View Full Version : moving.pictures' studies (long time no see, going at it again!!)
October 17th, 2009, 01:21 PM
So here i am, folks :D
just a basic introduction, to get it over with :P
I'm 24 years, living in Vienna, currently in nurse school and trying my best to live life to the fullest :P
I've been in love with CG for a long time now (~6 years) but i've never got the balls to try it myself - well, i've tried my hands on 3dsmax a few years back but never got past amateurish stuff so i dropped it again, and then in the last 2 years or so i've really fallen in love with 2D (concept) art and since then i've been on and off this site making my way through all of the awesome sketchbooks and the finally finished section :teeth:
and then it happened...as i was doodlin' around in class this spring it finally hit me: "aarrrgh, dude, you can't draw sh*t!! DO SOMETHING!!"
so, in the next days i've started my lifelong journey of learning the tools of the trade...been loving it ever since...so here we go, i'll divide my scans over the next few posts...come take a look, tell me what you think and most importantly give me honest feedback to help me make the most out of it!
thank you guys, see you around,
UPDATE: 05.07.2011 SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR NEW STUFF!!

so here we go, the next images cover the time between mid-april to end-of-june :teeth: my humble beginnings if you will :D
it's not too much, i admit, it was kind of hard for me to keep it rolling :D
October 17th, 2009, 01:39 PM
Excellent life drawings, but you might want to study color theory when you get the chance.
October 17th, 2009, 01:39 PM
next images cover the summer holidays...because of my injury (broke my collar bone - gahhh, stupid dave :D) i was basically at home all the time so these were really productive days :D
October 17th, 2009, 01:46 PM
so then, here's the last batch covering stuff from mid-august until now :D
October 17th, 2009, 01:50 PM
yeah, thanks dude :D but, i don't have a tablet yet, so it's all graphite for now :D hope to get a tablet at the end of the year so i'm trying to get the basics down to be able to dive right into colour theory :D

nice bill murray sketches ;) and the portraits look awesome, primarily the second! would love to see more of them, so keep up the good work!
October 19th, 2009, 05:05 PM
puh, kinda slow day today, wish i'd drawn more, dammit...anyways, small update, nothing fancy, just some facial expressions referenced with the help of a small mirror on my desk, let me tell you, it's wasn't easy drawing from a mirror, not used to that and all that frowning made my face hurt, haha :P
October 20th, 2009, 05:31 AM
holy... this killer look on the right bottom scares the shit out of me :D nicley done!
October 24th, 2009, 11:09 PM
You have some really good things going on.. I'm especially fond of the 50's style lady and the portrait of the man right after that. I've noticed though that you tend to get a stiff look and there are some proportion problems. My advice that is when you start out on a portrait, don't move into the individual features for a while. Move around the whole portrait, find the relationships between things like the jaw bone and the cheekbones and as they become accurate they will tell you where the individual features are. Hope that helps!

just a few studies and the failed attempt at a portrait, tried to use the previous shading techniques for coloured paper but forgot to keep track of the proportions and now the eyes are waaaayyy to big, so damn it :teeth:

here's my take for today's self-portrait day, love those old school aviator goggles so i had to put them in :teeth: done in a couple of hours with pencils and charcoal on pastel paper :)
November 1st, 2009, 02:19 PM
Good job man, very nice self-portrait .. I like your drawing style.
keep it up...
November 5th, 2009, 11:09 PM
Nice work Moving pictures. I like your studies the most. Try to work on those more.
November 9th, 2009, 02:47 PM
figured i need to really get the basics together to ever take a shot at the art department and put together a decent portfolio so for the next few weeks i'm gonna do mostly studies - beginning with the skull and moving on to the neck/shoulders over the next days :) my goal is to finish basic human anatomy in a month and then begin extensive figure drawing & character studies :) and i'll try to fit in a few personal works for fun as well, so bear with me :D
November 9th, 2009, 06:11 PM
so here we go, last update for today, gonna continue the head studies tomorrow :)
November 9th, 2009, 06:22 PM
nice skull studies dude! i love the style of the second piece (first skull study) - they should find the way into drake's diary in uncharted 3 :D
November 24th, 2009, 11:29 PM
woah, it's been two weeks already, sorry for the lack of updates...life's kinda got me on my balls right now, and not to mention my drowning in school assignments lately, and to make it all worse i'm now tired all the time and seem to lack the energy to do anything lately...puh, gotta figure this mess out :D well anyways, i still did a few studies in the last 2 weeks so i'm kinda proud that i was able to pull that off what with all the "other" things in the back of my head
so as you can see i continued to do my studies and the more i draw the more committed i get to see it all through, and to be honest i really had fun trying to recreate these detailed anatomic drawings :)
and yeah, i know, the most difficult part is not to let go of the big picture, the primary goal still is and should be understanding the human form and enabling me to draw better/correct anatomy, so as soon as i'm finished with the muscle studies i'm gonna tackle a few referenced/imaginative figure drawings...hope the studies will help me then :)
NEXT UP: MUSCLES OF THE HEAD/NECK AND TORSO :D
by the way, if you're interested, reference was taken from these books:
- joseph sheppard: anatomy - a complete guide for artists
- gottfried bammes: der nackte mensch
- gray's anatomy 20th edition
so here we go...
November 25th, 2009, 02:26 AM
so here goes the follow-up, two rather crummy muscle studies, but you get the idea, more to come of course :-)
November 25th, 2009, 07:17 PM
wow, nice update man! with all these studies i'm looking forward to see the figure drawings! good work, keep it up!
January 6th, 2010, 10:14 PM
Very nice study, definitely going in the right direction,
July 5th, 2011, 07:42 AM
wow, it really has been too long! well, anyway, here's what i've been up to these past months, nothing too fancy, just trying to get back into the game. Here are some figure drawings (A4 size) i did last year, took me like 2 weeks each and strechted over 2-3 months till december.

From january to february i continued my anatomy studies:
July 5th, 2011, 08:03 AM
For christmas i finally got a wacom tablet (i3) but it took me awhile to even get started drawing digitally...tried myself on a figure study in color, oh my what a hassle it was, took me like 30h to get to this stage, so much for a "quick" figure drawing
July 5th, 2011, 08:05 AM
Then i tried myself on a simple colour study:
July 5th, 2011, 08:10 AM
After some inactive weeks i did a few figure studies again and noticed how hard it was without the constant practice
July 5th, 2011, 08:13 AM
Your studies anatomy are looking really good. Your definitely improving. Try to be careful with the relationships in your forms and be sure to double check you measurements. I like your second large figure study the best I think. Keep at those studies!
July 5th, 2011, 08:13 AM
continued anatomy studies from april to may:
July 5th, 2011, 08:19 AM
here are some figure drawings i did to practice my digital pen wielding skills because i found it really uncomfortable at first and at times even now, i still prefer a simple pencil over the digital pen...so yeah, this more or less everything i did since my last update 2009, so f***, really hit a bad phase in my life and now i'm trying to get back on track...here we go again!!! :teeth:
July 6th, 2011, 01:50 PM
wow. loving all these technical studies dude. glad you are posting again. it seems like you are motivated more than ever :D let's see some imaginative stuff now? :)
July 7th, 2011, 09:35 AM
nice update dude! i like those digital figure studies the most - simple but authentic! nice work, keep 'em coming ;)
