Rocks are the best to draw! My first time doing a pageful of them.

Lighter sketch. Focused on getting the big things right and didn't worry about the details too much.
Eyes and noses practice
Learning skulls. Heads make much more sense now. Construction ok?
What do you think of this pear I painted?
I drew The Incom T-65 X-Wing Starfighter
Face studies continue. Still a little wonky at places and values are all over the place, but I feel progress and it feels good.
Snake anatomy study

Todays head sketches. Trying to loosen up a bit and not overthink the process.

Freehand sketch of a locomotive. Tried some of the techniques I've learned from Scott Robertsons book.
Finally used some reference to get more variety in my heads. I like the chubby one.
Line weight and adding to/cutting from a shape practice. Would like critique on the line weight.
Went outside and tried to draw the castle nearby.

Today I drew some leaves. Good practice, can recommend. Easy and fun too.
Can I get critique on these gesture drawings please?
This is Fiina. She is nine weeks old and she gets the hiccups when she's nervous.
Some quickish ballpoint sketches. Opinion on construction, proportion? Any advice welcome really.

Behold! My first ever hand drawing. I hope the only way is up from here.

Some of todays sketches. Used references to get more variety in my heads, as suggested here. I like the chubby one.
I call this one An accident. I would like advice on composition and maybe color. How could I make it more interesting without adding anything?
Electric motor parts

We bought a cheap bathroom rug and now it's her favourite napping spot. We can't close the bathroom door anymore.
Do you think it's weird to draw almost nothing but bald heads for half a year?
More ballpoint pen practice. Tried to follow the contours of the face to emphasize the form.
So I think it's done. Any constructive feedback would be great.
It's been a while since last post. Apart from baldness, how do you like these heads?
I've been practicing hands and I'd like some feedback please
Tried sketching with ballpoint pens
WIP portrait. Someone mentioned that the perspective is off and I'd like to have more detailed explanation for learning's sake.
How to better keep perspective consistent in freehand sketching? Also it's probably a good idea to always draw squares before ovals, right?
