    You came with some very strong creature concepts and you're getting better and better and better at human figure.

    I still miss some contrast on paintings, mostly on creatures IMO.

    Ok, again back from work. I didn't draw anything for a month - darn i really admire people who managing to work daily and draw\paint after. But at last i've earned enough cash to buy new bigger tablet. All these time i was drawing on small size Intuos. Its not a wrong tool, except that you are loosing a lot of time by zooming + you are working only with your wrist.

    Few doodle's for warming up before my new tablet arrives

    Well, it's good you came back after a month.

    A strong kick in the ass, eh?

    One thing you might need to do is change your way of thinking there. Instead of looking to outside sources (like a few people here on CA.org) to set your art wheels in motion... generate that motion inside yourself.

    In other words, find a way to kick your own ass. Ultimately, it's what every successful artist has to do is to gain mastery over his or her own mind. Do you have the little "I'm tired! I want to go to bed early" voice in your head? How about the one that says "Just one more video game, then we'll draw?"

    Don't allow those voices any entry in your mind. Shove all of those unwanted actors off the stage, growl as loudly as you can into the mic "I'm in charge here!" and intimidate all of the voices trying to get you from stopping drawing. Be the Alpha Dog of your own brain!

    Then just start drawing. Don't feel like it? Doesn't matter. Start drawing anyway. But don't just doodle. Make your mind solve some drawing problems. Even little drawing problems like--how do I make this box look like it has volume? Or, how can I draw the edge of this cloud so it looks like it will blend in better?

    If you fail at those things? Good! That means you're making progress--you're hitting the razor's edge of your abilities and dis-abilities.. meaning, you're finding your weaknesses. YOU are ferreting them out. And what is going to defeat them? 1 ounce of Careful analysis and 10 tons of effort. That's it.

    That's how you teach yourself to draw.

    Do this every day. Commit to it. Do it for yourself. Just believe. Believe even for a short while. No excuses. See how far you get in a month. I'll bet that if you start that, you won't need any external motivation after a month... because you'll be on a roll.


    Good luck!

    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    Thanks p sage!

    That's some really interesting crit. Kinda silly because I like myself to advise my friends: Don't search for source of power in the others but in yourself instead. Dammit didn't realized that actually I am not better, and my sb description proves that

    I found your blog quite interesting it seems that you really like to THINK, I'll keep an eye on it.


    Thanks FROZ3N!

    I am really happy with my larger tablet. Working on small one made me some silly contusion called tenis elbow. I guess using bigger tablet didn't really makes you better artist , but for sure its more healthy for your hand.

    Steve Buscemi portrait. One of my favor actors.

    Nice update! It's awesome to see the evolution that is going on within your sketchbook
    Man, it's such a great idea to practice figures in perspective. That's something that I'm always just failing at. I should really do some of those. You're doing pretty good at them already.

    Keep up the momentum

    Really great improvement man! love everything in post #213 ! now you can slowly incorporate the soft brush in studies finding lost edges and the like,
    i like the tip you gave me about forms that's what i always try to thing about, also gestures/ subject matters gesture seems to ground them, if that makes sense.

    keep well, cziesc

    i haven't visited this SB for a while now and, oh man, you improved A LOT! yours figure drawings are looking way better now. latest cow creature have something from pokemon designs (it's not a bad thing tho ),but work a bit more on the front legs, as they seems to be missing joints.

    ecki Thanks After long time of drawing blobs i finally realized that literally everything what we see\draw is deformed by perspective. Without paying attention to it i will keep drawing blob, after blob... that's guaranteed. My brain really need to get used to paying attention on perspective.

    AdrianNagorski Thanks man Uff need to finally start doing gestures either. Want to start from some basic solid standing poses. Because i really feel that I'm bad at them. Which is kinda embarrassing because standing character dude or gal...it seems to be such a basic thing But its actually not that easy for everyone.

    Betty86 Thanks for stopping by! Haha i think i will start watching some pokemon soon, I've already heard from someone (on digart or somewhere) that one of my creature reminds a pokemon Nice progress with animations! Got your youtube channel subscribed(mandigal).

    Small update probably I'll work on these portrait a bit more later on + wip for latest CHOW.

    Very noice stuff..Liked the Buschemi portait He has a very distinct face which is hard to capture and you made him look recognizable. I gotta ask tho, do you block in or sketch with the lasso tool b/c alot of the sketches have sharp geometric shapes if so thats pretty cool way to do it.

    Another thing I like about your work is the looseness in all the sketches.

    Wow, lovely portrait I really love the brush strokes. They are pretty loose, yet they seem very deliberate and stylish, keep at it

    The thing about "everything being in perspective" is something with which I struggle like crazy when it comes to figure drawing. I started with lots of manga some time ago and everytime I draw a figure I resort back to 2D-manga-thinking. It's almost painful to keep the 3D thinking up for 10+ sketchbook pages. I've gotten a little better now (after filling 1/2 sketchbook with that stuff), but I can't wait to leave that 2D thinking behind :/

    I wish you a lot of luck and mainly endurance on your way through that stuff

    Dom Ross Yup recently I'm using lasso tool a lot. I really like it because it helps me with finding the forms.

    Uff i don't update these sketchbook as often as i should. Been really busy lately. Lets update it for the sake of update Technician of the lost civilization wips. + latest COW.

    My battle with chupacabra. Eventually I've decided to go with grayscale first. Build some proper lightning, values before adding colors. Updates will be made soon.
