All of these are from a drawing class that I'm taking this semester.














^ This was a copy of a professor's sketch that was in our campus gallery. He spent time as a doctor and then became an art teacher later in life.

They are mediocre drawings with really rough detail. The shapes and features seem irregular and the shading seems forced. It looks like there was not much effort put into these pieces at all. Just my opinion though

Keep practicing, they are pretty good. If you're planning to have a career in drawing they are going to want you to have fine lines/minimal lines and better shading and proportions.

I appreciate the constructive feedback! Yeah I know what you mean about the shading, especially the last one... that's the one I'm probably least happy with. It still has a lot of work to do.

And someone above mentioned me planning on a career in drawing, nope it's just a hobby. I wanted to take a Drawing class before I graduated.

Oh ok, just make sure you study perspectives and proportions, that will improve your drawings tremendously. Your cross hatching (line shading) is already good though and your proportion are exceptional.

nice bro, gonna need work and work at the hands and mouth pieces more. dont over shadow or shade, under do it so you can alway go back and improve, but once you over do it, it doesnt look as good going back.

i like #'s 1,2 and 4. I think the style is unique to you. I say draw how u see fit and not up to someone else's standards.

Thanks. It is nice to have a certain style, but then again it's tough to change it up when you need to. The sketch of the woman's face was really difficult for me.

do you just do pencil?
Yeah, just a pencil and eraser and a smudge stick to finish. I thought about getting into colored pencils or painting, but I don't think I could ever do those well.

Like everyone else is saying, you have a lot of potential.

You already have a distinct style so early in your development. I can tell you have a good hold on the fundamentals of shading and and line too.

Keep it up.

Do you think the style is too cartoonish? Besides the "Jamaica" pic.
