Newbie looking for feedback

Started drawing about 3 1/2 years ago (2009). I feel like I'm hitting a wall and could use some feedback to hopefully move on. Thank you for your time and consideration. Thinking seriously about taking some lessons or a class. Jeff

Re: Newbie looking for feedback

Your drawings are really good and you have been at it longer than me, so no advice really, just applause for a good job well done.

Re: Newbie looking for feedback

Same as Larc said,you've been drawing longer than me too. It's the choice of subject that I feel is more important as you progress..always something that will push you harder,I think my last subject killed me though.

Re: Newbie looking for feedback

These are really good, and I'm impressed at the timescale. Only advice I could give is to maybe keep your pencils sharp for the more finely detailed parts to get more contrast and a richer appearance. But thats not a criticism, they are great as they are.

Welcome.

"Thank you for your kind comment on my work, I suffered from "everyone's better than me syndrome" but am slowly coming to realise that I'm not actually in competition with anyone."


Thanks Carl. Your comment, and Russ's, have really got me thinking. I suffer from the same condition, but hadn't really thought about. I read somewhere that the problem with comparing yourself to a Master, is that you will always feel inferior. I think that a lot of this is really mental. Thanks again, Jeff

Re: Newbie looking for feedback

I think these are brilliant without a doubt! I've been drawing for longer than you and I openly admit you're more advanced than me, I think that with you "hitting a brick wall" the best advice would be to challenge yourself, aim for a bigger scale and focus more on intricate detail, if you Google "Hyper-realistic portraits" you can see what can be accomplished on a much broader scale, obviously these are by some remarkable artists but if you've got the time and perseverance you could be one of them.
Also from the photo's (I'm probably wrong as you've been drawing for three years and you've obviously drawn more than three pictures) but it looks like you're limiting yourself to graphite?, You should try different mediums like Charcoal or oil paints just to mix it up a little so you don't get bored, maybe instead of lessons, you should go to life drawing classes, draw what you see and be inspired by the styles of other people to try out different styles of drawing.

Anyway, as I said earlier these are brilliant drawings, I think your brick wall maybe just a lapse of inspiration, it will soon come back.
Treat others as you'd wish to be treated.
