Ok. Iīll been drawing like thereīs no tomorrow for a month or so, letīs say... 10 hours per day, and this is, more or less, the progress so far in hands.
A month ago:
Is really tough for me assist to my local art school, and not learning a single dammit thing about drawing. At times I feel really disappointed with my life. You know, Iīm trying to learn everything I can. Iīm really into it, but looks like nobody can help me ever.
Places like this, make my day when the frustration comes. ĄI will never give up!

You can see the progress on the hands. Try drawing your own hands. I drew my left hand over 70 times and you can see the improvement from the 1st to the recent, it is really good practice. Keep posting!
I'm only 15 and would like some comments/critiques/tips so CHECK OUT MY SKETCHBOOK! Please =] http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=117399

hola. gracias que miraste mi sketchbook.
me gustan tus estudios, y recomiendo que continues con ellos. si continuas, tendras mucho exito en dibujando , ya veo que tu puedes dibujar formas diferentes, por ejelmplo los de esta pagina: http://img172.imageshack.us/img172/9918/ske03ro8.jpg
si te gusta construir el cuerpo de formas diferentes (cubos, piramedes, etc.) mira los libros de bridgman, son buenos tambien y pueden ayudarte mucho.
p.s. espero que todo fue bien escrito en espanol tambien.

Here we are with the uplate...
Looooong, looooooooooooong time absent form posting... haha :p . Well I have a pretty busy time the past months as a graphic designer. Pros: I saved a lot, and have a new computer with a BIG (man, itīs huge) screen "24. (Good for painter and digital renderings). The other side is: Almost no time to draw a single line in all this time!. I know the last post is from MARCH (man, Iīm really ashamed), but... Itīs time to get back here to my SB and start working my ass on it.
voetsek: Whoa, yeah, Spainsh is my 1š language , and your reply is nicely written, but one of the things I look here at CA is improving my english skillz, writing and so, so pardon me, but I reply you in the Shakespeare language :p.
And the updates (something big...):
A fractal I made with UltraFractal in a little spare time:
Graphic Design Section. Possible Personal WebPage1:
This one gonna be final:
A Logo for class assignment:
This one is my friend from school, caricature mode in Ps. :p
Quick painter cloud study:
A bird, linoimpression:
Some Birds Chinese style Ink over paper...:
Analogic Escher with color pencils:
Chunli lineart, scanned, and some starting colors in Painter (Yes, this ones need to be finished... too)
And the goodīold sketches and concepts... traditional goes here :p :
And my rendition to MagicMan: A litography (class asignm) of one of his pencils works. Your sb may be gone from CA, but you changed my life.
You know... I have more but... I think itīs ok for now.

hola! it seems like you like to explore a lot of different materials/medias i like that, it shows openmindedness and interrest! the fractal is very intersting and that carricature is really nice!
I think its good to study anatomy but I learned for me that using those popular stick figures dont really add to your knowledge (I tried to learn to draw comics a long time ago and a had a book with those blocky shaped stick figures) while they somehow teach poportions and some of them show a masses they are a bit to blocky and inaccurate for my opinion, my advice is to study from people being it from life or from photo reference, notice how in every pose every body part looks a bit different, if a man raises his arms then his pecs will be stretched out an less defined but if he has his elbows at his hips the pectoralis muscle will show. all im saying is that learning from stick figures will slow you down (in my opinion) rather than give knowledge
keep it up!

Thank you for you kind words man. Since I almost entirely self-taught I tried a lot of different approaches on drawing humans, and as a result, I ended like many other self-taught artists: Knowing nothing about the human figure but trying desesperate to draw it. Im now into anatomy, and I hope it will pay off sonner or later.
Find a little Proudīhonīs quote, and I want to share here in CA:
"If you canīt know it, you canīt draw it, except by accident"
If you want to become a real artist, you need as many basis covered as you can. This is just as it sounds, and having a good hand at drawing is almost as important as having a good eye for color, or good perspective / anatomy / composition knowledge. So yes. A hell of homework ahead!.
I really want to do more and more life studies, but I think Iīm not ready to do them. Most of the human body is unknow for myself, and now in winter, with no subway here, is difficult to find a free spot (and warm) to sit down and draw countless hours. :/ . I want too, do some shots at painter, copying master studies or whatever, but I pretty wide mind, Itīs difficult to me to stick at only one subject. I need to improve my concentration as well. I really need to set a work plan for the day and stick to it. :p
This one is very very manga-ish, but despite the style is just I donīt know how to draw faces and so, more realistically, what is my ultimate goal. By the way, I have a LOT more doodle pages, but them just sucks.
