    AllyAlbon: Thanks! I will draw birds in the future as well, I studied wing anatomy recently


    I couldn't think anything but bike riding so I had to use the only thing that has a chance to grab and keep my attention. Anatomy.
    I continued to work on my skeleton in my last update. I used refs this time and still nowhere I wish it to be but still, a bit better.


    I won't draw anything until Tuesday at least. I will participate in a 48-hour (actually, 52) motorbike tour (I need to go there and back again as well, ~2200 kms). I will ride in _every_ little mountains of this country and maybe I will survive riding 14-15 hours on the first day.

    I'm still tired due to bike riding in the last days and I guess my English sucks but it's the least of my concern now.

    I had no idea you weren't a native speaker until you said you weren't.

    Brilliant skeleton there. Looks a little dark, I think it can do with some highlights, but I love the colours you used and how you mixed a bit of blueish into it.

    No update just replies.

    I'm in a very special mood, it's hard to think about anything else but my bike tour... 5 days, packed with bike riding, turns after turns, it was something extra special and beautiful and tiring Despite the flaws we did because we lacked experience.
    My desire to draw enviros got stronger. As always when I see new and pretty landscapes.

    I'll return the visits I didn't before... Soon. I tend to do them late when my life gets busy or if I'm not in the mood.

    Satupeikko: Thanks

    rumpenstiltzkin: It's waaaaaay better to ride myself. Being a passenger is, like, horrible but riding myself is cool! I've been a coward for a long time but I went to a tour with others and I suddenly leveled up and it's much more fun now!

    Umbravita: Yeah, there are native speakers who are bad. But I could use a better style, a wider vocabulary and a perfect grammar It's hard to be a perfectionist.
    You're right, I tend to use too little contrast sometimes.. It's still a wip, I focused on the anatomy and not the colors and contrast but I should do it right... It's hard for me to focus on everything. The grayer/warmer idea isn't mine, I saw it in one of my references


    I'll draw something if I got over this "motorbike tour drunk" state It's not bad but I can't stay like this forever

    I really should draw my bike as a cute girl anyway. She's a source of endless inspiration, I just need to start and design her... I think.

    Hi there sweet heart!!

    A bike ride! cool! I hope you took loads of pictures as references and some good ones to paint, you could post some too if you felt that way inclined.
    I have to confess that I havn't been on in quite a while either I have been helping out at my boy's school with some kids that didn't read very well and were quite disruptive. I am very pleased to say that I have got them back on the right track too which is good (8 weeks of 2 hours a day). I used my skills with drawing silly cartoons and being a bit of an idiot to get them drawing some of their own stuff and writing nursery rhymes and stories, they had such a good time they didn't realise they were learning to read and write by default. That was pretty cool and i enjoyed it immensely.

    Love and bast wishes to you and your guy and I will try harder to be on more often, if you will too.

    all the best.

    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    Lightship, I'd love to know you in person I think we could be pretty silly together, in a very joyful way, making dry gray folks raise eyebrows...

    AdrianNagorski: I always bring my SB with me everywhere - and extremely rarely draw something. I had an excute on the bike tour... 10-16 hours in the saddle doesn't mix well with drawing One night I hadn't even enough time for sleeping. And I suck at drawing by myself My SB is full with copied stuff.

    Steeliebob: Thanks. I don't even start how fake this all feels, I mean, my progress. I know I have more skills than the average more or less beginner fanartist teen - but their productivity and bravery is way more than mine. They do horrible stuff too but that's another thing. I need to DO something with my little skills already.

    Plissken: Sorry... But I'm too lazy to feel quilt I fear.


    I'm horribly lazy and can't find my way back to drawing. Nothing unusual.

    I still managed to draw this and that. Of course, nothing by myself, my mind is kinda empty. Refd stuff is hard enough at the moment and better than nothing.

    A few days ago:


    Crystal fail, maybe yesterday:


    I got motivated yesterday and did the most work on it today (it should be sharper here and there but I'm generally pleased with it, the colors alone went crazy at some parts):


    I've found a site with mostly crystal skulls... There are some real beauties there, for 1 or 2 thousand dollars... Whatever, I will be happy with cheaper stuff It's really shocking I have only one skull, my decorated bronze one. I started to paint it once and never finished. It's a bit detailed for my patience.

    That tree painting gives me such a good relaxing feeling
    and the reflection on this bird skull looks so bloody good.

    I drew that rutilated quartz again.
    I'll be away for a few days. I better draw a shitload of enviros (mostly clouds) when I come back. They interest me way too much.


    I drew a lil pic by myself about Teresa picking strawberries in the rain (she had to stay down there at our strawberry bed, it's impossible to climb uphill in the mud with her) but it's extremely childish so I don't wanna show it. But it's worth to mention I actually did something by myself. It's the second attempt lately. And I guess my word order isn't right, sorry.

    I like the feeling of transparency and light you express in the rutilated quartz. The way the crystal bird skull shines is also appealing. I'm awaiting for your own comics! I'm sure you'll capture me to be a fan~ Come on!

    'Ello shiNIN!

    4 pages since my last visit!! It's great to see all your new work!!

    Like the gestures and expression studies, and faces and mouths etc since my my last visit starting at #994.

