compliments: first of all, you can tell that you practice art a lot and are far above average from the normal person.

 

critique: nothing, because it appears that you don't quite have a style yet as you are quite young -- your art reminds me of people at your age who have yet to fully bloom (not your fault! first you have to learn by mimicking, then you'll really advance once you have down the basics). since there are no glaring issues with your proportions/understanding of the body, then i would feel bad giving a subjective critique. i think given time for you to develop not just into art, but into who you are as a person/what you are interested and how that art will reflect it -- then, given that time you will have art art :) pay attention to not "perfecting" each piece of art. it's okay, and even great, to sketch sketch sketch. have those lines/mistakes. don't think too hard.

You've got a really nice sense of proportion and grounded gestures! The ballerina in particular has a very nice sense of flow to the pose. As far as what to practice goes, I'd recommend experimenting with varying line width and values/shading-- drapery studies are a good way to tackle both of those. Any kind of in-depth anatomy studies can also really help to enhance the solid proportional understanding you're working with.

 

Actively seeking critique is a great attitude to have and will really help you in your art. Keep at it!

Your proportions on the human figures are great! I love your work. I'd say for trying to draw realistically (if that's what you're going for), maybe work on shading a bit more, your shading is very soft and about the same value, try making your shadows darker in some spots to add some contrast.

I loooove the movement in your ballerina!

 

One big tip I have for you is to try and focus more on light and dark contrast to create shapes instead of the line. All of your drawings have very harsh lines which makes them look flat. Try thinking of your subject in planes of light and dark, it will help create dimension.

 

Other that that, keep going!

I'm not very educated in drawing, painting, etc. but if you're going for realism maybe try drawing moving fabric or water? I think that would be challenging, trying to show the movement of fabrics with different patterns, weights, materials, etc. I've also heard that water is really hard to draw/animate, so there's my reasoning for that.

 

Also, if it means anything, I took several screen shots because your art is very pretty and I want to keep it  :)

your art is quite good so here are just some general bits of advice: invest in a good sketchbook! look into gesture drawing! and if you just feel stuck w no idea where to go-- imo a great cure is to look at other people's art and see what inspires u! then figure out how to do it! I've been drawing for ages as a hobbyist and I'm decent if I do say so myself-- so if u have more specific questions feel free to ask and I can do my best to share what I've learned!

good stuff to start with! well done, be proud! 

 

but !! it looks like in the second one you've blended with your finger (correct me if im wrong) which is just a terrible thing to do and a real sign of an amateur artist. not to worry, the art still looks pretty, but i'd say get rid of that habit as soon as you can. the more practice you do with pencil shading - the quicker you will become good at it, hey? ; )

otherwise, keep practicing! looks promising. maybe i would suggest loosening your linework and making it less-thick , but i think that's more a confidence in art thing than a skill thing, it'll come soon enough. i

Working artist here! Your work is very good, especially for beginner level, both your original work and your updated. You need to work on looking at how gravity effects things like cloth, and folds in clothing. That will go a long way towards enhancing your art. Next, you artwork lacks a specific light source. Pick an angle for light to hit and shade everything accordingly, one side will be lighter than the others. A good way to practice this is to set up a lamp and put different shaped objects under it and draw and shade the same object with the lamp on a different side each time. Lastly, Practice drawing individual body parts in a BUNCH of different positions. If you can get real people to pose for you in real life, its best, but if you can't there's a ton of resources online. Additionally, try picking up an anatomy book at a second hand store. It will help show you the muscles, bones and tendons under the skin. Your people right now lack real definition in their limbs because you're missing key details that you'd pick up on from drawing from real life or observing with an anatomy lesson. Your proportions look to be pretty spot on, aside from your painting in the updated comment. Her shoulders need to be a little broader for her head size next time. As far as coloring goes, your paintings are well done. I really love the abstract one. Keep experimenting and playing with the colors, they go well together. Something to note: White is never just white, and black is never just black. These colors reflect (white) and absorb (black) the colors around them, so include a little bit of the surrounding colors mixed in to them, i.e., the girl in the white shirt may have some very light shading in the armpit area that was a red color where the red was reflected from her corset. Doing things like this gives your drawings a dynamic feel and adds shape and form really easily. For the colored pencil drawings, try going in tiny, soft circles to get a full coverage effect instead of going in one direction like in the bottom drawing. Thats pretty much all I've got for you. You're putting in effort and getting better. Good Job!!!! Keep it up.
