    Guess whos back...

    Back again. Phoenicorns back tell a friend.
    Ok enough quoting slim shady. Well I am back from the brink of death (damn you man flu) So I know have the energy to post some work up on this site again.
    on a personal note I can't believe how much work I had to catch up on at college. I mean seriously nobody told me the uni application was due in the Friday (yesterday). Managed to get it all sorted out though.

    Well that is enough moaning. Figured I'd start off this new post with anatomy studies. Yep it's an old CA favorite Andrew Loomis
    *personal note* when did the image upload thing change. Hope I got everything correct

    Practice drawing shapes. On some drawing of yours; hands , torso or some other body parts don't have appropriate shape. Maybe you should first work with pen and charcoal on practicing basic shape (as many said) , try to realisticly copy what you see, take your time don't hurry, point is to sharpen you r eye so you can very identically transfer what you see to paper. That's all i have to say, sorry my english.

    PS
    Oh ,and one more thing ...just keep drawing and drawing.....

    I second that, keep doing the anatomy studies and practice basic shape. Look for big forms and take your time.

    Good luck and Merry Christmas

    first of the new year

    My first picture of 2009. I Saw this advert in one of my mags and drew in that style (Kindo' vector stuff) the second pic was me adding shading to it to see what it would look like. The writing on the sides are personal notes.

    Hey, nice work in here. Keep up the studies and keep mixing it up with the fun imaginative stuff. Also, I would maybe try to do a few experiments and while drawing something new, start it out with some basic shapes (circles or whatever) to really feel out the form that is making up what you're drawing, and see if that makes them seem a little less flat.
    Keep it up!

    Hey. Nice SB.

    I really suggest you do more Anatomy studies, with basic forms and structure. Use loomis. They are really going to help add more realism in your figures.

    Keep drawing

    Have you read Drawing on the Right side of the Brain. I think it would help you at this stage quite a bit.

    Who exactly is this minjit you ask?

    I think you should probably start doing gestures from real life, posemaniacs or watever is a little bit of a nice way to get warmed up before doing some real drawing but it is by no means a good way to understand anatomy or the human form. Alot of your work is reading as a little flat. I think thats because you might be working under the assumtion that shading can give an object thickness. This is incorrect.
    Allthough it can help, rendering an object in greyscale is meant to be the equivelent of polishing said object (when speaking strictly in formal terms) I have seen oilpainters map thier perspective ten feet in either direction off of a painting. (putting red string on tacks) to make sure thier base drawing was solid before putting down even a stroke of paint.

    On a seperate note entirely, generally speaking, I find that a place like this would probably be almost counter productive during the early stages of drawing. You are going to get a million opinions from a million directions, to try and take all of this advice at once has to be brainsplitting? So in spite of the fact that I feel the need to dispense advice, let me say: do what feels right. I see so many people let themselves start using other people as a crutch in thier work. I am an animation student, and I watch a good seven (really talented) students try too hard to please professors and fellow students. These people, people who have legitimate potential are not failing because of a lack of advice, but of an abundence. Allowing your identity, your needs and your enthusiasm to be hijacked by more experienced artists is almost always a bad idea, because at the end of the day man, its just you.

    You are the only one who matters when you are producing work, if it doesn't make you smile, whats the point.

    while we are on the subject of taking advice: don't draw from photos if you can help it, its generally frowned upon. When you are trapped in a room with a wacom tablet, drawing the ruins of mohenjo daro or some shit then fine. But you are doing pencil drawings, why aren't you drawing from life or from your head?

    Coffee break alice is awesome.

    You're really coming along! I especially like the last two pieces. Very cool.

    One thing I noticed is that you do the same thing that I do when shading. You contrast the light and darks a lot so it sometimes gives your faces and muscles a more "metallic" texture rather than a skin texture (unless that's what you're shooting for). What I'm doing to work on that is to just outline where the shadows are, and only fill those. Perhaps doing that would help you too-- that way also, it's easier to fill out the form without only relying on shading alone.

    one thing ive noticed in your works is that you dont clearly define a light source.
    shading and highlighting everything isn't good, try to do studies of basic shapes, look where the light and shadow are on the form.