    I couldn't agree more with our friend...the eminent sir Plissken...about these images of yours!!

    I'm digging your bird studies in #1057! Dunno why but I enjoy painting boids myself.

    I think the crystal boid skull is my favorite since my last visit...so cool! And the transparency and light in your last post of the quartz is really good too!

    Anywho...please keep all the tasty work coming!

    Ciao fer now

    Hi there darlin!!

    I would just like to reply to this before I go anywhere else:-

    "I'd love to know you in person I think we could be pretty silly together, in a very joyful way, making dry gray folks raise eyebrows... "

    That sounds like a brilliant Idea!! the only problem is that I look like Mr Incredible before he went on the diet, and am a whole lot more mental ........ so that might put you off a bit, that and I have been known to drink like a fish and sing silly songs when drunk!

    As to the art I would love to see some more of your environments and other stuff, its been ages since you had a bash at them. The tree up there is rather nice though it has a very organic and almost liquid quality to it which is rather nice and unusual.

    all the very best to you my mate, as always

    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    I do understand about motorbikes. Although I don't drive I have loved being a pillion passenger - especially going over a humped back bridge, sliding forward and having the driver land on top of you - try sorting that out at 70mph. Fun days.

    Skeleton is looking good.

    This is for you.




    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    It's high time to show something, too bad I did nothing but I show you that nothing nonetheless.
    I was busy, then tired and totally not in a mood to draw, oh the garden is quite lively nowadays so I'm much outside at least. It's way better than spending my time on forums.

    untier: As soon as I will feel I can do something by my own, I'll do my first, probably very simple little comic thing... I really should I know. Thanks for your visit and kind words.

    Jephyr X: I actually never really loved drawing birds, except nice big flying wings but egrets showed me it's just as fun as drawing mammals

    Satu: Thanks and you are right. I went being inactive again... And even when I do something, it's just some lame studies or plain doodles.

    Lightship: I don't see any problem What's wrong with being mental, anyway? We'd drink together and talk about things people normally don't or if they do, their views are different than ours. It would be fun.
    You are way too far. I haven't even met Plissken and he's quite close.
    I'm a lazy one.

    Black Spot: Thanks

    dierat: 38 pages aren't such a big deal. In my case, it means:
    1. I started long ago
    2. I'm very stubborn to keep it alive even if I rarely can make myself to draw something.
    3. People visit me. I still can't understand them but I like them and feel a bit ashamed I can't entertain them more.
    Unfortunately, I have no bigger version, I tend to do in tiny... Only some master studies are exceptions.

    My stuff then. It's really bad because I can't give my all. I have more knowledge than this.

    Thanks

    Last night I broke the ice, I'm interested in drawing again. My old favourite, heads.
    I tried to draw the first one from memory, I don't want to show the result... But I'm no good in general yet, I need to get warmed up.

    Hey, sorry I didn't drop by earlier, you've got some great stuff going on in here. I especially love the quartz study that you did, really feel like it exudes a lot of character.

    It's good to hear that you feel like drawing again (hope I'm not jinxing it or anything by talking about it), but I really feel like you're thinking about it too much and making it harder on yourself. Sometimes... you just got to draw, you know? Don't worry about how it look,s what people are going to say about it, and all that. Just draw.

    Unless you get that feeling back, I really fear that it's going to be an uphill task for you. I remember some time back when I wanted to reach a certain standard which I thought was the bee's knees, I was super conscious of what I drew. And that really made my life a lot more difficult than it had to be.

    What I'm saying is, don't let unnecessary expectations bring you down, okay? Just keep doing what you're doing, and let the rest of it figure itself out.

    Hey good to hear you are back to drawing!
    I like the values on these heads and the first skull on post 1133. Very glossy, or shiny, what's the word.

    Accidental keystrokes and lost comments, I know them so well. Well you will get less blurb, just the saved part.

    Satu: Thanks

    Vritra: "Just draw" - well that's the most difficult part, you know. Right now I'm pleased if I just draw, no matter what, it will change soon though, I can't turn my inner critic off... (And I so totally should be way better by now, I should at least draw like crazy and level up a few times in row...) But it's okay if I just don't stop. I guess. I know it doesn't seem like that but I have fun when I draw and I don't completely destroy my self confidence just because I see I can't draw at all...

    I try to help myself, I don't choose topics I know I need to practice, I draw stuff I love, that's why there are so much crystals and skulls here
    The Hyrtl collection is lovable, it would be so cool if I could buy some replica skulls I'd love an own Geza and the sailor man has a beautiful skull as well... *sigh*
    Quick sketches, some got abandoned before it started to look decent.


    Tonight I was outside, it felt good, I looked at an old SB and doodled a bit. Nothing interesting to show but I show it anyway, maybe because I'm so happy I draw again even if these are just the boring usual stuff:

    I think you're really getting the hang of lighting, especially on shiney objects, your colour sketches have some great depth about them. Although I think the both of us could do with some time spent working on our lineart, or at least some more confidence with lines. I see it in your work in places but most of it is broken.
    When I find out a good way to practice for line quality I'll bring it back to you too.

    Constructive criticism is always welcome.
