    next day, next sketch
    The subject is Gale Harold, one of my girlfriend's favourite actors, so I'll have to get detailed this time (and fix those proportional issues I can already see).
    I used the method described above, and I used that diamond-shaped brush Odin recommended
    Here is the base sketch:

    And here is the smudged version:

    back to the basics

    I started to read Loomis's books and as they seem to be pretty cool stuff, I decided to read them.
    Or at least that one about portrait drawing.
    And the other one about figure drawing...
    Well, I'm likely to read them all :-)
    Not too detailed this time, just some rough sketches for practice

    Someone's making progress here! Good going with those fundamentals, I think everyone reaches the point where they find out it's useless without, and the earlier you start with that, the faster your other stuff will improve as well! Keep em coming!

    some daily crap
    one minute pose sketches (okay, some of them took one and a half minute to draw - one minute is so freakin' short!)

    Looking good dude, try and use long single curvy lines on the figures, they will become faster and you will lose that 'choppy' line look. keep posting ;-)

    some anatomy from Loomis and two ten minute posemaniacs studies - that's all for today. I hope that I can be more productive at the weekend

    Hey noverbert,

    The studies are looking good. Just to make sure, do you know what Loomis is doing with those regulating lines bisecting the figure? It's good, whenever you post, to sort of expound upon what you've learned, so we know you're not just copying down Loomis's illustrations.

    I also concur with RandAlThor. It would be highly advantageous for you to start drawing full bodied expressive lines instead of hatching out the boundaries for the figure. Being able to define your object with longer, more expressive lines will ultimately make your subject more dynamic and solid. When you hatch your lines, it breaks up the reading of the figure, and subject reads with less identity.

    Thanks for the comment, Odin.
    Of course I know what are those lines about - I don't just copy Loomis's drawings but I try to read every explanation of him (or at least those, wich seem to be important). Currently I'm trying to learn the proportions of the human body and I don't want to advance to other things till I'm fully confident with them.

    About line quality: I can clearly see that I definitely need to improve in this respect - but I don't really know how. Drawing with a tablet is not like drawing on paper. I mean the surface of the tablet is kinda sticky, and I can't really draw long strokes so easy as on paper (of course I can, but they aren't as smooth as they should be). How could I solve this problem? Should I wear a glove on my drawing hand or something? Or is it okay to draw with little strokes, but I should clean up the mess in the end with an eraser? (I use sketchbook pro btw)
    Maybe my problem is that I don't have any free space on my desk so I keep my tablet in my lap when I'm drawing. (this causes that my arm get really tired after a few hours of drawing) Should I use another desk to draw on (on wich I could put my tablet)? What is the proper method to use a tablet anyway? Give me some recommendations, please!

    Daily stuff.

    Yeah,yeah I know it's not too much but I couldn't draw more as the driver of my bamboo is crashing in every minute. (that's the reason of the sketchiness of the last figure - I drew it without pressure sensitivity)
    I am very pissed off.
