First of all, welcome to Newgrounds and welcome to the art forum. It's always a pleasure to receive new artists like you here.

I couldn't stop notice in your gallery that you have several pieces, but apparently you haven't mark them as public and your pieces will guarantee you an scout to the art portal. For more info about the marvelous art portal, check here and here.

Thanks for the advice (took me a few noobishly slow minutes to find the public setting)

I think you should start doing some life studies with your digital works. You learn so much about lighting when drawing from life taht its not even funny. Not only that but you learn alot about tonal differences.

Also if your jack representation is supposed to be realistic why didn't you draw a realistic skull and skeleton to go with it?

Or are you just looking for more depth? A 3d figure? I'm not too sure.

I think life studies would do you alot of help, they help everyone. I have been doing life studies for one week and i already feel myself improving as an artist.

This is what i do. I draw a vertical and a horizontal line. The horizontal line resembles my objects width the vertical line my objects height. I then draw dashes in appropriate places to mark locations that change in form for my own knowledge. Then i do a gestural drawing inside those lines.

I continue my gestural drawings (on seperate paper) until i find the porpotions i like the most and know how to recreate it. Then i start drawing my still life with the knowledge i learned before. On my still life i also do a gestural drawing before i start sketching out my drawing.

My last drawing took up about 5 pieces of paper doing gestural drawings then the final piece. The one i did with spoons i did 20 gestural drawings before i did my still life.

The whole point to the gestural drawing phase is to get your structure and proportions down, also do them on the side of your pencil so you can do it fast. Try to minimize the amount of strokes you do to improve line quality.

Just some stuff for your own knowledge since im not sure if you meant freshman in college or high school.

I meant college, but hey i never turn down the chance to learn for free! especially since i'm paying a pretty penny just to learn math and philosophy now.

Most all of my method is purely digital now, but the processes behind your technique still hold true. i'm just thinking that the shading in my images still remains the major difference, since i do a flat color image and then throw the highlight whites and shadow blues in different layers then turn down the opacity.
