kidult, thanks, and yeah, that's what i'm hoping
Gundersen, thanks man! and yeah, we'll see each other in class!
alvukovic, thank you
UnSharpened, thanks dude. i'm flattered you even mention bumskee. i love his stuff so much. the poses are from posemaniacs.com, ill send you a pm in case you dont read this post
atlantik, thanks mate!
so today, i had to study for my exams. next one is on tuesday and things are getting kinda stressful. after that however, ill have all time in the world.
but i still did a digi doodle in between boolean algebra and all those nasty things... tried a new, more "traditional" approach to skintones here, more blocking and less blending, instead developing a richer color scheme... i think it came out rather nice. without ref, as always. Attachment 305413
Good sketches , and studies , but i think you should try to draw from real life a little bit , to get and idea of the natural human body , because in a study from a book, is how the artist saw the model , you need to draw what your eyes see.
omfg the hands o__O!!
great work, I'm impressed by how much time you actually spend on improving your drawing skills °_°;
I mean- I knew you'd spend a lot of time for that. But so much drawings, so many different poses and stuff ... wow o_o"
keep going <3~

atlantik, thanks mate!
flamable, thank you, and yeah, unfortunately you are right. i've been looking for a life drawing class around here ever since i started this thread, without success so far :-/ but ill do self portraits and studies from life, i think that will help as well.
mellowpurple, thanks my dear ha. you see. i just cant upload all this shit on animexx ;D
didnt do anything yesterday, because of exams. didnt do much today either, because of more exams. but here's a sketchbook page i did on the bus... haha, my pencils suck. Attachment 307001
and i didnt make it into form's environmenting class. damn it, i should have worked harder. that kinda pulled me down, and i was all emo, for at least two minutes. after that, i started doodling, without any specific purpose... here's what i had after 3 and a half hours.

im liking the digi sketches, good job! Also well done on keeping up with all those figure studies, inspiring stuff lol. And i also wish to learn how to draw hands, bit of a weakness of mine, might start when i get home =P
Hey, Gosh you're learning fast, and working hard, it really pays of.... ( I'm thinking where does this guy going to end?)
You're digital sketches are improving allot! You inspire me to work harder myself, "thanks :p"
I may work hard but you sir, are CRAZY. Keep up all the stuff but don't think you can escape ref just yet - it's time to build up the chiaroscuro and start giving your figures real contrast! You're still leaps and bounds ahead of me....
Tuff update man - loving these pics! The saturated colours are soo nice! Can see how the hands studies paid off. Skin tones on the 2nd ones face is good too.
Some anatomical offness on the ladies but seems U where more into the faces? Or is that just me....
Anyways keep it up!
i really like the fact that your doing hard work on the color AND anatomy part, very admirable!
your faces look good, its just funny that they are pretty similar (your girlfriend?) and that their lips are always VERY red.
Hey, thanks for dropping by my book. Really like the paintings, they are coming along nicely. Keep studying and working hard. On your 30 second sketches, make sure to draw the feet. Foot placement is extremely important in gestures. Keep it up!
