    Hello! Long time no seen. Well, there has been lot going around. After fighting with schizophreni for two years I'm finally back. In autumn I'm going to study mathematics! But all this time I have a little dream in my heart, in future to go art school that is in Estonia(where I live) and there you can study ANIMATION!! I hope I will learn to organize my time, so I will have time to concentrate on art.

    Yesterday I did a few sketches. In my mind I am animating and drawing.... but it's hard to get it on paper.. Well we will see..

    So I lurked around this forum a little bit and got some ideas. Here they are. My only problem is that I have no program for animations so all you get is a theory of an animation ... If you have any advise I'd be more than happy to hear you out.

    Thanks for the crits! I like your Bridgman copies. I need to get the pdfs of his book(s).

    It's been a long time since I've frequented this site, but I seem to remember the aspiring animators doing lots of animal gestures. Is there a zoo or maybe farm near you? Check it out!

    Regarding the flowers, they are 3D objects just like a ball or an egg. There is a paintover thread I found recently that has a short tutorial about how light interacts with 3D objects. Maybe look around for it! I would be surprised if the same lesson wasn't also in one of Bridgman's books!

    Good luck and keep drawing!

    My first two pictures in 2014. Let's hope these won't be last. For the girl I used a base. And drawing paws is difficult. Hoping to color these soon. Name:  hundidsketch.jpg

    It’s been a long time, I can see that you like to disappear from time to time, then
    you reappear with full force, much more stronger than before, which is good of
    course. Since you were gone, many things changed and the bathroom floor got a
    bit wet and slippery, but nothing that we should worry about. Sorry to hear that you
    have been struggling with mental disorders, I hope that you are feeling better lately,
    if there is anything that I can do to help, please note me. I am happy that you are
    back and that you are more motivated than ever, I just wish you to keep on going
    this way, keep up the good spirit, the positive thinking and good things will
    surely happen to you and to your environment.

    That’s a good first step to block in shapes, now you should decide where does
    your light source is coming from, and according to that you should put
    the highlights and shades on these animals. Also look up for some fur
    materials and try to imitate it, try to do some fur studies.

    LtPlissken thank you for the tips... I'll do that

    So I came to this idea to draw my wolves as fire and ice elements. Did some practise. But since I was away three days from campus and my tablet I decided to do free lineart commissions for people. Did 7sketches of their characters plus one lineart is done plus I have more than 12artists on my list. (poses are referenced)

    I discovered some of my old drawings... thought it would be fun to add some(the girl with green eyes).

    I must say... school is taking much time from me... so I have only little for art :/Name:  flamesstudy.jpg

    very bad advice->

    forget the studies, all you have to do is avoid the last way you were drawing and its always better, then you dont have to work off any reference till you die.

    digydan1 I'm no good at drawing and on concentrating references I feel like I am learning something and become better but if I just do figure studies then I feel like it doesn't help me at all.. And I must say I enjoy that working off..

    The last one looks colorful and magical, but still the flatness is there, no sharp
    or soft edges, and what about the light source? Also you should think
    about shapes, each and every individual part of these beasts, shade
    and highlight them according to the light source. I would suggest
    doing simpler subjects in greyscale. Sometimes you have to go back
    so you could improve. Two steps forward, one step back.
