    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    I hope I'll be able to maintain what's stated in the title (at least artwise ) as this sketchbook grows bigger. And it will certainly grow since my goal is to update it every day with whatever I draw that (except it is some really horrible practice).

    This said, let's start with something ooooold (from august and november 2007).

    And here is some more recent stuff, nothing from today tough.


    Some digital sketches

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Some of my practice scrap papers, I number them to better keep track of my progress (and probably to have a reason to be pissed off if I see stagnation for a too long period)
    Oh yeah, I'm going through the Loomis books right now, just to mention

    If not otherwise indicated, they're all from imagination

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity) Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity) Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    and lastly 2 drawings from life. The models didn't keep a pose. After all I didn't ask them to

    heya wellcome to ca :] ops you`re not that new after all. well it was about time you stopped lurking around :]
    i see you`ve got a grasp on how to render out form and how light affects objects. what you need is to loosen
    up the hand and gain more confidence which comes with alot of drawing :]

    Mattinian haha, yeah it was about time, Thanks for the reply. I'm aware of that lack of confidence in my lines, been a problem for years for me. And I think every improvement comes with a lot of drawing, it's only up to your brain how fast that improvement comes


    So here are some practice sheets from today. Didn't have much time so I made quickies and trying not to draw a line more than once.

    And lastly a not so speedy speed paint, still my best face without reference yet (at least I hope so xD)

    Hey man
    Doing great so far
    I think you should really just keep it up with the studies
    I can give you 1 tip which i think could have helped me in the begginging
    Really when your studying, just really get into it try to really understand it and break it down for your brain. It's a bit like get lost in it and you'll learn much more quicker
    Just keep it up remeber, you just gotta love it
    peace

    lilnebo thanks! and thanks for the tip, I'll definitly try to go deeper into studying.
    Though practice without any reference is just as cruacial since you can spot what you still ahve problems with very easily.


    So today I managed to push my production even further, and guess what it's becoming more and more fun every time! I guess I start posting the images in the order they were created for the true progress >: D

    First practice (right after I got out of bed)

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    This one was for getting mroe looseness
    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Then a photo study, I've learnt two things with this one: Don't start picking warm colors right ahead if you are actually aware that the overall color sheme is cold and secondly my values suck when I concentrate on color picking <.<

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    a still life, learning to love them already

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    another photo study this time applied what I've learnt previously

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    then another two practice sheets

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity) Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    and last but not least a 1h doodle, I kinda like it. Maybe it's because I used M@'s brushes :_D

    Hey Kurjuus, nice to see you are studying loomis and anatomy as well. Definitely the key things for you at this point.
    Those digi portraits are really good. Definitely your best ones. Take in some facial anatomy it will help a ton with the portraits and definitely continue with loomis and the anatomy books! And yeah life studying is the key for sure.

    trout thanks for the comment, though I wish the stuff without reference would be my best work. But that's future dreams so I think I should work harder

    yousa Heya, thanks for the tip. I'll consider that in the next study, so I rather render it with my own color palette having the anatomy in mind.


    Today I thought I just make some studies after all those comments, though I take just a small break from non-referenced work

    Firstly something from Loomis

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity) Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Then a really though photo study, this hab just very little value range and it seems I've failed the to pick the colors more than anything else, I was fed up with that after an hour or D:

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    after that a self portrait with pencil, yes I'm aware that eyes and ears have errors, but I don't like to use eraser on an 8B pencil, in fact I don't like erasers at all xD

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    a messy still life in my sisters room (I didn't set up anything )

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    and a value study from a colored photo. Didn't make it completely right as I noticed after I desaturated the reference, but it's at least better than my coloring.

    Only 3 images for today... the heat is making me lazy <.<

    2 Still Lives

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)


    and here I used the advice Yousa gave me, in a different manner though. Instead of jsut looking up the anatomy while studying I decided to anaylize it. So I've drawn the contours and surface of a random head from a photo and layed the skull and muscles on it while constantly looking up reference material. Learnt a bit more again.

    Okie dokie. First thing. I know I never used to use erasers and still feel kinda weird using them but the fact is erasers should be your best friend until you are so skilled that you know exactly where to make every line, why you are making it and knowing that it belongs there. Until that day comes you erase everything that isn't right because it will help you improve.

    Very nice life studies, good colors and values and shows the form well.
    And that last exercise you did look's very nice. When I get to the level I definitely need to be doing those!

    Keep it up buddy.

    yousa - thanks mate! I actually used erasers today after all

    lilnebo
    - Glad to hear that and you can count on my two cents whenever my experience allows to open my mouth


    Today again only 3 images

    BUT

    I learned tons

    BECAUSE

    I've got the Sheppard anatomy book ^____^ yay
    it explains awesomely awesome how quite everything of the humand body functions, even veins! I found it way more easy to understand than what's in the bridgman book.

    but first image of the day was a practice without reference again. My best up to date imo, at least within the head area

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    and here are two pages about the arm, frontview and backview

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity) Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    I'll try to make more again tomorrow

    Yay, 5 images today
    Moar studies

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    then two practice sheets

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity) Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    then again studies

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    and then I did something I've never finished since the 6th grade again. I made a character design took 3hours and the arm studies already came in handy, though I'm not finished with that chapter yet.

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity) Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    Hey man, many thanks for stopping by

    It's hard to make any crits per se, because you're doing everything right and on the right track. You're studying your foundations, bone knowledge is essential to be excellent at anatomy.

    Don't forget to throw in gestures inbetween, though, to keep practicing your line and make it fluid. That'll also help you to keep your figures flexible, because studying bones and muscles all the time might make your figures stiff eventually, because these studies are quite static by nature.

    Otherwise, keep up the good work and updating

    AsaB hey, thank you. Glad to hear that. I consider to throw in some gestures here and there though I don't really want to focus on them yet. Otherwise that's a good point about the stiffness. I've noticed it myself that I find it quite hard to make lively and fluid poses so I think I shall give them a couple of more room in my work.

    And now some more bones!

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    And a grayscale portrait

    Of everything and nothing (some nudity)

    I've been playing games for too long today <.< and making the logo takes more time than expected (maybe because I lack the motivation xD).

    The anatomy studies are on their way! make sure to study the relations between bones/muscles, and not just singling out each form. Also, keep your eye on proportions, keep checking the lines you're making in relation to the whole drawing, use negative and abstract shapes as guides!
    keep it up, the fruit studies are awesome!

    very interesting to see all your bone studies! i'm trying to learn the body by a more geometric approach at the moment. i can't even imagine to memorize all those bones and their names

    keep on!

    Ok ok, lemme help you out here
    Your starting great with the bones, but really rendering them and spending alot of time on them would porbably only help your lines, form and render which is good but if we're talking anatomy then its all made easy.
    Really unless you wanna be the bone master the dude who draws bones all the time just draw a full skeleton and study how the bones move in that skeleton.
    For example the knee bends backword and forward, the arms bend way, the torso does alot of movment. Just do studies of a full skeleton and move the body parts, you can look at how your own body moves and just do the same to the skeleton.
    After that start seeing where the muscles go on top of the skeleton and which bones stand out like the back of the elbow and which bones are anchors for the muscles, like the collar bone, pelvis, ribcage etc.
    Oh and remeber to do drawings from mind, trust ME you will suffer if you don't try to put everything you learned into full drawings of the body from mind.
    Keep it up
