No I was actually planning on adding one or several details of roses (in the hair or something) and add it to "the girl named rose" started by NOOB! , but then I changed my mind and just put it in here without changing the picture anymore. I started the picture from scratch so I don't have anything for you to comparis it with.

I suspected it might have been drawn from scratch. (Outside of what you were doing with the hair, it does look like an attempt to copy a drawing from a photo though.)

My only criticism would be that when drawing people from scratch, don't try so hard to make it look like you are copying from a photo. At least not until you get more practice at actually drawing people based on what you see in a photo (or more preferably real life).

For a casual drawing challenge, it's okay to make the character look more cartoony as long as you can get the idea of the character presented clearly. What you pick up from life drawing/drawing from reference is that you actually need to first represent your entire figure in more abstract, practically cartoony terms when roughing them out in order to get a proper grasp on the true proportions of that figure.

It isn't the realism of the forms that makes them look realistic, it is the hierarchy of those forms. How those smaller more detailed bits fit in with the large, generalized shapes that make up the figure as a whole. In that sense, drawing a pretty girl is a lot like drawing a pretty tiger.

Thnx guys for replying to my post. I now see that I maybe have made drawings abit to difficult for my level. And that to get the proportions right I should try on something easyer and less detailed, so my next post's propobaly gonna be a cartoon character or something like that to get more practise with proportions.

Hi krissen

You’re doing really well, but I think you would benefit from buying a good book and copying from start to finish (yeah don’t skip).

Andrew Loomis - Fun With A Pencil is a idea book for, and once you’ve started it you’ll never look back. You can download it as well as others as a pdf for free from http://alexhays.com/loomis/ I’d stick with Fun With A Pencil and hold back from tackling or even looking at the others for a while...

Basic construction of anything drawn is with shapes, the head & face is no exception. the eyes, nose, mouth are shapes, but the gap between each of these are shapes too...




oh and MOST INPORTANTLY!!!! draw from life, draw your shoes, ketchup bottles, your breakfast set up fruit on the table, look for the shape of the object and how it relates to the other objects and shapes. Look up the term positive & negative shapes...

Good luck!

Have been alot of stuff going on latlely but I have had abit time to train on proportions and such (thnx sparrow for the tips/link ) And i'll try to have a next one sooner posted

Ps: posted the "real" one, but from an other angle

Thnx for the respons sparrow and flashcartoons,
Well the draw everyday part didn't get that easy unfortunately :/
but now as the school year soon starts to "calm down" I'll get to draw alot more , although laziness also has a small bit of blame maybe
Anyway i'll try to keep it up


(the upload picture was so blured therefor the weird contrast look)

nice work Krissen... your getting good, but you can do much better... on your next sketch try to look at the negative space. The thing you drawing is a shape(positive) and so is the thing you don't draw(negative) the positive & negative make up the composition of the drawing.



keeping your eyes on the negative shapes really improves the positive shapes you draw and helps each other to look right...

if you wanna push your skill level you can also try drawing every panel in the comic you were drawing from. yes even the ones you don't like or look too hard to draw...

good luck

Thnx sparrow for the advice. I never actually think or look for the negative spaces when i draw but I feel it helped alot. By the way are you a hobby
-artist/animator or doing it as a profession/job?

Here's some drawings i did this morning

I'm guessing the pictures on the right were reference. Or were they inked versions of the sketches? Either way, they're pretty good. Venom's a hard character to draw.
