    @ NoŽ: Tnx When I find the time for more sketches (more line based sketches) I'll use a more permanent medium (like markers, ballpoints?).
    I think that might be helpfull here. (blah english... -_-' ... it's way too early for that)
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Oke, new update .

    The first sketch is quite weird. There was nothing to draw in the train, so I tried to visualize myself sitting as I sat there. As if I was someone in front of me, looking at myself (like a mirror that wasn't actually there).
    It was hard, but I like it anyway.


    The ballpoint things are classmates (done in 4 min. I guess).


    Third one is a photo of the still life composition we had to paint in 2D-class. It has to be in some way abstract, and I don't really like the way they want you to do that at my school.
    4; My interpretation of the still life
    5; The teacher didn't like it so he gave me some paper; 'paste this with your eyes closed somewhere in your work'.
    6; I tried to paint over the paper pieces, but then he decided there wasn't enough paper in it. I had te paste more with my eyes closed...
    7; I painted over the paper, but had to rip (?) it off again (again; the teacher told me that).
    8; The result after 3 hours of trying to safe this crap thing. I hated to work this way. I think the problem was that I tried to make something the teacher would like. Not something I like myself.


    9/10/11: process of 'Wytches Brew' song component (from mind).


    12; Waterhouse study (tried to sketch in different way that I used to draw/sketch)

    13; Waterhouse study, eye from mirror, girl from ref.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Pfew, large update

    the last sketches are very nice, especially the sleeping pose (10 mins), captured very beautifully. Did u use white chalk or pastels?

    the last two B&W drawings are sweet, but don''t forget to do those anatomy studies. You need to work more on proportions and line quality.

    Good luck and keep it up

    Hamorhage: Tnx I use soft white colourpencil.

    Amilian: Tnx

    zelda_geek: Tnx . I know I have to do more anatomy studies, but I'm also very busy with school (oke.. the last two things in previous update aren't school things ) right now .
    Btw: I did some sketches at the bottom of 3rd page .

    When I browse through other SB's on CA, I see in every thread several anatomy studies. I guess non-nude anatomy studies are oke too?


    Well, I did some handstudies this afternoon (real life). And the dance poses are from pictures of me while dancing at Wytches Brew (yes, again another part of the 'Wytches brew' project). I think I'm going to choose one of 25 poses to show the energy of the music.
    If I continue these studies, the drawings are going to be sloppy, so there's only 7 /25 .

    Spectacular portraits. inspirational stuff. as you say you do very traditional style work!
    keep on those body studies they seem to be your weakest part yet still they look as though they are on their way to getting stonger.
    keep it up!

    last sketches look awesome! and you seem to have a nice touch to traditional medias! I should spend more of my time with oilpainting, but it takes too much time

    chriis.zed, `ej, NoodleDoodle: tnx!
    The Ham: thank you I know the body studies aren't great, but I don't always see what's wrong. For example the ink drawing/painting below. I see that it's not good, but I don't see it in most of the dance poses studies.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    I don't understand how you can insert an attachment file into the post itself, so you can tell something about it next to the image itself.
    Would someone explain it to me ?
    EDIT; thnx for explaining to me how to insert the attachments NoŽ

    We went to Artis Zoo in Amsterdam during 2D classes (that's 5 minutes from my school).
    The animal sketches are all done in 15 sec. of 30 sec. Except maybe the lion sketch.
    They are done with blue/pink ink (ecoline), because I left my black ink at home. Drawn with a cotton wool stick (you know, for your ears...).
    It was really hard. I'm not happy with it, but I upload it anyways.

    The dance poses again, picture taken in better light.

    Attachment 623141


    These are 100x70 cm.

    First one done with acrylics (face isn't done yet)

    Attachment 623142

    second one made with ink (I see that the anatomy isn't good )

    Attachment 623144

    I didn't make a quick sketch before I started painting. That's hard, especially with ink, because you can't make any mistakes. But that makes it kinda fun too


    Pfieuw... now I have to go to school again.

    I really love your work on the gray paper , it's so elegant and soft I need to do some of those studies with drapery too, great work. I love sketching at the zoo. It's really great for learning and fun too ^^

    Hey marlisa!

    It's been a while since I visited here so here comes my little post with ideas and helpfulness (hopefully haha )

    How to put your attachments in your posts is a bit hidden indeed after you uploaded your attachments, you have to click on the little paperclip icon above the writing area (it's next to the fonts, sizes and smiley).. Then you get a dropdown menu of all the images you have attached, and when you click one, that puts it in your post. Usually with posts with lots of images it's easier to click "insert all", which inserts every image into your posts immediately. You can still write between the images, and use "preview post" to see if everything looks correct. Also another tip for uploading attachments: to avoid to have to fill in each dropdown menu and the copyright information each time you upload an image: Just fill in the information, upload the first image, then after that is done you hit the backspace, or right click -> back, and you go back to the previous screen with all the filled in information. Then you click browse and pick the next file you want to upload, and it uploads with the already filled in information.. Saves a lot of time!!

    You said that you can see that some anatomy isn't correct, but you can't point out what, right? It's best to train this yourself ofcourse because if others tell you, then you still can't find it out for yourself. So here are some tips to find out:
    - Step back from the painting/drawing and compare your drawing to your reference picture without looking at details, just general proportions. Maybe even take a picture and look on the little LCD screen on your camera.
    - Measure, I mean not like with a ruler but with your fingers or pencil. You might for example see that on a reference picture half of the length of the entire body is from the body to the hips, and the other half is from hips to feet, then you might see that you made the legs a little too short on your drawing or something like that. When you think something is wrong with an area of your drawing, just try to measure those parts of the reference and compare a little.
    - Also take angles into account. Sometimes an arm goes down from the shoulder when in your drawing it might go up. This is just a difference of a few degrees in your angle, but the elbow and hand will end up on a completely different place.

    I did see a few things on those dancers that could be better, but maybe you want to figure them out for yourself first? Just PM me otherwise and I'll tell you what I found

    By the way, I love the dancers, really like the drawings and the paintings as well And the lions are so nice!! Can't believe you did that with a bit of cotton stick thing haha that must have been hard!

    Well, I'll have to go now, going to go to my parents for a night and a day to use their sewing machine to make a huge character (Letter) for Typography.. Hope it'll work..
    Keep up the good work! I really like how you're improving with the bodies and paintings

    Love!
    Marleen.

    @NoŽ! tnx so much!


    Right now I haven't much time to study anatomy, because I'm behind with schoolstuff too. There are some assignments that I don't like at all.. but I have to do them ofcourse so that's my problem right now.
    Unfortunately I'm very ehm.. stubborn (I hope that's the right word for it), I love to draw or paint every day! Yes, even if i also have to draw all day at school.

    So I do the anatomy studies anyways... even now I don't have the time for it

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Small update:

    I made this one thursday at school. I think three poses are enough.

    Attachment 626034


    I thought it might be cool to do all three in B&W, with different mediums.
    But it goes together with the very bright coloured abstract thing, and maybe that doesn't work together . I don't know.
