    Beautiful studies. All those models faces are great - you captured the face perfectly with very few lines.

    Hey Algenpfleger. I know you take critique seriously and learn from it so I hope I'm not totally talking rubbish here.
    I've been needing to write you about this for a few days after looking at your anatomy figure drawings. I think I know what can help you with your problems with the anatomy and foreshortening. I think you might need some more work understanding the form. That's why you have problems with fore shortening and anatomy. To be able to render the volume correctly it needs great understanding of the form and perspective as well. The foundations that you build upon will have big effect how far you can take your art and the foundational skills will help you over come illusional problems later on your career. I would highly suggest that you'd tackle upon perspective and get a good grasp on that. Needless to say that perspective is needed everywhere and you can't do without it. Check out draw123.com Perspective DVD series and get Joseph D'amelio's perspective handbook to go with the DVD lessons. Those will put you on a solid perspective understanding. Also I'd suggest doing some sculpting. That will greatly help you improve understanding the form and you can combine it with learning anatomy. Check out www.freedom-of-teach.com products.

    Also a good exercise to learn to render the form is to put a "wireframe" on the drawing.

    Hope this can help you on your way to stardom. All the best!

    Holy, I just joined at midnight last night and got a few pointers before uploading my sketchbook with a few little pics I've done in the last month... But your dedication? I'm only awed. I have no idea how I'd fit the amount of drawing you do in one day into one of my WEEKS!

    Keep up that good work man, you are a true inspiration to a n00b like me. I've got to get one of those drawing pads for my computer...

    Hannes, dear, been a while since I stopped by! Still mass-producing masterpieces and studies I see

    I love your latest SPs, how you've been playing with different styles and perspectives, pretty awesome stuff! Also, you're doing more pencil portraits, it's clear that your pencils are sharpening up! ('scuse the pun :'D) You're now nailing your own likeness with every piece, so definite improvement there, as you struggled somewhat with that initially. Your hard work really pays off! Man, when you get all famous and have time to make fancy commissions, I'm so gonna let you paint my portrait. Pretty please?

    Looking at your SB always makes me want to draw, thanks so much for the inspiration. Unfortunately I'm sicker than a...uh, very sick person right now, so I don't have the energy to draw. Laying in bed and browsing CA is pretty much the only thing I'm capable of now! But I'm gonna save that inspiration boost for later when I'm all good. Take care, buddy

    Farsh, thanks a lot man! Dead rats? o_O Like... dead... rats? Seriously, that's fucked up

    Faust, hahaha xD

    flamable, thanks a ton! Color's right here

    zulu, tyvm!

    Noe, wow, thanks a lot! Errm yeah... do I talk myself down? D: It's just what I think about my stuff... okay, I should just shut up. Umm the arm references come from Birdgman and Hogarth aaaaaaaaaand from life. Easy to tell which is which haha And yes I've been planning to work big, but I didn't... do it yet... ._.

    miguelslo, thank you!

    Chris Noeth, thank you Sir!

    agelaos! Wow thanks for the awesome critique and advice and everything. Yeah, you're completely right. Hmmmmm motion studies, I should be able to find some of those on the net, that ounds awesome! Thanks!

    mentler! Thank you

    Shalite, whoooooooo thanks \°O°/

    Aurélie, darling, thank you, I'll try!

    Dile, that's right!

    Seyreene, more profiles, hmmmmm you're right! Danke

    Maestro Andres, thanks a ton, haha, no, MindaCandyMan's and bumskee's books should be part of everyone's breakfast!

    Asatira, tyvm

    Daniol, thanks dude! Yeah, I've been struggling with the eye distance ever since I... started drawing... heh.... I'll get it right eventually

    lilnebo, yay thanks! Wow you need to install Adblock Plus o_o Thanks for the screencap!

    Lew, hey thanks!

    Weakest, well the reason I started with digital stuff instead of just learning to draw first was just that I'm a retard :X Digital stuff just seemed so much "cooler" than anatomy and everything. Haha, I still pay the price for that mistake... wrote you a PM!

    EtherRain, thanks buddy!

    Rockhart well I'm not the one who writes all those posts ;p Thank you

    jenaea, woot! Ty!

    Fishspawn, I know There's just no figure drawing class here Only internet with lots of nekkid peeps. Maybe I should study them more.

    Faust, I knoooooooooow. Ah guess why I want to go to artschool :-/ Here where I live, there's not even a coffeeshop where you could sit down to draw.

