    Well. Uhm. Hi?

    Haven't been here for a billion years... We're done with the mock exams, real exams are coming up. Homework is killing me. >>
    As I said, my scanner have died, and taking a picture of everything I've drawn would take a million years. I submit the things I've already photographed for my girlfriend to look at. >XD
    Lazy, me? Noooo...

    The two ladies lying on the two first pictures are drawn from photos (will credit the photographers when I get their names, I have it somewhere...), as well as the two guys on the third page (though these are redrawn to fit the characters). The mermaid's upper body is also referenced. Slight reference for the pose of Magical Girl Utena-lady on picture 4.

    Yay for lack of progress. =_____=

    Well there's progress, lines are more confident for example. Do more studies though! Having basic knowledge of muscles and stuff is a good start... actually you might wanna start with the skeleton. Sigh.. i shouldn't be giving out advice when im a newb. Ok well one solid advice is to just keep drawing when you have time, preferably everyday whether it be 10mins or some hours. Ye... so keep at it!

    I think you and I are in the same boat in that you're a student and I'm a teacher, so wer're both really busy now. Wait three weeks, and then we can both focus on our art again. Try more studies from life. I like all the little still life objects, etc. Keep that up, and try some portraits, looking in a mirror, or study faces in magazines.

    If you want to improve do anatomy studies, lots of them. Start with the bones as Imaginary said and work your way out. They can get really boring and tedious but next time you draw a figure from your head you'll notice the differance. Tis very satisfying actually seeing your own progress happen

    O hay thar.
    Guess who got her scanner back?

    I have drawn more than this, obvously. These are just selected works from, eh... well, 23. and 24 of June.

    What? It's a goddamn LOT to scan! I'm seriously not going to scan everything. Especially not now. I wanna draw now. So this will do for now. Upload more tomorrow. Or the day after. Or something.

    Scanning is boring...

    @Imaginary: thanks a lot! I have taken your advice and practiced skeletal structure, ESPECIALLY the legs. Legs are a friggin' pain. And head angles. Goddamn head angles... anyway, I'll keep up the work! So you better stop on in here sometimes and kickstart me and tell me what I'm doing wrong, you hear?!

    @TASmith: hell yes. Finally summer! I've been going at now (but not as much as I've wanted... so I've given myself a work-plan to keep it consistent). I haven't done still-lives or too many portraits, though... I'll do that tomorrow! Thanks a lot!

    @Faust: thank you! I'll keep it up!

    @Zorcron: Thanks! I'll do some more still-lives with more complicated things... one of my quirky habits is picking up pretty much everything I find on the ground that isn't complete garbage. I think it's about time I gave my shit some special attention... like a still-life, yes (unlike you believe in Toy Story... then I guess it's a portrait..?)

    @L0rin: right on, I will (and have, at least a little)! I'll do it every day! Especially that damn skull and stupid head-angles... Oh, oh, and see what I did there? See, I did the 18 rule! Praise my awesomeness in following you artist-folk's tips!

    EDIT: Damn, I forgot to mention WHAT I studied! Thanks to BlackDelphin for reminding me!
    The ears and eyes are from Anatomy Drawing School, and the skulls from Loomis' "Drawing the Head and Hands". And now you know!

    jesus christ talk about discipline. 18 of each thing. i've been meaning to do that, but a guy told me it was 30. i still don't want to do 18. wanna have some fun studying anatomy? download aclands atlas of anatomy. it's an IN DEPTH dvd of a human dissection. intended for medical purposes so there's a lot of useless stuff but it's a fantastic supplement to artists anatomy books.

    Aaah just look at those studies!!
    I totally dig those ears!! And i agree ^^; scanning in could be a drag, but i get nervous too when i think that it could not look good...

    That aside, keep at it!!!!
    You're really dedicated so far so you're bound to succeed

    And btw after what are you studying? Loomis?

    My girlfriend decided that I should scan instead of bothering her. So I did. Scanned some of the practice stuff from the same sketchbook as the last post. I'll... not submit everything. I think it's 28 pages or something. I'll keep it until tomorrow or the day after or some day after that or never. I dunno.
    Enjoy, I guess. *cough*

    @the_original_sean: Thank you so much! And yeah, it's pretty boring to imagine it. But when you sit down with some music and lots of time on your hands, it's actually pretty relaxing. And wow, I've looked into it, and that DVD-collection looks AMAZING! It would be awesome to have!

    @BlackDelphin: wow, thanks a lot! Yeah, I've drawn mouths, (profile-)noses, ears and eyes... but the ears was the hardest ones! And also the ones I put the most effort into, simply because I can't draw then for shit. And golly! I hope I'll succeed!
    Also, scanning is a drag. And editing is a drag. If it wasn't for the fact that CA is awesome, I'd be too lazy to ever do it.

    My girlfriend left. Now I'm lonely. )8
    Just submitting the rest of the art before drowning you in my newer stuff. Didn't draw that much when my girlfriend was here. Who can blame me?
    ... well, everyone can. Bad excuse is bad.

    Hard getting back to my grinding habits after such a long time off it. I've practically wasted two days already. Well, at least I've learned a shitload from the CA online classes. Learning is sexy.

    Hi there
    I said I'd be checking SB's out... so here I am!
    I've had a quick look through your sketchbook, and I have to say I can see a definate improvement from the start to where you are now! The anatomy studies are looking solid, I can see that you have a good understanding of it, but keep going! You can only get better with practice

    I posted this in Morte's sketchbook, but I will post it here too:
    http://www.stanprokopenko.com/blog/2009/05/draw-eyes/ - This blog has some articles, giving advice and pointers on how to draw parts of the face, such as the eye, nose, lips, ears etc. I saw you have already done studies on them, but if you are confused on anything, or just want to study them more, I would definately recommend looking at the articles he has posted. I definately found it helpful, although I havent put his advice to paper yet, soemthing I will do in time.

    Keep up the greatwork you have here, Monkeydominator! I should go and work now... feel free to kick me into gear if you see me slacking
    Good luck!
