    Those are well done. Hair can be difficult, you're not alone. I love sketches, thanks for sharing.

    Painting hair is easier because you can use color in layers, getting highlights in hair is hard with a pencil.

    Thanks, Buster. I enjoy doing sketches, but am quite amateur. If I can find them, I have some paintings I did yeaaaaaaars ago, lol. The only two pieces of art I have left from my past. I have a couple of amateur ones I did in the last year or so...but they are baaad. may share 'em anyway.

    its all relative

    keep practicing. Even if you feel youre not improving, your brain is learning lil shortcuts and tricks to aid you...

    I dont do enough sketching any more, i used to do it tons... never was good at photorealistic shit, but Id love to get that good, Ive seen a bunch of artists who are insanely amazing at realism with pencil and im jealous haha

    A snowboard design I did for an SSX contest. I hadn't attempted any graphic design prior to this, so after some playing around this is what I ended up with.

    my style is really anti-advancement. i never use color, and i never use different textured pencils. i use one pencil to do the entire drawing, and if it doesn't sharpen properly, i just grab a different pencil. probably could shade better if i understood which pencil was softer and which was harder, but i don't care and refuse to pay attention when someone tries to explain it to me.

    i like my style, though. i do everything freehand, never a ruler or any scaling. it's not proper and neither am i.

    it does help big time to understand the pencils and have them...

    but im like you, i draw with 1...

    but i do alter the tip for different effects while drawing... like make it real sharp vs dull it out for softer shading... etc etc..

    for my artschool we got a set of pencils from 8b all the way to 2h

    8b, 7b, 6b, 5b, 4b, 3b, 2b, b, hb, f, h, 2h (hb is a regular pencil)

    the 8b wont hold a point at all its way too soft, Dark as fuck

    2h is hard as a mother and will hold sharp point no problem and is light colored


    actually using these different levels does bring your drawings new life, weve been learning the techniques of why and when to you each one basically.... its not rocket science. But it makes a huge difference

    Yeah, the Prismacolor pencil crayons I use are a bitch to get to a fine point, they are so soft. I've cursed many a time.

    I have a range of pencils as well, though I find for regular drawing I only use 2 of them. Sketching I use more.

    Also, kneaded erasers>

    P.S. Putting some long overdue work into Ezio today. Want to get him finished soon.

    man i suck at coloring

    as good of an artist as i am, ive used penic crayons like 5 time and my coloring looked like shit

    i see some people use pencil crayons and they color amazing, im not sure what i do wrong, and im not talking about me coloring in random directions, it looks so shitty cuz i cant seem to produce the solid color, maybe its the texture of the paper i use?

    Or the brand name of pencil crayon. I also do mine in layers, and blend as I go.
