    dude, you're doing pretty awesome for your age. I wish I could draw like that when I was 15. Your crazy half woman half creature things are creeping me out! Great work!

    HOLY MOLY!!! there is some serious potential in here!! how old did you say you are?

    the last ones really kick some ass, and your lines went from shy and cautious to selfconfident more lose ones! great improvement!! I like the way you deform your characters, makes them pretty interesting, try to keep studying "normal" anatomy though, cos you first have to know the rules before breaking them

    your fruits are great too, and yeah colorpicking is kinda cheating, but hey EVERYONE started like this!!! so nevermind, its totally normal!

    last advice for your pencilrendering... try to make some hatching practices. I 'm a huge fan of hatching and say that if its done right it can look better than the 'smudgy' way...

    bye

    a la bapsi, big thanks. Because of my bad english I'm not sure what where u asking, you mean who teach's me anatomy? Well I started from Riven Phoenix videos on youtube, that changed my drawing a lot and now I bought a HUMAN ANATOMY FOR ARTISTS book by Andras Szunyoghy and Dr. Gyorgy Feher and thats it.

    greenbears, thank you. I'm a bit stand out guy so some kinda a bit scary or ugly style growing it self in me, I like when people see me drawing creatures or something like that and say ''oh man thats disgusting''.

    lilou, well my birhtday was at july, so I'm 16 now and I hate it... Thank you very much. Im studying a bit of arms and legs anatomy right now, ill try to study some more. Thanks for advices, I'm not sure what is that hatching thing, but ill check that out after posting this.

    Some random figures and arm muscle studies.I feel like I need to start studying hands and feets cuz I never took it seriously and now its bad for my figures.

    Hey Pijus, you're making steady progress here, I'm liking the anatomy studies, don't burn yourselt out on them though, for every study, do something from imagination, it doesn't have to be something that takes 5 hours to sketch and render, just a doodle will help loosen things up.

    I hope you're wrong about our SSG. D:

    Tigermilk: super thanks, oh those refs from an very old Lithuanian photography books.

    lilou: thank you. Hands looks odd becouse I have not studyed it seriously, but I'm working out with it in traditional media so I'll not upload those studies. I use HUMAN ANATOMY FOR ARTISTS book by Andras Szunyoghy and Dr. Gyorgy Feher (http://www.amazon.com/Human-Anatomy-.../dp/3829005733).

    Smoke: thank you, I'll try to take your advice, thanks for it. I hope so too.

    Today I tryed to draw a mirror, but some fool apeared in it, so I had to draw him too.
    Well looks nothing like me, I dont know if I should upload this, but whatever... it will be here for you to measure the progress if I upload more selfportraits in the future.

    get your sketchpad, go outside, draw the people from real life, thats the most rewarding and useful experience. anatomybooks are great of course, but theres nothing like real life, man. i see some 5 stars comin within the next years!! and besides thx for commenting my sb (aka txfcmsb).

    greetzes

    Caffeine_stream: Thank you mate, yeah Im stuck on shading, but I'm trying to slowly slowly work with that.

    Kfeeras: Thanks for advice, it really pushed me. I actualy hate drawing from life in public, sometimes I use to do that traveling by bus or train, but I hate when people starting to stare at me and its geting worse when they realize that I'm drawing them. But I need to use to that right? I wait for school year to begin, itll be much more publicity for me, sitting in the classroom/school/art school, drawing friends, you know... Thanks again.

    Heres still life painting I done tonight, orange and a grapefruit.

    Hehe yeh drawing gestures in life is amazing practice but it can be unnerving when people realize you are drawing them or when they try and see your sketches. Its great when its a good sketch, not so good when its a doodle!

    I started studying hands a bit. Here it goes. I know I should draw more of them from life, thats a bit hard to do that digitaly so most of these from a head. Ill make some traditionaly on a paper from life, but itll be not uploaded.

    Funny...I just uploaded some of my hand studies to my own Sketchbook!

    I really like your style Pijus. Some of your character concepts are just so outlandish, yet well balanced. Keep up those anatomy studies and you'll be a master in no time.

    Artists have such a magnificent gift...breathing life into something with just simple lines.

    oh darn. That is what I call the difference between hardwork and talent! Please do not pursue a career in the arts! You must give me a chance!

    but srsly, your studies are going to set your skill, and It seems you already know that. You are on the right track! Great work!

    EBrown: Yes, I checked that out, you already know that. Thank you, I hope I'll be...

    Slothman86: hehe, in which category im in? I hope in both. I think theres a space for both of us in art, dont worry. Thanks alot man!

    Ok, I'm geting my "studio" seting up, so I can paint more often now.
    Heres anather still life painting sketch of fruits, I'm planing to do that every night and I hope this becomes a project.
    I know I picked the colors wrong, but when I scaned it, it looks even worse. I think I need a photo camera.

    Feel free to give advices and critics about this.

    hey man was gonna post this before but i forgot!!!
    the still life's are going good. maybe try and add a few more colours, just remember you are painting the way light acts on the object, not the object itself, so altho the apple may be green or the orange maybe....orange there will prob be other colors in there due to the light such as yellow, red, orange and all the colors of the rainbow!

    You have proven in this thread that you will do the work. So, take the compliment either which way. This is my outlook...

    talent- natural ability
    skill- ability through hard work
    hard work- process that usually results in a refined product and in which one can obtain ability (also known as practice), can also be recognized from the product of itself being in that the product is precise to a fine degree(really confusing where's my oxford...)

    So, when someone looks at your art and says, "You have talent/skills," you can say "Yep, I do *pause* BUT this is my hard work!"

    Girls like guys with skills!

    Tonights still life. I added more colors to this, but it doesnt feel that much actualy. Pear and two different kind apples, background left the same as the previous painting.

    The cats have a real nice flow.
    How can you be good if you're never bad?

    The backgrounds count! Good perspective.

    I think a round brush with a lower opacity might work out better than the square brush. Are you using photoshop or something else?

    Have you seen our SSG around? Are they sleeping?

    The Whistler: Thanks a lot.
    res01ve: Good, thanks man. I'll try some roundish brush's next time, thanks for suggestion. I'm using corel painter essentials 3 which was included in my wacom box, I dont have any other program I could use legaly. :/ About our SSG, well I only see you, Smoke and Mitze; about others, I dont know maybe theyre very busy.

    School recess ended, so I'll not draw and upload so often than I did before.
    Yesterday's painting with acrylics. I think I did better job with edges, but worse with everything else, maybe it took to long and I been too tired to fix it. And I need to change the background next time...
