    That sounds great Alice, I will check that out later today when I get home. Painting hair is something that puts me off giving more painting a go, I'm too worried about my technique.

    Thanks for the comment!

    Decided I need to do lots of quick sketches, instead of the more detailed ones I have done so far, if I want to improve quicker and get a strong grip of the basics, proportions, etc.

    Does that sound about right?

    Here are some quick/speed sketches. Didn't have time for many yesterday, but I'll probably do quite a few over the weekend.

    Thank you Alice . Not a scratch on your sketches though (but I'm working on it ).

    Now that I have started using ConceptArt a bit more seriously, I feel pretty awful when I go away for a few days and come back with little to show. Been faffing around a bit because I went back to Uni today, so I've got lots of places to be again and bus journeys to enjoy...

    ...anyway, here are some quick sketch pages from the last few days.

    Yeh I don't know why the one below ended up on its own.

    Oh yeah, and if anyone feels my sketches are getting worse, please tell me. I'm someone who until a few months ago was pretty much frightened of putting pencil to paper and now I'm doing these quicker and rougher sketches, I feel a bit paranoid I'm going backwards without realising.

    Royzy, we know you are able to do nice and clean drawing.
    If now you feel you need to make those more rough sketches, just follow your need.
    I know what you mean, I feel the same somethimes. I'm scared about wasting the time doing something bad, but it's all exercise and mileage, so maybe it's good this way
    Maybe try posemaniacs.com and do some fast gesture studies, it could be a good exercise if you want to train the "fast and rough" side

    I have a sketchbook!

    Walid D - Thanks for that! And thanks for visiting. The 'eye' I have started painting was because of the comment you left me. It seems peer pressure really does work!

    J.roxanne Thank you!

    Alice - Yeh, it is annoying isn't it - why can't it be just nice and easy? I did go on posemaniacs after you said and the figures I drew were... awful! Haha. Your right though, it is probably going to work out well in the long run.

    I really didn't want to upload these, but I thought I better since everyone else makes the effort.

    I think I should practice my quick poses a little bit more...!

    Haha anyway, here we go.

    Updates may be sluggish or in bulk for about a week maybe, because I have a group project to finish at uni for next Wednesday. I'll be about though.

    man, those eyes are scary..


    i like the first image you posted in #32. the line was quick and confident, and you got the poses down well. the other ones in that post are stiffer, even if you took more time on them. taking more time on a drawing doesn't necessarily make it better. you actually need to be as quick with 30-minute drawings, as you do with 10-minute drawings (because you are still showing life, and life is movement and confidence).
    with longer poses, you have to deal with organizing more elements (shading for example), so you need to balance your time and consider how much to allocate to the initial marks, and how much time for details, etc. however, you also need keep a consistant rhythm and focus, otherwise your mind wanders and you begin to lose interest.

    try taking the "i don't care" attitude, and get careless and violent with the pencil - it can help in getting over the model's presence. then you will do some rushed drawings, and you'll know the difference between rushed, and quick.

    follow your desires, instincts and gut reactions.

    Hi Royzy
    I see a lot of great works in here, especially the portraits(the first one rulez ,i like it very much)It have sharp spots and blured and that makes it flow in my eye, nice.
    I am glad i find another person working with Mr.Mouse
    Now i think you should keep studying anatomy to upgrade your characters/character movements. Just try to understand how the body works, and the main volumes and everything will come.Loomis have nice ideas in how to simplifie the body.Get a lot of info from different books and understand(and make a lot of quick figures).After that you will be able to make quick , well stand non ref characters with good motion that will help you also in the animation part, which is an aim for you.

    Thank you very much for your kind words in my SB

    Keep up

    It start being nice and easy when you stop thinking too much about the final result and start simply enjoying it! :p

    Good work, btw...keep it up!

    I have a sketchbook!

    I think that your rough sketches are coming along nicely - your 30-sec poses aren't awful at all! They show that you have a knack for confident line-work. I'm actually in a very similar phase as you right now - I want to improve my 'quick sketching' -skills, and I'm doing posemaniacs daily. It's actually pretty fun, isn't it?

    Anyway, keep up the good work! I'll definetely keep an eye on your SB.

    First of all:

    I'm sorry for not posting in so long!

    I've been really busy and I have a few deadlines coming up during the first few weeks of February. Got an essay and background environment projects (conceptual, as well as 3D) to do.

    I'm really pleased with the feedback I had whilst I was away

    Just_Nonplussed - Taking the 'I don't care' attitude is probably one of the most important things for me to achieve, and if I keep doing quick sketches hopefully I'll start to get into that frame of mind.

