    I feel like I don't know what I'm doing while painting this one. Too much guessing. Gotta do more studies.

    tried to experiment a bit with lighting

    a couple studies



    I'm going to be away for a few days and probably won't draw during that time

    This may sound strange and metaphysical, but i find it hard to explain what I'm trying to say.

    How much time do you spend on doing master studies and/or drawing from reference as opposed to drawing from life?

    The reason I ask this is because your drawing strikes me as being somewhat flat. Even the works from imagination look like copied from photos. It's as if you think in 2d and don't imagine the objects and their volume in the space within the picture, as if instead you have a model of how shading on a cylinder looks, instead of imagining a cylinder and how light falls on it.

    It is most evident in pencil drawings. They have no depth to them.

    You should practice on feeling and then communicating depth in your pictures.

    The feeling part is somewhat simple - just look at objects. (OBJECTS FFS, NOT PICTURES) Look carefully at a coffee mug, or a headphone set, or whatever; and try to comprehend it's 3d form. Don't think about how to draw it, don't even look at the shading, don't worry about perspective, just try to imagine and understand its shape - touch it, take it and slowly turn it in your hands, look at it from different angles, feel which parts of it are closer, which further, close your eyes and imagine the object in your head, turn it in your head.

    The drawing part is the complicated one. You need to learn to translate the volumetric model of the object you have in your head into the drawing. Drawing isn't only about light and shading and proportions. Remember people telling you the paper is flat?.. Well that's UTTER BULLSHIT. It isn't. It's a space. It can be as deep as infinity. Look at a clean piece of white paper and imagine it as white fog - it's limitless. You just need to start thinking within that space, if you can imagine a 3d object in your head, you can imagine it within that white fog, then the only tricky part is bringing it out so that other people can see it...

    Some things to try would be to make line drawings without shading, trying to make them volumetric. One way to do this is via line weight, or to put it even simpler - line darkness. For example - take a 0.5mm mechanical pencil and draw a line going in random directions, start with very light pressure and slowly increase it gradually as you draw; when you look at the abstract line whatever you've just made, you will notice that the parts of the line that are darker seem closer, and the light marks - more distant. Or draw an elipse and make the closer edge gradually darker, it will seem closer. Now do the same with a drawing from life, making the darkness of the line correspond to the depth of the parts of the object you're drawing, almost like a depth map. Start with simple objects, as there's way too much stuff to distract you when drawing a portrait or a figure.

    Draw a few simple still lives from life, focusing on the volume. It'll teach you things much more important than anatomy.

    You can also try taking a painting of yours, painting a depthmap for it and making it into a cross-eye stereoscopic picture (here's a tutorial for how to do the technical part of it; make sure you pay more attention to making the depthmap than that if you want it to really work). It takes a bit of time, but it may be good practice.

    It's hard to express how helpful this comment was. I think it really opened my eyes. I agree completely that my drawings/paintings look flat and you are right that I rarely draw from life (this will change soon).
    I will definitely take your advices and make studies that you suggested.
    Thanks a lot

    I was thinking what Gerulaitis said. Trying to think more in 3d while drawing, but I guess it will take time and a lot of practice.

    from life



    from head



    sorry for bad quality

    Yes! Pagaliau daugiau tikrų daiktų! VVoo! Iškart pajutau atgaivą, hehe.

    Varyk, Tadai!

    Gerulaičio žinutė tikrai gera.
    Nors ne visiškai sutinku, kad pas tave plokšti darbai erdvine prasme. Man jie plokšti labiau tematine prasme, beeet, vis vien problemą jau atakuoji Gerulaičio patarimu daugiau dirbti su tikrais objektais, o ne kopijom, tad viskas zjb

    The still life looks great. The legs look a little stiff and static on the creature in post #284.

    self portrait
    I didn't get the likeness completely. I will do more of them in the future

    and a greyscale version that I think I like a bit more than one with colours

    Su EpicKey sutinku. Tikrai pereinant prie kitų temų naujo išmoksti greičiau.
    Bet va jis ir ėmesi kažko universalesnio ties saldainiu, SCART jungtimi, šautuvuku. Esmė tai tiesiog kad visokie monstrai, panelės šitoje bendruomenėje ir industrijoje jau tikrai baisiai atsibodę tematiškai ;D
    Manau, kad Tadas po truputį pradėjo ieškoti kažko kito Gerulaičio patarimo paskatintas. Bet pabrėžti tai, ką pabrėžei, visad naudinga, EpicKey.

    Toninis autoportreto variantas tikrai šaunus! Tetrūktų kokių detalyčių ant plaukų ties kirpčiukais ar ties temporal kampu, kad nesusiplokštintų ir nebūtų tokie išblukę plaukai.

    EpicKey, Litho, pradejau dabar bandyti piesti visokius dalykus kuriu anksciau nepiesdavau. Del pacios darbu tematikos, pritariu, kad monstrai, mergos ir t.t. yra nuvalkiota, bet tai, kas yra nenuvalkiota? man atrodo svarbu yra ne kazkoki originalu daikta piesimui issirinkti, o ji originaliai nupiesti. bent jau concept arte. nors man tas dalykas irgi pakolkas nelabai sekasi


    Architaylor, thanks. yeah, you are right. I just noticed you too This probably means that we will have to do an open canvas session sometime


    Stuff that I rarely draw. Everything from imagination, obviously
