    Charcoal drapery studies from life, about 20 minutes each...
    Attachment 286404

    And what the hell is this. 55 minutes wasted on this one. But I'm glad i did. I learned a lot about charcoal, and that i need to focus more on anatomy.

    One day, I'm gonna be an awesome artist. I'm dead serious. I'll just keep practicing until then.

    Wow im impressed with how good some of your digital is, to me it feels like its ahead of your pencils.

    What I don't see in the drawings is more solid rendering..even though they are fast. I do like the overall style of how you do it, and its getting MUCH better as seen in post # 50...but it seems you dont have as much focus when it comes to describing the forms.

    If your going to try the cross-hatch style of quick shading, might I suggest that you further alternate and think about your angles a bit more (going 90 degress and making a checkboard pattern is kind of flat to me), it can be pretty powerful and descriptive if you stroke in the direction the form flows...might need to make your lines closer together so its more consistent.

    Otherwise your new eye studies are pretty dead on, and your great at the non referenced faces at this stage!

    RandAlThor, thanks dude!
    Jakers, thank you for coming back! About the digis, well I lack foundations in basically everything, but the the second half of the last year I worked almost only digital, so maybe that's the reason. Thanks for the advice regarding the pencil stuff! It's true, I LOVE the way cross hatching looks, I wanna learn that too, so your tips are most valuable, thanks!


    Here's today's stuff, first, Vanderpoel studies:

    And then, to test out and strengthen what I learned, non-reffed digi faces:

    Great sketchbook here, very inspirational.
    Your digitals and your pencils are also improving nicely.
    And the amount of work you're doing is jaw-dropping.
    I hope you will draw more full renderings with pencil and not just anatomy studies.
    I think you're on the good way to become a great artist. Keep up the good work!

    Btw: Could you recommend some good anatomy books? (Is that Bammes book you often mention available in electronic format?) I already have that Loomis book Figure drawing for all it worth, but it focuses on the overall shape of the body and not on the body parts. So I could really use some recommendations.

    your digital pieces have got a lot of potential!!! i've been trying to learn how to paint digitally for the past few months and its not easy. if you keep at this pace you'll improve greatly. ...and was that the LAUGHING MAN i saw in one of your sketches? A Ghost in the Shell fan!

    Novbert, thank you so much! Interesting thoughts about the pencil renderings, I agree, I have to do more work in that direction. And thanks, a good artist is exactly what I want to become
    The most awesome anatomy book I know is The Human Figure by John H. Vanderpoel. Bammes' stuff is also extremely good, but very, umm, technical, not related to drawing... ah, I'll write you a PM

    eskanto, thanks! Haha fuck yeah Ghost in the Shell = WIN!!

    Here's some sketches done mostly in the bus. Didn't get around to do much, exams are coming up next week :-/

    Awesome quick studies there!

    I adore those non-reffed faces, particularly the profile of the man on the right.... lovely. Excellent use of cross-hatching.

    Great pencil and pen sketches - especially the train sketches. Great to see all the studies and poses as well - they're gonna pay big dividends. Keep up the good work

    LEvans, thank you! naomiful is a big inspiration, her hatching is so beautiful... *drools*

    Puck, thanks, I will!



    Holy shit, exams are coming up. Been doing a lot of math today, didn't have much time to draw, but here are some sketches done at University, the girl is from head, the rest partly from life, partly from imagination:
    Attachment 291776
    And some half-assed Vanderpoel studies. My lines suck. Are there any specific exercises to improve that, or does it just come with practice?