    Your right, my quicker ones do have more life. If someone had told me that a year ago, I probably would of put my fingers in my ears and gone “LALALALALALALALA I CAN'T HEAR YOU” - but now I understand what I need to do.

    King Kostas - Thank you, I'm glad it flows into your eye nicely! Using Mr. Mousey wasn't my preference, it was a pain for curves. Do you use it by choice?! If so, you are a brave and patient man!

    I downloaded the Loomis books and I have got a few others since Christmas which I think will really help me getting good motion into my drawings - which is essential for my animation, as you said. Now I have to find time to really sit down and read them.

    Alice - I'm trying I'm trying! I'm just not used to it, but now that I see results and improvements, I know I will learn to love it.

    L0rin - Thank you! I'm trying to get in as much digital painting practice as possible, so as I start developing a habit you will definitely see more here.

    Arthe Xavier - Thank you, I'm glad the line work looks confident (my face probably doesn't as I do them though). It is good you are doing posemaniacs daily, I want to get into a good routine of doing them, at least until I'm happy enough to do some without reference.

    Cloister - No worries, you have some great stuff! And thanks - if it is inspirational for people, then I am really pleased.

    areve - Thank you! Haha I'm glad you like my funny face. I will try and finish that eye when I get a chance.

    Right people, I don't have any poses/anatomy homework to show you, I'm sorry. I'll get right back on it when I have a spare few minutes. I know it doesn't take long to sit down and do a few, but my scanner takes a horrendous amount of time to scan. When these deadlines shift I will be churning them out.

    Below is the start of my environments project. I apologise for the hideous scans, I just really can't be arsed to scan each page 3 times to avoid the stains unless it is final work.

    The train wip above will be a 12 field layout when I submit it, but I plan to paint it afterwards. The other 2 environments I have to do for the project require painting anyway, so you will see finish versions of them early February.

    Sorry for the rush post, got so much to do - but so little time!

    King Kostas - Yep, the train will be finished soon hopefully. Having problems juggling essays and such at the minute, it is annoying having so many deadlines at once. Thanks for coming back!

    Just_Nonplussed - Yeh I know I should keep on top of it, it is only for the minute while I get some stuff sorted out. I do want to draw more !

    Right thought I'd do some posemaniacs. Below are some 30 second ones, followed by 10 second ones:

    Cheers King! Yeh I will re analyse that last woman. Some poses I find really hard to get right, that is one that I thought 'hmmmm' as I drew it. I will keep practicing though.

    Here's that train layout I'm going to digi paint. It is my first environment. I quite like the composition I put together, but my draftsmanship ain't so good. I hate having ideas and not being able to make them reality!

    Will probably start doing some environment studies, getting lighting right is something I really need to learn about. Need to practice practice practice.

    Dont worry cause by practicing as long as you can, you will move towards presenting exactly what you think.Thats the magic of drawing and not only drawing things that you see(its boring like that)
    You are in the practice phaze as we are also so we got to keep up
    .
    The sketch is simple with perspective and you will need good skill to color it as you think.
    But it will be a very very good exercise so do it.
    By telling "simple" i mean that in such photos you got to present light/shadow values in a very accurate way so that i will get the feeling of the objects and the space all together.(reflextions in the train etc)

    You will learn a lot.COLOR IT!!!!
    see ya

    Sorry for the lack of updates this last week or so, been really busy, though luckily (or frighteningly) my deadlines are tomorrow so I can start getting back into the habit again.

    King - Yeh I'll just have to keep practicing, which is what I'm here for, so I shall do my best.

    The coloring of the one above I will do in a week or so. I have to do 2 colored environments for tomorrow afternoon. I have done one, which took me longer than expected and now I have less than 24 hours (that doesn't include sleep) to do another painting AND create a room in Maya (which I haven't started either). Stressss.

    It is annoying I have so little time, because the results are less than satisfactory. Ah well, it is all learning.

    Here is the 1st coloured environment study I had been doing.

    My King - Thank you! I'm glad you liked it! Now that I look at it again I feel a bit more pleased about it.

    Haha, but not so much for this piece of crap below!

    The image above really didn't take that long, because I was running out of time for my deadline and I was exhausted. Nevermind ey. When I do my desert train image, it will be a lot better.

    Anyway, to get back in the mood for all this drawing malarky and to get back into updating, here is some more posemaniacs, we all love posemaniacs.

    Cheers guys!

    Long time, no post. Find that if you stop, it is hard to get rolling again. Luckily someone who I know has started uploading. So some motivation there!

    Naturally, some 10 to 45 second posemaniacs to kick off.

    Roy you are incredibly good at poses haha - I really like the seonc image in #38 - the angled birdseye views on the male figures are really good, that's something I'm awful at

    you'll have to show me how to digitally paint properly Really nice stuff dude
