    Aaah i fail! Didn't do anything yesterday, although the title says updated daily. Just worked on that WIP.

    Zeitwolf, iceman478, thank you


    So today nothing digital, just some hand studies after Bammes and then a whole bunch of drapery studies from life. On the last two pages I used some document liner which has an awesome feel to it, I'll use that thing more often.

    Carbono, thank you!

    Here's stuff. First are some characters, then some arms. Those ugly faces are from life, drawn on the bus. Can't draw a straight line with our bumpy roads.
    The girl with the torch is the current status of a WIP of mine... don't know how to push it further, and think i lost interest. Any kind of critique would be appreciated.
    Those poses are 30 seconds and they suck :-/

    Hey algenpfleger,

    Thanks for coming by my sb. I think you got alot of great things happening here. Really good studies and those arm studies are great also. Hmm...I need to do some of those.

    About the wip your working, it looks pretty good so far. You got a great sense of color and nice strokes. I think it just needs little tiny touches to finish it up really. You could possibly add sparks to the torch to give it a slight effect. I dunno...I can't really critique it too much. The legs could use alittle more smoothing. If you want to get heavy critiques you might want to put it in the critique forum.

    In anycase I'll be keeping a lookout. Great work!

    Your dedication is great. You will make lots of progress. Drawing so much can almost be work, but it pays off.

    I only have one critique, which may be the fault of the scanner: some of your pencil work seems to need good healthy black. In some places, you employ your darks very well, but in others your renders are slightly weakened due to the lack of a nice dark. Maybe try to think particularly hard about darks in a few drawings. If you like the result, keep it up. If not, don't.

    If the lack of darks is due to the scanner, feel free to ignore.

    Alpenpfleger??? Netter Username...

    Well, first of all, you are on the right track! Study anatomy is essential if you wanna improve in figurative drawing and painting.
    It is also great that you do imaginary stuff here and there, in your stage i would recommend to work with reference, especially with paintings, colored stuff.
    The thing is that you just have to know how to create realistic skin, distance,
    textures, color relation etc. In between imaginary stuff should be done to use your knowledge from reference stuff and other studies (anatomy) and see what you really learned from them.

    So keep it up!

    Sedig: Thanks, i hope so And you're right about the darks, saw this stuff on another monitor today and it kinda looked... wierd. I think I just got to calibrate mine so i can adjust the scans properly.

    Farin: Thanks dude! I'm from Chemnitz, Saxony. In the deep east...

    Xaya: Almost It's al<G>enpfleger, with g Thanks for the advice, I'll use more reference!

    Here's what i did today... anatomy, sketches on the bus and some poses.

    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.

    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:

    And some half-assed Vanderpoel studies. My lines suck. Are there any specific exercises to improve that, or does it just come with practice?
