Thank you, Black Spot! I hope I'll develop as well!
Slept most of the day... was new years last night, after all. >>
Did a little, at least.

I drew some cubes today. And I thought it was fun.
Isn't there some kind of law against that?

Tried to draw my girlfriend today. Didn't work out too well. >>
The first one I smudged too much, so I thought I'd try to use crosshatching instead... worked out worse. Then from a new angle. Still looks like douche.
Will try again tomorrow!
I also did some perspective-practice, but I managed to put away the papers somewhere hidden for mere human eyes...
Guh. I'm too embarrased to ask family members to model for me... any suggestions to how I can ask in a way that doesn't make them expect it to be Raphael?

I've been suffering with homework all day, trying to get some perspective right... IT JUST WOULDN'T WORK! I can't draw it at all! I need to draw some ideas for recreating an outdoor area. I'm really no good at perpective. I need to practice, but... I DON'T HAVE TIME. Stupid assignment coming before I'm prepared for it. XD
Only managed to fool around with pastels a little. Rest of the time was spent trying to draw the goddamned house with the goddamned fountain-wall and the goddamned surroundings.
The artwork is around 43.5 cm x 34 cm. Kinda big, in other words. >XD

MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR
Actually, just showing up two portraits started in PS.
THAT I NEVER WILL FINISH. I will start over and try to make something looking less like poop.
- That hard brushes shall be used and not soft ones.
- Working on white backgrounds causes your eyes to bleed.
- I'm sure my art will look good in the future with our friends Patience and Practice, and I will need a lot of their company.
- That I must obtain Corel Painter someday because I love it and it doesn't hate my face like Photoshop does. *poor excuse for sucking*
- And that the chances for me getting into any kind of university is absurd.

Well.... drew some people from 'Atlas of Anatomy', drew my hand, drew my brother Eric. I really need to practice drawing people from life.
On the other hand (harrharr, pun), the hand study did ok! Still looks like a moogle on drugs, but it's better than usual! I hope it's improvement and not dumb luck.

Nice sketchbook, and keep up the good work because the progress really does show. Really looks like your line quality is improving, and it's great that you're so willing to really focus on fundamentals like color mixing and perspective studies. ^_^
Quick tip for scanning thin paper that has stuff on the back...putting a piece of black paper behind the page helps prevent the reverse from showing through.
Thanks for visiting my SB, and keep posting your progress!

Aphotic Phoenix - Thank you a LOT! I don't think I've progressed much at all, but hearing you say that makes me so goddamned motivated! Thanks a lot, and you better keep up the work as well!
Did some drawing today as well... what else is new? Oh, and a horribletastic pastel tryout. I learned that my paper was too dark for the pastels I had. And also that I have terrible sense of colour. Need more practice...

Keep it up!
Your human figures are starting to become more realistic. Keep up the good work
Bullets, my only weakness.

Ugh. This was just not a good day. *rubs temple* I'll try to make up for it tomorrow.

when you are shading shit in, make the lines go in the direction of the form. it will give things more volume, look more solid. by direction of the form i mean don't shade straight lines on a round object. make the lines curve around the shape. like spiderman. he looks 3d even with no shading.
good hands, there's always one around to draw.
and your bottom right sketch on december 28 look like it all came together perfectly. to make a gay orgy. fuck i hate it when gay orgies accidentally break out on my page!

magezhilo: didn't see your comment there. >> But thanks! I'll try to improve!
the_original_sean: yes, I'll do that! Thanks a lot! I like it when gay orgies appear in my sketchbook. I sell them at eBay.
xobgob: never a problem, and thank you!
Gah.... I'm tired. Not drawn enough. Been up all night doing homework. *rubs temple*
But here's what I've done, not counting the random doodads on whatever paper that appears in front of me.
It's supposed to say 'we're all mad here' at the top of the gun-page, but my scanner didn't pick it up. >>
The colours are way more vibrant in real life. It's for a school assignment...
Ten points to whoever can tell me which part of the gun I forgot!
