    Smucker: thanks man your doing great yourself!
    jedin: thanks man and i will
    kidult: cheers man!
    Why have i not been updating daily this past months?:
    My dad has been hurt
    And the past couple of days i've been at the hospital with my little 5 yo bro whos had surgery but is fine now.
    These reasons have
    a. Been holding me back from progressing alot because i have to spend alot of my time on them
    b. Effected me and my art greatly, so much stress going on i feel like quitting daily, and no looking at people who work hard just doesn't cut it for me i jsut feel like god i can never do as much as them or i'll never be as good as this.
    But what ever, it's all gotta stop if i dont start working hard am wasting my time.
    Starting tommorow on I will update daily no matter whats happining i will update daily. Second thing is that am going to update with atleast 5 pictures a day. So thats at the least 5 quality art works and we'll see where i can go from there. If i dont update on the day then i'll update on the next morning etc etc.
    I got a mechanical pencil :0 lol and a new sketchbook well actully 2
    Heres my list of things to really practise
    Things to practise: Line, Anatomy: Hands, Torsos, Feet, Faces, Rendering, Form, Digital Painting, Gesture, Design
    Things to do for fun: Ocs, black and whites in ps, Thumbnails And character designs

    Now crits the hell out of me and all advice is welcome.
    Just took a little bit of a break from anatomy to try different things with a marker and a pen.
    Sorry that its mostly thumbs for today their just great fun and helped me get my motivation back
    Now crits the hell out of me and all advice is welcome.
    First off Enviro thumb studies, yep enviros from ref from photos from artist, except for the 2nd on on the right hand side are from my mind:

    Attachment 440226
    And then some feet and some transport or vehicles i love these all you need to do is just put down some simple shapes and forms and then walla build something:

    Attachment 440231
    Attachment 440233
    And in my new sketchbook ! a daily character and a character sketch:

    Wow we did the same thing.I also sketched some quick enviroments when i was travelling these days.I think its very helpfull.
    I like the thumbnails you made, and as you progress you will make more and easier.
    About the characters i think that they miss interest.Maybe its because they are closed forms(so try to make them open in space, i mean try another stance that implies more depth)Basically i think a good training will be to continue working on the same character until a good product.For example take the first character you did and keep making him in other stances and with everytime correcting possible anatomy or other mistakes.(A little by little this details will make it professional)
    Try to make those things and pass them to critique center.Follow the critiques that they will tell you and then show us the progress of the same character.

    Keep up your good work

    These thumbnails are great. Try to simplify values when doing these. For example just white, gray and black. You'll learn to communicate coplicated scene with simple shapes. I already see that in some thumbnails and that's good.
    I also like the last character sketch. It has much better pose and proportions than previous. You could use more overlapping lines in different places to create depth.

    Keep it up!

    You are progressing and i can see it. I will tell you a tip i heard from Bobby Chiu, he sayd that in the begining the most important thing to do is lines, shape,volume. No shadows,coloring and stuff.

    Well but i dont realy know , probably you should do some other stuff too.

    And keep it up

    Sorry to hear your having problems at home. ohomoho is right about that. But it's also good to explore before you go head first into your studies. And listen to some Bobby Chiu podcasts, if they don't inspire you, it's hard to say what will. I mean, after listening to one of first podcasts about a week ago, I started the new sketchbook, and I've been studying my ass off so I can improve. The thumbnails are sweet by the way. I need to post the ones I've done. Forgot to subscribe to your thread since I got back to CA. I'll do that now. Hehe, cheers.

    Definite improvment going on lately. torsos are looking nicer and nicer. Keep doin what your doin!
    *edit* I just read about your home problems, I'm sorry to hear about that, I know how hard times and stress really kill motivation and inspiration. In fact I am going through that low right now myself, but it seems like no matter what, somthing always kicks me up out of it, if only for a little while. I can see you have great desire to improve, but as some one told me long ago in my sb, it looks like your trying to tackle too many things at once. I was doing the same, and its really hard for your brain to jump around from subject to subject like that without instruction. Honestly, I would work on line, getting them solid, and confident. buy the cheapest bound paper you can and draw long solid lines of stuff you see around. Do them slow, try to capture the main shape of the object before going to details. Dont lift your pencil. Dont worry about how it looks, thats not the point. After you feel like that is helping, try doing them fast. It can be a nice daily excersize before you do somthing that you want to look nice. But for now, if you are having family problems, dont worry about getting awesome. Art should relieve you of stress, not add to it. All in all I hope every thing gets better and your able to focus without guilt or distraction. I'll see you around.

    Sorry to hear about your situation being like that That nude drawing thing too. But don't let that get you down! Go into the city, Buy a stack of typing paper (it's like 4 bucks for 500 sheets of A4, at least here where I live) and then draw lots and lots of straight lines, circles, and blind contours. Punch that line quality up to a level you wouldn't dream of. Do the same with rendering of cubes, understanding of form, structure, planes, muscles, everything. make sure you're prepared for the day when you can tackle nudes. Don't let the time go to waste by feeling down
