I am not sure how much this applies to you Ten, so apologies if I'm being presumptuous, but I think it's important to know and I do see you are focusing quite a bit on figure drawing at what appears...
Drawing what you like is certainly important, so glad to see you are mixing it up :)
As far as practice goes, it's not the volume of exercises you do that will help you to get...
SketchBook: Istmin52, The rhythms in your gestures are...
The rhythms in your gestures are fluid and dynamic, which is very nice. However, it’s not quite carrying over to the more fleshed out drawings, especially those from imagination. This is...
Don’t get too frustrated, it will take time, and it’s great to see some kind of work, whatever it is.
It would help to try and work on certain skills individually instead of trying...
I can see some of the exercises showing through. Its quite early still, so the challenge will be to keep at it and see just how focused you can get those lines to be. Its alright if...
It’s pretty impressive the difference between those two model sketches, so great job on progressing this far in such a short time.
Here are a few suggestions that came to mind...
As far as practice goes, based on what you’ve posted so far I would recommend starting with line exercises. I would not worry about practicing anything else just yet, though by all...

Nah, it's not bad. That's a decent study, as are the ones above it. In this 40 min one, the top of the cup is a fairly decent ellipse, so is the top of the egg cup. The bottom of the egg cup is a bit...

Good studies as others have mentioned. It will take a while to learn good shading techniques, but here are a couple of things I think could have helped to elevate the dust pan sketch:...

This is mostly in response to post #205, just fyi.
Regarding the first two sketches… I think you have more or less understood the basic process, and now just need to learn how to...
Good updates shoebill. I just wanted to make two quick points...
- Whether you're drawing people from life or studying anatomy, it may help to focus in on certain features of a person. Find...
Not much to add. Just wanted to say those last sketches turned out good! Keep at it :)

Regarding the controller, yes, like that and keep looking for other shapes in positive and negative space. And of course, since the initial shapes are just inaccurate estimations that...

The crane looks good, shoebill. And yeah, shapes will definitely be more difficult to pick up when observing a real life subject. I'm not sure what your current process is, but something like this...

Yes. And the same for the alignment of the pin tips to avoid that zig-zag. Your knowledge of the structure of the object and of perspective should give you hints about how to draw it, and you can...

shoebill, thanks very much for posting such a detailed account of your process. If this is how you normally work, then I think youre alright as far as starting lightly goes.
With this latest...

Ah, well done for posting that. Could you also post a more detailed closeup photo of the plug? Doesn't have to be in the same position, though might help a bit if it was close.

You do not need to get each stroke done in one go. In fact, you shouldn't, it's a totally unnecessary habit. Instead, just start very very lightly. Even draw with red or grey conte to...
There is good work here. However, it’s stagnating a bit. You have a decent skillset built up for designing and drawing mechanical machines, which is great. But here are a few things you can and...

You could create a separate drawing or draw overtop the gesture if you draw it lightly enough. Exaggeration is good for that. The initial stage gestures are in large part meant to describe things...
September 10th, 2014
Good, good. Keep at it. Don't forget to really question the shapes you draw versus the shapes you see. Is this one elongated enough? Does that two-part one have both parts at the right sizes to each...
September 8th, 2014
Excellent idea :)
Four feet might be a bit close for capturing the full figure. In a class you could easily be two or three times that distance, depending on how much room there is. It may also be...

Here is a nice video I found showing most of what I have described, done by a very talented painter: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGcUqYDCfKE
Note just how often he is turning his head back and...
I hate to stir the pot (or does he :devil:) but I was really digging the original design. It's a more unconventional character that is interesting and has specific mannerisms that imply personality....

You mentioned that you are having trouble getting drawing from life to look correct. I hope this helps you out a bit...
Before starting a drawing and periodically throughout it,...
