    Thanks for checkin in on my sb!
    Really liking those arm studies on page 2 man! You seem to use hatching alot in your sketches, I think it would be beneficial if you started to use the lines to follow the forms of what youre shading. Its amazing to see the difference of lines that follow the forms and ones that dont. Im actually working on a charcoal piece in class and theres a part of a form that is almost completely pitch black, but but making the strokes follow the form its easily seperated from the flat background strokes.
    Line exercises?
    Id say do lots of contour drawings. Dont lift your pencil up at all; one long fluid line. work with pressure and line variation aswell and in no time you will have really strong lines : D
    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

    Good luck getting into the Environmentoring Class 2, but I think you'll get in.

    Great looseness in the last enviornment...I like how it is held togethere by the atmosphere and nice color choices. It really shows how important the base sctrucutre you work from is. I think it got foggy a little fast, maybe preference though.

    I see those movie studies as being very benificial for lighting and color, and that you've kept the time frame for each short to support that. great.

    Impressive improvement-- try using less lines in those fast gesture studies. Sometimes gestures can be as minimal as 2 or 3 long lines. Also, I don't think any bitmap programs like Photoshop and OC will save JPEGS with layers. It flattens everything. Keep it up!

    Been experimenting with a little freeware tool called Artweaver today. Seems cool, like a Photoshop-Painter-Hybrid (I don't have either). The brush system is nice, but new to me, as I've only been using SAI and openCanvas, which don't work spacing-based.
    So here's some quick thumbnails, trying to get some brush settings I like:

    Wow, so many replies!


    ItalianHorsey, thank you, yeah, figures are what i need to improve right now the most besides enviros, and it's fun! Will do some more detailed ones soon.
    Nistarn, thanks mate
    smid, thank you, grils are alway fun to draw, aren't they?
    yinteck, thanks!
    Flutic, thank you very much, I'm always so happy to hear I improve


    Well the hot phase of my exam period is starting, so I don't really have much time, but here's a chick i managed to throw in when studying assembler programming with my buddies at university, first time drawing with a ballpoint pen too, feels cool, kinda like pencil...
    Attachment 300701
    Also did some Vanderpoel studies today, trying to get my hatching follow the forms, was amazed by how hard it was, it forces you to think a lot about the actual forms, really great, will do that always from now on....
    Attachment 300700

    I actually felt like shit today, having headache and whatnot, but it's better now after drawing and listening to Yoko Kanno and reading the replies to my sketchbook

    Loolarge, thanks a bunch man

    Had my exam in machine oriented programming today, it was hell. They asked stuff we weren't taught yet, as it's a third semester's subject, and I am first semester, and 90 minutes were much to little time, and everybody think they failed But I at least solved 4 out of 6 tasks and could draw on the way home, so it was alright.

    Here's sketches on the bus. I am amazed how easy this follow-the-forms hatching is, how much it improves the workflow, and how much better it looks.
    Attachment 301516

    And vanderpoel studies.
    Attachment 301517

    And poses, 60 seconds. reached 500, yaaay. And I learned something important when doing these today, I start to look for specific aspects of the pose, how the energy flows in the figure. Hard to describe, i shall do more of these. I also feel I begin to understand things about lineweight and emphasis I didn't understand before. Aaah makes me wanna practice so much more.

    this book was perfect for me. i'm going through the same journey myself, and you've given me some hope again.

    if i may ask, where did you get all of those references for your figure studies?
    you have hundreds of them.

    awesome. thanks

    Lotet, thanks, I will
    skorpi, cool, you're there to? Thanks for stopping by!

    So here's some messy sketches done on the bus...

    And some Vanderpoel studies, came out rather... not so good...
    Attachment 302282
