    I will not give up ! RainShinobi sketchbook || 1 PIE for each crit ! :D

    Hi...

    Umm i had a sketchbook here at conceptart.org but due to the low quality of the drawings nobody wanted to comment on my drawings (At least i want to think that is the reason -_-)

    Anyway my name is Liron Gabriel AKA Leon :B Sadly i live in israel.
    I am 18 years old and I want to be a concept artist some day..
    For 2 years now art was a part of my daily life.Evrywhere I go i think about art and i want to express myself through art.
    Even though i find it very very VERY difficult. I know that someday i will make it and i will never give up until i will achive my goal and be a concept artist.
    I will do what ever it takes to get to that goal.

    Darn i tend to talk to much XD so sorry about that burst of emotions

    Anyway i bought a scanner (Finally) and the quality of the pics are allot better...

    P.S
    I have a few questions:
    1) Can i practice anatomy without a living model in front of me ?
    2) Are there any good books about drawing in prespective ?
    3) What is the overall way to enchance my drawing skills ?

    By the way if you guys want to draw on my drawings to show me some guidelines feel free to do it

    Well that is all hope you guys will comment and help me out

    I love conceptart.org!

    Here are the drawings:

    P.S

    I want to learn to draw the human figure better but i dont have allot of poses in my mind .. i tried looking at ref pictures but i didnt knew how to use them because if I copied the model i felt like a robot and i didnt learn anything new .. So can anyone tell me how to work with ref pictures ? and how to work with the anatomy books out there ? Because i bought a book a long time ago i read it but couldnt understand how to use it to improve my skills ... anyway i will post more drawings today

    I think I know what you feel. I don't like copy either, because I tend to copy the lines and not to listen how to construct the body. I'm currently at the stage I know I need anatomy studies, but I don't clearly see the way before me.
    but I do some studies after anatomy books (only if a picture says something to me, I should be interested in it and find it beautiful), I study the human skeleton and the muscle groups (they're essential and I dislike drawing a line because "I saw others do that and it looks good", it's much better to know "oh yeah, biceps femoris is there" and I will never able to draw different poses from my head without such anatomy basics) and draw whenever I find a really tasty-looking sketch, draw poses and stuff sometimes I feel down, but I continue. I'm a perfectionist who usually don't make extreme poses, details and coloring on a messed-up anatomy, I need a solid base first. you seems to be serious too, so if you keep going, there must be progress. sorry that my post wasn't really useful, hopefully you'll have better advice...

    Thank you shiNIN for your post.
    Your post was very useful for me, because its nice to know that someone else in the world share the same feelings,experiences,frustrations that i have.

    I am very thankful for the time you invested to post in my SB .. it keeps my motivation.

    Hey - RainShinobi - I had a look at your posts. There are some great things here! I especially like some of the figure studies where you are looking at the figures from different angles. I know it can be really frustrating - but it is important to play and have fun with all of it. Enjoy the drawing and don't judge too much - with practice comes improvement. You draw better now than the first time you tried - and not nearly as well as you will in six months or a year - so ENJOY IT and have fun. The more your draw the happier you will be with the drawings down the line. I find it really helpful to find places to go drawing - playgrounds, parks, museums - anywhere that is people friendly and has cool stuff to draw. Even if it is just people sitting or walking or a family pet. Drawing living creatures AND the environments they are in will really help. For inspiration - Dover has a great line of books that you are fairly inexpensive that you can look through and drag around and just in general pound on without worrying too much. They are here: http://store.doverpublications.com/b...ry-of-art.html I would pick some ones that seem interesting, and I always prefer to look at drawings over paintings - I am firm believer in the value of drawing as a staring point for all art. Good luck! I look forward to seeing more. P.S. As my long time mentor would constantly say - draw hands and feet!

    Nice work and attitude here! keep in practice and you'l only get better! Nice figure studies - just check the weight they are leaning a bit over! Try think how they should be balanced when drawing.

    Keep it up!

    RainShinobi - I totally agree with what other posters have been saying - your drawings are growing from the first post to the last already. Really great job!! You mentioned you were open to people drawing over the top of you drawings and making suggestions - so here is what I think would be helpful to you. I'd like to see you get as much volume into your drawings as possible. You're starting to do this already - I'd like to see even more. The figure is made up of basic shapes and volumes moving through space. Don't be afraid to overdraw the volume and even exaggerate it a little for now. Remember you can draw around the shapes, make marks and scribble - anything you want to do to get your line to show the forms moving through space. You don't have to outline just the outer shapes either - don't be afraid to draw the structure inside the figure as well. Even if you think you are winding up with too many lines and marks at first - observe people as they move as much as you can and see how they are shaped, see the volumes that make up a person. I made some notes over the top of one of you pages. It's attached. Always draw hands and feet as much as possible! HAVE FUN! Play and enjoy drawing!

    Just saw the most recent posts - these are looking GREAT! Glad I could help out a bit. :-) Keep practicing - and remember to draw from life as much as possible(and draw heads, hands and feet). I subscribed to your sketchbook thread - so I'll pop in and see how you're doing when I can and comment where I think I can help. Keep drawing and have fun with it.
