Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
Thanks, I'm so glad that I got to know Loomis in this forum!
I bought the "figures in action" book yesterday.
N1ck: ich geb mir Mühe, ich hoff auch dass ich bald mal umblättern kann und einen Fortschritt sehe
Edit: haha, juhu, das ist schon die zweite Seite!
Here some new things.

Guuut Johanna! Schau mal, dass du ne schöne, saubere Schraffur bekommst. Sieh dir mal an, wie die alten Meister schraffieren. Die machen oft diese Formschraffur um das Volumen gut darzustellen. Versuch das mal! Bisschen Geduld ist alles. :o
Los geht's, Große! ;D
Danke Juli, das sollte ich echt tun.. (wo kann man sowas gucken?) Wenn ich denn nicht immer zu faul wäre für die sorgfältigen Schraffuren...
I'm working on a new acryl-colors-on-canvas picture for school.
It has to be a mixture between a painting by Caspar David Friedrich and one by Rene Magritte.
I chose these two:
Der Wanderer über dem Nebelmeer (C.D.Friedrich)
Pandora's Box (?) (René Magritte)
and after ca 2 hours my painting looks like this: (bad picture)

didn't go as well as usually, I'm a bit tired today
my mouths suck.
and I can't draw self-portraits! It always looks like a little child or a man
I shouldn't be so impatient with drawing hair.. grrr
hm still not pleased with it..
Hmm, weird mouth.
(this is - or will be - a scarf under the chin, i have to finish it later)

The last one has areally cute style going on, and it's quite the cutie of a sketch, but...
I have to wonder... What is the purpose? To get a cute image drawn? A study of facial proportions? Shapes of the face?
It's a little hard to tell what was it drawn for, which implies that it was just "doodled"... If it's meant to be a study you should have a clear target of what you want out of it - and if you succeed in indulging in this, it will also be clear to the viewer what was the person who drew the picture thinking and doing and hoping to achieve/achieving... instead of just being something that was drawn for the sake of drawing.
(...and it can still be a real cute drawing too.)
Maybe that's a little abstact... eh.
yea, I think it was indeed just "doodled". Didn't think of anything special. But I can actually see your point, and thanks for that comment!
I think I just want to draw as much as I can at the moment, and always studies are a bit exhausting somehow..
But I also thought it would be kind of challenge to draw this 'puss' (haha silly word), because I have my problems with drawing mouths.
Ah maybe you're right and I should focus more on the effect that a picture or study should have, otherwise I have always the same style and just copy photos. Should draw more 'from life'-things. And not always faces.
I have a lot of work to do, glad I have holidays since yesterday
more more more
Ha ich sehe schon Loomis studies ich behalte dich im auge aber bleib fleißig am ball denn in deinen lines zeigt sich schon sklill aber manchmal sieht es so aus als ob die charakter in 2 stücken gezeichne wurden (5.10 unten links der nach hinten lehnende sehr stark zb. oder der die pose links davon die uns den rücken zuwendet.. sein rechtes bein wirkt nicht zugehörig ), achte auf einen genrellen flow also zeichne erst grobestrukturen (so wie bei dem post 34 unten die vereinfachten skelette von deinen loomis studies)
dann wird das schon
Ich schau demnächst mal wieder vorbei
btw schön mal eine deutsche zeichnerein hier zu treffen gibts ja nicht alle tage ^^
woah ja, du hast Recht. Grade der, der sich nach hinten lehnt, sieht echt krüppelig aus es wäre echt besser, die Posen erst vereinfacht und dafür mit den richtigen Proportionen zu zeichnen, ich bin nur immer zu ungeduldig Ich bemüh mich.
Vielen Dank für deinen Post, echt. Ich schau mich dann mal noch ein bisschen in deinem SB um
Danke.. hat uns echt Nerven gekostet der Spaß :p. Aber meine Mutter hat uns immerhin gut bezahlt ;D.
Jaah.. artworkshop, klar! Komm her und los gehts! Noch sind Ferien
puh i wasn't at home for a week and i don't have anything new. A lot to do for school, 3 months till Abitur
I'll post some new stuff soon.
god, i'm lazy.
well, the first time in my life that i used ball pen and water colors to draw a portrait. Looks scary.
I have so many problems with the proportions.. can do all these funny studies, but I seem not to understand it properly...
Yeah, I know, draw, draw, draw, those mannekins and so on.
But I've realized that I like the ball-pen more than pencils, although it is a bit more difficult for me (not having the possibility of erasing..).
And my sketchbook is so boring, I think I have to try other medias when I've finished school in March.
Well, some wimpy doodles:
1. left side: from life (in school, maths suck)
right side: from photo (characterdesigns.com)
3. just playing around with marker... but i don't really like it
2.: different perspectives, same face.
still alive... but still lazy.
i got to know posemaniacs.com, but 30 secs are really too quick for me. I took 90secs.
Hui, somebody was in my sketchbook
thanks a lot. That reminds me of posting
(i have much to do to get a better line quality...!)
I don't have a scanner anymore since I moved to my own appartement.
I like it.
last week i was at a seminar, so i drew everybody sitting around and listening to interesting stuff.
I hate drawing feet... have to work on that.

Great studys Ploepp, you've shown clear progress even on page one, and your line quality while drawing is defiantly improving.
Keep working at it
-Sketch Book Updated Sporadically-
Tumbler & Wookmark (finished pieces and Cool stuff I find)
-Facebook(always on but never post)-
If you see me on FB, or CA Talk to me, never to busy to talk and love to hear from you, chat me up about anything (Music, Games, art, ect)
If anyone is interested in streams or hangouts let me know!
Thanks for posting, Demo! I really appreciate that.
I hate updating without a scanner...
Was ist neu in Deutschland?
Ich habe 12 jahre deutche lernen in die Schule aber hab das nie praktisch benutzen. Ich hoffe du verstehe was ich schreibe
Hey, anyway I know English much better, so I want to say something about your sketchbook. It is not great of course, cause you have to practice a lot and you have to put a lot of your free time to make things better. I hope that you will not give up from your daily drawings and that on the 6th sketcbook page you will throw out superb stuff. I believe in you.
Thanks a lot, LtPlissken!
Natürlich verstehe ich dich
You are absolutely right, i really have to spend more time with drawing. I'm very unmotivated the last time, don't have a clear aim, that's not really good. I need someone to kick my ass
if i need so much time for a page 3, 4 or even 6,as i needed for two pages, then i can't improve much. So I have to start NOW and get some more pages! Maybe I have to kick my own ass, might be difficult, but possible.
I doodled a bit today, but nothing that is worth to be posted.
Well, okay, some posing and Simon the Sorcerer IV crap.