    Soja, yes I do! Bastard! Haha, there you have it. Thanks a bunch man, and yes I'd love to meet some people in RL sometime, maybe at the next sketchmeet or something like that?

    Galaxis, thank you!

    Chate Noire, thankies!

    Yuza, dude, honestly - how is a DVD going to help me with the fact that I have trouble drawing a cube in perspective or constructing a torso? I need to have that stuff in my brain, not on my harddrive. Skill comes through practice, not through watching other people do it. You're basically right, yes I suck at volume and structure and form, but I'll get that right with practice. Thanks a lot though, I know you mean it in a good way Try not to get ripped off with "Ten-easy-steps"-products too often.

    yongs, thank you! Ummm... is that IFX feature so special? I mean, I'm not even in the magazine, just on the homepage.... You can congratulate Poshspice for being the cover!

    obsidiousrise, thanks a ton mate

    Walid, cheers!

    Asa! Heartie! Oh, so sorry to hear you're sick Hope you get well soon! Thanks for the nice words, and the pun was awesome xD And yes I'd love to do that haha, provided I can make paintings look like they're supposed to look by that time

    Slechtvalk, yay thanks!




    So.... (The lovely Chlochette colored this one, check out her wonderful book!)

    I wanted to take a few days off because I felt like my head was exploding... so I practiced guitar and played around with some audio software... but in the end I ended up painting as usual... and did something that kinda describes that I've been having about life lately... everything's just rushing by and I lost grip of reality a bit... no refs on this one, ten hours maybe...

    Algen. Sorry about that maybe my response didn't convey the message as I wanted.
    I offered the dvd and book because I figured they'd help you getting a good grasp on perspective. Obviously you need to practice and not just watch the dvd's and read the books to understand perspective... needles to say.

    You can learn volume and form by observing the nature and this way teach your brain to see when something is or isn't right when you draw it on the paper. Knowing the "tools of perspective" will help you solve problems when your brain isn't skilled enough yet to figure out some illustration problem and can show you the way to the desired result. And you can always check back on it to make sure it's right if you know the perspective rules and how to use them. Once you master perspective then you don't need the perspective guidelines and "rules" anymore because your brain knows what looks right and what wrong.

    I think to become a good illustrator you must know all the fundamentals of drawing because then there is no limits to advancing your skills.

    I only meant to help.

    Great studies and love the angle on the color digi painting.

    Pyramid head is awesome. The rest of the stuff is pretty okay, I guess.

    No, really, awesome SB as always.

    I just realized that was increadibly shallow and boring, so I will go again. Blabedi bla, all the stuff I just said and NOW.

    The finished piece is absolutely gorgeous, the colours are working nicely, though the arms seem a little displaced. The forshortening of the arm in the back is a little extreme, and so the one in the front is a little to little.

    I like the whole mood of it, the ooze comming from the nose is just what is needed to break it of from a cliche and still keep it light and fresh. The only thing that kills the immersion for me is that the body is a little to large for the head, but dun fret about it, I am nitpicking.

    The studies are good, but you need to study the effect that gravity has on different parts of the, for example the breasts. THis might be easier if you made your modells a little more mature, take RoboGabo's studies as an example. They are just fantastic. Now I am not saying that yours are bad, but you seem to prefer that critique is real critique and not just flattering nonsense in disguise.

    The movementstudies are also good, so keep having at them, I find it very inspiring to look at them, and I will do some of my own I think, I do far to little, as I usually only take the time to do some thirty second crap cakes from Posemaniacs from time to time.

    As for the faces, you have moved strides from my last visit. I love the fact that they are no longer so generic, but emplore you to stop drawing Wes' eyes, not that it is a bad thing, but it becomes a little transparent. Studying other artists can be a double edged sword, but again, take my critique with a pinch of salt.

    One more thing I wanted to say, but I won't spam down your SB with it, si I will send you a PM instead.

    All the love

    Nice to visit your cave, as usual. Congratulations for the illustration of the resting-bleeding guy(or girl)
    I couldnt help but read about your comments between Juza and you, and I must say you are wrong. Watching others people how to's will help you always. Watching ten-step-to perfections will make discover things always. And save a lot of time many times too. Now....I think, anybody with real and serious talent and working discipline here, knows that 90% of the hard work is by practice.
    As Greeks used to say....the virtue is in the balance.....
