using actual lines in the process of painting to indicate contours?

When I say "without lines" I mean keeping something looking right without constantly referring to an underdrawing/guide.
Also, what do you mean when you say "effortless". Are you referring to lack of attention to detail or something else?

I think they mean that your work is not as finished and detailed for a 2 hour painting as it should be. I think you should try ,,sculpting,, the forms out more, make them look more 3D.

As simple as this is, it is very nice. I like the colors the really pop out.

oh no my English betrayed me, I meant it as a compliment, it looks consistent and confident. Mine usually look a lot more messy and overworked and underworked at the same time after 2 hours

Fair enough, I think I'll just keep doing it up to a point where I can produce something reflective of an hour's work. I'd say a lot of the issue is due to not really understanding how to tackle a facial form with painting techniques and as a result, fluffing around without knowing what I'm doing.

Oh, thank you very much! I think the second one still looks pretty lacking though.

Thanks! It's something I really try to emphasise and experiment with because I haven't really delved too far into painting or colour theory.

Here are some quick sketches. Mainly because I have obligations to school and haven't had a lot of time to do some dedicated drawing.
