    Satupeikko: The fancy brushes thing is true sometimes too but this time I had a hard time with colors and "how to approach this scene with zillion rocks and trees and whatnot". What to leave, what to draw, how to paint a sketch that isn't a mess... I'm not used to enviros very much and even if I draw one, I tend to choose a simple one...
    That man face was the first one I drew from memory afterwards. I know very well I should do that but doing it another after I got bored with it and stopped the first one.. I'm not cut out for that. It's a big step I drew gesture sketches over and over again
    I think I'd prefer to draw it not in copying mode the first time. I don't like my brain activity when I copy. I analyze and understand but if I look at the original a lot, my brain got lazy and my memory goes on holiday...
    I don't think I need the inactive bad days Struggling but drawing is fine but I wanna draw and draw and draw! And feeling great all the time. Is it that much to ask?
    When I'm warmed up, I feel good enough while drawing
    How can I write infinite amounts here I don't know... I better stop now. Thank you for your post. Sweet posts are nice when I'm down but there are much better when I'm already well. I LOVE doing enjoyable things when I already feel good. I'm a hedonist, after all. And I need company. I like the personal sketchbooks and comments the best.

    Plissken: Oh no, I had enough hard times! Or is it for you? What about being happy together and having our best art period ever both? I'd even share my Russkij Standard with you, it's my favourite vodka at the moment and I have a new bottle, I'm trying this out now ~

    Hi people, I feel great! Did you know there is Oreo Milka? Omnomnom.
    And I bought several new thin markers and brush pens It's time to draw something with them.

    I started to draw another pink haired blurryness, this time it's a front view (tilted down), maybe I won't mess up this one. But I didn't see the nose this time either so I searched a bit. I found a better photo, the face was great there, too bad the colors were crazy yellow and orange, burned... I'm not good at doing the skin coloring by myself... And it isn't similar enough to the original :-/
    Whatever, I upload it because I feel like it and I don't want my cute friend, Satupeikko to feel lonely
    beginning of a long way... (mild nudity)

    EDIT:
    I worked another hour on it. I was desperate; I tried to use all my copying skills in zoomed in mode, I even looked at the whole and stuff. In the very end, using just a few minutes it got much better. Still nothing like the sweeeeeet original, mind you.
    beginning of a long way... (mild nudity)

    EDIT2:
    I really should use my eyes to see... I drew something else (the same girl but I used other photos) then I made my longer study better. I hate move features. Why can't I see them well in the first place? I really try but I can't and rendering can make things worse because I don't focus on the whole thing that well.
    beginning of a long way... (mild nudity)

    Still oh so totally a wip. I don't accept such a result as final.

    Hmm, by the time I was absent, you've significantly improved your faces. That's badass. If only I had your dedication to improving...

    (sorry if I sound strange, it 3 AM and I'm on the verge of collapsing from sleep deprivation)

    Guardian G.I.:
    Did I? I rarely look back but my inner critic has an idea about my level where I should be so he thinks I definitely suck.
    My better faces look way too much time too.
    I mess up proportions epically.
    I need practice, a level up and after then we can talk about my face drawing skills
    I dunno about my dedication either, maybe it shows I really want to improve - but I don't go with my all. It's a very awkward situation but I'm getting more serious (with occassional inactive waves in between, just to make my life less boring).
    Aww, I'm sorry, it's what on my mind so I can't write a post without mixing it in...


    I keep drawing Lee (the Korean singer). I'd unbelievably hard. Normally, I don't need to redraw face features this many times

    Oh and I chose a not easy enviro for Tegaki where even colors are limited, not mentioning brushes. Sometimes I like challenges too much. It's awful at the moment but I will switch to PS for this piece. I expect my enviros to be bad for a while (it heavily depends on the ref, of course) but I can level up easily because I'm so unskilled at them. Enviros can make my life easier after tricky Korean eyes - and they are useful anyway.

    I don't find my cloud photos I did a lot of though, well some of them is still in raw format on cards. And I can't shot new ones anyway, we have the same time clouds around here all the time. Still, I hate when things just disappear when I want to use them

    What is too much time? This isn't a race. Get things right slowly at first and then speed will follow eventually. Get things wrong and no matter how many time you quickly sketch it, it's not going to improve that much. Draw smart, draw right.

    Black Spot: It's true in general, it's not even a big deal that this koreal gal was much slower than my usual referenced faces. But it was a struggle and a hit and miss method. When spending 1 hour having a sketch that isn't an improvement compared to nothing and I need to completely redraw it, it's disappointing. Especialy after so much wasted time in the last years. Something changed, I'm in a mood when I desire to draw. No matter what the topic is. It's a blessed state, I'm not used to it. I need to hurry and draw a lot, maybe it can't fly away overnight then. I need to see much stuff I've just did too. I had too dark times when I barely drew. The next day my critic will say I totally must do something decent by myself and it will be just the beginning...
    Maybe it's not so easy to be me but I feel kinda good now

    Guarian G.I.: Mostly from the Net. I used old books before. For my pencil heads, newspapers... I'm not particularly choosy.

    It was a nice day, I'm a bit unfocused, I want to do everything I did a lot of tiny sketches that aren't worthy to show, just side effects of studying.
    I think I won't work on this girl anymore:

    I wished to do something different. I used my favourite fractal pic as reference. I need to do it again.

    Who, it was a while since I was here last time xd. Good stuff lately, you working hard, that's for sure. I like how you convinced form on this one http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/h...gfx/emese2.jpg

    Try to pay more attention to edges (hard vs soft) and keep pushing. Cheers

    Hey girl, how are you doing? Are you feeling alright? Why no updates for almost a week? I did something shiny to cheer you up, blin bling

    I like these Lee portraits you made. I'll be waiting for more cool stuff!

    I lost my post. I'll be quick then. I wasn't very long anyway.

    Ramalooke: Thanks. I've read about hard vs soft edges a few times, it interests me a lot but it always seemed so pro and distant, I don't know how to do it...

    Zporpnitteg: It's because I started a long time ago and was stubborn since then. I really don't improve quickly.

    Satupeikko: I'm sorry... The reason will follow.


    I lost my will to drawing, like, completely, a few days ago.
    I'm curious and ever and serious and somewhat patient so maybe I will do anatomy studies (I better do them... they are the easiest to do for me because anatomy is so interesting, if I start to study, I can't stop Looking is okay, drawing is another thing).
    I don't know what will happen.

    My sticker on Teresa, ugly numbers drawn with a little stick, only one paint was fit for the role, my beautiful marker numbers came off in an instant. Not like it's visible on this photo... Behind Teresa, my own bike, Ciliegia can be seen:

    I had an arm anatomy day. It was good.

    Your motorcycle have just sang a new song;
    it's time to ride again. And to draw.

    Plissken: I rode her in the last two days. 713 kms, not much but damn tiring, rain, hills, U turns, whatnot. My eyes are shining, my body is a bit aching It's hard to ride with 16 others together but it didn't ruin my FE (fuel efficiency) I think.
    Cili isn't well now, her chain is in bad condition. It's good we already have an appointment for maintenance (her 30000th km is very near), a new windshield and... I could continue but it's not such a forum
    I really have to draw her already

    Of course, I had no time to draw while riding, today I just wrote into motorbike forums and rested, my garden needs work as well and I'm a lazy person.
    I see pretty stuff I wish to paint... one day... Not yet.
    Some older half-assed stuff:

    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.
