    Figure drawing, Potraits and sometimes other stuff...

    Hi everybody!
    This is my second attempt on a sketchbook. My first attempt is some years ago and I thought it would be better to open a new sketchbook than to recover my old one
    A few sentences to myself: I am 20 years old, live in germany and I am planing to study art. I hope I can begin this year... ok I think enough words now for the images...
    I added some selfpotraits because I think it might be good for you to have an idea of who I am. I also added some work I have done into my sketchbook and my latest life figure drawings.
    I hope you enjoy, C&C are always welcome
    P.S. Sorry for the huge download at the beginning

    I really like the colors in that first self portrait. It's kind of like being lit from the inside with a candle.. very cool.

    Welcome to the sketchbooks man. Really nice studies and portraits, great variety. As amaranthe said, the lighting on the first self portrait is awesome!

    Keep it up!

    Thanks everybody !

    JRStagg: I'll try to get the shoulders better, lately I concentrated more on the feet and hands

    Amaranthe: I think that was the actual idea ... some light inside my head so I can always find my way back home by lightning everything around myself

    Carbono: I will really try to keep it up .. that's a goal


    I have added my work from yesterday and today. I used some of my life drawings for some watercolor expirements ... I am planing to do some more of them because at the moment I really like it - I had to take fotos of them sorry for the quality
    I also worked on my sketchbook yesterday and I added a little photo of it. This was planned to be a guy with a hat holding two big brushes ... I don't know if anyone can see it At leat I added the sketches for the pose of this guy

    Here is an update,
    first two pieces are scanned sketchbookpages.
    The next two are some more watercolor figures I did after my figure drawings. Then there are three selfpotraits. I used the silhouettes of three of my old selfpotraits as basic and played a little bit with abstract forms ... just playing around a little bit. I will develop this a little more because now I know what I made wrong
    After this there are following my latest figure drawings. I am trying to learn a new way how I can hold my pencil ... so the only piece where it worked right is the last.
    C&C are welcome

    Hi everyone,
    here is an update of my latest pieces. First some sketchbookpages, next my first attempts on character thumbnails ... at least my latest figure life drawings. At our last session our model did not come so the artists posed for 10minutes.
    I hope you like it!

    Hey Thom, nice life studies. I feeling you are more comfortable when you have a model to draw as your imaginary stuff seems elongated sometimes? keep up the good work man and keep an eye on them there proportions... ;-)

    RandAlThor: Thanks, yes it really seems like it is easier for me to work with a model I am working to get my imaginational drawings better and to get the propotions right

    Here is my newest stuff,
    first some more thumbnail character sketches... then some other scribbles... and some gesture drawings I did with references. At least my newest live figure drawings from yesterday (the male model).

    C&C very welcome, enjoy!
    Thomas
